For a bisexual individual, the process [of Coming Out] can be difficult for different reasons than coming out as lesbian and gay due to a variety of stereotypes plaguing this identity specifically.
As AJ wrote in her HuffPo piece, “Bisexual in a Gay/Straight World”—“We’ve all heard the stereotypes: indecisive, confused, wanting the best of both worlds, promiscuous, gay or lesbian in transition, engaging in a fad, seeking attention. If you identify as “bisexual,” you’ve likely encountered at least a few of these clichés during and after your coming out process. I know I have. Despite the slew of us out there attempting to dispel such myths on a daily basis, they continue to be perpetuated, and they continue to make life difficult for us all.”
It took me years to become fully comfortable with the label “bisexual” for myself. Despite having had crushes on and attractions to individuals across the gender and sexuality spectrums from the age of five or six on, it wasn’t until my Junior year of college that I actually said, “I’m bisexual” … By the time I was around the age of 20 … began to realize that I had the capacity to love multiple genders and — despite my fears — I started to embrace this.
When I first came out as bisexual to my family mere months after coming out to myself and the Gay-Straight Alliance at my college, it was my mother … In the seconds after my admission, my mother’s eyes grew wide, she turned around and walked out … without a word. My heart dropped and I vowed to myself not to bring it up again. I figured this might just be a part of my life she couldn’t handle. I didn’t broach the subject again for several months; but, I couldn’t keep it in forever like I initially thought … So, I felt compelled to try once more. When I did, my mom told me that she thought I was going through a “phase” – a term I would hear countless more times from her over the years.
In my coming out experience with my mother, I learned that just as it had taken me many years to come to grips with my own bisexuality, the process has been similar for her. Despite the fact that coming out to my father simply elicited the response, “Whatever,” I shouldn’t have expected either of my parents to digest that information immediately.
If I could give just one piece of advice to bisexual individuals who are preparing or thinking about coming out to their own parents for the first time, it’s this – give them time … The coming out process with your parents may happen over and over again, like it has with my own mother …
I spoke about my book [AJ’s young adult bisexual novel Queer Greer] at the True Colors Conference at the University of Connecticut. To my surprise, my mom asked if she could come with me. While she seemed slightly uncomfortable at the conference, surrounded by lots and lots of rainbow flags, wigs, pins and other Pride acoutrement, she was there nevertheless, supporting me, her bisexual daughter. She’s come a long way and I couldn’t be more proud.

So for those of you may or may not know the organization PETA is people against animal cruelty.
Well let me tell you a story that I just found out today.
Our dog Boulder is a show dog and he was at a show a few weeks or so ago. PETA was also there and they were protesting how dog shows are inhumane.
So what did they fucking do? They let all/most of the dogs out of their kennels and put rat poison inside the kennels.
Boulder got sick after the show and as they were doing tests and everything they found the rat poison in his system. PETA killed my dog.
My dog Boulder has cancer now which spread to his kidney and his lungs. He is not going to make it. He has lost a lot of weight and needs to be fed by hand because of fucking PETA.
So I want you guys to spread this like wildfire. Tell everyone about this. Because of PETA we are losing a member of our family who is near and dear to us.
