It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold; when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade

For the past few years, there has been a new and positive trend for some LGBTQ research to break down health data into separate gay, straight and bisexual orientations. This has been significant for the bisexual community because it has uncovered hidden issues within our midst that are greatly affecting our lives. These are just a few statistics that illustrate the severe physical and mental health disparities affecting our community:
-Forty-five percent of bisexual women have considered or attempted suicide, followed by bisexual men (35 percent), lesbians (30 percent), gay men (25 percent), and much lower rates for heterosexual women and men.
-Bisexual women are twice as likely to have an eating disorder than lesbians.
-Bisexual women report the highest rates of alcohol use, heavy drinking, and alcohol-related problems when compared to heterosexual and lesbian women.
-Bisexual men and women report the highest rates of smoking of all orientations.
These statistics are important for the obvious health-related reasons, but they are even more overwhelming when you consider that none of the major LGBTQ organizations or LGBTQ health initiatives have any bi-specific programs addressing any of these issues.

"i’m not a feminist i just support equality" is 99% of the time code for "i support everyone shutting the fuck up about oppressive systems for the illusion of peace so i don’t have to feel guilty about my benefit from them and my reluctance to effect changes that begin with me"
got no problem with watching a full season of tv in one sitting but when it comes time to pick a movie im like “am i really ready to pay attention to something for two hours”
So I’ve been so nervous this past week that yesterday I realized I’ve been chewing through my headphones as I wear them so now one ear is dead and there is a bunch of copper frayed out. What’s worse is that when I realized this my reaction was like “Well, it can’t get any worse!” and I continued to nibble the rubber off of the wire while I watched TV.
The aforementioned headphones have vanished, spurring this dialogue between me and Eva:
Me: Where are my chewed up headphones?
Eva: I ate them!
Sarah: What?!?! THEY WERE MINE!
