Artist Illustrates What Being Bisexual Is Like With Cute Kitten Illustrations

Published 4 years ago

According to the Center For Disease Control, bisexual people may make up the biggest part of the LGBT community. And even though there are a lot of people out there who identify as bisexual, many still refuse to agree bisexuality exists.

LGBTQ activist Jessie Page recently collaborated with Paws Of Pride to create a series of adorable cat illustrations breaking all myths and misconceptions people have about bisexuality. “We aren’t labels,” write Paws Of Pride in their heartfelt post – and these illustrations will help you understand why.

Many people believe that you are either gay or straight – for most of them bisexuality is not even an option. But it’s so much more than that – it is proof that sexual preference doesn’t have to be “either/or”.

Paws of Pride create all sorts of adorable illustrations supporting the LGTBQ community

Even among the LGBTQ community bisexuality often causes confusion – polls were created to measure how many people identified themselves as bisexual and the creators noticed that even the language used affected peoples’ choices. Some choose not to self-identify as bisexual even though they exhibit the behavior.

The refusal to accept bisexuality even led to the creation of the term “biphobia” – an aversion toward bisexuality and toward bisexual people as a social group or as individuals.

Even though the number of Americans identifying as bisexual is rising, it is mostly due to women. Many bisexual men are dismissed as being gay and that even affects their health – according to the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, bisexual men have disproportionately high HIV rates due to being afraid to seek out medical care.

Sadly, because bisexual people are more likely to get into a relationship with a partner of the opposite sex, some refuse to acknowledge their sexual preference thus further contributing to biphobia.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
