facts-about-bisexuality:

Fact: “Bisexual” is a reclaimed word. Historically, it has been used as a tool of oppression, first to refer to intersex people, and then to pathologize attraction to men and women as a disorder. It was the bisexual community that redefined the word to mean “attraction to two or more genders” or “attraction to multiple genders.” This definition needs to be respected. Bisexuals have been through enough shit without people trying to redefine their orientation all over again.
