Why Bisexual Women Struggle In Lesbian Relationships

As a cis-bi man, I can relate. I would also note that my lived experience tells me that male relationship stability seems at risk regardless of one’s partner’s gender. Theory seems to suggest that this would be true with women. I believe it was Erickson-Schroth & Mitchell (2009, Journal of Bisexuality) who suggested that bisexuality, because it is off the homo-hetero binary, challenges the hegemony of both heterosexuality and homosexuality and this leads to fear and rejection of bisexual folx by both identities. To be sure, I have been rejected by both genders with similar variations on the same response, “Eww. You’re bi??!!”
