Bisexuality is a sexual orientation with at least 3 similar but different definitions.

  1. . attraction to the two binary genders
  2. . attraction to two genders. Sometimes in two different ways.
  3. . attraction to the two binary genders and everything in-between

The only definition that can be Enbyphobic is the first one and even than it is not if not based on Enbyphobic beliefs. An example of a non-Enbyphobic bisexual is somebody attracted to the two binary genders in different ways.

Bisexuality is one of the oldest and most-well known terms under the bi*sexual (also referred to as non-monosexual and polysexual) umbrella. Some bisexual activists include Shiri Eisner, Robyn Ochs, and Brenda Howard (the "mother of pride").

Bisexual vs. PansexualEdit

Sometimes it is said Bisexual and Pansexual are the same thing and under definition 3 they can be. But Pansexual is generally understood to be a monosexuality encompassing all genders. While bisexual can be a monosexual or polysexual orientation depending on how much definition 2 is in play.

Interaction of Bisexual and Pansexual communitiesEdit

There has been some controversy between the Bisexual and Pansexual communities with Pansexual community calling the Bisexual community Enbyphobic and/or transphobic. Under the three definitions presented above, you can see why this is not necessarily true.

What is true is by the vary nature of the word is Pansexual requires there to be more than 2 genders.
