bi_women_study
I am a doctoral student in clinical psychology and am recruiting participants for my IRB-approved dissertation study on the experiences of bisexual women who are in exclusive romantic relationships. Please consider participating, if you or someone you know fits this description! Participation is via a secure online survey, is anonymous, and takes about 30 minutes, and participants can enter a survey to win one of three $25 gift cards. Here's the link; more information is below.

Cheers,


Liz Clark, M.A.

5:04 pm - A call for more participants!

schtuf

The researchers need more people to fill out their survey. It's about LGBQ individuals' high school experiences. Was your high school anti-gay? Was it supportive?

Go have your voice heard!

7:04 pm - On Bisexuals and “Hetero Privilege”

bialogue

I've seen bisexual friends, whose lives were heteronormative in every way, lose their jobs because they came out as bisexual at work. Just because you've got the opposite sex partner/spouse, the house, the kids and the traditional gender presentation doesn't mean that heteroprivilege can't be pulled out from underneath you at any time like a rug.


I can't help noticing that the whole subject of heteroprivilege comes up whenever bisexuality comes up or when a bisexual comes out in a LGBTQ organization.Collapse )

Sure there were plenty of speeches that included 'LGBT' but lets be honest, LGBT has become this 'all inclusive' PC bullshit term everyone has learned to rattle off. The same way most white people use the term 'African American' out of not wanting to offend or appear racist.Collapse )

melli_stl
Hi everyone. My name is Melissa, I'm 26 years old, from St. Louis. I was living in Florida for a while but am moving back to St. Louis on Tuesday.

In terms of sexuality, I guess I just don't label myself. I can't say that I am straight, bisexual, or gay. I just see how I connect with a person, regardless of gender. I am single for right now. But, if something comes my way, I sure won't push it away.

I am looking for some friends on LJ as I'm new, that I can relate to. So, just add me if you'd like :)
