Yesterday Was Celebrate Bisexuality Day! (Did You Know?)

Bisexual symbolGeez…
You know, a brutha tries to keep up with certain things regarding sexuality but there is only so much one can learn about everything that happens in this country, let alone the world! Certain social events, such as PRIDE-this or PRIDE-that need better promotion – that is, if the purpose of such events is to get better support, awareness and education among the masses! For example, I would have been happy to inform everyone I knew that yesterday (September 23) was Bisexual Pride Day or officially Celebrate Bisexuality Day, (among other names of this day I won’t bother to mention). You can click either of the titles to get Wikipedia information on Celebrate Bisexuality Day. I never saw a thing or promo in social media leading up to this day! It makes me wonder how many other people didn’t know. I’m not saying there were no announcements or promos; I just never saw anything! I cannot have been the only one!

bi-prideCHECK IT: If such calendar events that are supposed to draw the attention of society are going to occur with the intent being to get people to support and talk about it, then PUH-LEASE… somebody needs to do a better job in getting the word out! Otherwise, it’s like someone whispering to a few folks that he’s gonna have a huge party somewhere then have some silly ass high expectation that the entire town will show up for it, only to be disappointed. Apparently no one told the bisexuals whom I know on Facebook or those on other social sources that I frequent about Bisexual Pride Day. I would have seen some buzz! Yeah…that fuckin’ day went by like a light breeze – barely noticeable! (sigh) What a major FAIL by those who are supposed to be the [outspoken] or established activists of the LGBT or stand-alone bisexual community!
ANYWAY…

Yesterday, President Barack Obama met withThe Bisexual Flag-v members from the bisexual community to discuss issues and concerns regarding bisexual people. Click Bisexual Pride Day to see clip. You may not have heard about it on the news because it was a “closed session”. Well, I guess it’s up to me to do what I do best: TEACH and INFORM! So ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the bisexual colors of the Bisexual Flag and a link to my famed blog article about bisexuality, Does Bisexuality Exist? (Written/published October 2012) I also recommend this Huffington Post link if you are considering “coming out” as bisexual.  It’s a very entertaining read!
Speaking of which….

Most readers of this blog know that my sexuality has never been open for discussion in this blog. There were reasons for that. However,  after some intense soul-searching and knowing in my heart that 2013 would be the year of certain personal revelations and, considering how much I enjoy talking/writing about sexuality here and on Facebook, I think most readers already know or have likely suspected, “There’s something not quite straight about RobFather-X.”  And… they would be right;Some People Are Bi-Get Over It-1 I’m not quite straight! LOL! So there it is. Not really “coming out” but simply an affirmation of what many readers of this blog already knew or suspected: I am bisexual. I am also the very same kool muthafucka you’ve always known: yesterday, today and in the future! Deal with it!  Now, as some of you also know, I don’t believe in labels or making one’s sexual orientation a big deal, therefore I ask – and would greatly appreciate – that none of you make this “revelation” a big deal either. Kool?  Thanks! With that said, I feel the need to also say the following:

  • Fuck it if you seem “upset” or “surprised”, for your reaction to this non-issue should have no bearing on who I am now or was before.
  • Fuck itif you feel I’ve “lied” to you. The fact is I didn’t lie to you. And I don’t subscribe to that weak, age-old bullshit guilt-trip line people like to call a “lie by omission”. Fuck that…especially if you’ve never once asked but instead did what so many other people tend to do: assume everyone is heterosexual or straight until they tell you or you happen to witness otherwise. Also, consider the fact that I must have had several reasons which I thought were valid (to me) for not disclosing my sexuality. One of those reasons is that I have always been – and am – private and discreet about my sexuality. I simply see no reason to broadcast it. Outside of this blog, I shall continue to conduct myself in that manner.
    and finally…
  • Fuck anyone…. who is offended or bothered by my sexuality.  That’s more your problem than it will ever be mine.

Black Male Bisexual & Powerful (RFXP-edit)Read my blog article Does Bisexuality Exist? and the Huffington Post link and learn a thing or two. Oh… and from one proud bisexual to others reading, Happy belated Bisexual Pride Day! Let’s hope next September 23 the media memo about this equally important Pride event gets wider dissemination!

Keepin’ It…REAL!

  1. Thanks for sharing this info. I’m humbled and honored as ever to be considered worthy to share what I consider very private and pertinent information about yourself regarding your sexuality. Mostly, honored and humbled to be a brother and friend.
    Continue to keep it real; this is one of the many reasons I cherish you as much as I do.
    One love,
    W. Ted

  2. I’m shocked and appalled ! ! !

    But you know you have my brotherly love and support. Thank you for a very informative, engaging and well written post. Congratulations on standing right in the center of your truth – and looking BOTH WAYS!

  3. My naked brother, I need to offer to you my sincere apology. I knew about Celebrate Bisexuality (Dual Gender Attraction) Day. I simply assumed that you knew also. I’m sorry, buddy. I didn’t intend to let you down. Trust, it wasn’t on purpose.

    I agree with you that it does need better marketing throughout all media outlets. Perhaps this is due to so many remaining closeted about their gender attraction. I don’t know for certain, it’s merely a thought that comes to mind.

    Excellent editorial on labels, Rob Father-X!

    Much love and C2C naked hugs! 🙂

    • Apologies never necessary from you, Roger! It’s kool and we’re kool, my friend! Besides, as noted in the article, a lot of people didn’t know! That’s sadly reflective on the publicity factor of it – and it serves as yet another [personal perceptive] example of some of the so-called “leaders” in the LGBT movement to fall short on or neglect to throw an EQUAL weight of support towards their bisexual brothers and sisters. I find that disrespectful! It’s another reason I made the very bold affirmation of my own sexuality here (I think you missed that). Thanks for reading, brother!
      Much love and C2C hugs in return! 🙂

      • Got it, my naked brother, but out of respect for your wishes, thought no comment was needed. You’re absolutely on point about the leadership of the community being out of touch with their constituency! Politics, as usual, I guess! Take care, my friend and stay bare! 😉
