I’d like to dedicate this award to every “bad” bisexual who ever existed out there.

Every bi person who ever fit a stereotype. Every bi person who’s been shamed, doubted or ridiculed for not being “bi enough” or for being “too bisexual”. Every bisexual woman who’s ever survived sexual violence. Every bi person who’s considered suicide. Every bisexual person of color, every disabled bi person, every asexual bi person.

You are magnificent. This book is for you.

I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.  

Acceptance has no exceptions. Period.
