This umbrella is fantastic! But I'm also a little bit disappointed with how there are not enough definitions for men in return. I mean I know they are there, we can see them. Especially when there are options for homoflexible or lesbiflexible. But why not add terms like, "fabi", "fagbi", or "bisexual-gay" for men as well? There are an equal number of fluid men as there are women. Just like an equal number of men and women who are not fluid. So I would like to see more of those. :-)

TtRavenFan1 I believe it's referred to as the Bisexual Umbrella, as it's the original term that was coined to denote someone who is NOT monosexual (romantic and/or sexual attraction to memebers of one sex or gender only). It's the term that most people will recognize, even if they're not involved in/knowledgeable of the LGBT+ community. Someone may not want to have an in-depth discussion about what it means to be pansexual, or biromantic & heterosexual, etc., etc., etc.

I would have to say that I think polysexual is the umbrella term, and bisexuality should fall under it. Poly- means more than bi-, so it's just simple linguistics, I think.

So are all the ones beneath the umbrella specific examples of bisexuality or all they all different?
I think I might be lesbiflexible, but right now I'm just gonna stick with bi.

I identify as a politically-bisexual omnisexual Queer. I feel pride in and identify with the bi pride flag (& I proudly wear its colors). I figure if some people can identify as politically-lesbian bisexuals, then I can identify as a politically-bisexual person.

I usually have issues with terms like "heteroflexible" and even "bisexual", preferring "queer", however this graphic does a great job of presenting many orientations that fall under "the bisexual umbrella" in a very positive light. I like the graphic and the language used. This must be shared.
How may I share this, and give credit to you? Will a link back to this page suffice?
I would like to add the graphic to my FetLife, Facebook and LJ profiles.

This not only cute, but has great definitions! I generally tell people I'm a bisexual Lesbian, (or lesBIan, as I call it) but I suppose I could Identify as poly, queer, fluid or Lesbiflexible. :XD:

The first thing that came to my head after I saw this picture was "Oh, the folks in the Israeli Bi/Pan community will love this one so much!" ...

I didn't know you had a dA account D:
And yes, it's utterly useful.

LOLZ. Yeah, Lilach is demanding a Hebrew version of it, but it's too much work for me right now.

Guess it wasn't too hard to figure out it was me, what with all the "radical", "bisexual", "feminist", "genderqueer", etc., from Israel :p

Awesome!

Personally, I put "queer" as an even bigger umbrella, but I like the idea of a separate bi queer term. :)
