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.

The umbrella is so cute. :heart:

I never really knew there was so many terms that falls under the bisexual category.

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.

Holy . . . . is it okay to be simultaneously confused and NOT confused at the same time?
