Biologists call a small male fish who darts in to fertilize eggs a “sneaker,”, a medium male who resembles a female a “female mimic,”, and a large aggressive territorial male a “parental,” to place a positive spin of his egg guarding. Both the sneaker and the female mimic are “sexual parasites” of the parental male’s “investment” in nest construction and territorial defense. The sneaker and the female mimic are said to express a gene for “cuckoldry,” as though the parental male were married to a female in his territory and victimized by her unfaithfulness. In fact, a territorial male and the female who is temporarily in his territory are not pair-bonded. Scientists sneak gender stereotypes into the primary literature and corrupt its objectivity. Are these descriptions only harmless words? No. The words affect the view of nature that emerges from biology.

Bisexual: *ends up in same sex relationship*
Society: THEY WERE GAY. WHOLE TIME. YUP. JUST SCARED TO COME OUT.
bisexual: *ends up in opposite sex relationship*
Society: STRAIGHT PEOPLE JUST EXPERIMENTING. ALL OF THEM.

True fact:  If you are not actively having sex with 2 different genders at all times, your bisexuality will be questioned.  (also good luck escaping that promiscuity label.)

Q
I saw you perform at the Drama Queens burlesque show and you were AMAZING. Everyone was fantastic, but your performance was one of the highlights for me. Did you make the artwork yourself?
A

I’m so glad you liked the show! Yes, for my Dorian Gray act I make the painting every time I perform it, then destroy it on stage. It adds…


IMPACT.
