coming out

It's National Coming Out Day today, so:

Hi, I'm Kate and I'm bisexual.

I also remain monogamous and happily married, so I am not announcing any change in our family life. I merely want to say that I exist. So, hi.

(Terminology note: I'm coming out as bi not because I believe that gender is binary, but because it's the commonly-understood term for being attracted to a gender other than your own and your own, and I'm doing this to be visible. Yes, I'm bummed that I missed Bisexual Visibility Day. Next year.)

Me too. All of it. I think everybody who matters to me already knows it, so I'm not making any explicit effort to come out. The same applied on Bisexual Visibility Day, really, I just tweeted that I was leaving my invisibility cloak at home.

(And why is it "National"? Don't other countries get to enjoy it?)

I fierst learned about Bisexual Visibility Day from Wikipedia, which seemed a bit odd.

Hi, K! and everyone.

Me three, although also monogamous and married for very long time at this point. Plus a dash of genderqueer.

Hey, me too, on all of the above except for the part where I'm not Kate. :-)

"it's the commonly-understood term for being attracted to a gender other than your own" - shome mishtake, shurely, or am I missing something?

Yup, same here! Bi (with your same caveat), monogamous, married. And somewhere off in the muddy waters of genderqueerness to boot.
