Big Brother Biphobia

Recently I have started to notice a weirdly accepted disapproval of bi-sexuality, sadly particularly from member's of older generations who believe its simply a fashion 'trend'. This extended to noticing comments on the TV this week when Christopher Biggins and Renee were having a conversation on Celebrity Big Brother about how "bisexuals are the worst".... nice. As a gay man himself, this bizarre non-acceptance of an entire section of the LGBT+ community coming from WITHIN the community itself surprised me. The pair went on to discuss how people should "pick a team" - what Chelsea? Arsenal? Manchester United? A persons sexuality isn't a game so stop treating it like one. Oh how ironic that those 'outraged' tweets were sent by the young. I agree with Biggins - bi- sexuality is just so 'trendy' these days and these people who talk of their 'fluid' sexuality - all the so called 'outraged' viewers are people under 30 who seem to buy into this trend.Oh how ironic that those 'outraged' tweets were sent by the young.

a comment on the Daily Express' article on this topic

It also surprised me that not more viewers picked up on the comments, with some taking to social media to express their disdain, while the majority of it's audience stayed silent. There seems to be a weird mindset that unless an issue affects you directly - you ignore it? 

Dear society:
You don't have to be gay to be outraged by homophobia, you don't have to be bisexual to be outraged by these comments, you don't have to be black to be outraged by the way black people aren't treated equally and you don't have to be a woman to be outraged by the way women are treated.
