"We are prescribing for fat people what we diagnose as disordered eating in thin people."

When I started dating women I began to identify as lesbian, as it was most fitting — and best understood by community around me. Saying I was bisexual brought along too many misconceptions that I wasn’t able or willing to battle with. My sexual identity was interpreted as being less about love and more about sex.
My bisexuality doesn’t reflect how active my libido is, nor does it mean that I’m confused about my identity.
