To be honest, i have seen bi-phoba, hetro-phobia in the real world slighty less than i have witnessed homo-phobia. Even then, the homophobia i encountered was quite a long time ago. I do think the in general people here are very accepting of bi woman, though there does seem to be a lot of bi-women here. I'm not sure if that means fa/fat women are in some way more predisposed to being bi or that a LOT of people are bi anyway and feel they can share that side of themselves here because it is, on the whole a very accepting community with a lot of people with various sexualities. To be honest i think it is the latter. Initially i thought that perhaps there may be a predisposition for Fa's to be somehow more bi-sexual than non Fa's, as the Fa part of their sexuality may over-ride their gender sexuality...though now i'm not so sure. To answer your question, i think this place in general is more accepting of different sexualities. I know a lot of bi women here have faced descrimination because they are bi.. maby they should answer too because i dont feel i have been with enough men (at least in a relationship sense) to have experienced socially how the marginalisation of bi people feels in the queer/straight community. Though..i'm not sure i fit into either particularaly either.. hmmm
