Anonymous said: Props to rage for the post about bisexual "availability". I wish they'd cited the statistics regarding bi women and sexual assault though and how looking at us as a fetish contributes to objectification, which in turn contributes to rape culture.

rapeculturerealities:

yes, definitely that too, this myth of “availability” absolutely contributes to greater incidents of rape for bisexual women because there’s this idea that bi women “always want it” which is terrible and terrifying.

Bisexual women had significantly higher lifetime prevalence of rape and sexual violence other than rape by any perpetrator when compared to both lesbian and heterosexual women. Bisexual women had significantly higher lifetime prevalence of rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner when compared to both lesbian and heterosexual women.”

"The lifetime prevalence of rape by any perpetrator was: 

For women:

- Lesbian – 13.1%

- Bisexual – 46.1%

- Heterosexual – 17.4%”

Observe my fellow survivors! It is now acceptable to carry a crossbow to shoot any abuser that may cross your path. Ok, proceed.
