Evan Rachel Wood, you should enjoy your bisexuality. It’s SO HIP RIGHT NOW.
The star got into a weird twitter fight about bisexuality, shame and identity, and I know the dialogue is important but part of me is like, is this really necessary? And maybe it is, I guess. Here’s the gist of it, via Us Weekly:
“I can assure you that whatever ‘straight privilege’ I sometimes get accused of having, gets erased by #biphobia,” Wood, 28, wrote. “Remember, bisexuality doesn’t mean halfway between gay or straight. It is its own identity. I think in some cases people don’t want to be labeled because they are ashamed to be bisexual. And this needs to stop.”
The Westworld actress came out as bisexual in 2011, and after a commenter questioned if she was still bisexual following her 2014 split from ex-husband Jamie Bell, she set him straight (NO PUN INTENDED! BAHHHH)
Actually I am divorced with a son and no matter who I am with I am #stillbisexual @ZipporahMorgan,” Wood replied. “Haha no worries at all. Not mean spirited @ZipporahMorgan.”
She continued: “I have battled with myself most of my life because I wasn’t gay or straight enough. I used to think I would never be happy. #biphobia.”
“Point being, its ok. We do exist,” she wrote. “No one knows your journey but you. #BisexualAwareness.”
We get you, girl! You’re here, and you aren’t queer…you bisexual. No shame in that!
