And some great thoughts from Patrick!
I want to talk more about a logical fallacy that comes up a lot, one that I briefly mentioned in my article busting the myth(s) of the barsexual. It’s called the “No True Scotsman” fallacy, and the reason it’s called that is because it’s most commonly illustrated with stories similar to this one:

Take time this year to spend a focused and fulfilling day at the Creating Change Bi+ Institute where our theme will be self-care and intersectional identities. Bisexual, Pansexual, Polysexual, Fluid and Queer (Bi+) organizers are invited to participate. We are all united by being bi+, but we also have many other identities that shape our lived experiences as bi+ people. Identities such as people of color, elders, youth, trans, gender nonconforming, disabled, neurodiverse and many more make up our diverse community. Learn how to nurture and care for yourself and your communities while bringing your whole self into these spaces. Discussions will include Intersectionality, Biphobia and Monosexism, and learning how to develop programs. We will also have open space for attendees to suggest topics and a space for exploring the Bi+ Agenda for the future.
