You know you had a Catholic upbringing when somebody says “May the force be with you” and your instant reaction is to reply with “And also with you.”
Except you stumble halfway through because you still don’t remember to say “And with your spirit.”

Dear awful people, gather ‘round, because Mama’s got something important to say.
Knock it the hell off. Stop making queer people in hetero relationships feel uncomfortable in queer spaces. Stop contributing to bi invisibility by insisting that queer girls who date boys are “straight now.” Stop acting like the person someone dates today negates the entire rest of their sexual and romantic history. Stop pressuring bisexual people back into the closet by ignoring the reality of their identities. Stop treating sexual orientation as an either/or. Stop policing other people’s sexuality. Stop being just as bad as the conservatives who ostracize people for being gay. We’re supposed to be the good guys, remember?"
Seriously. The amount of hostility in my local queer/gay community for bisexual folks is astounding. Because I’ve been involved with men and women doesn’t mean I’m a slut, or a frivolous person, or that I’m any less than anyone else in the bar.
