blue__monday @ 07:17 pm: Alliance Meeting for the...12th?
[OOC: Yes, I know, this is late. I have school that is killing me. It'll get better this summer. Probably. Also, new format!tryout. Since we never actually finish a meeting, instead of a break we're going to try out just talking everything out in the first half and then people can stick around to socialize afterwards.]

Monday sits down as people gather, waiting for her to start. Her seat on the table has come to be an accepted start to the meeting. "All right, guys. Tonight we're talking about bisexuality." She waves her hand. "Exciting and trendy! Scary and controversial!" She cuts out the cheery act with a sudden deadpan. "Or possibly just another sexuality. Here's the place to ask questions. Nothing is too stupid to ask, and I want those of you who've been asked these questions a million times to take that into consideration. I know it gets fucking annoying. Educate."

She looks around. "Also, I'd like it if we could just talk about stuff. This is a safe place, it's a place where people should feel welcome. If you think someone's being a militant bisexual or a closed-minded asshole, please politely tell them they've overstepped their bounds, or even better, just do what they should have done in the first place and discuss things instead of making everyone more angry."

She gestures to the group.
"Okay, guys. Take it away."

Jonny brings up, "What about all those people who think bisexuality is just, you know, people who aren't making up their mind? I'm not saying I'm one of them, but it makes a certain amount of sense to me. Like -- why would someone want to admit they were gay in this day and age? I can see why some people would say they were bi if they were scared to come out. And it might be easier to tell families -- there's still the chance your kid'll, whatever, have grandkids for you, or whatever...That's rough shit to deal with."

He feels a little stupid as soon as he's done talking. It made sense in his head, but now he feels like the bisexuals all think he doesn't believe they exist, or something. He shrugs randomly.
