What is Biphobia?

A sense of helplessness lies behind fear and hate. If a person is afraid of something, he is not able to do it.

And when what he fears happens to him, after a while fear will be replaced by cold hatred. A feeling of hate is a feeling of regret caused by our inability to protect ourselves from our own helplessness. Fear and hate arise in situations, people and events for which we are incapable and cannot find a solution. A person who feels strong enough and able to solve all problems does not need to be afraid and hate at the end of his defeat. Fear and hate are, in fact, the emotions of weak people.

Smart people like to talk about their defeat and their past pain. Because these people really show how they learned from life …

Yes, we are afraid as a society! We all have fears that we cannot overcome, and terrible and cruel fears. There are fears that surround us everywhere: from the cradle to the grave, from home to work, from the street to the park. These fears are created consciously or unconsciously. The fear of people in the society in which we live is, in particular, one of the most trained feelings. “Fear of a stranger,” “Fear of the beast,” “Fear of the doctor.” Although the most insignificant fear is to be afraid of a person. Loving or loving someone is the most important key to solving the fear and the many prejudices that it entails.

But in this country, people never know how to overcome their fears. However, since childhood this is taught alone and only to increase fear and fear. However, they never learn to get rid of fears and face them …

In this way, weak and repetitive people are created.

After all, people who live with ghost stories, who are not sure of themselves and who are sure of themselves, are raised in this country.

Impotence and escape from feelings of inadequacy are the basis of all fears. Fear is actually an animal emotion and is caused by the inability of animals to find a solution to certain events. So much so that the animal may not be able to solve the slightest problem, and all the problems and uncertainties that may be the problem are the source of its fear.

Because he may not be able to solve the problem, and the problem can create extinction and destruction for him.

In this sense, biphobia is the behavior of fear, hatred and open, closed or emotional violence against people known to be bisexual in society, without a logical reason. In fact, this is a psychological illness caused by internal contradictions of people and their own deficiencies.

And people with this disease have very simple and fundamentally wrong logical methods: generalization. According to these people, a unique experience with an event, a fact and a person is worth it. If your foot slipped in the same place, it will slip again when you walk in the same place. According to this logic, for example, if the theft of bisexuals has committed a crime, all bisexuals are thieves. And this type of logic is the most basic form of reasoning used by Bifob people.

There is a difference between gender identity and sexual orientation. A homosexual is a man with a gender identity, but in terms of sexual orientation he is homosexual. Therefore, being gay or lesbian is related to the bed, sexual roles and sex of your partner in bed. This masculine principle is like a gay gender identity.

Many of the gays and lesbians I’ve met in my life have been incredibly biphobic. LGBT organizations and staff ensure that training is sufficient even in Turkey. Many LGBT organizations and trainings in Turkey also ignore bisexual people. The main problem in these organizations is often gay and their problems. However, with respect to bisexuals, even those organizations are trying to suspend emoticons and immediately close the problem of bisexuality. A few months ago I received a letter that cursed and insulted because I was only bisexual in the Lambda Istanbul message group. No one in the group with hundreds of members on this topic did anything against this post. They acted as if there was a very ordinary situation. However, if someone sent a letter criticizing homosexual sexual orientation

What is Bisexuality?

Bisexuality is the possibility of having a sexual interest in people of both sexes and having an emotional or sexual relationship with them. A bisexual person may not be equally interested in both genders, and the level of that interest may change over time.

Self-perception Self-perception] is the key to bisexual identity. Many people engage in sexual activity with people of both sexes, but do not identify as bisexual. Similarly, some other people only have sex or do not have sex, but still identify themselves as bisexual. There is no “behavior test” to determine if a person is bisexual.

Bisexual identity

Some people believe that a person was born heterosexual, gay or bisexual (for example, due to prenatal hormonal effects) and that their identity is intrinsic and immutable. Others believe that sexual orientation is the result of socialization (for example, imitation or rejection of the father and father models) or of a conscious choice (for example, the choice of lesbianism as element of feminist political identity). Others believe that these factors influence each other. The biological, social and cultural factors being different for each person, they are bisexual, gay or lesbian, heterosexual or genderless. asexual] everyone’s sexuality is very personal. The “value” assigned to sexual identity is not based on its [sexual] origin. Many people see bisexuality as a phase that people are going through. In reality, any sexual orientation can be a scenario. People are different, individual sexual feelings and behaviors can change over time. The formation and consolidation of gender identity is an ongoing process. Bisexuality is a phase in which many people realize their homosexuality when we are generally socialized as heterosexual. Many others have identified themselves as bisexual after a fairly long process of identifying gay or lesbian men. A Ron Fox study of over 900 bisexual people found that 1 in 3 people had already been identified as lesbian or gay. A dotted line may still be valid for the entire period. It may be a temporary step in the process of sexual discovery, such as bisexuality, homosexuality and heterosexuality, or it may be a long-term stable identity.

Is bisexuality common?

It is not easy to say how widespread bisexuality is, as only a few studies have been done on the subject. Most studies of sexuality have focused on heterosexuality or homosexuality. Kinsey’s research in the 1940s and 1950s showed that, depending on sexual activity and interests, 15 to 25% of women and 33 to 46% of men can be bisexual. In many ways, bisexuals are hidden in their populations. In our culture, it is often assumed that someone (by default) is heterosexual or (depending on their appearance or behavioral characteristics) homosexual. Since bisexuality does not fall into these standard categories, it is often rejected or ignored. If accepted, it is considered a “heterosexual and partial homosexual” identity and not a single identity. Bisexuality threatens the vision of the world because it raises the question of the validity of strict sexual categories and promotes acceptance of the existence of different sexual domains. Since there is no stereotypical bisexual behavior or behavior, it is generally believed that bisexuals are heterosexual or homosexual. To raise awareness, bisexuals have started to form their own visible community.

Bisexual relationships

Bisexuals, like other people, have a variety of styles of relationships. Contrary to popular belief, a bisexual person does not need to be sexually involved with a man and a woman at the same time. In fact, some people identified as bisexual have never had sex with that sex or another (or both). When it comes to heterosexuals, gays and lesbians, [sexual] attraction doesn’t always have to be treated if it wants to. Like bisexuals and homosexuals, many bisexuals can choose to be sexually active with one partner. You can have long-term monogamous relationships. Other bisexuals may have free marriages that allow same-sex couples, tripartite relationships or multiple same-sex relationships (identical or simultaneous) of the same or different sex.

LGBT Characters in Tv & Cinema

There is a remarkable change in the tv and cinema, which started for the first time in 1969 with the Stonewall uprising and which is celebrated around the world every year in June to celebrate homosexuality. Especially in recent years, criticism of racism and sexism in the cinema, which has attracted the attention of Hollywood names including Jennifer Lawrence and Daniel Raddcliffe, is paying off. Films and television productions, starring white and heterosexual male characters, now place more emphasis on LGBTI “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Intersex”  identity roles.

LGBT Kids Documentary, Real Stories

From the moment we’re born, our gender identity is no secret. We’re either a boy or a girl. Pink or blue. As we grow up, most of us naturally fit into our gender roles. Girls wear dresses and play with dolls. For boys, it’s trousers and toy cars. But for some children, what’s between their legs doesn’t match what’s between their ears – they insist they were born into the wrong body. They are transgender children, diagnosed with gender identity disorder, or gender dismorphia, and their parents insist this is not a phase.

Most transgender children still live in the shadows, hiding from a world that sees them as freaks of nature. Rejected by their families, to grow up and to fall victim to high rates of depression, drug abuse and even suicide. Today, hundreds of families with transgender children – who have found each other over the Internet – are taking a dramatically different course. They’re allowing their children to live in the gender.

In this shocking yet touching film, we will follow the lives of four transgender children. We will find out how young children change their apparent gender and how many families have a transgender child.
