Coming bO(UT)rd

Coming out bisexual borderline can be a difficult process. There are many questions that need to be answered and the evaluation of the risks versus rewards of coming out bisexual borderline must also be considered.

There is, however, one universal truth: the most important, and perhaps the only truly necessary person to come out to, is you. Once you have done that, you can come out as bisexual borderline to others based on your comfort level. It doesn’t have to be immediate. Take your time and do what feels right* to you. Make sure that you’ve answered the question “Am I bisexual borderline?” and feel confident with the answer. This will help you in coming out to others.

*’right’ is not a feeling, it is a judgement; paradoxically something you want to avoid.

Considerations in Coming Out Bisexual Borderline

You must also be aware that mood matters. If you are going to come out to someone as bisexual borderline and make it seem like something bad or depressing, you can put the person in the wrong frame of mind. This can affect how receptive they will be towards your news.

Some people may not be ready for the conversation and so you may want to get to the subject of coming out bisexual borderline indirectly. Strange and awkward questions can sometimes come up when coming out bisexual borderline as well. These may be due to shock as opposed to lack of support. It is important to stay calm and keep the answers simple and short. Try to maintain the least amount of confusion possible.

Coming Out Bisexual Borderline: I’m Still the Same Sane Person

Make perfectly clear that you are still the same sane person you have always been and be clear about how you feel. You may also choose to not come out as bisexual borderline to everyone, such as a person that you depend on financially who may be homophobic or biphobic borderphobic or a sanist or someone that has a ‘Phobia of phobias’ (a.k.a. ‘phobia-squared’ or ‘phobia²’). Ultimately, it is a very important decision in your life, so it is your call in the end to whom you come out bisexual borderline, or whether to come out walk-the-line at all.
