X PSA if you have a nasty, bi-phobic song please do not use it in the name of helping the gay community goodbye
hoW IS THIS BIPHOBIC?? THE SONG IS LITERALLY ABOUT BEING A BI FEMALE. BRENDON URIE IS BI (ARGUABLY). AS A BI MAN I AM CONFUSED. EXPLAIN.
it perpetuates negative stereotypes about bisexual people (bisexual women especially) and i don’t know where you got the idea that the song is about being a “bi female” like i guess that’s one way to interpret it but still perpetuates harmful stereotypes such as bi people just being confused and wishy washy (“a girl who can’t decide”)
also it doesn’t matter what sexuality brendon urie is it doesn’t change that the song is bi-phobic :(
*cracks my knuckles loudly and bisexually* Look, I am a trans* man. Pre-op, No binder, No Testosterone. I basically am a female in every aspect. (To be changed). I’m also bi. Now, I’m studying to be an English teacher, so I’m going to break the song down to my understanding of it.
"A Girl who can’t decide". Ah, but what come’s after that?
"And here’s the reason why: Girls love girls and boys"
he also says “Love is not a choice”
Brendon is putting down the stereotype. He’s saying “Oh, why can’t they “decide”? That’s because GIRLS CAN love GIRLS AND BOYS! It’s not a choice! You biphobic turd!”
When I said it was about being a bisexual female, what I meant was, Brendon’s kind of encouraging the girl to come out and admit she’s bi, to come out of the closet. Embrace it. “I don’t want to save your reputation”. The girl’s afraid of coming out, that people won’t accept her. But Brendon thinks that she should come out anyway. I mean, the song was influenced by his relationship with a bi woman (source below)
The rest is basically him being like “I don’t care that you’re bi and have a girlfriend I love you pls date me” (Which is silly, like #1 Brendon you’re married, #2 u might as well have called it “Girls/Girls/Friendzone”) But it’s a love song, kinda. That’s what they’re about.
And I think it does matter, his sexuality. I wouldn’t write a biphobic, racist, transphobic song? (Since i’m bi, mixed and trans*)? Would I? That wouldn’t make sense!
The song encouraged me to come out to my parents.. For what it’s worth.
"*cracks my knuckles loudly and bisexually*" that whole thing was beautiful
there’s such a thing as internalized biphobia
also i personally think it’s offensive bc it makes it seem like /all/ girls are bisexual which sort of erases the real bisexual community? also the lyrics are like forcing the girl to come out, and that’s not cool at all???
There’s also such a thing as “normalizing”, which I think is probably more what he was going for.
Yeah, maybe it’s offensive to some people. No one can ever please everyone. I think the intended “offense” though was for the biphobes and not the bi. He finds the girl attractive and he knows she’s attracted to both girls and boys and he’s disappointed because he isn’t the one with her affections - but I mean I have trouble choosing dinner, nevermind people. He literally says “I am just a villain vying for attention” - you’re not supposed to love the singer/storyteller here. You’re supposed to sympathize with the girl.
He’s not saying ‘all girls’. The song is about one girl. But including other girls (never thought I’d hear a #notallgirls, but here we are), he’s basically saying ‘hey, girls can like girls and boys.
Literally the whole song revolves around ‘love is not a choice’. Please find another song in the mainstream that normalizes bisexuality, because I’d love to hear it (and love it just as much), but it’s kind of a big thing for a major band to come out with that.
i think Paulina from danny phantom is the older Trixie tang
I wouldn’t be surprised
Woah woah woah, that means
Can we please not forget about this?
Wait then what if
i cannot accept this

#the day nat and steve meet #she makes a joke about him being really old #do you think she does this to him every day #oH LOOK STEVE LET’S GO INTO THIS ANTIQUE SHOP #IM GONNA SEE HOW MUCH THEY’LL PAY ME FOR YOU #despite him being physically like #30 or whatever #she insists on putting 95 candles on his birthday cake #and taking him to museums and telling him where in the dinosaur exhibit he would probably be #she asks him if it was cool back when the mayflower came over to america #did you have fun building the continental railroad #did you swim across the pacific and make a trek to visit Jesus or did you just stay in america all the time #i bet these jokes are daily and they never stop #and somehow they always get steve to laugh
