Erasure or invisibility is not limited to bisexuality. The issue is present with many other sexualities and genders. The definition of the phenomenon is the tendency to ignore, remove, or falsify bisexuality in history and the media. Bisexual erasure may also include the denial that bisexuality exists. This is a problem because it perpetuates false and harmful stereotypes. Some discrimination and erasure even comes from within the LGBT community itself.
Discrimination comes from multiple places: governments and the public. Sometimes this discrimination is more subtle. For example, someone might not be fired for being gay but their career growth is stunted because they can't create the same relationships with coworkers and might be denied promotions based on biases. The article also explains how the fear of discrimination shapes people's lives. People in the LGBT community are more likely to avoid public spaces or medical care because of fear.
One major problem in the United States after gay marriage was legalized, is discrimination coming from religious groups. For example, a business could refuse to serve an LGBT person because of religious beliefs. I think that this is a hypocritical thing for the country to allow because one of the biggest values of the US is equal treatment for everyone.
The people who produced this video intended for the main message to be that "love has no labels." This video deals with more issues than just sexuality and gender. It includes people of different religions, races, sexualities, and more. I think that this puts an emphasis on the fact that they are all human and all deserve the same rights.
In this article it describes the reality for many people, the fear of death and violence just for being themselves. Every day in the United States and in other countries there are attacks against LGBT people. This is proof that even in inclusive nations that believe in equality, there are still going to be people who are hateful and believe misconceptions.
This is an older song whose lyrics talk about gay rights and equality. The first verse includes the topics of stereotypes and misconceptions. Both of these things can have a negative impact on people and can lead to internalization. The other parts of the song discuss the fact that gay rights are human rights. It also states that government oppression isn't the only issue. Society also has to work on changing its beliefs and being more open to people's differences.
