The dating app provides a way to expand my dating pool beyond the usual crop of friends, exes and friends of exes. But why do men pop up in my feed of potential matches when my account is set to see women-identified profiles only? To be honest, it creeps me out to know that men can see my profile after all, Tinder is a two-way street. As a femme lesbian who is often mistaken for straight, I get enough unwanted attention from men.

A year or so later, when I got pregnant, we went back in to the doctor to confirm and after we had heard our baby’s heartbeat for the first time, seen that it was a real being, that our lives were about to change, the nurse comes in to do my examination my boyfriend had left at this point and tells me in a sly voice, ‘I guess we can cross the bisexual off your chart, can’t we?

Rob rushed into his first session with me, gym bag on one shoulder, briefcase on the other, 10 minutes late and out of breath. He set his bags down, gently put his Blackberry on the table in front of him, and heaved himself onto the couch. As he paused, awaiting my response, quite honestly, I was awaiting my response as well. I knew this was not Rob’s first experience in therapy and that a lot was riding on what I was about to say.
Rob had been referred by a former client of mine he’d met in an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Just out of alcohol rehabilitation treatment, he’d begun attending AA meetings, where he’d shared parts of his story. He described a long struggle with his sexual orientation, growing up in a devoutly Roman Catholic family, where he learned that his sexual attraction to men was cause for eternal damnation. Perhaps to overcome his shame, he excelled academically, medicated himself with alcohol, and married a Roman Catholic woman his parents considered the perfect mate for him.
After college, he became a lawyer, fathered three children now 13, 15, and 18 , and started his own law firm with a colleague.

By dating bisexual, pansexual, or trans women, these men are immersing themselves in the queer community.
Whether they are considered, or consider themselves, a part of that community, they are still uniquely privy to the issues that queer women face. It is what they decide to do with this connection that defines their impact on this community. Not everyone in these situations is met with the love and understanding necessary to foster a healthy and connected relationship.
Unfortunately, many bi and pan women are victims of sexual or domestic violence.
