Dear Biphobe Blog Launches #Bisexual Q&A Blog

A new blog for those seeking to understand why they've been accused of biphobia has launched (just in time for Slate.com management it seems). In its introduction dearbiphobe.wordpress.com writes:
I’m starting “Dear Biphobe” as a place to write letters to people who have been accused of biphobia, and try to explain to them why bisexuals find their attitudes offensive.  This is not to attack those people, it’s to explain to them how they can become better friends and allies to the bisexual community.
If you, or someone you know, has been accused of being a biphobe send me a message (bipaganman@yahoo.com) describing the incident and I’ll try to help.  I probably will be doing many open letters to public figures that have been called biphobes so if there’s anyone you’d like to see me talk about a link to the offensive material would be helpful as well. - "Introduction", DearBiphobe.Wordpress.com
In a great second piece, DearBiphobe writes an open letter to biphobes saying:
So you said something, you didn’t think it was offensive, but suddenly you find bisexuals getting angry with you.  You try to explain and it just seems to make it worse, it seems they just want to be offended.  Telling them you aren’t biphobic just makes them more insistent that you are a biphobe.  I’m not going to argue if they should be offended, but I will try to give you suggestions on what to do now that they are offended. - "An open letter to biphobes", DearBiphobe.Wordpress.com
 The DearBiphobe blog is now accepting questions!
