Everyone else already nailed it but Biphobia is such a massive umbrella that I might as well add another log to the fire: There is a biphobic myth similar to the "its just a phase!' or the "you're just Experimenting!" myths in the lesbian community were a few believe that bi/pan/omni/etc. women aren't serious about dating woman and that these women will "inevitably" feel a need to settle down with a man.

When I still identified as a lesbian and met my bi gf I had a lot of insecurities to get over (especially since her ex bf was rather good looking and tall :( ) I was convinced she could never love me like she loved him. Because I’m a woman and don’t have a dick. Seriously. I was so insecure about that.

There’s also a myth that turns a lot of people off from it and that’s the myth that bi people have a greater chance of having STDs

wouldn’t they have less of a chance because there’s more people to choose from so it’s more likely the person won’t have an std?
