Hey Twitter! This is @SaraRamirez, artist and proud Mexican Irish American #immigrant #bisexual #queer #woman. To mark #BiHealthMonth, I’m doing an #HRCTwitterTakeover to talk about the need to address #biphobia and #bi-erasure. #BHAM18 Sara Ramirez takes over the HRC Twitter in honor of Bisexual Health Awareness Month.
Those of us who love more than one sex/gender use many different labels, but we share a common experience: our presence makes people uncomfortable. Our very existence as #bisexual threatens heteronormativity and the gender binary. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover
#Bisexual, #queer, #pansexual, #fluid, non-monosexual folk are the single largest group within the #LGBTQ community, and we come in all Pantone shades, all genders, and no gender. We're trans, cis, nonbinary. We're ✨everywhere ✨. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover Bisexuals are the single largest group within the LGBTQ community.

On #Gender and #queer theory and practice
The Foucauldian notion of ‘transgression’ is central to queer theory. Within queer theory the idea of revolutionary activism that might challenge the MATERIAL POWER DIFFERENCES between the sexes,
has been replaced by the idea, derived from Judith Butler’s work, that ‘transgression’ on the level of dress and performance is REVOLUTIONARY and will bring down the ‘gender’ system.

"I'd like to take a few minutes of your time to warn you about a dangerous psychiatrist at Fenway Behavioral Health, Dr. Howard Hernandez. I apologize for not writing this sooner, but I didn't feel ready to share this until now."
"About thirteen months ago I saw Dr. Hernandez for the first time. It was an initial intake visit, so much of our time was taken up by completing my history."

Do you believe that transgender people "reinforce the gender system"? Well no worries, I will disabuse you of that silly notion in 3 steps!
1) You know the things transgender people do that seem "gender-reinforcing" to you? Well cisgender people do those things all the time too!
In fact, the overwhelming majority of gender-conforming people are cisgender, not transgender. So why are you picking on trans people then?
