If your primary thought after hearing of a woman being physically abused by her partner is to insist on playing devil’s advocate or justify the situation by stating it must have been the result of provocation, you’re a misogynist.

La Frontera/Borderlands: The New Mestiza by Gloria Anzaldua!!!!!
I cannot tell you how much that book influenced me as a queer Chicano. The book is about 80 pages of essays on identity, indigenous religion/Tejano history, sexuality, and feminist theory, while the rest of it is poetry. There are also tons of passages written in Spanish that appear through out the book. Fantastic read for Queer Chican@s!

YES!   I can’t believe that I forgot Gloria Anzaldua! *facepalm*  La Frontera/Borderlands is an AMAZING book.  Words cannot express how much I love it and it is PERFECT for bisexual Latinas since it’s all about living in the boarders and margins between the false dichotomies of rigid categories.   

Also I’ve always interpreted the following quote as her being non-monosexual of some kind even, if she doesn’t use the b-word:

"I am a wind-swayed bridge, a crossroads inhabited by whirlwinds… You say my name is ambivalence? Think of me as Shiva, a many-armed and -legged body with one foot on brown soil, one on white, one in straight society, one in the gay world, the man’s world, the women’s, one limb in the literary world, another in the working class, the socialist, and the occult worlds. A sort of spider woman hanging by one thin strand of web. Who, me confused? Ambivalent? Not so. Only your labels split me."

Adding a few more from the comments/reblogs that I missed:

yaflashThe Summer Prince features bisexual Afro-Latinas, I believe?

Yes!  It’s dystopian future set in a futuristic Brazil with a bisexual Afro-Brazilian main romantic interest and plenty of other Latino/a characters.  

ziggygaga Love and Rockets. It’s a comic book but just trust me.

The Love and Rockets series by Gilbert Hernandez is a classic.  And here is this really great guide to how to start getting into the series, which has been running since the 80’s.

bisexual-books:

Unfortunately I only know a few.  

There is Barriers to Love: Embracing a Bisexual Identity by Marina Peralta, a memoir of the author’s life in Mexico and California loving women and men and dealing with issues like coming out to her family.  You can read our interview with Marina Peralta here.  

Then there is Spit And Passion by Cristy C. Road, a coming-of-age graphic novel about being a Cuban-American teen girl obsessed with Green Day in the mid-90’s.   

I know of a bisexual Latina poet, Gabriela Mistral, but I’m not sure if her published work under the pseudonym of Lucila Godoy Alcayaga has anything to do with bisexuality.   

The only other book that even comes close that I can think of is Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis, which has a Latino character and a bisexual character who kind of…. share a body in a way?  It doesn’t make Amara Latina by any stretch of the imagination, but since pickings are so slim you might want to give it a try.   It’s a really fantastic YA fantasy with strong social justice themes.  

Any of our followers know of any others??

xekstrinSanta Olivia!  It’s about a woman who was sort of genetically modified and now she doesn’t feel fear and she’s got super strength and she becomes a masked vigilante and she’s latin@ and so is her bisexual girlfriend.  it’s really good!!!

ONE THING YOU SHOULD NEVER CALL AN ATTRACTIVE WOMAN

There are many ways to kindly and respectfully compliment the way a woman looks. But one descriptor that should be left out of such comments? “Exotic.”

Cristen Conger of the How Stuff Works podcast, Stuff Mom Never Told You, takes on the topic of “exotic” beauty.

Watch the full video with Conger explaining how Lupita Nyong’o was “extocized” during the 2014 Oscar season here.

When gay people are assumed to be straight until told otherwise: Compulsory heterosexuality.

When bisexual people are assumed to be straight until told otherwise: Straight passing privilege 

So why is it oppression when it happens to someone gay but a privilege when it happens to someone bi?

Oh wait its not, people are just biphobic.
