QUEER VOICES

The Divide Between Lesbians And Bisexual Women (VIDEO)

Sep 20, 2013 | Updated Feb 02, 2016

A video entitled "What Lesbians Think About Bisexuals" went viral earlier this week and the immediate outraged response amongst many people highlighted what appears to be a divide between some lesbian and bisexual women.

HuffPost Live host Alex Berg was joined by several of those women to chat about the controversial topic, including the creator of the aforementioned video, Arielle Scarcella.

In the clip above, Scarcella explains why she wouldn't want to date a bisexual woman -- and it has nothing to do with stereotypes:

"Knowing [bisexual women] like dick is a turn off to me because I don't like that, I don't understand it, I don't want to picture them liking it. So, to me, it has strictly to do with that and nothing to do with the stereotypes attached to it. I take that as a preference -- I don't think that's bi-phobic in the slightest because it's the same as if I were to say 'I'm not attracted to women with blonde hair and blue eyes,' which I'm not."
