There’s a bi group in Utah called the 1 to 5 club (named after the Kinsey Scale).
What would the equivalent be for the Klein Grid?
Pls RT/ask your mathsy friends.
yay! time for another of amo’s random bi audits!
Flicking through Introduction to Literature, Criticism and Theory (third edition, naturally). Still have it from a course that I ended up not doing, ages ago.
Anyway, heterosexuality, homosexual, homosexuality, lesbianism, and queer theory all get indexed (most of them many, many times). Bisexuality and related words get zero mentions in the index.
That’s despite Virginia Woolf, Jeanette Winterson, Oscar Wide, Alice Walker, Gore Vidal, William Shakespeare, Eve Kosofsky Sedgewick, Vita Sackville-West, Kate Millet, Byron and Aubrey Beardsley all featuring. (As well as probs loads of other bis / bi-ish ppl whose names I don’t recognise.)
At the Bi Visibility Day event, @BiCommunityNews editor @JenYockney spoke briefly about @google lifting their ban on the word bisexual in autocomplete and instant search.
It has been suggested at @bi_media that the ban was only lifted in the US, but she said that it was difficult to know if that was actually true. What if it just doesn’t display any suggestions cos it’s not learned to yet?
So here’s the important part: she asked everyone to google phrases starting with word bisexual so that google learns what phrases people might want to see in autocomplete/instantsearch.
Obvs, Bi Community News is in the UK, but perhaps it’s important to do in all countries?
I’ve done it (in google.co.uk), will continue to do it and you should too! Pass the message on! Signal-boost!
I can’t remember all the phrases Jen suggested, but here a list of suggestions which probably includes some of them:
Please do add some to the list if you think of any.
