Mythbusters for Bi’s of Colour #4

Black bisexuals spread sexually transmitted diseases. 

Also known as: AIDS is all your fault.

Most likely to come from: White and black straight people. Sadly, also from black and white lesbians

Unsafe sexual practices and intravenous drug use are the most common ways to spread sexually transmitted diseases.  Bi’s of colour are no more likely to contract or pass on a sexually transmitted disease than any other sexually active person.  Safer sex and regular health checks benefit us all.  Stigma and shame for our sexual orientation doesn’t help anyone; in fact, it can make someone less likely to look after themselves.
