Hot black bi babes? Cool! 

Also known as: I can finally get a date!

Most likely to come from: Straight and bisexual white men.

There’s a stereotype of a hot bi babe who will be young, attractive and sexually adventurous.  This is often compounded by ethnicity.  Black and minority ethnic people are often seen as hyper-sexual.  We are supposed to be wild, passionate creatures.  However this myth can lead to us receiving unwanted sexual advances, harassment and violence.  Bi’s of colour are in charge of our own bodies.  Who we share it with is up to us.
