Yesterday, I was on the bi guy forum, catching up on things and what I’d been reading inspired me to write a blog there about how bisexual men are waiting for the world to change even more so that one day, we won’t have to stay in shadows but also how despite all the angst, all the biphobia, and all the other negative things all bisexuals face, each and every moment of each and every day, more men and women are taking the plunge and finding that being bisexual – and to whatever degree works for them – isn’t that bad of a thing.
What I’d written for those bi guys was both inspired and probably the best thing I’d written there since joining the site. I’d just finished writing it, was checking it for errors… and it vanished into the ether and I wasn’t able to recover it. I’m not sure what happened but I know that websites can have hiccups and shit happens but even knowing this didn’t make me feel good about losing what I’d written; in fact, I was quite miffed about it because there was no way I was gonna be able to fully recreate it.
I could have rewritten the gist of what I’d been thinking but it would have been very different; I might have even recaptured some of the exact words and phrases but I also knew that on the whole, the original message I was trying to convey would have been lost, scattered upon a binary wind of ones and zeros, a victim of the environment in which I was writing in.
