Kristen Stewart Comes Out Again and — SURPRISE! — People Are Still Upset
When Kristen Stewart hosted Saturday Night Live just over a month ago, she shocked a lot of people. No, it wasn’t because she accidentally dropped the F-bomb on live television, but rather this portion of her monologue: “The President is not a huge fan of me but that is so okay. But Donald [Trump], if you didn’t like me, then you’re probably really not going to like me now because I’m hosting SNL and I’m, like, so gay, dude.”
While some people were happy that the 26-year-old finally felt comfortable discussing her sexuality, others were confused — seeing as she previously dated men like Robert Pattinson and Rupert Sanders, wasn’t she bisexual, not gay? Now, however, it looks like those confused people were right all along.
“You’re not confused if you’re bisexual; it’s not confusing at all. For me, it’s quite the opposite,” she said in an interview with The Guardian.
The Twilight actress also spoke about sexual fluidity and the importance of acknowledging the ‘grey area‘ of sexuality.
“The whole issue of sexuality is so grey. I’m just trying to acknowledge that fluidity, that greyness, which has always existed. But maybe only now are we allowed to start talking about it. Things are changing. I mean, I don’t think I would have approached my life differently if that hadn’t been the case…But all the prejudice; it’s going for sure. I mean, yeah, it’s definitely still there. People still have some horrendous f*cking experiences. But it’s cool that you don’t have to nail everything down anymore…that whole certainty about whether you’re straight or gay or whatever.”
This seems like a major step — many people dismiss bisexuality as confusion and the fact that KStew is trying to let the world know that it’s a valid sexuality that should never be dismissed is a HUGE deal. But, you know you it goes…no one can ever be happy and people are actually saying she did the opposite by previously calling herself gay when she’s actually bi.

Why did the Guardian refer to Kristen Stewart as gay in an article literally about her being bi? Complete bi-erasure

Apparently it's offensive and objectionable if a bisexual person says "I'm so gay"??? pic.twitter.com/loHrLlQ13L

As we said before, it’s up to KRISTEN how (and if!!) she wants to define her sexuality, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with her calling herself gay even if she’s attracted to more than one gender. Remember — you are free to love whoever you want.
Like Kristen Stewart, these YouTube beauty gurus also came out as bisexual:
Unlike many other people on this list, Eva came out as bisexual on Twitter, not YouTube. Here's what she wrote:
"Just because you haven't dated someone of the same sex does not mean you can't be taken seriously as a bisexual. I am ready for myself to fall in love with someone, no matter who they end up being, and have been since I was 12. Boy or girl. Why would you limit your love to half of what it could be, based off of being scared to 'not be normal?' No, love is for everybody to share. Let yourself love whoever you fall in love with. Don't let your brain decide what boundaries your emotions have. Accepting yourself as being bisexual is not pledging to be 'different;' It's pledging to be honest."
