I, like many LGBTQ teenagers, watch ABC's The Real O'Neals and was quite offended by a "joke" in their latest episode in which Kenny wonders "Oh, God. Here we go. Webbed toes? Money problems? Or worse... bisexual?!". It's no secret that the show's executive producer, Dan Savage, is openly biphobic as well as: cissexist, sexist, anti-asexual, classist, racist, sizeist, and ableist. However, none of those appear on the show. The show already pretended we didn't exist and fed into other negative stereotypes such as "The Slutty Bisexual", when Gloria, who in the episode before was revealed as bisexual, slept with someone after getting tired of waiting for a date with Kenny's dad. I was willing to overlook the other things, but this "joke" has crossed the line saying bisexual teens like me are worse than genetic abnormalities and financial problems! “Jokes” like this increase the ridiculous amount of biphobia we experience in our lives and I am calling on the American Broadcasting Company to step in and change this!
