Twitter Banned Bisexual, But We've Won This Before (receipts within)

GOOGLE BANS BISEXUAL (2009 - 2014) We aimed for #badbisexualface here, me and Tara Avery, longtime bi trans advocate, cartoonist and publisher.

" Google’s Bisexual Problem ", HuffingtonPost.com (by me, Faith Cheltenham) "Google restricts ‘bisexual’ from autocomplete because of correlation to pornography" , Pasadena Star News "Google Autocomplete Still Blocking ‘Bisexual’: LGBT Advocates Fight For Fair Treatment Of Search Terms" , International Business Times (with a helpful quote from Jeff Hermes, director of the Digital Media Law Project at Harvard University).
