Rachel Dolezal is back on the slander block once again after hopping on Twitter to let folks know her sexual orientation, something nobody was asking for. In her support for Pride Month, the transracial Dolezal shared that she was bisexual and Twitter has been cooking her up like unseasoned burgers on the grill.
In a tweet posted on Saturday (June 15), Dolezal posted a message about her experiences in discovering her sexuality.
“Just wanted to take a moment to recognize Pride Month. I am in absolutely no rush to explore a new relationship, but it still matters to stay visible. My first kiss was with a girl when I was 18. I am bisexual,” Dolezal wrote.
She added, “Just because I have been married (briefly) to a man or have had children by male partners does not mean I am not bi. Just because I’m bi doesn’t mean I’m confused. Just because I’m bi doesn’t mean I’m ‘almost gay.’”
After the tweet went out, Dolezal caught the fury of Twitter as expected, and we’ve captured some of the responses below.

I don’t think Rachel Dolezal is the representation the bi or LGBT community needs I mean good luck to her but she still out here looking like a woman from Buckinghamshire who moved to Brixton to be an artist and met a Rasta— marcus (@marcusjdl) June 16, 2019
It’s actually kinda sad Rachel Dolezal coming out as bi can’t be celebrated because what brought her to fame was deception. I hope if her queerness isn’t a ruse she is given the space to explore that.— Thighclops (@angelotommie) June 16, 2019
This almost makes up for Rachel Dolezal coming out as bi https://t.co/FFGCxRR1F5— thot topic (@sailorrpoon) June 16, 2019
I don’t fault Rachel Dolezal for stating she’s bi. It isn’t as though she made a press statement. She put it on her personal Instagram acct. She’s damned if she does or damned if she doesn’t. I will say her refusal to apologize for her actions is still hurting her career but hey— JaVonni Brustow 🚨 (@JaVonniBrustow) June 16, 2019
In light of Rachel Dolezal declaring her bisexuality, I just want to announce that I am a boat.— Matt Rogers (@MattRogersTho) June 16, 2019
