    In 2012, the actor came out as bisexual. She has a son with ex-husband Jamie Bell.

    I myself am bisexual and have always "joked" about miley giving me gay vibes. Not a bad thing! Just an observation.

    So why are we talking about Evan today? Well she decided to be a complete and total badass when she tweeted a beautiful explanation of exactly what problems bisexual people face today:

    I can assure you that whatever "straight privilege" I sometimes get accused of having, gets erased by #biphobia.

    Remember, bisexuality doesn't mean halfway between gay or straight. It is its own identity.

    I think in some cases people don't want to be labeled because they are ashamed to be bisexual. And this needs to stop.

    I have battled with myself most of my life because I wasn't gay or straight enough. I used to think I would never be happy. #biphobia

    I had to go through the same panic and shame and depression a lot of people in the LGBT community go through--

    -- but when I came out a new found shame took over. Bi-shame. Feeling like people are judging you all over again but for different reasons.

    -- A weight was lifted but not completely. I still feel like we have to constantly prove ourselves & our worthiness within the community.

    Point being, its ok. We do exist. Don't let anyone make you feel unworthy. No one knows your journey but you. #BisexualAwareness

    SO ๐Ÿ‘ MUCH ๐Ÿ‘ TRUTH ๐Ÿ‘ IT ๐Ÿ‘ HURTS.
