48% of bisexual people have said they experience "biphobic" comments while accessing mainstream services, a new report has found.
And surprisingly, the two most common sources of biphobia are the LGBT community and NHS services, according to the Equality Network. Almost a third of bisexuals never feel comfortable telling their GP, while 38% have experienced sexual harassment.
The study suggests sexual harassment often centred on negative stereotypes falsely labelling bisexual people as promiscuous or unfaithful.
Tim Hopkins, director of the charity, said: "Unfortunately, as the report findings show, bisexual people are often misunderstood and discriminated against by many services."
The success of a parent has "nothing to do with being gay or straight", a children's charity has said.
Interim chief executive of Action for Children, Jacob Tas, said:
Being a good parent has nothing to do with being gay or straight. Right now there are more than 6,000 children waiting to be adopted and an urgent need to find 8,600 foster families.
We run fostering and adoption services and help children achieve their dreams of having families.
