She pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Most Halsey fans will know that the 23-year-old singer identifies as bisexual. 

In fact, this year's "Strangers" was the Halsey bisexual banger that 2017 truly deserved. Still, Halsey gets an odd amount of scrutiny about her sexuality, even expressing frustration at the idea that she's "fake bi" for music sales.

Of course, Halsey's experience isn't unique. Lots of bisexual people face biphobia from critics who think bisexuality doesn't "really exist" or that bisexual people are just looking for attention. 

Halsey's latest tweet on the issue pretty much sums up what bisexual people hear every day about their dating habits. 

Unfortunately, many bisexual people's relationships are treated like a performance instead of the private and personal thing it is. Straight people are rarely asked to show their sexuality, so why are bi people?

Fans agreed with Halsey's tweet.

Say it louder for the people in the back, Hals. People make fun of Halsey for talking so much about being bisexual, but if it helps to address the bi-erasure in our culture, we're here for her mentioning it every. damn. day.
