I don’t think it’s bad to tell someone they’re valid, and i think a lot of people like hearing it; it’s more that i think our general focus on telling people that they’re valid makes us think that “what the community says is valid is OK” and conversely “what the community doesn’t say is valid is not” and i don’t think that’s a healthy mindset in general
Which is why i say “bi lesbians are real” not “bi lesbians are valid”. All I’m doing is saying they exist because they do. They don’t need me to tell them that they’re valid in order for them to continue existing, lol.
