stonewall and biphobia

Dont you just love Stonewalls complete ignorance of anything bi or trans?
I just got their latest e-bullitin, and they have a bit of a sidebar encouraging donators to give money.

I quote:

“Lesbian, gay and bisexual people still face huge challenges in Britain:
*Two-thirds of lesbian and gay pupils have experienced homophobic bullying
*Half of lesbians under 20 have harmed themselves in the last year
*In the last three years, one in five gay people experienced a hate crime
Stonewall works with teachers, nurses, police, housing providers and many others to make a difference to the daily lives of Britain’s 3.6 million lesbian and gay people.”

Lets disect this:

“*Two-thirds of lesbian and gay pupils have experienced homophobic bullying
*Half of lesbians under 20 have harmed themselves in the last year
*In the last three years, one in five gay people experienced a hate crime”

Interesting facts, yet none of them about bisexuals.

“Stonewall works with teachers, nurses, police, housing providers and many others to make a difference to the daily lives of Britain’s 3.6 million lesbian and gay people”

Sorry, didnt you just say that youre for bisexual people too????

I know this dissection is a bit pedantic, but if these people cant get it right in a e-bullitin, no wonder they get it so, so wrong beyond that.
