Can we talk for a minute about Lauren Morelli (Orange is the New Black writer) coming out as gay and leaving her husband for Samira Wiley (Poussey)? Can we talk about bisexual erasure both in this situation and in Orange is the New Black? This show has tackled so many feminist/gender/race issues yet has completely ignored such an important identity, and I’m guessing this is due to Morelli’s failure to acknowledge bisexuality as a legitimate sexual orientation.
I completely agree and in all the sites and posts I’ve seen they say she was straight now she’s a lesbian, which I’m sick of hearing as a bisexual myself, totally disregarding the possibility she may be bisexual or pansexual or just falling on the queer spectrum. I was also so excited for OITNB to have bisexual/pansexual characters as they succeeded in those other issues but still failed to represent a fairly common sexual orientation.
She literally wrote an essay explaining that she’s a lesbian and she isn’t an OITNB character, she is a real human being.
holy shit op is a fucking disaster
And you wait, you wait for that one thing
that will infinitely enlarge your life;
the gigantic, the stupendous,
the awakening of stones,
depths turned round toward you.
