bisexual people passing as straight when they’re in a straight relationship is not “passing privilege.” it’s erasure. it’s assimilation.
that’s like saying that femme lesbians have privilege over butch lesbians. invisibility might keep people safer on a micro-level which is fucked up, but it’s all based on people thinking they can tell who’s queer & who’s straight just by looking at them, which is infinitely problematic and painful.
don’t alienate queer people who are assumed to be straight. invisibility is a symptom of hetero-normativity, not a privilege.
Em: S, handle your underpants on the floor of the bathroom, please.
S: Oh, no! Sorry. I forgot about those. Sorry, sorry.
Em: It's ok. It's just that I've never seen dudes' underpants before and my innocence is ruined and gone forever, it's ok.
S: Bullshit. You don't have any innocence and sometimes I think I'm the only one in his house that knows it.
So help me god, Emily, you best be on your tumblr in class right now.
Come get pancakes with me and Johnna at Silver Diner after class.
We desire breakfast…at 9pm.
