mostly i’m bothered about the concept of straight passing privilege re: bisexuals/pansexuals because i remember when the discussion of straight passing privilege was about how it pertained to the L+G in LGBT when they were still in the closet. and it was decided that because even closeted gay people will hear/see + internalize homophobia, that straight passing privilege did not apply to them. and now the L+G are trying to apply that same privilege they once deemed nonexistent to the sexual orientation group that has the highest rates of poor mental health, poverty, and violence within a relationship.
Because clearly we are never bothered or harmed by homophobia and biphobia when we’re presumed straight.

Maslany says she’s been fascinated by human psychology ever since she was a young child.
"The potential of the human being", she says, then laughs gently, as if worried suddenly that she might come across as sounding a little precious for her own good.❞
