On this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the tenth episode of series 9, Face the Raven, and have a discussion about bi erasure.
In our review of Face the Raven, we discuss the apparent end of Clara's story. What did we think of how her death was handled? Were we surprised to see Me again? Did we like of the concept and execution of the trap street?
For our bi erasure discussion, we talk about the passive bias that has removed bisexual/pansexual people from the queer narrative, and what might be causing it. How does Clara’s story fit the bi erasure tropes we have seen? What harm can come from erasing a whole section of queerdom, and what can be done to fix it?
