Dylan asks in regards to the label that is pansexual and whether individuals pinpointing as pansexual have to skip a number of the bisexual stigma or confusion. but gets that idea dismissed since many individuals outside the queer community would simply not determine what it really is. He follows up with concerns regarding whether bisexual guys are viewed as, since dangerous as bisexual women can be to «the husbands» of right feamales in monogamous relationships and. yes. Mike, as being a queer man, has had his male friends told by their female partners not to ever go out together with them or has had his male friends’ sex questions for their wish to be buddies with him.
Cooper mentions that if you present an alternate to old-fashioned heteronormative nonmonogamy to those who earnestly do not consider and never contemplate it, that you aren’t predispositions to one thing apart from old-fashioned heteronormative might show interest and that is dangerous.
Dylan compares it to physician who angels that are weeping. almost stuns everyone else into silence, and right into a small little bit of weeping.
