I am the opposite gender. I am the infinite, negative gender. I am the all-seeing black hole gender. I’ll destroy everything
i’d like to know what this is trying to explain
the problem people have with the concept of “monosexual privilege” isn’t the idea that you can be privileged on one axis and marginalized on others, like, we get it. The problem is that you are positing with the concept of “monosexual privilege” that gay and lesbian people are privileged FOR BEING GAY AND LESBIAN, which is impossible, you cannot be privileged AND oppressed on the SAME AXIS, you cannot be privileged for a thing that you are oppressed for. There is no “gay and lesbian privilege”, just like there is no “LGBT privilege” or no “woman privilege” or no “disability privilege” and so on. There are varying degrees and terms of EXPERIENCES within specific marginalizations, specifically of those marginalizations, because that is how individual experience works.
Gay and lesbian people can be biphobic, but they are not uniquely biphobic and they are not solely or even primarily responsible for biphobia, because the root of biphobia is homophobia, which straight people have the market on, sorry to say. Acknowledging that is important and it’s impossible to acknowledge that when you insist on erasing the systemic differences between gay and straight people by calling them all “monosexuals” with “monosexual privilege”.

Glinda! Is it true - you were her friend?
Well… it depends what you mean by “friend”. I did know her. That is, our paths did cross. At school…
