Why is Asexual pride week the end of October you ask? It is because Asexuals are actually secretly skeletons. All of us. The bone people who dont want to bone.
"are you a boy or a girl"
Of course, another way to describe asexuality is quoting Shakespeare.
"Man delights not me, no, nor woman, neither."
'Coercive passing' can be thought of as an alternative term to 'invisibility.' Whereas invisibility suggests that one is simply “unseen” in their marginalized identity, the concept of coercive passing suggests that one isn't simply invisible but actively perceived as something other than they experience themselves to be (as influenced by social construction and power hierarchies). Thus, being 'invisible' in fact means being actively, coercively passed off as a member of the default/hegemonic group, entailing erasure as well as more subtle forms of oppression.
This is particularly relevant to the concept of bisexual invisibility — taken from this perspective, it’s easy to understand that bisexuality and bisexual people are not invisible, but are being actively and coercively erased."

This came up on my dash and it’s totally relevant for Bi Visibility Week
But the date for Bi Pride is the 23rd of September ^^
