the public instances of women openly engaging with other women in sexual ways and in the acceptance (and even encouragement) of it.
As someone who identifies as pansexual, I admit that I’ve felt my own frustration watching women flirt with other women and then talk about homosexuality being a sin, for example. I do like that people seem to be experiencing less direct backlash and condemnation though. I can’t pretend to understand everyone’s motives for their actions. I can only hope that in everything women and men choose to do sexually, they do so in ways that remain physically and emotionally safe and beneficial.
