TV/FILM: Bisexual Erasure – The Unicorn Scale

Unicorns are amazing: it’s pretty safe to say that is a fact. Unicorns, however, also happen to be legendary creatures whose existence have been questioned by many. Just like bisexuals, we dare to say. Talia Squires, editor-in-chief at Bi.org and creator of the Unicorn Scale, agrees. The Unicorn Scale ‘explores the quality of bi representation in film and television’ and it does so in an entertaining way.

Squires reviews movies and TV shows focusing on bisexual storylines and assigning from one to four unicorns.

‘Siskel and Ebert have thumbs, Leonard Maltin has stars, I wanted unicorns. The bi community has chosen unicorns as its symbol for many reasons, not least of which is unicorns are awesome,’ she told Gay Star News. ‘Many still tell bisexual people they don’t exist, so the unicorn allows us to play with that stereotype. And have a little fun with it in the process.’
