'Big Mouth' Co-Creators Apologize for Inaccurate Pansexuality Scene

Right off the bat Ali throws the social hierarchy off balance by announcing that she's pansexual.

In the clip, we meet new student Ali - voiced by comedian and actor Ali Wong - who is asked by teacher Ms Benitez to introduce herself to the rest of the class. When her classmates don't understand what she means, she explains that, "Pansexual means I'm into boys, girls, and everyone in between".

Pansexuality, on the other hand, means being attracted to anyone regardless of gender. But I'm saying I like tacos and burritos, and I could be into a taco that was born a burrito, or a burrito that is transitioning into a taco, comprende? 'A few of you borings admire tacos and a few of you admire burritos, and in the event you're bisexual you admire tacos and burritos'. "And honey, anything else on the f*cking menu". Hardly anyone in the bisexual community defines bisexuality as attraction to just men and women, and to suggest that bisexuals can't be attracted to trans people erases the countless number of trans people who are also bi.

Netflix's animated comedy for adults, Big Mouth, which follows the sexually charged lives of teens going through puberty, has proven again and again to be edgy and hilarious while refusing to punch down. More importantly, you don't have to identify as pansexual to be attracted to trans men and women - because they're men and women.

It's perhaps understandable that some people still link the "bi" in bisexual to the "bi" in binary, and bi folks have had to do some work in recent years to clear up the outdated misconception Ali's definition perpetuates: that "swinging both ways" also means believing there are only two directions in which one can swing. In an announcement posted to Twitter, co-creator Andrew Goldberg thanked the queer group for calling the present's workforce out on the error. So bisexuals are attracted to people who are different and people who are the same.

'Thank you to the trans, pan, and bi communities for added opening our eyes to these crucial and advanced considerations with representation, ' they persisted.

"We are listening and we looking forward to delving into all of this ins future seasons", Goldberg concluded.

Even though the scene seemed like it was meant to be a teaching moment, people online were quick to express their disappointment and anger with "Big Mouth" for implying that bisexual people aren't attracted to nonbinary individuals - especially since the definitions of bisexuality and pansexuality are a lot more nuanced than the show implied.
