So, I’m seeing a lot of @orphanblack fans excited that 4x07 showed “Sarah is bisexual.”  If she is, that’s great. Go Sarah, kissing whoever you want. TBH, however, Sarah kissing a girl might be hot, but it seemed to me it was just being used to show how she was spiralling out of control.  That would make it a prurient scene that equated having bi makeouts (or threesomes, or whatever they ended up doing) with getting wasted, acting out and feeling bad about oneself (see the visions of Beth.)  If we had seen Sarah show any sexual or romantic interest in a woman before that, I might like the scene better, but as it was I’m not sure it was much more bisexual than Katy Perry singing she kissed a girl and liked it.  It felt very male-gaze/fantasy to me, like “whoa hot, but she usually likes dudes, right?” I’m not saying Sarah isn’t bi or on the queer spectrum, and I’m not saying my takeaway was totally right, but I wouldn’t celebrate this as some meaningful, positive coming out for the character, either.
