Sarah Waters writes about creating her book Tipping the Velvet in the Guardian. Given that both the main characters in the book are sexual with more than one gender, what do you think the language of the article is?
 Gay: 5 uses, including in the title
 Lesbian: 9 uses, including one 'Lesbian Avengers'
 Lesbian and gay: 4 uses
 Queer: 2 uses, one of which is 'queer texts' for one of the most bisexual novels ever, Virginia Woolf's Orlando
 Straighter: 1 use
 Heterosexuals: 1 use
 Bisexual: none, nada, zip.
This is what erasure looks like.
