Candace Walsh: Sexual Fluidity and Orange Is the New Black

In the first episode of Netflix's new cult fave series, Orange is the New Black , Piper tells her fiancé Larry that she used to be a lesbian, but she isn't anymore. Her fiancé is happy to believe her, but I could also feel the collective cringe of lesbians watching the show.

Orange is the New Black might not have the hype of Arrested Development or House of Cards , but it is by far the most satisfying original series Netflix has released this year. From Weeds creator Jenji Kohan , Orange follows Piper Chapman ( Taylor Schilling ), an upper-middle class woman who finds herself incarcerated for a crime she committed 10 years prior.  But Kohan isn't simply rehashing the same pampered, fish-out-of-water angle of Weeds for another suburban satire. This time, Kohan uses the familiar white protagonist as a medium through which to tell stories of those typically marginalized in mainstream media. //www.tvguide.com/News/Orange-New-Black-Jenji-Kohan-1067657.aspx?rss=breakingnews
