    Last winter, CBC comedy Schitt's Creek featured the twist of the season: everyone-assumed-he's-gay David (Dan Levy) hooked up with gal pal Stevie (Emily Hampshire), and when she admitted she was surprised he wanted to hit it, David casually dropped that he was, in fact, pansexual —i.e., open to any sex or gender.
    Even better, David's pansexuality reveal wasn't treated like a Very Special Episode. Instead, his nonchalance was matched by that of the majority of his friends and family, and when his dad wondered if life would be easier for David if he...
