Such as the really unpleasant classism and homophobia?

What I want to know is why, in a world where your sexuality really is
balancing on your sleeve,* anyone could be so closetted about it as to make
other people feel uncomfortable and avoid you (which was the nearest Pullman
got to explaining what he was on about).

*and chittering away to that other cute daemon in the corner. And quite
possibly shifting sex if you're bi.
