LGBTQ+ Thread
« on: October 08, 2022, 08:54:32 am »

Making this because I'm finding myself diving into it more and more, and I'm not wanting to derail other threads with it. General discussion, news, events, whatever's relevant.

The current thing occupying my mind:

Specifically, the comments in the thread. It's like looking at a bunch of illiterate people who think they understand a book reading it out loud. The interview itself... It'd be hilarious if this person was just a random schmuck, that she's a politician makes it depressing.

Oh, this is a good idea.  It went wrong once, but I think things are calm enough here nowadays.

Hi, I'm Rolan.  I'm an NB AMAB androphile.  AKA:  I'm between genders, I lived as a man but now have estrogen, and I like masculinity.  Though I'm pansexual, currently with a femme NB.

For this particular topic... Mmn.  Jon Stewart has said some shitty things in the past, but I'm not the sort who cancels without overwhelming reason.  I thought he does fine in that clip, not perfect but fine for a liberal.  Maybe it's even the best presentation for his liberal audience.

Eyyy I'm LW I shirk from labels because I think they draw people towards enforcing rigid divisions between genders and sex rather than bring people together, but if I had to say, I'd say I'm a speed-strength-kinaesthetic-spatial main because it's like being a Dex build without being a filthy Dex build. GOD HATES DEX that is all even though dex build is the meta build. We have to show STR builds love otherwise they will lose their pride and become really small.

Cis-male Pansexual here, though more attracted to cis-men/trans-men on the whole.

Don't tend to keep too much of an eye on the politics side of things, but I'm fortunate enough to live in one of the most pro-LGBTQ places on the planet.

Oh my gosh. Literally the same.

On that front however... ugh...

I'm keeping an eye on the politics because, being trans, I'm basically the West's political football at this moment in time. I'm having to sit around and see how the media's depicting me (Because joy of joys, some people think I'm a woman-hating rapist simply for existing) and what the political situation around me is, especially with an increasingly right wing Tory government.

It's not as bad here as it is in England, but I've been doing the same thing. People act like it's not reasonable and I'm jumping at shadows but I'm not convinced.

However, I've stopped watching news recaps of the "here's a lot of bigotry as seen in clips, tweets, and news reports and us debunking it," style because engaging with concentrated transphobic narratives, especially where they're treated as ordinary talking points, has started consistently giving me migraines and/or diarrhea.

Gay kaaba is a thing now. Look it up.

Yeah, it's not all that fun being Designated Political Football.

Managed to avoid gay rights by realising I was bisexual *after* the issue was settled. Didn't manage to avoid this one however.

I'm not surprised. When fundamental christians rejected gays, the LGBTQ+ community just founded their own churches.

There are signs that mainstream christian churches of at least a couple branches are starting to accept some forms of gay/bisexual relationships, in that those churches that don't want to accept it are the ones having to break off on their own.

I suppose I'm LGBT, but it's not really a big part of my identity?

Probably not going to be posting here much (I am dreadful with treating topics like this delicately).
