We looked inside some of the posts by laughsinunknownfear and here's what we found interesting.
the moment we stopped viewing the LGBT community as a necessity for civil and social rights and started viewing it as a fun club where everyone within it needs a Very Specific Sexual Identity and Everyone Is Valid and there are Hard Boundaries between every sexuality and gender was the moment we were all fucked.
When we insist every identity under the LGBT umbrella is incredibly unique and different from every other identity, there is a deep artificial divide created between bi women + lesbians, bi men + gay men, etc. there’s so much biphobia in the community and i think its rlly due to people focusing way too hard on making sure Every Identity Feels Secure and not enough on solidarity.
you guys add stone butch blues to your reading lists but i don’t think any of you actually read it considering the way you’re treating bi women like they aren’t real wlw or transhet men like they can’t resonate with lesbian experiences. I’m sure this is a fucking newsflash for you, but we’re all the same to cishets. no single sexuality under the LGBT umbrella- yes, this ABSOLUTELY includes hets, as long as they’re trans- oppresses another. “appropriating other sexualities” just isn’t a thing unless you’re cishet.
The divide ppl insist is there is entirely made up and actually HELPS cishets, so can we please reduce these fake ass intracommunity conflicts and focus on real ones like transgender, specifically transfem, oppression at the hands of cisgays? or is that REAL issue too uncomfortable for you guys to handle lmao
why does it matter if the definitions of bisexuality overlap with the definitions of pansexuality or polysexuality or other multisexual identities??
there are over 50 words that are synonyms for beautiful (or have similar but slightly different definitions/uses), but we don’t go around policing people for using words like stunning or gorgeous because “people might get confused and what you really mean is beautiful”
