if you wanna invent a new sexuality label to describe “same-gender attraction”, which basically just means spicy SSA-leaning bisexuality, sure. Go for it. There’s a million microidentities which describe bisexuality anyways, what’s one more. Make your own flag if you want. Have parades if you want. Go hog wild.
But what you’re not going to do, is rebrand same-sex attraction as a “genital preference”. If it’s a preference, it’s not innate. If it’s not innate, it can be unlearned. If it can be unlearned, it’s a choice. If it’s a choice, it’s no different from any other uncommon sexual behavior fetish. This is religious homophobia and conversion therapy 101. Let me ask you a very serious question: what do you think takes place during conversion therapy sessions? What do you think the therapist asks the patient? What do you think the therapist tells the patient? And then ask yourself, why is it the exact same as what is nowadays considered “progressive”, “inclusive”, and the only “non-bigoted” descriptor of sexual orientation?
If sex-based attraction is a choice, then there’s no reason to have legal protections for it. There’s no reason for us to be treated equally with respect to people in heterosexual relationships. If Brenda from accounting can get fired for mentioning her piss fetish at the workplace, why shouldn’t I get fired for mentioning my girlfriend? After all, they’re both sexually uncommon practices, they’re both “preferences”, they’re both choices that pertains to our sex lives, right?
I support housing for everyone. I support psychiatric and medical care for everyone who needs it. I support everyone living their lives free of fear of harassment, violence or abuse.
But you need to leave the definitions that are the foundation of sex-based protections alone. Same-sex marriage was legalized based on it. Anti-discrimination laws were passed based on it. They’re there for a VERY important reason.

So, jot another movie down that people refuse to take at anything but face value, even if the writing isn’t even subtle.
You’re not supposed to walk away from Devil Wears Prada thinking that the “grind” as we call it now is a good thing. Yes, Miranda had achieved a lot in her career, but she had also had a number of failed marriages and could barely make time for her daughters due to her work. Andy walks away from Runway because she doesn’t want to be like Miranda. She recognizes that the woman has achieved a lot, but ultimately, she’s alone and is willing to throw even her most loyal followers, like Nigel, under the bus.
I mean, I hate the fact that Andy went back to Nate in the end, but other than that, she made the right decision in the end by giving up the “grind” and found a job she’d be happier with.
Again, this isn’t even subtle, but I guess I’m the one who didn’t watch the movie lol.
