I recall in the mid-2000s when I was a teenager, struggling with my sexuality, and getting involved with the LGBT movement, before the mainstream aspect of it allowed itself to be so hijacked by sociopolitical nutters that want to force the rest of society to conform to a group that comprises roughly three to four per cent of the population. Years later, when I went to trade school, I wound up slowly beginning to shed some of the beliefs of even the most average, perfectly reasonable LGBT individuals precisely because I recognised that much of the movement itself had begun to shift so far into the realm of truest insanity. That was in 2012/2013. It was only once I started watching Blaire White's videos that I started coming to a middle-ground, that the LGBT movement had been so polluted as to be irredeemable as a mainstream fixture, that it was losing members for the sake of having an increasingly powerful voice.
As of about 2016/2017, I can safely say that although I don't necessarily agree with all of the primary points on the more reasonable LGBT agenda, or of the Blaire Whites and Arielle Scarcellas of the world, I'm definitely thankful to know that there are a few reasonable people still who had to stop and go, "What? No, we passed that turnpike three years ago."
I'm even saying this as a straight man, someone who'll never be able to get aboard with certain things, such as marriage, etc, I'm not going to sit here and refuse to have a discussion, especially as long as we can agree that those who would scream at others for mere disagreement; paedophiles; and people who believe in 76 genders aren't reasonable and thus don't represent the majority of LGBT individuals.
Thank you for this. For the record, I'm a disillusioned liberal who's been called a bigot by "progressive" queers for refusing to believe that "genital preferences" are transphobic, and I also feel that the whole "187 genders" argument is illogical. I don't discount identities like "non-binary" or "genderqueer", though I admit I don't quite understand them, but "autism gender"? You'll never convince me that a neurological disorder is somebody's gender. "Dragon gender" ... ok, that one honestly sounds badass, but unless you hatched out of an egg in a fiery blaze, you're not a fucking dragon. Just my opinion, anyway.
Hiya, I'm the leftie that kicks about here. We probably disagree on almost every point but: Screaming at people is rude, paedophiles can fuck off and there are not 76 genders (pst also those 76 gender lists aren't different genders... they're ways you can be a gender... but thats a complete tangent)
