Have any input on this controversial topic, my peeps?
I simply like hearing other peoples views on topics. Gives me mais perspectives and helps me to understand or relate and feel for and look through others eyes. I'd appreciate for you all to be straight up as well and say how you truly feel, not how you think you SHOULD feel, this is a 100% judgment-free zone, promise.
So on the topic of the lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/questioning/intersex/asexual community, where exactly would you say that you stand? Are you a part of the community. Are you not? If so, have you ever experienced any adversity (elaborate if you'd like)? Have you ever had the full support of someone in your life (who)? Or perhaps you believe it doesn't matter at all and you prefer to look at yourself as your own person instead of using labels? If you're not LGBTQIA, do you still support the community? Why or why not? What are your feelings towards the people who oppose the LGBTQIA crowd and why? How exactly do you feel when you see the opposers going out of their way to hinder LGBTQIA people? Would you stand up to them if you were face to face with one? What type of homophobe would you say you feel the most negatively towards? Do you believe sexuality and gender identity are two different things? Or don't you? Do you believe that sexuality is fluid? Do you think LGBTQIA people are born in such a way, or do you think it develops or that it's a choice? Any ideas/tactics/methods you can think of that could help the LGBTQIA community become mais recognized, understood, and accepted people? How big of an issue do you think the adversity that the LGBTQIA crowd has to face is in this dia and age?
Additionally, how much of an open-minded, understanding person do you believe yourself to be (be honest)? Go ahead and share as little or as many thoughts you have on the subject as you'd like and do add any other opinions for perguntas I didn't cover. Feel free to debate amongst each other, but please no senseless or disrespectful arguing.
