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.

I am part of it. I am asexual. While I have not been discriminated against persay, but stuff like this; link is very common. And it does sting depending on the tone. I try to take comments like that one as innocence/ignorance like the person doesn't mean anything por it. It's also very common for my grandma (though I amor her loads) to try to hook me up with my best guy friend which is hella annoying because I know that it makes him uncomfortable and it almost got to a point where I was ready to cut him out just to make it stop. I often hear "oh you'll want sex once you find the right man"/"once you have it you'll amor in." Like fine I won't write off the possibility but at almost 25 years having never been turned on in my life I really, really, doubt it.
Basically asexuals aren't discriminated against but people don't seem to take it seriously/really try to push you to try sex.

I do have full support from my sister, my best friend, my grandpa, and my dad. Brother is indifferent. Mother is sad that she won't have grandkids but she's otherwise accepting. My grandma still loves me all the same, but she is really in hardcore denial/will not stop talking about getting me a boyfriend. I should add that I've never felt romantic inclinations either.

Tbh I don't really care for labels, at least not the convoluted ones that I see so much these days. Simple, clear cut labels do help me relay my sexuality to others though.

I don't harbor resentment towards those who don't. Some people just can't because of religion or perhaps fear of rejection from their own families. It's the ones who go out of their way to make things difficult for lgbt members who need to stfu and piss off.
It really depends on what they're doing. Mostly I just ignore assholes.

This is mais contriversal but I hate lgbt homophobes. por this I mean gays who hate bis for dating same gender and gays who hate ace because, 'lol u guys are just str8's in disguise.' I hate them the most because they have seen the struggles but then go and do the same thing to others.

I don't know how I feel about fluidity. I feel like in terms of transgender, yes. But when people start saying that there are mais than two genders and transgender that's when I get a little iffy. But I'll refer to people as whatever they want because I'm not an asshole.

I think that they are born that way or that it naturally develops. But I don't think that it's a choice. Tbh I'd like to have a sex drive, it would make things easier. But I just don't...

I think one huge thing to help the community is to spread info. And do it peacefully. One of the reasons the lgbt isn't making as much progress is because there is so much aggression and they constantly hate on straights. As an asexual it bothers me to see how much hate there is for straights. I've kind of distanced myself from the lgbt because 1. they've excluded aces so much and 2. I don

I think it would help for people to fight ignorance por just having civil conversations because sometimes people simply aren't aware of how some things are hurtful. Years back I didn't know much about trans people and I accidentally said something akin to 'thinks that he's a girl'. I didn't mean anything por it, I just didn't realize that it could be taken as rude. I had a mob of people telling me that I was a transphobe and an awful person and after that I just avoided trans topics altogether for a very long time so that I wouldn't have to worry about something like that again. So don't make people feel like shit for trying to learn.

I think that things are getting better. You see lgbt rep on TV and in música a lot these days. Though I wish there were mais ace characters because Luffy from One Piece is the only one that I can name. Other than that, I think lots of progress is being made. I see myself as extremely open minded. Hence why even with the mais than two gender things, I'm mais on the fence. Like I don't like to write off anything completely.

I am not apart of the community in the most traditional way because I am straight but I do consider myself an ally of the lgbt community. The ones who are worthy of respect anyways. I've met assholes from within that community and out of it so that's why I clarified.

I support it because quite frankly I believe any decent person deserves rights and unless you're actual scum you should be afforded those rights. Even if I was a white,rich,straight male I believe I'd still go for that same mentality because it is the right thing to do.

I feel the people going out of their way to hinder minorities are infants incapable of comprehending that different lifestyles exist and if you live and let live they will not interfere with yours generally speaking but unfortunately, the human race fears things which are different. It's innate quite a few people's philosophy. And I find it to be extremely sad.

Yes I would stand up for someone regardless of their creed,sexuality,religion,race,gender or ethnicity.

I hate all homophobes to be honest. They are no different than sexist people and they are no different than racist people. It's just the subject matter isn't on either of those things.

I believe sexuality and gender identity are two different things. And while I do not have the strongest stance on whether sexuality is fluid or not. I comprehend the concept and why it makes sense.

I think it's a mixture of nature and nurture to be honest. Many things can influence people to travel whatever path they choose.

Honestly the only thing I can conceptualize that will help lgbt no geral, global is probably mais awareness. It's the same for any minority. mais awareness and activism will gradually change society for the better. Outside of that I have no idea. I am not active in any activist community but I do feel that their views coincide with mine strongly.

Considering cristianismo and islamismo are extremely popular as religions and there's prejudice everywhere. I'd say there's a monumental amount of adversity lgbt has to go through. It's gotten better because in our dia and age. There's many open-minded people. But unfortunately in my honest opinion I feel there's just as many people against them.

I consider myself extremely open-minded but not naive. Being naive is never a good thing. So open-minded with realism inserted in. . To sum my viewpoint in fewer words. I am a Idealistic realist.

Well, I'll be brief. I'm not part of this Community as I'm Straight but I support it myself as well. Everyone has the right to lead they life they want to and be comfortable with their identity. Whatever they do with their private lives is no concern of mine. Who am I or anyone else to judge really? I believe in Equality regardless of one's Sexual Preferences, Upbringing, Beliefs, Gender, Age, Race, Ethnicity, etc. We are all the same, each one of us harboring our own particularities. That is the kind of mindset I have been going with from a very early age. It is not that hard when I myself have been treated negatively just because of being different in certain aspects. I'd say I am as Open-minded as I can be. Always speaking in reasonal terms. Anyone who disregards and persecutes other people's rights gets no respect from me. If I see something wrong, I confront it. No matter the case. I always do my best to understand any situation before making a proper judgement. Concerning Sexuality and Gender Identity, yes, I believe there are two different things and I believe LGBTQIA People make that choice through the course of their lives. I cannot see it as something inbuilt. It's all a matter of one's development and the directions they wish to take. As for Sexuality being fluid, yes and no. I believe that depends. Can't say for sure. Unfortunately, there are those that will always fight against that movement. It is the same with anything different and any change that is trying to be made. Awareness should continue to be spread for now. It might take a while but better one step of a time than none at all. Education can play an important factor for that. Through Knowledge and Experience comes Acceptance and Wisdom !!!!

I am going to use your perguntas as guidelines here

Where exactly would you say that you stand? Are you a part of the community. Are you not?

Yep - well.. Kind of. Honestly I really am not too much for labels and have never been good at figuring out a label that works for me gender or sexuality wise and often don't stress about it as it doesn't matter much to me, but if I were to put the guess, I am somewhere between bi/pansexual and asexual with a preference towards women and I guess agender.

Really in colloquial / joking terms, I'm someone that dates whoever I like, has a very low sex drive that is partially a result of trauma, who has a slight preference for women and doesn't associate with any gender but also doesn't feel uncomfortable with any gender.

I'm very indifferent, but I am pretty "in the box" of LGBTQIA+ group with my sense of identity and relationships and sexual preferences.


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)?

I honestly don’t really know to be honest. My family hasn’t ever really been for it and I know they are uncomfortable with homosexual relationships or the idea of being trans but they never really particularly were against it. To be honest, they didn’t really pay much attention to anything about me and honestly I never really cared if they approved about what I do or not - like wise with the people in my life. There are probably a good number of cases where they could have been counted as being adverse or negative experiences as a result of my orientation, but I never really registered them.

I think the closest thing to adversity I ever got was when I used to consider myself asexual and my partner at the time didn’t believe it was a thing and made it his goal to have me explore porn and imagine sexual shit so he could make me find that one thing that lit up my sexuality or something and it was super uncomfortable and I hated it. Some of you might know a bit mais on the story that makes this a lot darker than what I’m sharing, but publically here that is as much as I’ll go into tbh.

As for full support, technically not? No one really cared about my orientation and I kind of existed in my own world. I didn’t have anyone actively helping me because I never needed it really. I do have people that accept me fully and thats cool XD My fiance accepts my oddities around the way I view myself and what not and thats cool, but with some of the oddities in my life, I feel my LGBTQIA+ orientation is por far not at all an oddity in his eyes

[b]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?[/b] Yeah this is pretty much me. I personally don’t label myself or like to do so unless I’m joking or really just trying to summarize my experiences up. I feel no real label really expresses my experiences properly and I’m pretty fine with that. But I understand a lot of people DO care so while it is my philosophy, I por no means expect others to follow it or to be able to feel the same.

[b]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?[/b] Honestly I don’t really think it is so clear cut to say “the people who oppose the LGBTQIA crowd”. There are a wide variety of types and it depends exactly what they are opposing. If they oppose the whole thing 100% then they’re kinda major assholes tbh. But I often find that a lot of people who have issues with some extreme ideas or policies or language policing often get bundled into “the people who oppose the LGBTQIA crowd” to which I would respect their ideas as we honestly can’t just say because the LGBTQIA crowd has been treated bad that they have free reign to do anything without criticism. Not everything the LGBTQIA does is necessarily in the right direction so it really depends. Are they criticizing or are they being hateful / discriminatory?

But up until a few months atrás I was mais of a "Yeah LGBT+ people should be accepted and people that don't are assholes" and pretty much stopped at that opinion, but experiences have really really really given me a sense of what a large number of people in the community have to go through and it really sucks so I've kind of decided to openly speak up about it and try to reach out some understanding about it
