LGBT Community Terminology and Flags by lovemystarfire LGBT Community Terminology and Flags by lovemystarfire
Sexual, romantic, and gender identities are very personal and often change from person to person. The information below is is simply a general guide to some popular LGBT community terms. When dealing with these terms it is important to remember that gender identity, romantic attraction, and sexuality are independent of each other. Some of these term can be used in a derogatory way and care should be used when speaking with someone about their gender identity, sexuality, or romantic attraction. It is always a best practice to ask the person which terms they prefer.
  • This is not all the terms under the LGBT umbrella and there are more being discovered every day. If you have a sexual orientation, gender identity, or romantic attraction that is not a part of this list please contact me so that I can add it to this list. I cannot promise that every group will be added or when I will get to it, but I will do my best to be as inclusive and timely as possible.
  • I plan on making a separate list for, BDSM and fetish, as well as Furry terms and flags. Any relevant resources would be greatly appreciated.

I think they're made so people don't label them with something they don't want to be labeled.

Like someone saying "Hey, do you have a boyfriend yet?"

Reply "um actually i'm a lesbian"

Yeah so I guess people are going to expect us to wear certain badges to identify us now. Sounds familiar doesn’t it, to me sexuality does not represent a person’s personality. Nor does race, religion etc. I’m going to judge you by your character not that other stuff.

Also as a friendly reminder, just because someone doesn’t agree with something, such as this. Doesn’t automatically mean they are a homophobe.

This is what happens when someone becomes so tragically obsessed with what lies between their legs that they forget A.) How fleeting and irrelevant sexual identity really is, B.) The hundreds of far more substantial characteristics that define what it means to be a unique individual, and C.) How offensive and narrowminded is the act of affixing labels to people and telling them that they must believe and act in the way that their label dictates.

What about people like me who don't want to get thrown into a box? I am so sick of this label obsessed culture, it only serves to water you down as an individual while giving you the illusion of being special. I'm gonna do and be what ever the fuck I want, and I won't allow anyone try to homogenize me. Anyone who attempts to label me or themselves mean nothing to me. All this shit with the LGBT community and pride month is not progressive, it could not be more regressive.

I am a true individual and if any special snowflake feels threatened by that, they can go fuck themselves. I don't care what reason they may have, I have had enough with this insufferable and pathetic tribalism culture.

I think this is the opposite of progress. Instead of grouping under certain groups and identities we should just be whatever we are. Be you. Not somebody from group X, Y or Z. Dont put yourself into a box.

Thank you for being a voice of reason in these times of insanity. Everyone should strive to be a true individual, instead of watering down who they truly are by joining such foolish tribes. And in the end of the day, who you truly are does not have a label, because you are pretty much boundless.

Exactly. Allies *supporr* the community, but aren't "in" the community. They can be "involved", but aren't in the community itself. If you're not LGBTQIAP+, you can't say you're in the community.

Look.

Gender is more of a social construct. 

It has been for thousands of years.

I'm not butthurt. I'm just stating the REAL facts.

Gender isn't a social construct.

It's based on your biological sex. I understand trans ppl but non-binary, gender fluid and all that jazz is just made up?? Gender can't be fluid. Why choose such unecessary labels which literally provide no purpose whatsoever (besides making you seem like a special snowflake)

Look, I don't fucking care if you think I'm a special snowflake,
people have been doing this for THOUSANDS of years.

You've told me, a gender fluid person, straight to my face,
that I'm a "special snowflake."

I recommend you tell that to a non binary person or the such.

And guess what?

I have suicidal thoughts and depression all because of these stupid NB phobes.

I think what Peqchixx mean is that by wanting to escape to the labels "girl" and "boy", lgbt+++ just create new labels. Why don't we just say "hey, vagina=girl penis=boy and other=other, but our body simply does not define our spirit !"
And this is how I feel too. I believe that "non binary" is just the way everybody is, because the psychology of a person cannot be labeled. It is taught, and as society evolve, people will be less and less needing to prove that dress and barbie = girl and tank and foot = boy.

At first, I wanted to join "lgbt and more" but I just feel being me, and creating flags is just a mean to feel being part of something.
That's what society mean by "special snowflake".

Often, who you think is nonbinaryphobe, are just people who don't understand how you can feel to attached to a gender definition.
They actually embrace more "nonbinary gender" than most of lgbt, and don't understand how you can be asking for the right to be something everybody is.
