Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday!
Let’s talk about the ‘Drop The T’ petition shall we?
So, around 50 years ago, Gays, Lesbians and Bisexuals were discriminated against, they were told that their sexuality was a mental illness. We all, now, know this to be false – though we do know that some continue to suggest this.
However, something has recently happened that has seriously pissed me off. “Drop the T” is a petition online that asks Human Rights and other organizations to ‘Drop the T’ from the LGBT community as Transgenderism is about Gender Identity and the LGB is about sexual orientation.
This has basically given almost every transphobic news group leverage for saying they’re mentally ill – why? Because their own group doesn’t believe in them according to this guy who calls himself “Clayton”. Yeah, doesn’t his name just sound like a stereotypical Family Guy level of stupidity?
Now, he’s saying that they’re two different things – the battle for the right to change ones Gender Identity and the battle to get equal rights for the LGB….
Now, this is where he is wrong. The LGBTQIA – How many of those are Sexualities? Let’s just show you this way – LGBA – Why? Because TQI are all to do with Gender.
T – Transgender – this is when someone is born with one reproductive organ but believe they should have the opposite – putting it in a simple way – a girl could be trapped in a boy’s body or a boy could be trapped in a girl’s body.
Q – Queer – this means that they could be Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Pansexual, Transgender, Intersex, Questioning and so on. This is about both Sexuality and Gender identity.
I – Intersex – this is when someone, by birth or genetic mutation, will develop the other sex’ characteristics – a boy growing fully formed breasts or a girl growing hair in strange places or her clitoris becoming enlarged (this has happened to some people before, making it look more like a penis.
So, why should T be taken out?
It’s not the LGBT because we’re fighting for sexuality rights – its not to fight for the rights for those with Gender identity issues – it’s a community that stands for respect, acceptance and strength.
It’s rather insulting to me, as well as the Transgender community, that – after we vote for gay marriage for them – they begin to treat us as the straight majority did them over 50 years ago, and it still happens in the present day…
We fight for freedom only to be discriminated against the people who we’ve helped and those who have witnessed exactly what we have!
Learn from the mistakes of others, don’t just re-do them! Learn.
Not all the LGBTQIA is about Sexuality. There is more to it than that.
For those who wish to sign the petition to support ‘Keep the T’ please follow the link below – let’s beat this discrimination ❤
Have a great day,
