Pet peeve: the lack of the thank button. There are SO MANY POSTS that are in need of thanks which I cannot provide without cluttering the thread with needless extra posts. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif I suppose I'll just have to get used to it.

Love one another.

Edit: Blagh it happened again! Thanks for explaining @TheWalrusWasBrian ahdn_ringo_09  

I think the main difference is that bi folks may have a gender preference whilst pan folks do not. Though of course I'm asexual so I wouldn't know anything about any of it. a-hard-days-night-john-6

I've done a lot of research about transgenderism (I'm going to be old-fashioned and medical and use it as a conditional term rather than an identity) and I do see where @Dark Overlord is coming from. Being trans is very different from being gay, bi, ace, etc. It's rooted in a mental disorder rather than sexual preference. And yes, I know that people used to think being gay was a mental illness, but the key difference here is that you can be attracted to persons of the same sex/gender as yourself without hurting anyone; while desiring your body to have characteristics of the opposite sex, and desiring medical processes that will sterilise you, is somewhat more pathological. And believe me when I say that I make this statement with the utmost love and empathy for trans folks, because gender dysphoria is a dreadful thing.

However, I believe that the main reason T is included in the acronym is that the experiences of trans people do have a good deal in common with some of the experiences of other LGB+ folks, given they often begin their journeys of self-realisation by coming out first as gay or bi; and before coming out as trans, may often display similar seemingly gender-nonconforming traits as some queer folks do. E.g. a little boy might have an unusually high interest in makeup and girly things and he may grow up to either be gay or a trans girl. (Some children also think they're trans when young and eventually grow up to be gay or lesbian.) Another example would be a pre-testosterone trans guy resembling/being mistaken for, for all the world who doesn't know his identity and mental state, a butch lesbian. So there is something of an overlap of experience there and I think that unity is to be preferred over separating everyone into separate communities -- this is the primary reason I argue for a-spectrum inclusion in the LGBTQ+ community.

Of course, we should all Love One Another regardless, but as a sexual minority person I do understand the desire to seek out others with similar experiences of that particular sort.

Finally, the whole uproar over straight people playing non-straight characters (or whatever) is of course silly, there's no question of that. Actors act, it's what they do. They choose their roles for a variety of reasons, and I can certainly see a non-straight actor really wanting to play a non-straight character because the role is close to their heart for that reason; but if someone else fits the bill better, then what can you do? Of course, it's likely that an actor who relates very personally to a role, as I imagine a queer actor would to a queer role, would probably be the best actor for the job because they can channel their own experiences into their work, but that's no logical reason to go and shout about a straight guy playing a gay character or whatever if he can play the character well.

I don't think there should be a whole lot of favouring based on sexual identity or whatever, just based on who will wear the character's shoes best. (Of course I know that, in the real world, actors are chosen for a variety of reasons, including the possibility that the casting director would really like to see a queer actor play a queer role.) If there's a dearth of queer characters for queer actors to play, then that's a separate problem altogether.

Enough ranting... time for bed!

Great post, although a boy showing signs of femininity/a girl showing signs of masculinity shouldn't be an implication of homosexuality since there are masculine gay men, effeminate straight men, masculine straight women, and effeminate lesbians.

Of course, I never meant to imply that. Read my post carefully before you make assumptions: I said *some* gay people, specifying the gay people who display gender nonconformity (as a fair percentage of them do, of course not all).

Forced small talk. If there's nothing to say, then that's okay, and there's no need for annoying meaningless chatter about the weather and other pointless and/or exceedingly obvious things, including, but not limited to: ahdn_george_05

"It's hot out today."

"How's school?"

(and my very least favorite)

"You're so tall!"

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Believe me, I have a whole repertoire of sarcastic reactions.

My current favorite is to look down and be like "WHOA! You're right! I am tall! I never even noticed that before!"

If it makes you feel better, I would probably comment on your height but I would say "you're an absolute unit" rather than "you're tall". You are free to reply with "how's the weather down there, shortie?"

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8"How's the weather" is so overused though. But I would definitely appreciate your creativity ahdn_ringo_09

Honestly, most of the really good comebacks are kind of mean, so most of the time I just say "I know" and look away. And you'd be surprised how many of the "you're so tall" people are people that I've known for years. I'll be walking down the hall with someone I've known since third grade and they'll turn to me and randomly say "You're really tall" and I just want to scream.

Love one another.

I've a friend who is about 5'10 and every time I hug her I say "why are you so tall????". It's unfair for there to be such a height-discrepancy, all I want is to be 5'5 or 5'6, can't I borrow it off her :'(.

That one's possibly worse. I always just say "Genetics." But yeah hugs are weird when there's a half-a-foot difference in height.
