Let me start because so many people refer to LGBTQ as being gay and shit and I know this person dose not know shit.
Being gay, lesbian, bi, trans or queer dose not make you part of the LGBTQ.
Milo Yiannopoulos is not part of the LGBTQ. He is gay. He dose not support the advocacy for gay rights. He talks shit about lesbians & trans.
On the other hand Steve Shives is a hetrosexual man who fights for LGBTQ rights this means he is part of the LGBTQ community.
In short it's the community that fights for rights. The term is used collectively to refer to a number of groups. However if you are not part of all those groups (hint, no you aren't) you are not an LGBTQ. The idea is to fight for all of them at once. If you are fighting for gay rights at exclusion of lesbian rights you aren't LGBTQ.
So the term is to be used in refrence to the rights of all the groups who are represented in that alphabet soup.( Read more...Collapse )
The idea is good. In practice it was great at first. Now it seems they forgot what they are fighting for.
