Just a reminder that the LGBT community isn’t some magical place where everyone is accepted.
Welcome to the LGBT “community,” where the B is made-up and the T doesn’t matter!
I understand how insulting this is but you guys realize there is literally a sexuality for only dating trans people? I’m sure that someone out there has created a label for a sexuality where people don’t date all kinds of different people based on menial things like the gender lottery and other sexualities. I think this post is an example of that issue.
But on the other hand, if someone doesn’t want to date a bi person because they can’t handle “competition”, why be angry with them? Everyone is allowed the freedom to date people. So while the reasoning some of those people have is degrading, the general “I don’t like competition” reasoning shouldn’t be hated on.
You don’t need to be willing to date a person to accept them. I wouldn’t waste a fucking second dating a human being period, that doesn’t mean I’m prejudice against everyone and anyone ever. I have my reasons but they are most certainly not related to prejudice of any kind.
If a person doesn’t want to date a certain type of people because of a reason like fear of competition, don’t burn them at the stake. That’s simply not fair. I know people who don’t go after someone or something that they want because, whoa there’s competition. There are people who don’t even bother dating “attractive” people because, whoa there’s competition.
The people in that screencap? Yeah they’re a problem. But the general “I don’t date anyone if there’s competition” thing shouldn’t be looked at as some kind of evil anti-(insert competition worthy aspect of a person here) mentality.
There is so much controversy in the lgbt+ community I don’t think any of you realize how ridiculous it is to try and make an entire community where everyone accepts each other when your community is literally the “not straight or cis or sexual or romantic people community”.
Which, not to rain on your pride parades but your community ain’t no community when y’all can’t even agree on what is and isn’t okay. You’re trying to act like your non straight/cis/sexual/romantic aspects somehow make you all love and appreciate each other. In the end we’re all just people and there is going to be a lot of shit we fight about or don’t agree on.
Of course the lgbt+ community isn’t a magical place where everyone is accepted. You’re all still regular people. Whether you like to fuck the opposite sex or both, you don’t like sex at all, doesn’t change that. It doesn’t make you better people or more accepting. You’re all just people and you all have different opinions. Anyone that thinks lgbt+ = acceptance is a naive, ignorant fool and is going to get a rude slap in the face by reality.
Why do you need a reminder for that? Why does the OP shock so many of you? What is so confusing that some non-straight people don’t like other non-straight people? Wake up. Stop pretending like your community is an accepting one.
