LGBT Issues/Support Thread

Postby Rainbow Forest » Mon Sep 21, 2020 11:13 am

I have noticed a lack of LGBT related content anywhere here. It would make this site feel a lot friendlier, supportive, and less scary if there was a place to support others and get support from others, or just talk about your opinions on LGBT issues. Post LGBT related news, vent your issues, or build each other up. All are welcome, even if you aren't a part of the LGBT community. But please don't come here to flame or troll or yell slurs, it achieves nothing and will get you in trouble with the mods. If you genuinely don't like the community, please tell us in a somewhat civilized manner.

{If you want to know more about me, I am homosexual/homoromantic, and cisgender he/him. I am super pro-lgbt rights (pretty obvious lol) and support all in the community}

News of the day: https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2020/09/tra ... ds-mother/
To the mods reading this, if this does not follow the rules somehow, I'm terribly sorry. I have never made a thread here before and I made sure to read over the rules really well, but I am still unsure if this is allowed.

Have a good day!

Not a mod, but I'm thinking it should be fine so long as you flesh the OP out a bit; give something to discuss for instance.

Not LGBT myself, but I have no problem with people being so.

That's great! I have stumbled across many people here who while not explicitly saying being LGBT is bad, they imply being gay is weird and so on. As for something to discuss, maybe for those who are LGBT and have come out, how did you do it?

There are a LOT of LGBTQ related topics on here if you think otherwise buddy.

I literally slowly hinted at it until my family noticed and accepted it
it wasn't easy though.

I'm not out to many people IRL and trying to find strategies to do it.

You haven't TG'd me about that. Also, I know there are quite a few LGBT+ people here, that's why I made this. For myself and others. :)

If one more person tells me "oh, you'll find someone someday" or "oh you'll grow out of it eventually" I'm going to FUCKING strangle somebody.

I'm not going to find someone, I'm not going to grow out of it, I don't want to find someone.

Fuck.

Also, OP, I'd recommend splitting asexual and aromantic. A lot of asexual people I know are still romantically active and a few aromantic people I know are still sexually active.

This subforum is for discussion and debate. Sure, we often fall well short of that and just scream at each other. But I don't think you can have a thread where only positivity about a group or ideology is permitted.

You're ace or aro right? I know a few people who are, and it's got to be annoying to be constantly bombarded with people saying that all the time. Also, I get hating people for dating people of their own gender, but how can someone even hate someone who doesn't date anyone? It's dumb.

Also, good suggestion, I will fix it! :3

I'm sorry if my OP was vague, I didn't mean to say only positivity is allowed, I just meant to not yell slurs at people (which is against the NS rules)

I'm ace and aro.

Also, they don't hate me for being ace/aro. They just don't understand that no, it's not a phase because of puberty, no, I won't "want someone eventually," and no, I don't want to have children.

It is, definitely, one way. Is it the best? Maybe not.
