I'm triggered by the phrase "Let me get this straight"?

Whenever someone says "Let me get this straight" I feel offended. As a gay man I feel left out. Why isn't it "Let me get this homosexual" or "Let me get this bisexual".

Anyone else offended by it... LEFTISTS TO ARMS!

Only a small handful of you got this was a troll post lol :'D

  • i think this is silly and trust me i am a huge HUGE supporter of LGBT issues (i literally teared up when NY legalized same sex marriages knowing my uncle could marry his partner of 15 years).

    but this is taking the word straight which actually has no denotation of sexual preferences (look it up) and presuming that it's only definition is in reference to one's sexuality.

    should we stop using rulers because they draw straight?
    should NFL coaches stop telling their players to run in a straight line?
    when giving directions should we not tell people to "continue straight"?

    sorry if it bothers you but i think you're being overly sensitive.

    Straight isn't a sexuality, it's basically a line that is simple and easy to understand
