The LBGT community has become, well a community, rather than a cause. This cause was created to fight for freedoms, much like the cause for Black Lives Matter.
Transgender is only in the LGBT acronym because they assisted LGB in gaining freedoms. I strongly believe that the T should be removed from the LGBT acronym to avoid confusion. Allow me to explain.
Transgender is a medicine for the sick—those who have a rare, excessive imbalance of hormones. By putting this T in LGBT, it causes a misconception that gender is fluid (as sexuality can be). That’s very far from the case. You are born a specific gender, and that is final. There is no discovery that you’re trans, nor the result of “gender euphoria” once you transition. People don’t celebrate taking anti-depressants, it’s a medicine to fix an issue with your brain. If you’re so proud of being trans, it’s highly likely that you are just attention seeking or hopping on this “trans trend.” Stop celebrating being what you so strongly believe you are.
The whole third gender thing is beyond stupid, and is only devaluing LGBT’s cause. There are two genders, and two sexes. Sex should only be medically changed in those rare, necessary cases as previously mentioned.
Sexuality, differing from gender dysphoria, is not something you are born with and is discovered throughout life. It develops based upon childhood experiences and what you are exposed to in early life. However, balanced hormones that you are born with also affect it, but not all cases. Lesbians may have more testosterone than straight women, and gays may have more estrogen than straight men. The discovery of sexuality is something can be proudly celebrated for discovering.
The acronym of LGBT causes excessive confusion. I believe that yes, transgender procedures need to be made aware of and accepted. But it also needs to be made aware that transgender surgery is high risk, irreversible, and can even be dangerous if preformed on the wrong individual.
On a further note, I’d like to mention that I consider “qu**r” a slur and that it should be treated as such, including racist slurs (e.g. n and c words).
Today, insane activists have made a brand new acronym to “include” everyone. Here it is: LGBTQQIP2SAA. At least, that’s the one I know of. (Good god, even a f***ing number.) The LGB cause was not created for the purposes of inclusion: it was built upon the purposes of freedom, not this BS.
LGBT is losing the focus of its cause due to misconception, Nazi-Activists, and resulting hate. A cause is supposed to fix a problem, not create new ones. Forget inclusion and labels. Now that’s a cause I can get behind.
