30 Day Gender Queer Challenge: Day 8

An unpopular or unsure opinion about the GSM community?

I’m not entirely sure about the question actually. I had to look up what GSM stood for and I’m not even going to get into that debate of which acronym is better. Each generation has their own way of referring to the LGBT+ community. I use “LGBT+” because that’s what I’m used to. Older generations use GLBT because that’s what they are used to. I feel like it’s mostly young people on tumblr who are arguing back and forth on who is or who isn’t queer and which acronym is too inclusive and which one is noninclusive. That kind of on point accuracy is only useful in legal situations where each letter has to be precise.

In my opinion? Everyone is people, and unfortunately people are assholes no matter which group they belong to. We can’t just all live in our own little closed off gated communities where you have to show ID and proof of queer to get in. I don’t get where people think it’s suddenly “cool” to be queer that everybody wants to use the label including people who “don’t deserve it”. In all honestly, given the choice, everyone wants to be normal. As a society we define “normal” as cis-heterosexual and THAT definition needs to change. I don’t just want to “take pride” in being asexual, aromantic, and agender I want to be seen as normal for being it.
