what is it about LGBTQ folks that straight people just have no idea to talk about us? like "gay" and "transgender" as nouns. or the usage of "transwoman" / "transman" like it's all one word. or whatever the hell "transgendered" is about
if I were in an analytical mindset, and I am, I might say that this usage is an attempt, whether conscious or not, to make LGBTQ people other. to treat them not only as lesser, but entirely different
A tiny instance for guys, gals, and those of us who know better. Open to any topic!
