I’m a bisexual trans person but most people who are LGBT annoy the shit out of me. So many people in the community need to get over their superiority complexes & stop acting like they’re so much better than the “cishets”. Let me remind you of something: Straight people are normal. Cis people are also normal. The only normal people are the ones who are both of these things. Acknowledging this doesn’t mean that I have internalised x-phobia, these are facts. 10% of the population is something other than heterosexual, .03% of the population is transsexual. LGBT people are a minority, we always will be & we always should be anyway, without cisgender heterosexual people, the human species would die out. It’s not common to be attracted to people of your same sex, it’s not common to have GID, there’s nothing wrong with these things of course but they shouldn’t be normalized or given a status as godlike. There are some things that don’t need be thrown into people’s faces. Also, to be perfectly honest I don’t understand when gay/bi or trans people say “WE WANT TO BE SEEN AS NORMAL & EQUALS! WE’RE JUST LIKE YOU!” & then go on to brag about how they’re much more special than everyone else is, have pride parades (which are totally obnoxious & don’t even do anything to help us at all), & proceed to annoy the shit out of people who wouldn’t have even cared in the first place. That’s another thing. Not caring about/not supporting LGBT rights doesn’t make you a bad person, just as long as you aren’t harming or shaming anyone. I’ve known plenty of homophobic/transphobic/sexist/racist people who are actually really nice, some of them I’m even friends with. They respect me because I respect them, we just don’t agree with certain things & that’s okay. People are entitled to their own opinions about things, some of them might feel very strongly, it’s your job to educate them. If they don’t listen then welp, there isn’t much else you can do besides showing them the same kind of tolerance you’d like them to show you & hoping that they’ll understand eventually.
I’m not saying it’s okay for people to hate/treat LGBT people like shit for the way we are, or that it’s okay to treat anyone like shit when they’ve done nothing wrong. But don’t get mad at anyone when people start hating gay/bi/trans people after you spew hate speech about how disgusting cis straight people are & talking about how they deserve horrific things to happen to them… Disrespecting people for the way they are & then getting mad at them for fighting back is incredibly stupid.
