I don’t intend to offend anyone. I am saying about LGBT Community. I’m not talking about any singular person in particular, but the community and the concept of the community itself. If you are sensitive i suggest you do not continue reading.
Opinion: I honestly think it is the stupidest thing ever. It militarizes and corrupts people. And it would be better if instead we stopped segregation, and instead of allies it was friends. And here’s why:
As soon as you hear somebody say they “are” a part of the community. You already know what to expect from that person. Chances are they’re not thinking as an individual any longer, hence “are”. All of their thoughts and ideas are those of the “community”, and everything they say or do they do it (for (or)) on behalf of the “community” and its agenda, regardless of wether or not their acts are negative or positive, or give the “community” a negative image or a positive one. So long as in their minds they’re oppressed and think they’re doing the right thing the means justify the ends.
I get that orginially it was formed in a time when homophobia was common and gay people weren’t even allowed to marry. Under those circumstances it would make sense for those kinds of people to come together, and i guess it’s still okay if you want to consider yourself a part of the community, Lgbt still isn’t accepted worldwide, but don’t let it consume you. You can’t preach about tolerance and acceptance if you’re incapable of tolerating and accepting other people for being different or having a different political affiliation. Think and take responsibility for yourself. If you see stupid shit in your community, incitement etc. call it out or disassociate yourself from it. Cause it isn’t good, and all its gonna do is make you look bad as well.
