It seems that things aren’t so cozy in the LGBTQ+ community.
Of course, if you stop and think for just one moment, you’d realize that the “T” in LGBTQ+ is incompatible with the majority of the rest of the acronym, save, perhaps the “Q” which I don’t even really understand. I always thought that the term “queer” was a slur, and I’m not alone. Back in 2018, Twitter had suspended the account of a woman for advocating supporting “queer writers.” So far, I haven’t found a thorough definition of “queer” that differentiates itself from the other 72 letters in the LGBTIP2SQQAPKA or LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP or LGBTIQCAPGNGFNBA, or whatever they’re tacking onto it these days. But I digress…
The (first) “T” in LGBTQ+ is for “Transgender” meaning someone who is biologically one sex but feels that they were “born in the wrong body” and in order to be authentically themselves, must identify as the other sex. (Think: Bruce, now Caitlyn Jenner.) In our “woke” culture, there is a push to call biological sex the “sex assigned at birth” and differentiate this from gender identity — while denying the existence of biological sex altogether, as explained in the Teen Vogue video, “5 Misconceptions About Sex and Gender.”
The embracing of gender fluidity — that gender itself is determined by societal norms, and not by biology and exists on a “spectrum” — denies that there is any differentiation between men and women. AND YET… the “experts” that push this idea simultaneously tell us that there are men born with a “woman’s brain” and women born with a “man’s brain” which is the premise for transgenderism.
There is also a push from the “woke” folks on the left to say that preferring one biological gender when looking for a romantic/sexual partner is “transphobic.”
For example, transwomen (ie. biological men that identify as women) can, in fact, be lesbians, because they’re actually women. So, even if the transgender woman has not had any surgery to make them appear as the opposite gender, the relationship is still considered a homosexual one because her penis is a “woman’s penis.”
This must be why Democratic hopeful, Julian Castro, said that transgender females should be allowed to have abortions on the taxpayer dime. (Yeah, he misspoke and obviously meant transgender males, but it’s still funny that he is advocating for abortions for biological males.)
This gets really confusing when a transgender woman and a transgender man are in a relationship — because that’s considered a heterosexual pairing.
Are you confused? Yeah. I understand.
But this new view of sex, gender, and sexuality naturally pits the “L”, “G”, and even the “B” into conflict with the “T” because both lesbians and gays are labeled that way because they are homosexual — that is, they want to have relationships with people of their own sex. As with heterosexual individuals, genital preferences are kind of a thing. As for bisexuals, well, the prefix bi means two, as in male and female, not 783 genders. Unless the idea is to make everyone bisexual…
Okay, now that that’s all as clear as mud, here’s what happened at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village on Saturday. A conflict between a black transgender woman and a group of white gay men erupted at the birthplace of the LGBTQ+ movement.
The scene at New York City’s Stonewall Inn on Saturday, as reported by multiple witnesses on social media, showed how long-simmering tensions between transgender women of color and white gay men have boiled over during the celebration of World Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.
The unidentified woman wanted to address the crowd inside the Greenwich Village gay bar where patrons fought back against police harassment 50 years ago, birthing the LGBTQ movement. She arrived unannounced and disrupted a drag show, drawing an unfriendly response at first. The crowd eventually warmed and she was given the microphone and spoke for 12 minutes.
Eyewitnesses say that the transwoman was initially greeted with jeers and chatter when she first interrupted the drag show.
The transgender woman read the names of black trans women that have been killed recently, reading their obituaries and talking about them as individuals. Now, this is all horrible, and minority transgender women are being killed at a higher rate than their white counterparts, but some of that is due to poverty and/or homelessness, drug use, and resorting to prostitution to survive. Those last two items, in particular, make someone particularly vulnerable to some not-so-nice individuals seeking to do harm. (But you can’t say that.)
For gay men, in particular, the 50 year anniversary of the Stonewall riot represented how far they have come in achieving equality.
Some members of the transgender community have decided to use Pride month to point out that they don’t have the same acceptance as the gays and lesbians have received since the original Stonewall riots — especially black transgender women. So, the unidentified black trans woman decided to interrupt their revelry to lecture them about the plight of black trans women. (And no, I don’t believe that it wasn’t Sen. Cory Booker, but I see where you could get that.)
But many transgender women of color, representing the T in the LGBTQ community, have seized the moment to air their grievances, such as suffering from higher levels of unemployment and homelessness as their cisgender gay and lesbian brethren.
“If pride month is the only time you talk about these issues, that’s probably a sign you should look into just how privileged you are,” said Darya Shirvani, 19, a white Los Angeles college student.
But there is still lingering resentment born out of the movement’s origins. Two early pioneers of the Stonewall movement from the beginning in 1969 were transgender women of color, Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. But within four years, “drag queens,” as they were called then, were banned from the annual gay pride parade that Johnson and Rivera helped launch.
At the Trans Day of Action, a rally in New York’s Washington Square Park on Friday, people shouted: “Who started this fight?”
The crowd responded: “Trans women of color.”
And so, the success and acceptance of the “L” and the “G”, especially of the Caucasian variety, are treated with hostility because they’re “privileged” — meaning they can blend into society.
Qweenb. Amor, 30, a nursing student from New Orleans and a trans Latina, said her activism on this topic was “an act of survival.”
“Gay men, they can assimilate. The rest of us don’t have the right or the privilege to blend in. We can’t blend in,” Amor said. “This is what it is and we need full force from the community to stand behind us.”
So, here we are — gay white men are “privileged” and black transgender women are marginalized. What happens? The gay white men acquiesce and allow the black transgender woman to lecture them on how they’re not standing up for the rest of the community. How “woke” of them.
Really? So, all members of the community are supposed to support all of the other members of the community? Someone tell the Log Cabin Republicans, the LGBTrump Facebook group, and Brandon Straka from the #Walkaway movement. I’m pretty sure those folks aren’t getting much love and acceptance from the larger LGBTQ+ community these days.
All that, and yet not a single person addresses the inherent incompatibility of the new gender theory with homosexuality.
