What do you want the straights to know about LGBTQ+?

#1

When I come out to you, I don't want you to start telling me about how you totally accept me and you're glad i trusted you enough to tell you and how im still a human and blah blah blah, i would much rather you just say "that's cool" and move on. I don't need you to make a big deal about it, just accept it (make sure I know you heard me and understand, so I don't repeat myself when you already heard me) and move on.

Yes exactly! Some of my friends did that, it was actually quite annoying.

I really think that the Bisexuals want you to know that we are not greedy, or confused, or indecisive, or more likely to cheat. It is NOT just a phase. We are not half gay, half straight, we are 100% bisexual.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk. Yours truly, a fellow bisexual panda

Being pan is real and different then bi. You can be asexual and pan-romantic. Just cuz I like all genders does not mean I like all people I am actully quite picky

Exactly. Pansexual/panromantic people have types and preferences just like straights. I don't get whats so hard to understand about that.

Our personality is more than just our gender or sexuality so please don't make a big show of it and pretend that is everything that anyone ever needs to know about us.

We cant just change our sexuality or romanticity.
Its not a phase

That gay marriage doesn’t mean all marriages have to be gay. Trust me, people think that way.

That 1) lgb people like everyone they meet. Do straight people? Nope. 2) we are (or at least I am) probably already under a lot of stress due to this, please at least try to understand what is happening to us instead of writing us off as weird right away 3) I'm cool if you want to talk about it, but do you need to know every little detail about how I figured out I was a lesbian? Do I ask you for every little detail about how you figured out you were straight? Please stop asking, even if you are trying to be nice. And finally, 4) I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT "DOING THAT" WITH YOU! NOPE! The number of times I have been asked....
(sorry if this is offensive to anyone. I didn't mean it to be, and all sexualities are great. I'm just kinda blowing off some steam.)

Some bi people (like me) like girls more than guys. but if the opportunity presents itself, we might date them! liking guys and girls is cool! and liking guys more is cool! liking girls more is cool!

BI PRIDE.

Just because you've only seen me date girls doesn't mean I'm lesbian! I like dudes too!

It is not ‘preffered pronouns’, it is CORRECT pronouns
No, Margaret, I didn’t ‘used to be a girl’, because I am AFAB does not mean I was/am a girl
You cannot laugh off misgendering/deadnaming someone on purpose
It is NOT him/her, (s)he, or anything like that. Is it THEY
We are not confused, or going through a phase
It is not a damn choice!

When we come out to you, you do not need to say “just don’t crush on me”
I just think it’s rude

And it makes everything weird. Like we can't control if we crush on you, we won't tell you if you don't want us to, but don't say not to crush on you.

1. We’re trying to take over the world 2. My sexuality does not concern you 3. I can’t change that I’m gay and if I could I wouldn’t 4. If trans peoples pronouns are what’s in their pants then my pronouns are Your/Dad 5. Don’t tell me to go kill myself maybe I will that would kinda make you a murderer right? 6. Dont assume anyone’s pronouns 7. Bisexuals are not whores or sluts 8. Don’t ask how gays f**k each other, ok? I wouldn’t ask you what your favorite sex position was randomly! 9. No I don’t hate straights 10. Super straight is not a sexuality

Please don't question me about my past because don't know how confusing it is to figure out that you aren't just into guys and girls but also into neither.

Asexual does not mean we don't have feelings and we can't care about people. We can still love people, just not sexually. We can still have romantic relationships if we want and platonic ones. We still have emotions. Also, asexuality is a spectrum. A very large spectrum, everyone is different.

Yeah, it's definitely a spectrum some ace people don't want ANYTHING, no cuddles, no kisses, no sex (duh), some are fine with cuddles/kisses, but still aren't interested in sex (that's where I am on the spectrum) and some ENJOY sex, they just do not feel sexual attraction.

Me: oh, no, you're just one of my best friends!
Friend: so I'm ugly then?

JUST BECAUSE I'M BI DOES NOT MEAN I LIKE YOU!!! Like seriously, do straight people like everyone they meet? No? Didn't think so.

Coming out is hard. Way harder than you'd think. Be kind, accept, and move on.

Yeah, it's not like theres a "the worst thing" they can say when we come out, some parents literally kick people out and disown them, and we don't want to lose friends who will start to ignore us when we come out, we don't know how people will react so we put it off.
