"Of course there aren’t any gay characters in animated movies! THEY’RE FOR KIDS!"

Yeah! Kids’ movies are supposed to be innoc-

Because telling kids that they can love whoever they want is TOO TERRIFYING AND CONFUSING. But showing them murder, execution, death, frightening images, war, and bullying is just fine.

I MISREAD THIS POST AND THOUGHT THEY WERE ALLEXAMPLES OF GAY CHARACTERS IN CHILDRENS MOVIES AND I WAS SO CONFUSED OMG OKAY SORRY

I mean, it has Shang

liarsloversandtheives pondered: Hey, look, we're messing up someone's text post with this, wanna message me what you have to say instead? Maybe we can understand each other better this way

That’s fine with me.  I’m just uncomfortable with the erasure that the non-mainstream minorities face, especially when it occurs within a community that’s already persecuted and marginalized.

how long must we wait for a lesbian disney princess

or what about a prince who throughout the entire movie you think he’s going to be the love interest but in the end it turns out he’s gay

or how about a lesbian princess

That middle one is just a reverse Shang

I mean, other than the bit where you apparently think that an argument from authority will prove your point?

My problem is the fact that it’s apparently acceptable to erase the identity of a swath of people in order to make sure the majority feels ‘included’?

My problem is the part where some people don’t get to go home and stop being gay or bi or trans or whatever.  The GSM community isn’t a t-shirt that you get to put on and feel good about for six hours a day.

Look, I’m gay dude, and I’m pretty activist-y about it. I get it. But honestly. Its an acronym. It doesn’t make a sexuality or validate it, it makes it a category that people can look at and understand without having to try too hard. Personally, I’m not a big acronyms person cuz unless I know what it means before hand I’m over here like whats an lmfao? Its not something to get worked up about alright? Look if theres some underlying thing you’re going through or something, feel free to message me okay? I’m sorry if I’ve seemed catty and rude, I’ve got a lot of background noise of not good in my life right now and I forgot to try and understand. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to not be inclusive and I’m sorry if I offended you and that i came off as rude there.

Whatever.  It’s not my job to educate.  The bottom line is that there’s more to the GSM community than gay/bi/trans/questioning and that saying that “it’s not a big deal” that they don’t get support is a pretty shitty thing to do.

That said:

The LGBTQIA acronym (or QUILTBAG or whatever the current vogue is) is problematic in that it necessarily leaves things out (unless you pick some umbrella term like GSM (Gender/Sexuality Minority)) and your reasoning is especially so in that you decide to leave out a legitimate minority in favor of inclusion of the majority and claim that you’re trying to be “all inclusive and not exclusionary.”

Hey look dude, I’m not trying to count anyone out here, I’m not dismissing anyone’s sexuality. I’m telling straight supporters they can be included too. I’ve heard the A used for allies by people who are literally paid to know this. Maybe there are multiple usages for this letter idk. But its a freakin acronym and I was only trying to tell her to ignore people who say that she may be too straight to join the community in a way that fit to her post. So legit, whats your problem?

I believe that the LGBT community is a beautiful thing. It’s diverse and full of cool people, it’s accepting and awesome. That’s why I think it shouldn’t be turned into an exclusionary club by the elitists. Saying we can’t be a part of the LGBT community is like little boys who make treehouses…

They call it LGBTA for a reason. The A stands for allies. Welcome :)

please be joking

I’m not joking, allies can come too, its okay

You’re missing thegeekyblonde’s point, which is that the A generally stands for “Asexual” and not “Ally.”  The LGBTQA acronym is problematic enough in what it leaves out already.  Don’t make it moreso.

I’m not. First off it doesn’t stand for that. At least not in any gsa or pride center I’ve been to or been president of. Secondly I was simply trying to be all inclusive and not exclusionary like she was complaining about. Can we all calm down please?

Actually, I should backtrack because I don’t know what thegeekyblonde meant because on second inspection, there are multiple things problematic with the whole exchange.

Welcome to school

I mean…there could easily be a difference between a capital G and a lowercase g. For example, I’m learning about derivatives right now and we’re applying the product/quotient rules (headaches) to business problems and there are two ‘p’s. A lowercase p and an uppercase P, the former standing for ‘price’ or ‘demand function’ and the latter standing for ‘product’ or ‘profit function’. So, really, your answer is not correct and the question was probably designed to trick you into choosing the wrong one if you didn’t know the exact definition of each letter. 

G is the universal gravitational constant which is 6.67384 × 10^-11 m^3 kg^-1 s^-2 while g is the gravitational force at sea level on Earth, which is about 9.807 m s^-2.  There’s pretty clearly a difference.
