I feel so angry about this. I had to comment... possibly one of the angrier ones there.
I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE how I'm not a 'proper gay' because I don't define LGBT.
I STILL EXPERIENCE HOMOPHOBIA!! When I kissed that girl in that club, I was approached by a randomer who asked if all lesbians do that. She's bi, I'm queer-ase. JUST BECAUSE IT HAS A DIFFERENT NAME DOES NOT MEAN IT IS ENTIRELY ALIEN AND THUS NOT YOUR BATTLE TOO! Because we can 'pass' as straight does not mean we are, and it does not mean that we are happy!
I am FUCKING FED UP of this bullshit, fed up fed up fed up. I have been faced with outright hostility, lied to and belittled by my pride group this year because I'm not LGBT. Sure, I like the ladies, but that's not good enough.
How dare he tell me that I don't belong in his movement, that I don't feel the same things he feels that compel him to campaign for LGBT rights, that I'm 'not allowed' to be there, to feel that, to love that way. I doubt he considered love. I do this because I care about people, because I love people, because love should not be underground, because love should be shared, because love.
Even more, I hate that this man is not alone. That people think it is ok to say to my face that I can't love. That my pride group has left me by the wayside. That NUS doesn't believe I exist, or much care.
This is not right.
