Before reading this post a few things you should understand; and I say this for your own mental well being and to avoid any nasty protests on the post in the comment section.
1. GOD; not your or mine; all of them hate gay people. This is one thing God's of all religions unanimously agree on hating
2. I am a heterosexual male; don't hate or love gay people. I like to live and let live. I don't care if you are gay; we can have a beer anytime. If you are lesbian I would like more than a beer - sorry all men have this fantasy
3. A question I feel should not be asked in administrative forms, or should it?
4. Included in the post bonus content educative video for the ignorant
June every year is celebrated as pride month. It is the celebration of the LGBTQ+ community; it's not the same as the BLT sub from Subway. LGBTQ = Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer. The + sign after is, just like how in order to have a strong password - a special character.
in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. In the United States the last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as "Gay Pride Day," but the actual day was flexible. In major cities across the nation the "day" soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.
Here are some famous people who are gay and are proud of it; can you guess my favorite from the list?
There is a long list of famous people I have spent enough of space listing the above. Did you get my favorite from the list? Did you not question why Mr. T is on the list? NO, he is not gay but have you ever seen him chilling out with a chick ever? Don't you pity the fool?
Now for the question that is bothering me: A question I feel should not be asked in administrative forms, or should it?
Earlier it was Male/ Female literally a straight forward question in any of the legal/ administrative forms. Today they have added the options: Other and Prefer not to disclose. Obviously, this looks like a trick question carefully masked under the gender column of the form. I say trick question, because if you ticked either of them; you are out of the closet and the rhythm is going to get you tonight!
If I were gay, I would still tick Male, simply because it's the gender I was born in. However, being gay i.e. attracted to other men is my sexual inclination/ preference. Same with if I was lesbian, I would tick Female. But what if you were bisexual? Duh! you would still tick the gender you were born with. You are sexually attracted to all of humanity, great going you are true love!
The challenge arises when you are a transgender; you were born male or female and identify yourself, dress yourself, talk, walk and believe that you are a woman or man but don't own any of the tools to prove it so either you surgically acquire them OR live with a dong or without a pee pee in your pants. In such a case what would you tick? Surprise me with your answers in the comments please.
Queer, these guys are the ones who we really need to understand and may be probe in detail on what they are up to with their sexuality. Dictionary meaning: According to Schuster, “any [orientation or identity] that's not straight” is considered queer. Then there are those who are born with bothh the genitalia, in that case I think they should tick Other under gender in the form. I am a racist by nature but society is educating me as I grow.
In conclusion: June is pride month, let's party before we blow the planet!
Here is the most complicated video you will get explaining all of it and more:
