Sex and Stigma: stop slurring, negging and name calling

all sexualities’ are both fetishized and face disinterest

everyone needs to take a breath step back,

learn to accept a no, learn to say no

and mostly, learn to stop naming calling those not interested

not every sexuality is attracted to all others

and there are sexualities that are specific to biological gender

https://www.redbrick.me/why-is-bisexuality-still-so-stigmatized/Why is Bisexuality Still So Stigmatized? | Redbrick CommentComment Editor Phoebe Snedker discusses biphobia and misconceptions about the sexual orientation, arguing that the countless stereotypes have a significant impact on bisexual people and their relationships with others.www.redbrick.me

it is not biphobic nor transphobic to say no to a date.

it is homophobic and transphobic to claim it was reasonable to assault, rape and murder as heterosexual men do in court

Every person is allowed to say no, I am not interested, not attracted.

that is the opposite of a fear, which is what a phobia is.

To not want the difference between hetero, gay or lesbian which is a sexuality mismatch with a bisexual person

and a gender mismatch for heteros, gay men, bisexual males and females and lesbians with persons who are transgender; as an the outward appearance and a mismatch with the gender one desires intimacy and sex with – the clothes away from heterosexual, but combined with the co-opting feminist intersectionality theory and pushing a penis into it; and especially the pornography term cotton ceiling, the confession of fetishization of lesbians, which frustration is not ours to resolve. Human rights recognition is all that is owed – dignity in the public square

and the loss of safe and crisis space for women – such as rape and battered women’s shelters for mostly heterosexual women, but also bisexual and lesbians – and the newly emerging pansexuals

seeking safety from partners who control the language, the financial and relationship decisions, and who cannot accept a no inside or before a relationship even.

and bisexuals having the usual of being thought to be more likely to cheat, while being sought by men for threesomes

each person identifies themself in terms of who they are and who they seek to date.

heterosexuals, gay men, bisexuals and lesbians are clear in that by the words.

the pansexual group is distinct from bisexual and is a word that includes attraction to transpersons

to each group their own label to advertise who a person is seeking to partner with, monogamously or polygamously with informed consent

and anyone who complains they are unable to get dates, need to work on their appeal, not cry fowl, bigotry, name call, complain about stereotypes or social standards, and generally demonstrate what an unappealing and inconsiderate person one is of other people’s human rights and identity

which, a demographic which forms a dating pool, such as lesbians or gay men, everyone is not secretly bisexual or trying to mimick heterosexuality

and a person feeling like they belong is demonstrated by those in the dating pool not including them

and while a person may have a diagnosis of trans, or be uncomfortable with one’s own body – it is not up to any other person to date you and ignore their own senses and own identity to be validator

Lesbians are vagina experts as gay men are penis experts

bisexuals enjoy both, but not a blend of both genders in one body

and bisexuals can date each other, as well as often heterosexuals, gay men and sometimes lesbians, which prior to marriage equality, bisexual women tended to have longer relationships with men, and bisexual men did too.

pansexuals date whoever; because everyone is dating another person.

no one enjoys being a fetish across demographics especially

nonbinary is an emerging demographic which has yet to form a clear recognition in and out of the demographic and males may not self identity out of being part of the gender oppressing women and the majority of the violence and sexual violence threats, any more than women may nonbinary self identify away from potential harm – and no women’s sexuality protects them the socialized and individual male gender caused violence.

Lesbians are not the caretakers and validators of the rest of the letters who are unclear on what lesbian means an apparently are okay with rape culture when no does not mean no anymore but a challenge to escalate to name calling and shaming.

Transpeople are not marginalized by gay and lesbian and bisexuals, but by their population statistics, with most seeking relationships with heterosexual men

Lesbians get to date other lesbians, without being shamed or excluded from the community which is ignoring lesbians have a right to say no to a date with anyone, but also as a demographic to say transwomen are not lesbians and are a category of incel – to be polite, for lesbians, transwomen are clothes from heterosexuality – and transphobia is the hetero justification for rape and murder – so the lesbian no to a date is very much the opposite; and in the case of a transwomen and a lesbian, it is the lesbian who is the rape vulnerable body; especially if denied a no to a date, which means not having a no to sex, which is denied informed consent, a no and by the logic extreme, even the safeword to end sex when the sex is unwanted or the scene includes something not consented to.

We helped Gay men with Aids after the heteros women did not help lesbians after they got reproductive and workplace rights

Lesbians are woman centric, and we have the choice and right to be

without being slurred, shamed or judged for who we do not date

any more than who we do

in fact, everyone needs to stop being bothered because most people are not dating you

and stop being bothered who is dating who

and stop harassing others who have nothing to do with your life nor you theirs

Genetics: Sexuality and Gender

not being studied at all is worse – there being studies with differing claims matters not to that there are clearly existing people who are

lesbians, gay men, bisexual women and men. we are a sexually reproducing species and some of us have non heteronormative sexualities.

persons with body dysmorphia, including transgender identification –
are another issue of gender identification rather than having an identifiable gender.

to those who are rejecting socially constructed roles, and establishing a generational response to generations before…

https://science.thewire.in/the-sciences/why-biological-studies-on-queer-people-do-more-harm-than-good/Why Biological Studies on Queer People Do More Harm Than Good – The Wire ScienceWhen studying vulnerable groups, scientists should always be aware of the context in which their studies take place.science.thewire.

gay man

Very dangerous and ignorant article. This essentially opens the door for any cult-like doctrine that anyone wants to have on the issue, basically saying any conclusion is valid, and that undermines the real struggles many of us are going through. It basically says “you can define it any way you feel or want”… NO, you can’t. There’s real science behind this stuff, it isn’t just a whim or a choice.

lesbian

exactly, it is a bizarre position to claim doing research is harm, it is only that research that is unsupportable that causes harm when accepted and not challenged.

gay man


I think some are also afraid that the science might invalidate any narrative they have pre-conceived in their head. I’m sorry, but that’s how the world works. A lot of people don’t like the way science invalidates their religious beliefs too. I don’t care, the answer is NEVER to stop doing science.

lesbian

science does not support the trans theory of gender, which is men trying to redefine words for everyone else and make every issue about their penis. intersectional is about ethnicity, and other demographics such as overweight are also not comparable to genitals in sex selection scenarios.

Humans are sexually reproducing species and gay men and lesbians are nonprocreative in sexual orientation.
but why are science, medical and therapy professionals catering to the patients at the expense of the public and especially women. and I should not have to say “actual” or “real”

gay man

And in our community we have impostors. We can’t say that in the current climate without being called bigots, but it’s true. It’s an unfortunate consequence of our community becoming overall more accepted in hetero society, marriage being legalized etc. Of course those are all great developments, but it has spawned a subculture of people trying to pose as LGBTQ (usually trans, but I’ve seen gay posers as well) because they think it’s hip or cool. Then they try to redefine everything for the rest of us. I’m seeing this getting worse and worse and I’ve been trying to speak out more against it.

lesbian

rock hudson played straight pretending to be gay to get doris day… predators will do whatever they will to get what they want and heteros are more seeking not the problem than being actual allies and that is part of it.

animal species mimick and predators are predators. which is why the vulnerable need protecting and predators should not be enabled or catered to. gay and lesbian rights have been reduced to dating trans and that was never a gay or lesbian issue to gain housing, work, marriage equality and all the rights that go with kinship.

gay man

I think it’s mostly happening in psychology and I am wondering that as well. I think in other areas of medicine it’s a controversy with a lot of opposing viewpoints. I think in biology and anatomy, it’s less of a controversy because we already have a pretty grounded understanding of what happens here.

lesbian


yes. we are dealing with a population with a self image at odds with reality and we do not need to define words that describe the species for a small portion of the population with delusions they get violent when challenged. we do not expect atheists to practice the religions rejected. we have patients running the asylum and doctors with perpetual patients they are over championing to the detriment of all

the professionals are focused on solving the clients problem and lacking the wider human experience perspective.

….

My adult lesbian coming out was the early 1990s. before the genome project was completed early, and the italian study identified a gene that express in women resulted in higher fertility and younger sons of these women were more likely to be gay.

Perhaps owing to the genetic traces left by siblings, allowing a variation of male personalities to express. After all, women who have sons first have fewer heart attacks owing to social pressure and preference for sons.

the religious conservatives who relied on early science of victorian era measuring everything to determine who was permitted to marry and eugenics/jim crow laws and systematic application of personal prejudice

so science was accepted by religious conservatives for purposes of prejudice on ethnicity, but denied science in the classroom – focused on biology never understanding that science would develop better tools.

The objection to gay men and lesbians was our rejection or procreative sex, but sex or intimacy and sex for fun. The idea that one did not have to be heterosexual was the emotional charge behind the protect the children, and keep like us – far more at risk of incest and abuse in family than by stranger gay men or lesbians.

many children who clearly do not conform to those norms often being the target of, and forming the second largest homeless population, where, more often than not, into sex work to survive, and treated little better by stranger adults, who really ought to know better.

but in the 1990s. the religious right then demanded science to prove gay and lesbian was not a choice.

which, there is no reason under the law why it cannot be.

and given the anal sex fixation of those persons against LGBT, closest cases projecting self loathing explains a lot.

In any event, now that the human genome is cataloged, we can start to see genetic markers for sexuality but there are still things to learn

the real thing is that there does not need to be any higher authority other than a lesbian, or gay man, or bisexual person and transpersons to be human rights credited to exist and not be harmed or obstructed in the public square.

but there is no obstructing others going about their life, not interfered with by others.

human culture gives meaning to colours and types of clothes, hair and adornments, including make and up and perfume, which has been used by everyone throughout all cultures over time.

women being restricted in the public square until western nations in the modern post contacted, post colonial tall ships era, through the televised cold war, and across the internet from data exchange to cyberwar theatre.

the world continues to be heterosexual men and now everyone under under the umbrella “not men” or “women”

no one has to date, marry or socialize with anyone they do not chose to, and the law should not be a barrier to any two who do wish to. nor society

but in the public square, and the workplaces, we have to get along

humans have overpopulated the planet, and climate changed.

religious fears driving having children to recruit into religion, instead of learning how to live on the planet… that we have been able to understand for more centuries than those in the bronze age

in the 1960s. biologists and not to mention farmers of every decade and century saw animals enjoying same gender sex and more species are documented

as the meme says, only homo sapiens are bothered by it

further consideration: look up bonobos

meanwhile:

welcome to not a new problem at all,

some bisexual, gay men and lesbians can pass for straight and many of us did not fit into what others thought men or women were

transpersons also experience this

as well as some heterosexual women who are not traditionally feminine.

gay man

Exactly! This is nothing new. And on a smaller scale we even experience it within our own community. Gay men are expected to be overtly effeminate and flamboyant, and not to be into anything traditionally “male.” Lesbians are expected to be butch and masculine and not to have any effeminate qualities. Trans people have similar expectations. We need to shatter stereotypes and stop trying to fit each other into all these micro categories.

lesbian

gay men from leather lads to twinks is a range of maleness, while lesbians have done nonbinary as dykes as butch and femme go in and out of decade fashion. meanwhile. there is also no one way to be a heterosexual or bisexual either

meanwhile transwomen tend to embrace the worst of hetero porn archetypes…. and transmen do not make an impression publicly

i think autism is at the core of the micro and demi steps of over categorizing as if the sum total of any person. word combination games over actual a group of individuals

David Bowie started a four-week run at the top of the UK charts with his third No.1 album ‘Diamond Dogs’. The cover art features Bowie as a striking half-man, half-dog grotesque painted by Belgian artist Guy Peellaert. It was controversial as the full painting clearly showed the hybrid’s genitalia. Very few copies of this original cover made their way into circulation at the time of the album’s release.

Dolly Parton was at No.1 on the US country chart with ‘I Will Always Love You’. Elvis Presley indicated that he wanted to cover the song. Parton was interested until Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, told her that it was standard procedure for the songwriter to sign over half of the publishing rights to any song Elvis recorded. Parton refused. ‘I Will Always Love You’ later became a worldwide No.1 hit for Whitney Houston in 1992 when featured in The Bodyguard.

In which a Lesbian and a Gay Man discuss “women”

Gay Man posts:

Women are their own worse enemies than just men:
As long as women bash other women and men, there will be no equal rights for women.

It’s bad enough that men judge women and ridicule or mock them; but when other women do it, it’s a slap on the face in the worse manner ever. Women need to stand with their fellow women and say enough is enough.

So as a woman, would you support a woman who gets a raise more than you? Is more beautiful than you? Or a woman who wears clothing, that’s revealing? Who is your boss? A woman who wants to be a President or Prime Minister? If so, then why no women have been elected? When will women get their human rights? Never?

Time to grow up!

Lesbian replies:

not quite. women had centuries of no rights and our only life occupation was to attach to a man. women undermining women from the oppressed state and not empowering each other is not the same as male oppression. … victims who call out oppressors are not bashing. men, hetero men are still the main criminals, rapists murderer and oppressors – starting with other men and then women, so …
I am wondering what made you, as a gay man, call out women on the carpet so to speak?

Gay Man

Because women need support, if not from men, at least from women. If that’s even possible.

Lesbian

yes, I agree women do need to support women, and I am still wondering what inspired this post. women who compete for men rarely support each other…

the best thing men can do to support women is deal with the men who harm and harass women and not do the ‘but I am a good guy” who is a bystander seeking validation for nothing

women for women, do help and empower women.

Gay Man

Exactly. On Facebook, they made fun of me when I posted this. What’s wrong with people? Lol

Lesbian

and, women are not generally raping and murdering other women. so the threat from men is greater than the threat of other women, with rare exception.

well. in queerdom there is an issue because “transwomen” are telling lesbians we do not get a no to a date request without being debated, words redefined and name called. so that is rape culture and not what women do.

lesbians do not have penises nor do lesbians have sex with a person who has a penis. men need to understand the word no and that not everything is for or about them and their self image is their own and others are not required to validate that any more than respect religion

and it does not help that bisexual women are behaving in the same hetero male manner.

Gay Man

Can you rewight my post; maybe I wrote it wrong. You are way better at this than I am. ❤

Lesbian

the intention of what you wrote was there, but the emphasis of starting with women on women without the context of male on women first. I can rework that one paragraph – and I would like to put this on my blog.

I will work on this and get back to you with a paragraph

this morning when I woke my, I realized that the Ultimate Femist Joke is transwomen name calling lesbians for saying no.

gay man

You are the best. ❤💕

Later in the day

Lesbian

okay, the reason you had a bad reaction is that it is ambiguous which group of women you are saying should be supporting with the word woman being fought over as to type of word and what nuances are included

the chant of “biphobia, transphobia, sex work phobia and islamophobia” in one breath on the subject of lesbians and who lesbians date is word salad.

Islam is a religion that oppresses and genocides LGBTQ2 globally and oppresses heterosexual women.

Sex work is a human trafficking exploitation global problem and not a middle class internet side hustle; it is horrific child, teen and adult persons and primarily the female gender.

and as for “biphobia and transphobia” which are separate dating choices, which are sequenced in particular order for escalating degree by the fourth separate data claim is stupidifying and leaves one not knowing where to start to respond.

and to which has to be said, what kind of women tell other women, in particular lesbians, who they cannot refuse to date/have sex with, and reject a no with name calling, bulling, words being redefined in no relation to lesbian, and threats of career loss and exclusion from LGBT, on a matter of personal choice arising from preference which are not subject to human rights claims nor other people’s value judgements.

and brush aside the actual experience of women and tell lesbians that a penis is a vagina, when lesbians are the vagina experts of all women.

and same for some bisexuals who are not transphobic who are not pansexuals.

Dating consent is predicated on informed consent and being denied a no to a date is a violation of Lesbian human rights of freedom of choice and expression. real humans, of any demographics, do not support rape culture.

And, just as atheist’s do not have to revere or respect the content of the belief that religions are, no other person is required to override their own senses and beliefs in favor of a belief another person’s mind, such as transgender.

Nor date a bisexual who does not have the same sexuality as lesbian, and each person is able to decide on monogamy or poly, and how much compatibility there is and degree of difference will vary across indivudals, but generally lesbians are interested in lesbians.

lesbians get to be, the same way gay men get to be interested in other gay men

further, the murders by heteromen are not the fault or responsibility of lesbians or bisexuals or pansexuals, who are also at risk from that same demographic as well as transwomen unable to accept a no or respect that others have a right to a no.

The question to be asked is why are transwomen trying to date lesbians at all, when pansexuals and other trans exist? this is male fetishizing women and fixating on the women who are entitled to be repulsed by the male behaviour and genitals, and which dick behaviour is ignoring a no, name calling, debating, with transwomen sounding no different than hetero men who first claim all women are bisexual and the to be lesbians, to put a social context on textbook narcissism and gaslighting

– which is taking away rights and freedoms from lesbians under pressure by not lesbians and dividing lesbians between those who lesbian and those who do not want to be called names. supporting women does not mean excluding or silencing lesbians in public, in professions or personally

bathrooms and elevators are the most dangerous places and all women’s bathrooms were created for the safety of the most vulnerable, and while not all transwomen are dangerous predators, the ability of men to now claim woman status does in face allow heterosexual men to claim to be transwomen, which claim is a matter of internal image, which others do not have to share at their own senses, nor at public or women’s saftey.

there is that full explanation, or there is this:

Telling lesbians that a penis is a vagina, until you realize that lesbians are vagina experts.

gay man

I’m so bad at these women’s rights. I can’t even write a post or an article. I’m not an expert at conveying my thoughts as well as you. You are way better at it than I am.

lesbian

other people were projecting their own talking points at you Alex. I read what you wrote and saw all the interpretations. and this discussion is so toxic right now because transwomen are zerosumming and defining words and using false comparisons and behaving as incel versions of religious zealots.

  • ❤1

that lesbians are getting the brunt of the trans backlash is lost on bisexuals and gay men seem to be realizing as they are not under the date transmen, transmen continue to be deemed lesbians.

  • ❤1

so. you asked a lesbian which is the best thing to do to get good about women’s rights. because no man, whatever demographics or identy, gets to define womens rights.

lesbian

“cotton ceiling” is a pornography term for lesbian panties in shedick and shecock porn.. let that sink in.

only human rights require respect, dating not including for attempts to void human rights of lesbians, and women’s biology and experience, in the public and bizarrely the medical and therapy industry.

given, gives pause and concern that there may well be a reason to fear trans to disagreement with, whereas to be phobic of a group of people is what heterosexual men claim as a defence to murder.

Disinterest and not attracted to in the social or dating sphere, is not phobic.

nor is it bigotry, is it not attracted to.

plus consent requires informed. Trans status does have to be disclosed, given lesbians do not have penises, nor enjoy or seek sex with penises on any other person, regardless of self identity, which does not supercede the perception of others, who may reject any offer, not attracted and repulsed by, owing to both responses informing preferences. 

ignoring the clear preferences of others, and signs of not interested in eye contact or what you are saying as you are explaining why they do not get to know what gentials you are offering for sex as a hook up or as a date for is a sign of not into you, regardless of whatever you are.

telling others what words mean and that they are bigots is not the discussion that leads to consent for hook ups or dating, and is a clear and obvious pattern of language that should be understood as abusive to the person being told they do not have a no.

even if a person agrees to a date and agrees to sex, at any point, sex can be stopped and consent withdrawn.

even if the gentials are born female but especially for a born female with a born male partner who is sperm producing, owing to the sex having potenial consequences other than a one time sex or one time date.

pregancy, in an era where abortion rights are at high level court risk, for

women

a word once understood only has Heterosexual woman without that word needing to be said for woman for for man.

as wel as very legitimately, sexually transmitted diseases

never mind being for lesbians of all women, an unappealing, uninteresting and mostly revulsive genitals that there is an absolute no to put mouth, hands or own gentials against, and could not be further from lesbian sex to the degree that anyone who is unable to look online and see examples of, lesbians do not have penises nor sex with penises.

there is no feminist nor lesbian feminist theory that is derived from phallo centric, be it penis or she dick or she cock

i seriously do not want to risk wordpress turning those last two into links to images.

feminism is the theory that women are equal and lesbianism is the practice, because in couples/poly geometry we are. cunning linguists who do not zero sum.

being called names after saying no, validates the no, not the asker

social relationships, do the math.
