The main problem with the gay / transgender/ etc movement is that for most of them, their sexuality defines who they are. It becomes riveted to every aspect of their lives. This only reinforces stereotypes and they begin to see themselves and portray to others that their personality IS being gay. While I aboslutely support the gay movement, I think people should just be people, sexuality is private and personal, and you dont have to be offended by it, nor do you have to force it in everyones faces all the time.
I see the same issue with other groups, but they usually have an emaciated culture, such as blacks and african culture. theres other stereotypes now and the variety is so large .. but among activists and civil rights leaders there seems to me a rebirthing of their previous genetic culture through politics.
for gays, their culture sprang out of (take that how you wanna take it lol) the political movement itself, and their culture is one that simply reinforces that they are different because of their sexuality. no they arent. they are the same. so all you gays, stop acting so damn GHEY! and just be a science fiction writer, a homeless bum, a lawyer, a singer, a burger flipper who likes anime and marijuana, just be yourself and not the personification of gayness.
PS – hopefully this wasnt offensive. for the record, im half-gay.
