When Equality Isn’t Equal

Rainbow Flag

Today’s topic comes from QSFer Tracy Rowan: “In a world where gays and lesbians are accepted members of society, are there other orientations/genders which are not? Can you imagine a world where gays and lesbians are as accepted as heterosexuals, but asexuals, transgender individuals, or others are considered abnormal by much of the population, gays and lesbians included? Why?”

I like this topic – it gets to some of the differences in various parts of our community – someone who is transgender is not the same as someone who is gay is not the same as someone who is asexual. We all have a common cause, but there’s fertile ground here, it seems to me, to explore the various sub-communities that make up the larger LGBT (or LQBTQIA) community.

So I’ll ask Tracy’s question just the way Tracy posed it: In a world where gays and lesbians are accepted members of society, are there other orientations/genders which are not? Can you imagine a world where gays and lesbians are as accepted as heterosexuals, but asexuals, transgender individuals, or others are considered abnormal by much of the population, gays and lesbians included? Why?
