I don't like this

So I am relatively young but I am not really like other people my age. Why is it acceptable to use words like genderfluid, genderflux, demigender, greysexual, greygender, panromantic, demiromantic, demipanromantic, and lastly enby? It seems to me that the people who use these words treat lgbt like it is some kind of decoration. For me, it has never been that. It is my life and in some ways it has made my life difficult. So I don't appreciate, when, for example, teens use "enby" as it's some kind of club. I feel demeaned, and like the concept is misunderstood. Am I wrong? Help + ps the words are the most frequent I have encountered in young lgbt online groups...

Move out of the city to somewhere in the country. Leave this world and it’s confusing titles behind and go be free. I hope to one day join you.

People always seek to complicate sexual issues. “Hey, wanna fuck?” Is the only label necessary, in my experience.

Get off social media and talk to actual people who I guarantee have no idea what any of those terms mean

I never use those words and I could hardly care about them. OP sounds so OCD about everything around her.

It's acceptable because that is what people choose to label themselves. It doesn't matter what you like or don't like about it.

When it matters is when it affects the wider society, not just an individual.

Why do you find it unacceptable for people to describe themselves in a way that makes the most sense for them?

What you like or don't like is your issue, and I suggest you learn to deal with that pretty quickly since the world isn't going to care.

Nicely done, trollina.

I agree, OP.

P.S. - don't start sentences with So

R7 but it does affect society, so there's that. This isn't a case of people wanting to self label and keep it to themselves -- they want to change laws and force their identity onto others. When there's fines in the work place for using the "wrong" pronouns, it's beyond live and let live.

It also makes a mockery of actual social movements. No one finds it acceptable to self identify as disabled, a different race, and so on (because those groups have different needs) so why accept self identifying as a sex (or non sex in many cases.)

It's a trend for the ignorant and mentally unstable narcissists. It's a form of power, thus some form of control over other people. I honestly don't care if they want to believe they can change sex like a sea horse, but I refuse to be forced to believe it as well, since believing doesn't make it so.

Intersectionality ! The more you are intersected, the more "valuable" you are in society, allegedly.

For example, a straight white male has a 0 rating, whereas, a black man who wants to be a woman is a 7, but a socialist black man who wants to be a woman who wants to date women would be a 10. You get the idea. These terms, gender-fluid,etc., are labels of intersectionality to label people so they feel important and valuable.

It is a really sad psychological problem, if you think about it. People do not think they are worthy to be themselves. I also like to think about how crazy this "trend" of being intersected has occurred in the last ten years.

I also think hormones in the foods we eat cause a lot of these confusions. Please reform the FDA!!!!

I am a gluten-free, vegan, transcendental pansexual and I don’t like labels. I have blue hair and 6 tattoos. I don’t want attention, I don’t. Have you seen my onlyfans?

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
