[quote] From about 1988, activists began to use the initialism LGBT in the United States. Not until the 1990s within the movement did gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people gain equal respect. This spurred some organizations to adopt new names, as the GLBT Historical Society did in 1999. Although the LGBT community has seen much controversy regarding universal acceptance of different member groups (bisexual and transgender individuals, in particular, have sometimes been marginalized by the larger LGBT community), the term LGBT has been a positive symbol of inclusion.
Going strong since the 1990s. And it will survive the silly divide & conquer schemes from the right wing trolls pretending to be concerned about women and the gays being usurped by the evil trans agenda.

Best comment in the article:
Monkey1 I don’t understand why trans is put under the same umbrella as gay, lesbian, bi. There is nothing in common. I can support them, but they seem to insist on taking the umbrella all for themselves.
THIS - 1000%. And supporting trans to live their lives openly and without prejudice is different than supporting every word or idea that comes out of their mouth.
They've done too much damage to themselves and to the gay community for me to support them anymore.

I wish he would define his terms. Charlotte Clymer argues that any claims of children getting drugs or surgery for trans has been debunked. I don't know whether that is the case in the US. I know that it was happening in the UK at NHS, but I believe the policy has changed after the outcry. It may be that JK Rowling was influential in that as well after she refused to back down from this attacks.
Women continue to lose body sovereignty in this country. And there has been this whole issue of gay and lesbian erasure for young people. Apparently, there is a lot of pressure to transition rather than admit to being gay or lesbian, which seems inappropriate. Then many regret it later after they have damaged their bodies. It seems to me that in the population heterosexual is the majority, lesbian/gay is the minority and trans is a tiny fraction. Gender and sexual identity issues should be taught in health classes that should be mandatory in high school. That would include statistics, biology/ physiology and sociology/psychology.

I'm tired of people saying this unspecific 'a lof of the same arguments to trans are the same ones about gays'. Really? Like what?
It's a phase? Ok - I'll buy that. BUT, if you suck a dick and find out it isn't for you long term, you just stop sucking dick. Trans are pressured to NOT de-transition.
It's not natural? Homosexual behavior is found throughout the animal kingdom. There are some cases where some animals can change gender based on their environment, but that is a natural transformation. They're not hacking off their genitals or breasts and not taking hormones.
Other than that - I don't see ANY similarities with the arguments. I wish people would either state what is similar instead of sweeping away all concerns by saying it's just like anti-gay discrimination. No, it is NOT. Present your case, otherwise shut the fuck up and listen to what people are saying.

If a child is very unhappy and gender dysphoria is thought to be part of it then yes they should be able to see a counsellor or get mental health support a lot quicker than they do now. Any counsellors worth their salt would be aware that "I don't like how my body developing" is not a reason to prescribe puberty blockers.
If after several counselling sessions a severe case of gender dysphoria is confirmed and peer reviewed then a full competency assessment should be done to assess whether the child can really consent to life changing medical treatment.
Rushed and inadequate care is one of the reasons there's such a problem now. But it doesn't mean there isn't a problem and *SOME* kids will end up transitioning properly.

But that's exactly what happens. Ask yourself what kind of person becomes a 'gender transition counsellor' in the first place. Someone ideologically committed to the trans absurdity, that's who. It is people like that who staffed the Tavistock Clinic in the UK and fast tracked your girls and boys onto puberty blockers and then on to even more damaging hormones, as well as surgical mutilation. That is what happened to Keira Bell, a young lesbian who transitioned and then realised she had made a terrible mistake. She won a landmark case here in the UK just recently, which put a stop to medical intervention on young so-called 'transgender' people. Keira Bell is a hero, in my view.

I will stand with trans if the following is part of their platform:
1) Trans men and women are not the same as biological women or biological men. They are trans with their own life experience and medical needs/concerns. They have a unique perspective, but they do not know what a woman feels like nor do they know what it is like to grow up as a female. They cannot and do not speak for women or men. They can speak for trans - that is who they are and what they know.
2) Trans women have a physical advantage and do not belong placing in a sports competition with biological women. They can participate, but their medals / placement and records should be noted differently.
3) Trans people need to be defined as those who have, on the whole, transitioned and are taking hormones. It is not a man with a beard in a dress that 'feels like a woman'. There has to be a separation - the trans movement is brought down by these people who have no real desire to transition, just to invade women's spaces and dress up to feel pretty.
4) No child (under 18) should have any body altering hormones or surgeries until they are adults and have matured beyond teen angst and awkwardness with the world.
5) Gays and lesbians have their own communities and history. Trans should have their own. It is not the responsibility of the gay community to push money and resources to the trans community. The trans community have to start their own resources, places, codes of conduct, subcultures, etc. Gays and lesbians should not be pushed to take away money and resources from their own community to support another they are not a part of.
That's pretty much it. Five simple things - then I will support trans. But not today - not anymore after the past 5 years of bullshit.

That seems reasonable, R120. The demand that everyone act as though transgender is the same as "cis"gender is the root of almost all the problems. If they would stop trying to establish that legal fiction and accept themselves for what they are, the whole movement would make so much more sense. I can respect someone's wish to be and act like something else, but I'm never going to accept being told that I'm a bigot because I know there's a difference.

I can support trans rights, but not as part of lgb. Sexual orientation is much different than gender identity. The two shouldn’t be conflated. Put transsexuality with other body dysmorphic issues where it belongs.

I wish somebody would look back at gay and lesbian culture of the 1970s and 80s to see how trans people were regarded by the community then. Because I don’t remember it being a big deal, with drag queens, stone butches, transvestites, and transsexuals all being accepted as part of “us.” Why has it gotten so ugly on both sides?

Good for Ian. I think despite what the anti trans panic brigade on here would have you believe, the LGBT community is these days well organized and in a good place. This is distraction encouraged by right wing and aided by the terf inferiority complex / general insecurity. There are currently 16 trans women in women’s prisons in the UK. Women in prisons are most at risk from the prison guards and patriarchal prison system. Similarly, cuts to local authority budgets are what has put women’s refuges at risk, not trans women. But it suits the right wing politicians to have trans women blamed rather than their own cynical policies. And the losers on here pretending to be gay men and then the occasional gay man that falls for it are just helping them.
Remember that the term LGBT is here to stay, so if you sabotage it you’re your own political enemy as a gay person. And ditto for trans people. We all help each other to help ourselves.

See the jackass below for an example. The bearded cunt claims to be a male and shames gay bottoms who aren't interested in having sex with her. "Why are cis gay bottoms so afraid of getting topped by transmascs y'all stick vegetables and fists up your hole but you won't take a strap? you're weak and you will not survive the winter. you're also missing out because trans guys lay some INCREDIBLE pipe."

What puzzles me -- perhaps someone can explain it -- is how the gay media is 100% obsessed with trans, and half their news stories and features are trans, when presumably trans are but a fractional subset, and most gays and lesbians don't give a flying fuck for trans. How does that make publishing sense? I mean: if you're running a gay magazine, why would half your stories be, for example, about pedophilia? It's like the editors running the magazines have lost focus on their market.

No I won't. Transgenderism is inherently homophobic. They are telling GID children to transition. 80 % of those same GID children would grow up to be gay or lesbian if left untreated. Don't even get me started on how self-ID threaten girls and women everywhere. Transgenderism is misogynistic. It's all based on performance. Men cannot know how it is to be a woman because they aren't women. Hell, most women don't even know what makes a woman, other than biology. There is no right or wrong way to be a woman. Women just are. Trans women are performing a gender stereotype. Being a woman is a lot more than makeup, breasts and long hair. If you support the trans ideology I know you have issues as the ideology is both homophobic and misogynistic.

Surely you are trolling.
First, it's the LGBT Community. For the gay media political issues concerning other members of the LGBT Community are their concern, too. And that's what a community does, help and support every member for the benefit of the whole community. And for the gay media coming to the rescue for the trans, you can thank the right wing and the right wing trolls for that by making it a hot button issue in the first place.
Second, it's the LGBT Community and not the LGBP(edophile) Community. And using pedophilia to argue against trans? Hyperbole, much?

There's no such fucking thing as a LGBT Community. There's only an occasional rag tag of causes, which some people subscribe to. There hasn't been a meaningful one since ACT-UP, and that was over three decades ago! Most LG&B people care nothing for T. We wish them well. But march for them? Protest for them?

People above are right. McKellen didn’t come out until he was almost 50 and a wealthy, successful actor. A chickenshit move but one that now apparently qualifies him to be the go-to gay for the lumpenhets. And he cited ‘the closet’ as an excuse for his creepy mates to use their status and wealth to abuse younger, poorer gay men. Those poor misunderstood predators.
