Saw this acronym yesterday on a press release from a "gay rights" nonprofit, although I assume they'd take issue with the term gay rights at this point.

Apparently "2S" stands for "two spirits."

I'm all for inclusivity. I am a trans ally. I believe everyone should be able to identify themselves however they want. But to me, an acronym like that signals a kind of deep triviality. It's confusing and off-putting, as well as non-inclusive in its own way.

End rant.

It was a mistake to give bisexuals their own letter. They share concerns with lesbians and gays when they are in same sex relationships, so Lesbian and Gay has them covered. Yes, they are “different,” but not different enough to warrant their own letter. Once that ship sailed, the rest was inevitable.

Ts do face distinct challenges. So distinct that they really should stand on their own now.

I've rarely heard 2S used. I understood it as a native American term.

I think the full acronym is: LGBTQQIAAP+ which is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally and pansexual with the + intended to cover anything additional (presumably like two spirit).

But, let's be honest, 99% of people just say LGBT+ to cover it all.

The only people that needed legislation and support to combat bigotry were gay men and lesbians who faced discrimination just because of who they are attracted to, they never asked for extra rights only to be treated fairly so that they were not discriminated against at work, for housing and other legal protections married couples have.

Being gay does not require hormones or cosmetic surgery it does not require people to change their language and use pronouns or to deny reality by making others participate in head games.

You are conflating sexuality with “gender expression” which is self imposed and a human invention.

by Anonymousreply 46April 4, 2024 8:22 AM

R46 I feel like calling someone with gender dysphoria a "tranny" (or similar) isn't much different as calling a gay person a homophobic slur.

I think my experience of receiving homophobia in the past means I don't abuse other minorities because I know how it feels. Insults should always be based on character. So if a gay or trans person is being an asshole then obviously call them out for it, but for their behaviour not for their sexuality or dysmorphia.

I know it's going to fall on deaf ears, though.

Well said R47. Your whole post. Very reasonable and smart. No it doesn't fall on deaf ears because I feel the exact same way as your post. I remember the homophobia too and sometimes I still get treated with homophobia even though I'm 53 now. I refuse to inflict the way it makes me feel to be on the receiving end of homophobia on anybody else. We are all just doing the best we can with what we have. Why shit all over other people to try to make them miserable and less than. People who do this disgust me.

As for the acronym - I'm gay and I just use LGBT and that covers everything. Anything else is overkill and it's gut-wrenching watching straight people trying to say the longer acronyms thinking they are being respectful towards us. Perhaps LGBT+ if it's really necessary?

R48 Thanks. And yeah, I suppose the people who do it are sad in some way, otherwise they wouldn't try to bring others down with slurs.

I agree LGBT is just fine. There seems to be an increasing trend of demanding the T be removed. Whereas LGB and T people have shared history. No we're not all the same, but there are similarities. I can only think those that want to remove T from LGBT don't know any trans people, as they wouldn't want to throw friends under the bus just because there are some bad faith trans people out there.

R49 - I disagree. There's obviously lots of similarities between gay men and lesbians, though each have issues that effect one more than the other. Bisexuals, again there's some cross over.

But gender identity / gender expression has very little in common with sexual orientation. Sure you can be trans and gay, lesbian or bi, but the majority are almost certainly heterosexual. They've never been persecuted over their sexuality.

As for asexuals - they can just fuck off. No one has ever lost their job or their home because they're asexual. As a gay man, with a typical man's libido, I have nothing in common with them at all. They don't want to have sex? Great. I don't care. They doesn't make you special or interesting or have anything in common with gay men, lesbians and bisexuals whose inherent being (and reason they are hated) is over who they fall in love with and / or have sex with.

R54 It's not about asking for anything. I see it as more of a 'pride' thing. Historically asexual people have either been criticised for not being interested in sex or have themselves felt as though they must be defective in some way for not experiencing sexual attraction to anyone.

With that in mind, I see no issue with adding it to a list of minorities if only to raise awareness that some people are asexual and if that's you it's perfectly natural and you don't need to beat yourself up about it.

I remember back in college (early ‘80s) there was an issue with the campus Gay Student Union trying to encourage more daily engagement in its office. There was a large weekly meeting at various campus locations, but the regular office was open for walk-ins. You could hang out, socialize between classes. People started to complain eventually because there were the same students always there. Some nervous types would come in and then run out almost immediately. The GSU determined that the problem was with its name- it wasn’t inclusive enough.

They thought by changing the name to include lesbians, bisexuals, or trying to figure out how to include various races in the new name, that people would be more comfortable coming into the office and staying. I told them that they didn’t need a name change. They just needed to change their attitude. It didn’t matter what the sign would have said on the door, the office was usually full of prissy, insufferable, bitchy queens who would drive away anyone who wanted to participate.

It doesn’t matter what you call yourself, it matters how you treat the people you claim to represent.

On the GLAAD stage. [bold]"There is no LGBT without the T"[/bold]. Everyday the Tranz Community insults and marginalizes the gay men and lesbians who fought for equal rights. Tranz want to prance around in dresses and go into girls locker rooms. They want to tell biological parents how to raise their children with puberty blockers.

Why does 2S come before the LGB?

What does Two Spirit mean anyway?

Today it's Dawn French, who has been friendly with noted genocide-wanter JK Rowling.

I don't know why the go-to on here is to immediately call someone "elderly" for expressing annoyance with this issue. The biggest group to laugh and point at this nonsense is, believe it or not, Gen Z and millennials. Who do you think came up with "I identify as an apache helicopter?" Certainly not senior citizens.

We dump on Gen Z a lot here, but let's not make it seem like they're all behind this. A significant portion of them are actually becoming less supportive of the LGBT community as a whole. That should tell you something. The upcoming youth are becoming more homophobic.

Someone tried that with me once and I replied, "You're a bigoted age-ist."

[quote] Gays inc BLT+++ based on the latest Gallup are 7.2% of the US population. Anyone that knows even a little about math and % should understand where gay rights come from. Thank the 93%. Simple math.

So black people have American white people to thank for their rights. That’s what you mean.

No, black people have Marsha P. Johnson to thank for their rights. She led the March on Selma.

[quote]As for asexuals - they can just fuck off.

r52 Hey, guess what? Some LGBs are also asexual. I guarantee it was them who decided to include the A in the acronym. Straight asexuals wouldn't feel any connection whatsoever with the LGB community. It was probably gays, lesbians, and bisexuals who experience same-sex romantic attraction but still don't experience sexual attraction (and were further confused about their identity) that decided to include the A. In fact, it was probably gay men who are asexual. Because I'm sure there is nothing further isolating than coming out as a gay man, but then realizing you're also asexual and then being ostracized by other gay men within the community.

Straight asexuals, sure. They have nothing to do with the community. However, I've rethought my opinion on the A being included due to the existence if homo and biromantic asexuals within the community. If anything, the A should be a subcategory.

And frankly, most people don't think asexuality is even real and are insistent on pathologizing it and convincing asexuals that they're "mentally ill" or "sexually disordered." Sound familiar? It also doesn't help that the main people who publicly advocate for asexuality while claiming to be asexual themselves come off as...odd.

Oh, ffs. Asexuals who experience romantic attraction are the reverse of people who only desire sex with others and not committed, romantic, relationships. There.

Traditionally, Native American two-spirit people were male, female, and sometimes intersexed individuals who combined activities of both men and women with traits unique to their status as two-spirit people. In most tribes, they were considered neither men nor women; they occupied a distinct, alternative gender status. In tribes where two-spirit males and females were referred to with the same term, this status amounted to a third gender. In other cases, two-spirit females were referred to with a distinct term and, therefore, constituted a fourth gender. Although there were important variations in two-spirit roles across North America, they shared some common traits:

**** Hmm. A mess, basically.

The original acronym was about sexualities not gender and not people who don't experience any sexual attraction.

I just use the term LGBT and I don't get worked up by any of it. I can only control what I say and do.

"Ruth Hunt became Stonewall CEO in 2014, after promising a key group of lesbian members including Kate Harris that SW would remain LGB. SW then met with 700+ trans people and added the T, reneging on her pledge. Hunt refused to respond to lesbians’ concerns"............And now you know the rest of the story.

The term 2 spirit was coined in 1990 and was applied to Native Americans but it wasn’t and still isn’t taken seriously by Native Americans (think Latinx).

LGB can stand alone and the others which are to do with gender or being sex repulsed can cluster together for another acronym.
