Let the infighting begin

The Redline, a Marxist analysis blog, headlines “LGBT Community is Dead, and the T is to Blame“. However, they still have a problem with the ‘B’ as they claim that suggesting only male and female (two options) is hurtful. B stands for Bi – as in two, like bi-cycle has two wheels.

Should the LGB should just separate entirely off from the T? This article from uncommongroundmedia.com looks at how transgender activists are abusing the LGB and showing total contempt for gay and bisexual women and men.

There is currently a great schism within the LGBT community and this can be attributed solely to the actions of the transgender movement.

In a 2007 article for Salon, John Aravosis, a longtime gay rights advocate, writes:

?In simpler times we were all gay. But then the word ?gay? started to mean ?gay men? more than women, so we switched to the more inclusive ?gay and lesbian.? Bisexuals, who were only part-time gays, insisted that we add them too, so we did (not without some protest), and by the early 1990s we were the lesbian, gay and bisexual, or LGB community. Sometime in the late ?90s, a few gay rights groups and activists started using a new acronym, LGBT ? adding T for transgender/transsexual. And that?s when today?s trouble started.?

Anyone who follows LGBT news is aware of the troubles of which Aravosis talked about back in 2007. Troubles between the LGBT movement and, in particular between the LGB and the T, have created tension in the movement; tension which has brought the movement at the brink of a schism.

A particular incident that revealed the schism which exists between the LGBT community took place at London Pride 2018. At London Pride 2018, a group of lesbians, who were part of the group ?Get the L out? had protested against the inclusion of transwomen in their community. More specifically, disillusioned by the attempt of organizations who traditionally campaigned for LGB rights, such as Stonewall, to exclude LGB individuals, such lesbian groups call for the L to be taken out of LGBT in order to protect female homosexuals.  Read the rest of the article here
