I was going to make this yesterday.

tl;dr
“He had an opportunity to listen to what I had to say and handle it differently, and that’s just so heartbreaking. I’m just so shocked by the lack of leadership and concern he showed to my community,” Gutierrez said. “I have no words to describe the rage I feel, and it’s a sign of how much work we have to do.”

Because he didn't put up with you yelling at him and interrupting an event and embarrassing yourself? Mhmm okay.

No, it's a sign that you need to learn some manners and not interrupt people!
I have nothing important to say

More likely it's a sign of his poor vocabulary

Ok I googled it, two more questions

How is queer different from gay and lesbian and why am I getting the rainbow thing just for searching 'lgbtq'

I think "queer" is an umbrella term which makes the whole thing redundant. Or "questioning," as I've heard once.

It's an umbrella term some people are more comfortable using. It encompasses sexual/gender minorities. I like it more, to be honest. It's what I identify as.

I don't know what you mean 'cause it's a legitimate concept created by these nations themselves. like, what I've seen of it in my own life has been actual Navajo for legitimate reasons, not Anglo-Saxon 'outsiders' like 'woah that's cool I'm gonna call myself two-spirit now'.

edit: **** look at you making me go all cockatoo.

>mfw people ascribe these things to tumblr when they've existed long before that or even the internet, and use the existence of tumblr to de-legitimize these things
>mfw people think the A stands for Ally
oh well

Eh, the way he handled it was certainly amusing. The concerns raised are likely legitimate, but at the end of the day rightful anger isn't going to do much an event like that bc anyone who did that would get thrown out regardless of ideology. A small number of people may actually look into such things, and Obama likely will, too (though I imagine he's fully aware of whatever problems there are).

Eh as far as I'm concerned Obama is in the right here. I'm sure they had some legitimate concerns but who honestly thinks that heckling the fucking POTUS while he's trying to talk is gonna get you anywhere? And then trying to play it up by some attack on the trans community as a whole? Please

To be fair that quote a couple of posts ago had 2 A's, so there's that.

Don't really care tbh. A lot of ppl (enough, anyway) think it stands for Allies and it essentially amounts to 'this movement/community that isn't about me? i want it to be about me'.

still doesn't make you actually part of a community that is literally for people who aren't straight/aren't cis . It stands for asexual and it's always been for people whoa aren't straight. 'ally' comes second to 'asexual' because 'ally' isn't the focus of the group. And replacing ace with ally isn't really supporting them, either...

And even then, just because a straight/cis person isn't held under the LGBTQA header doesn't mean they can't support it or that their support isn't noted and appreciated.
