Genders & Sexualities
Okay, going to be super informal in writing this (sorry) and I'm going to apologize in advance for the way I word things. Please give me feedback with your opinion, just try not to chew me alive, okay?
This is a pretty common topic nowadays.
Sexualities is surprising something I have no problem with, but I do believe there to be only three: Heterosexual, Homosexual, and Bisexual. Asexual is weird in my opinion. And don't even get me started with the differences between sexuality and romantic orientation.
Gender is where things get more iffy with me. I believe most people are what they are born, but I also get people feeling as though they were born in the wrong "body" so to speak. So cis and trans, I'm okay with.
It's once you get passed those that I have a problem.
I have a friend who is gender neutral (even though she uses the pronoun she, since she was born as a female). I personally find this weird. You have to be a gender.
I have another friend who is demi. For those of you who don't know this term, it basically means that you are a certain gender sometimes. Kind of like gender fluid, which means it depends of the day on what gender you are. I personally find this weird as well. How are you only a boy sometimes?
I fully understand cis and transgender, and understand you either like the opposite gender, same gender, or both. It's the other ones I don't personally understand or agree with.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
