Really upsetting how the trans cult has poisoned no many words. I groan whenever I see the word LGBT anymore now. I know plenty of people use LGB, but I've honestly grown to hate the whole acronym thing because of all this. I guess when it comes down to it, LGB is united by homosexuality/ same-sex attraction.

When I look at LGB Alliance's Twitter feed, I often see people accusing them of biphobia when they only say lesbian and gay. I find that silly. All LGB people experience same-sex attraction and bisexuals are technically homosexual as well, just not exclusively homosexual. So I guess I'm just going to say homosexuals or same-sex attracted from now on. For me personally, I think it's the most clear and concise way to speak the truth in this sea of trans foolery. Plus I also had a TRA srtaight up proudly admit that same-sex rights are transphobic so it'll piss off the TRAs. What language do you like to use?

Depends who I am talking to, but "gay" is now used for literally anything, so I avoid using that now. And when you use LGB, I think it makes people suspicious. Same-sex attracted is accurate and leaves behind any sort of feelings of community and exclusion. LGBT+ has become a bucket in which you can toss all your oppressed minorities (and then some). So I now almost exclusively use "same-sex attracted" when I'm talking about gay, lesbian and bisexual people and our causes as same-sex attracted individuals.

Exactly same. LGB makes it too obvious you’re dropping the T, and then people get preemptively defensive and unable to listen to anything else I have to say. SSA flies under the radar enough that you don’t get that immediate defensiveness/antagonism, in my experience.
