Someone recently told me that allies are not part of the queer community. I believe allies who actually support (instead of just tolerating) are a part of the queer community, What are your thoughts?
well. idk how to say this properly, and i apologize if this example is offensive in any way… but i feel like it’s a lot like the black community. you can be white and support black people, but you are not one of them. just the same, you can be an ally but you are not queer. just because you’re not a part of something doesn’t mean you can’t support it, you don’t need your own space in a minority. but that’s just how i feel, i am not in any way speaking for an entire community.
