ace/bi/nonbinary discourse is basically gay people fearing that straight people will fake being lgbt+ for attention and then end up destroying the entire community. its not really justification for any of the shit exclusionists have been doing but this is basically the real motive behind their actions. they’ve all just been too much of a clit baby to say it, which is kind of stupid as it could be their best argument. it actually holds water compared to the previous ‘but straight/cis!!!!!!’ banter we’ve been getting. its a legit fear and you are fooling yourselves to say it hasn’t happened. straight people have faked being lgbt+ to be cool on tumblr and now the community is basically a mockery in the real world. its still not an excuse to exclude two valid identities from access to resources and validation because (surprise surprise) if straights are willing to fake being bi, ace, or nonbinary they are willing to fake other identities as well. unfortunately there is no real way of knowing whether or not somebody is really straight/cis or not so i mean policing the community will get you no where but on everybody and their significant other’s blocklist so… yeah.
With your future little would you post gifs or pictures with her or would you want to keep her all to yourself?
