I'm Pan so I kind of know how you feel about the community, and it disgusts me as well. So much that I kind of just want to start a new community where people who aren't straight, and aren't accepted by the LGBT community can go to.

To me, that’s sort of where the ‘Queer’ community comes in: because a lot of people in the ‘Queer’ community (not just those who identify as queer as a sexuality, but those who ACCEPT queer as a valid term) tend to be those who are marginalized in the ‘LBGT’ community as is.

Of course, it’s hard no matter what, because no community will ever be perfect, but damn skippy will I TRY to be inclusive, especially of those like me that no one else has decided to include.
