A Guide to the LGBTQ+ Community

If you are confused about the LGBTQ+ community, I am writing this to help you out. If you are homophobic and reading this, then you shouldn't go to places that don't agree with your opinion and just spew out your opinion on something unnecessary. I am trying to be helpful and homophobes yelling at me is doing just the opposite of that. You can have an opinion, but you should be respectful and polite about it. Thank you!!

5. A few more important things...

If your friend, or anyone, tells you that they are part of the LGBTQA community, please be respectful, it takes a lot of courage and bravery to tell someone this, because this is who they are, but some people don't support them of that. If you don't know what sexuality or gender they identify as, you clearly haven't read the before chapters, but if you still don't know, wait for them to stop explaining if they do explain, and politely ask them what their sexuality/gender identity means. Do not be snarky, do not be rude, if you are confused, ask them about it. It feels like 10 tons of weight being lifted off of their shoulders once they tell someone and that person accepts them for it, trust me. It is relieving to know that at least someone accepts you for being you. 

If you are part of the LGBTQA community, even if you have already come out, if anyone makes a rude remark about your sexuality, you can fire back some snarky remark, but you can also politely explain why you don't like what they said and why they should thin before saying things like that. Let me tell you, that last response type never fails to leave them slightly shocked and taken aback but also off guard, and they might either scramble to apologize, or they might be rude back to you, but if they are rude once again, just walk away from them, it will leave them preaching homophobic crap out at nobody, because walking away shows that you are not only right, but also the better person.

Please do not dismiss any sexualities or gender identities, if there are millions and millions of people that identify with the sexualities/gender identities that you say don't exist, then to them, they do exist. If you don't think they exist, once again, nobody can change your thinking or opinions, but you can be respectful and polite about sharing them when it is appropriate. 

This may be the most important part of this chapter, so please listen up. If you are making rude, offencive, hurtful, or just plain unnecessary LGBTQA jokes and/or comments, STOP IT. Like I said in the last chapter, a lot of LGBTQA community self harms or commits suicide because of the lack of acceptance from their peers.
