The Problem with the "not caring" contingent is that many claim not to care UNTIL you try to be yourself. Then they care VERY MUCH. "I don't care if you're straight or gay or trans UNTIL YOU MAKE ME AWARE OF IT!" They're happy to ignore, but not to include. It may seem like a small distinction to a straight person, but to LGBTQ folks it can be everything.Okay, but speaking as a straight man within the straight community, most are becoming to accept the gay community. IMO, the way to win over the rest is not to be “in your face”. That doesn’t mean hide your sexualism, it just means slow down on the confrontation. It’s a new(er) thing to be open, and confrontation is not the way to win people over imo.
As a conservative straight man, I have stated my views. I’m sorry if you cannot accept them. I honestly think the gay community would be better received without the drama.
Very few care anymore. That in and of it
Also, as a Bi woman, I use Queer as a self identifier. I respect that it's a too triggering for some, but I like it as an umbrella term.
