Culture LGBTQ People Are Forced to Constantly Code-Switch and It's Exhausting - Queer, trans, and non-binary people have to do the extra work of changing how they speak, act and express themselves in everyday spaces.

I feel as if I live on a different planet than these people. There are two types of gay. People like myself and my partner who live regular lives, have respectable jobs in the community and the respect of our neighbors, even if they don't care much for what we do in our own home, we aren't shoving it in their face either and they respect us as hard working and polite people.

The other type of gay people are psychos who spend most of their day trying to out victim each other so they can claim more pity-bux. Whatever happened to just being yourself? Nobody is able to develop interesting personality traits and skills anymore, they demand allies on the basis of victimhood instead of being liked for being an interesting person. I don't know at what point mental illness became acceptable but it's destroying society daily because these people are let loose to inflict themselves on others.

Being LGBT these days is an embarrassment.
Well part of it is the "T" - that part pushed their way to the front and now steers the whole culture. Someone decided (them, probably) to let their mentally ill selves run things, and this group that's what, less than 10% of the gay community and less than .003% of society has started to screech the loudest, and fills everything they touch with loathing and IdPol.

Either fully dedicate to the bit and say "fuck the world I don't care if some stranger at the grocery store doesn't like me" and be "yourself", whatever the fuck that is.
OR drop the act if it's not that important to you and/or you're too much of a pussy to stand up for yourself, in which case it's not really "who you are" if it's not that important to you.

Pick one or the other and stick with it because the world isn't gonna pander to you. Nobody outside of your snowflake bubble cares.
Therefore, you shouldn't pander the world if that's how you REALLY feel and it all isn't just for attention.

It's anti-meritocracy, you deserve to be in charge by what you haven't accomplished, the less the better, since now society MUST check their privilege so you can "catch up" , thats why these movements are thought of as socialist plots by tinfoilers, because that underlying current is the same...

Society cannot take another step until everyone has "caught up"

Intersectional Feminists have to label everything and make it a thing.
I've been wondering that myself for a while, enough to ask if we should give it a name, hah.

Holy shit, they do that on purpose? They think that's a good thing that endears them with people? Good to see more confirmation "Yeah gay culture is about putting on a fake facade".
It's more that that. They act like this because they are very patronising (remember that article saying liberals speak differently to minorities) and, also, SJWs believe that being gay is enough to bond with other people despite there is nothing more in common.

"Code switching" is just another attempt of stupid people trying to take a pseudo-intellectual sounding term and making it mean something sort of similar, but different enough that they need to explain to you what the old term now represents so they can huff their own intellectual farts. Any fucker who uses code switching from an everyday standpoint is fucking stupid as fuck because code switching from its original term has FUCK ALL to do with adapting to different social situations and everything to do with speaking an entirely different language.

“I would attempt to “masculinize” my voice before—that sort of stable, droning mutter,” they said. “It was only after I realized I was genderfluid—neither a man nor a woman—that I became more comfortable slipping in and out of the more feminized voice I’d been so afraid of.”
I've realized that I am a bird. I am now completely comfortable with hopping around while flapping my arms. I used to be so afraid of looking like a complete, self-delusional ninny that might be in need of psychiatric assistance, but finally human rights have gone far and beyond to make sure birds like me can feel comfortable being who we truly are. It's just so exhausting to keep squawking to keep everyone aware of my birdhood - one slip and they might assume I'm human or something, buncha bigoted shits.

real code switching is using different languages not this faggot shit

vice used to be okay, wonder what made it like this
I think Vice has always been a drama-whore website that thrives on outrage. It's just that they found a more captive audience in the current generation of outrage culture.

most spaces entail a risk of violence, hostility and misunderstanding for them—and again, for Black trans women in particular, the risk of death.

Well, that part at least is pretty true. Having a pimp in yo space when bitch don’t have mah money, can be a significant source for both violence, hostility and death!
