I think that the T in LGBT needs to be removed. Now, don’t get me wrong, I fully support all members of the trans community, I just don’t think that trans people fit into the same boat as gays. LGBQ people are only different in that they are attracted to someone of the same sex. That’s very different that people assigned/designated the wrong gender at birth. Trans people have a very different set of issues than gay people, and they deserve recognition. In my experience, things that claim to be about LGBT issues, focus solely or mostly on the LGB part of it.
Plus, the acronym is getting really long. I’ve seen LGBTQIA and that doesn’t include everyone’s identity. It becomes complicated and tries to fit both groups of people into one box.
I think sexualities need one acronym and gender/sex identities need another. That way, issues specific to trans people can be addressed, and agender/genderqueer/any other gender related identity can be included in the acronym.
The same thing goes for pansexuals and asexuals who aren’t in the LGBT acronym even though they are closer to LGBs than T’s. They can be included in the acronym.
Trans people deserve their own acronym and community because in the LGBT community, they are left behind. Homosexual marriage is legal in places, yet there isn’t even an other box for gender on government papers. Trans people are not helped as much. I think making them a whole other group will increase their recognition beyond something of an afterthought to LGBT.
