(NBC Bay Area)   ACLU up in arms because students of a California high school were told they could only wear "gender appropriate" clothing for school pictures and prom. Did no one think to just get the guys to wear kilts in protest?   (nbcbayarea.com) divider line 38

FirstNationalBastard: I say they should change it to LGTBBQ, because who doesn't love a BBQ?


BBQ is the greatest equalizer in the world, slow smoked meat promotes harmony.  A gay black man who cooks good BBQ could sell it at a Klan rally wearing an evening gown.

Kilts are lame, a half-assed super-safe form of protest.

Wear a dress.  A real one, marketed to women.
Put ribbons in your hair, pigtails.
Dress like Lamar from Revenge of the Nerds.

That's gender-farking.  Wearing a kilt? Might as well wear this

Oh for farks sake.  I'm all for gay rights, I really am. But we're now going to classify people that may have a tendancy to think that it's a possibility that they might have an issue with what they think they want to do in the sack or what type of clothes to wear?


Don't blame me. As far as I'm concerned, it's all about getting gay men the same (superior) rights that straight men have. Everybody else is just coattailing it into the news and into antidiscrimination legislation. I have nothing in common with lesbians - at least straight women have enough sense to like dick. Bisexuals are always going to scamper back to their hetero side whenever things get ugly (and speaking of ugly, how come none of these alleged "I love the INNER person, gender means NOTHing!" bisexuals never have same sex dates that are ugly?) Transgender is a whole other pile of crap that has nothing to with orientation. And if you don't know your orientation, you are just disoriented - it's not a goddam essential part of your identity. Besides, who you want to have sex with and how well you fit into standard gender identity models are absofarkinglutely different things and I am farking sick of people not bothering to differentiate. I am not a sissy, I don't do drag, I can't queen to save my life, I HATE musicals, Glee is worse than waterboarding, I only have three pairs of shoes, and I am the biggest homo there ever was. Did I get crap for it when I was a kid? No, because of all the sissy boys who just hadn't learned how to act like a man yet. The boys who were too polite, the boys who were fussy about their appearance, the boys who were afraid to jump into the scrum - THEY got massive vileness heaped upon them for their insufficiently testosteroney behaviour, while I slid under the radar and then traded bjs with their tormentors behind the gym after school. It's almost never antigay discrimination or abuse. It's anti-sissy, and it is only about forcing gender appropriate behaviour, just like we teach all kind of other this- or that- appropriate behaviour. It has nothing to do with what your dick smells like when you're done with it. Besides, these days most of the Q is just snotty bored kids going to the safest "bad" place to go to scare their pearl-and-anus-clutching parents before settling into a life of failed aspirations, exponential ennui, and quiet substance abuse. It's like an entire generation grew up without googling David Bowie.

RobSeace: ciberido: It's unfortunate that "queer" is still a touchy word because it would be a GREAT way to replace the cumbersome "LBGTQ+' acronym/initialism with a simple, short word.

You really just need a properly pronouncable acronym, and it would no longer be so cumbersome... Someone in a previous thread mentioned QUILTBAG, which I kind of like...


Yeah, but "Quiltbag" sounds like a euphemism for an unshorn scrotum.

Wayne 985: codergirl42: So you think young people that havent figured out thier gender/sexual identity should be excluded simply becuase they don't neatly fit into the GBT label?  Before I transitioned I would have easily fit into the Q column, but since I wasn't out I didn't feel like there was even a place for me in the LGBT community. Yes the T column would apply to me but what about people that aren't interested in transitioning but are still gender non-confirming?

What about gay dwarfs who don't feel they fit entirely with either community? Should we add a "D" in there? Although, I guess "little person" is the preferred nomenclature now, so it would be LGBTQLP. At a certain point, why not just add the entire alphabet?

Look, we all know what "gay rights" broadly entails. It's not excluding anyone if we don't include every possible configuration in a label. If you want a gay rights group to include some sort of a charter or mission statement that includes all of that, go for it. Just make the title something short and to-the-point.


If labels don't matter why do we have Christians, Jews, Muslims, etc. Why even have labels, I think retarded would be an appropriate label to define them all but those pesky religous types demand to have thier labels respected and treated equally.

ciberido: Farce-Side: I always thought queer was a touchy word with most homosexuals.  Well, at least most that I've met I guess, but then again most homosexuals I've met weren't the flaming queen types but just dudes or chicks who happened to like other dudes or chicks.  Kind of like the N word or calling a little person a midget? Again, not trying to troll, honestly trying to learn more.

You are correct.  "Queer" is a touchy word and you should avoid using it unless you already have "permission."  I try not to use it around anyone who might be offended.

I do, however, often refer to myself is "queer," because I gave myself permission.

It's unfortunate that "queer" is still a touchy word because it would be a GREAT way to replace the cumbersome "LBGTQ+' acronym/initialism with a simple, short word.

(And yes, some people use "LBGTQ+" with a plus sign.  I'm big into gay rights, and even I am not sure sure myself what the hell the "+" is for.)


The + is for furries.

mafiageek1980: orbister: After you graduate, kids, nobody will care what minutely differentiated point of sexuality you claim; they'll want to know whether you can program, design cars or, in the case of arts graduates, clean the coffee machine. But beyond all this terribly earnest college-level agonising about labels, who really cares what people wear to and end of term dance at school? As long as it's reasonably smart, what's the big deal about a girl in a dinner jacket or a boy in a skirt? Haven't these people got better things to worry about?

I wish more people could understand this. It's so true. Unless you are in the dating world, it's "what you can do for the company", not what you are wearing. Until then, these poor high schoolers who *dare* go to the prom if they are Trans are denied being who they feel they are. Hell, they just want to dance and party with everyone else. Why stop them?

Q can mean Queer as well.  Some places use I and A as well (Intersex and Asexual), and the acronym is getting so long that a lot of groups are reverting to the classic GSA, but instead of "Gay-Straight Alliance," they use "Gender and Sexuality Alliance."


Yeah... gay dudes, you guys gotta get the acronyms set. It's getting confusing. Not sure if that's intentional or not.

As for the Prom... well... if I showed up dressed like Kurt Cobain on a severe bender, they'd probably send me home. They enforce standards as to what you can wear. Is wearing gender-appropriate clothing a part of that? Maybe, because you know some smartass teenager is gonna find a way to use this to be a smartass.

FTA: Kyle Bodda, president of the Sultana Gay Straight Alliance, said the atmosphere has proven distracting to learning.
"All students should feel safe and free to be themselves at school," Bodda said.


*pinches cheek* Oh, you are adorable. Now get in line behind the punks, goths, skaters and ravers who also want to "be themselves at school" but the dress code says no.

Though I have to admit "gender appropriate" clothes is a dick move. If I wanted to be flashy with silk and lace, the way I would go about is dressing up in Rococo style clothing. Then I could dandy up as much as I want because I would be within the rules. After all, they said gender appropriate, not era appropriate.
