Unpopular opinion from an (l)gbt individual. I’d love to hear your opinions in the comments. So many of these “genders” and “sexualities” that fifteen year olds on tumblr make up are so stupid, honestly. Let’s use for example cupiosexual. The definition for cupiosexual from asexuality.org is stated as, “It is [cupiosexual] used to describe asexuals (people who never experience sexual attraction) who still desire a sexual relationship.” Now, firstly, I understand what it says, but this isn’t really a sexuality of it’s own. I am aware it is a subset of asexual, but isn’t that unnecessary? Yes, yes it is. We don’t need people coming up with “subsets” of sexuality x or gender x. If you are “cupiosexual” then aren’t you just a pretty damn unfortunate asexual? And now let’s take gender into account. How about we discuss gender-fluid and the “genders” just like it. The definition of gender-fluid given by google is “denoting or relating to a person who does not identify themselves as having a fixed gender.” Okay, fine, I can kind of see you feeling male one day, female the other, and then maybe non-binary the next. But now let’s take a look at the definition of Crystagender from identitiesandorientations.weebly.com. The website says “Crystagender: gender randomly changes, often feels broken or fractured between multiple genders”. How is this any different from gender-fluid? Yes, you can bring up the part when it states you feel as if your gender is fractured between multiple genders. Well, let’s add bigender into the equation now. If you are gender fluid then you have days where you can potentially identify as “bigender” so wouldn’t that count as being “ . . . fractured between multiple genders”? If you feel like you’re kinda male and kinda female at the same time then that’s just bigender—something a gender-fluid can identify as. In conclusions. Many “genders” and “sexualities” just mirror another gender or sexuality. Now, if you identify as one of the “genders” or “sexualities” called out, I do not see you as invalid as a human being, I just don’t agree with these subsets and find them ridiculous. I wish to add more, but I have a text limit.
