Making the Forums More Welcoming to LGBTQ+ People?

As some of you might know, I’ve recently come to the realisation that I am agender/gender non-conforming. I just don’t really get gender and it doesn’t sit well with me as a concept. I just feel like Shannii. Plus, I’m pansexual, so this topic is very close to my heart.

But writing a blog post about this and how it affected my own views of the LGBTQ+ community got me thinking… I want to make sure that I make the necessary steps to make the ShanniiWrites Forums an inclusive place that welcomes everyone from the LGBTQ+ community!

I am really happy that I added the pronouns, but I was wondering if there’s anything else I can do?

I thought you said that you’re bisexual :face_with_raised_eyebrow:(?)

Yeah because people understand bi more than pan :stuck_out_tongue:

But as far as I know, there is a difference between bisexual and pansexual

Yeah! But the difference involves people needing an understanding of gender, so I avoid it at all costs so I don’t have to get into the “I identify as an attack helicopter” stupidity

I could always do a thread on representing religious queer people? I’d love to help!

I think having a like small pride party for whenever it’s their week… Like I’ve never had asexual pride party :spades: And we could have different sorts like Bisexual pride, pansexual pride… I also was wondering why we didn’t have the lgtbqia flags, something I’m used to from…the other place

We could add some LGBTQ+ emojis!

Here are examples from a discord server I’m in. We could do something different but similar :star2:

But what about the people who like gender? :disappointed_relieved:

No, the conservatives won’t like that.

People who like gender hate children

That can be my 3AM thought

I… don’t… get… gender :sob:

Like at all. It doesn’t compute :sob:

Logically it makes sense to me, but emotionally I’m like “wut”
