Since the inception of the LGBT movement in 1988, people across the country have decided to grab onto their titles with pride. However, many Americans who are not of the now LGBTQ group are confused. This confusion leads to many questions and misguided references about how a person is identified.
Any title that a person holds is special to them. Whatever they identify with should be given proper respect. People should use the correct terminology for all individuals and should be educated in knowing what the titles mean.
Here are some title definitions to aid you in your search for the correct terminology.
Agender– adj. A person with no (or very little) connection to the traditional system of gender, no personal alignment with the concepts of either man or woman, and/or someone who sees themselves as existing without gender.
Bicurious– adj. A curiosity about having attraction to people of the same gender/sex.
Demisexual– adj. little or no capacity to experience to experience sexual attraction until a strong romantic or emotional connection is formed with another individual.
Femme– n.; adj.- someone who identifies themselves as feminine, whether it be physically, mentally, or emotionally.
The important factor to remember is that we are all human. Regardless of personal views, every person should have their respective titles acknowledged and respected.
