while i appreciate the difference between policy and speeches, its nice to see at least the conversation changing towards something more logical. despite this, the liberal party isn't as different as it seems from the conservatives



edit: i guess there are different versions of this macro, i just grabbed the first one. i intended it to read: JT explains how he can march in the pride parade and sell 15$billion of weapons to a dictatorship that beheads gay people

No Capt I can't explain the BLM thinking this was a good move. I've been waiting for an explanation myself...

Gonna try to not go on a rant here since I have limited time, but it blows my mind that they would be against the community outreach programs the Toronto police have in place... like, what problem could they possibly have with cooperation between a traditionally disenfranchised group getting support from the police?!?!? Ugh, it confounds me.

And the Toronto police have many proud LGBT officers, and theyre supposed to be banned?

A strong misstep BLM.

BLM was a rent seeking group from day 1.

They want money, not anything that will actually help black people as a whole.

BLMTO have merit, which makes their sit-in all the more complex and filled with opposing views. The merit is rooted in the historical implications of pride, and arrests of coloured LGBQIT members in the past, and of the commercialized/corporate nature of pride organization. The BLM float was downsized, while other corporatized groups saw increases in float sizes, and since BLMTO were considered honoured guests it is puzzling that they saw less representation than past years. With that said, I think that the group took a symbolic gesture (banning of police floats) a little too far in lieu of political opportunism. I believe that a similar statement could have been made that was more inclusive of the coloured LGBQIT members in the police force. One that fostered dialogue before changes.

Not that it is necessarily meaningful, but the TO police cheif Mark Saunders is of colour.

The most problematic aspect of the police-float ban is the same logic that makes arresting people of colour without reasonable grounds problematic: the lumping of individuals into a group.

That being said, it is important to understand how deep the fear associated with the institution of police, and folks of colour runs. I'm not really in the proper position to speak, as a white person, but I think that being aware of the struggles that other people face is incredibly imperative, and why I think that listening is still incredibly important.

"Intersex: A person whose sexual anatomy or chromosomes do not fit with the traditional markers of "female" and "male." For example: people born with both "female" and "male" anatomy (penis, testicles, vagina, uterus); people born with XXY. "

I think evolving terms is a good thing, no? Dictionaries do it every year.

Honestly at this point it should just be called umbrella or rainbow or something and have a general acceptance policy of "if you hate, you're out". The acronyms are great for getting people to ask questions like you just did, but it also takes away in that it is something that has to constantly be explained, and actually hurts the cause in that it doesn't follow the credo of "The easiest way to lose a sale is to have to explain what the product is.".

LGBT, LGBTQ, LGBTQA, TBLG: These acronyms refer to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, and Asexual or Ally. Although all of the different identities within “LGBT” are often lumped together (and share sexism as a common root of oppression), there are specific needs and concerns related to each individual identity.

Asexual: A person who generally does not feel sexual attraction or desire to any group of people. Asexuality is not the same as celibacy.

Ally: Typically any non-LGBT person who supports and stands up for the rights of LGBT people, though LGBT people can be allies, such as a lesbian who is an ally to a transgender person.

Biphobia: Aversion toward bisexuality and bisexual people as a social group or as individuals. People of any sexual orientation can experience such feelings of aversion. Biphobia is a source of discrimination against bisexuals, and may be based on negative bisexual stereotypes or irrational fear.

Bisexual: A person who is attracted to both people of their own gender and another gender. Also called “bi”.

Cisgender: Types of gender identity where an individual's experience of their own gender matches the sex they were assigned at birth.

Coming Out: The process of acknowledging one’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity to other people. For most LGBT people this is a life-long process.

Gay: A person who is attracted primarily to members of the same sex. Although it can be used for any sex (e.g. gay man, gay woman, gay person), “lesbian” is sometimes the preferred term for women who are attracted to women.

Gender expression: A term which refers to the ways in which we each manifest masculinity or femininity. It is usually an extension of our “gender identity,” our innate sense of being male, female, etc. Each of us expresses a particular gender every day – by the way we style our hair, select our clothing, or even the way we stand. Our appearance, speech, behavior, movement, and other factors signal that we feel – and wish to be understood – as masculine or feminine, or as a man or a woman.

Gender identity: The sense of “being” male, female, genderqueer, agender, etc. For some people, gender identity is in accord with physical anatomy. For transgender people, gender identity may differ from physical anatomy or expected social roles. It is important to note that gender identity, biological sex, and sexual orientation are separate and that you cannot assume how someone identifies in one category based on how they identify in another category.

Genderqueer: A term which refers to individuals or groups who “queer” or problematize the hegemonic notions of sex, gender and desire in a given society. Genderqueer people possess identities which fall outside of the widely accepted sexual binary (i.e. "men" and "women"). Genderqueer may also refer to people who identify as both transgendered AND queer, i.e. individuals who challenge both gender and sexuality regimes and see gender identity and sexual orientation as overlapping and interconnected.

Heterosexual: A person who is only attracted to members of the opposite sex. Also called “straight."

Homophobia: A range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). It can be expressed as antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, or hatred, may be based on irrational fear, and is sometimes related to religious beliefs.

Homosexual: A clinical term for people who are attracted to members of the same sex. Some people find this term offensive.

Intersex: A person whose sexual anatomy or chromosomes do not fit with the traditional markers of "female" and "male." For example: people born with both "female" and "male" anatomy (penis, testicles, vagina, uterus); people born with XXY.

In the closet: Describes a person who keeps their sexual orientation or gender identity a secret from some or all people.

Lesbian: A woman who is primarily attracted to other women.

Queer: 1) An umbrella term sometimes used by LGBTQA people to refer to the entire LGBT community. 2) An alternative that some people use to "queer" the idea of the labels and categories such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, etc. Similar to the concept of genderqueer. It is important to note that the word queer is an in-group term, and a word that can be considered offensive to some people, depending on their generation, geographic location, and relationship with the word.

Questioning: For some, the process of exploring and discovering one's own sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Pansexual: A person who experiences sexual, romantic, physical, and/or spiritual attraction for members of all gender identities/expressions, not just people who fit into the standard gender binary (i.e. men and women).

Sexual orientation: The type of sexual, romantic, and/or physical attraction someone feels toward others. Often labeled based on the gender identity/expression of the person and who they are attracted to. Common labels: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, etc.

Transgender: This term has many definitions. It is frequently used as an umbrella term to refer to all people who do not identify with their assigned gender at birth or the binary gender system. This includes transsexuals, cross-dressers, genderqueer, drag kings, drag queens, two-spirit people, and others. Some transgender people feel they exist not within one of the two standard gender categories, but rather somewhere between, beyond, or outside of those two genders.

Transphobia: The fear or hatred of transgender people or gender non-conforming behavior. Like biphobia, transphobia can also exist among lesbian, gay, and bisexual people as well as among heterosexual people.

Transsexual: A person whose gender identity is different from their biological sex, who may undergo medical treatments to change their biological sex, often times to align it with their gender identity, or they may live their lives as another sex.
