Love and Gender’s many options

Love and Gender's many options

             To some who are regretfully not sex positive– a fairly new term for those who embrace and are knowledgeable on sexualities and or sexes- everyone needs to embrace the fact that everyone can choose their own term and sexuality. There may be excessive options provided for such things as gender and sexuality but they are clearly needed for the different types of people who inhabit this planet and overall they should be respected. This is believed for various reasons, the following being the most important; these multiple options not only provide-of course- more options, but they also give students a chance to better express themselves as well as gift others a more appropriate insight as to who/how a particular person is/feels.

               Now, many don’t see how a person’s defined gender or sexuality would concern an outsider with biased opinions. The point being that it truly doesn’t. People have multiple choices as to what they may identify as in the two categories discussed above; in gender, he or she is not limited to only boy-girl choices, but also have the options of being bi-gender or agender– virtually servicing any choice she or he makes. In the sexuality department, someone can be not only straight or gay, but also pan-sexual or bisexual if he or she does desire. The alternatives are practically limitless, which is quite important because it means every person truly has a chance to be themselves through these many colorful expressions.

               In addition, these colorful expressions, phrases and words might help a kid label themselves for the better. What is meant by that is the fact that, once a person knows what he or she is as well as the gender preferences he or she prefers, life may become somewhat easier to handle. There are over 30 different words to describe sexualities and genders with all of their slight variations, this also being helpful because it gives students a list to choose from. For example, if a teen has been having trouble identifying directly what he or she wants to be, the best solution would be to hand them a book or website link that- at most- gives the person a basic ideal of what they may and may not be. Not only would this new ideal of identification be useful in helping that certain child accept her or himself, but it would also allow people close to that person to get a minimal idea as to how that friend or relative struggles daily with identification. The only problem with this kind of plan would be finding an appropriate way to spread such a list to all who need it, accounting for those who may not have internet or supportive, pro-lgbtq+ parents… such a thing has yet to exist

                 In conclusion, maybe someone could get started on a list described above for the bounty of benefits a project as such would provide for the U.S. as a whole, and maybe people could be more acceptive of the terms that others have spent their lives striving to be. Every human being is unique; which begs the question of ‘is it really a bad thing to have terms that account for slightly different individuals and their personal thoughts?’ To have such words as ‘faggot’ and ‘dyke’ in our world, and yet to disapprove of the actual terms that account for these people is quite a sign that the U.S. and other nations similar are a sore-sight on this planet… it would be best if everyone could quit focusing on labels and just live their lives; but, since that is not possible, everyone will just have to make peace with them and take the time to appreciate what has been given. Many have thoughts that lead them to believe that, even if a bit excessive, the amount of options- which are up to 51 by this point- everyone has been given for gender or sexuality are quite astonishing as well as extremely helpful for various reasons. Though this has been dragged out long enough; in conclusion, many feel this way because the multiple options provided by ‘indecisive individuals’ cover all people no matter how they feel, the variety also helping students find themselves. How much more important can these ‘unneeded’ terms be made for one to realize their true worth?
