OFFICIALLY 1500 USES! I WILL START DOING FLAG DESCRIPTIONS ASAP! They will take a good while so don't expect them to be up too fast... Also there can be tons of different flags for one sexuality! That's just because things change over time, but some people feel more comfortable with earlier flags. I'll just put up the most used flag(s).
THERE IS A LOT IN HERE!!! So please read the whole description before you ask a question or make a suggestions though the suggestions box!
Most of my updates are description updates...
PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!!
This is a safe space for everyone, you can email me at [email protected] (I know it's a silly email I'm a silly person) and I can help you with emotional problems although I don't have anyone I know that can help me with supplies (like binders and such).
Don't bully people in the discussion, but feel free to use it! Please do actually, this would be a great place to support each other!
Someone suggested skoliogender, I already have that in here :D
Okay someone just wasn't actually looking through this because they suggested "pan", that was in the first complete set of words bestie, I don't know if you even used it yet.
I would totally throw a "p" up there for "pan" on the title but then people who have it bookmarked wouldn't be able to come back to it because the link would change. I support pan people though!
If there is randomly two or three "s"s where it looks like there should be one, I'm sorry about that, please notify me! My s key is broken...
There are so many terms in the LGBTQIAP+ world... how do we know what all of them mean? That's what this translator is for :D
I do know my fair share about terminology, as having THE THREE COOLEST FLAGS (color-scheme wise and in my opinion, I'm genderfluid and abro and usually omni) will get you pretty deep in the LGBTQIAP+ community. I'm not saying I know everything! As of now, though, I'm pretty sure it's mostly complete.
You guys there are so many terms I forgot to put up- but don't worry they're all up now :D
I did a quick survey of what other websites have, and let me tell you, this is the best place to get your terms! No one else has such a large scope of terms!
Identifying with two terms is fine! I for one identify as a trans female as well as genderfluid because I feel female so often!
I don't know how imgur works, I tried but I couldn't get an image up... Sorry guys (and others but I consider "guy" a gender-neutral term)!
Really random side note: stop pretending you understand transgender peoples' struggle, it's assumptive and rude. It's like being white and saying you understand racism against POC (people/person of color). You don't, because you aren't a POC.
On that note, straight and cisgender allies, we thank you for your support! I cannot say that enough!
Another thing: stop saying polysexual people of any kind are wrong or confused or can't decide. I have seen someone say that, get out.
Asexual people are not heartless or broken, as well as aromantics, demisexuals, gray aces, etc! It's okay to feel that way!
Trans people, including non-binary people, are not fake. Stop treating them as such! It's just mean!
Don't be mean to genderfluid, genderflux, aceflux, and abrosexuals are not fake or broken or confused or unstable or indecisive! If any of these terms is used against them I will report you!
It's their gender, they get to choose the pronouns! Stop telling them they're wrong if they have a certain preference! On the same matter, people can have more than one pronoun preference! That's totally cool. No matter what gender I am feeling, they is always a fine pronoun for me, although it's usually my secondary preference if I'm feeling male or female. That's just me giving an example by the way, I know you don't actually care...
If I put something that isn't right or there is a different definition, please notify me through the suggestions box. I don't know everything (albeit I know a little more than your average person like I mentioned earlier)!
I know there are some words with meanings outside of the LGBTQIAP+ community, please stop telling me that. I'm not going to put it on there because it doesn't have to do with the theme of the translator.
Please send in terms that don't work! I would love to include all terms, not just the ones I know! Although, I do know more, I just haven't put them up yet. I can't make it all in one day, although I did make a good portion of it just today :D
Keep in mind many of these terms come down to preference, for example people who are non-binary may feel this way because they feel both male and female, but the term bigender or polygender didn't feel like the right match. Or people who are pan have preference but they don't feel the need for using the term omni.
I understand I don't have the term LGBTQIAP+ in there, 1) the + causes translation issues (on either side) and 2) there are so many variations, (like LGBT, LGBT+, LGBTQ, LGBTQ+, LGBTQIA, LGBTQIA+, LGBTQIAP, LGBTQIAPK etc.) it just gets too confusing. But, it basically just means "The overall queer community". Also, many people won't put the "k" on because it means kink, look at the definition for that one to find out why.
If a definition is really, REALLY off, just tell me. It's probably a formatting issue, nothing to worry about!
Stop telling me I did something wrong if I already covered it in the description that I saw it! Obviously keep telling me about other terms I missed, formatting issues, multiple "s"s, etc. but still! It's kind of annoying to have ten suggestions that say the same thing, because they all show up separately so my suggestion box gets filled... a lot...
Bisexual doesn't mean you just like male and female people! Actually, saying that is biphobic! If that's what you feel and you identify as bisexual, great! That doesn't mean all bisexuals are as such.
I used to have a list up here but it's so long it won't fit anymore...
Ever wanted to make a random text generator?
