About the normalization of queer people: we're not normal. Define normal as "typical or expected." The average person is straight and cisgender. Queer people are therefore not normal. Note that normal does NOT mean non-human, or exemplify badness in any way. Sure, a good long-term relationship isn't based solely on sex. But maybe that's not what BlackMalachite is looking for. The man wants to have sex with someone who has a vagina, and that isn't transphobic. Some of you expressed displeasure on Bughouse's views of focusing on the real problems rather than dating. Let me use this metaphor: let's say we use 1 million dollars to help cut down on pollution in the US, which has relatively clear air - clean, but not perfect. We only cut down on the pollution index by less than .1%. Now let's say we spend that money to help with pollution in Beijing. The money would make a massive difference! Similarly, by focusing on people who suffer minor social injustices is silly. Our attention should be on those who are really suffering transphobia.
