Also, to the people who found this on Tumblr (seems to be a ton, thanks to a reblog from "multisexual" =D), please remember that I am a part of the community (MtF) and make mistakes, and I appreciate you all pointing your opinions out to me. I'm doing my best to make this the best guide possible =3

wait, asexual means you are not interested in having SEXUAL relationships with anyone? like having relationship but not interested of having "it"?

Exactly. Asexuality means you have no sexual interest, but you can still have sex. And some asexuals still do "it" to please their partner. -asexual-

oh, but how would you call someone who is interested on the opposite gender but is asexual (basically wants a hetero relationship but like you said, has no sexual interest)?

There's a difference between romantic and sexual interest. So someone who is hetero would be heteromantic and asexual.

but those are nonbinary! it is not girl or boy. it is cat, cold, swamp, candy, sparkles, 9 things, magick!
I bashed them once on a facebook page, and here and someone told me to not to invalidate a gender.
but then i acted like they were real and also called transphobic.

nonbinary genders are bigender, agender, genderfluid, pangender, and androgyne. anything other than that, such as "glittergender" and shit like that isnt real.
while we all do feel different about our genders, theres no need to make a gender for every different feeling.
an example, some people may feel like their gender is absolutely nothing, just a void. and thats ok! whats not okay is that they feel the need to make a gender for something that can literally be described as agender.
do you catch my drift? i hope this makes sense.
but yeah, i know. theyre treated as real genders even though they were made by some teen online. its super annoying.

i encounterd someone on fb who uses "arsgoegender" because they don't identify as otherkin, so my hunch I guess is right.

I got banned from like, 20 gender related pages on facebook asking about those, what people think, if they are offended, or to push the limmits of "what do you mean when you say you are sad that people tell you your gender isn't real? are you something like glitter or wafflegender?", "those aren't tumblr genders, my gender is real, those are real valid genders, lots of cultures go beyond a binary or have a 3rd or 4th gender!" making me go "oh, so rainstorms is a gender to which tribe rainforest dwelling people?"

 and "oh non binary, that means like these people say, liking cute things is a gender right?" Pride flags here banned me for telling them that the fb trans community finds them highly offensive, and 30 pages banned me for bringing it up.   some people let it go, when I say they are fake.

Related to polyamoury, Polyplatonic refers to an individual who is capable of having quasi feelings for more than one individual and would be able to have a quasi relationship with more than one individual.

Here’s what the flag colours mean:

Blue: To resemble the polyamoury flag but be easier on the eyes

Light Green: The opposite of red which is a romantic colour

Grey: To resemble the black on the polyamoury flag

Purple pi symbol: The opposite of the yellow pi symbol and also to contrast the green

that would be polyqueerplatonic?

platonic is non sexual bonds.  so someone is that special that they can equaly be friends with everyone? I always did find it nonsense that someone could have 40 best friends.  sometimes one best best friend is a thing and the other 12 friends are lesser on the scale.

nobody has 30 bestist best friends. :P

Slight correction for you next update: The trans flag isn't just used by MtF/FtM, it's used by many different types of transgender.
Example: I am genderfluid, but I use this flag to represent myself.

Why not just use the one that stands for everyone and that everyone knows, instead of creating sub-division?

Because asexual people, bisexual people and transgender people have been marginalized by the LGBT movement a lot and are not very visible to the mainstream. Everyone knows what a gay person is- though the "bear" flag demonstrates that they *don't* know a gay person can be non-feminine in presentation.

I am quite sure that I'm straight, but I do support all the other flags.

*To Everyone who reads/views the Guide*

Who cares what other, closed-minded people think?  If they can't accept certain people for who they are, why should those idiots matter?  #%@!* them!

Love is love.
Lust is lust.
Beauty is beauty.  Gender shouldn't be a relevant factor.

Be proud of who you are.  The opinions of others shouldn't stop you from being yourself.  Stand strong and walk with pride;  The Great Mother made you what you are, and She loves us all equally.

:salute:

That argument makes no sense. Interracial couples get hate for being interracial, not for being straight. Imagine what LBGT+ interracial couple get. Last time someone was murdered bor bein LGBT+, are you kidding me? I don't know, Mark Carson for example?
Heterophobia doesn't exist. That doesn't mean straight people lives are always awesome, that means we have one less problem to deal with. No one was ever bullied, killed or abused just for being straight, no one.

you're just kinda gearing toward shit that doesn't have to do w/ LGBTQAIP+ ok lmao. straight ppl will never be oppressed for being straight so they honestly don't matter in the group. Honestly. Straight ppl will honestly just pack their bags and give themselves a pat on the back once gay marriage is "legal" and then ignore everything else that's wrong with this fucking nation. like, idk, it being legal to use the "trans ppl scare me" excuse when someone straight up MURDERS A TRANS PERSON. so many TWOC hav been murdered w/ that excuse in mind so honestly fuck yourself and die thanks :)
