Transcript of LGBTQIA Education

LGBTQIA Education
Common Sexualities
Heterosexuality
A sexual attraction to (or sexual relations with) persons of the opposite sex.
Pertains to female/male relationships
0 to 1 on the Kinsey scale
Homosexuality
A sexual attraction to (or sexual relations with) persons of the same sex.
AKA lesbians and gays
4 to 6 on the Kinsey scale
Out of 50 states, only 17 allow homosexual marriage
In 29 states, you can get fired for being homosexual
Bisexuality
A sexual attraction to (or sexual relations with) persons of the same sex and other genders.
This usually pertains to a person attracted to men and women (though not always the case)
It is a 3 to 5 on the Kinsey scale
Despite personal preferences, bisexuals are still attracted to both the same and opposite gender/sex
Other Orientations
Pansexuality
A sexual attraction to all genders and sexes.
AKA omnisexual
Represented on the Kinsey scale as an F (not able to be identified)
Includes attraction to all genders (different from bisexuality which excludes some).
Asexuality
A person who does not experience a sexual attraction regardless of gender or sex
Represented as an X on the Kinsey scale
Asexuality is a gradient identity with exceptions.
Grey asexuals have exceptions to their lack of sexual attration
Aromantic is the lack of romantic attraction
Asexuals can still appreciate the aesthetic properties of people
**Some asexuals may choose to have sex for reproduction, pleasure, and/or to please their partners**
Demisexuality
A person who does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with someone
Represented as an F on the Kinsey scale
Demisexuals are not choosing to abstain; they simply lack sexual attraction until a close relationship is formed. It doesn't mean that sexual attraction without emotional connection is required for a complete demisexuality.
Identities That Don't Pertain to Sexuality
Trans*
Transgender: A person whose self-identity does not conform to their assigned sex.
Transexual: A person whose self-identity does not conform to their assigned sex and has undergone a sex operation/treatment
M2F- Male to female transition
F2M- Female to male transition
The asterisk in Trans* is more appropriate to use because it includes all of those under the Trans* umbrella (transgender, transexual, non-binary,etc)
Genderqueer
A person whose gender identity is non-binary
Includes:
Genderfluid: fluctuating gender identity
Agender: no gender identity
Bi/tri/pangender: identity with more than one gender
Third gender: identify as neither man nor woman. The "third" is meant to be interpreted as meaning "other"
Intersex
The condition of being intermediate between male and female. Any condition in which a person's sexual anatomy doesn't fit typical definitions of male or female.
Some examples include those with XXY chromosomes, genitalia that doesn't develop normally, etc.
Germany and some other nations have adopted "X" as a valid third category besides "M" (male) and "F" (female) on identification documents. This option doesn't just apply those who are intersex.
Acceptance, Tolerance, Respect, and Education
Relationships
Monogamous- having one partner
Polygamous- having more than one partner
**All relationships as long as they're healthy should be respected**
Respect
Respect whatever a person identifies as
Do not out anyone who confides in you
Use proper pronouns with those who ask you to
Respect your body as well as everyone's.
Practice safe sex and healthy relationships
Respect communities, even if you do not belong with them
Respect those who struggled and walked before you
Respect boundaries
Education
Do not spread incorrect information (get educated before you try to educate anyone else!)
Do not respond to ignorance with anger and malice. Education and kindness are important steps to acceptance.
In Conclusion
We have many terms which we may choose to or not to use to identify ourselves as.
We must respect both ourselves and others
Most importantly: Don't hate, educate!
