First of all if I want any fucking advice from therapists I’ll rattle their cage.
I look at therapists the way I look at any sort of religious true believers, some are benevolent, some are malevolent and most simply have nothing to offer.
“Therapy” is a new age version of religion. It tells people that social oppression is something one can deal with internally instead of rising up and taking action against the oppressing factors. They administer drugs to keep people quiet and submissive to oppressive systems.
The head line: ‘Gender And Sexual Diversities,’ Or GSD, Should Replace ‘LGBT,’ Say London Therapists, was on Huffington Post.
While transsexual/transgender seem like they should be natural allies due to our all being lumped together as queer by the nasty right wing religious shits the reality remains gay and lesbian are about who people have sexual relationships with while TS/TG are about what sex/gender people are. TS/TG people can be straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual etc.
But wait folks the suggestion of these therapists gets worse. While LGBT people are trying to normalize our existences so we can get marriage equality and employment non-discrimination measures these useless fucks want to saddle us with swingers and other groups that “don’t fit the mainstream”
First of all most LGBT people are pretty damned mainstream. We live all over the place and work typical crappy jobs in the New World Order, have to deal with the disappearing middle class and student loans. All the same crap as our straight neighbors. We aren’t a thrillingly transgressive subculture anymore.
I also love how they plug their services in this suggestion.
To be or not to be
To enter therapy and continue to be oppressed by not only the shitty system but therapist bills
Or to take up arms against the shitty system and thereby liberate myself and others from its oppression
Aye there is the rub.
Could “LGBT” one day become “GSD”? A London-based advocacy group certainly hopes so.
Pink Therapy director Dominic Davies and fellow therapist Pamela Gawler-Wright suggested GSD, or “Gender and Sexual Diversities,” as a more inclusive community term in a new video posted on the group’s Facebook page.
In the clip, Davies noted that the term LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) still excluded “a whole batch of people who didn’t feel able to go to mainstream counseling organizations and also wouldn’t necessarily be welcome at LGBT counseling organizations,” including asexual people and those in otherwise non-traditional relationships, such as swingers.
Added Gawler-Wright: “Now we’re allowing more of a spectrum…people need wider language, people need better language to have that conversation … We exist at this time in a different way of thinking collectively and inclusively.”
