Calling it a religion would imply that it has some sort of structure.

How about "cult"?

Scientology still has an agreed upon structured worldview lol. Queers are just, idk, they don't want to have any meaning or structure, because that wouldn't make them special anymore. It's why there is so many cancelling in their community, they have no agreed upon language, meaning, or anything. If words have no meaning, then they cannot communicate information clearly. They are essentially having several different conversations with each other. They don't talk to each other, they talk past each other.

So paradoxically: they thought this would make everyone more accepting and equal, but now everything and anything is and can be hateful and problematic. Just like anything and everything is or can be valid. It's all on equal footing. Everything is/can be someone's identity, and everything is/can be problematic. Everything is valid, everything is problematic.

Look at gender. Gender has no real meaning in the queer community. It can be clothes, pronouns, or hair. So because there is no meaning a queer that views gender as performative is being bigoted to a large portion of queers that views it as psychological, but the offended's view of gender could also be problematic. Since there is no meaning everything is equally as hateful and problematic as a cis-hets bigotry. Then cancelling starts. Then it devolves into them agreeing everyone is valid, and it'll start all over again. Everyone gets more paranoid. A house divided against itself cannot stand.

Giving me war flashbacks to my teenage years as a Tumblrina, painfully accurate.
