They're very authoritarian. The homophobia and horseshoe sexism is "shut up lesbo I know what's good for you!"

It's why we need to grow the LGB drop the T movement, so we don't have to rely on any outsiders. I just applied (and was accepted) to volunteer at an LGBT organization to help the LGBs in my area, and to hopefully passively change minds. Find some fence sitters and help steer them away from the homophobic sexists gendie stuff. See how it goes.

What can I do as a straight ally?

So far, I've been telling people in real life what is going on.

Most straights don't realize how crazy it is, unless they're online.

So flipping AWFUL!

I thought you were bi because of the symbol next to your name so I was confused for a bit lol. I guess keep doing what you're doing, spread the word, and if you're able support any LGB Alliance group. Thanks for your allyship! I not used to straight people caring unless they're related to a LGB person

Good luck!! Stay safe. You might find some awesome people there, but also might find some people who are very hostile to same-sex attracted people...

Right now we're doing everything through zoom calls, so at least it's not in person for now. My first interview the guy asked for my pronouns, not the worse thing, but it gives me a peak on what'll be like. Who knows, maybe it won't be so bad, best to stay optimistic.
