How would you feel about GTF being populated with straights

A forum for respectful discussion & exchange of views on news, current affairs & thought-provoking topics; please read and be aware of the guidelines prior to posting.

Forum rules

Welcome to the News, Current Affairs & Debate subforum.

This forum is the place for intellectual discussions relating to news, current affairs, or philosophical & scientific debates. There are some guidelines that apply specifically to posts in this forum, of which you will be expected to have made yourself aware before participating. They are as follows:

  • Intellectually stimulating topics only. If you can't have a deep discussion about something, it does not belong here.
  • If you're going to post, have something to say. When you make a new thread, write the initial post in a way that provides an introduction to the topic and invites further discussion. You could tell us how you feel and why, but always aim for constructive responses that further a discussion about the ideas involved, rather than a simple list of people's views. (Instead of asking "Are you a vegetarian?", discuss some of the arguments involved.) This guideline likewise applies for responses to topics.
  • Write using good English. That means full sentences with proper capitalisation, punctuation, spelling and grammar. No one is perfect, though; this is not an invitation to criticise others for minor mistakes.
  • Be nice. This is a forum for rational discourse, not flame wars. No one is always right. Be respectful of other people's views and accept that we are all entitled to our own.

These guidelines will be enforced by the moderators based on their best judgement, and anyone who does not take them seriously will lose the privilege of posting here. Spammers will be banned from the entire forum.

How would you feel about GTF being populated with straights

How would you feel and what would you think of this forum if lots of straight cisgendered people started signing up
like if it just filled up one day with a large crew
would you hate it?
love it?
would you feel like we'd lose our community?
I want to hear your thoughts on it

I know we have had some straight cisgendered people before but it was more of a rare thing I think.


I wouldn't mind at all if we got a lot of new members that were straight. I don't mean converting the forum to a place for both either. This would remain a gay forum and the topics and stuff would not change to cater to them. They would be on our turf as allies pretty much. But they would be allowed to make straight threads about girls or guys.

What would they even do here beyond comb the homo wastes in search of measly scraps of hetero buried deep within the debris?

I guess is(being rebranded?) a LGBT forum and there's straight people that count under that banner, they're perfectly welcome here regardless

There have been straight members here, who are a part of the LGBTQ+ community.

However I don't think that's the demographic you're talking about, Non-queer straights have every other space possible to discuss their problems, they don't need an explicit invitation to join the online equivalent of a safe space.

Yes, interaction with the wider community at large is important, for a variety of reasons. So many homophobes pick up their games as soon as they realise their hate is personal to someone they know. This, however, is not the place for that. Allies are important but damn girl don't go seeking to water this place down, they don't understand our issues on a relatable level.

If straight people feel Queer that's fine they just have to remember that the forum's here for you peeps, not them.
Still this is a forum for gender & sexuality and while those topics are related they're not the same. So sometimes you meet straight trans or enby peeps, alty kids, or even people who're just curious about what's going on with us. Y'know when I think about it there are so many queer kids who are worried about how normative people will treat them and well, hearing it from those people might be heartening.

At the same time though, some allies are just idiots who want a sticker.

They'd be sort of coming onto the gayest website this side of the solar system. I don't think it'd be that big of a problem unless it was like hundreds of them all joining at once (though this is unlikely). However, if the straights did join, they'd have to remember that this is a site for LGBT so they'd need to accept that and respect it.

GTF. Gay Teen Forum.

I can at least maybe come to understand a trans person here maybe.

But if it gets flooded with non LGBT people, then bye because I'm gone.

You can at least maybe come to understand a trans person here??

You're aware there have been many, right? This isn't just a place for gay males, you have to be aware of that surely.

Yes I do know that, I've been here almost as long as you. :tea:

gay and trans are two separate things, you have to be aware of that surely.
