Selena Gomez & The Scene // Hit The Lights
I hear plenty of Gay and Bisexual men who say they’re not a part of the “Scene”, the larger LGBT community. Initially I believed these people were just being ignorant and self-hating but now I realize it’s more complicated than that. The heterosexual community has always been confused about the differences between sexuality (gay, lesbian, and bisexual) and gender identity (transsexual, transgender, non-binary). For the most part they’ve lumped them all together and from necessity, these different communities have come together for survival.
However, as much as these two communities overlap they’re also separate. They’re are men and women who are attracted to the same gender but take on traditional gender roles (masculinity and femininity) just like there are people who identify to gender roles opposite to what they’re born as but their sexuality could be identified as straight. Both communities are just as similar as they are different. United by going against what’s considered mainstream, divided by the their respective identities.
In the homo/bisexual male community, when men say they’re not part of the “scene” it means while they’re comfortable with identifying as gay or bisexual, they’re not comfortable being considered the same as men with feminine traits or others who identify as other genders or no gender at all. The LGBT community as a whole typically revolves around sexual and gender identify and there’s a subsection that wishes it would just focus strictly on sexual identity.
There are several reasons for this. Some believe the homosexual community would be more accepted by the Straight community if they focused exclusively on sexuality and conformed to gender traits and norms. Others have the same prejudices towards the trans community as their straight counterparts (similar to how racism in the LGBT community is as common in the Straight community).
I have no problem uniting the Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual community with the Trans community. Many of are problems overlap together. At the same time think the world could also benefit with learning the difference between sexuality and gender identity. I’m a gay man, attracted to men, with masculine traits. That doesn’t mean I identify as a woman or want to dress in clothes outside of my chosen gender. Many people (especially in the Conservative community) consider it one in the same. For example, I’m attracted to men so I must wish I was a woman which isn’t true for everyone including me.
There should be more attempts at differentiating between homosexuality and trans identity without alienating the latter. Those who want to remain separate from the “scene” may justifiably want to have their own identity separate from the trans community, but they should be careful how to respect those who are different (whether they understand transsexuality or not). Those in the Straight community still have trouble understanding homosexuality even if it may appear to be less radical than the trans community. Both groups are united because they’re lives are considered “other” by the mainstream world, even if homosexuality is slowly becoming more acceptable.

I bet you 50 bucks that Kogami dropped whatever he was doing and ran straight to his car the minute he heard that Akane was being released from prison.
