I was having a chat with a friend.

And it was about Caitlyn Jenner, like most of the population, it was about her recent comment to the lovely Ellen.

Of course, I have to state, I do not agree with her statement, and I think it’s terrible, but what interested me was my friends reaction which was ‘But she’s part of LGBT, she has to accept it’ and I thought, God I wish that was true.

I understand why she thought that, like, I do get it, but sometimes I feel it couldn’t be further than the truth if we tried.

Being asexual, I have witnessed this, other members of the LGBTQA+ community not accepting my sexuality as valid which really sucks, because I accept theirs, but unfortunately it doesn’t work like that. It intrigues, and I think saddens me at the same time, because how can someone who’s gone through being different and coming out, shun someone else for being different and coming out. It’s as hard for both people, whether they are gay, bisexual, trans*, asexual, pansexual, or whatever they may be.

We don’t need to be hating on each other, we need to be supporting, but I also think we’re a long way, away from that.
