Louis On Air Posted June 23, 2016 Share Posted June 23, 2016 So first a bit of backstory: I've been thinking of ideas for a series on YouTube called 'How to fix.../How to not ripoff...' and one idea was 'How to fix LGBT+ online visibility' after seeing comments of people assuming that the 20,000 genders on Tumblr are how LGBT+ people think. Anyway I came up with a 3-tier system for categorising all these terms (for now only identities like aromantic and not other concepts like amatonormativity and squish) which I'm only conceiving to aid LGBT+ education by breaking down all the identities into bitesized chunks (basically you can say "there are a lot of terms yes... but you only really need to grasp tier 1". I might drop Tier 3 but not if it proves a useful divider. This isn't gonna be perfect but is it ok? Sexuality Tier 1- Simple Preference -Heterosexual (opposite gender) -Homosexual (same gender) -Bisexual (male and female) -Pansexual (all genders) -Asexual (no attraction) -Gynosexual (female) -Androsexual (male) -Ceterosexual (non-binary) Tier 2- Detailed Tier 1 & Umbrella Terms -Demisexual -Gray-asexual -Autosexual -Bi-curious etc... Tier 3- Incredibly Particular/Combination -Autoandrosexual -Demipansexual -Homozoosexual etc... Romanticism Tier 1- Simple Preference -Heteroromantic -Homoromantic -Biromantic -Panromantic -Aromantic -Gynoromantic -Androromantic -Ceteroromantic Tier 2- Detailed Tier 1 & Umbrella Terms -Demiromantic -Gray-aromantic -Lithromantic -Arospec -Quoiromantic etc... Tier 3- Incredibly Particular/Combination -Gyneceteroromantic -Homolithromantic -Romantic Automobilophilia etc... Gender Tier 1- Simple Preference -Female -Male -Transgender -Agender -Non-binary -Genderfluid -Intersex Tier 2- Detailed Tier 1 -Demigirl -Demiboy -Genderflux -AFAB -AMAB etc... Tier 3- Incredibly Particular/Combination -Demitransmasculineflux -Non-Binary Male Presenting -Intersex-Genderflux etc... Obviously it doesn't matter which tier holds a label of yours, but if people knew the more distinct labels before getting into more detail, maybe people would be more willing to understand those more particular terms if they know where they come from.
