Anonymous said: what's your opinion on GSA's, like in schools? the sixth form im going to now has one and i don't know whether to get involved or not. i get that they're trying to support LGBT students but the name really puts me off, because i'm bi, and because they include straight allies.
It varies from school to school, some GSA’s despite the name are actually really inclusive and include allies in the way you are supposed to, which is to educate them to be supportive and go into heterosexist and cissexist spaces to make them safe for LGBTQ people.
However, some can be the opposite, so I’d ask around to see how yours operates and whether it is worth your time getting involved, if you hear and see good things I’d definitely give it a go and maybe give them advice on being more inclusive of bisexual students and getting more outreach in general.
Organisations like this, when run well, I think are essential to young MOGAI people.
My schools GSA is actually called gender, sexuality alliance instead of gay straight alliance
I like that, you’ve got total inclusivity of trans people and multisexuals and you still have enough openess of allies and closeted people to join, more groups should do that.
the government should tax single straight men
that fee when no gf
