RE: LGBQTA+ Information Board
Quick corrections - it's "transgender people," not "transgenders" (and just as a side note, also never "transgendered.") Transgender and its abbreviation "trans" are adjectives!

Bisexual people have an attraction to multiple genders. Some define it as attraction to two or more genders. Since nonbinary people exist, "both genders" isn't really an accurate statement, habitual as it may be!

And some nonbinary people do have a gender or genders! Nonbinary is an umbrella term for any gender that isn't male or female. The word for someone with no gender is "agender," which (I believe) is one example of a nonbinary identity. Some nonbinary people identify as just "nonbinary," while other nonbinary people have identities like "agender" or "genderfluid" (to name a couple that come to mind), all of which don't fall solidly at one end or another of the gender spectrum.

Thanks for putting this memo together, I think it's sweet, if off topic. You said to add information if we like, so there's me doing my best! I'm not any kind of expert ftr. GLAAD is a good source for anyone who wants to learn more than just a memo on a roleplaying forum.

(Also, this might belong better on the General Discussion board, but I don't know how to move memos!)

You can't move memos, only mods have that power (and we all know the mod situation with PARP) - your best bet would be to post a new one and either delete this one or keep it but edit it to point to the new one for further discussion.

(also thank you for your corrections, why-am-i-here, really well-worded)

Ah, that's right. Thank you, Alienoid! Yeah no I'm not gonna cause a fuss about moving it, we can survive without mods and understand it's not gonna be perfect until everything actually gets settled.
