Freaks are people too. →
[More:]Do you think that "people who just don't fit in" are worthy of the same kind of systematic protection that lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transsexuals are demanding (and, increasingly, receiving)?
I call these people "freaks" and it seems to me that they fall between the cracks of legal protections. I know people who are just idiosyncratic, eccentric, harmlessly nuts, outlandish, off-kilter and out-of-step with the rest of society. Yet because their difference is sui generis, and not reducible to sexual preference or gender, they received no systematic protection.
But in my view, freaks' claim to protection is just as compelling as those who seek it based on sexuality or gender difference.
So does it make sense to you to change LGBT to LGBTF (adding freaks)?
I would like to live in a world where "freak" is an identity that one could proudly proclaim like gay or lesbian, and receive respect, recognition, and protection based upon your freakhood.
