Agreed. But it does, unfortunately, tear down the real people fighting for equality. And the same could, potentially, be said for the LGBT community (to bring us back on topic); that the wrong people speak up and get confused for the real champions of the cause.This is unfortunate. But just because someone sees something a certain way, it doesn't mean that it's true.
I'm of a mixed mind here. While I definitely respect the rights to be called what you want/are (I would not like being referred to as anything other than female) they also get a little too upset (obviously not all of them) if you don't immediately remember to use the right pronoun. There was all this drama in another fandom and, to this day, one of the actors is hated simply because of a misunderstanding regarding pronouns at a convention photo op.
