  Sometimes, I worry that as a man who has a binary gender identity, I have no right to speak in queer spaces! Obviously being a guy without any shades of genderqueeritude doesn't make me not queer, but I also feel like with the state of rhetoric in the community being what it is, my input is unneeded and probably wrong.

I don't normally like to talk about this, especially not in the "let me explain all of my labels and oppressions to you" sense, but I guess I want to put thoughts out. I'm not sure that as an FTM guy who is functionally bisexual I actually have any right to have a voice or share my opinions. Since I'm a dude, my identity is binary, and I won't lie when I say that I'm functionally bisexual because I've never met a genderqueer person that I'd want to be in a relationship with. This probably makes me a Bad member of the Community.

Am I right in this assumption? Dreamwidth, tell me your thoughts. Is someone like me better off not getting involved or speaking in queer spaces?

...I don't get it, you identify as TWO of the letters of LGBTQ just in this post.

and I dunno, I've seen enough of ASEXUAL IS NOT QUEER GTFO to be like well excuse me for caring. If it's the kind of space where you need QueerCredentials then honestly it's probably not even worth your time, but I don't think any reasonably person could question your right to be there.

Weh, I know. I guess it's worrying me that all of my peculiarities are in the LGBTQ regions and nowhere else.

hahahahaha, i like your reasoning. kind of... yeah, if you need THIS MANY OPPRESSION CREDS to count, it's not worth bothering because it's going to be a horrible circlejerk.
