I’m not sure I understand your point, Benny Phi. I spend a lot of time asking straight/cis people to help more. I don’t think that asking them to help less accomplishes anything for us.

One of the biggest challenges the LGBTQ movement faces is apathy from straight/cis people.

I think we can afford a little discomfort if attention is the price to pay for the disruption of apathy.
