We Need a Logo

Say what you want about the LGBT community, but they're organized and have good marketing.

The other side doesn't even have a name. Just homophobes or anti-LGBT. Well that's not gonna fly anymore. I've been using a term for a while now, I call myself a Gender Normalist. To be hip, you can call yourself a G-Norm. It means that, though there are whole ranges of masculinity and femininity in the human race, ultimately a man is supposed to be a man and a woman a woman. Also, of course, a man and a woman belong together or stay single, no homosexuality. No, this does not mean a man can't be into fashion and a girl into trucks. This does not appoint a housekeeper and a bread-winner. But I can tell you who should naturally have softer features and play to those strengths, and who shouldn't train themselves to have a sexy, sassy lisp. There are norms. A normal is a straight line going from the origin to a curve and making a right angle to the skewed tangent. Normalization is conforming and aligning to the line.

It's very logical, mathematical, and symbolic. No religion is required. If you want to have some in there, that's fine, but it is not the basis of the movement. That causes division between atheists and Christians with similar views, and freakshows like Westboro pop up, derailing the whole thing.

So I made a logo. I'm open to others, but something had to be done. The LGBT community has a slew of them: the upside down triangle, the equal sign, and they even stole the freaking rainbow from graphic designers everywhere.

So next time there's some made up holiday and you're supposed to post a picture to your facebook profile, try this one. When someone asks, talk about the movement to address and treat a rampant personality disorder that is destroying society. It's a legitimate position to take, and cannot be silenced. Maybe we need a tagline. Here's an idea: "I'm not so concerned about gay rights, but is anyone addressing all of the gay wrongs?"

Keep your head up, and maybe we can swing this thing.
