Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

Your orientation sounds like it might be pansexual or panromantic? And your gender identity like demiwoman/female of center? But you don't have to label yourself if you don't want to. Maybe generic terms like just saying queer and non-binary work for you?

Yeah, in the last 10 or so years bisexual/biromantic has been redefined to mean "attracted to 2 or more genders" or "attracted to my own and other genders" to include attraction to nonbinary people. There were very few bi people who were only attracted to men and women anyways (I...

"Umbrage," most certainly.

Also "perfunctory"

These are very nice-sounding words.

Though I keep forgetting what they mean.

And I want to misspell umbrage as umbridge.

German schon is used in sentences like Setz dich schon mal ins Auto - Go already sit in the car, but it does not indicate impatience, rather you go ahead, I will follow in some minutes. To express impatience we use endlich - finally! Setz dich endlich ins Auto - Go sit in the car already/finally!
