A new video from The Social Renaissance Project, is shining a spotlight on some of the cliché (and oftentimes offensive) questions and comments we – as queer women – get asked all the time.
Talking to The Huffington Post, the project’s Director, Joshua Walker, explained the meaning behind the project;
I want people to take away the fact that you can’t just say things without thinking and without understanding that your words have power; in good ways and bad ways. Assuming that someone automatically fits into a stereotype simply because of what they identify with is doing a disservice to you and to that person. We also want people to understand and come to appreciate the diversity within the LGBT community. We really want people to watch this and think, wow, I really hope I don’t say things like this to the lesbians in my life.”
