    Because heterosexuals were the ones who didnt accept us as normal, pushed us out of society, and persecuted us... Gay bashing still happens, so we formed our own community. Its not about exclusion for the sake of exclusion, it's exclusion for the sake of safety.

    We have OUR spaces and community because you make it clear you dont want us in YOURS.

    Because normal people are not welcome in their fold. Same reason they don't accept pedosexuals. If your sexuality is normal and non-sinful, they want nothing to do with you.

    Because it's about minorities.  Also, intersex and trans are not sexual orientations.

    Because heterosexuals have never had to deal with abuse, rejection, being disowned by family, being discriminated against socially and legally, being denied or fired from employment, being denied or evicted from housing, being denied financial or government services, being harassed, being attacked, or being murdered, simply for being heterosexual.  Heterosexuals don't need an organization or community to fight for their rights or to support them for being heterosexual.  It's basically the same reason there is no NAAWP as a white version of the NAACP.

    They should add "H" for heterosexual women

    Because heterosexual is the majority in most places.

    The LGBT+ community consists of sex and gender minorities.

    Being straight is not a minority.

    That said, we do have trans people in the community who are straight.

    Maybe they're just faking to please their mothers?
