a group of friends was discussing how to address gender-neutral housing options for a conference. one person’s opinion was to have it, but keep it silently present. because, if he were in that situation, he would feel uncomfortable with “the whole situation,” specifically for the chance of his sexuality as straight being questioned if he got stuck in the gender-neutral housing.
you’re uncomfortable because providing people who typically have less visibility and voice are given a space to feel safe (or hopefully safer than they would without it)? uncomfortable that your privileged status might be challenged and make you feel uncomfortable for a day or so? not a big deal that some people may feel uncomfortable, not to mention unsafe, because their identity is often never recognized or actively illegitimized.
