coi ro do (Hi, everyone.)
I've recently started learning Lojban and I need some help. One of the goals of Lojban is cultural neutrality, a goal which may prove unattainable. However, it still retains mostly cis and heterosexual concepts despite known bisexual speakers. There have been some proposals but they are conceptually, not to mention grammatically, problematic.
So, I pose several questions to you:
How do you identify, in terms of gender and/or orientation or lack thereof?
What precisely do you mean by that identification?
What are some queer concepts and experiences that you have difficulty describing with "standard" vocabulary?
Would you be willing to help me coin words for Lojban speaking QUILTBAGs?
In the interest of diversity and cultural neutrality, I'd also like to extend and expand this discussion to include feminists, people of color, and any other marginalized peoples.
Does anyone here speak a constructed language? (Lojban, Esperanto, Láadan, Toki Pona, Klingon, et cetera)
Thank you for reading this and helping a Loj-fag out.
Don't make the xkcd joke; every Lojban speaker has already heard it.
