Questions to avoid

Every minority community has questions that are often asked. In the Queer community, the questions to avoid asking are: who are you sleeping with? (this can be an unintentional effect of asking “are you partners?”) and, what is in your pants? (this can be couched in questions such as “are you a man or a woman?”). It’s okay to ask anyone what their pronouns are! It’s also okay, if you overhear these questions being asked, to jump in and remind those asking that this is not a polite question.
