Polyamory should be part of LGBT+

Polyamory is as much of a choice for me as being pan, anyone who thinks otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about and probably should not speak on polyamory.

Some people might whine that it will include straight people, but guess what: they're already here, in the form of straight trans people, not to mention straight ace/aro people (who btw do not deserve to be gatekept out thank you).

@slightlyflightyone I think it's been established ace/aro people already belong there

@Elizafox straight people as part of LGBT+ don't exist because a prerequisite to being straight is there being an opposite gender, and that doesn't work if you're not using legacy binary gender.

@Elizafox @ben I know many trans folk who identify as hetero, so this seems kinda weird to say.

@Elizafox Another reason I preferred GSRM (gender, sexual, and romantic minority) as the go-to label for being inclusive. I don't blame people for having a special place in their heart for LGBT for its history, but it can be a little limited as we come to understand more about sexuality and romanticism.

@Elizafox And if you add *P*olyamory and *A*sexuality, you get

LGBPAT+
