I find it amazing, that when I started to socialize more with the larger queer community in my local campus area, the amount of racism, ableism, and classism that existed. Maybe it was my assumption, that marginalized communities would be much more excepting and tolerant of others' differences, because of a shared pain. But I was proven so wrong. I get the feeling that many of these people, brought their prejudices that already existed in their larger communities, and then brought it into the much smaller queer community.
What do you think?
