Lifestylism meaning anti-queerness is a pattern. You're just the one perpetuating it.

Do you have any examples you would like to share? I've never seen this used before and am new to understanding it.

This is not exactly what you're asking for, but looking at this passage from Social Anarchism or Lifestyle Anarchism, it's not hard to see how this happens:

Consciously or not, many lifestyle anarchists articulate Michel Foucault’s approach of ‘personal insurrection’ rather than social revolution, premised as it is on an ambiguous and cosmic critique of power as such rather than on a demand for the institutionalized empowerment of the oppressed in popular assemblies, councils, and/or confederations.

translation: join the vanguard or STFU

Thank you for the translation. I swear my eyes started to bleed at the end of that sentence! hahaha

Sorry, I don't keep track of everything a transphobic person says to me. Asking me to show proof of people mistreating me before my words can mean anything is strange.

Was honestly curious about what that would look like. Thanks for explaining to me off-thread.

Lifestylism is literally anything that doesn't follow the party line. Being gay or being trans is viewed as a lifestyle by bigoted people, just like Dark over here.
