    Or just couldn't be themselves and desperately needed a label. Like a specimen in a petri dish.

    You don't get the last two? Its the first one I don't get. Asexual means you just aren't interested in sex. Intersex is where people are born with both male and female reproductive parts.

    But how can "Queer" be added, since, from what I've always understood anyway, it was just meant to be a derogatory name for homosexuals?

    I know what the words mean, just not why they suddenly need to be added - "queer" isn't just a derogatory word, it also, literally means "strange" - as in "he's sort of queer (= strange, odd, and so on). That's why it was added in the first place - as a way of including minorities that doesn't really fit into the LGBT-term.

    It should only be LGB, since these are the only sexual orientations (excluding the illegal ones).
    Asexual is a non-orientation, you could also add it to Heterosexual (HA).
    And then I'd combine Transgender with Intersex as it's related to anatomy. (TA).

    Well I know it originally means "strange", and that's how the whole term got started. What I don't understand is the whole "minorities that don't really fit into the LGBT-term." I suppose that is possible, though its hard for me think of what they could be.

    Good points, all around.

    Why do we need to be labelled and homogenised? If it's meant to embrace diversity it fails by making out that we are all the same. Why not just add heterosexuals to it and that big rainbow umbrella could cover the world?

    Let's hope they don't make the same mistakes Dallas TNT did like putting in charge someone who had never watched the series and had strange things they wanted to do like rewriting history, storylines that don't work, and introducing characters who don't belong.

    I would have expected a continuation of the series. Most of the cast are still alive. They could have focused on the grandchildren and begin with Blake's funeral.

    Can't believe the Shapiros are in on this. I feel like they are ruining a masterpiece. No, they're destroying my youth!!!

    Well...I'm at the point now where I just want to see the pilot and judge for myself Dynasty 2.0. I'll admit it will be jarring only because of my memories of Dynasty 1.0 however I'm sure that will fade. If by chance the re-boot fails it will have no reflection on the original, nor should it tarnish the memories so many fans have of it.

    My watching TNT Dallas in no way cast a shadow of re-watching Lorimar Dallas. If anything it proved how pathetic the ringmasters of TNT Dallas were at resurrecting a classic show.

    Why does it take so long to find all the actors and film the episodes?

    Hurry up, Dynasty!!:r&r:

    Now the activists want LGBTQIA, which stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex and Allies. It's becoming freakin' endless. What's next to add, Bisexual Animals? We certainly don't need "Questioning" in there, it's stupid.

    I don't think they should even have "Lesbian" or "Gay" because really, they're both just "Homosexual", right? That applies to both genders. ^^ And... "Allies"? Are you kidding me?

    I'm quite tolerant, but i think with 110 operations already that this guy is addicted to plastic surgery and addictions that dominate your life are never good and should be treated. No doctor here i germany would have done that, our doctors have sworn an oath that they just help people with their medical attention and don't harm them further if they're already sick. That's kind of an ethical question as well.
    But in the US it seems some doctors would do just anything for the right amount of money and those people should lose their approbation.
    Medicine is there to help and cure people, not an experimental fashion hobby that should be used as careless as in this case.
    I wish him well and that someone wakes him up from his delusions very soon, before something happens that he'll regret for the rest of his life.
