My Facebook feed is a sea of red and white. So sure, let’s totes promise to keep assigning math symbols to complicated issues of identity after today - in fact, 40% of homeless youth are LGBT (link). Over 10,400 Black men who have sex with men (MSM) were diagnosed as HIV+ between 2010 and 2012 (link). Over that same time period, 1/5 of Latina trans women in the LA area report being physically assaulted by law enforcement (link).
By logical extension of =, I’m pretty sure profile pictures with %, +, / will catch on any day now. That’s what it means to organize in a coalition worth all of the letters in its acronym, and not just the first two. Otherwise, the result of all this work is solely symbolic.

the list goes on
women are treated like shit in this world
