An exclusionist, commonly shortened to exclus, is a discourse term to refer to a person who believes the core purpose of the LGBT+ community is group protection. They tend to care more about historical sources or definitions over personal feelings. They believe that cishet approval is needed in order for lgbt individuals to have rights. Since they prioritize history, they can sometimes dismiss people's feelings, and even boss people around (e.g; "you can't identify as pansexual, it's biphobic). However, not all exclus are guilty of doing this.

Common exclusionist beliefs are (Note: People don't have to inherently have every of these views to be an exclusionist):
-the acronym is LGBT, or sometimes LGBT+
-ace and aro aren't inherently LGBT, they would need to either have same gender attraction, or be trans
-asexuality and aromanticism are not spectrums ("either you're ace or you're not")
-lesbians need to be women, and gays need to be men. Non-binary people are feminamoric or viramoric
-"gay" is a term that's only meant for men who only like men, lesbians and bisexuals should not use the term to refer to themselves
-Mspec identities like pan, omnisexual, or polysexual are not valid, and contribute to biphobia
-some form of gender dysphoria is needed in order to be transgender
-pronouns = gender
-either no neopronouns are valid, or only traditional neos like xe/xem are valid
-Queer is a slur, and shouldn't be used as a term for anyone to use to refer to the community

An inclusionist, commonly shortened to inclus, is a discourse term to refer to a person who believes the core purpose of the LGBT+ community is individual expression. They tend to care more about personal feelings over historical sources or definitions, and state that cishet approval is unnecessary, or sometimes even unwanted. While they prioritize making sure people feel comfortable with their label, they CAN inadvertently push harmful ideas of other sexualites by doing so (e.g; using biphobic stereotypes in order to support other M-spec identities like pansexuality). However, not all inclus are guilty of doing this.

Common inclusionist beliefs are (Note: People don't have to inherently have every of these views to be an inclusionist):
-the acronym is LGBTQ+, LGBTQIA+, or something similar
-aces and aros (including cishet ones) are part of the community
-asexuality and aromanticism are spectrums
-non-binary people can be lesbians or gay
-"gay" is an umbrella term that anyone with same gender attraction can use
-Mspec identities like pan, omnisexual, or polysexual are valid
-you do not need gender dysphoria to be transgender
-pronouns don't equal gender
-all pronouns are valid, including nounself and emoji pronouns
-Queer is a valid identity, and isn't a slur (some even say it never has been).
