@brandon Also even though you've changed it, applying the analogy to your sentence results in, "If you, [an LGBT person,] identify strong with [that identity], oftentimes an attack on [LGBT identities] is perceived as an attack on you."
Yes. That's an accurate perception; I can't think of a sitaution where someone is attacking LGBT gender/sexuality theory isn't attacking those people Example:
"People who go by the name Brandon are incapable of feeling love."
Was that a personal attack?
