    I tend to agree with you... I don't think "sexual minority" is a good umbrella term.  I got to be "I" because I have two copies of a gene that caused me to have an active adrenal disorder that gives me a non standard hormone level for females, which is known as an 'intersex' disorder.  It is not an identity, it is not about sex, it isn't a choice, it isn't a preference.  I think the thing that all of the alphabet soup minorities have in common is that they are discriminated against by the dominant culture with its dominant gender identification and sexual identity.  That is what we all have in common.
