Would creating an LGBTQ tag make sense?

I think it could be helpful for categorization, yes. This is information that will almost certainly be included in the question if it is relevant, but tags do make it easy to search for types of ...

Should we tag our questions by (cultural) region?

At the very least, we should push people asking questions to provide regional or cultural context in the body of the question. I don't see a problem with tagging it, too. If the community feels the ...

When can I use the lgbt+ tag?

In general, I think tags should only be used when they are relevant to the specific situation in the question (and that relevance is clear in the question). Like tag help says: A tag is a word or ...

Do [profanity] and [stutter] need their own tags?

Every topic on the site falls under the the tag "interpersonal"... Which is blacklisted for that reason. Arguably the same could be said of communication, since the vast majority of questions here ...

Should we rename our country tags to be cultural tags?

Should we rename our country tags to be cultural tags? I'd say no. But you raise a very good point IMO. The location AND the culture can be (are?) important. I don't think we can answer the ...

How this tag description is actually rejected for not describing when to use it?

1. It's plagiarized. The first sentence of that text is taken verbatim from the first sentence of the Wikipedia article on Asperger syndrome. You did not attribute (i.e. give credit to the source) the ...

What value does a new tag on a heavily downvoted/closed question have and what to do about it?

If anything queer would be a subset of lgbt+ and I would suspect that it's a small enough subset that it doesn't really need a separate tag at the moment. Most people who would identify as queer ...

Should we tag our questions by (cultural) region?

Tagging too many questions will discourage people from posting who are from outside a region/culture. We should tag questions by culture if it seems like the culture is especially relevant, but not as ...

Let's make difficult-people less difficult

Like what more specific tags? difficult-people is useful. Also, I don't think it's being overused - currently there are 8 questions tagged with it, out of 236, which is about 3.39%, nowhere near 50%. ...

Do we differentiate [tag:autism] and [tag:asperger]?

For now I recommend we get rid of all of these tags because they are shorthand for longer terms. They can be made into synonyms of what I would like to recommend be the master tag: autism-spectrum-...
