Listen I love Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwiches. I was fine with Lettuce, Guacamole, Bacon and Tomato sandwiches. But dammit adding Quinoa is just too much for me.

I prefer to swap out lettuce for basil.  Lettuce brings nothing to the party anyway.

I just picked up a cheapo inverter stick welder. The thing had IGBT (type of inverter tech) in huge letters on the side, so that got changed to LGBTQ+ and it's currently getting a rainbow paintjob. Love my fabulous new welder.

According to Steven Petrow of the Washington Post, the term "bisexual" started to become a truly recognized sexual identity in the 1990s

Steven Petrow is likely a Millennial, since I knew what bisexuality was and that I was bi in the early mid 80s. As far as "truly recognized" there are still both straight and gay people who don't recognize bisexuality

QUILTBAG+ sounds like a place I can store my laptop, pencils, some Hot Pockets, a few cans of beer, my cat, a small car, and a printer/copier/scanner combo.

Quinoa is fine in a survival situation like if you crash in a remote area and you've already eaten all the other passengers.

My college's queer org was the "GLSU" (Gay and Lesbian Students Union) back in the '80s.

Kinsey recognized it in the 1940s, perhaps not by name, but certainly the existence of folks who are attracted to both sexes, heck go back to the Romans and their married boy lovers it's not like it's  a new idea. I'm pretty perplexed by the idea that someone would deny the reality that is blindingly obvious, but we have a LOT of that in our society of late.

It might help if they hired people who had a modicum of knowledge about the subject.

Word usage changes over time for everything- but use of bisexual to describe that behavior being from the 90's?

Sure - the 1890's.

The first English-language use of the word "bisexual" referring to sexual orientation was by the American neurologist Charles Gilbert Chaddock in his 1892 translation of the 7th edition of Krafft-Ebing's seminal work Psychopathia Sexualis.

I've actually had whiskey made with quinoa, and it's the most hipster beverage I have tasted.

and ffs don't skip the rinse!
ok, actually an LBGTQIA+  sandwich does sound better.  i butter mine :)

I prefer just queer, it's a better blanket term. It bothers the hell out of me when I see an individual referred to as "LGBT+" since they can be at most two of those things.

Too bad the term Q Community is already taken.

The LGBTQIA+ community, pronouns and all that don't offend me. Use whatever you want to divide, categorize, and separate yourself from others; go right ahead.

It's that people say that this is an 'acronym', when in fact it's an 'initialism' which bothers the fark out of me.
See https://www.dictionary.com/e/acro​nym-v​s-abbreviation/.

You're correct, subby.

LGBTQ should not be confused with the GQ BLT:  a well-dressed sammich.

Can we just arrange it alphabetically for the folks who are a little bit anal (*snert*).

Or maybe just do ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. That should take care of all variations.

Or simplify it and call all people trysexuals. You tried it, you liked it, that's who you are. You only get turned on by women dressed as postal workers who like to stuff their mail pouch with sauerkraut and yodel while giving foot jobs to diminutive men*?

Cool. You're still a trysexual.

I have known people to rearrange it, add a few unnamed groups, and call it QUILTBAG, which I am fond of.
 
2021-06-16 1:22:57 PM  
I think it looks like the abbreviation for a Soviet-era Union.

And it is an abbreviation. An acronym has to be pronuncaible and preferably a word. You'd be surprised how many people get that wrong, even when they know it.

I think what the sexual minorities need is a No Homers Club. They're allowed one straight in the clubhouse at a time, plus any number of F** H**s

But I will consider the gay movement will have triumphed when the straights all allowed in but don't accept the invitation because they don't feel like they are missing something.

On that day, Puritans will not care if somebody, somewhere, is having fun.

Queer
U ?
I ?
Lesbian
Transexuals
Bisexuals
Asexuals
Gays

But what are the missing letters? Unitarians? Umpires? Independent Voters?
