LGBTQ?

Heck, just give me a PBJ or a BLT and I am gay...happy! happy! I meant happy!

(Dang queers, hijacking a perfectly decent word... grumble grumble grumble)

Seriously though... This is the first one I have noticed, and probably the last one I will ever post on. Credit my weirdo sense of humor for this post.

Otherwise, they can do their thing, I will do mine and the world continues to turn. Or was it "as the world turns?"
The world continues to wobble?

Frankly, my deah, I don't give a durn. Cut!!

I have no idea where the "Q" came from, I've always known it as LGBT. Must be a US thing.

Chances are, some conservative blogger (known in conservative circles as "a reputable news source") wrote something about how the gay is ruining or taking over something new and therefore..chaos...so, we need the parrots, then the anti-parrots, then the starchasers, the flagites, and finally, the wutton threads...then all is quiet until some new blogger has a bad day about the gay, then voila, back in ATS like somehow it matters what our neighbor is doing in their bedroom.

Totally agree with your comments. It's a non issue, we've all got plenty more important things we should be worried about.


I think the unfair treatment of a human is important & something we should be worried about. Would you feel this way(about it being a non issue & not important) back in the days of the mistreatment of African Americans, how they were not equal to Caucasians? Sure there were other things going on but that didn't make it any less important.

You've taken my comments out of context. The reasons you gave to care about this issue are not the same reasons that 35,000 threads on this site have.

Well, let be help you out. Here is a partial list from Wikipedia:


Many variants exist including variations that merely change the order of the letters; LGBT or GLBT are the most common terms and the ones most frequently seen in current usage. Although identical in meaning, LGBT may have a more feminist connotation than GLBT as it places the "L" (for "lesbian") first. When not inclusive of transgender people it is sometimes shortened to LGB. LGBT may also include additional "Q"s for "queer" or "questioning" (sometimes abbreviated with a question mark and sometimes used to mean anybody not literally L, G, B or T) which can then look like e.g., "LGBTQ" or "LGBTQQ"".

Other variants may add a "U" for "unsure"; a "C" for "curious"; an "I" for "intersex"; another "T" for "transsexual" or "transvestite"; another "T", "TS", or "2" for "Two-Spirit" persons; an "A" or "SA" for "straight allies"; or an "A" for "asexual". Some may also add a "P" for "pansexual" or "polyamorous", an "H" for "HIV-affected", and/or an "O" for "other"



The magazine Anything That Moves coined the acronym "FABGLITTER" from Fetish (such as the BDSM lifestyle community), Allies or poly-Amorous (as in Polyamorous couples), Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Intersexed, Transgender, Transsexual Engendering Revolution or inter-Racial attraction; however, this term has not made its way into common usage.

Another acronym that has begun to spread is "QUILTBAG" from Queer or Questioning, Undecided, Intersex, Lesbian, Trans, Bisexual, Asexual, Gay; again, this is not a common term.

Similarly, in some areas people are starting to simply use "LGBTQetc" or "LGBTQ+" to be more inclusive. The initial A for Allies comes from straight (heterosexual) allies who are in support of the GLBT community, and sometimes they form an alliance in sociopolitical affairs to further represent the umbrella initialism "GLBTA" (Gay Lesbian Bi Trans Alternative or Allies).The A may also be used to represent asexual people. "LGBTQIA" has some use among transgender American college students and their contemporaries.



In response to years of lobbying from users and LGBT groups to eliminate discrimination, the online social networking service Facebook, in February 2014, widened its gender variants to 50. However, this initiative has its critics.


There, now it should be all clear. Personally, I think it's all a royal pain in the butt.

Not sure if you will be reading my response but the Q stands for Queer & it encompasses the other sexualities that are not Lesbian, Gay, Bi sexual or Transgendered.

By the way, Queer was not changed by non heterosexuals to mean what it does today, it was changed by heterosexuals just like they changed the meaning of Gay.

As The World Turns is what you were looking for if you were going for the soap opera reference. I would have also accepted "Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives." :p

To be center of attention.

Every time i have met some one gay it is the first thing out of their mouths, "I'm Gay and proud" I'm like I'm Nigel and proud. Like i want to know what gender someone prefers.


Nasmate, you can call me Kira and even though I haven't full out said "Look at me, I'm bisexual & proud of it" I still talked about it.

I wonder how many people you have met that are LGBTQ that announced right away their sexual preference? I also wonder how accepting your community is of LGBTQ members? Some people like to get it out of the way right away because they know others can be uncomfortable & they want to get it out of the way so they can move on to other things.

Other people will keep their mouths shut if they live in an area that isn't as supporting of LGBTQ. I'm in a major religious town (lots of different faiths) and most people keep their mouths shut because they don't want to be treated like garbage.

As I have not read all 35,000 threads & I doubt you have read them all too, I can't for sure say why people made those threads. I don't think you can for sure say why those people made those threads too unless it was clearly to cause trouble.

Either way, does it matter why people make a thread about it when people make threads about pretty much everything? A thread has been made and if you don't like, don't read it, no one is forcing you to.

There are tons of threads Obama & all created for different reasons, it doesn't mean that I should get all huffy about it & think that those people are not justified in why they made that thread.

Why not?

seriously i could post topics about the GLBT daily, and they are the few topics i participate in, mostly because i'm knowledgeable in most things dealing with GLBT

i understand this is an Alternative News site that deals with more "Conspiracies" but i like talking to people about things they may not be privy of, even if their views are different, i don't try to change peoples mind, but if i can enlighten or make people think (even if they don't admit it) i am happy

Gay is the new Jew. You can't be critical of the lifestyle, or their methods of coercing acceptance, to the slightest degree without incurring absolute demonization and being stigmatized as an evil "homophobe" (a derogatory label that has nothing to do with fear).

I know that probably pisses a lot of people off, but it's true. Gay is now a rhetorically-protected class (it's socially unacceptable to display any public disapproval/disagreement), which may embolden them to speak more forcefully than they have in the past, as well as cause resentment in the straight population.

The "issue" (as unfortunate as it is that we even have to call it that) is becoming more emotionally charged on both sides of the fence. That's probably one factor in the increasing frequency and intensity of discourse.

Case in point, I now feel obligated to disclose to everyone that I don't have anything against gay people.

See what I mean?

If only people could learn to dislike something without loathing. I'll admit I don't like the lifestyle of a gay individual and consider it against Gods archetype for mankind; however in the same breath, I'll admit it none of my business how one conducts themselves, as long as they don't include me in that lifestyle. To me it's no different than any political party hating the other side. We should be able to laugh and enjoy each others company all the same, regardless of our mental proclivities - mutual respect.

Is it really that hard to agree to disagree? Respect each others space, love one another, and profit. It's a short term solution, but I'd like to see that kind of peace before my end...

I think some people just like to argue.
Some people fear what they don't understand, and try to get reinforcements in numbers.
Some people aren't tolerant of any views other than how THEY think the entire world should be.
Some people focus on what they perceive to be the faults of others as a means of not focusing on- and dealing with- their own short-comings.

We profess to be a religious people in the US, but if that were truly the case we wouldn't be having discussions like this. If we lived our life from a perspective of love and becoming the very best we can be, we would be so focused on self improvement that we wouldn't have time to be concerned with whether or not someone was wearing pink, or paying their bills on time, or drinking an occasional beer, or cheating on their wife.....

It is not our individual responsibility to judge our fellow man for perceived short comings. It is our responsibility to live our lives trying to be better tomorrow than than we were today.....and we can't do that if our attention is focused on somebodies elses faults and not our own.

I am no better than the least of my fellow man, and no less than the greatest.

I would like to add that I have noticed that some draw the GLBH thing like a gun.
There was an era when intimate relations between two people was a sacred thing. Sharing you body with another human being was considered the ultimate perfection of love between two people, not a just a physical act that all animals are capable of. It is nobody elses business, and to flaunt such an intimate, sacred union in public devalues it, IMO.

All humans should have equal rights. All couples, regardless of gender, should have equal rights. That just seems like common sense to me.
If you think it's wrong, no problem. If you want to judge someone? Look in the mirror; I'm sure we can all find more than enough to work on improving.

Here in the UK swingers refers to wife swapping parties etc . The Point I was making is not to tarnish the whole gay community because of a minority of individuals who scream about their sexuality from the roof tops. Just in the same way not all straight people are tarnished with same brush as "swingers and dogging".

I'll ask the question again, how many gay people do you think you've met who have not informed you they were gay?

I know some very alpha gay men that most straight men would not mess with or know they were gay.


In my town full of churches, I've met a lot of people and only 2 told me they were non heterosexuals. The rest of the people kept it to themselves and I've only found out about it by going to Glo events (events only for LGBTQ) That number would be 25 that didn't tell me and there are still more in my community that are non heterosexuals that do not attend any events & do not go around saying that they are LGBTQ. There are 59 churches in my city with a population of just under 40,000 that's why people keep their sexual orientation a secret.

You know it's funny how you think that LGBTQ are "disgusting sodomites" when in the U.S it is legal in 23 states for people to have sex with a horse. Now that is disgusting.

There is nothing wrong with sodomy, you should try it some time. Seriously!! There are tons of nerve endings there so many people find it pleasurable and a lot of them that enjoy it are heterosexuals!! Even the porn industry reflects trends in main stream sexuality and that is why it has become more prevalent, because people enjoy it.

AMEN!!

With how religious people are acting towards LGBTQ & judging them so harshly, they are going to hell because they are committing sins. They should be more worried about themselves going to hell then other people who may or may not go to hell for being LGBTQ.
