There Is Now A "K" In The Ever-Growing LGBT Acronym

Submitted by: littlemissqt 3 weeks ago in Lifestyle News & Politics


LGBTQQICAPF2K... Guess what the K stands for.

Just when you thought you memorized the LGBTQ acronym, there a new letter to remember. According to a new report, there's now a K to add to the ever-growing LGBT+ acronym – and apparently, it stands for "kink." 

The acronym which has grown since the '90s, out of a need to move away from the limiting “gay community” adds letters to encompass any community that defines itself as anything but heterosexual or cisgender.

So what do all the letters mean?

L – lesbian
G – gay
B – bisexual
T – transgender
Q – queer
Q – questioning
I – intersex
A – asexual
A – agender
A – ally
C – curious
P – pansexual
P – polysexual
F – friends and family
2 – two-spirit
K – kink

Someday, perhaps all will be included and we'll just call it "the community."

My guess on this is that this is what the side the doesn't like them says the acronym is. Much like all Trump voters are racist rednecks. Generalizations used to ridicule the opponent.

I've never heard of any letters past Q and I'm a big old G. Someone is being ridiculously inclusive.

This has been absurd for awhile now. Anyone actually using that acronym ("A shout-out to my friends in the LGBTQQIAAACPPF2K community...") is going to sound like Max Headroom.

"anything but heterosexual or cisgender"

A – ally
F – friends and family

Isn't A and F exactly for heterosexual and cisgenders?

I prefer brunettes to blondes. I demand a letter. The fact that I haven't got a letter is in breach of my human rights.

Couldn't they just use "queer" to encompass all of them, as a word to refer to any non heteronormative behavior and attitudes?  

As the earlier letters become more and more "normalized" in society, the fringes simply expand.  There are many who likely, consciously or not, do not want society as a whole to accept them, because then they lose their labels.

faustsshadow It is an interesting question: What could be used to replace that alphabet soup? I propose NVS, for "Non-Vanilla Sexual."

How can I copyright that? I want a dime every time someone uses that! ~whiskers quivering~

DuckBoy87 Damn Arkansans, getting in the way of my path to wealth. ~fume~

There is nothing wrong with vanilla ice cream. In fact, it's the most popular flavor. It's because Southerners like peach ice cream, isn't it? Is that the problem here?

Well, fer cryin' out loud, no one says Southerners can't be peach! ~starting to wave paws in air~ PEACH ICE CREAM FOR EVERYONE! Southerners can be any darn flavor they want. They can be a different flavor every day of the month! They can be frickin' Baskin Robbins, for all I care!

See what happens when a squirrel comes up with a surefire way to make millions?

~grumbles, then pulls out adding machine~

I figure 10% of the world's human population would be using "NVS" at least once a month, what with all the liberal media, interior designers, and female gym teachers out there. Okay, make it 3%, just to be safe. ~punches buttons, pulls levers~ Lessee, that's 3% of 7.6 billion humans (you guys are reproducing like flies, aren't you?), which is 228,000, times ten cents... THAT'S ALMOST 23 MILLION DOLLARS A MONTH!

Just be quiet now, all you Arkansans! Shoo!

faustsshadow Since the definition of queer is to be odd or not normal, it wouldn't be very inclusive...
