If the gay-rights movement today seems to revolve around same-sex marriage, this generation is seeking something more radical: an upending of gender roles beyond the binary of male/female. The core question isnt whom they love, but who they are that is, identity as distinct from sexual orientation.
But what to call this movement? Whereas gay and lesbian was once used to lump together various sexual minorities and more recently L.G.B.T. to include bisexual and transgender the new vanguard wants a broader, more inclusive abbreviation. Youth today do not define themselves on the spectrum of L.G.B.T., said Shane Windmeyer, a founder of Campus Pride, a national student advocacy group based in Charlotte, N.C.
Part of the solution has been to add more letters, and in recent years the post-post-post-gay-rights banner has gotten significantly longer, some might say unwieldy. The emerging rubric is L.G.B.T.Q.I.A., which stands for different things, depending on whom you ask.
Q can mean questioning or queer, an umbrella term itself, formerly derogatory before it was appropriated by gay activists in the 1990s. I is for intersex, someone whose anatomy is not exclusively male or female. And A stands for ally (a friend of the cause) or asexual, characterized by the absence of sexual attraction.
It may be a mouthful, but its catching on, especially on liberal-arts campuses.

I wish all LBGTQIA’s would just go MIA
The acronym will only get longer and more ridiculous as they add other freakshow categories.
Intersexed? Good grief. A birth defect is not a sexual identity. Then again, neither is a mental disorder ... and “transexual” has been included for a while.
I don't think they grow beyond a self-absorbed 14 year old.
That's the reason they get on peoples' nerves.
The world is going seriously to hell in the proverbial hand basket—but not to worry—we haven’t started granting marriage licenses to Man/dog relationships yet..............
Tune in next week for a possible update.
Why don’t they just use these letters: IARFU
Who would have thought they would become even more ridiculous.
‘Perv’ is so much easier to remember.
I’ll stick with the accurate term of perverts..............
“I have no interest in hearing about their recreational uses for their private parts and their demands that everyone else celebrate same”
Agreed. Anyone who’s universe revolves around their gonads is broken and unbalanced.
I’d be okay with them if they’d STFU.
Would make a great Scrabble word though.
I’ve got a more wieldly phrase that covers all the bases: perverts.
I prefer to use the acronym from She, He, It and Transvestite or S.H.I.T.
The party of "Let's not put people in categories, is... Putting people in categories then they accuse US of putting people in categories..."
I thought the B stood for bestiality. Maybe they should make that part B squared.
Just homeschool or religious-school your kids, ban Hollyweird indoctrination shows like Parenthood, New Normal and Glee from your home, teach conservative and founding principles....and wait. Your kids will be miles ahead of the soulless ghouls being forged by the depraved evil culture.
lol.....sounds about right.
Soon to be added: the “P” for oppressed NAMBLA “second-class citizens.”
Libtards have created this alphabet-soup, balkanized “normal”.
All they want to do is pigeonhole, label, divide, balkanize, into groups that they can then pit against each other as they use the dialectic to get their goals accomplished while fooling most to think that they’re actually making the choices, and deflect any groups’ anger onto other “problem” groups and not themselves.
I’ve got one for them: PERV, short for “pervert”.
The idiot writer does not know the difference between an abbreviation and an acronym.
Oh, isn’t it exciting, the way today’s youth “define” themselves! And it’s our responsibility to keep up! /s
Why don’t they just call themselves Perverted Unnatural Lumps of Flesh and get the hell out of my face.
They can't do any better than "You are what you hump." ?
You can't get much shallower than that without goiong 2D.
I just call them “SC’s” for sexually confused.
“Anyone whos universe revolves around their gonads is broken and unbalanced.”
you aren’t talking about the average adolescent male are you?
Lets see... Add a P for the polygamists...
And a Z for the zooist.
Good point. Fortunately, that passes.
Well, since gay and lesbian are so ‘maintstream’ in their young eyes, there has to be SOMETHING they can do to shock their parents./s
