At what point do we become parodies of ourselves?  
Years ago, I blogged this about LGBTQ suddenly becoming LGBTQI.

I thought we were done.

Oh no.

Apparently, there are people who sit around a table and get really, really bored so they just try to think of something to add. Why? I have no effing clue. But, yes, ladies and gentlemen, somewhere along the way, we became:

GLBTQQIA

Did I miss a memo?

I guess my ghey membership lapsed or something. As I recall, when the Q was added, it was supposed to be a catch-all. Personally, I think when Q was added, we should have dropped all the other letters. Then we could've just become "The Q."

Hot.

Anyway, they diluted the Q with another Q, which I can only assume is Questioning. My friend tells me the A is for Allies.

*shrugs*

I can't wait to find out what letter we add next! A what point did this become ridiculous? I say we get it over with and just call ourselves ^[A-Z].

*facepalm*

Totally fucking ridiculous, that's what it is. For one, I've never been comfortable being lumped in transgendered anything. I've got a massive rant at the ready if it ever comes up in conversation. Now this "group" I've been made a part of by birth includes hermaphrodites and idiots that can't even decide whether they want pussy or dick?

A total joke. Gays long ago became self-parodies, David. Have you never seen Will & Grace or any of the Logo channel?

Here it's LGBTTTIQQ.

I've never heard about the "A" though.

Yes it's long. When we say it, we either say "L G B triple-T I double-Q" or "L G B Trans and Queer community", to be inclusive.

Re: good grief!
I know! I couldn't believe it. Another friend posted a link to it and one of his friends is evidently part of it. I just don't get it. There are enough classifications as it is without adding another layer, especially one that goes to such lengths to differentiate itself. Then there's the problem of how you fucking pronounce it!
