When Donald Trump used the acronym LGBTQ the other day in a speech I thought he had made an error in his presentation that would send the left into stratospheric orbit, but then I googled the term and sure enough, the “Q” stands for queer/questioning. I have no idea what the “questioning” part refers to, but I take it that homosexuals are OK with being called queers again, at least as part of the package acronym.
At risk of being politically incorrect, I just want to keep up with what I’m permitted to say and what the radical left is forbidding to be said, so I can keep on the good side of the dominant social/political class. These vacuous people change so frequently that it’s difficult for the average person to keep up, so I’m just asking.
Would they prefer to just be called Qs? Is the entire word queer permissible? Or does the entire LGBTQ logo have to be used? Is just the original LGBT now offensive, if the Q is eliminated in speaking? Is the word Gay back in vogue?
Young politically active people are such snowflakes these days, with their micro-aggressions and their need for safe spaces where they aren’t offended by having to hear opinions expressed that are contrary to their own, that I’m afraid to crush their cocoons by treating them like real individuals who have real people problems and concerns, so I want to get this ever-changing environment properly expressed and worded to their satisfaction.
Again, I’m just asking.
