Hello friends, Mouse `ere! I dare say, the cultural termites in northern North America (Canada to be precise) are stirring up a large pot of bubbling alphabet stew. LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP. It just rolls off the tongue, eh?
As the completely un-mnemonic acronym stands, and even if the letters were shuffled into something like “BAD,” or QTIPP-BLAGGAT-QDT, the acronym represents at least 25 separate uhh...identities. And it's dreadfully short-sighted. At only 15 identities, it discriminates against the 64-gender identity list now recognized on college campuses (otherwise known as incubators of degeneracy) everywhere. But I digress.
A Canadian school board is making--you guessed it--'progressive' steps by having teachers participate in extensive inclusiveness training, but the title of the session has left some perplexed.
The Canadian Elementary Teachers Federation (ETFO) of Ontario hosted a LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP inclusiveness training session on June 6.
The acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Twospirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual and Polyamorous.
But, beyond the gurgling brew of canned alphabet soup, we are nearing the Acronym Waterloo of Confusion (AWC for short). Therefore, in the spirit of postmodern diversity I offer up this contribution to simplicity, let's call them Colorful Snowflakes, or CS for short.
God save the Queen (the real one, not some transmogrified monstrosity), and God bless the new simplicity!
More importantly, let us Believers honour God by appreciation for His two (and only two) distinct genders. His ways endure forever (Psalm 136).
As you were,
