The QUILTBAG Club (formerly the LGBT club)
 
Making a new thread because the last one's pretty huge now. :)


ETA: QUILTBAG stands for Queer/Questioning, Undecided, Intersex, Lesbian, Trans, Bisexual, Asexual, Gay! It's much better than saying the LGBT club (the A is invisible.)

I approve of this renaming.

Re: The QUILTBAG Club (formerly the LGBT club)
 
Me too! It's much more inclusive. And it's a word!

And everyone likes quilts, right?!

...

oh my god

quiltbag is following me everywhere

wtf is this madness!!!

Over at GovTeen we've recently restructured the forum index and moved a ton of forums, and a bunch of members are kicking off because we moved the gay forum to our Communities category (idk it's retarded). ANYWAY there's a thread about how the forum isn't inclusive of asexuals, so one guy posted in big red letters QUILTBAG OR BUST.

... now everyone wants to rename the forum QUILTBAG :(

Ahahaha QUILTBAG is the best abbreviation ever. And that is all I have to say about that.

"undecided" means not sure of your sexuality yet, right? If so, I'm that, or possibly asexual.

I think 'the queer club' is a good name too. We're all just queer.

Re: The QUILTBAG Club (formerly the LGBT club)
 
Nah. 'Queer' isn't always used as a blanket term, and it also doesn't really include the A.

Re: The QUILTBAG Club (formerly the LGBT club)
 
Well, QUILTBAG isn't always used either. o_O I'm not suggesting changing it, just that it is a good blanket term that is, well, more well-known and such and such.

Also it does too include the A.

Quote:

Queer is an umbrella term for minority sexual orientations and gender identities[1] that are not heterosexual, heteronormative or gender-binary.

Re: The QUILTBAG Club (formerly the LGBT club)
 
Oh wow, I just realised that QUILTbag is a BLANKET term. *easily amused*

I love how nobody knows what QUILTBAG stands for, so I can just sort of use it wherever I go and not get weird looks. LGBT sounds too much like a sandwich.

The QUILTBAG Club: Not queers/questioning/undecided/intersex/lesbians/transsexuals/bisexuals/asexuals/gays, just people who like talking about the acronym.

Where is this post leading? I have no idea.

iirc, 'queer' is just 'literally everything and anything that isn't straight 100% hetero'. which, I would assume, includes asexuality. it's also got more of a punch to it than 'LGBT'.

that said, QUILTBAG is an awesome name.

oh and sign me up plz. can't remember if I did in the last thread, but may as well now. :D

I mean that queer is not always a blanket term. o_o It can be used for everyone non-cisgendered heterosexual, but I at least mostly see it used for genderqueer.

Ah, well I don't know how much you hang out in er, the QUILTBAG (eheh) community, but it is a very commonly used term. Well, among queer people, meaning it's not very common at all. :v

Re: The QUILTBAG Club (formerly the LGBT club)
 
:/ Eh. It's common, yeah.

I don't know. Just ... eh.

Hey, I wasn't trying to insult you in some way. I was just saying.
