    I get that things that don't have a term get a word. But when you go "this is, like, in between", "this is... like... OUTSIDE all of the existing terms", it feels like you're really pushing it to get your very own definition.

    It's funny that they call your platonic romance partner (I just call this a bromance) a zucchini. To me, if a guy hauls out his zucchini, it's not gonna stay platonic for long!

    It starts to get crowded in here ...


    I feel it's kind of unnecessary. I drew the line with Intersex, queer and pansexual. So if I'm using the full umbrella acronym it'd be LGBTQIP. I don't plan on adding "updates". I'm pretty sure most of not all those mentioned in the article fall nose-flat into one of these seven categories.


    Anything beyond that seems like a quest to deliberately differentiate one's sexual interests away from (what's gradually becoming) mainstream, and in a hipster-ish fashion attempting to force out a separate definition and category, recognized, accepted and included in the already crowded alternate sexuality alphabet.


    I'm not exactly dumb, but even Stephen Hawking would have enough of this "I'm a non-gender flexible, but fluid queer-furry otakusexual", or something along those lines. I get it we are all different, but a lot of people try to be as different as they can come up with by force, and demand that you remember everything that pertains about them, out of respect.

    I respectfully decline friendships with such people. I don't plan on torturing my brain with personal definitions of one's sexual interest beyond any basics.

    I have heard that this issue is becoming huge in the high schools. One of my friends has a grandchild that is going to the same high school that I went to. It is in a very conservative, heavily Republican city in Southern California. I was really surprised to find out that there is a LGBT straight alliance club on the school campus. I could not imagine something like that being there when I went there. Shows you how much things have changed for the better.

    Anyways, my friend tells me about her granddaughter and her friends are experimenting with their gender. One day they dress as a girl, the next the dress as a boy...some dress androgynous. Some change into these clothes when they get to the school so their parents don't find out. There is a whole long list of genders that they recognize and they take it very seriously. When my friend asked her granddaughter about one of her friends...wondering if the person wanted to be recognized as male or female she replied back that it was not a proper question to ask. My friend is a little concerned that this might be too much for people who are already dealing with puberty to deal with so many gender issues. She has always been supportive of the LGBT community. But she finds this to be a "bit overwhelming".

    Well, there are over 2,400 students in that school. So the people vary widely even though it leans heavily conservative. Many of the students do not tend to lean as conservative as their parents. Some do, but those students that tend to lean more conservative are not involved in the LGBT Straight Alliance group.

    What a load of bs. People calling themselves with all these modern names have nothing better to do. You fall in love or you don't, you want to have sex or you don't. All these labels are useless.

    So retarded. Must be a slow news day. So instead of FRIEND I'm supposed to say "Queerplatonic Relationship?" And I'm supposed to call my FRIEND "My Zucchini?" What do you call it when you want to punch someone in the face? Cause that's what I'd like to do to the author.

    So much for not labeling ourselves. icon_rolleyes.gif

    You're only a zucchini if you find yourself having to say "... no homo" a lot.
