Didja think I was kidding with the XYZ?

From my local Pride press release:

“…GLBTQQII (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersexed, interested)…”

When, oh when, will the poor, excluded straight people rise up to protest their oppression? Why should they have to camouflage their true identities under the euphemism “interested”? How can it be ethical for a community that so prides* itself on inclusivity to exclude people based on their sexual orientation? I just can’t understand it, myself.

*Ha ha, get it?

Revision Notes, July 2016

Once again, the aching irony of foreshadowing. Straight people are now joyfully included under the rainbow umbrella as long as they “identify” as “genderqueer.”
