@VyrCossont While I understand that your post was made to get a laugh out of people, and it even got one out of me, upon looking at it all I could think about how dumb the LGBTQIA Acronym is and why MOaGI (Marginalized Orientations and Gender Identities) is a better name for the community.
BTW, good job with the humour, that was a well made joke :)

@nikkie2571 MOAGI or MOGAI is never gonna see action anywhere other than Tumblr.

SGM/GSM might have a chance due to occasional academic or government use (hopefully SGM because GSM is also a standard for cell phones)…

@nikkie2571 but i think we're realistically going to be working with variants of LGBT(Q?)(I?)(A?) for a very long time in most contexts.

i'd really especially like to see the I get stabilized in style guides; intersex people are constantly conflated with trans people, but have legal and medical issues distinct from those of trans people, yet they tend to get ignored. (of course, there's a fair number of people that are both intersex and trans.)
