It might look like an alphabet-soup spill, or something a guy with his jaw wired shut would say while trying to curse you out. But no, LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM is an actual acronym that exists in the real world populated by actual human beings that breathe the same air as we do.

Katherine Timpf, National Review:

Weslyan University in Connecticut is now offering “LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM” housing, because apparently “LGBT” — or even “LGBTTQQ” — wouldn’t have been inclusive enough.

For the culturally ignorant among us, “LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM” stands for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, genderf***, polyamorous, bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, sadism/masochism.”

Yep, that pretty much covers it… Wait. What about furries? Are they excluding furries? Why are they bigoted against furries?

This isn’t a joke. At least not intentionally. It’s straight from Wesleyan’s Office of Residential Life.

Note the placement of “flexual, asexual, genderf***,” in that order. This creates an acronym that is, to use the parlance of the day, problematic. I find myself triggered by this othering language, and I can only conclude that it’s intended as a microaggression.

Why doesn’t Wesleyan care about the PWDNTBMCIOTFADDR community?
