So I learned a new term today. QUILTBAG.
Q – Queer, Questioning
U – Unidentified
I – Intersex
L – Lesbian
T – Transsexual, Transgender
B – Bisexual
A – Asexual
G – Gay, Genderqueer
I kinda like it. I mean, partly I like it just because it’s an acronym that is also actually a pronounceable word (at least in English).
I also like it because, well, it’s a bag. As in: “Everyone in the quiltbag” or “The whole quiltbag” or whatever. You could potentially even use “Everyone else in the quiltbag” if you wanted a reference to “alternative” sexualities/relationship-styles like S/M, D/s, and the gamut of Open romantic relationships (that said, the kinky ones could technically be included under the “L” as Leather or the “B” as BDSM…) that also include heterosexuals.
I even like Melannen’s thought about making an actual quilted tote bag using the various flags and symbols as patches.
So, yeah. I think I may try to use this term more often.
