***In what I do believe is its honest attempt to be "inclusive," to me it just shows how divided the community actually is. I understand the intent but I don't agree with the result.***
Exactly. And also, as someone else phrased it: If so many people are to be included in the abbreviation, who is NOT included? If the answer is that the label is meant to embrace everyone other than cisgender people who are attracted to other cisgender people of the opposite sex, I would think someone could come up with a good, concise label for that and thereby avoid all those added letters. I'd love to make a suggestion, but I haven't yet been able to think of a clear and concise one that references both gender and sexual orientation.
