    Thank goodness for that. I don't like the LGBT acronym either.

    Great minds think alike.
    The LGBT acronym is turbo-charged PC.

    To me LGBT sounds like a garden railway.

    Most gay men don't identify at all with LGBT. It's a lesbian-feminist cult. For me the label conjures up images of left-wing 'gender-neutral' robots (with recorded female voices to be PC) waving rainbow flags and chanting meaningless slogans.

    That makes me think of a spoof 1970s scientist-fi title: 'Do Female Androids Smell of Fish?'
    J.G. Ballard perhaps, or Philip K. Dick?

    Marc Almond also hates 'the LGBT thing'. I did say great minds think alike.

    In the early to mid 80s there was an interesting phenomenon in west London, especially around the Notting Hill, Westbourne Grove and Bayswater area of pubs that attracted a parallel clientele of Rastafarians and gay men. There was not much socialising between the two groups but there was tolerance and some bonding over music.

    Feels like an anagrammed acronym of Britain's Got Less Talent or something.

    'Lefties Get Bloody Tiresome' or (to vary the order a little) 'Lumping Groups Together Backfires'.

    Who knows what KGB is as an acronym?

    For all you anoraks out there like me:

    Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti

    lol

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    I think we were equal before. We could all marry someone of the opposite sex (e.g. Tom Robinson), and none of us could marry someone of the same sex.
