This, by Rod Liddle, made me laugh this morning, actually out loud when I got to the bit about biromantic. A list that long just strikes me as a bit silly. Why not just provide welfare services for everybody regardless of their gender 'identity'. It'd sound less complicated even if it isn't.
💬 Help, I have sexuality umbrella dysfunction
I have just been sent (anonymously) a notice from the Durham University LGBT+ Association, and I am delighted to see that it is an inclusive organisation. Very inclusive.
It exists, it says, to provide “welfare services, campaigns and socials to anyone who identifies as being under the LGBTQ+ umbrella, including but not limited to: those under the trans umbrella, genderqueer, genderfluid, genderflux, agender, pangender, bigender, intergender, non-binary, third-gender, and gender questioning or non-conforming individuals, intersex individuals, lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, asexual, grey-asexual, demisexual, homoromantic, panromantic, biromantic [I think that means doing stuff with cheap pens], aromantic and polyamorous individuals”.
It also advises that any questions or concerns should be addressed to Molly in the welfare department.
OK, Molly. I have a question. I am a grey-pansexual (as my pet goat will confirm) genderflux homoromantic, under the trans umbrella. But the bloody umbrella won’t open. I think the catch is stuck. What should I do? 🔚
