Acronym

by Annaelle

I hereby declare «LGBT» to be an obsolete acronym.

I suggest this one instead, which is a work in progress, see notes :
LGBPPADG-ΔSH-P-FK-I-ITAQ-AE

Sexual orientations:
Lesbians
Gay
Bisexuals
Pansexuals
Polysexuals
Asexuals
Demi-Ace
Grey-Ace
Queers

Those whose romantic orientation.s do not exactly match their sexual orientation.s :
Deltaromantic *
Superromantic**
Hyporomantic ***

Sexo-Romantic distribution :
Polyamorous

Non-normative sexual behaviour
Fetish
Kink

Bodily appearance :
Intersex

Gender identities :
Ipsogender
Trans
Agender
GenderQueer

Sex workers
Active
Ex

NOTE :
As far as I know, those are neologisms (which is a fancy way to say that I just made up these words to acknowledge that those whose (a)romantic orientation.s which do not exactly match their (a)sexual orientation.s will live have fundamentally different difficulties in hegemonic patriarchic society. If anyone knows the endonyms for these experiences, please share so that I can update the acronym.
*whose (a)romantic orientation.s do not overlap with their (a)sexual orientation.s at all
** whose romantic orientation.s include people outside their sexual orientation.s
***whose sexual orientation.s include people outside their romantic orientation.s

NOTE 2 :
Is it possible that we should include sex-workers somewhere to acknowledge the important role of sex-workers in the militantism against patriarchic sexual oppression? In fact, does anybody still believe that sex workers aren’t an oppressed sexual minority?

Did I miss anyone? Please comment.
