    Default Canada again: teachers attend 'LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP' inclusiveness training

    As someone said, it's hard to include lots of sub-groups in a snappy group title that is supposed to cover sub-groups that stem from their members being different from other sub-groups.

    But here's the latest attempt.

    I find it odd that these folks talk about things like "the LGBT community" as if it is a community that is grounded in some commonality.

    Now we're at the point where it's all very mix-and-match - everyone just picks from the massive set of initials that relate to these various groups. No doubt they upset some sub-group in the process, no matter how hard they try to be inclusive.

    "The Canadian Elementary Teachers Federation (ETFO) of Ontario hosted a LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP inclusiveness training session on June 6.

    The acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Twospirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual and Polyamorous."

    Canada is the Sweden of the New World. A nation with a death wish.

    The male feminist in charge is a dangerous piece of work.

    In my experience Canadians are lovely people, yet they, or some group of them, keep coming up with this type of bolloxology. You really have to wonder are they just too nice and too polite to call out the nonsense.
    End biased moderation

    Tucker Carlson on Fox had a good(and funny) debate on this last week with a Canadian professor , really exposed the total obscurity of it all. Maybe someone might post it up.

    A lot of this stuff originates, or is taken seriously, within education circles.

    Is there really much chance of it all becoming mainstream, so that people in the private sector are running around worrying about all of this? Most companies stick to the LGBT thing currently, with maybe the odd Q, A or + added in.

    I think that's it.

    As is happening in various places, even asking questions about this stuff gets one howled down as a homophobe or transphobe or whatever else. So most people keep quiet when the issue is raised.
