Cheshire cheese

Today’s crap acronym comes courtesy of a Cheshire voluntary group. They’re called FLUID, which stands for Freedom 2 Love Ur Identity. They’re a gay rights group working with young people.

They lose points for picking a word that actually has something to do with their aims. (I assume FLUID was chosen because they work with people whose sexuality isn’t rigidly defined.) But they still score highly on the crap-o-meter for the fact that the five words in the acronym don’t really match up with the five-letter word they’re meant to be spelling.

I’ve also just noticed that the abbreviation for the kind of people they work with is now LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning). It’s hard to avoid going into an alternative-sexuality version of the Four Yorkshiremen sketch at this point. In my day it were LGB or nothing, and you were glad of it.
