From disqus.com:

Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual(and Agender), Ally, Pansexual, Polysexual, and Kink

Oh. Well, that clears that up.

A number of years ago, I was introduced to the acronym “POSSLQ”. It was an attempt to describe your roomie when you were too old to call her your “girlfriend”, but you had as yet not made an honest woman of her. It was also an attempt to describe a non-marital relationship when employers started offering benefits to your roomie, provided you and your roomie had the habit of sharing bodily fluids—it stood for “Person of the Opposite Sex Sharing Living Quarters” and was pronounced POSSLQ (just like it's spelled). Took a little getting used to, but it paid homage to the concept of opposite sexes. It covered the question of a relationship where someone does your laundry for you at no cost.

I know I most likely shouldn't ask, but what is the opposite of “genderqueer”, or “kink”? No, that's not a real question. Even if you prefer the term “complementary sex” over “opposite sex”, it's still impossible to pin down. Like trying to nail Jello to a tree.  

I really don't mind. Call yourself whatever you want. Just don't get offended if I 1) Call you “ma'am” when you look like a “ma'am”, or 2) Can't tell. I come in peace. I mean no harm.
