Circular gay terminology

Emo Phillips was standing before a judge…

Judge, “Emo?”
Emo, “Yes.”
Judge, “Emo Phillips?”
Emo, “Yes.”
Judge, “You’re Emo Philips?”
Emo, “Well why don’t you just keep adding a word each time until your brain explodes!”

I remember a day when there were were just “queers”. Then it was “lesbians and gays”. Then those crazy bisexuals had to jump on the bandwagon. Of course, if bisexuals were doing it, then the transsexugenered folks were just steps behind. Now it’s those wile intersexed people! Pretty soon, it’ll go from being the “LGBTI community” to… queer.

    I once belonged to a synagogue that went that way. It started out as the gay synagogue, then the gay and lesbian synagogue, then the synagogue for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and trangendered people and their supporters. It has now gone back to “founded by members of the gay community” (true, since its first members were all gay males).
