Since James Randi came out today, I'm going to go ahead and do my "defining LGBT" post today, instead of putting it off further.
LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. It also usually includes under it's umbrella people who identify as queer, questioning, bicurious, pansexual, trisexual, hetroflexible, homoflexible, and any other term relating to non-heterosexual sexual orientation and non-typical gender identity.
In this blog I intend to use the terms that people prefer to call themselves whenever possible. When it is unknown what someone's preferred term is, I will use the term that appears to be most applicable.
An exception to this is that hypocritical right-wingers who get caught participating in non-heterosexual affairs will NOT be called by their preferred label, since they are generally lying. In those cases I will use the term that seems to best apply based on their behavior. Usually, this label is "bisexual" since I don't think that having a wife and also homosexual sexual encounters makes one gay.
