  • It could be anachronism. Gay and Lesbian Anachronism of Mittel-Europa. Or of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, for that matter.

    That image of Bono ain't going away.

  • GLAMÉ! I love it.

    But I am having second thoughts about that "A". I think it might mean "Association" as in "The Gay and Lesbian Association of Mittel-Europa", which would certainly be appropriate to my situation.

  • All the more reason to use it for rolig's organization.

    July 10, 2009

  • Every time I see this word on the front page, I keep mentally pronouncing it "glamé," as in a shortened version of gold lamé, and a disturbing image of Bono comes to mind.

  • I would venture to guess that just about anyone would be against that, wouldn't you say?

    July 10, 2009

  • All most excellent suggestions. I must say my imagination was quite captivated by Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, however. It does seem like something most gays would reasonably oppose.

  • Dontcry, I don't think gays would be against Mamie Eisenhower (we have a thing for First Ladies), and I personally have a soft spot for Mr. Ed (I was just singing his theme song a few days ago). And Maine now lets us marry, so I don't want to be against that state. But I'm overwhelmed by all these excellent suggestions!

    RT, just coming up with an appropriate name would fulfill the entrance requirements, I think (apart from the more obvious ones).

    Or Mount Everest!

  • Middle English! Chaucer is so heteronormative!

    July 9, 2009

  • Actually, friends, this is the name of a new organization I'm starting: Gays and Lesbians Against … but here I can't decide: Mediocre Editing? Marginal Errors? Misguided Euphemisms? Muddled Expressions? Mental Enervation? Midlife Epiphanies? (no, actually, I am for midlife epiphanies) …

    Any other suggestions?
