Wesleyan University creates all-inclusive acronym: 'LBTTQQFAGPBDSM'

No, it’s not a drunk text. It's just the latest all-inclusive acronym, brought to you courtesy of Wesleyan University's Office of Residential Life.

The long string of letters stands for: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, genderf--k, polyamourous, bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism.

The abbreviation appears on the university's program housing website with an advertisement for ''a safe space for [LBTTQQFAGPBDSM] communities and for people of sexually or gender dissident communities.''

Wesleyan University, located in Middletown, Connecticut, made headlines last week after Delta Kappa Epsilon, a traditionally all-male fraternity, filed a lawsuit charging the school with ''sexual discrimination and false and deceptive practices'' after the administration mandated that all frats admit women.
