Gay.com is stepping into the “LGBT” debate, suggesting that the acronym — with all of the letters that keep getting added — has become so diluted, it's tough for anyone to identify with.

Then along came the transgenders and suddenly we had LGBT — or as I’ve heard it called, the “Gay BLT.” But once it became a multi-layered sandwich, there was no stopping it. And the more it grew, the harder it became to swallow. And identify with. The more groups it represented, the further away from my experience it drifted.”
