The Federal Bureau of Investigation issued a statement saying that it would replace the LGBTQ acronym with the far more inclusive LGBTQIA+ acronym.
An email reportedly from the bureau’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion to all FBI employees was leaked online.
“The FBI has officially adopted the LGBTQIA+ acronym in place of LGBT+. This change was proposed by Bureau Equality, one of our nine Diversity Advisory Committees, and approved by FBI executive management to help promote a more welcoming workplace for members of our LGBTQIA+ community,” read the email.
The email went on to explain what each part of the LGBTQIA+ acronym meant.
“LGBTQIA+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/Aromantic, plus,” the FBI said. “The ‘+’ represents other gender, sexual, and romantic identities not covered by the letters of the acronym.”
In 2021, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was mocked online after he began using the even more inclusive acronym, 2SLGBTQQIA+.
That acronym includes the “two-spirit” designation in addition to all the others.
The email from the FBI claimed that more than 30 federal agencies were to use the expanded acronym, including the Department of Justice.
One instance of the email posted to X, the site formerly known as Twitter, garnered more than 1.2 million views and was widely ridiculed.
“So relieved that when the FBI chases down moms at school board meetings, at least their pronouns will be respected by the officers,” responded Chaya Raichik, the woman behind the Libs of TikTok account.
“Apparently the FBI has 9 diversity committees, no wonder there was nobody available to investigate Hunter Biden,” replied commentator David Marcus.
The email from the FBI concluded saying: “Thank you for your commitment to maintaining diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility as an FBI Core Value.”
