"LGBT” stands for “Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender” and began to be popularly used in the 1990s. “Op-Ed: We Are Under Attack by the LGBTPed Community” by Rabbi Yair Hoffman was published in The Yeshiva World on January 15, 2014. “Ped,” for “pedophile,” was added to the popular initialism. “Rabbi Calls for Resistance to LGBTPed Agenda” was published on the blog Moonbattery the following day.
“LGBTPed” immediately came under criticism for being highly offensive. Asher Lovy wrote on January 16, 2004:
“The ‘Ped’ part, though, is an abbreviation of ‘pedophile.’ Pedophile. Pedophile. That term was used continuously throughout the piece, and in the comments section, people were congratulating this Rabbi Hoffman for his wit in coming up with that bit of brilliant wordplay. It hurt so much I cried.”
LGBT is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. In use since the 1990s, the term is an adaptation of the initialism LGB, which itself started replacing the term gay when in reference to the community beginning in the mid-to-late 1980s, as many felt the term gay community did not accurately represent all those to whom it referred. The initialism has become mainstream as a self-designation and has been adopted by the majority of sexuality and gender identity-based community centers and media in the United States and some other English-speaking countries. It is also used in some other countries in whose languages the initialism is meaningful, such as France
The initialism LGBT is intended to emphasize a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures and is sometimes used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.[ To recognize this inclusion, a popular variant adds the letter Q for those who identify as queer and/or are questioning their sexual identity as LGBTQ, recorded since 1996.

Op-Ed: We Are Under Attack by the LGBTPed Community
(Wednesday, January 15th, 2014)
[By Rabbi Yair Hoffman - Published In 5TJT]
It is said that Machiavelli was the first to recommend it, but the old adage of “the best defense is a good offense” has been adapted wholesale by the LGBTPed community, and New York State is next.
The LGBTPed community is in high gear and it appears that the religious communities are way behind the eight-ball.
“We Are Under Attack by the LGBTPed Community:” My Response
JANUARY 16, 2014
“We Are Under Attack by the LGBTPed Community.” That was the headline of an op-ed written by a Rabbi Yair Hoffman, originally printed in the 5 Towns Jewish Times, and shared online by Yeshiva World. For those who may not know what the “LGBT” part of that initialism means, it stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender. The “Ped” part, though, is an abbreviation of “pedophile.” Pedophile. Pedophile. That term was used continuously throughout the piece, and in the comments section, people were congratulating this Rabbi Hoffman for his wit in coming up with that bit of brilliant wordplay.
It hurt so much I cried. Seeing that caused me physical pain. Survivors of abuse and LGBT people will understand, but to those of you reading this who may not understand, it’s a play on the unfortunately common misconception that because pedophiles often target little boys, and gay people are sexually attracted to the same sex, gay people must have a higher chance of being pedophiles, despite the overwhelming amount of evidence proving otherwise.

Rabbi Calls for Resistance to LGBTPed Agenda
Jewish moonbats in the government/education/media ruling class have inflicted terrible harm on our country, but Jews who take their religion seriously share a foundation with Christians. This makes them enemies of moonbattery, the disease that is destroying us. One example is Rabbi Yair Hoffman of New York, who sounds the alarm on morally rudderless politicians who are willing to pander to the pink fascists of what he calls the LGBTPed community:
This is the first time we’ve ever heard the term “LGBTPed.” (The Ped stands for Pedophile.) Gross. http://5tjt.com/we-are-under-attack-by-the-lgbtped-community/ …

How disappointing of the @5tJt to publish such a disgusting article. Using the term “LGBTPed” absurd. http://5tjt.com/we-are-under-attack-by-the-lgbtped-community/ …
