    Those stupid acronyms are relatively new anyway. And who the fuck cares about the GAY part, anyway?

    I suspect the fgotus and gmotus are "First Gentleman OTUS" and "First Man OTUS", not specifying sexual orientation.

    No worries The only reason I suspect it's not referring to gay is because I had a similar discussion back when H. R. Clinton was running, trying to figure out what we'd call Bill.
