Talking with a moho friend not long ago, I heard that another moho friend of mine has been using a moho term in a way I had not intended, and now I'm beginning to wonder if he's on to something here. So I'm turning to you, the blogging community, for a little input.
OK, most of us know a moho is someone who is LDS and gay who generally considers their spiritual/religious identity to be more significant in determining their decisions than their sexual orientation. Basically, that's it in a nutshell, if you ask me, which you probably should.
The state or condition of being a moho could be called mohoness. The ever-growing community of mohos, along with our little subculture, can be called mohodom. You get the picture.
One of my moho friends, after enthusiastically adopting this term, extended it some, and he started calling his supportive but "non-challenged" female friends "mohoochies", which they accepted as a term of endearment, as it was intended, of course. Which is good. Nobody wants to upset a mohoochie.
Then he apparently started using the term "mohomies" for hetero guys who are understanding and supportive. I've always used the term just to refer to my moho buddies, but now I'm beginning to wonder...I think both deserve some sort of title, but I'm a little torn regarding to which group I should apply the "mohomie" label. Of course, if the definition of "mohomie" is changed, I may have to rename my blogging identity, but I am willing to make sacrifices for the greater good of mohodom, should there be a consensus to push for it.
And is there an alternative to "mohoochies"? Something... prettier? Kind of like the difference between "fag hag" and "fruit fly"?
Are there any other terms floating around out there you'd like to share with me? I'm all ears. ...eyes. ...whatever.
