Cgl may be the abbreviation for several things, ranging from “Crazy Ginger Leprechaun” to “Caregiver” in a DDLG roleplay.
Another sense was added to the acronym by Conan O’Brien on his show.
He used the abbreviation for “Can’t Get Laid”, parodying the entire abbreviation craze that was still new in the early 2000’s.
Origin of the term
The first Urban Dictionary entries were supporting Conan’s approach on the abbreviation, however with time; other definitions were added as well, including the DDLG one, as well as the “Crazy Ginger Leprechaun” which is used for a mad, short ginger person.
Spread of the term
Nowadays it is mostly used by the DDLG community, whose presence was growing over the years on the internet; the home for all abbreviations.
It should be noted though that the caregiver is not an actual parent in a DDLG roleplay, rather just one of the participants, acting as the parent figure in the whole mascaraed.
