Weort comes from the old word Weortscipe, meaning ‘Worthiness, acknowledgment of worth.’"1

History of the term

Weortsexual was coined on January 11, 2019 by tumblr user nebularomantic. The flag was created at the same time.2
Later that day, after a large amount of pushback, nebularomantic announced a hiatus, deleting the original post and adding:

Before I go
I am going to apologize for helping to coin Weortsexual. I realize now that It is an excuse for an unhealthy relationship.3

This is a very rare example of a MOGAI coiner listening to criticism and taking action to correct an issue.
