    It is interesting that you think that the G in GILF stands for Girlfriend.

    Hard G, just like in GIF

    Because just like in GIF, the root word is pronounced with a hard G

    Hard g as in "graphics," for the initialism it stands for.

    However, Steve Wilhite, the guy who invented the thing, insists its actually a soft g, like fuckin peanut butter.

    Therefore, the world is a unknowing mess where nothing makes sense, and where meaning cannot ever be found.

    Gilk is pronounced with a soft G, like in Gatorade, the word from which it is derived

    I assume Gilf follows the same principle of inheritance

    gilk is actually Greek (soft g) in origin, from the Greco "jelqus", which means "jelq us"

    Hard G
    This is me posting my regular reminder that how a letter is pronounced in a word has no inherent bearing on how it's pronounced when it's part of an acronym that's also pronounced like a word. Like if that's your personal reason for preferring a certain pronunciation that's fine, but it's not at all an established grammatical rule and it's kind of annoying when people try and use that to justify their personal opinion/preference as "correct". (Not that anyone here is doing that, but I've definitely met people who get really annoying about stuff like gif, even as someone who does pronounce it with a hard g.)

    All's I wanted to point out was that you never specified what the G in "GILF" stood for

    (you sly dog)
