SETA

See Seta for a concept in biology
SETA (Seksuaalinen Tasavertaisuus RY, Sexual Equality) is the main GLBT rights organisation in Finland. The current President of Finland, Tarja Halonen was a chairwoman of SETA before her presidency. This caused few confusions about her sexual orientation, even leading to one run-in with the Westboro Baptist Church. However, SETA was not established as a "gay organization", but as a "organization for gay rights", and the human rights lawyer Halonen, despite being bisexual, was a natural choice for the chair.

A seta is a stiff hair, bristle, or bristle-like process or part of an organism. The plural form is setae.

In plants (i.e., botanical terminology), "seta" is synonymous with bristle—a stiff, strong hair or trichome. The term can also be applied to a modified hair-like structure, such as a pappus: a modified calyx in the Asteraceae.

Setae on their footpads are responsible for the gecko's ability to cling to vertical surfaces.

Setae help earthworms attach to the surface and prevent backsliding during peristaltic motion. These hairs are what make it difficult to pull a worm straight from the ground.

Setae on the legs of krill help them to gather phytoplankton.
