 Sure as shit ain't a forward.  Isn't "scrum half" short for "scrum half back"?

Could be but they really aren't a back either. They are more of a link between the forwards and backs.

Of course they are a bloody back.

The 'half' doesnt infer they are somehow less of a back.

You have two half-backs - Scrum-half, fly-half

Two thee quarter backs - Wings

One full back - Fullback.

They are a back whose main role is to distribute the ball to the fly half.

you missed out the centers, which are also 3/4 backs.

Summary

Rugby is a game of 15 players

8 forwards - the pack

7 backs - not in the pack (scrum half is one of these)
