The correct term is "differently perverted".
The AP Stylebook's entry for gay reads: "Used to describe men and women attracted to the same sex, though lesbian is the more common term for women. Preferred over homosexual except in clinical contexts or references to sexual activity. Include sexual orientation only when it is pertinent to a story, and avoid references to 'sexual preference' or to a gay or alternative 'lifestyle.'"
Of, relating to, or having a sexual orientation to persons of the same sex.
noun Usage Problem.
A homosexual person; a gay man or a lesbian.
USAGE NOTE: Many people now avoid using homosexual because of the emphasis this term places on sexuality. Indeed, the words gay and lesbian, which stress cultural and social matters over sex, are frequently better choices. Homosexual is most objectionable when used as a noun; here gay man and gay woman or lesbian and their plural forms are called for. It is generally unobjectionable when used adjectivally, as in a homosexual relationship, although gay, lesbian, or same-sex are also available for adjectival use. See Usage Notes at gay.
As far as I know the only thing that differentiates homosexuals from heterosexuals is SEX.
Can anyone provide insight beyond more than touting the 'gay' this or that and educate me on just what comprises the "cultural and social" differences which are exclusive to and encompass male and or female homosexuals?
In other words -is there something fundamental that I am not aware of premising the terms 'gay' & lesbian' OR is it simply as I suspect a leftist "usage suggestion" -propaganda pushed by and parroted by both witting and unwitting tools of the left?
LOL! Of course these freaks would insist on "politically correct" speak from their primary benefactors, the MSM.
Just unbelievable the gall of these psychos.
Oh, this is hysterical! Putting lipstick on a pig.
Excuse me, Mr. Spitzer, should you become governor, would you sign a gay marriage bill if it landed on your desk ?
actually this is very serious.
The phrase "preference" was made forbidden by the guardians of homoactivism because preference implied choice.
Propaganda groups like GLADD insist on "orientation" because orientation implies a lack of control.
This opinion is apparently a larger catastrophy than first reported.
Shining the light on the homosexual lifestyle by correctly calling it a "preference" is a serious propaganda loss for the homosexual promoters.
This also points out how the AP is lock step with these deviants.
The shocking aspect is the AP has accepted these promotional word effort of the homosexual propaganda.
if the AP were honest they would adopt the 100% neutral "homosexual" not any other spin words.
Please everyone, do NOT report the news until the "Ministry of Truth" can correct all the terminology.
Wonder if the term "Fudgepacker" is in their media guide?
AHA!! THE State of New York Declares that it is a SEXUAL PREFERENCE!!
Oh for crying out loud... One thing that lawyers have a proclivity for is using the exact proper term when writing.
"Wonder if the term "Fudgepacker" is in their media guide?"
How would you like to have this packing job????
This is why GLADD is having these caniption fits.
These judges(lawyers) used the ACCURATE and PRECISE term for the homosexual lifestyle.
This means a WESTLAW or LEXIS search will come up with "sexual preference" when addressing the issue of homosexual marriage. Make no mistake, this opinion will be reference and will cause language problems for homosexual lawyers.
The have to either use "sexual preference" as the judges in NY or they have to explain WHY they are not using "sexual preference".
The MEME is broken with this opinion.
WHEN this goes to the US Supreme Court. It will be about sexual PREFERNCE not orientation.
All lawyers who write on this issue and those who research this issue have to refer to this opinion's language as written.
It is a DEVASTATING propaganda loss for GLAAD.
Amazing. Lies upon lies upon lies upon...etc.
The word "homosexual" was invented by a homosexual in the 1880s (or 1870s, can't remember) in order to create a sense of special community among those who practiced same sex acts. In Germany, it's in "The Pink Swastika". Before that propaganada term was invented, homosexuals were just called pederasts and sodomites - actually descriptive nouns. So it's gone from "homosexuals" to "gay". Which means squat. Or rather, it used to be an English word with a sound meaning.
Now it's just slithering propaganda.
Well there is the whole dancing in the streets half naked and performing sex acts in the street, thing. You know, those perverted festivals they insist on calling "Pride" They are certainly unique to the homosexual "culture"
