I won’t use the description “gay” to describe homosexuals because that means happy or joyful.
If you think the description “homosexual” has lost its sting, try using it in conversation.
It is a realy eyeopener to see how people react to it now.
Which is exactly what the homosexual community wants, but...I won’t play along.
I personally only use homosexual or sodomite. I never call them gay and even if they are “married” I will not acknowledge it. I will say hooked up or “together”.
It also means carefree which refers to them not having to worry about pregnancy.
I’ll only use the PC terms homosexual or gay at work, for obvious reasons. In civilian life they’re still queers
