Similarly, the guide advises journalists to avoid the use of the term "sexual preference" and instead use "sexual orientation."

Oh, that's right. They have no control over their preference, right?

The Journalistic Stylebook of Homosexuality

The Current Stylebook Supplement of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association notes that the words ‘dyke,’ ‘fag,’ ‘faggot,’ and ‘queer,’ are “now being reclaimed,” by some homosexuals but advises that the words are “still considered offensive when used as an epithet.”

Absent from the supplement is a primary definition for ‘heterosexual.’
