Thanks for recognizing the word's origins and derogatory meaning. I don't find the word Homosexual offensive I don't find the word Lesbian (L) offensive. I don't find the word Gay (G) offensive. I don't find the word Bisexual (B) offensive I don't find the word Transgender (T) offensive I do I find the word Queer (Q) offensive. Especially if it is used apart from the other words as if there is a separate category of Queergender And what the (+) stands for is completely beyond me. Plusgender ? My criticism does not imply "privilege", it implies freedom of speech and choice of terms.
