I actually didn't read this thread as being about sexual orientation, transition between genders or anything related. I actually have no strong views on any of that because I regard it as individually personal. I read it as being about the modern trend to indulge in verbal gymnastics in the hope that offence can be avoided to anyone reading/hearing what is said. That is an impossible task anyway because in today's world we seem to have bred individuals who are perpetually offended.
Interacting with other humans is a basic need and without it the species would never have evolved beyond its humble beginnings. If every word uttered has to be carefully weighed to ensure that it cannot be misconstrued or deliberately given a meaning that was not intended then worthwhile exchanges become much harder. The very concept of "hate speech" which is a very recent addition to our legislation, and, in England at least, hands the power of judgement on whether something said breaches that prohibition to any individual who hears it, even if not the person to whom the remark was directed, was a watershed moment for free speech. Legislation that protected people from deliberately offensive or insulting remarks where they may lead to a breach of the Peace already existed, but had sufficient safeguards that it didn't constrain the right to free speech, even if it unintentionally offended. Free speech, within traditionally understood limits, matters and should be protected not constrained. That includes the right, again within traditionally understood limits, to offend.
Sorry if that opinion offends anyone.
