I don't expect anyone to have blanket acceptance of me. I am not at all offended by people who feel as if being Gay is not ok. However I take offense at the term "lifestyle". While the person using it may not understand why it's offensive, it highlights their ignorance of the issue. NO ONE who is trying to understand LGBT folks would use that term; it conveys her ignorance as someone who has not bothered to read or hear 'from the horses mouth' WHO they are and what that means.
Pretty much the same way people are offended when they hear, "All Black people live in the ghetto". This statement conveys pure ignorance.
Have you figured out that I consider this person to be ignorant about LGBT people, much less LGBT issues? That's what I take offense at. Don't talk about me if you're not trying to learn about me.
