Excellent information, Jim. So many straight people don’t understand or are confused by the new language and acronyms that have appeared in recent years in regards to sexual and gender identity. As you know, I follow LGBTQ news and articles closely and even I am thrown off balance by unfamiliar terms that seem to appear out of nowhere on a regular basis. We need to realize and appreciate that so much of gender and sexual dialog didn’t exist, or at least not in a public way, until recently. The terms are developing as needed.
