Excessively-detailed nomenclature has nothing to do with "freedom".

[I hope you can take a lot more because we would not want your contributions to devolve into some bizarre passive aggressive fandango. Just as we, in "simple" times, hoped folks could "take" the fact that we were not going to stay in the closet any more even as they bristled at our "freedom."]

Trying hard to parse this reply. It's tough.

I don't think you attempted to answer my question about what the switch in pronouns means? Why is she "she" one minute and "they" the next?

It's not the fighting for rights that is irritating: it's the self-satisfied embrace of trendy and fashionable expressions and nomenclature and the smirking judgement of anyone who can't wrap their head around this week's newest acronym. Yes, language changes but "gay" served us well for forty years, whereas today's expressions have a Warholian shelf life of 15 minutes.

Now I'm off to my passive aggressive fandango lesson!
