Yeah, I'll dig thru that.
I compare it to this: You walk into an eatery and order a "Hamburger and fries". They say "We call it a Beefburger and Spuds but it's the same thing." You throw a fit and eventually walk out. Make sense?
IF it was the same thing except with a different term, what's the problem?
I actually know but that's why the gay community is getting the pushback.
It's quibbling over a term. When a kid screams for a toy that the parent was going to buy anyway, that parent needs a punch in the gut for buying it at that very moment. You don't reward "bad" behavior because it conditions the child to believe that's the way to get something. Applying it to this, you don't oil the squeaky wheel because it will only squeak again over something else just as meaningless.
