The PC faction of the LGBT community wants us to be so sensitive to them that we forego our freedom to disagree. If we don’t, we’re haters. Sensitivity training is being forced on schools and businesses along with a preferred PC vocabulary. The people doing it are not representative of the normal gay community but they are vociferous and they are powerful.
I don’t know about you but the more they force sensitivity training on me, the less sensitive I become.
The Young America’s Foundation (YAF) student organization at George Washington University requested a religious exemption from LGBT sensitivity programming recently. All they asked was that they be allowed to sit out the training and to be exempt from using the “preferred pronouns”. [LGBTs insist that people ask what pronouns to address them by.]
Allied in Pride, an LGBT group on campus, has now labeled YAF a “hate” group, “bigots,” “disgusting,” “gross,” “ignorant,” “intolerant,” a “cesspit” and a “cancer.” Another commenter on their Facebook page said, “These people are ISIS.”
One who is sensitive is not supposed to presuppose someone’s gender, according tot he LGBTs.
The “Allied in Pride Queer Guide” provides a list of preferred “non-binary pronouns,” such as “they/them,” “ze/hir” and “xe/xir.” [They are gender neutral]
The gender neutral pronouns on Wiki:

Most of these liberal and government colleges now have these guides and they have similar training, though not necessarily compulsory.
Sensitivity training undoubtedly includes some of the PC terminology promoted by GLAAD. For instance, “Sex change,” “pre-operative,” “post-operative” are problematic. One must use the word “transition”. Transgender can be an adjective, never a noun. Transgender and transgenderism are no-nos.
LGBT isn’t adequate any longer. At Barnard, they use the term “LGBTQA” and “queer” to represent the community. LGBTQA stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and Allied.
Facebook has 58 gender options or people can select a custom option if theirs is not on the list.
If they want to win us over to their cause, trying to bully people into using their confused vocabulary is not really the way to go.
