It's not about "nice-sounding words", but accuracy and efficacy. As for accuracy - I pm'd you my view on the matter, and I have pm'd it because I know how very controversial it is at most places. Bottomline, I think it is necessary to look at the whole issue of illicit sex, not single out just one aspect of it. As for efficacy - Calling people stupid, evil, wrong, disordered does not make them smart, good, right or healthy. Using derogatory words just doesn't help. I think the answer to that question will have to consider the intention of the asker and the audience for a reply to it. If what the asker is really after is to show the homosexuals the error of their ways, then the asker should make this clear, instead of trying to force (by means of scientific consensus) or manipulate (with indirect influence strategies) them into change.
