I just consider things in a scientific manner. I don't bring emotions into play when it comes to your sexual preference or orientation. There are four things to me on these topics: Homosexuality, bisexuality, heterosexual, and asexual.
And then when it comes to the persons sex: Male, Female, and intersex.
People like to get all their feathers in a ruffle when it comes to these things because they define themselves by how they feel. By emotion. I'll call you what you want, I won't stop you calling yourself what you want, but a fish is a fish no matter how much it wants to walk on land. (Not counting the fact that fish don't technically exist and is just a generalization of such creatures)
