It's all in the words

No wonder why opponents of LGBT people use the word homosexual instead of gay or lesbian.  Look at the results of this CBS poll that uses the word gay for one group and homosexual for another.  In both surveys, the use of the words gay men and lesbians produced greater support for LGBT people serving in the military.  Words matter, and opponents of LGBT rights are keenly aware of this.   (H/T: Joe.My.God)
