Instead of asking someone what their “sexual preference” is, grammarly.com recommends using the more respectful term “sexual orientation”.
Instead of calling someone “homosexual”, grammarly.com recommends using the politically correct and more respectful terms “gay” or “lesbian”.
We need to be careful that the language we use doesn’t offend others. Instead of saying someone is a “housewife” or “househusband”, you can say that someone is a “homemaker”. I like the word!
