I see the points being made, but I love buggering about with language. It's there to be played with for the right effect, and to interlock with and stimulate everyone else's ideas, not to mimic them exactly.

This is not to say I won't absolutely respect someone else's right to define important elements of their identity - gender, sexuality, and race being specially relevant.

My old definition of myself was 'I'm a gay man in a lesbian's body - subject to change at short notice".

I used that to obfuscate and confuse my sexuality, because I don't really like being labelled. I will use dyke, bi, bi, queer, genderqueer, lesbian, etc, as a convenient shorthand, but in fact the only definition that covers it all is 'my sexuality', and a full account of that will take a couple of hours.
