There was a comment on a Facebook post as follows

'Please XXXX lets not bring Judaism into it. I don't have a problem with gay marriage, as I think if Homosexuals want to be married let them. When it comes to religious institutions, then fine they shouldn't be forced to marry them, but there are amendments in the legislation to help them on this. My main starting point on this is if Homosexuals want to get married let them!'

I asked the guy in question to not use 'Homosexuals' they way he had, because I felt he was dehumanising a little bit.

BUT was I off the mark here? I identify as queer, and if someone kept saying 'If Queers want to marry, let them', it would squick me out.


tl;dr - validation post/ is using the word 'Homosexuals' in that way a bit grim?

EDIT: Guess I was just being a bit too sensitive. Think it was the capitalisation haha.
