Words that are HOMOPHOBIC and WHY
Homophobia. Prejudice against (fear or dislike of) homosexual people and homosexuality
You're such a fag! Whether or not identifies as gay, calling them a "fag/faggot" can be extremely offensive. It should not be used as a joke or without consent.
That person doesn't really look like a man/ woman. It should not be assumed that all gays strived to be feminine or be a cross-dresser and Trans men strived to be masculine. Gender presentation is fluid and distinct from gender identity and all forms of gender expression deserve affirmation.
What's your name when the night comes out? This implies the person's gender identity and chosen name are not "real" and bears on the idea of Homosexuals as deceptive.
Using the wrong pronouns or making assumptions about others' gender identities. It is vital that we respect the names and pronouns that people prefer. It is impossible to know without asking. If you're not sure, ask "What are your preferred pronouns?"
Asking others about Transperson's identity. It is inappropriate. Ask yourself why you want to know. If you're concerned about using the person's preferred pronouns, ask them directly.
