I'm divided on this. On one hand I think context outweighs content, but on the other I don't understand self-censoring in this instance. If you aren't comfortable saying something in front of another...

Yeah, I didn't really word any of what I said well. What I should have said was that 'sexual preference' can be seen as offensive because it is often used to suggest choice (albeit subtly), not...

There's several definitions of preference, one being 'that which is preferred; choice:' or 'someone or something so chosen.'

When you've had the word 'preference' thrown at you it becomes...

The term 'sexual preference', while it may be correct, can be offensive because it implies choice. Orientation is the better term.

Did someone really just describe homosexuality as a sexual preference? Really?

Quite frankly I'd find that more offensive than someone using 'gay' as a substitute for shitty.

Urgh Serena. Dissapointing. Here's hoping Fed wins this so I have something to be happy about. Haha.

His solo record is shaping up to be amazing. Jonsi and his boyfriend may just be the most talented couple in the industry.

I totally agree. I can't say I'm a fan. He definitely comes across as somewhat arrogant and over confident. Some of that is probably because he's young and doesn't quite know how to carry himself in...

And over four hours later Gasquet is out. Pity they only aired the last game. Why they bothered showing part of the Tsonga match which finished hours ago instead is beyond me. Man our coverage sucks...
