Note: Many of the essays linked to this menu were initially written many years ago and
continually updated since with new data. Many use the term "homosexual" as one of three

It is not intended to be a derogatory term here, and in the rest of this web site.
We use the term in its medical sense, like heterosexual and bisexual.
In new essays we will use terms like lesbian, gay, LGB, and LGBT.
