uh actually dont? yell at hets for using words like datemate and partner?

because there is always a chance that one of them is a closeted trans person and they’re trying to not misgender them while also not outing them

and normalizing gender-neutral language makes doing that safer anyway

literally the entire point of lgb people using words like “partner” is that they don’t out us. in order for this to be true, straight people have to use them too.
