“references to sexual activity”

”Gay is approved for copy and preferred over homosexual, except in clinical references or references to sexual activity.”

Erik Wemple, Washington City Paper editor, quoting a Washington Times memo that marks changes in the newspaper’s policies, including no longer putting quotes around ”marriage” when between two people of the same sex. The Times editorial desk confirmed the change. (Washington City Paper)
