I don’t think “female” is offensive.

I thought it was offensive because some (supposedly female) users said it was offensive; but I didn’t understand why my female friends used the term (female).

I found another saying that it wasn’t offensive, and I immediate copied that belief.

LGBTQ+ politics is confusing …

    but if someone knows how to keep up with the trends let me know.

    Make a mistake, get corrected, and act accordingly. I say this as someone who has made plenty of mistakes and has been corrected plenty of times, and these days I find it easier to keep up with language that evolves. I wouldn’t say it’s an easy way to get cancelled, unless one insists on planting their feet in the dirt and not being willing to budge at all.
