Today:
"I identify as queer and cisgender." (Now queer can cover the whole LGBT spectrum, it is for those who don't want to be placed in a rigid category or who aren't sure what non-heterosexual category they fall into.  It is becoming WAY too complicated to talk nowadays.)

As with any generalization, I disagree with some of those but I won't get into it here...

Here's one that actually doesn't apply to me but to some I know.

Our Grandparents:
"That was a terrific book."

Our Parents:
"I'd like to read that if I have time."

Today:
"Can you get that on Kindle?"
