I've noticed that people who will talk about how awful and bigoted it is to insult sexuality, gender or race are some of the same people that have no problem with say, insulting appearances. The whole idea of being against bigotry of gays is that they can't help being gay, and has nothing to do with how they are as people anyway. But then the same applies to looks too, you don't choose how you look. It's bigoted to insult skin color too, but not whether or not you think someone's ugly. Why does it have to be bigotry to insult someone's sexuality as long as they aren't actively discriminating against them? I've even noticed it's a bit more acceptable to use things like Down syndrome or autism as insults than faggot, gay or nigger.
