I am trying to have a civil conversation but its next to impossible to keep up with what terms are forbidden.

The word "lifestyle" is used in a derogatory sense (when compared to "life").
"nornal" (fill in the normative behaviour) people have a "life", whereas those who divert from that norm are considered having a "lifestyle".
