comment How to specify the letter O, not a zero
Thank you. I will go with this: In the text box, enter "O1" (the letter O, followed by the number 1).

@Jim can you make this an answer so I can accept it?

This won't help. Until the reader sees a zero with a diagonal line, she doesn't know that the font has a slash. Only a typography expert would be able to see "O1" and know for sure that it begins with the letter O.

comment Hypernym for “boys only”, “girls only”, and “co-ed”
I've learned that 'gender' is strictly a linguistic term, describing the gender of nouns, adjectives, etc., and that 'sex' is correct for humans and other living creatures.

comment English word for taking a derogatory term and owning it with pride
Great question. There are many instances of this... impressionist, know-nothing, Yankee, tree-hugger, redneck, Obamacare, pimp... These terms deserve a grouping.

comment How do you describe a person who loves everything natural when it comes to health and food?
Organictarian is gaining traction but has not yet appeared in dictionaries. It would satisfy the "organic food" portion of your question.
