However, I don't understand why it's seen as insulting. Is it thought of as dismissive?

************* I see two reasons, Mark. First, it is common nowadays to object to any kind of generic labeling of anything
(which ties to your comment about it being dismissive). But since there has to be some way of referring to something, some more vague or politically correct term or phrase is offered up. Second and foremost, it is presently incredibly fashionable to get anally indignant about the smallest trivialities.
