That person who you mentioned is an advocate for transgender rights, and those two places that were just listed are LGBTQA businesses. So of course there would be an "okay" for the language to be used by those in the community itself which is really pushing it since there's a lot of transphobia in the LGBTQA community still. However the general usage outside of the specific community should really be stopped or at least contained.
It's the same way with racial and/or stereotyping. If you're around a group of friends from another ethnicity than yours and they use language that is perceived as offensive to their ethnic group (by the use of those outside of that group); that doesn't mean that the language is no longer offensive and it doesn't make it "okay" for you to use it too just because your friends are using it.
