I've noticed a lot of LGBT organisations (LGBT Helpline and BeLonGTo for example) have redefined homosexuality as being same gender attracted rather than same sex attracted. What are people's thoughts on this? I've always seen being gay as same sex attracted and I will continue to do so, as that what it is for me. I understand that this change in definition is a means of being inclusive but in doing so it will surely alienate/exclude others.

I would probably default to same sex but same gender is not beyond my comprehension should I ever encounter it.

Well, you are attracted to someone of the same Gender and I think Sex was the wrong word to use for it. Gender- M F, Sex- M F and I believe that is how it should be.

That isn't the meaning here though. Sex is male or female. Gender is identity. For clarity, the "new definition" means that you're attracted to a person's gender, regardless of what their sex is.

Sex is the act, Heterosexual, having sex with someone of the opposite Gender and Homosexual would be having sex with someone of the same Gender. Maybe I'm wrong?

I don't mean to be rude but you are wrong in this instance. Gender and sex are not interchangeable. Sex, of course, does mean the act of sexual intercourse, but it is the biological term for male or female. Gender is how a person identifies.

They were interchangeable at one point but not anymore.

How are people alienated or excluded?

If you're only same sex attracted and not same gender attracted. If your sexual orientation is only towards the same sex.

For me, I'm not interested in vaginas at all, regardless of who they're attached to. I only like men with a penis, hence I'm same sex attracted. Without getting into hyperbole, I'm just a bit concerned that "sex" is being removed from sexuality.

Same sex attracted...and I suppose same gender attracted. Just an ol'fashioned gayer here...

...the world's getting so bloody confusing with all this cis-, non-binary etc etc..

I really dont understand your point. Nobody is redefining you or your sexuality. Nobody is telling you that you must now be interested in vaginas or trans men or non binary people.

Well if they're redefineing what homosexuality is then it does impact me and everyone else who is only same sex attracted.
