I don't understand why she's so against using denialist as a term. It's simply descriptive of their methods. If they don't want to be called denialists, they simply have to stop alleging conspiracies, cherry picking data, citing fake experts like Monckton or Behe, moving the goalposts and using logical fallacies.

Yes, it's insulting. But it's the behavior that carries the negative implication. No matter what you want to call pseudoscientific bullshit, you're never going to find a name that adequately sugar-coats it, because it's simply bad behavior.
