I hope I'm not the only one who feels like this...

Does anyone else hate how nobody today seems to know how to use the word "Gay"? I mean, it seems like all people use for anymore is to insult a friend when they do something stupid or awkward, instead of to call them a homosexual. I just think that's not right. I had a kid at my school come up to me the other araw when I was playing air hockey sa pamamagitan ng myself, and he said: "Quit being gay, I'll play with you." He barely even knew me, and he decided to call me that! I'm not gay(see how I actually used the word right?), and I am a strong gay rights supporter, but this whole thing about using this word as a "joke" really makes me angry, and I think it needs to stop. Anyone else feel the same way? I hope so, because I don't want to be alone on this.

You are not alone. Many other people feel the same way as you in this world. Personally, I am not an advocate of the gay lifestyle, but that is just me. I don't have anything against homosexuals. I believe everyone has the right to choose who they want to be with, regardless of the gender. I may not agree with it, but I do accept it.

Being "gay" should not be considered an insult, and people who use the word as an insult are just ignorant and immature. Keep in mind that there are quite a lot of fools who don't know how to use considerate language in today's society. It's just the way people have become. It's a sad concept to think about.

Fortunately, there are people like you that do not agree with the utilization of the word in such an atrocious way. They throw the word around like it's nothing, like it's meaningless, like it has no purpose or value to the people around them. They treat it like it's a toy, a play-thing that can be thrown around willy-nilly in any ibingiay situation.

That is disrespectful and just plain rude behavior. "Gay" is not an insult. In fact, it's quite the contrary. It's a statement, a way of life that people choose for themselves. The argument can be made that it's not a "choice" to be gay, but again, this is my opinion and the way I think. Please respect that.

Once more, I don't agree with the lifestyle, but everyone's choices and opinions deserve to be respected, despite the many people who continue to use the word in such an inconsiderate way.

I agree. It's fine if you don't totally agree with gay culture, but using the word as an insult is not right at all. People don't seem to realize that the word actually DOES have a meaning, and you can't just throw it around like a toy.

I don't used those words anyway.

I knew what the proper meanings of terms are/were but this is not 19th c Britain & they ARE used in that generalized way. If you dislike, simply do not use or associate with those who DO talk like that-that is what I do.

This has been mentioned and discussed several times on here.

It's not just you.
Have you noticed how most of the people who use the word 'gay' in that way are just really immature anyways? I try to steer clear of those people as much as I can. They're very annoying and impossible.

Yes, I've noticed that. I also try to steer away from people like that, but it seems like they're everywhere.

I'll respect your opinion, but not everyone feels that way. Some people, like me, actually take offense to it.

But yeah gay should only be used as a synonym to being happy or homosexual. Community still rocks.

also in the end its just a word that people make into such a negative insult. it doesn't necessarily have to translate that way

Can't lie, I use it sometimes, too. However, I don't use it to insult my mga kaibigan just for the hell of it.

IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY FREAKING SENSE!
"Oh that homework assignment is so gay!"
Is it happy? Is it homosexual? It's an inanimate object, it can't be either!

It's idiotic and childish. I will hear it being used in my school as an insult 10 times a araw and it annoys the hell out of me.

Usually when people say things like "Oh that's so gay!" I will just come right back and say, "No it's straight!" Just to ipakita them how ridiculous it sounds. Thankfully, it works. Because most of the time when people use it they forget what they are really saying and how offensive they sound.

I agree with you. People just don't use the term for it's proper meaning anymore. Just like "gay", the term "bitch" isn't used for it's proper meaning anymore. Gay shouldn't be an insult, but a term to describe a homosexual. That it should be.

Kidding.
But I do find it annoying when people misuse words like that, how they would describe an object or idea as gay or retarded, or how they might call a scene musical even if there is no god damned music.

LaDispute said:
Lol I'm actually gay and I really don't give a fuck.

Yes, it is stupid, I agree, but it's also stupid to care at all tbh. Making a fuss over it just makes people (or madami specifically idiotic immature assholes) want to use it madami to spite the people getting mad which isn't exactly helping gay people get any measure of social acceptance. Getting mad just alienates gay people further. On the other hand, if you let it slide and you don't let it bother you the people using it won't get pissy and everyone's good.

The way I see it, you have to own a word. "Queer" used to be demeaning but we took it and made it our own. The same with "dyke." I'll tell people I'm a dyke with a smile. The same should happen with faggot, because if you own it they can't use it against you. They're just words, right? So just don't give a fuck if people call each other "gay" as an insult and will go away eventually.

That's the way I see it. Just let it go.
