I agree, I think it's really offensive to use "gay" to mean "bad." I used to say something snotty when people said it. Now I just ignore/don't associate with people who say it.

I'm lesbian and when I hear people say that, I don't really mind it. If I know it's jokingly. If someones being a jerk about it, then I get a little irritated. I sometimes say it too, but to like my sister or something, but as a joke. So I guess it just depends on the situation and my mood.

It's offensive. I'm straight but I have gay friends and family, and it's just ridiculous to use 'gay' as an insult, there's nothing wrong with being gay. I don't know anyone who uses this in conversation personally, but I've heard it on the radio. People who use use 'gay' as an insult sound really stupid and childish, and I'm bewildered that people would think this would be okay. I don't think it's much different from insulting anything else about someone that they can't change and is just who they are.
