I'm in a Facebook group about this.

I find it offensive when people use sexuality as an insult. When my friends say it I say "No, it's just dumb" or "What does that word 'gay' have to do with it?" or when they call someone "Gay" I say "What's wrong with being gay?".

Do you correct people? Does it bug you? Discuss!

i think you are overdoing it.

i have a very good friend who is gay and he uses it ALL THE TIME!

i think its just horrible, that some people are WAITING for some words to be sayed, to get agitated. like "thats so gay" or anything that COULD be against black people. or in germany ANYTHING that COULD be against judes or has anything to do with the 3rd reich.

its a matter of speak! why do you have to put so much meaning in everything?
are you trying to make yourself and other people more problems than you solf by your OVER correctness?

other exemple : OH MY GOD --> many people say here "oh my gosh" or stuff like that..WHY?? its meaningless...jsut becouse it COULD hurt some fanatics...

so stop beeing so gay

I'm just saying that it offends me, I'm not waiting for it to be said. And calling ME gay won't make me stop, in fact it's just rude.

i did not call you gay ^^ it was just a metter of speach.
i could say "stop beeing oversensetiv"....but gay was just shorter. and you must admit that everyone knows when its used like this what is meant.

i mean.everone here knows how to deal with people...and everyone can nderstand maters of speach..not everything that is sayed means EXACTLY what is sayed ^^

I say it. It annoys me when people go on about it. I'm not saying "OMG THAT'S SO HOMOSEXUAL!!1!!!1!!!11!!". The word "gay" didn't even mean homosexual way back when. Why is it okay for people change the meaning to homosexual but not something along the lines of stupid?

One day, someone coined the word Homosexual. (Guy loving guy)
One day, someone coined the word "Gay". (Happy)
One day, someone coined using the word "Gay" to mean "Homo".

One day, not so long ago, someone decided to coin the word "Gay" to mean "Stupid".

Saying "Stop saying gay to mean stupid" is like saying "Stop saying gay to mean Homo".

I don't think it's rude. Of course, I can see where you're coming from. I liked the video.

THanks :mcglee:
I know some homosexuals and bisexuals that find it very offensive.
And some people that I know that say "Gay" as an insult mean it as the sexual preference, like calling someone gay, or a "homo", because they think that being a homosexual is a bad thing, which is stupid.

I know a few homosexual people, and I know that they do NOT feel offended by the saying "This is so gay", I even have a gay friend who uses it all the time himself.
These people know that, people don't use this phrase to discriminate homosexual people, so they do not mind.
I am sorry if there are people offended by this (I don't use this phrase myself by the way), but I think people who are offended by this saying should be aware of the fact, that it is simply not meant in an offensive way.
