Gay is not a synonym for something/someone that is not doing what you'd like it to.

It is a term used to label a sexually orientation, as soon as people understand this, we can live in a pro Gay/bisexual world.

As people are using the term "Gay" for things mentioned earlier, it gets negative connotations, people that use it now will pass it onto there kids who will believe it's just a term for things that are not doing what they should be. Thus, creating a child which believe being Gay is not right.

True, they can't reproduce..But they can adopt. And yes, Lucario, they do complain about equality, because they're constantly, CONSTANTLY made fun of, and treated UNEQUALLY. Open your eyes and see the truth. Maybe you do and maybe you don't. I'm just saying, simply, that it's ridiculous. Why are they so different from the rest of everyone? They're human. And it even says in the Constitution that "all men are created equal", yet they aren't. They same goes for African Americans, Chinese, ANYONE who isn't classified as "a true American". It's just...senseless.

Are the majority of you all idiots? Can you not get it through your thick skulls that when pertaining to a sexual preference "gay" is a SLANG term? The appropriate term would be "homosexual". The word "gay" has been used for hundreds of years, longer than when it applied to homosexual people. The meanings of words evolve, deal with it.

What are you smoking? Society in general is more accepting of homosexuality than its ever been. There will always be people who disagree with your ideas, but that doesn't mean that they hate you. o_o

Am I missing something? You group people together and imply that there's something special about their sexual preference (hint: there's not) and then say that everyone should open their eyes and realize we're all human. So which is it?

You're right that people are people, and homosexuals can be just as good and just as bad as anyone else.

I'm not 'gay', because I do have a girlfriend (and if you don't believe that, gtfo), but I don't see why homosexuals should be treated differently to straight people.

Just cause I've said this doesn't mean I am gay, but I don't have a problem with homosexuals. I treat them the same as everyone else.

But, I do accidentally use the word 'gay' as an insult, and I don't notice I'm doing it sometimes. I know it's stupid to use it in such a manner, and I don't mean to offend any gay people (I don't know any irl.) At school, I tend to use different words that I steal from shows like South Park. =O

Here's a little quote from Lord Lucario. Just to start things off.


Notice the picture and the bolded word. The word "gay" is perhaps the most hurtful, overused, NEGATIVE, CRUEL, and annoying word used to this day. I myself am bisexual, and when I hear that word every single day, it just...as Peter Griffin says...Grinds my gears. I hear it from the mouth of only ONE type of person. Literally. Probably more. But, I mainly hear it come from the mouths of jocks. If anyone has a say in this, please, go ahead. SAY IT!
Hmmm.

1. Don't watch Family Guy. Just... don't.
2. There are worse words than that. The "n-word" is more hurtful, overused, NEGATIVE, CRUEL, and annoying than that.
3. Unless someone is flaming a homosexual or bisexual, don't take it seriously. I use it as an adjective for many things, but not for hate. I call something that I think is stupid or retarded gay. As in:
"Hey man, they just banned us from going to the party."
"Dude, that's sooo gay."
4. I don't hate homos or bis, but I use the word.
5. Jocks are only about 20% of the people who use the word.
6. Don't watch Family Guy, or quote it in a serious discussion to prove your point.

You don't see anyone saying 'I met a straight', so I don't think you should say 'I met a gay'. :x

I have nothing against people who are 'gay', but I do believe that the term has evolved too rapidly. 'Gay' to mean 'happy/joyful' was always remain the true meaning, so basically, whenever you say 'This pencil is so gay', you're saying 'This pencil is so happy'.

And PainKiller, I think you can find other ways to argue your point that insulting people ^^;

No, that is not what you're saying. If it were in some nonsensical context, then maybe, but the way that most people use that word, especially when referring to an object, means stupid, bad, etc.

That's what they want to say. Not what they're are technically saying.

I just don't see the point. I rarely use slang, just use stuff like 'quid', 'stack it', stuff like that (yeah, even if they're not frequent where you are, they are here). Is it so hard to use 'stupid'. Oh no, it's one extra syllable! So much work! :x

I don't like the thought of banning words or avoiding using them because we have all explained that when the word gay is used it's not intended to offend anyone it's just one of those words that gets thrown around all the time and it's not going to stop.

Do you realize how ridiculous that is? Are you saying that every time you say one word has more than one meaning, you only mean one thing? If I were to say "stop making such a racket", I actually mean "stop making such a object I hit a ball with!"

Language changes. You can't dispute that.
