The use of words will evolve over time, it's just a matter of dealing with it. "Gay" didn't start off pertaining to homosexuals.
Those actually aren't true definitions. that is where the term gay gets mislead. It means homosexual for a male, thats not the slang part. Its slang when used to describe something that is bad. Or when people say oh come on that is so gay when someone doesn't want to do something under peer pressure, or something does go in your favor.

Main Entry: Gay
Function: Adjective
Definition: happily excited : merry "in a gay mood";keenly alive and exuberant ;having or inducing high spirits "a bird's gay spring song".

There is the actual definition of the word "gay". Do you see anything about someone being homosexual? Didn't think so. When it started being used to refer to homosexuals it was a SLANG term.

It was in the Other: Chat section. But a moderator moved it. I think I have the right to shut down my own thread... And you know you're immature when your still talking smack about someone, even though the discussion is over...Lucario.

Oh for the sake of everything good in the world, shut UP! I cannot STAND when people are so ridiculously one-sided that they can't see someone else's point of view. Lucario (no offense), you fit in to that group, so do you rust (no offense) as do MANY OTHER PEOPLE. It's amazing to me that so many people complain about the world being ******, and yet none of them do ANYTHING to fix it except argue over whose point of view is better. Everyone has different point of views, and if people could just accept that and quit trying to BUTT IN on people's PRIVATE LIVES, then things would go so much better.

Problem is, there are terrorists in this world, and there are murderers, rapists, and ********. All that you guys are doing is adding to the negativity, and it's because of this, or people making fun of other people, or people trying to control other people, that people feel the need to kill other people (like Columbine or the Virg. Tech shootings). It makes me terribly sad that people can't just get along and see that if they just GOT ALONG that maybe things would go a bit better? The world isn't about Democrats and Republicans. It's not about Religious people and Atheists. It's not about race, it's not about gender, it's not about sexual orientation, it's not about background, IT'S NOT ABOUT ANYTHING LIKE THAT! All that they world is about is that EVERYONE IS HUMAN. We are all people, we all think, feel, eat, drink, go to the bathroom, get diseases, cry when we're sad, laugh when we're happy, think about others, experience greed, have dreams and hopes, make bad decisions and good decisions, and SO MANY OTHER THINGS. Sometimes it honestly makes me feel alone in that so many people are so ridiculously STUPID that they can't see the god damn power of POSITIVITY! There isn't a single world problem that wouldn't be helped by positivity, and there isn't a single one that wouldn't be hurt by negativity. You people need to realize that and quit acting like idiots.

There shouldn't be "differences", there shouldn't be "parties". The only party there should be is the "human" party. That, or the "positive" party.[/rant end]

Not to derail it, but did anyone else try to find a secret message in the capped words in Charbok's post? D:

Thank God for those of you that joke; it's the people that flip out all the time that get me. Thank you for the laugh Fire Away, and try to watch the curse words Charbok, bad mood or not :P.

Anyways, if you can't argue your points in a mature, non-aggressive, way then don't post in a discussion thread. Discussions are for people to share their opinions and knowledge. If you find yourself getting emotional over it then don't post it up. Be kind to other people's opinions, and if you have different beliefs then refute them with facts, not anger.

Though I don't know why I'm saying this because if you don't understand the rules of the board and how you should behave you shouldn't be posting here. The problem isn't the thread so no, I won't close it, but I will watch it and if I see more senseless arguments and whatnot then I'll have to lay down my not-as-impressive-as-I'd-like infractions.

BTW those of you with the 'OMG YOU ARE IMMATURE BECAUSE YOU ARE STILL POSTING' should take a look and realize that by posting that they are just as immature. Someone mature would be able to drop it.

Cheers. And thanks for those of you who actually discussed the topic.

P.S.: You're the Agent to my Los Muertos, Painkillah.

Yes those were excellent posts by both Dr Scottie To Hottie and Charboka just discuss the topics don't attack people because they're different but honestly I think that we have covered most of what we can for the time being about the word gay and its meaning.

This thread is now in the correct place. All the more it shouldn't be locked/closed. Besides, this is the kind of thread which has a lot of different points of views such that there'll always be something new and relevant. It shouldn't be closed unless there's a prolonged flame war. And there seems to be none.


On-topic: I think it has been so overused nowadays that not many people care about it now, other than the homosexuals. As time passes and they are accepted into the society, that will change, too, and by then nobody will care.
