No.

That public service commercial probably won't change my mind about it.

Anyways, saying "that's so gay" just means "that's so happy". And even if you actually put it the way it's supposed to be put, that's offensive. Just replace gay with black, jewish, asian or hispanic. Doesn't it seem so much more offensive?

*waits for poll*

@Kendo: You forgot 'That's so merry'. ^_^

I don't ue that phrase as often, but seeing someone say it is funny.

I do. If I was always around someone who actually was gay I probably wouldn't use it, but I hear the phrase 2933739274048590489232 times a day so it gets to be a habit.

I don't use it, partially because it can be hurtful to others, partially because it's just stupid.

Of course I do. There are people that I know who say they don't but I've seen them say it and they're just being a hypocrite.

Same here. People don't try to catch themselves nowadays. xD

I used it a while ago because I thought I'd be cool (true, I feel like an idiot looking back than though...). Now I feel like a jackass for saying that though. Also the phrase "You're such a retard..." I don't hate to hear because I guess you could technically classify my friend as a "Retard"... (assuming you're using it in a way someone thinks or whatever)

I don't use it, and I don't think it's right for me to use it, but it depends on who is uses it.

Yes I say it. Definitions change, and you're not meaning it in a derogatory way toward gay people.

Yeah, it's kind a bad habit. :/ Everyone says it at my school, though. I wouldn't use the phrase if a homosexual was nearby.

That commercial thing made me want to say it more, actually.

Political correctness blows.
