This thread is so gay.

Yes, I tend to use it and as others stated, common definitions of words change over time.

I never say it, I never would, and I go off at people for saying it too. I don't stand for it.

Just because something isn't meant as an insult doesn't mean it isn't insulting, and just because you don't find something insulting or wrong doesn't mean someone else doesn't.

Oh God, when people say that, it grates my nerves so much. >> I absoulutely hate it. Whether they mean to offend gay people or not, I think it's totally disrespectful how they just throw the word out without even considering that somebody might find it offensive. I mean, if it was, "That is so Mexican!" instead, I would honestly feel a bit offended.

Uggh, and in Band Camp yesterday, somebody said, "For every awkward moment, a gay baby is born." When my friend laughed at that and agreed, I seriously wanted to hit him upside the head and walk away.

I don't use it. Frankly, it's a stupid saying that's used in the wrong context. My friends say it sometimes, but I always say in response: "Yes, very homosexual," or: "I'm pretty sure it's straight," to emphasise my point. xD

I try not to use it, but it slips sometimes.
I used to say it all the time, so I got really used to saying it. I'm usually real good about not saying it within the past couple years, though.

I would like to point out that I'm offended when people say it despite not being gay myself.

I guess that just goes to show how you can offend someone without meaning to, which is why I don't like it when people say, "That's so gay," so freely. It's like when somebody excessively cusses. They may not be cussing at you, but you still feel offended when you hear it (or at least I do).

I use it, and I don't quite care if people think it's bad. It's not as if I purposely used it to insult gay people, so I don't think they should be offended. I don't use it as an insult, merely as a term.

It's a term which associates something being stupid or crappy with homosexuality. Why should they not get offended?

Just because something isn't meant as an insult doesn't mean it isn't insulting, and just because you don't find something insulting or wrong doesn't mean someone else doesn't.
So what, you're not going to be able to please everybody.

But that doesn't mean you have to disregard them completely. That's no more an excuse to call something gay than it is to use racial slurs.

I don't say it because it sounds stupid no matter which way you look at it.
