I was expecting a bunch of PC pansies to clog up the poll, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

No. I don't use that phrase. After being called 'gay' many times myself, I think that the phrase is hurtful and derogatory.

No, I don't, and I never will. I'm a bisexual, after all. Smacking people upside the head when they use it around me is a pastime of mine. However, while I won't use it, and I do sometimes find it offensive, sometimes it's just meant for fun. Gay people can take a joke too. But honestly, nothing good really comes from the term. What's the point of a joke that hurts somebody's feelings?

Yeah, I say it, and honestly, I don't give a **** about it, because it's nothing but a slang term. I'm not intentionally being insensitive to homosexual or bisexual individuals, it's just a phrase.
People need to suck it up and deal with it.

Not since a long time ago. <.< I don't say "That's so retarded" either. Not necessarily just because I'm afraid I'll offend someone, most of the time I just say "That's stupid" or something of the like.

I honestly couldn't care less.

Growing up I was called gay all the time, but I'm comfortable with my sexuality so it's really not a big deal to me.

Seriously, there's no reason to get all worked up about a stupid saying.

I use it sometimes, and nobody I know is offended by it. It's all about the context.
