Sorry, my mistake, forget what I just said. I forgot I actually hate you.

The use of "gay" as a general pejorative originated in the '70s and became widespread among young people. It's an extension of "gay" in the homosexual sense. For many, "gay" was a term you applied to certain people you disapproved of. Its use then got extended to anything you disapproved of.

When a gay kid in a schoolyard hears his classmates say "Oh, that's so gay!" about something they want to put down, what do you think goes through his mind? You can argue till you're blue in the face that there's no connection, but of course there is. And the connection isn't lost on the kid.

Think about this: "Atheist" is a term that strikes terror in the hearts of a lot of people. Calling someone an atheist is, in many circles, a major insult. Suppose the term got extended in the same way young people have extended "gay," as a general pejorative. So when someone sees something icky, anything at all, they could respond, "That's so atheist!" Suppose when questioned about the term, they answered, "I have nothing against atheists. I don't hate them. It's just the way we use the word today." Do you think you'd be fine with that?

Both of you:

Sorry Ferdy. I love you. You're the light of my life. You're like oxygen to me. I would trade the world for five minutes of your time.

I still think you're gay though. Big Grin

Dammit, so close, one day I'll be nice to you without ruining it at the end. For now though the wait continues.......

It's not hateful and it can be used to include homosexuality in a conversation in a non-threatening way. It can even help people come out "jokingly", which can be easier in some circumstances.

THIS IS A THREAD ABOUT GRILLED CHEESE

HOW DOES ONE TURN A THREAD ABOUT CHEESE TOASTY INTO A THREAD ABOUT VERBALLY HARMING GAYS

HOW

I CANNOT Shocking

I'm sorry I used the word but for the sake of cheese toasty it's not a big deal.

Well to be fair your country is responsible for the spread of Racism in the world and the rise of Victorian morality so you English have a lot to answer to. After all that calling a grilled cheese sandwich a cheesy toast is almost enough to warrant nuclear eradication. Thumbsup
