LOL, it`s great when they mess up on the news!

They don`t have to sound alike to get mixed up. Their both similar negative things. Being gay is not normal just as being blind is not normal.

Lol, it`s too funny, it`s not that she got the words confused, it`s just that people find it weird that men who are gay can actually lead normal lifestyles, so she said it by accident...pure typo! Funny stuff....

*sigh* There was nothing wrong with the teleprompter. She did not confuse the word "blind" with "gay".

My theory is that when she placed the emphasis on the word "but" she brought to her consciousness the different alternatives to usual lifestyles people at large are accustomed to. And as soon as she said "he`s" she applied her train of thought to stigmas against men. Hence, gay.

"Blind. I said blind."

"Now remember, I know we do all those things about people who are gay and what they do seems better because they shag other blokes and laydeez, but this guy is special. He climbed Mount Everest and he`s blind. Not gay, blind. Don`t say GAY because he`s BLIND."
"Is he gay anyway?"
"I dunno, but he`s BLIND and he climbed Everest."
"On his own?"
"No his Labrador took him. He nearly got blown off once or twice though."
"Off another guy?"
"No retard I meant blown off the mountain."
"The mountain`s gay?"
"stfu n00b. It was windy up there. Point being, just don`t say he`s gay, ok?"
"Why not?"
"Because the story is, he`s blind and he climbed a frigging mountain."
"Did he have those glare goggles for the Sun reflecting off the snow?"
"Why in Hell does that matter?"

Howcome gay is an insult? You automatically feel bad for anyone called gay. Society these days... its horrible. And you would think that the older people on here would have more experience and would know better then to laugh at this issue. But heck, I laughed. ^_^
"We interviewed a man who climbed the highest mountain ever, Mt. Everest. But.... hes gay!"
LMAO
Now-a-days tho, I wouldnt be surprised if she really meant it. And it was meant to be like that. People treat other people so wrong just because of their likes and dislikes. Wtf...
But anyways, it was funny. I laughed. Added to my favs. Rated 3. Showed off to friends. Haha.
8-)
Okay welp that make one laugh in my day. Woo woo.

Are you trying to say that gay people can`t be awesome or that gay people aren`t allowed to come to your school and talk to you? If that is what you`re trying to say than I think that`s kind of a gay thing to sa-- I mean ignorant, it`s an ignorant thing to say.

"Now lets take a look at the weather. If we switch over to the national map we can see a large warm front coming in from the northeast. This could produce some serious storms, and if you live in the valley, you may even see some golf ball sized hail. So if you`re out and about tomorrow, be careful, I wouldn`t want any balls hitting you in the face."

This could be fun.

"This morning, there was an accident on Highway 36 where a tractor trailer overturned and caused a small pileup blocking northbound traffic for almost 2 hours. There were no fatalities, but 2 people suffered minor injuries. Both were taken to nearby hospitals where they are listed in gay condition. I mean stable."

Well, `gay` resembles `bay`. `Bay` is close to `bye`. `Bye` almost sounds like `bide`. `Bide` or `bind`, the difference is only an N, isn`t it? Finally, `bind` can easily be confused with `blind`. So there, that`s why people mix up words like `gay` and `blind`. It`s only natural.
