And stop with the damn "Anti-Cyber-bullying" crap. Cyberbullying is also known as "survival of the fittest."*dusts hands* There, that oughtta start a few flame wars! My work here is done. ^.^
... just kidding.
and saying something is gay isn`t a personal attack on homos.
And she does have a point.....that shirt looks like poo
We no longer have black sheep in families, brainstorms at school, white boards, and the most shocking is that we can`t even have golliwog dolls anymore. They weren`t even racist. People should stop being offended so easily and take things on the chin. They need to fit into the world, not make the world fit them otherwise nothing will ever be good for them
Using gay as a insult or using it to call someone or something lame is very offensive even if not meant to because gay was used in the first place because they were saying they were happy. Then suddelly changing it to mean lame is mean and was first used to be negetive, but now that using the word gay is being used negetivly eveyone is thinking it`s ok. How would you like if someone was to take your first name and make it mean "lame" or something of the sort. You would not, or at least normaly one would not.
I`m not gay myself, but I talked to people who were before I wrote this and they don`t like it for the reasons I stated above.
Also using the word gay to mean lame may not seem like a big thing now but younger kids will grow up knowing the word as gay as bad. So when meeting someone
I understand what an example is, quit being a bitch, if you want to take a swing at USA then be ready for a counter punch.
ps, your still gay
Fag = Cigarette.
Fagg.ot = Bundle of sticks
These terms were in existence before they were deemed "homosexual" in meaning. Just because you don`t like it doesn`t mean that everyone can`t say it anymore.
Freedom of speech... except when someone might cry, or feel offended because they don`t know all the meanings.
Soon we wont be able to say anything cause someone might take offense...
im so gay (happy) today
"thats life" get over it. O.o
I thought it was "europe" that meant wrong, pathetic, boring...anything bad, really` BECAUSE that`s how many people thought of europe."
AahNold: You are clearly semiliterate. Get someone to explain my post to you, as you obviously cannot understand it by yourself.
Although you do serve the useful purpose of illustrating my point - you would see the irrational prejudice if it was directed at a different group. You fail to understand what an example is and you respond with irrational prejudice, but you do prove my point.
coincidence? I think NOT!
I.E. THEY`RE TOO DUMB TO COME UP WITH ANYTHING BETTER"
or.... you know, maybe they want to say gay? not everyone has to speak in advanced, articulate latinate diction
"Ew that`s so Christian." Makes sense. Christians won`t care. They`re too busy being gay for their Jesus. All hail gay Jesus. Yay.
Coming to think of it, that video was so happy and homosexual.
And the video`s right. If you say `That white top is so gay`, you either mean:
1. That white top is a homosexual.2. That white top is happy.
I.E. THEY`RE TOO DUMB TO COME UP WITH ANYTHING BETTER
Maybe some people do not like the commercial very much, but I appreciate their effort.
Your tax dollars at work, folks.
who knows maybe it will catch on. there is the problem that it sounds really gay to say outloud...
Fine. From now on, I`ll call lame things `queer.`
aside from that i get the point. is it going to stop me from using it? no.
if they can get people to stop using f*ck in a negative way, because it was originaly just about sex, then i wont say gay in a negative way.
Really? What did they do to you, the bastards? Did they... they did, didn`t they! Are you able to sit down yet, or are you still suffering from the anal bleeding?
Also, what are you really angry about? Tell the truth now... it`s because deep down you actually LIKED it, didn`t you, you big horny slut!
I don`t really get offended at it though.
I don`t get offended at much.
"Damn, ain`t this car pimpin`?""Yeah, that car looks exactly like the kind of inconsiderate punk willing to use women against their will to benefit his own profit at the expense of the happiness and lives of his so-called employees. Needs a bit more wax, though."
one of my friends has taken up using "jew" as a verb meaning to rip off, cheat, and/or swindle. I blame south park for that one.
So using it to refer to homosexuality or lameness doesn`t really work either way.
"Wow, that pooty looking skirt is so happy and carefree!!!"
"Those two guys kissing each other are so happy and carefree!!"
Well, actually, the last one made more sense.
Stop trying to tell me what I can and cannot say.
That being said, faggot is a lot funner to say.
then i couldnt call things retarded...or say its cold as hell, or hot as hell...
so....then i thought, psh, thats gay...
WTG hilary duff for not doing anything
Now i know
It just doesn`t roll off the tongue as nicely as gay does.
wow. that was GAY.
"take it to the butt" is just slang here in America that means to get offended easily, I frequently enjoy that "form" of sex with female partners. Who is ignorant now?
now, how you take that, as a compliment or a racist term is up to you. jewish, black, mexican, homo,gay, are all just WORDS. you make of them what you want to. was i complimenting or insulting the video? you decide.
i hate political correctness at the best of times, bad enough tv shows are ruined by it, now thier trying to force it on us in real life drat that for a game of toy soldiers
That video was gay.
even homosexuals use the word "gay" to describe things negatively. half the people that say it aren`t like "i think homosexuality is wrong, and will therefore insult homosexuals by using them to describe something negatively."
even if you do think homosexuality is wrong, its your right to express that belief, through whatever means appropriate.
and we have no right to tell people what they should or should not say. this whole campaign is a complete reversal of freedom of expression.
so how about YOU knock it off.
stop telling me what i can and cannot say, faggot.
this video is homosexual, and therefore retarded.
PRIMETIME DON`T BAN ME FOR TRIPLE POSTING!
FU CKING BRILL.
I`m all for standing up for gays, but Hillary(hoebag)Duff ruined all meaningfulness of this ad
*ahhh* Etymology at its finest, folks!
what what? IN THE BUT?
What? That form of sex also occurs among heterosexual people. Also, you`re implying "gay" only refers to homosexual men. You`re not being funny, you`re being ignorant.
It`s similar to the word "retarded" being used carelessly for people who are dumb, when people really ARE technically mentally retarded. It`s just rudeness, regardless if it`s a "new meaning" for the word. If "retarded" and "gay" refer to a certain `group` of people - perhaps as a means of self identification - then using them also in a negative way, although unrelated to the former meaning (this can be debated with the word "retarded" however), can have a negative impact on those `groups`. And with all the hate in the world already, why add more unnecessarily?
Anyway, although the video is a bit bland, I completely agree with its message. :D
so you really shouldnt say lame either.
grow the drat up, the word is being used in a different context which hundreds of other words in the english language are far more frequently.
People like this remind me of those that banned the word "brain storming" because it sounds too violent, or those that tried to convince everyone that "retard" with a downward inflection was incredibly offensive, whilst "retard" without it was a medical term.
`Gay` also means happy, `Faggot` can also mean a bundle of sticks. How awful.
I thought it was "europe" that meant wrong, pathetic, boring...anything bad, really` BECAUSE that`s how many people thought of europe.
Maybe you should be honest, because there`s no way you can think people mean "that movie was happy" when they say "that movie was gay". The fact that you need to lie indicates that your argument is rubbish.
Imagine for a moment that `USA` gained international usage as a word to mean `wrong, pathetic, boring...anything bad, really` BECAUSE that`s how many people thought of the USA. I think you might then realise that this sort of thing both reflects and reinforces irrational prejudices.
both words had diffrent meaning before they where used to represent homosexuals...meh random comment
Guess they should use a dictionary more often.
if people didn`t take it to the butt and get offended by it then it wouldn`t be a big deal.
Oystah, it`s a matter of context and intent as well as usage. If you don`t mean to be offensive, then you`re just sloppy with language, as most people are. "gay" and "queer" by themselves aren`t a problem anyway. It`s this line of thought that`s the problem: gay = homosexual. Homosexual = wrong and bad, therefore wrong and bad = gay. Although "queer" has a dubious etymology in this context, given the normal meaning, and "gay" is an inaccurate usurption of the word (it used to mean happy with a connotation of something frivolous and unimportant done for the pleasure of it).
It`s a pity there isn`t a neutral word for homosexual men, like `lesbian` for women (it`s derived from a mistransliteration of the name of a Greek island where Sappho lived, and she was known for her poetry about other women).
Jesus, people are so sensitive. It`s just the new use of a word... get over it.
Sure, people should definitely stop using the word in this context (also because it makes you sound like an idiot), but people need to realize that it won`t change overnight and not get uppity and lecture about it.
