    Using gay as a substitute for lame does not even being to describe how lame this video is.

    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.

    No one was bother when the word Gay developed the new meaning of homosexual. So why is everyone bothered that it now means rubbish as well?

    Jesus, people are so sensitive. It`s just the new use of a word... get over it.

    lol. I try not to say it because it does offend a lot of people. But there also a lot of gay peeople that say it too because well...it`s just a word. I am guilty of it sometimes though but I rarely ever say it in public. Or any kind of slur for thst matter because it`s just rude to those around me

    So what if it`s offensive. People need to lighten up. It`s a bloody word for gods sake. waa waa you said that movie was gay. Lets not forget the first meaning of gay, which is `Happy`. Maybe people need to focus on that and not what teeny boppers are saying.

    " I am guilty guilty guilty of this. I say queer and gay all the time."

    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).

    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.

    Just more proof that people fail at English. It`s slang, anyhow, do you think it would be so terribly bad that, instead of saying "That`s gay" you could say "You know, that really doesn`t look right." ..It`s a couple words longer. Wow. It`ll take about.. a second more than it would have had you said "That`s gay". So, please, show society you`re actually, oh...intelligent? Evolved?

    I can see what they are trying to get at...

    but....

    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.

    "No one was bother when the word Gay developed the new meaning of homosexual. So why is everyone bothered that it now means rubbish as well?
    Jesus, people are so sensitive. It`s just the new use of a word... get over it."

    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?

    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.

    What some people on this board forget is that gay people, myself included, are human. And yeah, sorry if I`m being "over sensitive" in your book, but it does hurt when you make comments like "I don`t care about them" or that being gay is stupid. But, you know, what do you care, right? I mean, it`s not like when your saying something like calling your a kid a fag or making fun of two men who are on the bus holding hands that it actually has potential to hurt them, right? They don`t really care, right? I mean, they are less than you "blessed" straight people, right? Is that why gay kids are more likely to drop out of high school than straight kids? Or more likely to commit suicide? Sure words don`t hurt physically but they do harbor hate and hate breeds things besides just name calling. 1 in 4 gay boys and girls under 25 have had some sort of physical abuse happen to them due to homophobia. This includes being spit on, punched, kicked, and having their posse

    Also about Hillary Duff, you know what, I give her some credit because there are kids out there who do look up to her (I`d rather her than Miley Cirus or Paris Hilton) and since the target audience for this video are KIDS and not you 24 year old beer belly straight men, I think she did a good thing.

    Ok, so maybe they`re going about this the wrong way. People will probably still say "gay" in such a context that it won`t matter what anyone does. After reading the comments on here, I`m thinking most people on here are like "OH NOES MY HOMOPHOBIA IS FADING BECAUSE SOMEONE IS ACTUALLY TRYING TO DO SOME GOOD AND STOP THIS OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE!!!" Maybe I don`t know what I`m talking about. Maybe you don`t know what you`re talking about. I don`t know. But it`s nice to see that SOMEBODY is doing SOMETHING about this.

    so we should start using gay as a positive adjective? no.

    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.

    Since we apparantly can`t use gay we have to come up with a new synonym for lame. How about pedo? As in "this video is totally pedo." Or "those clothes make you look pedo." Much less offensive. I mean child-rape is pretty lame anyway...

    gay |gā|
    adjective ( gayer , gayest )
    1 (of a person, esp. a man) homosexual : that friend of yours, is he gay?
    • relating to or used by homosexuals : feminist, black, and gay perspectives.
    2 lighthearted and carefree : Nan had a gay disposition and a very pretty face.
    • characterized by cheerfulness or pleasure : we had a gay old time.
    • brightly colored; showy; brilliant : a gay profusion of purple and pink sweet peas.
    Gay meaning ‘homosexual,’ dating back to the 1930s (if not earlier), became established in the 1960s as the term preferred by homosexual men to describe themselves. It is now the standard accepted term throughout the English-speaking world. As a result, the centuries-old other senses of gay meaning either ‘carefree’ or ‘bright and showy,’ once common in speech and literature,

    The term `gay` has obviously been evolving, and truthfully, calling `lame` things gay puts it closer to its original meaning, although meaning the opposite, at least it is back in the same category.

    I don`t know how gay ended up as a slang term for homosexuality, and I don`t know how gay ended up being a slang term for something lame, but just because the first one came first doesn`t automatically invalidate the second meaning, and it also doesn`t invalidate the meaning before it.

    That being said, faggot is a lot funner to say.

    In our school it`s ingrained in our heads not to use phrases like "That`s so gay". And now that we rarely say things like that it`s clear how degrading it is when other people say it. Just grow up and take responsibility for the things you say.

    Hmm. Gay originally meant happy and carefree.

    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.

    "gay" and "faggot" become curses, so what? It`s no worse than saying something is "retarded." You`d have to get a majority of people stop the word from being used in such manner. My freinds and I use "gay" as a substitute for the f bomb, and believe it or not, people find it a lot less offensive. It`s not a good thing to say, but there are far worse things to be said.

    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.

    It isn`t about the meaning of a word changing. Gay isn`t going to suddenly mean stupid or lame, it`s still going to mean homosexual. So now that homosexual is being connected with stupid and lame (even if you don`t mean it, as I suspect is the case a lot of the time), those two words will start blurring their meanings together.

    I don`t really get offended at it though.

    I don`t get offended at much.

    who cares the meaning of words change all the time gay was a term for happy which then became a term for homosexual which is now turning 2 term for bad so its gone from a positive to a negative word... which makes me think does that mean that the arguements about homosexuals being a good thing or a bad thing should stop? they are in the middle so are neither :D

    Don`t you people know that GAY is actually a synonym of HAPPY?

    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.

    When I say "that`s so gay" I really mean "that`s so happy"...but now that I know that society nowadays uses "gay" to mean "homosexual" and that "gay" is used as "lame" which is offensive to homosexual people....wait I`m confused.

    Hmmm... maybe I should start a new word since no one is wanting to not say gay...

    "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.

    "You know something: unintelligent people use words like Gay, curse words, and demeaning words because they don`t know how to articulate themselves any other way.

    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

    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.

    Really, Gay = happy

    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...

    We`re raising it to a whole new level here. So, if you ARE gay, are you allowed to say things are gay? If you`re jewish, you can make jewish jokes without offending and if you`re African American, you can call other African Americans that world that I would get my pasty white arse beat into the middle of next week for saying. So, does it become a term of endearment for gay people? "What`s up my gay homo?!" -- and anyone who is NOT gay gets their pasty white arse beaten...but probably in a different way. Ick.

    You know the word gay being used to mean homosexual was first used by homosexual people because of it`s postive meaning of being happy.
    Also dictionarys recognize these two meanings.

    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

    They might also think it means they are bad.
    Using the word gay in these ways is just as bad as using the N word to a black person (Or to anyone for that matter) Or other racist slangs and the like.

    @Shadowspirt, shut up man. If a kid is taught that gay means bad they are being parented badly, as you should be talking properly around kids and not using "offensive" slang.
    Secondly, at the point kids realise that people are gay I`m sure they`ll know what it means, unless you introduce people with "This is John and he`s gay".
    When I shout at football matches that the referee`s blind am I being offensive to blind people? Who cares?

    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

    Do I say gay in a negative connotation? No.
    I dont` understand why others do either and I don`t understand why it is socially acceptable to discriminate in one`s speech if it is only something "gay". It is not acceptable to discriminate when talking of race, ethnicity, or religion. So why isn`t sexual orientation and gender expression on that list?
    Some of you say to stop being to damn sensitive. But is it not warranted? When anti-gay speech is acceptable, anti-gay actions are acceptable. If a mexican is killed because they are mexican, does not the community react angrily? Isn`t it a hate crime? But what of Lawrence King, who was killed because of his sexual orientation?
    The fact remains that homosexuals are the least accepted of all minorities, yet they composed a greater part of the population than some other minorities. Think about what you are saying, people. When you cause "gay" to be a negative term, you remove the small measure of security of thos

    e around you and make violence to those people not only tolerated, but almost condoned. Do not all people deserve the same level of safety and security, the life, liberty, and PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS as others? Are not the prosperity of your friends and family important to you? Look around you, 11% of any given population is gay. 3 of your peers in every class, at least one in your close family, at least one amoung your friends. I realize that I cannot make you stop saying things are "gay" with a negative conotation, but perhaps the next time you say it outloud, you will think.
