Shut. The. F*ck. Up. No one gives a f*ck. They'll nod and twirl their moustaches profoundly but at the end of the day, they'll still be using one word and one word only to sum up their distaste but overall tolerance for anything and everying across the internet. That word you pretentious bastarads. Is gay.

How is it that the Ad Council still exists? Does nobody realize that their commercials are always $hit? This ad is for a good cause, but it's just going to make things worse.

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.

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

@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

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.

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

Worst ad ever. They made more fun of the anti-that's gay-girl than those saying "that's gay".
