    Re: "That's so gay" - please just stop saying that!

    My coworkers usually need a reminder but mostly they try to avoid the phrase since they know I prefer them to do so.

    Re: "That's so gay" - please just stop saying that!

    Funny this should be mentioned. Just a few weeks ago, I noticed myself and my friends using that phraze so often. Anytime something stupid or lame happened, i would/ my friends would say "That's so gay." But one day, I was driving and it hit me...the actual meaning behind the phraze. I'd always used it not even thinking about it...but it dawned on me that it's a really bad remark. It's basically saying that gay IS bad or stupid because your associating it with something bad. I had never really realized the connection...even though I'm 19.

    Funny how you can use a phraze for so long and not really contemplate what it means...I'm gonna try and watch my wording more carefully now that I realize how offensive it is.

    Wow people are becoming so "PC" and take a little phrase out of content. People should just chill out. Take a chill pill!

    gay = homosexual

    ghey = stupid or lame

    I'm gay, and I use it constantly. Personally, this argument is one of the examples of the hyper-sensitive direction is America is going these days. Everyone is so scared of offending someone else, that they censor themselves. Sometimes slang, is just slang, and everyone should just relax.

    VERY well said.

    I know that the term "breeders" is meant to be EXTREMLY offensive to couples who procreate. (They do NOT reproduce, that's what Xerox machines do).

    But I try not to get my skirt ruffled too much when I hear the offensive term. I'm sure the term is meant to incite and "put down" as if having children is somehow wrong, or bad ?

    But ghey is certainly not meant to incite anyone.

    Of course we DO NOT use those terms in our house and my children would not even know what "gay or ghey" was if they heard it. -

    I think the biggest problem is the public/government schools. Where do you think these kids learn these offensive terms?

    Did I just say that?

    Thanks for making my point "High School Teacher".

    Let me guess, you teach in a government school. Right?

    Did I just say that?
