    Like i hate it when ppl use gay in place of the word stupid. It makes no sense at all. And i hate it when ppl insult artsy guys by saying that they r gay just because they are artsy

    You see, I use it because Im so NOT anti gay, that me saying something is " Gay " or " totally homosexual " is really funny, because Im completely against homophobia in every sense. I have random rants about it quite often actually.


    So me and a few friends say it, but most of them are bi or gay anyway so I dont see the harm if they have that sexual orientation and also find it funny.

    I never EVER use it in a serious manner or in front of people I dont know very well.

    Well homosexuals kind of hi-jacked the term themselves, it's only been in recent years that it has been used to describe sexual orientation.
    Most dictionaries don't even have this definition- they say it means "a cheerful mood or something brightly colored".

    Technically it's an insult though.

    What do you call artsy?

    I'm an art/music kinda guy but I still can play sports etc..

    I don't speak with a lisp and attempt to dress/sound gay.

    I try to replace the word gay with lame but I'll admit, I use it on occasion.

    Art and music are for the purpose of getting girls.. and looking at the finer points of life. What makes that gay?

    If you're "artsy" you probably go that extra mile to seem gay with choices of clothing.. choices of speech/words.

    It's not the fact that you're "artsy" that makes you seem gay.

    Sure, technically it is an insult to gay people. But taking it as an insult is almost using a view on life that everyone's out to get you

    I feel that most people who take it as an insult, choose to take it that way just because they can.

    Does the ignorance of the non-artistic world just make you want to scream?
    Ah, the group seems to be geared towards "artistes".

    I'd join, but I'm obviously too much of a pleb.

    And never use "Like" at the beginning of a sentence.

    "Like totally?" That screams gay.

    What dictionaries are you reading? I've never seen a dictionary printed in the last twenty years or so that didn't include a definition regarding its usage pertaining to homosexuals.

    Anyway, I very rarely use the word in that sense. I'm not opposed to it on principle (most of the people who get worked up over it are twats, and I'm so not), but it's so overused that every time I hear someone say it, I just want to punch them. But I have the same reaction to people calling pop 'soda', so...it's not exactly a big deal to me. It's just goddamn annoying.
