WARNING- if ur anti gay save yourself some time and don't read.

So I was speaking with this awesome guy. And when I say awesome, I mean AWESOME.  But alas, he was a homo, and when I say homo I mean it in the literal term, not the derrogatory "Dude that's so gay" way-- well I guess it could be used in that way too.....

I don't know.  I just feel really bothered by the fact that people (myself included) use the word 'gay' or 'homo' as a bad word.

I mean, If gay people went around saying "Jeesh did you see all those papers we have to file?!  That's so straight it's not even funny."  I would probably be a little bothered, but the truth is nobody does that so there's no reason to feel bothered by derrogetory sectual orientation phrases if you're straight.

For a long time I haven't really thought about what it meant for gay people and how far they've come to reach equality for normal human rights until now--

So from now on I'm going to try to use different words other than gay to describe my math homework.  It's not much, I know, but it's one step closer to being a good person. Only 5 jillion more steps to go.


  1. I know what you mean, I hate when people say gay as an insult. There's this openly gay kid in my grade, and people are so mean about him behind his back, it's sad.

  2. This is probably wrong, but I found the "that's so straight" line hilarious. I actually know a few gays and they seem so open they aren't bothered when other people call something gay and I'm not sure if it's because they are so open or what. You are right though that we should use other terms besides gay, retarded, etc because they are overused and in the wrong context.

  3. ahh im pissed i think my post got deleted not sure ok anywho, ill say it again but in a brief way: kids at my school use gay as in 'lame' a LOT of times. but also, once upon a time gay did mean happy.

  4. seriously. poor little homo guy.
