One this word is used as 'man sexually intersted to another man'.
And it doesn't mean as a man like another man.
But, anyhow..i just notice today, the word is misused as somthing unxceptable such as, "the idea that fudaka stole from the orginal n just rename the pplz r just totaly gay"
I dont know why, but it's somekind of phenomenon where ppl also using it for other terms beside homosexual.
I wonder why they dont use the word 'lesbian' or such, but misusing the word is annoying me. Not becoz as if I'm gay, but I just the word.

Another thing is, people today are just too worried/concerned about this gay thingy. What i mean is, it's like if a male love a boyband, it's like a taboo as if, boyband such as NewS, KAT-TUN, DBSK, Fahrenheit, F4 & such existed only for girls. I've once recieved an invitation from a member from "w-inds" CR group to celebrate Keita's(main vocal) b'day...girly way. I reply her "I'm don't do such coz i'm a male". And she reply me "Oh, i'm sorry, i saw you in the group". that sounds like as if the group is only for girls. So does to DBSK group, The first time i joined the group the name was " DBSK Fan unite"...but a few weeks then, it's named "DBSK Fangirls Unite".

I don't like this and i hope ppl will stop molesting the word 'gay' or concerning 'gay' too much. from what i can c today, many guys r soft but they r still straight.

the word gay is only what u make it to be. u cant really use it wrong. if most people say the word gay that way then its basically the way its used. the other thing u talked about, i agree with u, they shouldnt only be for girls, im a guy and i agree with u

well...it doesn't matter how people use the word gay...

just like gay people - using their gay lingo, the people who are associating the word "gay" are only using the word as an expression...i don't think they are molesting the word...

and besides, its freedom of speech T_T

ummm people have been using this "phenomenon" for years now....and gay means HAPPY in the first place not homosexual. leaving the ignorance/stupidity aside, i was talking to someone who knew little english about this word (it was brought up elsewhere as an insult). it is hard to explain the 3 meanings of gay to someone just learning english, but affterall, i s'pose all slang is. ('happy', 'homo', and 'stupid')

EDIT: by the way, did i mention how ignorant/stupid this thread was (or atleast the opening comment)?

Alright man, since you were kind enough to shed the light on this.

When I say for example this thread is gay, I mean this thread is bad. I'm a homophobe to the goddamn core, gay is bad for me, I'd be happy to just shoot any goddamn queer in sight in the anus. But hey, It's the freedom-to-be-whatever-you-want-even-a-flaming-homo thing, now we real men gotta accept it, yes, a faggot isn't a man, he threw that away when he got uhh... penetrated.
As for "molesting" the word, I don't use the word gay, I've used it as a kid but no more, now I call a gay man a faggot or a queer, and I call something bad fucked up, and when I'm happy I don't call myself overjoyed and gay.
About the boyband thing...jesus christ, you can tattoo Backstreet Boys on your ass for all I care, you're not less of a man because of what kind of music you like, I fucking hate boybands, I won't call you a fag because of it.

I don't think a straight male would refer to his being happy as being gay. That might draw the wrong crowd.

I'm old enough to remember when this word meant "happy". Now no-one would be ignorant enough to use it this way. Words change their meanings all the time. Even worse, I went to school with a girl who had been given the first name "Gaye". When she reached her 20s, she was seriously considering changing it.

As for using gay to mean something bad, I don't do that because it would be insulting to homosexuals. It is easy enough to find other words to convey your opinion without insulting other people. On the other hand, I have a gay friend who sometimes uses it that way.

When Gaye and i were at school, we would have used the word "daggy" for this meaning, as would most teenagers then (very Australian and very old fashioned now).

I don't really get this topic, but using the word gay like "I got into a car crash on the way home, it was so freaking gay!" is fine. I know a lot of gay people and they don't care about the word being used like that.

gay is always being misused.
-mainly to describe something that someone doesn't like..which is really bad..i refrain from using the word. and GAY means to happy, so i think it is stupid to call homosexuals gay...they could be enmo..oh wait most of them are XD

but just becasue something is girly doesn't make you gay to do it if you are a guy.
everyone is so worried about what others think these day..you might say peer pressure deosn't affect you, but it surely does.

if homosexuality was more popular that heterosexuality...people would use being straight as an abomination.

To all homophobes i have to say...you are the GAY ones. And i mean the bad usagae of the word.
Posted 12/27/07
Can't see the word straight as an abomination ever. Of course those who are happy would be the gay ones truthfully. I think a different word would be used to make fun of or even discriminate the heterosexual. Maybe bastard.

Now when you state "if homosexualtiy was more popular," was that reference to a lifestyle or to an actual way of living such as a tradition or so?
