Makes me think of a child saying something they heard from their parents but don't know what it means...

I think it's alright. There will always be people who take offence to things that others think nothing of. I just think there are a lot of people out there who are more sensitive about the use of the word "gay" in a negative connotation.



^ "That's gay"

ya something like that. Thats why its not that big of a deal if someone says "thats so gay" cause what they are really saying is that something is basically stupid. I don't believe its a derogatory to homosexuals, because it was never meant homosexual to begin with.

I tend to think of it as "that's lame." Same with "that's retarded." Neither bother me personally... BUT. Hate to get all social psychology, there's total legitimacy in people who no longer want the term used as such, because people have proven not too bright with the separation of negative connotations once they're there, and anyone who doesn't understand how use of language affects the structure of society will hopefully take it upon themselves to learn about it. It doesn't matter if we think someone is too sensitive or is being stupid or whatever. We should all just be aware of what we're saying and who's around us when we say it, because there's not much cool about being a jerk, in my personal opinion.

So, that's not quite true. See this.
