Honestly it upsets me. If you want to say something is lame, just say its lame. There's no need to call it gay or whatever. I know that before gay meant happy, but language evolves and changes, and now it doesn't mean that. Associating a homosexual with being lame is just rude and base.


Thank you.

I find the use of the phrase "that's so gay" (or any other negative use of the word gay) to be quite offensive, as I am gay. I am neither stupid nor lame, so to use the word 'gay' as a negative adjective is rather thoughtless and rude, in my opinion.

I don't think anything of it. Even gay people use it.

i think its a good sign that people have moved on from all that gay discrimination stuff if people are using the proper word to call anything and everything

I don't really care either way as long as nobody else cares.

I don't use the term, but if it offended someone I'd back them up.

Honestly, people don't even use words the way they were intended anymore. I know lots of people who call something 'gay' when they want to say something is bad or terrible. Reminds me of the South Park episode where they changed the word 'fag' in the dictionary to mean an inconsiderate Harley Davidson motorcycle rider

It annoys me, but not that much. Besides it being offensive to gay people, it's just not proper English. Something or some event can not be gay.
