"Having to go to high school *cringe* I know that no one thought through it that hard. Teenagers will not know that definition, and while we'll probably never really know how it started, I think it stemmed from simple bigotry and even more…"

"I really, really hate it when people say that. And I love to constantly whine about living in Utah, and of course Mormons are now famous for the gay-hating. Pretty sure when someone says "that's so gay" the respect meter plummets and…"

"I strongly believe that we all know when we use words to inflict pain or some sort of discord with people. However, when one does so that it connects with a movement and/or age group to be a casual term the question then becomes do we help this…"

"If people can't use the term "that's so gay" are we going to ban all offensive speech? To me this is a dangerous proposition in the long run. We start marking things out that become taboo for people to say and the next thing you…"
