This picture was taken by me while I was at an elementary school doing a delivery. I had no idea this movement was getting this kind of advertising. I laughed when I saw it. Some may label me as an asshole for finding it amusing but that’s okay. Apparently using ‘gay’ as a derogatory term needs more attention than any other words that are considered offensive. How come there are no posters to deter the use of the terms ‘motherfucker’ or ‘cocksucker’? Are the feelings of gays more important than the feelings of mothers, the people who have sex with them or people who like to give oral sex to men?
It seems that any group that makes up less than 10% of the population want to make a stink about something. Gay people want this, fat people don’t want to pay for 2 seats on an airplane when their ass takes up 2 seats, feminists want everything, etc.
I realize that I probably sound like an old white racist guy who won’t give up the word ‘nigger.’ I’m sure this just don’t say gay movement will likely see better success once people from my generation die off. I’m not sure what the goal is though. Is it to deter people from using ‘gay’ in a derogatory sense in public or is it to deter people from even saying it behind closed doors with their like minded buddies? If it’s the latter then it will never happen. Who really yelled out ‘that’s so gay’ in public before anyway?
From the message of the poster, it sounds like they don’t want people saying it when a gay person is around to hear it. Okay. That’s just common knowledge unless if you are an asshole. I guess the idea might be that you don’t know if someone is gay or not.
Sometimes something is so gay and it’s not really meant in a negative way. If someone bought me a tight pink shirt, I think it would be accurate to say that it’s so gay. It might even be a compliment because gay guys tend to dress better than straight guys.
When my boss is making life miserable at work, soon I won’t be able to say, ‘I’m getting fucked up the ass by my boss’
We’re offended because there is nothing wrong with getting fucked up the ass.
I don’t know about you but I’m not giving up on saying ‘it’s so gay’ anytime soon. I will use discretion when I use it, as I always have.
