Quote from: piperspitt on February 15, 2014, 12:08:31 PM I totally disagree that if somebody says "that's gay" that they are comparing the thing/situation to the worst thing possible. They are merely voicing an opinion. If the word marriage can have multiple meanings, so can the word gay. Does gay equal queer? Does queer equal odd? Does gay equal happy? If somebody says "that's gay" with out any homosexual reference, it doesn't make sense to me that it would offend a gay person. I don't think that somebody is a heterophobe if they refer to "go straight to hell" and I don't think that they are referring to all straight people as stiffs because they say "on the straight and narrow". Words only have hurtful power if people let them. People are people and created equal, they are not better than others just because they are gay, or white, or morman, or Russian. People better themselves by the way they live their lives, the choices they make, and the way they treat others. I treat people equally and nicely unless they give me a reason not to. I understand that words uttered at about somebody directly can create emotion, but it's silly that if somebody says "that traffic detour is gay", that it would offend a gay person.
