When did the word gay replace the words to describe things that aren't normal or different?

I hear it a lot more.

I bought a new Pink Floyd jacket. Gay.

Another one of my Pink Floyd jackets had a rainbow (The spectrum). Gay. It's ****ing Pink Floyd, come on.

Got a new pair of shoes.

Gay.

I am a straight male.

And it's probably offensive to gays, because it's used to describe something supposedly bad.


/Rant


I know, this thread is pretty gay.
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

You're just noticing this now? It's been around for years and has even started to die out slightly now.

Yeah, I hear it quite a bit, and I use it myself. I respect gays and lesbians too. It's just a word. If someone is offended by it, I just won't say it then.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Those shoes are pretty gay.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

I try not to use it but it slips out every now and then.

It's wrong, IMO.

that rant was pretty gay tbh...


just joking, yeah it does happen a lot, not a term i use that often though.
#11
I thought "gay" just meant anything bad in any way?

Well, I guess MANLY STRAIGHT MEN see gay people as weak and feminine. Thus, if they describe something as gay, they are implying that it is weak while simultaneously boosting their e-penis growth.

I don't see how objects can be gay.
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

This.

I don't think there is anything wrong with calling things gay. I say we find a new degrading word for homosexuals.

Because people are so egotistical and homophobic, they're worried of someone accusing them to be gay, so they attract attention away from themselves by inflicting suspicion unto others.

Which is pretty gay.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

When used with a derisive attitude (e.g. "that was so gay"), the word gay is pejorative. While retaining its other meanings, it has also acquired "a widespread current usage" amongst young people, as a general term of disparagement.[13][14] This pejorative usage has its origins in the late 1970s. Beginning in the 1980s and especially in the late 1990s, the usage as a generic insult became common among young people.

I have nothing against gays, never will, but as far as im concerned if they can't get over the fact that I use the word to describe something then they don't have to be my friend. After all, it's just a word. If they can't get over the fact I'm not using it against what they are or im not using it towards them then that's not my problem. It's just a word i've become used to saying.

I can't wait until I catch a homosexual calling someone retarded.

I was in a gay shop once and there was this HUUUGE dildo and I thought: "Dammit, that thing is as long as my forearm." Then I looked to the right and there was a rubber forearm right next to it. Creepy as hell.

This has been going on for so long that I'm not sure how to respond.
The DSOTM one makes sense though. The rainbows are different, but most people associate any rainbow with "Gay Pride."
Still, you're just noticing this?
