Well, that's me outed to the office. Rather loudly.|
If I take exception to the use of the term "gay" as a generic insult, is that just me being picky?
No. In our office, that counts as harassment, and would earn someone a nice little interview with an HR Manager.
It annoys me, but i'm sad to say, hearing it shouted by so many of the kids at this school, i've become kinda immune to it, i just blank it out, along with 100's of other words noises and bodily functions that barrage my ears daily.
Although when a child calls someone a 'fat anorexic gay lesbian' i just want to slap them upside the head for not even being able to insult someone properly.
Not just you. Here's us thinking we've reclaimed the word, like "queer" and all of a sudden, it becomes a generic insult for something crap.
Well done for the outing, though :-)
No. It annoys me too. Of course, I'm a bit shunned anyway half the time, even by the homosexual community for being bi. Don't you just love it when people insist you're just a sex addict and don't know what you like? :P
