In the late Andy Williams song "May Each Day" (from 1963), the lyric says "May each dawn find you happy and GAY"!! That song also closes when his show was over from 1963 - early 1971. http://www.metrolyrics.com/may-each-day ... liams.html

Yes. The word “gay” rhymes with many other words and was therefore a popular choice of song writers and poets when most English speaking persons knew it expressed joy and happiness.

Once it was usurped as a euphemism for homosexual - the meaning became obscured and in some circles the new meaning tainted. Thus - plenty of old song lyrics, titles, and poetry can be found with gay meaning joyful. And never intended to mean homosexual, or homosexual male.

And certain easily amused persons go ga-ga and become titillated promoting the old straight up gay as the new slang gay whenever they find it.
Simpletons.

You know people are truly proud when they refrain from slang - especially pejorative slang words - and euphemisms, and instead use correct words. For example - African American. Instead of the N word. Or “homosexual man” - instead of gay. One sounds proud. The other sounds demeaning, or reveals not quite feeling complete pride, yet.

Wow, now you get to tell gays what to call themselves? Do you get to make the rules on races that you don’t belong to as well?

Gay is the term. It’s literally part of the LGBTQ+ community. There’s no “H.”

I don’t call you “heterosexual.” It’s “straight.”

“Homosexual” is offensive to gays.

Literally everyone agrees with me except for you.

In today's culture, gay means homosexual and that's what she is implying.
This is not 1940 anymore man.

And I'm glad the word gay is getting recognition like this.
It's about damn time.

We need to start acknowledging that this is a normal variant of sexual orientation.
People need to stop being assumed straight until they "come out".

I had a fucking difficult time as a teenager and still do and I am still uncomfortable with turn fact I like guys. Which is a direct result of ignorant society.

No kid should have to go through what we did.

It's time to end the bullshit


Music is my life.

But that’s what screen glare wants to continue! He’s the one bringing the stank!

He believes “gay” is slang and disrespectful. Why does he get to decide that?! He probably calls black people “Negros.”

What do you call transvestite clowns, screen glare? What’s the proper term? HMMMMMM?!

What is wrong with the correct term homosexual man? What is wrong with the correct term heterosexual man? Everyone should be proud to be men.

If you are truly proud to be a homosexual man - say so. Own your manliness. Don’t hang on to old and unhealthy feelings of inferiority assigned by others - by using the euphemism “gay”.

I realize that one way to take the sting out of hurtful or weaponized terms is to have members of that unfairly ostracized community casually toss around the offensive word among themselves. Thus - for example - some African Americans call each other the N word. And the term gay to describe homosexual men probably came from the codeword term “gay blade”. Which some men would use to indicate a guy who was (wink, wink) of the “less than normal man persuasion”. So homosexual men started to use the shorter term “gay” among themselves - to take the sting out of the term and to remove any weaponization.

As I said - it’s a technique while moving toward full pride.

When all persons drop the euphemisms and pejorative slang words to describe humans - and instead use correct words - then communities which have suffered due to ignorance and fear (held by heterosexual persons, white persons, or other groups of historical dominance in the US) - will enjoy better mental health, total pride, and gratitude that they can enjoy being themselves, and interacting helpfully with the diversity that is humanity.

Screen. I agree with you but how about going one step further. Why use labels at all? Why not just men and women with no identifier in front of it.

“Everyone”? Even people who don’t identify as men? SURE!!! WHY NOT, SKIPPY?!!!

Nobody is offended by the term “gay.” Literally nobody.

Good point. Seems rather odd that people need to identify themselves by their sexual preference.

Maybe I should identify as a member of the TSRLB community. I'm only attracted to Tall, Slim, Redheads with Large Breasts. This has caused significant difficulties for me my entire life.

It’s to educate people on which groups of people are being discriminated against. If people discriminate against you because you like giant gingers with big boobies, then that needs to be spelled out.

Kind of like how people get all freaked out because men are sword-fighting together, plowing together, and, uh, using the bathroom together.

Au contraire. “Giant gingers” are a highly desired segment of society. Just, uh, Google it.

Maybe you should brush up on your Google use mister and stop looking at porn sites.

The term "Ginger" when referring to red heads is derogatory and considered offensive.

Bigot!
