Quote: They don't even share a synonym here, though I expect I might find one another level out.
That's only one shortcoming of the Good Book that I'm fully aware of: It's great with language but not completely down with the culture. At least as far as I'm aware of via the 11th Edition distributed on CD-ROM.
Within LGBT the word "gay" is indeed synonymous with "queer" through common usage. That and the word "gay" saves me two letters when used instead of using five. It also ticks off those P.C. white liberals who suffer from neurotic guilt complexes and self-hate.
But the hilarious part is this: If anyone doesn't like how I use the word "gay" then change the lyrics to "Deck The Halls". If'n yer truly offended by the use of the word by me then it's time to do more revising, folks!
No? You don't like me? Tough!
Go back to yer room, Ms. Crawford. Meanwhile, all P.C. people are gay. Oh, I mean "queer" for that's how peculiar P.C. behavior is. ;-)
