Why? The way it's used in that song is exactly in line with the first set of synonyms. You want people to change a word that's being used to mean exactly what one of its definitions says it means? Then you say a group which describes itself explicitly using the word, as per the second meaning, uses it in a way that is not within the scope of either meaning? Sorry, that's just... wrong. By which I mean "wrong," because I try to use words that mean things to mean the things the words mean.

Someone once used the word "gay" here to describe, I think it was, the second X-Men movie. As in, "[it] was the gayest movie I've seen." Some people didn't understand what was meant by that. Because it was a homosexual female using the word to mean homosexual, rather than some other thing.
