Quote: 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?
I simply roll along. I don't want to change anything.
But you do. That's psychological projection and yet another assumption on your part.
Get used to it: Humans created the definitions. They're the ones who use 'em. I'd be more concerned about right-wingers who denigrate the word "liberal" to equate with "communism" and other pejoratives.
So "gay" has a dual-meaning and that drives thin-skinned P.C. pablum pukers nutz. It can mean "happy" or it can mean "peculiar". That's just the way it is.
You don't like it? Don't use it. If you don't like some who uses it as a form of self-deprecating humor, though? Get over it. Don yer jock, insert the cup and take the hit.
Quote: 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
You're the one calling it "wrong". That makes you an uptight P.C. pablum puking crybaby. Only because, "...wahhhhh...they don' wanna play by mah rulz...wahhhhh!!!"
All over the word "gay". And if that riles you up I just wonder how you get along IRL.
That's the problem with people who take themselves why too seriously within their finite lifespan: No sense of either humor or perspective.
Anyway, I'll laugh at your expense. Because you're gay.
