The second incarnation of my blog
A few years ago a colleague called Ben said that the piece of work in front of him was “so ****ing gay” and then realised I was near him and apologised. I was seriously insulted and he knew it. The use of the word gay appears to be the in thing for children and immature people as a general put down and not in a sarcastic or humourous way. I find it depressing and personally as abhorrent as someone using the N word.
We need to turn the use of the word gay around completely and use it as a compliment all of the time! For example:
To say nice things to a man on his appearance: “He dresses so gay”
To state that you approve of a joke: “Your humour is so gay”
To show favour for a guys football skills: “That pass was well gay”
To say that someone did a good job: “You’re so gay for pay”
(maybe not the last one)
