Foxxy Cleopatra: Ohhh how sweet. No, my mini-man, I'm not.
Mini-Me: [writes] Are you sure you don't have a little clone in you?
Foxxy Cleopatra: Yes I'm sure.
Mini-Me: [writes] Would you like to?

Flu is gay. Really really gay!

thats a winner in my eyes

I hope you get better soon, flu is not fun. But I'd like to pick up on something that I think about often, and that has just come to the forefront of my mind having seen what you just wrote.

That is, why is it that people so often use "gay" to connote something negative, or something that's bad? "Flu is gay" "Man United are gay" etc etc...don't people think that this is actually really quite offensive to gay people? To imply that their sexuality and social group if you will, is so negative and bad that the word used to describe it, "gay", can actually equate to other negative words like "rubbish" "shit" "awful" "terrible" etc etc...

I do think it's offensive. To me it's almost no different to saying "flu is so black" "man utd are so black" with black in this case being used as the negative word. There would be outcry if people started doing this.


Just putting it out there for discussion to see what others think...

I'm pleased to see that the general response to this has been "stop being a gay". Megalolz.

The majority of gay people I know also use the word "gay" to describe something bad or negative. Which is sometimes quite confusing when they refer to celebrities etc.
