Members varialbender Posted May 18, 2006 Members Share Posted May 18, 2006 But seriously, I heard on the radio today that some teachers are fighting the phrase "that's so gay."I don't find it offensive, and I don't know any gay people who would. I think a saying like "I got jewed" is a lot more offensive, in which case it means being ripped off, as the jewish stereotype rips people off. This differs from the phrase "that's so gay" (meaning "that sucks", etc...) in that there is no connection to a gay stereotype, and I doubt anyone means "that's so awful, like gays are awful." Anyone actually bother reading that and have an opinion?I'm not exactly fighting for the right to say it, but I think it's overly pc to try to ban it. I wonder how many actually mean it offensively, and how many take it offensively. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
