Gay like it’s a bad thing

PEOPLE.

Stop using the word “Gay” like it’s a bad word.

“oh the Jonas Brothers are so gay.”
“ew that shirt looks gay.”
“your music is gay.”

Just because homosexuality is something you don’t promote / cannot bring yourself to accept does not give you ANY right to discriminate others.

Look, I’m not here promoting homosexuality, because at the end of the day I would say it’s not natural. But just because we (straight people) are not wired that way doesn’t mean we’re allowed to go around using it as a derogatory word. Imagine how a gay man would feel if he was standing right behind you while you were telling your friend how “lame and gay” the movie was. Imagine how you’d feel. Have a care.
