hey , im a str8 guy, and one time i was talking with an aquantince of mine, she was telling me of a bad thing that happened to her to which i replied: "thats gay" meaning "thats crumby" "or "that is a bad thing" she said "dont say that word, gay poeple dont like it". now, even tho im str8 i think im pretty sensitive to gays. maybe its because i grew in an elementary school where the unknown thing known as "gay" was bad somehow, but i know that at this point i my life it is common to hear and to use the word "gay" in this way. am i alone here, has any body else come across this usage and is any body offended, str8,bi or gay? i really do just want to learn what every body thinks.
