People and their insults.

So today i got into an argument with one of my friends. He every time i complain about something he responds with "cause your gay" and today i finally snapped.

Now understand i have nothing against gay people and i think they should have the choice to do whatever they want. However, i am not gay. Though yes i wear skinny jeans most of the time my hair is a little weird, (an mini afro essentially because it so curly i cant figure out what to do with it, Son of liberty if you read this, help me.) Anyways, i really don't care what people call me but it's about why.

Yes i do joke around with him a good bit, but it's always very sarcastic and always in good nature. He always takes it the wrong way and proceeds to call me gay, and a flamer etc...

Now i don't quite see why gay is always the term used against me and people like me, but it really is annoying and indecent i do believe.

Now, please discuss.

    I honestly hate it when people throw around the word gay......It should only be used to address someone who is actually "gay" and not to be used as in insult or to be funny. It is disrespectful to people who are actually "gay".

    Being a guy and being called gay is basically a rite of passage. If you're weren't actually gay, you wouldn't care; like all other non gay guys.

    Move on.

    The word ‘gay’, has become to mean ‘homosexual’ in the modern era however, pre-19th century it meant ‘carefree’

    Today it is morphing into another meaning that seems to mean ‘lame’ or ‘rubbish’. There is a widespread current usage of the word amongst young people.

    The word 'gay' ... need not be offensive... or homophobic ... however, this new meaning is simply an example of a living language.

    For the benefit of the uneducated amongst you, a living language is one that is still changing ... like English. On the other hand, a dead language is one that has ceased to change ... i.e. Latin (no new words or meanings are being added).

    So, we are just keeping up with developments in English usage. In that context, your friend has just replaced the word "lame" with "gay" ...

    So, I'm sure in a few years you'll be able to look the word gay up in the dictionary and you find one of its definitions will be "lame".

    I wasn't quite mad at it, i don't really care what he says i don't care if he calls me gay, it doesn't bother me. It's just people saying it in general.

    Though Whiterook i do agree with you.

    Get a 4 on the sides and use clippers on the top. Take it down to about 2 inches and get it thinned. Get Axe Sophisticated paste and do a stylish flip with your bangs and slightly tussle the top around. Hope that helps!

    Kawaii: Context is created by the situation. You can't have one single context for a word, that would be impossible. Whiterook is right. While gay can mean "homosexual" when used in "context", it can also mean in another completely seperate context "lame".

    Wow, you're that insecure about your masculinity to be offended when an immature douchebag calls you gay. That's gay...

    A REAL man doesn't have to let other people define who he is. He can put on a pink dress and strut around singing show tunes, then go home and bang four hot chicks and knock them all up, then work four jobs to support the kids, then pay for their college...

    Yeah.

    You define who you are, if you're worried about some little pissant calling you gay, then you are gay.

    If it does not offend you one bit, why are you worrying about it so much?

    I thought the word gay quite being used as an insult a few years ago, or maybe it was just used by high schoolers around here and I just now realized that more mature people don't use it as an insult?

    Also, Kong, that made me lol a little.

    In response to WhiteRook:

    Its kind of like that South Park episode, where the kids use the word "fag" to describe Harley riders. They weren't saying they were gay, but that they were just annoying.

    Also, fun fact: The reason Latin is used for the genome and species of plants and animal is because it is a dead, static language. Since the words never change meaning, once they label a plant or animal with a genome and species they can be confident it will have the same meaning for the rest of time.
