Why are some people offended da a statement such as "That's so gay"?

I just never really understood it.

Most of the people I know who have detto this have nothing against homosexuality. They mean no harm to gay people whatsoever. I'll even admit this, sometimes I use this when I'm in a certain mood. And when I say this, I usually mean to say that something is corny o silly. What I detto when saying "That's so gay" has nothing to do with homosexual people.

I mean, I really don't take offense to it. And I'm bi. Of course I'm aware of other people's feelings and thoughts being completely different than mine.

But it's just....I don't understand the insult that others could see in something like that.

Can someone please explain it to me?

It's offensive because apparently (without much thought, of course) it's bad to be gay.

But it's offensive to homosexuals because the person who says "That's so gay" is meaning to insult who/whatever they're talking to/about, as if being gay really is a bad thing.

It's like saying "That's so Asian" o "That's so Goth".

How would te feel if someone detto "That's so bi!" as an insult? It would hurt. It makes the momosexuals feel rejected. Well, I wouldn't know for sure, but everyone has feelings. Just avoid the sentence and say "thats so retarded" instead

It's simple really.

Would it be ok if i detto '' Thats so black '' to a black person ?


I don't think so.

The word '' gay '' means, Happy in old terms, but in modern giorno society it means Same Gender Relations. So da someone saying '' Thats so Gay ''

1.) It makes absolute no political sense
2.) Its detto in a negative way implying that being Gay is something negative.


JUST USE WORDS AS THEY WERE INTENDED!! IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!!!!!!!!!
