Into the Black

Think before you speak is an effort "to raise awareness about the prevalence and consequences of anti-LGBT bias and behavior." Thanks GamePolitics. "That's so gay?" Well: "That's so 'Gamer Guy Who Has More Videogames Than Friends.'" Touché!

Also, I really would not care at all if someone said "that is straight!"

Kinda gives new meaning to the term "Straight Shooter"...

These sort of "efforts" seem to have an opposite effect... all it does is give more power to the words even when they're not used in an attempt to insult someone directly.

It's one thing if someone is directly trying to insult you, but people shouldn't zero-in on a single word, rather the action and intent.

The article had a legitimate point until I saw the little downloadable "posters". In case they didn't notice, fighting fire with fire isn't going to help the situation, especially when directed at jocks, cheerleaders, and gamers.


Also, I really would not care at all if someone said "that is straight!"

It's the same guy.

I think he's secretly gay...

BTW, when did "gay" pseudo-officially become just for men?

Since nobody coined a term opposite "lesbian."

Honestly I used to see "gay" and in particular "ghey" on gaming message boards all the time, now not so much. In particular the latter used to be extremely popular, but it suddenly dropped off the face of the earth.

The solution isn't making everyone alter their speech. The solution is to stop being so thin skinned about everything and stop thinking the world is out to get you.

Get over it people.

You do not have a monopoly on the word "gay". We can use it however we'd like.
Do you have a single fact to back that up?

I heard a black dude today say to his black friends jokingly, "Get aware away from my care car you black people!" I thought that was sort of strange.

edit: typos!
