"THAT'S SO GAY" RANT

I hate when people say "That's so gay" about inanimate objects. That is the phrase of people who live and breathe stupidity in its purest form.
One time, someone told me my backpack was gay. My BACKPACK. Yes, in the grand scheme of things, my backpack prefers to mate with other backpacks of the same sex. I found homoerotic magazines under his bed. There were highly explicit pictures of backpacks taking it up the C.D. player compartment by other backpacks. They unzipped each other, poured shreds of old homework papers on each other, you name it. There were even interracial pictures between a purse and backpack, carryall and bookbag, and even a dirty little centerfold with a Gym bag completely open with its straps spread-eagled.

If people say "That's so Gay" when they insult something why don't they say "That's so straight" when they want to compliment it? What if something isn't really as BAD as being gay, would you say "That's bisexual" or "That's transgender" or even "That has closet crossdressing tendencies"?

Should I be institutionalized? Comments.

When the word 'gay' was just invented, it used to mean 'happy'. It's still in the dictionary today :)

My own backpack is gay. It came of the closet (both literally and figuratively) last week. I was shocked at first but then I realized that it was the same loyal backback it always was. I've met it's partner, Jan Sport, and we now get along very well. I'm even a member of the GBLL (Gay Backpack Liberation League)

I do have to say your rant was rather amusing. Either way I'd have to say your feelings about such "insults" are justified. So, yes you are normal, and no you don't need to be institutionalized.

Yeah this person is obviously a gay theatre kid preparing his daily rant tomarrow for summer school. Use this as a correct example of the term gay. Gay theatre kid instead of just gay. My dad says being gay is ok. My mom says it's disturbing. I say let gays do their own gay ass thing. Just don't hit on me. Or try to feed me food from the grill with your hands. Ugh. They gross me out but you gotta live with them. Tee hee!

Lol. That's gay. Everyone says it. What happend to the word gay meaning happy? In that case, have a gay day :3.

Oh yes, because the guy uses a backpack as an example let's call that gay too.

What I don't understand is why can't people look at what they say ONCE in a while.

I tip my hat to you, "he who rants about backpacks". You are correct, 'Gay' seems to be everyone's hot word now-a-days.
Comment Hidden (show)
lol, I love your backpack metaphor.

Let me start off by saying that I'm gay. I guess I'm a bit of a hypocrite in that I tend to say that things are "gay" too, but mainly just as a figure of speech.

As for inanimate objects, it only bothers me if it makes no sense. If you're saying the backpack is gay because it looks stupid, then I agree with you. But if you're saying the backpack is gay because it has unicorns and rainbows on it, then it's a fairly accurate description. :P Don't deny it!

This rant reminds me of my beloved. I do sometimes call things gay, but not as an insult, as much as a compliment for the flamingly rainbowish nature of the item. I love the gays, I love them good.

I remember reading somewhere that ages and eons ago, "Gay" was a synonym for "Happy". Does anyone remember this age of which I speak?

It really isn't good to use the term "That's so gay" though. The way a lot of people say it, it sounds like an insult.

I agree though that inanimate objects can't be considered "gay", "straight", or otherwise.

I dunno man, you are over thinking this particular thing. Alot of things people say make no sense. Calling homosexual people gay which means happy doesn't make much sense either.

I'm a homosexual. I use the term "gay" in this way all the time. It's just our language. If I say: This stapler is so gay, people know that I don't mean: this stapler likes other staplers of the same gender. If I took myself too seriously...well, I bet I would be the ONLY one taking me seriously. To conclude: That's was gay, that guy just totally jewed me. So, I was just like, nigga please!
Comment Hidden (show)
i actually tend to take it a step further and say that stuff is not only gay, but that it's homosexual, takes it up the ass, sucks 10 thousand cocks, or is a cock muncher.

Seriously, if that kind of shit actually makes you mad, you need to take a serious look at your life and your priorities. they're just WORDS people, just like fuck, shit, cunt, fag, cumswallowing jizzwhore, and yes, even nigger.

People are ALWAYS going to say them because they're still fucking taboo to say, and people love to see how far they can push the agenda. I'm not homophobic in any way, but i see NO problem with the use of these words, provided it is in the right context. i wouldn't walk into church or a kindergarten classroom and deface the air with my vulgarity, but with people i'm comfortable with, calling something gay or homo is pretty acceptable.

Seriously, if people just stopped complaining about it being used, it wouldn't be taboo anymore, and it wouldn't be fun to say.

gay is a greek word meaning joyfull,i think that not many people are joyfull anymore and when your having a good day and you smile people automatically think your gay,which in turn you are....i agree inanamite objects cannot be "gay" but the word gay has adopted the meaning homosexual(or a person of one gender liking people of the same gender)

I am a homosexual and I think homosexuals claiming a word to describe themselves is pretty ignorant. Was the word gay intended to mean homosexual originally? No. So why does it offend you for it to take on another meaning as well. I hate almost all homos because they are full of gay pride which doesn't even make any sense because being gay isn't different than being straight. this is why people are homophobic because most homos try and emulate what they believe being gay is. This is no fault of their own but growing up somewhere they learned that being gay is just being gay and they adopt the whole femme homo lifestyle. i don't want to be associated with that shit.

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines gay like this:


Main Entry: 1gay
Pronunciation: \ˈgā\
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French gai, of Germanic origin; akin to Old High German gāhi quick, sudden
Date: 14th century
1 a : happily excited : merry <in a gay mood> b : keenly alive and exuberant : having or inducing high spirits <a bird's gay spring song>
2 a : bright, lively <gay sunny meadows> b : brilliant in color
3 : given to social pleasures; also : licentious
4 a : homosexual <gay men> b : of, relating to, or used by homosexuals <the gay rights movement> <a gay bar>
synonyms see lively
— gay adverb
— gay·ness noun

Nowhere in there do I see "used to describe something that someone doesn't like". Therefore, people who use the word incorrectly is homophobic and immature. The only people who use the word gay to say they don't like something is guys that think saying a word will buff up their masculinity. I think they are pussies for not saying it politely because they're afraid of their masculinity going down. People need to grow the fuck up these days.

I think they mean a gay guy would probably wear it, not so much the sexuality of your backpack. My male friend has one of those small, purse-like shoulder bags that you carry your wallet and camera in and it looks totally gay even though its grey and blue. You don't have a homosexual backpack, maybe you're stylish?

I personally find the phrase 'that's so gay' incredibly insulting. I myself am completely straight but I absolutely stand for gay rights. It's just an insulting phrase even though I know people don't mean it that way and it's just 'catchy' but it's saying that gays are a bad thign. Very old fashioned. I personally say 'that's so lame' Coz that's what I actually think it is I don't think something is homosexual or if you're old school happy.

When someone says "That's so gay" they are not talking about sexual orientation. There's nothing wrong with anyone saying. It's called slang. "Gay" also used to mean happy, but now it has been transformed over the years into being another word for homosexual. Now, it is also being changed into a way of calling something stupid.

I really hate homophobes and I feel the same way when people use "that's gay" as a way to express disapproval of something. I'm in high school, so I hear it constantly. Certainly, there's worse things in the world to compare it to. I never thought anyone else really cared about it, but I guess I was wrong. I think it's pretty normal and no, you shouldn't be institutionalized.

Dumb means you can't talk, so if you say something is dumb, you're insulting those who can't speak.

Stupid means you have low intelligence, so if you say something is stupid, you're insulting those of lower intelligence.

It's the same thing.

However, if it bugs gay people to use that term, I will make sure to use it as often as I can.

Second it. I have no problem with the word gay or "gay" people, same with retarded people and "slow" people. If my son is slow, that is okay but what makes him retarded is if he is bright but yet does all sorts of stupid things.

Calling something gay has nothing to do with sexuality anymore. It is more of a way to insult something or to think something is lame in general.

So I agree with the poster above, this topic is rather gay or retarded.

Saying something is gay is the same as saying something is retarded. I mean, it's insulting to [some] homosexuals when people say "that's so gay." But people don't really think about who they are insulting or hurting when saying, "that's so retarded." Why not start something that won't insult innocent people...maybe "that's so rapist". Or just not insult any group of people.

But to be perfectly honest...people are always going to say it. Embrace the fact that it is just a word and reclaim it. Kind of like the "n" word or the word "bitch"--if you don't let it bother you, and just embrace it, then people will find other insults. Just reclaim the word and don't let it bother you--and show the world that it doesn't bother you.

When people say "that's so gay" it's probably because it is gay! Being gay is not normal therefore your gay looking backpack isn't normal. Ref the comment about your back pack being gay.

To call something 'gay' is immature and insulting. No, a backpack or any inanimate object cannot be 'gay'.
(God forbid, if the backpack was yellow. All the other backpacks would point and whisper, "That one's into watersports.") I'm partial to the term 'lame' but inanimate objects cannot be so either, hence they have no legs, so in fact they don't have a leg to stand on, excluding tables, chairs and such of course. The original post is neither 'gay' nor 'lame' either but does sound verrry familiar.

oh, because there aren't any white homophobes?

You're ignorant, and a hypocrite. How can you get offended at people hating on one minority (homosexuals) when you do the same for another (black people)? especially when you are blaming homophobia entirely on one race when it's an issue that runs deep within your own? (I'm assuming you're Caucasian).

also, the use of the word 'gay' is used widely in teen culture, it's not limited to 'ebonics' and as far as I'm aware, that's not where it originated.

but yeah i agree, I think that ish is really homophobic and needs to die.
but on another note, i say 'that's so gay' sometimes...but i'm queer, and i say it like, 'that is so something that reminds me of a flaming man-loving man'. is that wrong?

Well honestly I think if someone were to say "that's so strait" "that's so bisexual" it's just like saying "that's so gay" don't get me wrong, I hate when people say it too. But I mean saying stuff even remotely close to it is just like saying it. So people should just say the don't like something, other then discriminating on someone sexuality. (:

Hilarious. People are really just plain stupid when they say ignorant things like that. If you have a rainbow backpack with a picture of Lance Bass on it then I can understand. That would be gay. Just another example of how stupid mist people are.

You, are, in short, an idiot.

There are a million words that have adopted vernacular meanings that are different from their dictionary definitions.

Are you saying that words can't adopt new meanings and that we always have to use them in exactly the same way? Such a despotic notion is not only moronic, it is morally reprehensible.
Comment Hidden (show)
I do understand why it offends people if someones says "that's gay" but I want to explain some possibilities of why I think people say it, from a neutral standpoint.

Think of the original meaning of the word "gay."... happy, lively, bright, showy. You could say a backpack that is bright yellow and purple with sparkles would be gay, because of it's gay (showy, vibrant) colors. I think people probably started using "gay" as an insult to things that are too bubbly, gaudy, over the top, etc. But, I also think it got overused, and now I think it is used as an insult to anything.

If you look at people who are gay (homosexual), typically gay men, many tend to have bright scarves, shirts, shoes, etc. and bubbly personalities. (I know first hand that this is not a made up stereotype, and it is not an insult to be bubbly and bright, so don't get offended.)Does it now make sense why people call homosexuals "gay"? Maybe at first to just describe them, and later it developed into an insult? Or maybe just to insult their showy style from the beginning? I don't know.

Anyway... I agree that there are some homophobes who probably do mean it as an insult to gays. However, there are lots of people who use it just because they are used to hearing it from other people. (Just like "sick" means "cool" now. And those word trends do spread.) There are some people, I think, who still use it only to insult, or describe, something that is gay. (happy, bright...)

I am not saying it's right or wrong to use it as an insult. But hopefully this will give you a new point of view, so you won't be so sensitive about it. I worked in customer service for 10 years, and i learned the value of not letting what people say, think, etc. bother you.

Comment Hidden (show)
I think you are old. Like very old! Maybe over 50?

Words change meaning over time! Like queer- at first it ment odd, now it means "homosexual".

And Gay didnt ALWAYS mean "homosexual". Back in the day it ment HAPPY! so by your logic he was just saying you have a happy backpack.... Gay more often means "retarded" now, so in reality he was saying you have a STUPID backpack!

And I'm saying you need to get your head out of your ass!

The sarcasm is hilarious but I disagree with you.

You people are so afraid to say that word thinking it would offend a homosexual. It's like you're so afraid to correlate the word "gay" to something negative. (ie. That backpack being gay would mean it's stupid.) Many words have more than one meaning. Stop getting so offended by the word.

nowadays it's hard not to use the word gay to insult something because... well that's the new word to use in place of much worse ones. just like darn instead of damn, shoot instead of shit, etc. gay is a replacement for words we don't wanna say.

I'm not gay and I don't say it myself, but what bugs me is when people say 'you dont' even know what that means'. Those who say it do know what it means. Being gay has always been seen as odd, wrong, broken, strange, etc. So when people say something is 'gay' they really do know what it means. Otherwise they wouldn't say it. It's a universal descriptive word/sentence (unfortunately), that we'll all have to live with. There will always be the 'N' word. There will always be Jew references. I'm Mormon, think of all the crap I have to put up with! But I do exactly that. I PUT UP WITH IT! You have to, otherwise you will always be miserable and confused about the human race and the things we say.

I say this ALL THE TIME when I get shot in the head on call of duty. I shot his ass!!! Lol. I have nothing against homosexuals or any sexuality for that matter, it's just force of habit. Most of the time when people say "That's so gay" they aren't referring to gays as bad. They don't say "That's so straight" really because it doesn't sound normal. Now when there's a conflict between two people and it's resolved, they might say "We straight?" "Yea.". That's about it though.

I rarely use the phrase 'that's so gay' because it is absurd as you say. However, I understand why it is such a fun phrase and occasionally I do say something is 'so totally gay,' or just 'gay,' because at the end of the day it's just funny to use a phrase that is so obviously self-defeating and meaningless.

who cares... would you care if you lived in a reverse world and people said that's so strait (if your not gay of course)? didn't think so. Stereotypes shouldn't bother people unless they fall into that category in my opinion and until the government makes it illegal or something it WON"T STOP!

A lot of people I know would describe anything as gay, e.g - The pencil i use in school or the fact I sometimes carry my schoolbag with 2 straps over my shoulders instead of one. Because 1 is supposed to be cooler

I used to think that way, then I started saying it ironically. I stopped though, but my friend started doing it ironically too and she says "That's soo gay -- in an ironic sense." You know I'm being sarcastic because I have a stupid tone I my voice when I say it and it's funny because you wouldn't think I'd say that kind of thing if you knew me.

It's funny, people where I live actually say that's straight like if they went to an amazing party they would say "that party was straight" but if something bad they say gay.

I accidently voted no but meant to say yes!!
When people say that it's a figure of speech they are not really refering to that object being gay!
I say " that's so gay" all the time not only do I say it but my mother says it and her boyfriend says it!! Not only do we say it about objects but if someone is being lame or being stupid I'll be like ur gay, I don't see anything wrong with it and i'm bisexual too.

Absolutely 100% agree with you! I'm glad someone finally understands that you're not cool by saying it.
