I’ve had a “gay” marriage with my wife, a person of a different sex than myself.
Why does the word “gay” mean homosexual? I know it’s become the common term for homosexual. But, nowadays, gay means only homosexual. This word is never used to mean anything other than homosexual anymore.
I attended a Christmas concert of school kids recently, and in “Deck the Halls”, they changed the words so that there was no reference to “now we don our gay apparel”. The entire line of the song was changed, I assume, to avoid saying “gay”.
Quite the opposite. It was changed to prevent people from making the argument that you were raising.
Which is funny because of the whole reason they co-opted the word in the first place.
For a great read, check out Liberalism - In the Classical Tradition, Ludwig Von Mises. GREAT stuff.
It is one of the things I despise about the Left, their Orwellian control of language and symbols.
I cannot even mouth the word diversity or look at a rainbow (except for a real one) without being irritated. That is their goal. They take a nice word like “gay” and hijack it for an abomination. Now, normal people won’t use the word. I refuse to use the word “gay” when referring to homosexuals.
I know it offends some people, but I view that as their problem. It offends me that they use the word “gay” in the fashion they do.
