RE: I’ve had a “gay marriage”, in that, the wife and I have been carefree and happy and enjoyed our marriage.

______________________

The word “gay” used to mean happy ( as in the “Gay Divorcee” or “Don we now our gay apparel”).

But it has now taken on another meaning.

MORAL: WORDS and the way they are used, can be HIJACKED to make it mean something else. Orwell warned us about it.

And this is exactly what happened with the word “gay”.

The word “gay” does not have a double meaning. It has only one meaning now.

Homosexuals have been trying to hijack the word “happy” for a while now as well. But I guess happy is so commonly used that it can’t be done.
