Gay?

I read an article in the news that really upsets me. It concerned a former high school student in California.

The event took place in 2002. The student was a Mormon, as we should all know that most Mormons are a very kind and gentle people dressed in Black Suits. It’s actually hard for me to turn them away when they come to my door. Fortunately the Mormons do not send their Missionaries to Treasure Island, Florida.

I don’t knock anyone’s Religious beliefs, as long as they don’t infringe on my beliefs. If they attempt to convert me, I really do not mind, that is, unless they are of the Jehovah Witness or Pentecostal persuasion. I can’t perceive taking the Bible (one of the greatest works of fiction that was ever written) literally, nor can I see myself rolling on the floor of a church and screaming Hallelujah, Praise the Lord.

But if those are their convictions, so be it. We all have our own concept of what spiritually should be. Your God may not be my God. My moral code may not be your moral code. I accept this fact.

The high school student in question is now 18 years old and out of the school system. Noting that she was a Mormon a fellow student asked her "Do you have 10 moms?" Her retort was "That's so gay."

She was taken to the Principal’s Office (this is place where I had spent a lot of time in the early 1960’s for my unabashed language and off the wall comments in class) and chastised for her use of the word Gay!

Her parents sued the school system saying that they had violated their daughter's First Amendment rights when the school disciplined her for uttering a phrase "which enjoys widespread currency in youth culture”. This is a fact that I know is true, as my 30 year old son uses this phrase often to describe something that is “out of sort”. Our youth use this phrase to mean “That’s so silly” or that’s so dumb”.

However the California school system has a different opinion. They see using the term “That’s so gay” as Gay Bashing. Derogatory terms for homosexuality have long been used as insults. When I was young we never called them Gay. We called them Homos, Fags, Lesbos and swishers.

All of a sudden they came out of their closets and decided that they were Gays.

One of my pet peeves is the theft of the word Gay by the homosexual community.

From Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary (this is a 15 pound dinosaur which I received as a 12th Birthday gift from my parents – mainly so my Dad could always tell me to “Look it up”.)
Dad’s voice echoed in my head, so I did look it up:

Gay –
1. Joyous and lively; merry; happy; light hearted.
2. Bright; brilliant; as in gay colors.
3. Given to social life and pleasures; as, a gay life
4. Wanton, licentious; as, a gay dog.

Why did the homosexuals steal this word from us and make it their own? It’s such a happy word and most of the homosexual people that I have met have been less than happy.

The last definition is licentious, which is defined as lacking legal or moral restraints; especially: disregarding sexual restraints. I looked it up!

Does the Gay Community feel that they are immoral? I’m into performing perverted acts but only with members of the opposite sex. It’s fun and games for me.

I’ll probably be bashed by all my Gay readers for making this post. Hopefully, I’ll get some relevant comments for a change.

Personally, I could care less about a person’s sexuality as long as they don’t interfere with mine. I have no Gay friends that I know of; they might still be in the closet. Regardless they’ll still be my friends.
