I've been watching the NBA playoffs and I keep seeing the commericals discouraging people from using the term "gay" to mean anything bad. I was wondering what people thought about this. Despite where you reside regarding the whole sexual orientation issue, do you think this is a worthy message to be sending out? I personally, have both liberal and conservative views and do not have any strong opinions about the gay issue, but it does bother me a little that people put so much meaning behind words. The same discussion can be made about the N word (which I'm forced to say in that manner so as to not be disrespectful to anyone). I understand that people need to be respectful and not use words in hate - but that could apply to any hurtful word.
Does anyone else think people are making more of a deal about this kind of thing or do you guys think this is a justified message? Just wondering.
