Who the *fuck* came up with that?!!

I personally heard someone use the term 'gay' to describe something stupid. This was the first time and I can gaurantee it will not be the last. God, that ticks me off so bad when someone says that. I've heard tamer versions of it, but I've never personally heard that expression. And the thing was, the guy who said it was talking aout *birds* for gods' sake, BIRDS. We were reading 'The Birds' (yes it was a story before it was a movie) and we were talking about why the birds were attacking the people and Alex (the guy) goes, "'Cause they're gay and stupid." I was like, "Excuse me?" My school's usually pretty good with stuff like that, so it really ticks me off.

Is that the first and worst thing you've heard? You must be in a gay haven..

I hear over twenty of these things a day. Most of them a lot more cruel and hurting.

Commenting on my own journal,

Commenting on my own journal, lol. Yeah, it's not too bad. Nothing beyond your garden variety homophobes. I guess I'm just not used to it. My family has a strict no-tolerance policy when it comes to stuff like that. (But being gay's still a sin, go figure.) But yeah, the worst I've heard is the 'F' word. (Not that one, the other one. The one that means 'bundle of sticks'.) Just kind of ticks me off I guess.

Yeah, I would say you're luck

Yeah, I would say you're lucky that this is the first time you've heard that. Most people get that kind of thing every day, if not multiple times a day.

I heard someone call a table

I heard someone call a table gay- I thought it was fucking hysterical (and offensive). I wanted to say that tables usually don't have genders, much less gender identities! Unfortunately that was back in middle school when I was tragically shy and quiet.
