A half-minute Don’t Say Gay PSA has gone viral after YouTube user playahata646 and his little brother demonstrated a funny and pithy way to discourage people from using the phrase.

“In 8th grade we had a PSA project. ( Public Service Announcement) Don’t Say Gay. I chose a funny way to present it. Subscribe! And thanks to my little brother for being the star!” He wrote on his YouTube page.

The eighth grader’s little brother shines in the clip after he slaps his brother across the face and admonishes his brother for using the phrase, “gay.”

“Don’t say ‘gay,’” he yells. “It’s mean, and it’s offensive!”
An argument I presented on Facebook, which then caused outrage because apparently I "crossed the line" and my response was extremely offensive. Here's what I said that was soooooooo horrible:

So what the hell do they want to be called now? I hate contrived outrage like this.

If this is about referring to things as "gay," let me explain something. A long time ago, queer meant strange and unusual. Now it means gay. Words change, and now gay is used to describe something strange or unusual. Or girly.

Anyone who takes offense to the word "gay" has psychological issues they need dealt with.

These gay activist types are making people homophobic. Someone who previously couldn't give a shit what they did now has to watch what they say in public, at the risk of losing their jobs. That in turn makes people scared to talk openly around gay people.

It really comes down to the bullshit that minority groups want equality... they don't, they want to be held to a higher standard than the general public.

The chick I was arguing with said,

"Words like Gay and Fag are used just like other words to bring down women and black people. It's not cool"

So I called her a fag.

if we can't say gay, how else do we classify them?
We can say gay, why would anyone give a small number of attention whores any of the recognition they are trying to scrape up.
I doubt any cock loving guy cares if he is called gay, or if someone is called a fag for exhibiting pussy behavior. (ironic, isn't it?)

This is just some assholes using kids to stir shit up under the guise of teaching them some lesson in public awareness and how to fuck with people.
