Even though "gay" has been used for homosexual tendencies, as time changes so do the meanings of some words i.e. "gay" first joy or happiness, then homosexual, now this sucks

gay - adjective - something that is unfortunate for someone

"The people who say this definition is gay are probably right, because it is a point of rebuttal."

During the 70's when almost all societies would still prosecuted publicly known homosexuals; a group of homosexual men in Amsterdam founded a clandestine private club where they could hang out free of prosecution to have drinks, smoke, chat, play cards and whatnots. They called the club and themselves as "G.A.I." (Gentlemen Association International). As time went by, word of mouth had also attracted heterosexual friends to join and attend the club.

When this term migrated to the U.S.A. and other English speaking Countries, without knowing the whole history of the term, people assumed it was gay and not G.A.I.
"Are you G.A.I?" would mean "Are you a G.A.I. member?" But in today's world of: "Are you gay?" literally asking if you are a homosexual person.
