I. adjective
This means generally homosexual. Usually it is applied to homosexual males, but is sometimes used to refer to homosexual females as well.

II. noun
A homosexual person, usually a man. Homosexual females are commonly called lesbians.

III. The original definition of gay was 'carefree', 'happy' or 'bright and showy'. It came from the Old French word gai, and arrived in English during the 12th century.

IV. These days 'gay' is, wrongly, used to refer to something (namely an inanimate object, for example a bag) that is unfavourable. Synonyms of this sort include 'sad' and 'lame'. They are all wrong, because an inanimatr object, such as a bag, presumably do not have feelings (sorry, bags, if you do) and therefore they cannot be sad, and this is a ridiculously derived insult. Bags do not have legs either, and thus they cannot be lame. But the supposed 'insult' of 'gay' annoys me most. Firstly because an inanimate object, such as a bag, cannot really be attracted to other things of the same sex. According to humans, as we made them, they do not have genders of their own.

Offensive, rude, and not-to-be-used 'synonyms' include faggot, fag and queer, the latter not being as bad and commonly used by gays themselves - but there are many more worse ones. For lesbians there is dyke, lez and lezzer, but there are probably far worse for these too.

A woman or girl who has many gay male friends is sometimes known as a fag hag.

Gay is not an insult.

I love gay people.
I. Two gay men live happily up the road. :)

II. The gays said they were going clubbing.

III. We'll have a gay old time.
He felt light and gay, and began to dance for joy.

IV. Omg dat's like so gay innit. Faggooot. :(

Homosexual, Dumb, Stupid, and Happy or Joyful

My Opinion: Do not get offended with the word gay. It is a piece of literature. And when being used in the right context and clearly stood that it was not trying to insult the actual homosexuality then there should be no problem in using the word. However when describing a person do be careful with how you use the word because that may set off an offense to them or others around you remember to be respectful.

1. Homosexual
2. Uncool, crappy, lame

2. A derogatory term often used too widely by mostly ignorant and prejudiced people, but sometimes used correctly (for example on South Park by Trey Parker and Matt Stone) to describe something lacking force, power or coolness because it is either phony and fake, or talentless, therefore rendering it lame and crappy.

This meaning is derived from the fact that to a strongly heterosexual person, the thought of sex with their own sex is repulsive, (regardless of how much they might love and respect any gay friends) and always will be. So when say for example a song or movie or TV show is considered 'gay' it expresses a feeling of revulsion because it is so full of lies, bad acting, false emotion, sentimentality, a cringeworthy lack of inspiration etc that trying to embrace and enjoy it by analogy is like trying sex with a dude when you're a straight guy.

Therefore this meaning is inherently prejudiced in origin against homosexuals, so should be used with restraint, but can be effective and hilarious when used correctly.

Gay: either you are born gay or not gay is one definition ..or you conform to societies expectations of what you should do and how you should pro create until one day eureka,you decide you haven't tried all your options..and if you did like a girl when you were a kid and you want to try it again..

There are lots of different types of being gay,whether you are a) confused b) bi -sexual..or definately gay..which is something a lot of people cannot do..without being rejected by friends,family and co workers..

Some people are even beaten up and threatened over this.Being gay is not an easy thing to come out and be straight up about..

Being gay is not positively illustrated on our radio stations ,t.v networks or in our religious and educational institutions,there may have even been some gay people in our history who were famous for inventing or recording something great!But because for instance..in some countries,like muslim countries being gay is an 'offence' punishable by death,these people could not come out.
In other countries you can be put in prison for being gay,being gay is something that a lot of people do not choose and yet feel conflicted about it.
Being Bi sexual is even harder,as you can be judged harshly by the gay community,Bi sexuals often times (no pun intended) lead double lives.
Gay people in the media are never represented they way they should be even on shows like the L word they always dumb it down,and make them all out to be promiscuis and nasty..Real Gay people in the 'party it up' gay community are rare,but when you find them,they are not anything like you see on T.V,they are straight up,they are real,and they are not fake haters(eg women with man issues,men with women issues or whatever),they are genuinely who they are.
