Get the mug
Get a That's so gay mug for your father-in-law Bob.
1. A critique or description of an event given by a person who lacks the capacity to contribute anything meaningful to most any dialogue; usually due to their lack of education, neanderthal brain cavity, and/or obsession with all things "gay".

2. A term most often used by closeted youth to avoid appearing too intelligent, too fashionable, too artsy, too worldly. Individualism here is not important, in fact it's discouraged. Fall in easily with your dumb ape male or amazon female mates and just refer to everything as "That's so Gay!", other than each other of course.

3. May also be shortened to simply "Gay." Thus eliminating the need to think or add additional words to a perfectly hoser comment.
Example 1: Rodney dresses well for school; his mates say "That's So Gay!"
Example 2: Chuck has an intelligent thought; his mates say "That's So Gay!"
Example 3: Brian watches a YouTube video about an opera singer and responds "GAY.", thus assuring himself that he is not suffering from sexual disorientation.
Example 3: Laura is just a young, impressionable, though not very bright youth. Laura sees a dog with a red collar and says aloud "That's So Gay!", then realizes that she too is wearing a red collar because her trailer trash boyfriend put it on her the night before whilst doing it "doggy style", and whilst thinking about his best friend Chad ... "That's So Gay!"

Get the mug
Get a That's so gay! mug for your guy Bob.
A commonly misused phrase by many people (mostly children between the ages of 9-17) that use it as a bad thing. In reality, it's meant to be used as a good thing. Gay means a homosexual person (gay is also used as an umbrella term for the LGBTQ+) or happy. Happy is a positive feeling.

The phrase is meant to be used as something someone likes, not what is seen as weak or girly or bad.
Sally: Did you see what Chris is wearing today, he is sooooo hot in it. I mean look at that jacket!
Holly: That's so gay!

John: I know, he's the coolest guy around!
