On this line, I have long lamented the loss of a wonderful word.  That word is "gay".  Gay is supposed to be a homogeneous mix of happy, carefree, lighthearted.  It is a very specific description of a personality or character which has nothing to do with homosexuality, yet it has been stolen from the language, and there is really no appropriate synonym to replace it with.  

Actually the word gay has meant 'homosexual' LONG before the word homosexual existed. There are references of it's use in that way from times before American independence.

I don't think that's accurate. Homosexual is a scientific term. It's pretty old.

Gay is from the times of Henry VIII. I'd bet homosexual is at most 100years old.

Just looked it up and the first reference was from a German pamphlet in 1869.

In fact THAT word was hijacked by the gay community as it originally meant anything with a single-gender context such as schools that only admit boys or only girls (we now use the English translation instead term - 'same-sex')

Are you saying the medieval court jesters were gay?

This one is for @jamo There's lots of other errors too but that deffinately takes the cake.

I feel the "definate" and "defiant" opinions will continue to perminate the forum for quite some time.

You know I see that I've been quoted twice in this thread, which is fine I realize I don't have perfect spelling, but I will say that if I went through your posts or anyone's really I'd find a myriad of mistakes. Spelling and grammar.

Dude, don't take it personally.  This thread is mostly just for fun. ;)  I have quoted people in here a bunch of times, and I myself, have also been quoted in here too.  It's all in good fun! :beer:

 

P.S.  If you want easy pickin's, just go check out any post from @saevel25 and check out his "there's," you'res" and "two's." :whistle:  (But don't tell him I said that!  Shhhhh!!)

LOL I won't tell anyone, and I don't take it personally at all just making a point.

You should defiantly not take it personally.

I try not to take much personally, just like golf when you have a bad shot, laugh at it and move on.

@Golfingdad Hey no using me as an example.

At least I am proofreading more often now. I can say I am trying.
