    Gay, or has had a chance to discover their personality?

    Dont say ‘gay’ when you mean homosexual. Dont let them control the language

    • Wirecutter says:

      They’ve been using the expression gay since at least the 60s or 70s.

    • California southpaw says:

      I still use “fag”.

      They’re not controlling the language. Words have meanings and histories (etymology). The word gay predates the word homosexual by centuries, and word use has changed over time.

      The word “gay” has been in use in English since the 12th century, from the French meaning of joyous or carefree. By the early 17th century it was used to refer to immorality of “any” type. In the 19th century, it referred both to homosexuality and to heterosexual promiscuity. By the 1930’s it was used primarily to refer to homosexuality.

      The word “homosexual” was coined in 1868 by a German psychologist. It has always been primarily a clinical term.

      The word “lesbian” has been in use in English since the early 18th century (prior to 1732).
      The word “dyke” started in the 1850’s.
      The word “faggot” goes back to 1914.
      (Both faggot and dyke became popularized in the 1920’s, originating through black cultural slang used in Harlem.)
      The word “fairies” referring to gays goes back to the 1870’s.
      The word “queer” has been used for centuries. It has specifically been used by gay men to refer to themselves since 1914, much earlier than they started using the word “gay” for self-reference.

      Again, words have meanings and histories. Our limited personal experience, within our brief lifetimes, tells us nothing about the usage of words, much less about who is controlling the language.

        Fair enough.
        But at this point I’m pretty much at the point of: Whatever terminology the Progs and their Gutmenschen toadies insist that I use (for anything), I’ll reject it on the general principle of BFYTW.

        And +5 to Gryffindor for correct use of “etymology” — it really bugs me when people confuse it for the other word.

        • rocketride says:

          Which other word? ‘Entomology’ or ‘etiology’?

          • Bacon says:

            Can’t speak for Mike, rocketride, but I’d guess he probably meant philology.

          • Mike_C says:

            I’m about 99% sure I’ve ended up as the straight man in this here comedy routine, but I’ll bite:

            It BUGS me when people don’t understand that “entomology” is the study of insects.



            [see what I did there?]

            Okay. I’ll see myself out the door.

        • Bacon says:

          Yeah Mike, I agree. The problem isn’t the words we choose, the problem is being accurate about the reasons for the choice. I don’t want us to give the progtards credit where it isn’t due.

          They don’t control the language, they merely attempt to co-opt it for their nefarious purposes.

  3. Critter says:

    Nah, that last guy’s girlfriend is the brunette to his right. He’s thinking, “don’t fuck up, don’t fuck up, don’t fuck up…..”

    • California southpaw says:

      No it isn’t. He’s sitting more tightly cross-legged than she is. Probably “superfriendzonersfershur!”

    • warhorse says:

      he’s thinking “dear god don’t let her ask the question “did you think she was sexy?”

      no matter how you answer that question, you’re wrong….

      • Bacon says:

        Sorry guys, it just ain’t that hard to answer stupid questions:

        “Did you think she was sexy?”
        — Of course, dear. She’s a professional model.
        — Of course dear, but not as sexy as you.
        — Of course dear, all women are sexy.
        — Of course dear, and I know you did too.
        — Sorry, I wasn’t paying attention, I was thinking about you.
        — When you ask a loaded question, you earn a spanking.
        — I’m gonna spank you silly for asking me such a question.

        Your answer is only wrong if you permit it.

    • Mike_C says:

      Maybe the last guy is sitting cross-legged trying to hide his erection. Punk kid. That said, one of the few benefits of getting old is fewer instances of the unintended salute to feminine pulchritude. (Yeah, I’d call bullshit on that too, if I heard it from one of you. But just give me this one, okay?)

      And boy, does Warhorse have it right.

  4. (((Doc B))) says:

    It doesn’t matter how hot she is, somebody somewhere is tired of her shit.

  5. hbbill says:

    #1 gets the benefit of the doubt. He’s probably taking a pic of the babe who lost her top in the surf.

  6. Bacon says:

    Anyone might be, but I don’t see anyone who shows signs of being gay in any of those pictures. Instead, what I see is people so whipped by modern culture that they avert their eyes from the others around them.

    MGTOW maybe
