It's about the language we use. If someone falls down the stairs and breaks their arm and another responds "that's so gay", they should understand that the words they selected are not exclusive to their intent. If the words are not exclusive to their intent, they shouldn't be shocked when someone demands clarification.

The same is true with tar baby and other terms with varied spotted history.

You get the respect you give. And if you're a Republican, you b*tch about paybacks being a b*tch. So sorry you're mad your guy is getting the respect you gave ours, Snowflakes.
