Have you ever said “that’s so gay!”? Or heard your friends saying it?┬áThe site ThinkB4YouSpeak.com┬áchallenges you to say something that’s original, unique, and not negative. The English language is huge, so show off your vocab and express your opinion without dissing a whole group of people!

Also, never underestimate the power of an invented word (talk about unique!). I give points to “awesometastic” and “craptacular.” ;) Got any other ideas for replacing “that’s so gay”? Comment me!

You know what That whole idea is So Gay!!!. I have a right to speech and if i think something is gay ill say it. besides the word gay mean HAPPY. How can a word that means happy offend someone who is homosexual. Get real, to many people take offense to things they dont understand. If you are truly proud of being homosexual then someone saying something is gay should not offend you. BECAUSE THE WORD MEANS HAPPY!!!! You choose to take offense of it. The website is bull, It gives you the meaning of the word gay but turns around and says dont use the word cause it offends homosevuals. Double standards are GAY!!! Dont like it to Bad!!!! Welcome to the USA keyword —> FREEDOM OF SPEECH dont like it leave.

jakeplayer,

Libraries are always interested in upholding your rights to say what you think! We fight for your Freedom to Read and we are by no means interested in censorship. For more information about libraries and their Bill of Rights, check out this site from the American Library Association: http://www.ala.org/ala/aboutala/offices/oif/statementspols/statementsif/librarybillrights.cfm

That being said, we hope that you live your life by the Golden Rule: Do unto others as as you would have them do unto you.

Thanks for your comments!
