The discussion we had about how people use gay to say that something is uncool was very interesting to me. It doesn't spot at gay people used words like "lame" and "retarded" and say things like "stop being such a girl" or "man up" implying that someone how people with physical or mental disabilities are somehow something to make fun of and that being a girl is something that nobody should want to be? That's the problem with our culture. Not everyone is a heterosexual, white, middle to upper class, educated, christian, white man. But somehow we are all supposed to want to be like that? Anything outside those norms are bad? Acceptance of differences is not enough we need to embrace those who are different.
