GayIsNot Stamp by GenreNinja GayIsNot Stamp by GenreNinja
I joined this ring on MySpace, and due to my somewhat activist nature I must support it. Please, if you support the use of the term "Gay" as no longer being an insult. Then Show your support by copy and pasting this stamp on your Journal, Page, whatever. or simply by posting "Gay is Not" somewhere, anywhere! Forum signatures, MySpace Blogs, LiveJournals, Bloggers, e-mails. Whatever.

To the 1500 of you who have shown your support for this stamp. I appreciate you!

EDIT: I thank each of the 2000 individuals who have shown there support for this stamp! :)

UPDATE: "I went to the first ever Louisiana Capital City March for Equality. I thought of this stamp as I walked through the streets of the capital city with my fellow LGBTQs and Allies. There was a christian man screaming "FAGS!" at us. It was ironic, everyone there was happy, smiling, and dreaming of a better brighter future. Except for him, he was the only person who seemed miserable and unhappy."

Much <3

I know just how you feel about that. I hear it a lot in my school, and it is often used as an insult. I just don't like it. Especially while I am gay myself.
Some words are just losing its true meaning.
I sometimes say it as a joke and my friends sometimes does it too and I am fine with it.

I dunno why people use mental disabilities and illnesses as insults. Like seriously, since when were gay, autism, bipolar, etc ever part of the adjective category of the dictionary? Never, holy crap why do people use those things as insults? I dunno, the world is messed up.

I put this stamp on my page a long time ago but forgot to leave my support, sorry. ;w;

I also think cancer and autism aren't valid insults either.

I also have aspergers. I don't necessarily know anyone IRL who died of cancer, but I once heard that the creator of one of my fandoms died of cancer in 2012.

There are just a lot of misused words these days, tbh.
First of all, Ebola.. That's a DISEASE. Not a silly meme to play with. Yes, I love memes, but you need to recognize what's funny and what's not.
Oh, and cringe. Yes, it's an insult. But it's more of to describe things that are badly done (like drawing scribbles and being proud of it, non-sarcastically) and not things you personally dislike.

No it's not. The dictionary.com definition of gay is, "of, relating to, or exhibiting sexual desire or behavior directed toward person or persons of one's own sex; homosexual"

Speaking of that, I can relate with this, because I hate it when people use "autism" or "autistic" as an insult.

...but unlike when gay is used as an insult, when I -as an autistic person- complain about my condition being used as an insult, people say I shouldn't take that seriously. Meanwhile, if someone uses gay as an insult, and someone complains, people say they did the right thing.

Seriously, that's a double standard that makes me angry beyond human comprehension.

I know this is from November but hi yes I am both bisexual and a high-functioning autistic and I relate entirely !!! Tbh there's way too many situations where someone just gets beaten into the dirt for sticking up for themselves in any case :'///

I am gay, and when people use gay as an insult but people correct them by saying it means happy.. I immediately get angry and feel insulted. I hate those people .-,

I always feel uncomfortable whenever someone uses "gay" as an insult.

Mainly because I have been called that few times in the past,even though I'm straight.

(No offense to anyone)

when homosexuals don't like heterosexuals because they've been absolute assholes to them for centuries, no power gets taken away from the heterosexuals
when heterosexuals don't like homosexuals because... bible says no, it continues the bullshit and discrimination that's been present going from heterosexuals to homosexuals for centuries

you can take a few people preferring homosexuals to heterosexuals
