So I was on twitter this morning, and Demi Lovato and Perez Hilton both posted the link to this story "My bullied son's last day on earth" well it got me thinking, why is saying someone (or something) is "gay"an insult? So I asked Snow White what she thought about kids calling other kids gay and here's what she said;
Snow White- "I don't know why they say it in the real world Gay just means happy! Maybe because gay is 2 boys together and they think that that's weird?"
Me- "So if you were arguing with someone and they called you Gay what would you tell them?"
SW- "That they were dumb and they didn't know what they were talking about"
Me-"If you were in a boy/girl relationship when you are older, and someone called you gay would you be insulted"
SW- "No it just means I am happy! I think you would be mad if some one called you gay because that would mean that you and Grumpy were both boys and your not you are lesbians"
So I told her that "technically" we are gay too, and then I asked her if we (grumpy and I) should be offended if someone were to call us "straight" and of course she said no
"because Grumpy looks like a boy and they might just not know better"
ahhh the mind of a 9 year old!

I hate that "gay" is used as an insult.
I correct my kids' friends whenever I hear them say it. Drives me crazy.
