Sedative saidQuick someone think up a nastier word than 'Breeder'!
when some of my friends (by accident/inconsiderate reflexes) use derogatory expressions including the word gay, I just call them hetero swine. It's not very clever but it somehow gets their attention lol.
words are funny though, I sometimes like to use a single old expression or word in everyday speech as a joke, cos it sounds funny. It would be funny if you native speakers of english began using the word gay in the original sense of the word (with the risk of being misunderstood for a homophobe LOL).
try saying this to students: "I love this class, you guys are such a gay bunch"
personally, I like Luther Vandross' hit "The Glow of Love" with the first verse going:
Flowers bloom in morning dew
and the beauty seems to say
It's a pleasure when you treasure
all that's new and true and gay.
it's a very gay song, when I hear it I get in such a gay mood
