    What's wrong with that?

    I feel like it is expected that by 30 you will have a career that pays six figures.

    "Uppity," meaning snobby, uptight, persnickety.

    nah, RJ has its share of uppity gays. But not that many. but occasionally a thread will require some smelling salts for some of the ladies who enjoy high tea.

    Uppity can have several meanings, depending on the context and the speaker. Uppity can refer to someone who is flaunting their superior social status. It can also mean someone who is reaching above their social status, a "social climber." In this sense it can also have racist connotations, as applied to minority persons who do not accept their inferior social position.

    It is this last usage that may be used by some to describe gays in a political sense, for demanding full civil rights instead of accepting second-class citizenship and discrimination.
