true, he's ignorant, but at least he has a year to indulge in "Mysteries of the Gay" volume 1. In all seriousness, he was being silly, but fortunately, he is willing to learn, and I'd say that's a plus.

I feel that as long as he isn't being cynical then his question should receive an honest response. Some people honestly don't understand and want to be able to ask those questions openly, for example by ex asked his lesbian boss, "r u the guy or girl in the relationship" he wasn't being cynical just was curious and wanted to ask so know more about her. Some people are ignorant but dont mean harm from it. Is say answer him then move on. No harsh feelings, unless he was trying to be rude.

My question is why is the word used to describe or reference homosexual people "gay"? And why is the symbol must often used to reference homosexuals the rainbow ? This is very uninventive and plain.

It's not about the kids, I'd say it's mostly older people. I don't blame my grandparents tough, it's how they were raised and they have seen a lot of drastic changes already. But 30y/o people should really know better.

58- I'm not trying to say anything bad about your grandparents, but they should really know better too. One of my grandpa's good friends were gay, and he didn't give half a fuck about it.

I know, but a lot has changed the past years and sometimes they have trouble with how things are going now. When they were young nobody dared to come out of the closet and now they see men kissing and gay parades, I understand this is a shock for them because it's nothing like they are used to see.

96- No one should give half a fuck about who anyone else is screwing/likes to screw anyway. Unless that involves your significant other/family/children of course. Some things just aren't cool no matter how you look at them.

I would have to agree that the older generation is a lot more ignorant. I was talking to this older couple one day, like my parents age, and they couldn't believe how many gays and lesbians there are today. They honestly believe that there weren't that many of them back in their day. They think of it like it's some kind of sudden epidemic. All I could think was haven't you ever heard of Ancient Greece. It's so sad how long people had to hide and in many case feel they still have to hide.

Well, It'd be best that you explain to him that you do possess feelings, or that you look for different seating arrangments if he irks you that much. There is not much you can do at this point. Maybe you can still educate him? Although it might be too late.

I agree. It sounds stupid to ask, but maybe this kid comes from a reference point of homosexuality being a sin and had likened it to homosexuals not having feelings? Maybe this is your chance to spread a little education/common sense, OP. :)
