I love you so fucking much.

I can not STAND 'gay' being used in the way you describe. I was constantly bitching at both my boys for doing it. And funnily enough, my 2nd child (oops, just had to correct myself because he recently came out as enby) went through a bit of time where they identified as gay. At that point, the conversation seemed to finally hit home for them.

I also absolutely loathe and despise the word 'fag' or any iteration of it. It's not allowed to be used in my home, period. I actually pissed off a gay friend, who refers to himself as an 'uppity faggot', because I cringed anytime he said it and asked politely that he just NOT in my home. I don't want my kids to think it's okay to call someone that, EVER.
