    A few of my friends have been known to sarcastically utter "LOL" when mocking AOL-speak and for some reason there has been a tendency to pronounce it "Laal" as opposed to "Lohl" (rhymes with "bowl").

    No one can explain how this came to be, but once we realized we had suddenly started mispronouncing it, we decided to keep on keeping on with our crime against language simply due to the fact the "word" is so inherently stupid, we feel we are truly doing it justice.

    I find it pretty offensive that you use the term "gay" as a derogatory term.

    What we really need for April Fools Day is for everyone to have unlimited moderation for any April Fools topics.

    And no minimum or maximum on the ratings of any post.

    > But it's YOU who thought of it as derogatory, moron.

    Your argument isn't strengthened by name-calling.

    > Gay could be in the same context as Cute.

    You might've had a point if a precedent hadn't been set in the previous 3 articles:

    [+] aprilfools, lame, omg, gay, thinkgeek (tagging beta)
    [+] aprilfools, lame, omg, gay, birthday (tagging beta)
    [+] aprilfools, gay, ponies, omg, pink (tagging beta)

    I'm not sure how the tagging system works, but Slashdot is a moderated site, and the use of the term "gay" in this context arguably should be moderated out. I doubt the mods would let tags through if they had racial or misogynistic meanings, and homophobia should be treated no differently.

    Just because gay means homosexual in some contexts, doesn't mean every time we use the word we are being homophobic. Words change their meanings.

    I know gay people who use "gay" in the context you described, so obviously it doesn't offend all gay people.

    That's life. Get used-to it. MAny of us are absolutely fed-up with moronic political correctness, and don't give a damn.

    How about "kids" being used as a derogatory term? How about "old men" being used as a derogatory term?

    Don't like it, screw you. Welcome to being a member of the public, and having to put up with others, as they put up with you.

    It's called "evolution" and it works with languages as well as organisms. Are you some kind of whacko creationist or something?

    I'm giving up mod points to reply to you.

    The word is used as a derogatory term because our dominant screwball religions decided that a practice seen in the real world, amongst every mammalian species, doesn't fit in with a heterosexual, go-forth-and-multiply world view. This filters down through the ages into societies and so-called "separation of church and state" governments still scarred with arbitrary facets of religion such as the above, much to the aggravation of the psychological and genetic sciences and the people you consider 'shit-eaters', whose lives and sexual habits you have such a lack of information about.

    You pretend to accept diversity with 'by all means, have your equality' and then condemn it almost in the same breath by inciting irrational hate by comparison with something entirely out of scope. These kinds of comparisons -- my personal favourite is equating all homosexuals with NAMBLA members -- solely aim to spread inaccuracies to fuel diatribes by other people. Your choice of imagery is specifically chosen to inflict harm on a cause you supported at the beginning of the same paragraph.

    You should be thankful that your genetic makeup lies within the boundaries that your society has defined as "normal". Consider the outright lies that America held as truth during the last century. Imagine the hate you would have faced if you were born a 'nigger' during the 1940s. That's fear of difference and stereotyping in action. They're all alcoholics! They cook their children!

    They eat shit!

    Oh, and taking offense isn't a voluntary action when the poster is so loudly, and without invite, pidgeonholing people they clearly know nothing about. This includes me. When I personally start telling you about the things I do in my bedroom, then you can tell me what you think of it. I didn't give you an invite to tar me with your one-color brush.

    I find it pretty offensive that you use the term "gay" as a derogatory term.

    I find it funny that you're offended.

    Perhaps you aren't aware that "gay" is in common usage by the youngsters as a pejorative term, and this is nothing but a parody of that usage.

    If you would relax your offensive sensors a little, we wouldn't have to parse words so carefully for you, and you would instantly become a more attractive person.

No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail.
