Speaking of Queers

A big social/political movement needs to be started, designed to reclaim the word “gay” from the queers and give it back to the normal people.

For decades, the queers have co-opted the word “gay.” The word used to mean “happy and carefree” until a Jewish writer (it’s always a Jew!) named Gertrude Stein stole it circa 1922 [1]. Ever since around 1960, in the Western world, the word has widely meant homosexual — which seems odd since those people are not happy people; they have suicide rates five times above the average.

The word “gay” needs to be reclaimed for normal people. A possible slogan for such a movement: “Always gay but never a fag!”

      Since at least 1857 the word was used for a prostitute.

      What an un-gay and un-carefree world they live in.
