    ‘Gay sweater’ goes viral, helps change conversation on homophobia
    News staff Mar 27, 2015 07:21:15 AM
    The ‘gay sweater’ is taking the internet by storm.

    The sweater, made from the hair of hundreds of LGBT Canadians, and featuring rainbow coloured buttons, was created by the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity in an attempt to change the conversation about homophobia.

    The sweater has gone viral, and is literally a gay object aimed at discouraging people from using gay as a negative word.

    Jeremy Dias, with the Canadian Centre of Gender and Diversity, said society doesn’t take the word seriously, and it’s time to change that.

    “You hear people say, “you know, that T-shirt is so gay, those shoes are so gay, that sweater is so gay,”" Dias said. “You just wants to turn around and be like, “no they’re not. That’s not gay, I’m gay. Knock it off.”"

    Dias said the sweater has raised more awareness of their cause in one week than any work shop he’s ever been involved with.

    You can help change the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag the #gaysweater

    Gay and Canadian in the same sentence is kind of redundant.

    Ezekiel 7:18, the verse that Jules forgot to recite when he opened fire:

    18 And they shall gird them with hair-shirts, and inward dread shall cover them;

    So is the word "Gay" going to become like saying fag? I thought gay meant very happy?

    Look back at the gay 90's (1890's) through the 1930's. Lots of references to gay being happy.

    When did this word get hijacked to exclusively be used for the homosexual community?

    This is a very queer situation.
