I Was Just Informed By a Gay Person That "Gays" is a Derogatory Term

    I did not even use it in the sense of "That is so gay" or anything like that.

    I used it in the plural sense and meant it as a blanket term to cover a "group of people who prefer their own sex."

    I asked what I was supposed to say instead; she said "Gay people."

    I think this is beyond politically correct. Am I supposed to say, for example, "Italian people" now, too?

    She said she was only correcting me so I did not appear "ignorant."

    I said I could Google a list of groups by and about people who refer to themselves as "gays." She said "that doesn't make it correct."


    Am I the only one who did not know this or is she just being way too over the top about this?

    I can't find anything from any other source stating this is derogatory.

    She was being over the top I think.

    What I always thought was odd was how the word "queer" seems to be an acceptable term within the gay community. To me the word "queer" means odd, strange, unusual. Isn't the main goal of gay rights to show the straight world that homosexuality is a perfect normal thing? Doesn't "queer" mean the opposite of normalcy?

    Well, that's another point. Gay seems to be a preferred and accepted form. There was already a big PC uproar over the use of gay in things like the song "Kookaburra." Gay can no longer means happy, festive, whatever. Now we have to be PC about using Gay in Gay content? I can't keep up.

    I think it is kind of like using the N word. It depends on who is using it that makes it OK. But I see your point; the use of either is undermining their own causes
