you know how much i love that expression, right? almost as much as i like being kneed in the groin. sadly, i hear it all the time; at work (albeit infrequently), in the subway, at Squirt's softball games, and in my parent's dining room. it's an expression that has become synonymous with "that's so completely uncool" or, simply, "lame".
well, the other day i was surfing around Blogger, when i came across this blog entry, and felt compelled to comment. i won't bore you on my stance, since i'm sure you know how i feel by now. i am going to tell you that after a volley of comments with another blogger on the aforementioned blog (and several other comments, from other bloggers, which i urge you to read), i've decided to take back the expression and turn it around. i'm going to use it like a gay person to reflect what is "gay":
anger. frustration. humor. music. irony. being femme. being butch. being loud. being scared to death. being scared of death. being alone. being surrounded by people that are more family than friends.
over the last year, this blog has come to reflect me and my attitude about what's going on in the world around me. about a month ago, had a post where i wondered if i was too gay. a month later, i'm pretty sure i'm not. i'm pretty sure that there's really no such thing. therefore, i'm changing my blog's title to That's So Gay, 'cuz the more i think about it the more i realize that this blog is really really gay.
btw: i want to hear what you think, about the expression "that's so gay"....
