Like so much of the English language, ‘Gay’ has a variety of connotations. Here are the three most common definitions, told with pictures rather than words.
1) Oldest Definition.
Generally considered archaic.
Ex: The joys of the Christmas season left everyone feeling quite gay.
2) Contemporary definition.
Not just happy–Fabulous.
Ex: Evan’s not very good at sports because he’s gay.*
3) Pejorative Definition.
Most recent variant, circa 1980s.
Ex: He’s got a tattoo of a Camaro on his back, and it’s super-fucking gay.
Some rare and wondrous creatures manage to embody all three definitions simultaneously:
Yes, but strictly in the first sense. We got the pictures for definitions 1 & 2 mixed up.
Say it isn’t so!

This blatantly fails to encapsulate the broader spectrum of gay people. I would point out that there are also gay punks, jocks, skaters, Hip-hop gangstas and all the usual expressions of general culture and subculture are also represented.
Alas, we are thwarted once again in our quest to write the definitive treatise on homosexuality.

Yeah, that’s what we were afraid of.

One of our favorites. Definition #3 is the bad one.

Actually, I’m surprised the gay Jewish sports mafia hasn’t shut you down yet.
(The circumcision was just a warning.)

Oh dear, and I was having such a gay day until I read this.
Henry Miller lamented the loss of the word gay, happy gay, from the lexicon. Of course he didn’t write much about sports.

I’m sticking with my original opinion.
My BFF in HS was super guy and I just loved him ! he let me borrow his brand purses.
So at least he had good taste! When I was in college, my girlfriend’s best friend for years was a gay guy. And THANK GOD he was gay–he was 6’5, chiseled (competitive swimmer), and fairly wealthy. If he had been straight, I wouldn’t have stood a chance.
I never worried when she went out with him (and I never worried about her cheating, period–she was a nice girl–I never dated any other kind). I couldn’t see anybody messing with her with that hulking specimen of perfected humanity standing next to her.
Oh, wait, I meant super GAY ! Ha ha
Awww @ The hunk was gay? What a waste of DNA. ^_^ “
