: you know he doesn't mean it to be offensive to gay people, man. Shouldn't you be offended that they took a perfectly good word (and name) and turned it into the meaning of 'homosexual,' making everyone named Gay change their names because of the homosexual commmunities acceptance of the change of the meaning of "gay"?
1.) Your judgement that the word was "ruined" by it's attachment to homosexuality is telling of some homophobia.
2.) The term "gay" was not self-applied by the homosexual community.
