Bainbo BS: Why gay, and not Gay ? (52* d) RE: BS: Why gay, and not Gay ? 08 Jun 10


No need to differentiate. We've got plenty of words which sound the same but mean different things. The context will pretty much always make it clear.

There's absolutely no danger of confusing a gay bar with the Flintstones having a gay old time. Unless you do it deliberately, for comic effect, say, or so you can manufacture outrage about language changing - which, as Emma B points out, it always has done.
