Calling someone "gay" is the insult of choice for British school age kids, according to a new study.
A U.K. study says 83% of teachers say they've heard students use 'gay' as a put-down more than any other word. Not just reserved for people, some kids use 'gay' as a negative reaction to everything--as in "That movie was totally gay." And it's not just kids.
One Mom we know also admits to using "gay" as a way of describing something as "uncool." Some argue the term is "just a word"-- others think using "gay" as a negative description is condoning homophobia.
Is referring to someone (or something) as 'gay' off-limits in your home?
