At one point we start talking politics and during that conversation these are the words that came out of the best man's mouth: "I'm Republican, but I hate Rick Perry. I didn't vote for him. He's so gay."
My head immediately bolted up from looking at the dishes I was washing in the sink, but before I could turn around to look at him his mouth was already spewing apologies. "I'm so sorry. I didn't mean that...." He left the kitchen after his tenth apology, and later I learned he went and told the bride what he just said and apologized to her too.
When will straight boys learn? Being gay is a blessing, which means the word "gay" is a positive word and it cannot be used to belittle another individual.
