I have seen many posters use "gay" liberally. Let's use gay in its proper place, and not allow our language to be altered for political fancy. Queer has also been removed from the list of usable words. Now we have to resort to strange or curious. Also, please note that the term "homophobia" is being used to imply that someone is prejudiced, when in fact the term "phobia" implies an irrational fear of something. Fear of flying, fear of spiders, fear of going outside, phobics usually not berated for their irrational fears. I think a term like "homosexual racism" or "homosexual bigotry" may be more fitting.
Hey Man is not to be taken seriously. He or she is a caricature. Think of a guy in a chicken costume running in circles while his behind is on fire.
