“When the homosexual community took an existing word that meant lighthearted or carefree and applied to themselves to avoid the more honest description of homosexual they created that slang word and now they want to "own " the word. Too bad, it was already a word in use. I have no problem with anyone's sexuality because I feel like that is their private, personal business but you don't get to change the English language just because you want to.”

Erin Leader on Nov 13, 2013 at 11:04:23

“We didn't take it, it was used as an insult first. Then we took it. ”

Erin Leader on Nov 12, 2013 at 19:42:06

“You have no idea what you're talking about. The gay community took the word gay because that is what society was calling us, we just took a negative and adopted it and turned it into a positive. Read your history and stop playing at ignorant bigot. You obviously do have a problem with some people's sexuality, namely gay folks. I didn't take or do anything with any words, apparently you think I'm much more powerful than I really am.”

“I think she needs to get over it! You don't get to change the definition of a word just because you don't like it! That is a true and viable way that the word is used in the English language. Also, I believe that the second definition (lighthearted and carefree) should be the first listed as it is the oldest definition even if it is not the most popular in today's society.”

fjoe88 on Nov 12, 2013 at 19:38:04

“Most people on this thread. (myself included) wouldn't have even known if the 3rd definition was eliminated. I never thought of that usage as anything but disrespectful. As far as first or second definition is concerned, the first definition is the definition where it is used most frequently.”

David N Taiwan on Nov 12, 2013 at 19:03:47

“I agree. Perhaps dictionaries could give us more comprehensive information about the history of a word, which would put it into some sort of context, such as "original meaning prior to 20th century 'gay and carefree;'" "First usage as 'homosexual' cited in early 1920's;" "First usage as 'lame' in early 21st century."”

“A definition that should be listed first as it is the oldest even though it might not be the most popular.”

“Actually, dictionaries list the definitions according to the most current use, not on the oldest use.”

“I agree, but... it is an antiquated definition and out of use. Too bad.”

“That mentality of "Sue, Sue, Sue" is the reason the mom bolted out of there. Because if she and the child had stuck around they would have certainly had a lengthy court battle ahead of them. That's where we are as a country and this is why people do what they do - to protect themselves. Until we get our court system under control and stop allowing lawsuits for things like "pain and suffering" for $5 million we will continue to think of ourselves first.”

“I agree. American children lag far behind other countries in academics but it seems that it is now more important to teach them not to use their imaginations or their brains to learn anything more than the current nanny state rules. This is exactly why America has become a laughing stock globally.”

“I can understand discussing this with your spouse and/or grown children but to have friends over for dinner? That seems a little much to me. I put my final wishes in writing years ago and told my children where they are. I update them on an annual basis and when I have major life changes. I have prepaid for and made my own arrangement as much as possible so that they don't have to handle that kind of stuff. To me dinner parties are for celebrating having those we love around us not for talking about death. BTW I do agree with the poster who stated that as a Catholic these discussions start very early.”

“Why would anyone want the ashes divided into 4 urns anyway??? I have never heard of anyone even dividing them into 2 urns!! I guess that I could understand with divorced parents and a minor child but not more than that. And why would you open the urn?? I am sorry but that just sounds morbid to me.”

lexierules on Sep 2, 2013 at 17:35:16

“I know many people that have split the ashes several ways for many reasons. I was sent some of my grandmother's ashes in an urn sent to me by my parents. I live across the country and was beginning a practicum for college, I couldn't possibly make it to her memorial and was devastated as I was very close to my grandmother. It was a way for me to say goodbye to my grandmother when I couldn't with everyone else. Nothing wrong with that.”

“Yep, morbid and ghoulish too, not to mention uncouth, crude, barbaric, and disrespectful to boot. The thought makes my skin crawl. I have several cardboard boxes with ashes from my cremated cats and dogs - I wouldn't dream of opening them to see if they're inside of a bloody plastic bag and if I did, I wouldn't give a hoot what type of bag it was. We had no kids but our cats and dogs were our "furry kids" and I loved mine as much as a mother loves her human kids.”

“There is a simple solution to all of this mess. Require that ALL service dogs have a tag that identifies them as such. Most (if not all) cities have laws that require dogs wear tags proving that they have had the proper rabies shots and such, so why not just have the person who trains the dog provide a tag that IDs them?
While I am thankful for the service of all of those who risked their lives for my freedom, that service does not grant them carte blanche in this world and they should not expect it. They went of their own free will unlike a lot of Vietnam vets who were drafted and got NO help when they came home!”

“Did you not watch the video? The man showed papers which proved Jack was service dog. And in a snotty tone, in his fake apology, restaurant owner Ireland says, "How much emotional support do you need when your eating breakfast?" Evidently Ireland, who looks like he needs a bath before entering his own kitchen is to ignorant to figure out that even those people in need of emotional support eat breakfast.

“Judges are supposed to be impartial and stick to the facts of law. Her religious beliefs have no place in the courtroom and this family should be able to name their child Messiah if they choose. Even though so many people don't like to admit it this nation was founded on the premise of religious EQUALITY not on Christianity. Not every American is a Christian. I can trace my family heritage back 6 generations who born here in the USA and don't consider myself to anything but an American ( with no ethic additions either) but I do not consider myself a Christian. That doesn't make me wrong , just free. While I believe that the child in question will come in for a lot of ugliness and bullying from the name his parents gave him, it is their right to give him that name and the judge violated her oath by demanding that his first name be changed. "Judge" is a position and a title but there are plenty of people with that as a first name and a few of them are even famous, for example, the actor Judge Reinhold.”
