And we all know that couldn't happen.
I am tired, tired, tired of the misuse of words in order to hurt others. I've been writing referrals, assigning detentions, and generally waving my arm in defiance until I lose feeling in it and I fear it will fall off. Today, I hit the wall on the most misused and overused insult--gay.
Anything unpleasant or distasteful is gay. My tests? Gay. Five minute passing periods? Gay. The rule against bringing your baby to school on carnival day (or any other)? Gay.
For years, I've been fighting it by arguing that my tests, the passing periods, and leaving your baby at home have no sexual preference. While I respect that these things don't make you happy, they're not homosexual.
Today, I hit a wall with "gay". I have now decided that I will respond to that word in kind, I will use other laws from the book of Leviticus as insults.
- "Man, you need to quit! That's so crazy it allows cattle to graze with cattle of other kinds!"
- "Oooh, you totally wear clothing made from more than one kind of fabric."
- "You touch the skin of unclean animals. You do it alla time, so's your momma!"
I know you people can help me here, insults from the book of Leviticus...go!
