I have to say it definitely is because there would be no other reason to do it if the people who do it genuinely thought there was nothing wrong with being gay.

Can you provide some examples of what you feel this applies to?

Trust me, when you graduate from high school, you'll find this isn't a common activity among adults.

Dude, I give you credit.  At least you're admitting that you and your circle of acquaintances use homosexuality as a slur to disparage others.

When has FatBoy admitted this? What are examples of him doing it?  Don't make such accusations about a person unless you can back them up.  Oh, and how about providing us with some examples... or are you just trolling?

Yea. You keep that dream alive snowflake. 

The fact that you created this thread indicates you must associate with people that practice this type of behavior. I doubt it surprises any one here.

I really wouldn't touch this poll with a ten foot pole. :o

But thinking back to my junior high and high school days (and we are talking 1960-1966) it seems to me that references to being homosexual was more commonly used as a slur when aimed at boys. Somehow at that time it was less of a perceived negative to be a homosexual female, at least among the males that would use it as a slur against guys. Maybe it was because of what guys fantasized about what homosexual girls would be doing, and that was a more interesting thought (to males) than what homosexual guys would have been doing.

His response was a juvenile insult.  That's basically what he does instead of trying to answer a question like an adult without trying to insult.

So, your response was to be even more juvenile?  Yeah, that's the way to handle it :rolleyes:

By the way, do you mind at some point letting us all in on the point of this poll and topic?

More juvenile name-calling from you.  I doubt that surprises anyone here either.  At least correct your spelling and grammar if you want to insult others' intelligence.

Ask banner's avatar, or you could try to recall the avatar our resident "white guilt" poster had of Trump and Putin kissing.

I was just hoping to get you to have the guts to admit it.  Now that you have, you might want to realize that you started a stupid topic because  you just don't understand things.  In that avatar there is absolutely no gay shaming whatsoever.  It's not the gay aspect that is shameful, it's the relationship.  Doesn't matter that they are 2 men... you do get that right?  If YOU think of that avatar as gay shaming then perhaps it is YOU who has an issue with gayness.

When have you ever seen a gangster movie where the head of two crime families were talking shop while riding shirtless on the same horse together or making out with on another?
