Why the word ‘Gaycism’ Should Replace ‘Homophobia’

“You, my friend, are a gaycist.”

This remains one of the best lines from Happy Endings, an ABC sitcom that ran from 2011 to 2013. Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) has set up Max (Adam Pally) on a date with a gay co-worker named Franklin.

“I thought you guys would’ve had a good time,” Brad says, innocently, over a video game. “I mean, you’re both …”

Gay. It’s a misstep many gay people are familiar with, even from our most well-meaning friends. You’ll love him—he’s gay! (As a general rule, hearing this predisposes me not to like the homosexual in question, if only to prove a point.) It’s the sort of comment that would be deeply offensive if it weren’t so naive…

It’s a non-starter, if only because it contains the word ‘cis,’ that is becoming more and more common.

When I first saw the title, I thought it had something to do with ‘cis’.

‘Cis’ means identifying with the gender one was born with (assuming the person was not born ambiguous, as a few are).

The latest craze is for transgenders to complain about a ‘cis’ problem: one could well be gay and still be strongly ‘cis.’

    I call it ‘Gaynauseam’ which is the continuous and non stop obsession with the homosexual lifestyle on the majority heterosexual population. One person who has this condition is non other than Michael Coren who just CAN’T stop talking about it. He goes on and on about this and even worse he’s only is fixated about Christian businesses who won’t serve wedding cakes to gay couples, those who oppose same sex marriage. Not once does he concern himself about ISIS and Iran killing people for being gay or how Islam treats gays only about those. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/opinion/analysis/anti-gay-responses-hypocritical-306237641.html#comments

      I can’t read the link. It wants me to login. But I’m way too tired to fiddle around it. But I’ll take your for it.

      Steve Sailer make fun of this, saying it’s the most important issue in the universe.
