Serves Them Right

Well, sometimes being obnoxious does not pay. Social conservatives are adamant about always using the word 'homosexual' instead of 'gay,' hoping its cold, clinical ring will somehow push back forty years of growth in understanding and acceptance of my kind... In fact, the homophobic American Family Association has a web filter which substitutes 'homosexual' for 'gay' in any newswire story.. Problem is, a rather famous American olympic athlete's real legal name is Tyson Gay! You can imagine the rest:

Tyson Homosexual was a blur in blue, sprinting 100 meters faster than anyone ever has.
