So if teachers in Tennessee can't use the word "gay", does that mean that students
who use it as an expletive (as in "that's so gay") will be expelled?

1. If there were justice, *any* hurtful, discriminatory term would not be allowed. That would also
include the "R" word, so popular among teens, and so destructive.

2. Why stop there?
I think they should ban use of the word the and the letter y.

I also don't like the word done.

And any word where the initial k is silent.

And any word that starts with homo-. Like homonym. Or homogeneous, homogenized, homophone. I mean homophone. Really. Is that how --- (aka formerly known as gay) people communicate? Over the homophone?

Or uvula, which, you know, sounds like, well, something else (thanks, Royal Pains (tv show) for that line).
