    That Is One Of My Biggest Pet Peeves!

    another one I don't like is when people use gay as a synonym for stupid. I wish people would think before they spoke when things like that are said, it takes so much for me to bite my tongue and not ask if their parents ever taught them any manners or how to respect others at...

    It's Offensive

    I try never to use that phrase because I just feel that people who can't help the way they were born shouldn't be called stupid or made fun of. It's as wrong as someone making fun of someone because they were born with dark hair. It's just senseless.
