Nothing wrong with gay, it's a term of endearment we use when we're being very caring, sappy and cute! We are using the old word Gay, which is to be lighthearted and carefree. Not the sexual orientation variety.
FYI: I'm also gay, only half though! Bisexual! Is that half? I've always wondered. When I dated my GF, was I gay then because we were both females and she wasn't bi but lesbian? Was I then only 1/2 gay or because we were together we were 3/4's gay? When I wasn't around her was I just bisexual and then when we laid in bed, was I gay then? Or was it only when we were intimate?
Shits confusing man. I could never sort that portion out. I just shrugged and said, "dun matter!"
Anyways, love who you love! It's 2018, it's okay to be gay, bi, straight, trans, pan, ace, etc.
