"That's So Gay": A Teacher Responds


South San Francisco, CA: Teachers 4 Soclal Justice met here last Sunday.


After a Not In Our Town screening, Jan Speller, who teaches English at El Camino High School, told us how she responds when her students say, "That's so gay."


What do you say?


 A few years ago I went through a phase where whenever I heard anyone call something "gay" I would say "Really? That _____ (tv show, rule, inanimate object) is homosexual?" This response must have been at least a little effective among my friends, since I stopped having to use it! Give it a try!

 That's so gay.....

"Not that there's anything wrong with that!"
