That's So Gay!

Above, is the youtube video of Wanda Sykes in a PSA. She overhears a teenager say "that's so gay!" and interrupts their conversation to explain why it's a problem to use this phrase by comparing her calling a pepper shaker "stupid" by using the phrase "that's so sixteen year old boy with a [puny] moustache". I can't remember the exact word she used to describe the moustache, but it's something to that effect.

It certainly grabbed my attention and I wondered how many others know about the campaign. How many teenagers would laugh it off and think the example she used could be easily brushed off in the end?

Are you aware of the campaign? Do you think it will sink in and make the phrase a thing of the past? (There are other celebrities with similar PSAs out as well.)

I remember these ads 3 or 4 years ago. I think if people today actually cared about what others thought, this message would be helpful. It only works if someone actually thinks about what they're saying, and from my experience, people don't.

I think the Wanda Sykes one is good. Some other celebs' versions aren't as good.

I think Wanda Sykes and Whoopi Goldberg have the best celebrity PSAs to date. Whoopi did one for bladder control issues.

I think people care, it's just easier to go along with the crowd than to make a stand. Fear of rejection, maybe? I don't know.

I think it is great, but I think it will take a lot more to stop it.

I don't say it, but that's just me. I have a lot of friends that do. I don't take offense, I understand that while it isn't nice and perhaps I should take offense that they aren't doing it consciously. Maybe it is just making excuses, but I figure the best thing I can do is not say it myself and encourage others not to say it when I have the chance.
