Conversation in which I speak up and be assertive, or, telling her where she can stick it.

I finally did it! All throughout our roommate/friendmanship, she would occasionally refer to something being "that's so gay" .... I finally spoke up about how I don't like that expression today :) Gooooooo me!

Conversation
Exroommate: i just wish the car wouldnt be so gay...lol
Me: mmm, considering cars don't have a sexuality, I think 'being gay" would be hard to do
Exroommate: lol u know what i meant
Me: and i don't like when you use it in that context
Exroommate: sorry
Me: thanks
Exroommate: guess ur just different form me and my friends than...
Me: *shrug* i was taught that it wasn't acceptable to use the term gay in a derogatory way
Exroommate: k.
And now she's not talking to me. HA.

I have never liked it when people use the word "gay" in a derogatory way either. Good for you!
