One of my co-workers (who I quite like) just described a cook book she bought as being 'gay'.
I looked at her, and said with a jokey-smile, "Dont say that - thats horrible!".
She laughed as well, but still had an uncomprehending look on her face.
I explained further... "Well, its like saying something is so 'Jew', or so 'female'. Its just not very PC."
"Yeah, my cousins say it too, dont get me started on the rant I give them, hehehe. There is nothing bad or wrong about being gay."
She looked a bit startled, but then added "Oh, well, i dont have a problem or anything, my sister in-law is one of those."
Oh dear. I gave her a funny look and she decided to stop before going any further.
The IT guy came to fix my co-workers computer and reminded me of what happended when he came last time:
He looked at me, and asked "Are you gay?"
I was lost for words briefly, then replied "Well, yes, I am, but thats a bit personal isnt it?"
He was looking for Gai, a woman who works on my floor.
