To better follow the theme here presented I'd suggest you read the comments posted to yesterdays notice on "Editing and Censorship". I hope this may pique and stimulate some further sharing of insights and ideas.
Coop's comment is interesting. But if too many people have warped ideas about what being gay means because of gay pornography, why don't people have warped ideas about what being straight means because of straight pornography? Just wondering. :-) As to the word 'gay', way back in the 1600s, it had connotations of immorality. So there ya go... Do a Wikipedia search of the origin of the word 'gay'. It's interesting. I should stop using the word interesting. Maybe I have a problem with finding too many things interesting. Hehe.
Hmmm. . . .since when is the seeking of wisdom a problem? I'd think intellectual laziness and somnolescence is more of a problem. .but then the latter persons find any seeking a problem. Nonne? So. . .even in the 1600s 'gay' was considered immoral. . . hmmmm. . . justino
WoWzzer! ;-) Who'd-a-thunk?! lol I followed Gary's suggestion, do a Wikipedia search. . .I did it! Lots of "interesting" and even "amazing" info there. Thanks Gary. You have contributed a section to my gay studies section of Intro Psych. Daaaaaduuuh! Behold, the Gary Kelly Wikipedia Search of the Etymology of the Word and Concept GAY in Society since the early 1600s.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Here it is. Do a search. Broaden your concepts. So "interesting" as to be almost "so gay". justin o'shea
