    Female/female attraction: lesbian
    Same-gender attraction: homosexual
    Male/male attraction: gay

    If females are "gay" then what are gay males? Lesbians, you are not gay, you are lesbian. Stop trying to steal all the adjectives for yourself. You already have one, don't be greedy.

    Well male homosexuals stole the word 'gay' from the rest of us. All historical texts that use the word 'gay' in the 'happy' sense will forever have their work laughed at and mocked because of this selfish hijacking. All homosexuals should be burned at the stake for this heinous crime.

    I think you missed the point of the thread. Nobody actually cares about losing the old word "gay", meaning "happy", because as you proved, there are many replacements for it.

    There isn't currently a unique word for male homosexuals though. Greedy lesbians.

    "Shirt-lifter"? "Uphill-gardener"? :holmes:
    Don't get me started because I won't stop :awesome:

    NB: This has to be put because otherwise people are gonna be all like "OH EM GEE, u r so homophobic!!1!!1!11!!!!1!!one!!e leven!!". No I'm not, it's all in jest (pulling your leg, yanking your chain, tickling your ribs et al), so **** off as I've been knocking up concrete in the rain today and can't be arsed to put up with any of your politically correct bull****. Thanks

    Because there is a 'gay community' which refers to both men and women. For example, the Pink Triangle in Newcastle is the gay scene, for both men and women.
    You don't have a specific lesbian or male gay bars, it's all mixed.
