Ramblin’ Educat is sick of her students calling everything unpleasant or distasteful “gay.”
My tests? Gay. Five minute passing periods? Gay. The rule against bringing your baby to school on carnival day (or any other)? Gay.
For years, I’ve been fighting it by arguing that my tests, the passing periods, and leaving your baby at home have no sexual preference. While I respect that these things don’t make you happy, they’re not homosexual.
Today, I hit a wall with “gay.” I have now decided that I will respond to that word in kind. I will use other laws from the book of Leviticus as insults.
* “Man, you need to quit! That’s so crazy it allows cattle to graze with cattle of other kinds!”
* “Oooh, you totally wear clothing made from more than one kind of fabric.”
* “You touch the skin of unclean animals. You do it alla time, so’s your momma!”
In response to a request for more Levitican insults, commenter Dee suggests: “Man your grain offering is soooo full of yeast!” Bev adds: “Man, this test is jus’ unclean, that’s all. Un. Clean.” From Ms. Cornelius: “Because of your arrogance, I will not smell your pleasing odors.”
There’s a lot in the Bible.
