Perceived misuse of the word 'gay'

Published 21/11/2013

I FIND it highly ironic that gay rights group Stonewall has mounted a campaign against the "misuse" of the word "gay".

They object to schoolchildren using the word to mean "bad" or "naff".

I wonder who misappropriated the word in the first instance?
