I used to know a girl named Gay

She was a pretty happy person generally.

I once asked her if it was awkward having the name "Gay" as the word had taken on a new meaning from the one her parents probably intended.

She just rolled her eyes in a "I could you tales but it doesn't bother me" kind of way.

If all people were that easy-going....

Ugh, in those old 1950s pulps, every gay person had to die or at least be unhappy. It was the publishing code.

It has been my hobby the last few months to go through pulp covers going back to the 20's as I find them interesting and I noticed that. I always knew of that mindset but it is a little jarring to see it firsthand.
