The American Family Association has an odd practice of using "homosexual" in place of "gay" on its news site. (I guess "gay" is too ambiguous for them that they have to use that anachronism?) They've even gone so far as to set up a filter to automatically make the switcheroo. Recently, a sprinter named Tyson (you guessed it) Gay, made news at the U.S. Olympic track and fields trials. Too bad they renamed him Tyson Homosexual as in "Homosexual misjudged the finish...and had to scramble" and also, "Asked how he felt, Homosexual said: 'A little fatigued.' " Sigh. Battling stupidity will do that to you.

I live in the same state that he attends college and at first the headlines looked odd even when using his real name. I wondered why they had to point his sexual orientation out to us,lol. Anyway,stupidity always trumps common sense.

Oh god I laughed so hard at this. "Replace all" in editing fails. The other day (I think it was on Reuters), I saw a headline about this guy that said: "Gay wins Olympic Trials." Now not knowing actually who the guy was to begin with, I only sat a moment, contemplating why in the *bleep* a gay person had warranted congratulated for athletic achievement... :P They COULD have used his first name. But noooo, that would make it all too easy.
