    It seems similar to how people use the term "gay" to mean bad or cheesy. To the speaker it may be just a slang word, and there may be no malicious intent, but it reinforces the idea that gay is bad for the people who hear it. Its useful to analyze how the language we use alters how society perceives different characteristics.

    He makes over 13 MILLION a year according to online sports stats sites, how many of us wish we made that! I suck at math but I figure 75K is 1/2 of 1% of his base pay. do you think he even noticed the fine?
