GLSEN Spins on "That's So Gay" Catchphrase

Look out for adverts mocking the infamous phrase "that's so gay" by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). This outreach is being coordinated by their 'Think Before You Speak' campaign and has released several billboards, print ads, TV, radio, and internet graphics throughout the country in an effort to get students to stop using language that is hurtful towards LGBT students. The campaign seeks to make the phrase look outdated, meaningless, and ignorant.

Below are some of the new posters that have been released featuring a jock, cheerleader, and a gamer that attempt to make the point.

Sign the pledge and come up with something original to replace "that's so gay" with something that actually makes sense!

so, stereotyping and insulting other groups of people is a good response to being insulted? not sure i can get on board with that.
