Gays. As in this headline: After Calif. loss, gays get right to wed in Conn. I also don’t like using “blacks” as a noun. How ’bout “black voters” or “gay couples” or “gay Americans”?
I’m not sure why this bothers me so much but it does. Every time I see it. There are plenty of other words I don’t like, but it’s still Wednesday and this couldn’t wait.
