We've succumbed to the temptation to dub the ongoing inquiry into what it means to be gay in which we're engaged "W.I.G.", short for "What. Is. Gay.".
Just as a refresher, the imminent arrival of Pride and the recent discussions regarding whether some one can be "post-homosexual" have raised some interesting questions for us here at FYF, including what is meant by "gay", particularly in the statement, "I'm gay.". We're also curious about whether the meaning of "gay" itself has changed since the word was first used to refer to homosexuality in the late 19th or early 20th century.
In this particular post, there's a rather less serious tone and inquiry before us, considering we're asking whether the above photo captures a gay child riding his unicorn bike, and - if so - why riding a unicorn bike makes him gay. ShaquAndre, I think you'd better weigh in on this one...
Additionally, we chuckled over the clever, tongue-in-...well HAND-in-cheek, perhaps, video below from YouTube-lebrity Gay Carrington and present it here for both comic (albeit slightly sinister) relief and as a point of (rather obvious) clarification regarding Gay - the name - vs. gay - the identity.
