You go girl.
I've been called a bigot for calling somebody I care for "gay" (they are, in fact, gay). I didn't use it as a slang term (like "dude, that's totally gay").
I sometimes slip up and say things like that since I used that term as a teen (heh, South Park has warped my fragile little mind) but I try my damnedest not to use "gay" that way anymore and I always apologize if I say it in front of somebody (half the people don't get why I apologize).
Being called a bigot for calling somebody gay who is gay is a bit bizarre for me. I don't think the word "gay" is negative when saying "I have a gay friend". That's not negative....if I said "my friend is a fag"...THAT is negative (I never use the word fag..ever)
I should sleep, I don't think I made sense.

No way, I totally get what you meant and I feel the same exact way. I hate how people cringe or look at me weird or try to tell me I am a hypocrite for calling my gay friends gay. I'm not! I know exactly what you mean. It's completely different.
