These were the words of Kurt Cobain.

"Gay" used to just mean happy or cheerful, or things that brought happiness or cheerfulness. But I doubt that's what he meant when he said it. Especially since this is Kurt Cobain we're talking about... may he rest in peace.

Very ironic considering how depressed he was

I wish these were the 1940s. Everyone was gay back than.

Kurt Cobain had this thing about guns and he eventually killed himself with a gun.

"I swear that I don't have a gun. No, I don't have a gun. No, I don't have a gun."

"He's the one who likes all our pretty songs and he likes to sing along and he likes to shoot his gun but he don't know what it means. Don't know what it means. Don't know what it means."

In my middle and high school years, gay meant "this is boring" "this is BS" "this is stupid."

It did not mean homosexual people.

There is speculation that he was murdered & Courtney Love was the prime suspect. I'm not sure what to believe except they were both very good musicians who made awesome music.

When I was in high-school it was used for both Lame & Homo depending on the context.

"lame" means unable to walk, but typically when people use the word these days that is not what they mean.

I didn't know that but language does evolve & change over time & words can also mean different things in different places.

Wait a minute.

You ...did not know...what the word 'lame' originally meant?

Seriously?

We all get what you meant. In kidspeak 'lame' means 'ineffective' or boring or inane, or like that. But it originally meant that atleast one of your legs didnt work (like you had a fracture). And you had to hobble on crutches.

I guess I'm half lame. I hobble around but not with the crutches. I jokingly call myself The Crippled Kaiser sometimes.

Kurt Cobain thought of himself as being dumb.

Not only that everyone was gay, but some of us tend to be queer, too.

BTW, I'm using the word "queer", as in "weird" or "odd" rather than an LGBT term.
