Connotation of Words

Published September 28, 2015 by meredithwyatt1990

There’s the word “gay” meaning happy or attracted to someone of the same sex. There’s also the world “lesbian” which is the female connotation of “gay” related to being attracted to someone of the same sex. Why?

Say the word “lesbian” don’t put a tone to it or a pitch just say it normally. How does it sound? Now do the same thing with “gay”. How does that sound?

Were you able to say either word without putting a tone on it?

“Gay” is all encompassing while “Lesbian” is tied specifically to females.

Why can’t we all just say if we’re gay and not have the gender attached but more all encompassing?
