OK here's the deal... I watch sooo many gay themed movies and shows... AND in every day life where a gay male will refer to there boyfriend as "there mate" or "there partner" and this truly makes me upset. I mean are we (gay people) so low to the ground that we cant refer to or boyfriend and every straight person does!?!? I know when I talk about my boyfriend i use the word "boyfriend." Well what is everyone's thoughts on this subject?
