用法
The word gay is now standard in its use to refer to the American homosexual community and its members; in this use it is generally lowercased. Gay is distinguished from homosexual in emphasizing the cultural and social aspects of homosexuality. Many writers reserve gay for male homosexuals, but the word is also used to refer to homosexuals of both sexes; when the intended meaning is not clear in the context, the phrase gay and lesbian should be used. Like the other names of social groups that are derived from adjectives (e.g., Black ), gay may be regarded as offensive when used as a noun to refer to particular individuals, as in There were two gays on the panel; here a phrase such as gay people should be used instead. But there is no objection to the use of the noun in the plural to refer to the general gay community, as in Gays have united in opposition to the policy. See Usage Note at homosexual
单词gay 其用法已被普遍接受, 指的是美国的同性恋团体及其成员;在这种用法中,它一般小写。Gay 区别于 homosexual, 前者强调同性恋者的文化和社会方面。许多作家把gay 限定于男性同性恋者, 但这个单词也可用于指两种性别的同性恋者,当上下文的言外之意不太明确时,词组同性恋男性和同性恋女性 可以被使用。 就象其他从形容词派生来的社会群体名词一样(如,黑人 ), gay 如果当作为一个名词使用,指一些特殊的个体时,可能会被认为带有攻击性, 如在There were two gays on the panel; 在此处应该用词组gay people 来代替。 但是并没有人反对其名词的复数形式,指一般的同性恋团体,如句子同性恋者们已经团结起来对抗政策 参见 homosexual
