          That's true. It's also still pretty popular at the school where I teach for kids to use the term "gay" as an insult.

            2018 is off to a good start but Sept/Oct 2017 was pretty damn massive IMO

                And it shouldn't be.

                I know your opinion is based on supremacy of state rather than an objection to gay marriage itself, but the EU has been happy to set laws that govern what 500+ million people eat and drink, where we can live, what we can drive, how energy efficient our light bulbs have to be etc - yet still defines marriage as between a man and a woman.

                It is amazing that I can go to the EU courts if I am discriminated against in any way by my country for being gay, but I cannot go to the European courts if my country refuses to offer me the equal right to access marriage. If the UK decided to stop recognising gay marriage tomorrow, the EU have no existing power to prevent this because of the gender bias definition they use.

                The US left it up to each state to pass its own laws on gay marriage and in the end made the decision for everyone, regardless of individual state laws. The EU should absolutely have done the same - at least a decade ago, and certainly by 2010.

                I find it incredibly disheartening that when the EU get around to changing their definition (as its ultimately inevitable) the UK - who already recognise same sex marriage - will not be in a position to offer weighty support in favour of removing the gender bias.

                they don’t stand for anything.

                    What I love about music is that I’ve only discovered or heard probably less than 0.1% of what’s out there - even if you’re disappointed in chart music, there’s so much more music out there from years gone by.

                    It’s the main reason I wouldn’t be without Spotify now.
                    I’d be lost without Spotify too, but I miss that thrill of discovering something new and following an era. I mean I’m loving JT’s new era and album, but I couldn’t tell you who the last new artist or new act was that got the music fan in me all excited.
                    I follow some people on last.fm and am amazed most of them have only scrobbled like 500 artists. In this day of Spotify! I've scrobbled 1374 different artists in the last two years. And every week I (re)discover others.

                    For me, some of my favorite artists have already started a new era. So excited 2018 is gonna bring it on!

                        I know what you mean. Kids use the word like any other common bad word. They don’t realize the actual context or meaning behind it. They are young and naive. Only maturity will educate them.

                          Detention instantly informs them it’s unacceptable and gives you a platform to address why imo.

                            And then we should forbid saying words like moron, retard etc as those are also offensive and official medical terms (or at least used to be).
                            be kind to every kind (also the unkind kind!!!!! )

                              I know "retard" has a horrible connotation (especially since referring to mentally handicapped people as "retarded" is outdated like calling a Native American person an "Indian") but never thought moron ever had any sort of offensive term to it.

                                I would never call anyone a retard, not even if I was trying to insult them - it’s a vile word.

                                            This is a music forum of course. But it would be interesting to see what people do for our planet.

                                            Some things I do:
                                            - not having children
                                            - driving our car less as possible (sometimes we don't use it for weeks on end)
                                            - separating waste / recycling
                                            - eat less meat
                                            - in the coming weeks we have a special "green" program in my class
