Once, when I was a little kid, I used the word 'gay' in a derogatory context because at the time I didn't actually know what it meant. My mom freaked out (that I would dare use it to insult people), then explained what the word meant and I was like "people get upset over that?!"

But I'm so so so thankful that my parents raised me to appreciate that differences in human sexuality are natural and not shameful.
