Some phrases I'm tired of hearing

There are some phrases I hear regularly that I’m really getting tired of. One is the n-word, directed at anyone. I have yet to successfully handle that one, so I’m in the process of writing a poem about my process. The other is that things/people are gay. Ugh. I saw this video today on YouTube, and I think I might share it with my classes until they understand that gay is not an insult.  Thank you, John Green.
