this is the kind of thing where i'd love to see how they act when figuring out what to do about such an instance. do they feel dumb? are they thinking the public's being juvenile to point out such an 'innocent mistake'? are they seeing this as a unique opportunity to figure out how to keep the 'gay' filter on and have it only function in instances where it means 'big homo'? ahh, humanity!
