The company has been slammed for “gay bashing” by the 15-year-old girl raised by two lesbians. Media reports revealed that the problem was the Apple’s dictionary. Apparently, the latter managed to hack off a huge chunk of the cargo cult’s liberal base.
A girl named Becca Gorman looked up the definition of “gay” in the Apple dictionary when she was working on a school project (the one about gay rights). It is unclear why on the earth she thought a corporation that thinks each sentence should end with the word “cool” or “super” could teach her anything about English. Anyway, what got her going was a 3rd definition for the word “gay” – it somehow meant “informal, foolish, stupid” and gave the meaning “making students wait for the light is a gay rule”.
Becca Gorman ended up with writing a stiffly worded letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook, who was recently recognized as the most powerful gay man in the globe. The girl claimed that even with the company’s addition of the word “informal”, the definition in question normalized the terrible derogatory twist that lots of people put on the word “gay”. Apparently, the girl meant that yes the word is used like that, but she thinks it shouldn't be.
The most surprising part of the story is that unlike most letters of complaint, the company acted very quickly on this one. Just an hour later a PR Applet was talking to Becca. Apple’s representative told the girl that the company was also shocked by the definition and that Apple would look into fixing this problem as soon as possible. However, it seems that the change is taking a while for the company.

|I am not against Apple since i also used macbook and ipad along with non Apple products, but It looks like the reason they quick to react for this matter I think in the potential Good PR they will get when they do that. Many complaints regarding how ipad locked from people who don't want to jailbreak it are always ignored.|
On the other hand, I'm glad for this little girl's shake.

|Just shows apple is for the gaylords|
|Alklimke, you have completely missed the whole point of the article while proving yourself to be a bigoted idiot at the same time.|
|One of the most bigoted groups on the planet are sodomites. If you resist their perverted sexual advances, you're called a 'bigot' or a 'homophobe'. If you want to practice sexual debauchery, then be able to accept the consequences of your actions without forcing others through legal fiction to help you do it.|

|Idiotic bible thumpers that can't think for themselves annoy me.|
Religion needs to go away before our species can evolve any further.
|It´s so gay that she acted like a c*nt over this. That is one of the modern/popular definitions of "gay",I don´t care if she likes it or finds it acceptable or not,but it´s true so shut the f*ck up about it and stop whining. I will continue to call things "gay" when they suck or are lame,if she or anyone else doesn´t like it then tough sh*t,don´t tell me what I can or cannot say and I won´t tell you which cocks you can put in your mouth or how many muffs you can munch. Rights go both ways,so f*ck off while I express my freedom of speech.|
|I agree with MenahunieIsRetarded and his freedom of speech! He has every right to open his mouth and share his profound thoughts, once and for all ending any lingering questions as to what level of intelligence he's able to function at, while showcasing his almost idiot-savant like exceptional use of the English written word. While its true the savant aspect of his skills have clearly not manifested as of yet, he has however mastered the idiot portion to the best ofr his ability.|
|While that IS a 'legitimate' definition 'in a sense' it's not a LITERAL definition. Had they mentioned it was a slang term and used in a derogatory manner - that might be a better explanation. I don't give a shit what people do. Wanna be gay - cool, knock yourself out lol Just get out of my face please. All the 'rights this and rights that' talking after you have parades where you walk down the street in NOTHING but chaps, with your balls hanging out, etc... You want respect - earn it like everyone else. Only thing worse that the idiot bible thumpers above (mudd61) AND idiots who think they're funny when they shouldn't even be allowed to speak (MenahunieIsRetarded) are the self righteous idiots like Topsided1...you avatar is of a baby rubbing himself - you're NOT that intelligent yourself bud.|
like Bob 83 said - religion must be abolished cuz it's just silly brainwashing and had caused more harm than anything all throughout history. In regards to the states alone - religion should ZERO baring on state rules.
And in response to THIS article - does google's dictionary also have "African american or black person" listed under the definition of 'colored'? Cuz if so - that's gay.
|Wow TheRitty no competition from me on self righteous - hands down you win.|
|Oh my,did the two metaphorical grandpas wet their diapers by getting all fussy about the kids saying "gay" in a way they were not previously used to? Awww,suck it up,language constantly changes through time,get the f*ck used to it because it´s not gonna stop for you schmucks who just can´t keep up. You do realise that "gay" used to mean "happy" or "carefree" before SLANG(YES,SLANG!) made it into "homosexual",right? Ever heard of "Gay Paree(Paris)" or "A gay old time"? Look,if I started a webpage now encouraging everyone to adopt "Topsided" as a new meaning for "One ball hanging way lower than the other",or "Ritty" meaning "A sharp intense pain in the butt",and enough people in the world accepted it and used it to the point that the vast majority of others fully understood the meaning when they said it,then it would become the new colloquial term for it whether you liked it or not,so once again,suck it up,it is what it is so too bad for you whiners,you can go boohooing like a little oversensitive b*tch to Momma but it won´t make a difference,so guess what..."gay" will continue to mean "lame",at least for most of this decade until the politcally correct whiners get their way by "telling us what we can and can´t say",and even then I will continue to use it if I so choose regardless if you think it´s ok or not.|

|Umm, The_Ritty, the LITERAL definition of "gay" is "happy, lighthearted, and/or carefree". Using "gay" to mean "homosexual" is SLANG. A dictionary needs to be thorough, even if some may dislike a definition or word. "Nigger" is still in all proper English dictionaries, no matter that the word is offensive to most. I find liberals and the gullible sheeple (re: religious) offensive. Does that mean I should be able to bitch about them and have them and/or their literature removed from forums I visit, (even the ones I'm not forced to visit any more than the girl in question was forced to use an Apple product, hence being exposed to Apple's offensive dictionary definition)?|

|If being a fag was ok then you yourself should be comfortable with it, funny how all the gays are always trying to force people to think that its not a sin, WHICH WILL CONDEMN YOU TO HELL.|

|The girl is gay end of story|
|We need somebody who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it's like to be a young Hispanic, the empathy to understand what it's like to be poor or African-American (Black) or gay or disabled or old - and that's the criterion by which I'll be selecting my judges.|
Remember everyone don't be 455h0LE2!!
|@14 is right in this instance and since we are dealing with what is emotive to the obviously homosexual members of the forum i will just say that the English dictionary has been bashed enough gay = Happy, Fag=cigarette and if anyone from the isle of Lesbos or males that have issues who like to be anally penetrated wish to change that because they believe their perversions make them special then they should all move to their own continent whereby they can enjoy their perversity and die without issue,thereby reduce the spread of aids and stop being uppity about everyone elses normality.|
|In regards Apple and it`s definitions it is wrong purely from the the point that it does not give the true meaning of the word but a colloquialism (slang) and not the true definition,as such by their own definitions they are gay.|
|ROFL ... WTG @#14 And #18 ... LOL Well said Mates Indeed ....And that me friends is The Bottom Line.|
|WTF!! That definition is fine! Gay is as in gay laughter!!.. What on earth is this country coming to!? "Apparently, the girl meant that yes the word is used like that, but she thinks it shouldn't be." Sooooooooo a 15yr girl thinks we should change a definition cause she doesnt like it.|
..wtf seriously what are we becoming!!! We are the USA. Act like it and not like you would in preschool...spoiled brat.
You taking on webster next? Or want to change our consitiution? God I hope darwinism makes a come back. HAWH HAWH

|Boom bye bye|
|THIS WHOLE SHIT GAY|
|Good Job Apple....Keep Up The Gay Bashing no matter what the cost. Gay is NASTY, NASTY, NASTY. If you don't know what you are look down. Gay in nothing but a life-style choice. They tear down the fabric of a moral society. KILL Them, Bash them, beat them, banish them, (Actually, The Tar & Feathering sounds good to me), get them away from my life, my kids, my family. Gay should not be allowed the same rights...and DAMN anyone who thinks otherwise!!! (NEVER, EVER BACKDOWN ON MORALS)||
