    Why are gay people called gay?  Gay, bender, and many other words are the same thing ... slang.  The correct term is homosexual.  Most slang words are considered pejoratives and most of those are censored on Yahoo Answers.  Slang words have varied over time; in 19th century Europe the term was "dandy".  In the late 19th century western United States the term was "pegger".  "Gay", however, is the socially acceptable term for homosexual; though "gay" now has multiple meanings as well, including "out of style" or "weak".
