Subtle (?) Homophobia Is Still Homophobia

Today in the car I happened to hear a promo for a game they play on their syndicated morning show called "Guy, Girl, or Gay?" The premise is that the hosts read the copy from a singles classified ad and the callers have to guess if the writer is a guy, girl, or gay.

Say what?

How gross that "gay" is its own category and that "guy, girl" are the defaults.

Anyway, it's probably something that 95% of the people listening either don't notice or think is funny and would suggest that I should just relax a little and not be so PC, but it had me fuming.
