X is gay
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
X is gay is a standardized type of writing favored by those who believe that being gay is an insult and those who believe that the attachment of celebrity names to homosexuality is funny.
The format is rather simple, a male finds the name of a celebrity that they want very badly and inserts that celebrities name into the formula after dropping the place holder X.
Ironically, those that use X is gay against someone usually find themselves trapped by their own fellatio-logic, those arguments that can never be won because the person making the statement would much rather fellate the object of his scorn (or the butt of the joke) than tell the truth about his desires.
Like the Romance era before it, and the Regency era before the romance era, which was after the era that came before era's were named, the X is gay era finds its roots in the 1960s. During that time, the homosexual movement officially stole the word gay from the lexicon of the civilized world and turned it on its end. Thus gay no longer meant carefree and fun, but instead took on the connotation of men sleeping with men.
As a misnomer, "X is gay" is misleading, and adults who understood that stopped using the phrase immediately partly because it made them look gay. The phrase however found new life in the dirty mouths of high school jocks, and common every day twits who need to feel more secure in their own delicate notions of heterosexuality.

edit Johnny Bench
Believed to be the first such victim, the Hall of Fame catcher from the Cincinnati Reds is was the first such man to be tagged with the “X is gay” label. Bench, who was married, the father of numerous children, and the spokesperson for Krylon Spray Paint was victimized with “Johnny Bench is gay” and later "Johnny Bench is so gay” for no apparent reason, while Joe Nameth, the media darling of the American NFL Football world was left unscathed after posing in his panty hose for a national ad campaign. Now really, if you are going to call someone gay, wouldn't be the man in the panty hose?
edit Prince Edward
The youngest son of the Queen of England and Prince Phillip was tagged with “X is gay” because he enjoyed the arts, and wasn’t married to a woman at the age of thirteen. Making matters worse, when the Prince insisted in keeping his personal life secret, almost every member of the British Press took to hanging out seedy areas hoping to catch the Prince “cottaging” when in fact he was deflowering half of Cornwall’s nubile virgins. What they found was certainly worse than what they hoped to find. Pity.
Edward continues to shove the X is gay argument further into faces of the feckless as the only offspring of the Queen to have a happy marriage.
edit Henry Winkler
Henry Winkler, who made insane amounts of money portraying Arthur Fonzerelli on the television program Happy Days, and even more money as a successful director and producer was tagged with the infamous “Mr. Winkler is gay” campaign on Wikipedia in 2007. Winkler, speaking through his attorney, denied the story, and instead pointed to Jimbo Wales, whom he insisted was a bigger fag than he could ever be. At the December 2007 event, Who is the Bigger Homo, Winkler sashayed to victory over Wales because “everybody knows that real men don’t need to be surrounded by bikini clad women for promotional images – real men fuck their brains out after they have ripped the bikini off of them." Winkler also pointed out that real men have Captains that pilot their yachts.
CLAMP's X is pretty gay: Did you ever imagine Cardcaptor Sakura and Gravitation in the same manga? X Japan however are not gay; visual kei's just like Glamrock, and uses a lot of makeup, hair styling and tight fitting clothes.
edit Uncyclopedia convention
The allowable use of X is gay was decided at the At the We're Going to Party Like it's 1999 Uncyclopedia Convention in December 1982, User:Truman_Capote put the motion on the floor that only one tenth of one percent of the total disk space taken up by Uncyclopedia at any one time could be given to X is gay articles. (At that time the total space allotted to Uncyclopedia was 250mg.) This was seconded by User:Johnny_Bench, and the motion carried. That being the last business to come before that body, the lights went down, the poppers and cocaine distributed amongst the users and the music, and the attendees got turned on.
Thus, we find that when X is gay, it is more likely that the person telling the tale is really gay. For Uncyclopedia, this is Professor Magnus Fortesque wishing you a good night and good bye.
