That definition of "gay" is definitely slang and should be identified as such. But it does reflect the say some people use the word.

We can hope that usage goes the way of "solid," but complaining to the compilers of dictionaries won't make it happen.

WE SHOULD HAVE A THOROUGH DEBATE ON SEXUAL BEHAVIOR AND DEFINITIONS AND THEN GET TO THE CORE PROBLEMS AND ISSUES. WICKEDNESS AND MANIPULATION ARE RIFE WITH HUMAN SEXUAL BEHAVIOR, AS THE PILGRIMS, EARLY COLONISTS AND CONCORD'S THOREAU AND EMERSON WERE WELL AWARE AND ALLUDED TO. WAKE UP PEOPLE TO THE CONSEQUENCES OF BAD BEHAVIOR!!!

Being a New Yorker, I think Connecticut causes bad behavior.
