I think Colbert nailed it when he said that using the R-word is so gay. It gets used a lot as a common colloquialism, so people don't really consider the meaning or how much mean-spiritedness lies behind it's original use as an insult. Attempts to raise an awareness of that shouldn't be thought of as forms of political correctness.
