    To people who were young this millennium: do kids still play spin the bottle? And if they do, do they still observe the "no same sex kiss" rule or are they lightening up?

    I last played spin the bottle during the Nixon administration (2nd term, jerks); 2 boys and 2 girls, which made it less interesting, and the rule was nearest member of the opposite sex, which I suppose made it really less interesting. But in my elementary and middle school years the absolute worst insult you could come up with was "gay," and demanded immediate physical retaliation. I have heard that the latter is no longer much of a thing, and in fact the phobe will more than likely find himself (and it's always a guy) shunned. But then again my sources are not exactly from a cross-section of American utes, so that may not be the case in the backwaters.
    Graduated high school in 2000. We did not play spin the bottle, at least in my clique which admittedly was not the popular crowd.

    As others have said, "gay" was synonymous with lame for the most part. Though the worst insults I can think of back in that time were still probably the slurs derived from that (one was a word that rhymes with "maggot" and the other involved performing an act on a part of the male anatomy). Those were not routinely used, but if someone dropped one of them, everything else stopped until a response occurred.

      Kids in high school do not play spin the bottle. They f-ck.

      Kids in junior high school play "x minutes in paradise," which had not yet been discovered when I was 14. Dang it.

      Kids in elementary school played spin the bottle. The lucky winners went to the Fantasy Suite where they played doctor. I want to know whether they still do or did Pornhub ruin the mystery?

      • Knowing my biological father has passed, knowing my stepfather is basically human Paraquat, and feeling like most of the cishet men in my life wouldn't understand... I guess I'll never have a father-daughter dance.

                  • Thank you Harper's, for giving me a list of 140 people who are trash and whose opinions are trash. A whole lot of transphobes on this list.
