    WASHINGTON, Pa. (KDKA) – A Washington city councilman has been reprimanded, for calling a friend gay while sending out an email testing a citywide alert system.

    The Observer-Reporter says Councilman Matt Staniszeweski sent out an email alert that read, “Alert: This is an test. Brian is gay.”

    The paper reports during Monday’s city council meeting, Mayor Brenda Davis reprimanded Staniszeweski for the unprofessional remark.

    Davis reportedly said, “This is inappropriate for the city of Washington. Coming from the city of Washington, it does not look good for us.”

    I think that's quite funny though, I bet they chuckled when they saw it but just can't admit it.

    Why I do find it funny, you have to remember that these are government employees abusing the emergency alert email system.

    it was hardly abusive, to be honest. it was a test, it stated it was a test, and then the guy put an arguably humorist sentence on the end for fun.

    it's unprofessional as fuck, but it's not abusing power.

    Come on man, it was a damn test. It's not like it was "OH MY GOD WE'RE BEING BOMBED WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON WE'RE NOT EVEN AT WAR. ALSO, BRIAN IS A GIGANTIC GAYBO."

    The article isn't immediately clear if it actually amounted to several thousand people being told "Brian is gay" or not.

    As a citizen running for council, Even i laughed at this. I'd want to know who really made the complaint, probably not even the ones who would have been offended.

    A seven year old can maintain the citywide alert system? Amazing!

    that's because calling someone straight isn't particularly insulting.

    no-one would have batted an eyelid if he'd written "brian has a silly nose" either for the same reason.

    And calling someone gay is? Homophobe.

    Like it or not, many people still use 'gay' as an insult. It was intended as one (if only humourously) in this little note.

    I'm gay and I find this offensive!!

    I've said some pretty good things in shoutdown messages. The comedic hurr option also applies to testing as well.

    So now that everyone freaking out at the slightest hint that a gun can be involved going as far as closing down schools for playing Fresh Prince song, now it's time to freak out every time people say "gay". Great.
