Yup, there was another skit for "gay" too, where they used Mr. Burns to illustrate the change in meaning from gay (happy) to gay (homosexual).

Little did they know they were documenting the culture war. They do that with "homophobic" too. I've never heard of anyone hiding in their house running away from gay people, in reality it's a cover to turn the feeling of disgust into fear and make it seem like a weakness.

But they don't like being called on that. "Aren't phobias mental illnesses? Why are you trying to stigmatize a mental illness?" or such just makes them uncomfortable because they know it's a propaganda word.

But it would be an interesting take after all their mental health advocacy...

I’ll guess I’ll have to find these episodes now.
