    This is why you shouldn't call it "straight".

    Those are just commonly used terms for homosexual and heterosexual, just like a commonly used term for you is anonymous chickenshit troll.  Homosexuality is a naturally occurring trait in thousands of animal species besides humans.  It is every bit as normal as heterosexuality, although in all reality there is so much variation in human sexuality relating to attraction, desire, and practices, there really is no such thing as "normal".  There are just varying levels of common or uncommon.

    No one knows who puts words to meanings.

    Additional detail:  

    Go straight to jail or straighten out the books or straighten out the problems in a marriage.    I had a gay time. He is gay.  (both is as in happy) 

    If that one is the best you can come up with,  you have lost the debate.

    That’s just a slang. I generally prefer the term heterosexuals and homosexuals

    1) Gay does not mean crooked it means to be attracted to same sex partners. 

    2) straight in this sense means to be attracted to opposite sex partners.3) what is perfectly normal is for about 10% of the population to be born gay and about 90% to be straight. There have been found to be gay members of about every animal species known to man.

    4) Don’t spread hate.
