Doug Wilson just posted to the "Gay self-appellation" thread and cited HDAS
"gay boy" from 1904.
So, I went to see the exact language. And then I read the cite above it for
"gay-and-frisky" which was rhyming slang for _whiskey_.
But the interesting part was the actual quote:
1904 Dunbar _Happy Hollow_ 248: Whath the mattah? Up againtht it? You look
a little ol' to be doin' the gay an' frithky.
Is there an earlier cite for imitating the stereotypical? gay lisp? Or, am
I just misreading this cite?
