"Gayle" is Not Hate Speech

I'm banned for hate speech on WyldRyde. Yup. My name, you see, has the word "gay" in it, and thus "gayle" is hate speech.

This happens fairly often as it turns out. I've hit this issue on AOL, Microsoft's theSpoke.com, planes with games on their lcd screens, etc.

I have to wonder though. Suppose my last name were "Straighth", would I be banned as often? Why is "gay" considered hate speech?

(PS: I would check if WyldRyde banned "Straighth", but it's banned my computer completely. Anyone want to check any find out?)
