Gay is not the word

I know it infuriates many of you but an enormous number of men who like men want nothing to do with gay. You can scream and shout that they are self loathing, you can deride them and call them names behind their backs (and to their faces) but your hysterical rejection of them only strengthens their resolve to have 'nothing to do with gay'. Goy is one example, My nephew (whom I love) is open about 'dating men' but refuses the gay label and respectfully asks people not to refer to him using that word. I think it may have to do with the idea that the 'gay population' while embracing trans, and drag and every out of sync genderfuck out there forgot to embrace the masculine. In fact, even on this board if anyone dares call themselves masculine they are immediately touted as a 'Mary'. As men who love men move more into the mainstream with marriage and other rights there is less need for 'gay' as a label. Can those of you who love the word and the identity allow this gracefully, or will you go hissing into the night?
