Is it politically correct to use the adverb gaily to describe children playing?

I wrote  a little piece with “gaily” in it but am unsure if it offensive to some people.I know “gay”

means homosexual,but does gaily too?I am a genuine enquirer.I hate to lose a good word.

  1. “Gaily” is a perfectly good word. Overly sensitive politically correct folks can just suck it.

    It’s a great word! Gay, after all, can still be used to mean happy – and is largely why it was taken by the gay community in the first place.
