When does free speech become hate speech?

When the word "gay" took on another meaning to describe something negative, a debate began over whether its use is hate speech or free speech.

In April, a California Superior Court Judge will rule on an incident in 2002 involving a girl being punished by her high school for using the phrase "That's so gay."
