I found this sentence.
Having a ‘gaydar’ means that you will easily recognize who is gay.
I am a little bit puzzled by the word order. I would await this form: Having a ‘gaydar’ means that you will easily recognize who gay is.
Would you please explain to me the logic of the word order in the former sentence above?
The word order is fine. We don't say "a gaydar". It's just "gaydar".
Having gaydar means that you can easily recognise a person who is gay.
Having gaydar means that you can easily recognise people who are gay.
If you said "who Gay is" it would mean that gaydar helps you spot people whose name is "Gay" (a female name in English). It would be like saying "Having Peterdar means that you can spot who Peter is".
Please be careful where you use this phrase. Many people find the idea of "gaydar" to be quite offensive.
