so a bunch of idiots decide to call people gay in demeaning way, it's suddenly a new movement.

the movement isnt to demean gay people. use your brain stem.

Well here's the question, if you have a friend who is gay, would you use the phrase as an insult around them?

thats an interesting point.

i have a bunch of gay friends and shit and i say that stuff around them all the time, but thats because i knew them. my boss at gamestop was gay, and i always made sure not to say anything that would 'hurt his little feelings' because its not wise to piss off your boss. but as i grew to know him, learned that he was actually not a little quivering vagina, so i was more myself around him and we became good friends.





I think it's simple.

Insults are things we consider negative.

Most people consider being stupid negative. Most people consider acting in an irresponsible manner negative.

The question is when we use insults for qualities that things we don't necessarily consider negative.

Is it negative to be fat? Do fat people have something wrong with them?

If we all agree that negative qualities are something we should strive to get rid of or lessen, does that mean fat people should stop being fat?

And what if I change t with a g?

And consider it for younger kids, probably in their adolensence. That must be really fucking hard on them to hear that their existence is something negative.

that video was an interesting watch. i somewhat agree that the makers of the game have a greater responsibility and probably shouldnt be doing things like that, but if i saw the trailer he is speaking of i probably would have laughed my ass off.. for that very reason too. you dont expect that from a video game company. lol!

anywho, i still think that people need to grow some balls and not be a bunch of pussies. everyone needs a little fuckin trauma in their lives. if nothing traumatic has happened to you, you haven't lived and people need to learn to deal with these things rather than crying about it. bunch of freaks.



i'm gay and i use the phrase "that's gay" all the time. what's the big deal? we all should learn to laugh a little bit more....instead of letting others make life miserable for you, turn it around on both yourself and them by simply just taking it for what it is...a bunch of gaharbling go garp from meaningless mouths. and laugh, a lot.
