You know, I haven't even asked any of you to not use 'gay' as an insult. I was just noting personal disagreement; sometimes I like to express
Try not to confuse me with some stereotypical PC-pusher, cause you know I'd cry if anyone here thought that and then had a heart attack
after reading something I might say about Jesus liking teh penis of God up his
rear end. I just don't particularly find anything insulting
id be willing to bet my last beer that youve called something 'retarded' in the last 3 days.
I can't remember everything I've said in the last three days but I still doubt that. I use 'stupid' instead, except with maybe a few explitives
surrounding it to give it a little more emphasis than you might derive from the word 'retarded'.
But the thing is, calling someone retarded isn't really implying anything that someone such as yourself wouldn't have already decided anyway, given
that you'd already come across an actual handicapped person. I'm sure you'd laugh your ass off at him/her/it (the latter especially) either way;
but the way I see it, people referencing homosexuality as if it is something to consider insulting is the whole reason why people like you
even use it as an insult: there's nothing really insulting about it, and, especially when you even agree there's nothing wrong with homosexuality,
using the word gay as an insult just goes to show how culturally dependent some minds are. But, of course, culture is the reason some people
absolutely hate others, including homosexuals, anyway. I'm sure using the word gay as an insult has absolutely nothing to do with this whole
gay-hating cultural thing, though. Totally separate. Especially when you guys do it, cause you don't really have anything against those flamers.
