I understand what you're saying; I'm suggesting it's within your power to not feel bad about it.

Yeah, but what you're asking is for me to be okay with inequality among man. And that's just bullshit.

frost, i don't give a shit about stuff like it either.
point is, many do, and you can't completely control that.
saying "you can control how you run, because i can too" to a one-legged guy is just as meaningless.

glock,
i'm not saying it annoys me, i'm saying the types that go out of their way to put it under people's noses and thus annoy many with it should lessen the stuff. no problem with what you're doing.

as for why others'd use those curses:
not caring about the original meaning of the word
just liking the sound of it
actually not liking those groups
being raised as such, force of habit if you will

Maybe if fags would stop being offended when they are called fags, this would never be a problem.

I have nothing against gays, lesbians, bisexuals, whatever. I accept them. Just like I don't mind black niggers, hispanic spics, Jews [lol its kinda its own insult these days, no?], zipperhead Asians, or any other minority.

I'm with Frosty. You're only as offended as you let yourself be.

Um... that's not even close to what I'm asking of you; not even in the same goddamn realm.

"You're a faggot and therefore cannot join the army" is a problem.
"You're a faggot" is not.

oh my god.
sorry rob but it annoys me to no end when people hear soemone say 'gay' in a context CLEARLY not bearing any derogatory meaning to homosexuals (gay ACTUALLY used to mean happy :( ) and they go all apeshit like thats offensive.

its a habit most people have developed, deal with it.
unless it is actually meant as an insult towards homosexuals then what the fuck does it really matter?

Clint Eastwood said it in Gran Torino, and I had never heard it before but I liked it so it became my standard Asian false-derogatory term. Used to be gook for me though.

Also, I forgot towel-heads, flips, dagos, guidos, huskies, and redskins.

Everyone goes through life being prejudiced against for one reason or another. You can either take it for what it is or try to change it, but the bad idea would be to tell people what they can and cannot do.

The funny thing is, I asked a question. I didn't tell her to do anything.

G_C, I agree with you on a lot of things but this is one that I cannot even see your angle on.

With slurs of race, sexuality, and gender, it really is stupid to get offended. I understand you have explained that you personally were not offended, but all the gay people in the world couldn't get everyone else to stop saying "gay" in the context it was used here.

"Gay" meaning "bad" is just a linguistic evolution, it's just a third definition for the word [unless there were more than 2 before it, but that's a different talk].

Yeah, no, it's not. 'Gay' meaning 'bad' is just a sad statement.

That doesn't make me any less right in saying that it's a linguistic evolution, and a third definition to the word.

I'd like to continue discussing, but the other viewpoints are so alien to me, I can't even refute them. Call me narrowminded, but I just don't see how it could be so difficult for an individual to shrug off a slur... especially on the internet.

some idiot is calling you names, wants to fight, keeps bumping in to you, for example.
