Sorry but calling anyone gay in a derogatory way is exactly the same thing. No matter what word you use.
This is my own, personal
, decision .. sorry, but you don't get to decide what is the exact same thing or not to me
. Feel free to hold any of your own thoughts or beliefs -- you're not going to some how convince me otherwise. Unless you're going to show me one of the bands I listen to on a regular basis somehow has snuck a word into the lyrics over and over and over again and I've missed -- I know where I stand on the issue. I am not asking anyone to agree with or do the same. It's my feelings.
|Here's a quote from Tyler the creator that kind of dismisses your Kanye point:|
Tyler, The Creator has since dismissed claims he's homophobic, telling a fan on Formspring: "Hahaha yeah, ive know for a while, he told me a long time ago (sic).
"It was just funny cause i was getting bashed as a homophobe or whatever and i kept saying dude how am i one? i have gay friends like what the f**k leave me alone haha. yeah thats my n**ga tho, s**t is hard for him but he did that."
That does not in anyway dismiss the point ... first, which song of Kanye does he use those
words in? Where does Kanye say shit like, "I’m not homophobic. I just think '******' hits and hurts people. It hits. And 'gay' just means you’re stupid. I don't know, we don’t think about it, we're just kids. We don’t think about that shit. But I don't hate gay people. I don't want anyone to think I’m homophobic."
Kanye says some stupid shit. He truly does. A lot of bands I listen to say stupid shit ... it truly takes a lot for me to feel this way about anything. But dropping the word some 200 times in an album makes it unlistenable to me, and is something I don't want to listen to or give any of my support behind. This is my decision.
|Fine you want two how about NOFX, listed in your favs, geez I know for a fact they do it:|
NOFX "Concerns Of A GOP Neophyte"
to the lord and creator
fucking communist f*****t
Please don't make me look up anymore to prove my point.
I don't think you get the point of the usage in that song ... for one. I also haven't listened to NOFX in years
for two. And I haven't updated that list in some 5 or 6. I've never even heard that song. It came out in 2010 (I had to go look it up, I didn't even know what album it was on.)
I don't understand why you think cherry picking a few occurrences is going to change anything.
