Haha woaaaaaaah everyone. I say it to my friends. Never meant with a gay context or whatever. If you don't agree with that, fair enough. I'm very pro gay rights. I'm just too lazy to click the links to figure out if he called an actual homosexual that word out of hate. Didn't mean to piss people off.

I mean... Was this meant as hate? I didn't read too much into the story but I call people ******s all the with no homophobic intention what so ever. If this was meant as gay hate, well then yeah, fuck that venue.
Surprised this guy hasn't been completely shredded yet

you should probably reassess your usage of that word. even using it with friends is perpetuating hate speech.

Cause if I start explaining it myself I'll most likely get frustrated with you. I'll just quote from the infamous Louis CK scene.

Rick: Well, the word “******” really means a bundle of sticks used for kindling in a fire. Now, in the middle ages, when they used to burn people they thought were witches? They used to burn homosexuals, too. And, they used to burn the witches at a stake, but they thought the homosexuals were too low and disgusting to be given a stake to be burnt on, so they used to just throw them in with the kindling, with the other ******s. So that’s how you get “flaming ******.” You might wanna know that every gay man in America has probably had that word shouted at them while they’re being beaten up, sometimes many times, sometimes by a lot of people all at once. So, when you say it, it kind of brings that all back up. But, you know, by all means, use it. Get your laughs. But, you know, now you know what it means.

Even when said to "friends" as an insult, you're propagating the usage of a term that is extremely loaded to a large group of people. tl;dr: Pick a different word.

Do you justify the use of all derogatory language with 'well, I didn't mean it like that!'?

This place is just very sensitive, so watch what you say!
Can one really be "very sensitive" to that kind of hate speech ... isn't that just being a decent human being?

Have you ever seen the Louis CK skit about the word? I've used it since I was a kid and it has never had a gay context involve with it. I get that I'm older and should have more sense now.I get that it's hurtful to some people but I would NEVER use that word out of hate to a specific type of person. I don't know if that makes sense. I didn't want to get into it with anyone. I immiedietly regret posting. Ha

I didn't really read what he said at first, just the latest message. But I realized my error.

I think we're all overlooking the most important part here- Judging by those tweets from Uncle Buck, John Candy must still be alive.
