I would think Louis ck is the wrong person to use with his other ****** bit? Anyway, if it was the owner of the venue I could see boycotting it but if it was someone who put on the show I think it's overboard not support the place. If a staff member here called someone a ****** I wouldn't boycott the website I'd wait until they were fired, and if that didn't happen then not support it

Now THAT would really start a thread.

I read today that a Biology teacher was in trouble for using the word "Vagina" during a sex ed discussion.

A teacher who works at the High School I used to attend is resigning at year end for talking about his alcoholic past to his students and recommending they watch the movie Flight. Classy administration

I'm so sick of seeing this crap on Facebook. I'm glad to see tolerance works both ways.

That Louis CK bit where they describe the etymology of the word "******" as a slang term is completely incorrect. Using that as any sort of reference is misleading.

I mean for real he was just trying to be honest with his students and help them become better people. And the adminstration thought it was "inappropriate" of him to share that information, and forced him out.

I read this too and it's ridiculous. I had sex ed in 4th grade, and I went to a Catholic school.

On the topic of hate speech, definitely alot of it in the scene right now. Shit needs to end.

Tolerance doesn't work both ways. No one needs to be tolerant of hate speech, racism, discrimination, etc., of course you would be sick of this ... of course.

Missing the point entirely, but I'd be interested to see where your source on the correct etymological break down comes from ...

http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=******

"Especially used for burning heretics (emblematic of this from 1550s), so that phrase fire and ****** was used to indicate "punishment of a heretic." Heretics who recanted were required to wear an embroidered figure of a ****** on their sleeve, as an emblem and reminder of what they deserved."

... Comes close in sentiment if not the letter. The point was the feeling and associations with the word, not the exact historical definition. But the feeling it conjures to those around.

With that mindset, you're no better than people on the other side of the spectrum.
