Nine times out of ten you won't change someone's opinion by showing anger. So, this argument won't go anywhere.

Using such terms lightly doesn't mean homophobia or racism isn't offensive to you. I can't stand homophobic or racist people, but I make jokes relating to those subjects, because honestly, if we took everything so incredibly seriously all the time, we'd be depressed as hell. Some people are more uptight than others, and that's how it will always be, but don't get your panties up in a bunch over a joke - especially if they're on your side about the issue.

For the record, I've asked numerous homosexual people about this, and a lot of them use the terms "gay" and "faggot" jokingly as well.

Fuck that. I'm tired of the general attitude (here and on the internet in general) that the sin of getting "your panties in a bunch" is worse and more widespread that using racist/sexist/homophobic terms for shock value. Do I do it sometimes? Yes. But if thats your "go to" joke, then you need to kill yourself.

Not on metalsetlists.com and especially not when it's so painfully obvious that the term's usage in this particular case was meant as a synonym to "lame." If you're going to throw a bitch-fit (whoops offending women) every time this happens on the internet, I highly suggest you grow thicker skin or only visit nick.com.

Seriously Brad. You know me. I don't know if you could tell by my facebook, but I have gay and black (and Jewish and Indian and Muslim etc.) friends. That doesn't mean I have to be ultra-PC all the time.

Like Michael Scott said: "Did you know gay used to mean happy? When I was growing up, it meant lame. Now it means a man who is sexually attracted to other men."

NUCLEAR ASSAULT FUCKING RUUUULES

I think its the fact that its your "go to."

"Cameron, don't fuck up this thread" would have had the same effect as "Don't fag up".

Finding what you're saying offensive and thinking you mean it are two different things. Of course I don't believe you're a racist or a homophobe, but I don't think that totally justifies using derogatory terms that racists or homophobes would use. Personally, I'm not really comfortable with "faggot" or "fag" or "nigger", but I guess I can't stop you from using them. If it adds nothing to your point, I don't see why you would use them, but whaaaaaaatever.

And I swear to God if this thread turns into a place for posting unfunny Internet Serious Business memes for the millionth time I quit.
