Parents must be failing these days. Growing up I learned...

STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK MY BONES BUT WORDS WILL NEVER HURT ME.

Seems like we need an adult lesson on this.

I'm sure if somebody calls you a honky or a redneck or a breeder that you cry yourself to sleep at night

Because when somebody says one of those words, violence or intimidation of some sort usually follows, right?

"But other insults are A-OK"


I'm not against insults. Sometimes, an insult is an appropriate way to express your opinion about somebody else, particularly if you know the recipient to be capable of digesting it appropriately. I prefer to ridicule people for their opinions and/or actions though. I think some people take legitimate insult opportunities and make themselves look like a jackass in the process, but hey that's their choice if they want to come off as a jackass too.

Quote :
"They're just words"


I agree with this as well, to a certain degree. Somebody who is being verbally attacked can be commended for being resilient in the face of personal attacks. However, if the perpetrator of the attacks would simply refrain from being an asshole in the first place, even better. On the other hand, even the strongest of wills has a limit in the face of intense and constant belittlement. Particularly when you're not even the direct target of a slur.

Growing up I learned...Treat others with the respect they deserve. The sticks and stones lesson is not an excuse to be an asshole to others, it is an encouragement to ignore the assholes in life.

now while I am sensitive to the plight of the homosexual, what I don't understand is all the handwringing involved here.

if you want a real problem that involves gay rights, go visit Ghana.

OMF(sorry for the F)G, I never thought I would see the day when this site becomes a packpride 2.0....wow......I guess because the users are this site are getting older and this influx of students has long stopped years ago(thus, what students typically talk about and those older users on here did way back in they, no longer is for the most part because most people have matured..I said most not all)........packpride has a older userbase that frowns on stuff like this too.....maybe join forces now? Of course, chitchat would have to go....

Who is going to make the thread for the gypsies and non-gypsies alike who are offended by the term jipped/gypped? Or are people only offended when certain words have their meaning changed over time and become a part of the colloquial lexicon (god those last two words sounded pretentious...)?

I've personally tried to cut down my use of it, but it still slips out every now and then. It also has zero correlation to how I feel about gay people, but as someone once said - it's not what you say, it's what they hear.

This isn't one of my favorite words, but I've used it occasionally. I have to say I take the South Park route, as do others. It all depends, I'm afraid, on context.

Joking around with black friends, I'll make absurdly racist comments and everyone will laugh. If someone said the exact same things with clearly disparaging intent, they'd want to kick that person's ass and so would I.

If I'm insulting a buddy, I might call him a fag. Nothing regarding sexual preference is actually crossing my mind. If some redneck was saying, "Fucking fags!" at NC Pride, clearly he is commenting on sexual preference, and deserves to be asked if he's just mad that nobody is lobbying for the peckerwood's right to marry his sister just like his pappy did.

how can you not see that your "innocent" use of the word creates an environment where the malicious use of the word is more acceptable

How about a thread about the use of "retard" or "retarded". I guess that's still cool, right? I can't pick on someone by calling them a faggot but it's ok if I compare them to a mentally challenged child. How about "fat"? Is it ok if I pick on people by comparing them to fat people? "Bitch" maybe? Hell, nobody cares about women.

Wait, I got it! Maybe if everyone just grows the fuck up and pulls the tampon out of their vag (that's still cool too, right?) we can just realize that it's only a FUCKING WORD. Seriously, as much as some of you like to use "retard" and "retarded" perhaps you're the last person that should be bitching about what derogatory terms other people use.

some of you people are way too defensive over "just a word", if it's "just a word" then why do you care that some people have decided not to use it? nobody's telling you not to use it
