I am curious though, how do you use the word *** in a non-derogatory way? I get the whole "wow that is a gay wing on that rice-mobile". But it's not like you walk around like "wow that is a *** pair of shoes that guy is wearing"
I mean really?
I can't even believe you would pull the 'freedom of speech' card on this one. There is a difference between having the right to express yourself, and just being a prick. Walking around using the word *** like it's nothing is just as bad as using a racial slur as everyday language. And I'm honestly surprised you haven't had your ass kicked if you use those choice words as openly as you say you do. Just cause a dude likes other dudes doesn't mean he doesn't hit up the gym every once and a while. If anything, its a double bonus for him cause he's bulking up while check out other dudes getting hot and sweaty. Just sayin. Big gay dudes punch just has hard as big straight dudes.
And I digress....
@supakat --- yes, you can't go back in time and take derogatory and belligerent slurs out of language.. .but you can take it out of your mouth, out of your text, and eventually out of your mind. Sometimes as we grow up and learn immature and stupid ideas. Part of growing up is stepping beyond what you've learned.
@katrecipie -- you're already making enemies, even if you don't know it. There's this thing going on in the world around you.. its called RESPECT. Show some, get some. Show none, get none. I can't make you be a good person -- that's on you. But the opportunities you might miss for lack of tact, respect, or otherwise, are likely to be more valuable than the effort it takes to expand your vocabulary.
