    So I referred to some of my straight friends as "Breeders" and my gay friend gasped so hard he could have made a diamond in his asshole from clinching. He said I may as well start calling people "niggers, faggots, chinks, japs, jews, white trash whores". Is breeders really a terrible thing to say and is it comparable to some of these words????? Have I been ignit to this whole thing? icon_question.gificon_eek.gif

    I agree with rnch. I think they over reacted. Words like "nigger" and "chink" are offensive because of the context the arose from, not from the words themselves. If there had never been any inequality between the races, terms like "nigger" and "chink" wouldn't be any more offensive than calling someone a "fucker" or a "ass wipe." But there is also the context the words are used in today. My friends and I are not politically correct around each other. But that's because we care and love each other. My friends who will jokingly call me a "fag" in my apartment on game night, won't call me that out at the bar around other people. And the same goes for my use of politically incorrect words. Even if "breeders" was offensive, if you said it to your friends who know you and understand your meaning of it then it doesn't matter. I don't get anymore offended my "queermo" than I would "asshole" if my friend says it with a smile and passing me a beer. Words can't be judged outside of context. Without context, they're just sounds.

    Why is "jews" in that list? That's not a bad word. Jews ARE Jews.

    "Breeders" /is/ offensive because it is |often| used in a disparaging manner like "faggot..." take a look at Brian from QaF

    It depends on the context. Read above.

    Gays can be breeders to, just not with each other.

    But I like the dig it implies just the same.

    In my experience, "breeders" tends to be a gay slam against straights. I don't like it, and I don't use it.

    Take the wayback machine to the era of grunge and irony for the sake of irony:




    Breeder as a term was supposed to be offensive but really didn't catch on. It's supposed to be a dig at straight people who pair up to make offspring, like cattle. Since the result of gay sex is not babies, gay people are therefore more evolved than the 'breeders.'

    Jew is not derogatory. Hebe is.

    I still laugh when I hear it, but when used, is a nasty offensive term .....
    in the end we are no better than those who do the same to us.

    Calling someone a breeder sounds stupid like calling someone a asshole... So I suggest walking up to a str8 person of color call them a breeder and a nigger see which one gets the most reaction.icon_rolleyes.gif

    To be honest....when I saw this; I was under the impression that the subject matter would be about Gay Men who fucked each other raw and deposited sperm into their bottom's posterior. Now; that being said, as an African American, I am very careful of how I address people. It's a label that thrusted at and upon a certain group of people. I'm familar with it and I don't use it cause, if you call me a nigga?, I'm bustin' ya head open - til the white meat show! Be careful how ya talk to people.

    Name calling and labels breeds ignorance ....I feel it's more important to show respect for one another rather to deface ourselves by using improper and hurtful labels...my opinion

    One was going to point out that not only straights breed, our half brothers The bis do too, and pure homosexuals the real gays have also been known to use a turkey baster, and a sterilised jar, and nine month later snap crackle and pop, out comes baby. So not all breeders are straighticon_eek.gif

    Also when I come into contact with the gay scene in the late 1970s, we called women "fish" way back then.

    *facepalm* Really? Really? Offensive? icon_lol.gif
    Apart from the obvious problems with the power balance between the subject and the object, it's a rare straight person that is sensitive about their straightness. Come on now, who's delicate sensibilities are being offended?

    "Dude, I think that guy over there on the leg press machine was insinuating that I might be straight."
    "*gasp*"

    Do you like being called a faggot? If not then stop using the b word. They are entitled to choose how they want to be addressed just as much as you are.

    Wise advise from a young man! I wonder if the OP doesn't mind being called a faggot, or homo, or a sissy, or whatever else he may find offensive in relation to his sexuality!?

    The OP's bitch friend and any other silly ass homo in this thread that thinks breeder is anything near an insult is a fucking idiot.

    Try this: Drive down any street in the US. If you see a latin dude walking, hang your head out and call him, "fucking spic" and see what happens. If you see a gay couple, scream, "fucking faggots!" and see if it bothers them.

    Then try it with a straight couple walking: "Fucking breeders!"
    Do you honestly think it's going to hurt or anger them in the least?
    Thought not.

    That's why the term isnt an insult or at all derogatory.
