    For starters, I'm not really one to mind gay jokes. I don't want people to censor themselves just because I'm around, because that's lame. Some are at least funny, if tasteful.
    What really grinds my gears, is how same-sex relationships are always presented, in the media and otherwise. There's almost always a disdainful, sexual connotation, whether it be a written column or a stand-up comic.

    The use of diction is almost always explorative; an analysis of what goes on between the sheets, though It's not something I'm genuinely offended by.
    If I were to really ponder my feelings regarding this matter, it's a bit more complex than that. It feels more like an invasion of privacy, than it does words to wound.

    Conversely, I can understand why someone might feel upset in other degrees... I tend to look at culture, and the daily vernacular of said culture, pertaining to their chosen subjects of discussion, and why they might discuss those things and deem them as relevant or pertinent.

    Does anyone else notice this? Been bothered by this?
    Have you ever been put on the spot by an off-kilter remark, how did you handle the situation when you were put on the spot?

    I've said many times on realjock that even the most dedicated of our straight supporters will slip when not on script and say something degrading.
