    lilTanker saidwhy? and what terms? and why are you letting them terms get to you?

    faggot, nellie, nancy, pansy

    I have seen them used on here...even in their true derogatory sense.

    It's not that I am "letting them get to me." ...I am just raising awareness to their use and saying I dont like it. I dont come to a gay site to encounter such hate speech. I would be offended hearing outside of this site and I find it offensive inside it, too.

    funny pictures

    I dun care, I am a pansy *nods* specially when it comes to creepy crawlies OMG I scream like a girl then step on them *nods* usually they crunch and that just grosses me out

    I once left a shoe on a spider for a week cause i was scared it would still be alive and run after me if I picked up the shoe... yeah don't ask me, I"m just the fruit who did it..

    I do not use those words, but you know the response will be that since they are so called gay words and they are gay then they can use them at will.

    I think to on an international site, that some of these words are used more often in jest in some communities, to hear lilltanker say something in his unique language, they sound different that coming from someone in the states, or at least to me.

    I call ma straight mates pansys.. but that's cause they are.. there a bunch of big nelly girls *nods* break a nail and they all cry..

    Hell I even call them poofs and fags and they call me one too.. the power of the word is only as strong as the meaning you place upon it.. or some shit like that

    but is appears that the aussies and the brits use them more often in everyday language or in the gay area of these two countries, and they sound completely different. But in the USA, we are conditioned to speak to each other differently.

    true.. I think it comes down to the way we treat our mates, we can sometimes be relentless in our picking on each other and there are almost no boundaries you can't cross (there are some of course, out of mately respect for each other) so things like poof, fag, nelly, nancy, pansy and so on don't really have the same meaning here..

    I don't come to a gay jock site to read posts that have nothing to do with fitness and see irrelevant kitty pictures.

    Who the heck put you in charge!?

    I think a lot of the terms referenced by the almighty Caslon - Caslon be praised - can be used both in a positive and negative way. In any case, I see no reason a person cant use it in a negative way if one is acting as a negative [whatever the word]. I try not to, and it's in bad taste, but I don't see how someone can take too much offense to it.

    This all goes to the argument about language. The guys that work for me and are my friends I wouldn't mind them saying that kind of things sometimes. Only because they are friends of mine. I know they don't mean anything offensive by using them. Now when a complete stranger hears them say it they may misconstrue the true meaning. Think of it in black/white terms. Many blacks may use the "n" word when they are with friends or relatives, yet there are others that are frowned on to talk like that. As adults we are ALWAYS learning how to communicate better w/our fellow man, ( and of course woman). I'm not getting all bleeding heart and all. I use curse words far more than I should. Its just another day that I'm allowed to live on this earth... I hope this makes sense as I just rolled outta bed...

    It's not the words, it's the intent. Around friends I can deal with the words - even use them myself in jest with my best buds. Howere, it's the unintended impact of those words on/in the greater community. We'd all be our better selves if we remain more aware of this uninteded impact on others. We are all in this together - more or less.

    You mean like ass pirate, fanny jouster, homo, queer, and pillow biter?

    Well it is a large group, and different people do different things with it.

    I think that's why you can block or ignore someone's posts...

    ...and then move on with life.

    BTW I love the cats.

    I only don't like it when the intent is clearly malicious. Otherwise... not a big deal.

    I'll admit to having used the term "Mary"...
    But I thought it was nicer than using the word cunt icon_neutral.gif

    And I only used it to piss, he who most deserved it, off.

    But I tend to want to see my tasks complete icon_wink.gif

    I would agree, often RANTS turn in to derogatory name calling to entire groups of individuals that is plainly assine!




    Perhaps we just join hands and sing kumbaya icon_biggrin.gif
    Who's with me?!
