Like "That movie was gay"
I dont even think about it usually.
I don't even think about it either really. I'll even admit i use it that way sometimes as well.
Words are just Words. They can be used a million different ways.
the only word that actually bothers me (and I hate to admit this) is faggot. I don't even mind "fag", but faggot just gets under my skin.
All the rest just slide right off of me.
Depends on how they're used. In most cases, they don't bother me, but there are those times, when they irritate the hell out of me, again depending on the situation.
I'm with Sam... To date, the only time someone has actually been arguing with me, and happened to shut me up in shock, was when they realized that I was too quick witted for them, and just told me to 'shut you faggot'... I had never been called that before, and had not been prepared to respond.
It's so commonly used noadays, and even my closest friends use it, that I don't give it a second thought. I don't think I've gone a single day without hearing something being called "gay."
Faggot is a little over the top though, but it depends on the context.
my friends call me faggot, i call them faggots back. It's all in context. If they didn't like me, they wouldn't be hanging out with me
As for strangers, I could care less what they call me. Why worry?
i like calling things "little faggots" and i like saying the word "gay" to talk about stuff i dislike, and i think it is gay when all the whiners say the word "gay" used in that context is offensive to gay people.
Really? So....you use the word "gay" to describe things you don't like...so obviously, you must not like gays. So, using your analogy, I think you're gay and your post is gay too.
Coming from a non-gay guy, I don't like to use "gay" or "fag" to describe items or people. The way I see it, what if I used any other slur in its place? "omg dude that movie is so nigger!" I don't think it's a proper or courteous thing to say.
Yes, it bothers me.
I totally agree. Even when I was a little kid growing up and didn't realize I was gay, I never used the word to describe things I didn't like.
If I'm being funny and sarcastic with some of my gay friends, I'll say something like...."God 'Martha', you're such a fag!"..and everyone bursts out laughing.
And if I'm looking for a way to describe something I really like, such as when conversing with Sam Gamgee, I'll simply shout out, "God, that ass is so fuckable!"
I LOVE Pottery Barn!
You sure you're not gay!?
never know untill youve tried
My friends and I throw around 'fag' a lot, a la "Heeeey fag" to answer my phone or "you stupid fag" as they always say to me when I have a stereotypical gay moment ((last used, when they were trying to teach me to play pool, and I referred to the lil white thingy as the pool stick's 'nail file') or (when my friends car broke down, and when we looked under the hood, I commented that there is "no wonder the car broke down, it's filthy under there"))...
...a str8t friend was asking me about it, because he heard me answer my phone, and he always thought that 'queer' and 'fag' were the gay community’s most hated words... I told him we reclaimed them, and he didn't understand... So I told him that 'fag' is to gays as 'nigga' is to blacks... He got it.
First, I luuuuuv the pottery barn.
Second, you can differentiate between pink, salmon, and coral?? Hmm...
(Funny story, I was ordering a company shirt, and asking about the colors available, and was naming colors, and the man didn't understand me. He told me that “guys shirts only come in basic guy colors”--in case I needed to know, are blue, red, black, tan, and yellow. So I asked him if the blue was more of a carolina blue or a navy and if the yellow was a more a mustard or opaque. He told me that he can just order me a woman's shirt, because they come in up to 45 colors if I like.....? )
Coral has an ever so-slight touch of orange to it. Pink Salmon does not.
I'm really not gay ya know. I just pretend.
!!! WHAT !!!
...you should join the QAF staff, 'cause you good!
