wow. It's weird - blows my mind that somebody educated enough to be a lawyer is so fucking stupid.
I am so frustrated by this that I must borrow a smiley from another board.
If he keeps that up, I'll just start calling him "fag" and "queer" out of spite. I also don't think that "gay" has become internet slang for a dissmissive form of "bad" that usually refers to cheap video game tactics, frustrating errors, and anything else along those lines.
What's funny is that I once got booted from a counterstrike server because I called the use of a map exploit "gay." What's funny is that I probably deserved it, as I continued after warned by saying, "You wanna ban me for saying gay? Well that's pretty gay."
Believe me D...the level of education does not necessarily make one Intelligent nor smart.
I've known many a High School Grad than can run intellectual circles around a Masters Degree holder.
Jesus fucking Christ. We're now banning dictionary terms?!?!? WTF is next?
Whatever happened to Free speech? Oh thats right its the LIBERALS THAT STOLE IT FROM US WITH THEIR PC BULLSHIT!!!!!
Just because they are educated, does not mean that they have common sense!
Some months ago, on one of my first few posts in this forum, I raised the issue of euphemisms. I pointed out that "gay" used to mean "happy and carefree". But the term had been appropriated by homosexuals to make them more acceptable to the mainstream. "Freedom of Choice" is another example. It really means "in support of abortion", but it certainly sounds better if you disguise it euphemistically.
This is the mechanism of choice through which the left attempts to put conservatives on a guilt trip. I mean who can object to "Freedom of choice"? And isn't "gay" a wonderful, cheery thing to be? You betcha.
Unfortunately this is the type of intellectual dishonesty that pervades the discourse on most issues today. And for the record - the left is not solely responsible for the demise of ethical disagreement. Conservatives have certainly helped it along as well.
EXACTLY Merlin. Thank you.
I said before, that the first term I was ever introduced to, to refer to homosexuals was, HOMO. After that, queer, and then faggot. I heard every one of those names LOOOOONG before I heard someone refer to queers as "gay". I wondered first if we were talking about the same thing. Then I wondered who would be STUPID enough to call a queer "gay". There was NOTHING "gay" about them. Well... there still isn't.
But, thank you Merlin for that excelent deciphering of whence came the term "gay".
They're still homo's, queer's, fag's, to me. "Gay" has absolutely NOTHING to do with being a queer.
More sanctimonious braying from the Left. Reminds me of the line from Scripture when Jesus was describing the Pharisees "they swallow camels and choke on gnats"
What he should REALLY be offended at is that someone called him a lawyer!
P.S. I've always wondered why homosexuals wanted to be called "queer", to me that term seems awfully derogatory. It's just like some women who want to be called "bitch"....Seems to me that some people just lack self-respect!
That reminds me of a list of liberal euphemisms that appeared last year in National Review....I'm posting some of relevant ones here....
