    It's well within your right.
    The point you seem to be ignoring is that that is your opinion.
    You don't get to determine why people get upset or mif it is valid or not.
    exactly. I merely voice my opinion and I laugh at groups that try to obtain power by pretending to be upset-be it jesse Jackson and his racist extortion of businesses or hysterical gays who take offense for stuff that no one should take offense.

    There's no right to not be offended!



    Is it backwards day? How are all these conservatives arguing against employer/organization policy? What's next, they wanna make a union to address their anti-homo rights and the associated unfair corpocratic tyranny?

    As the official spokesman for the Anti-Homo Union of the NBA, I would like to say that limiting our homophobic remarks opens us to charges of homosexuality. This, in turn, results in an unsafe work environment both as a possible victim of bigotry and as someone needing to defend their honor in the face of untenable slander. In order for a more stable and safe work environment, we demand higher pay and unlimited homophobic power belchs.

    Power to the people!

    Where/wgat is the exact phrase he said?

    From my understanding he used it at the end of a comment, essentially saying what he said was not homosexual in nature. ie "i love michael joran, the greatest player of all time -- no homo.

    It is not a slur in that context.

    It was a slur... faggot, queer, homo... all gay slurs. Yes, Collins came out as gay and is publicly known as a gay man. That doesn't give people the right to use insulting slurs about his sexuality, any more than being obviously black gives people the right to use insulting racial slurs... especially on television. Hibbert is a jerk.

    No one in this instance used a slur about his sexuality, AT ALL.

    If you're going to call him a jerk, please....specify what statement he made that use a slur in reference to Collins?

    When did the term "homo" become a slur ? Gays use the term all of the time. At least they do on the Left Coast and especially in West Hollywood.

    It's bad enough that having a good old gay time no longer means that you had a fun time but today it means you spent the evening at a bath house.

    Of course it is. Who would presume that he meant it in a personal relationship way? Like he's announcing his engagement live after game 6?? C'mon! There was no reason for the remark and thus it served as a pejorative.

    And people say "That's what she said" do so because there's literally a female they know that said those exact same words.
