That's the way it works. Take any word or phrase you want and insist it's pejorative and make people stop using it. Faggot is a good example. So is niggardly. Two perfectly good words that the thought police have purged from practical use.
    You are upset that you can't use "faggot"?

    Ok, so by YOUR logic, are actual racists are justified because they believe so many black folks are niggers?

    So, the worthless identity grievance mongers have taken over the patent office as well. What a sorry sorry government we have these days.

    What do you think Snyder will ultimately do? Change the name, or leave it? Just curious what the buzz is among their fans (if you know of any).
    I hope they keep the name! This is so ridiculous when five people out of thousands of native Americans can force a change like this when the rest, who have been surveyed, have no problem with it. This just looks to me like an attempt on the part of government to give yet another business a hard time! :

    Greetings, tres borrachos.

    Just stating facts. I'm white, straight, and male. Sucks to be anything else.

    Greetings Pol! I also hope they keep the name. It will be interesting to see what happens here.

Today, 59% polled support it. The LGBT community is less than 10% of the population. Look how long it was okay to marginalize and alienate them.

    As far as the First Amendment goes, can anyone recite the first five words of that amendment?
    Thor, how are you equating the LGBT/SSM issue with this? Do you think the Redskins are attempting to marginalize Native Americans in any way shape or form? Do you think they were being denied equal rights somehow?
