    Re: Gay Marriage, is it right to stop it?

    What's off about this discussion is that people think calling someone a "fag" is just as bad as calling someone a "dirty hetero" or some word along those lines. There are several reasons for why some words are more offensive than others. For words like "nigger" and "fag," there are big enough movements, protests, and long histories that are tacked on to it.

    I mean, if you are really offended by being called a "dirty hetero" or something then you should know that there's really not much to support making that hate speech. Hey, its okay if you're offended, and I feel your pain, but good luck turning that into something that is accepted as negative in our society.

    Preferably I would eliminate any need for punishment against hate speech, since I believe it falls under freedom of speech, but as long as certain things are wrong and certain things are acceptable, that's how its gonna be.

    Television is not real life.

    If an officer pulled me over and said that, I doubt I would be worried about filing a complaint, lol.

    Let me elaborate, if some weatherman was going off about how " this weather is cotton picking weather, all you niggers should go out and connect with your ancestors" They would be fired, in a heartbeat. But if some guy on the street said it, there are no real repercussions, except maybe getting your ass kicked. Same with "fag", it's not illegal speech, but not popular speech either.

    Not true. Depends on the state. In illinois calling someone nigger or fag can get you arrested.

    Well here everyone, look at my avatar. Do you really honestly think "nigger" has any real weight with me? I would be more offended if someone called me a think lipped monkey.
