    Since when is calling someone down for using hate terms considerd PC run amok? I do not care if it is Kobe, Obama or the boy next door: you say stupid crap like this? I am gonna call you down for it and that is the way it should be. Or should we remain silent and give good ole Kobe a pass for being a dick? I think not.

    I think the general consensus is that gay people are too sensitive.

    My take is that it is not anyone else's business at to what words I use. The NBA is a private organization and business and they felt the need to fine him; ok, that's their business. But in general people saying "you can't say X or Y" only pisses me off and makes me use them more.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I don't pay attention to people who tell me what to say either. I definitely say things like "retard" that piss other people off. At the same time, I think it's just as stupid for people to bitch about others criticizing them for their words. Why does it piss anyone off that someone tells them that they can't say X or Y? Who cares?

    Just accept that some words piss people off and get on with it. If I say retard, I know that certain people aren't going to associate with me and if I'm a public figure, I'll accept the consequences of saying it in public. If I see someone who uses faggot and nigger, I'm not going to associate with them. It's life - people associate words with certain negative states of mind. It's childish to walk around trying to piss them off.
