I couldn't agree more. Sadly this is what it has become but I hate it. None of it matters to me and I hate how it matters to society in general.

At risk of being chastised for bringing up a Packer in a non-Packer thread, I wish the world had more people like Aaron Rodgers. He has publicly stated that he will answer ANY football related questions in interviews whether it's about a game, his play, officiating, teammates, other players or anything else, but he refuses to answer anything personal such as whether or not he was recently engaged. I know the public craves this information, but I like to dream.
.


I never knew he said this, but major props to him. I always felt more should do this. I wouldn't even respond to anything non football related if I were in there shoes, and wish most athletes felt the same. I don't care about it at all, that's not why I am a fan of these players, and I really don't think it's important to begin with.

I couldn't care less about Kwame Harris' sexuality. My only interest in this arena is my belief that the words "hatred" and "phobia" are overused and in many cases misunderstood by the people who use them. I will say that for a select sub-group, should "hatred" and "phobia" be the rationale for any judgement they may have made, that they need to carefully re-examine their relationship with said source.

My response may most definitely come across as cryptic, but only because I hope to stay within the parameters of the forum rules and most certainly not purposefully offend anyone.

further, you shouldn't have any issue discussing marvin gaye, so long as you remember how to spell his name.

I haven't heard '***' used as an insult since I was about 12. I think we're underestimating the maturity levels of people here.

Also, the n-word and '***' are completely different.

I would be somewhat curious to hear your explanation for this.
My assumption is you feel the n-word is far more harsh.

I'd but g-ay more on par with blacks than the n-word. The F-one would be more the homophobic slur on par with the n-word...and sorry mods, I really tried to PC that as best I could...

Again, I question the use of the term "phobia". People who possess a irrational fear may choose the word "deviant". People who hold a poor or unjustified hatred would be more inclined to use the f-word.

While technically true, it's the common word used to describe that line of thinking. There's a lot of words that we use to describe something that aren't technically the best way to describe the idea.

It's exactly what rosebud said:

SP is black.
SP is a *****.

I'd be perfectly fine with the first and not so pleased with the second.

SP is ***.
SP is a ******.

I'd be perfectly fine with first and not so pleased with the second.

I wasn't talking about the word being banned, just about why I feel one is worse than the other...

CJ was wondering, so I replied.

In my experience, *** is more likely to be used in this form:

"SP can't even use a microwave. That's pretty ***. Also, the Packers are ***. Man, SP is so ***."

It's censored on this board, I think, because some immature people can be obnoxious idiots. Not because it's a "homophobic" slur.

Well yeah, I know how it can be used, I was probably one of those people using it that way when I was about 10 years old. I just thought maybe people here are capable of acting a bit older than that. If not that's cool, it was just my opinion.

Describe me as I am, do not label me what you feel the masses in your favor will accept and understand.

You're drawing too direct a line between the name and the description. Sure there's people who see everyone who didn't change their profile pic to the red equal sign as Phelps farm supporting nutbags, but there will always be ignorant people, why worry about them? Work with the people you can who actually are open minded and we won't assume you're phelps-loving *** basher.
