"I got several gay friends who call me a faggot whenever I act like a pussy and the don't give a fuck when someone uses faggot or gay in a negative way because they know it has nothing to do with their sexuality.



And literally everyone uses nigga, how about we stop being hypocritical as fuck and stop acting like it still has some kind of impact."



It must be wonderful to live in a bubble.

If you keep getting offended by a word that's lost all meaning due to changes in culture and acceptance of homosexuality sure, I won't use the word, but you're probably still a faggot.

But some people don't like certain noises therefore noone at all should make that noise

Words have not lost their meaning, context is relevant but someone using slurs against someone else still has an effect on people.

These things may not bother you but you can't tell everyone to react to something the same way you do.

What annoys me is the people freaking out about words generally seem to be doing absolutely nothing else to improve society. It's like an over-compensation for their guilt of being self-absorbed, they make a lazy effort to insult people and act self righteous for having the trivial willpower to refrain from using a certain word.



In the meantime a club full of gay people gets slaughtered and the best solution these people have is "get rid of that certain type of gun he had (so he can easily go but a different one)"' and vote for Hillary the candidate getting tens of millions of dollars from countries hat execute gays.



The whole slur outrage just seems like people fronting, it's counterproductive. Most leftists care more about appearing to be righteous than actually being righteous and improving the world.

I don't think people should be needlessly offended but it's pretty easy to say something else besides faggot, which, despite context, definitely has a certain past connotation that's hard to shake. Personally, I just avoid it because I don't see a need for it. Plenty of other words out there.

the whole thing is a politicized mess. Every time someone says faggot a democratic politician has a orgasm, they love playing politics with identities. Obama and hillary were anti gay marriage about 3-4 years ago, their shameless flip flop when the movement became politically popular should tell all people they need to know.



Instead... Gays are routinely murdered by radical Muslims worldwide, republicans favor killing these Muslims but remarkably lgbt still sides with the democrats and actually had the nerve to blame republicans "hate" for the Orlando attack. (You know, not real hate, but taking Donald trumps speeches out of context.



Absolutely bizarre watching "pro-gays" ignore violent hate and invent/exxagerate hate based on the use of slurs or microagressions. It's all a political game that benefits the democratic party. People think they can stay out of politics, they can't, everything is political.

I don't automatically think someone's a huge bigot for saying it. I think maybe it lacks taste, depending on the context, but like I said, I just prefer not to use it myself. To each their own and all that.

I understand where it can be offensive. Doesn't mean I want to or think it's right to mentally coddle everyone, but I don't see a point in using it often.

Fame seems to have made him substantially less funny. He was a lot more funny when he was a loser making fun of himself, doesn't work anymore now that he's filthy rich.

'Ever notice when you talk I just cut myself?

On some ultimate fuck you/ go fuck yourself

Like that was so heartfelt/ you really touched yourself

I loved the part where you cried/ I liked nothing else'

He still does, but his solo albums definitely saw him flexing his creative muscles more

He'll probably never do anything as good as "The Overly Dramatic Truth" again though
