I know gay people who use the word faggot and call things gay..
you cant just stop it, and saying faggot will still be in my vocabulary because they are being a faggot, not being mean to gay people, thats been in my vocab before i knew it existed,dont like it, its just words, cover your ears
there are tons of words in your vocabulary you never use. It isn't required for you to use them. I don't care about about swearing, but using words like "gay" and "faggot" to be rude just shows you're disrespectful and can't be bothered to use other words in their place instead of insult someone you never meant to.
"Just cover your ears." Instead of having others accommodate to your insults, how about you just stop insulting. Faggot is the most hurtful things you can call us.
I'm not calling people who are gay, faggots, I just call people who are being all faggoty a faggot, I try not to but it slips out, I knew the word "faggot" way before I knew what it meant
"being all faggoty" judging by your word choice there you don't have a very broad vocabulary. Try it sometime. When people say "that is so gay" or something similar it's implying being gay is shameful and should be avoided; being gay is a sexual orientation and using it negatively doesn't say we should respect that group of people and they are equal to us.
Ive been reading at a 12th grade reading level since 5th grade, but that will always be in my vocabulary, I knew that word before i knew what it meant, sorry, it may slip out occasionally :P I cant just clean my brain, i said it for so long till i knew what it meant, haha
