Quote: I did that for a reason. By replacing the words I put it as what Bios-D meant to say.
But BIOS-D didn't say that. Therefore it's arrogant for you to deliberately misquote through such fanciful revisions.
If *YOU* don't like a certain word then you don't personally use it. Then again, if someone else uses that word it's poor form to change what they wrote through "thinking" what they "meant" to say and pretending you're quoting them rather than actually straight-quoting what they actually said.
That is a form of dishonesty.
And it's gay.
And the person who does such a thing is gay.
Quote: Which raises the question. Why is it that some people will defend something, then in the next instance be ready to use it as in insult? I fail to see the logic in this.
Well, you have to understand a bit of word entomology and how that lingua franca works within the modern world.
"Gay" is also a synonym for "queer". From that Good Book:
The kids pick up on that real quick. So you have kids calling peculiar things "gay". It's not that the kids are homophobic. It's just how it works out.
Then you have homosexuals and bisexuals (I count myself as the latter) who have this thang known as "gaydar". I've already wrote about how the more homophobic a person is and the more hostile they are in regards to defending their own heterosexuality the more closeted they are. People trust their intuition on that since it's correct most of the time. People like me have seen the best and worst of peoples' character. So that becomes a foundation of intuitive knowledge that fuels that.
So, if you're offended that I call this "gay" or that "gay" then it's not me with the problem. It's you. With all the atrocities within this world, in particular bullying where it it veers into outright personal slander and hate, getting offended by my use of the word "gay" should be very low at the list of yer priorities.
Anyone who pushes for Political Correctness rather than mutual respect while ignoring current culture and context really needs a new hobby. Anything less is gay.
