I don't use them, they seem a little ignorant and immature.
but, then again, not much offends me.
When someone says "faggot", it offends me mildly.
No im not
They remind me of me
No. I'm not offended by almost anything
They are smilies.. how could they offend you?
...few things on OT actually bother me.
Well yeah, but they're things that you SHOULD be bothered...
Maybe. OffTopic is interesting because it creates an environment where people can step outside of themselves in terms of personal opinions, socio-cultural mores, and general responsibilities. Yes, we have sets of regulations that we loosely abide by, but for the most part we are free to post/say/eDo anything.
That said, although I like to believe that half the ignorance posted on OT about the queer community is exaggerated, or posted just to elicit a responce, sadly I do realize that there is a percentage of the real world that do harbor such negative feelings. But I think that for the most part people are becoming more accepting of the queer community.
To state it in plain language, the general message has been received loud, flamboyant, and clear… We’re here! We’re no-longer that queer! They’re used to us! And If Off Topic is any barometer of success, then we’ve hit a new plateau. Queers are at last just as plain as everyday folks. Why, whatever will Showtime do?
Yes they talk behind my back about me.
I got banned from another forum for posting those
The admin said it might offend the gay person who sometimes reads the forum (but does not post) I was there for 3 years as well
I think you should lighten up.
seriously, you need to have a sense of humor about yourself.
who gives a fuck even if it does
