I think using the word fag in a hateful manner is just as bad as using the N word, but apparently no mods agree.

It just pisses me off that someone can go into a thread (click the first post to venture back) that I made about a movie and give their unwanted opinion that it's a movie for 'fags' and they hate them. I guess it's OT, but it bugs me how the mods constantly contradict themselves.

Anyone with me or am I just being too picky?

I call ppl fags all the time....if someone SERIOUSLY has a problem with gays thats one thing but ive found most guys on OT are actually accepting even though they might use the word...its just a word afterall and it really doesnt bother me


I actually agree, but they use to take this approach with the N word, if it was in jest or humor= no ban, hatred= ban. Now they have made it zero tolerance, which I don't agree with, but I wish it would be consistent across the board.

I often call my BF a faggot as a joke, but I don't mean it in a hateful manner and do it mostly in private.

I guess I should care more than I do, I only take offense if they're actually talking about me or another gay person. But even then if I know there's no malice behind it I don't mind.

I only get mad if they are seriously calling me a fag. If people are joking though, I take "offense" and it peeves me a little but I don't really care THAT much. Gay/fag has become such a common word in our language it doesn't even mean "homosexual" most of the time anymore...even though technically it does. :o

I was under the impression that the main forum was unmoderated? Last time I ventured out the main forum I was told to fuck off and I was called a stupid cunt face bitch. Fag doesn't seem so bad now does it? haha.

lol

I'm assuming you're OP and don't venture there often. They have some sort of hazing thing. I'm not called a bitch or cunt very often *anymore*

yes, and it's zero tolerance (for the most part). It's not even allowed in a manner of jest.
I had to google jest.

jest: joke: a humorous anecdote or remark intended to provoke laughter; "he told a very funny joke"; "he knows a million gags"; "thanks for the laugh ...

Do you like being abused by angry 16 year old virgins? :mamoru:

thats what gets me

the people that spew the most hate do nothing but refresh the main page all day

go out and get some friends

and to the TS
whenever I get mad at this forum (and I do) I just close the browser and go do something else

just keep in mind these people that spew this crap are worthless

people that hate gay people for no reason have other issues, I can guarantee that

its not just gay people they hate, I'm sure there is a list of people and groups etc.

their issues are far deeper than just gays

The are loud and angry on the internet because they shy and lack personality in real life.

:hsugh:

Thats really not true


Most of the guys on OT are actually normal people who just act the way they do to see how other people respond. I know Im way more obnoxious on OT then I am in real life but im not really shy either*


*talking to hot guys doesn't count

Obviously you don't know which kind of guys I'm talking about. I never referred to 'most guys'. I'm not talking about people who are just simply obnoxious online, hell I can be obnoxious online. However you and I add some value to the forums, we join discussions!! I'm talking about the the kind of OTers that call people a bitch cunt face for no reason and jump in with stupid one liners, these people add no value to the forums at all. There is a massive difference.
