To watch the live feed is fascinating.

I'm convinced there is no hope for the world if the sad, pathetic, vain, shallow and downright nasty young bags of people(?) on Twitter are going to be running the world someday.

Jorge, please time to grow up and be a real man. If someone calls me a faggot (which has not happened in years) I say, "thanks, yes I am and proud of it". Takes the power away from the accuser, frustrates them and they don't know what to say next. Let's take the word back and use it for our own good, wear it, don't fear it, don't react to it and the word will slowly not be used as much.

It would be interesting to see if those derogatory terms are used in the same frequency wouldn't it?

When I was a kid, black Americans were called "colored people". Is that phrase considered a slur nowadays ?

We already know your a racist, and blame all the worlds problems on blacks and Jews, but in actuality the worlds problems are rooted in bigoted, self-loathing people like you.

The overuse by straights of the word "fa&&ot" is nothing in comparison to the overuse by fa&&ots of the word "bigot".

Really?

Like a paramecium. You don't have the capacity to understand anything except yourself. Gays have been persecuted for thousands of years. It has only been in recent years that gays have been able to speak up at all without fear of being beaten or killed.
