Grammar Blogger Fired Over 'Homo' in 'Homophones'

There are 39 comments on the The Gater 98.7 FM story from Aug 1, 2014, titled Grammar Blogger Fired Over 'Homo' in 'Homophones'. In it, The Gater 98.7 FM reports that:

You've heard of homophobia. Now comes homophonia. The Salt Lake Tribune has the strange story of a social-media specialist who got fired after writing a blog post about homophones-the grammatical term referring to words that sound the same but are spelled differently, like too and two.

Again,what I said is not a matter of opinion. The _facts_ are that homophobes are now outliers. You were trying to dispute that notion here. Support for lgbt equal rights in Western democracies is at super majority percentages. Support for the more contentious marriage equality is a bit over majority percentages in the US, higher in other democracies. We know the numbers of people who think what about lgbt rights.

Those are facts.

The thread was going along in a joking way until some rube began weeping because he has been stopped by his parole officer - or some imaginary force - from using the words "gay" and "rainbow" as he wishes to.

The poor dear. He should move to Uganda or some other homophobes' paradise on earth.

I replied to his idiocy; homophobes don't like being called out on their nonsense. Too bad.

Also, you didn't acknowledge your complete inability to understand what an "if" statement is. If lgbt people and str8 allies tried for laws barring fundies and tee baggrz from marriage, adoption, military service, employment protections _then_ there would be some ambiguity as to who the bigots are. There is not such ambiguity.

Now, if ignorant mouthbreathers can't learn which way is up, what a bigot is, what homophobia is, what climate change is, what carbon dating is...then perhaps we will have to start limiting their rights to marry and adopt, etc. I mean, what else is to be done with such anti rational morons?

It is your ration.....be rational, shake your head and walk away.

But nooooooooooo

You'd rather jump to conclusions, then feel the need to name call and attempt to belittle people. Just as you did with me. And you call that rational?

Oh yeah, I forgot, your educated.

No, you're a liar who doesn't make sense.

Now if I did "jump to conclusions" then you explain clearly exactly what you were trying to say about the number of people who believe what about lgbt rights. But just remember the whole thread is here. And remember I have access to the polling data on that matter.

You didn't acknowledge that it was some rube crying how he can't use the "gay" anymore without upsetting his unsatisfied wife who put this thread into a poltical vein. That's because you're dishonest.

You also didn't come clean on this issue of taking equal marriage and adoption rights away from fundies and tee baggrz. We have not done that. Homophobes have done that. Yet it is you who whines like a stuck pig as though we had.

Why shouldn't psychosexually distraught, outlier bigots be called out? Invective is perfectly appropriate for the kkk, for anti Semites, for racists, for homophobes. Too bad if it upsets you. Bigots should smarten up and stop dissembling all the time.

Perhaps re-reading the thread might give you a better understanding as to what I was referring to, but I really doubt it, since I have already pointed it out to you, twice.
Your refusal to believe what I say does not make me a liar.....it makes you obtuse.
You wouldn't know sense if it bitch slapped you.....and I am certain it has.....on several occasions.
That's an understatement...I applaud your reserve !

Interesting how you state things I have not said just to create an argument.
The matter of opinion statement was in reference to what bigots think.
Way over your head, obviously.
I have never claimed to be a victim......I couldn't care less if gays want to marry.
I don't agree with it, but it will have no effect on my life. In my disagreement I do not advocate shunning them from society, I don't advocate firing them, nor stopping them from enjoying any rights I have. You have also never seen me post anything attacking gays. But the gays are full of hatred spewing BS attacking me at every turn.....Hypocrite
This thread started out poking fun at the idiots who thought using a word that starts with HOMO would associate them with gays.....So I too poked fun, it is the actual homosexuals that are trying to turn it into something it isn't with your "faux victim-hood" outrage over nothing.
I am mocked by the intolerant, name calling bigots you mean! Educated people do not stoop to name calling tactics.
"OMG, he used a word that starts with HOMO!!!"
Let the outrage spew forth.
Me thinks you are too ignorant to see what this thread is about and have gotten carried away over nothing.
You should take your outrage back to the glbt threads where you will find the true bigots hating on you.
UMMMM,,WTF did he say,,??

No liar, we know how many people think what about lgbt rights. I quoted the stats.

You didn't address those other point I made, because when tee baggrz and fundies get trapped all they do is start harping on some hysterical, denying point as a diversion.

Paying top dollar for a "Proper" American/English lesson WITHOUT including an urban dictionary is not getting your moneys worth anyway.
The administrator getting FAGGED out clearly shows he is the true
Homo Erectus & the teacher the HOMO SAPIEN by definition he showed
why he may have his pink panties in a bunch.
"Homo erectus - extinct species of primitive hominid with upright stature but small brain; "Homo erectus was formerly called Pithecanthropus erectus"
"Homo sapiens - the only surviving hominid; species to which modern man belongs; bipedal primate having language and ability to make and use complex tools; brain volume at least 1400 cc"

Pretty funny also considering some of the people who would be taking these classes can already speak,MUCH more complex languages :) Rick

Pay close attention, moron.....

I so eloquently stated:
"Fewer that think themselves bigots are willing to admit and be proud of the fact."

You blathered:
"You're confused about how many think what."

My intelligent reply was:
"That, is a matter of opinion."

You ineptly attempted to move the goal posts with:
"No, the data on support for equal lgbt rights and even the most contentious issue of marriage equality in all the Western democracies is not a matter of opinion."

I brilliantly pointed out to you your error:
"The matter of opinion statement was in reference to what bigots think.
Way over your head, obviously."

You then continued to howl and bawl a bunch of other incoherent nonsense.

I have no intention of addressing any of your other points just to feed your hatred.

I have no objection to what people do in their private life but the idea of calling a homosexual union a marriage sets a very dangerous precedent . Words mean things and without the constant meaning of a word then laws mean nothing. When any small group can change the very meaning of marriage then any other group has the same right to call anything they want a marriage. Polygamy is illegal but it has a much stronger case in history to be a marriage, Is group sex a marriage? Can sisters marry to get insurance benefits? Where does this end? Gays have always had a right to marry someone of the opposite sex and have done so for many years thought out history

Of course you and the entire right wing object to that. You fought for decades to keep anti sodomy laws on the books.(Of course now you've lost that battle, so you like to pretend you never fought it.)

You start with a bald faced lie and then progress to cementing your reputation as the stupidest person on the internetz.

Bigots by who's standards?
You choose to be gay and are proud to admit it.
Fewer that think themselves bigots are willing to admit and be proud of the fact.
1. Here's your _whole_ quote again. You are implying that there are many more bigots but that they are just on the down low as bigots.

What you say is not true. The polling shows that - even if a percentage of people lie - it is homophobes who are the extreme outliers now.(Except in stunted, backwater, buybull enclaves like talibangelical universities [sic] and whatnot.)

Again: There might be some homophobes who don't admit it intentionally (we can tell,) but in mentioning these sad individuals you were attempting to counteract my statement of fact that homophobes are outliers.

And now you're lying about what you were trying to argue.

2. Also, you lied in attributing the political turn of the thread to me. That was the cretin who started bawling that he cannot for some reason use the words "gay" or "rainbow" anymore. I'm not sure why, perhaps he has a speech impediment.

3. You then distorted reality by claiming I have in some way tried to take equal rights away from fundies in marriage, adoption, military service, etc., as a way of arguing that I am the bigot. But I was illustrating a point about the people who have tried to take those equal rights away being the bigots. LGBT people are not the bigots, despite you tee baggrz and fundies faux cries of victimhood to the contrary.

I said _if_ lgbt people and str8 allies barred homophobic idiots from marrying, adopting, etc.,_then_ you'd have a point about lgbt people being the bigots in the equation.

You don't have a point. All you can do is lie, be mistaken, and then twist things when called out. Disgusting.

Which is of course a matter of opinion on my part.
Your obtuse interpretation is for the sake of some inane argument.
Now your butt hurt because I won't debate your accusations and points I never touched on.

Sweet Cheeks, I am not trying to argue anything, it is you who keeps interjecting all sorts of issues. I have only attempted to set you straight on my comment, you choose to twist it and try to tell me what I really mean. Then YOU argue your own twisted version. Your melt down is, however, humorous.
<quoted text>
Oh come on, Meadow Muffin, you know there is not one lie in anything I have stated.
:^`P
Tee baggrz are disgusting liars.

You again failed to put the entire quote of yours. You were assuredly attempting to counteract my statement of fact that homophobes are now outliers by suggesting that many opposed to lgbt equality remain more silent than do all the lgbt people and str8 allies.

But even if you would own up to trying to suggest that, it is not true.

You made other false claims, simply out of anti rational bigotry, you can't address them, and so you switch to simple name calling and evasion without content.

You did falsely whine that I made this thread political. I did not. Some other mouthbreather did, and then I replied to the poor unfortunate.

You tried to suggest that those supporting equal rights are the _real_ bigots, and I pointed out to you that would be true if lgbt rights advocates tried to bar fundies from marriage, adoption, etc. Then you tried to argue that, based on some imaginative extrapolation, that I have tried to so limit the equal rights of christardates in marriage, adoption, military service. You lied in so doing.

Ultimately, this is all anti rational bigots can do: Deny what they said, lie and evade. Of course, they can also die out from the population...which they are in the process of doing in the West.

So you admit that's what you were trying to say, despite your ensuing lies.

It already has happened substantially, Cletus. Paticularly in educated, blue enclaves, corporate America, higher education, and the entertainment industry.

And homophobes don't have to die out 100%. Becoming a tiny, cowed minority will suffice.

Oh, and I was correct on all those other points I ran through several times and which you could never address. You remember that the next time you think about spewing your anti rational nonsense.

I remembered, then I forgot.

While insuring HOMOgeneity I will hope your gorilla HOMOgraft isn't rejected. Knowing that you are only partially HOMOiousians it has to be a problem for you. I am certain you will HOMOlogate that your HOMOlogy roots can be traced to the hyena. That is probably why you have problems with your HOMOsocial behaviors. Having the problem of HOMOspory, and unless you become HOMOgamous you may die out before bigots. Your anti HOMOousian ways will no doubt send you to a fiery pit.

Christardates conveniently just change the subject when they're lies get confronted.

The talibangelical morons should know it is not any human according to the tenets of their own religion - which they don't really follow - who determines who goes to hell. Stating otherwise is heresy, arrogance, ignorance.

By the way, you were wrong about all those "silent" homophobes. Homophobes are a shrinking minority now. You were wrong about all those other things I reminded you of repeatedly, too, Cletus.
