Why can't you just respect our wishes as people, or the wishes of black people for that matter? This comes down to respect and ultimately reveals that you have none for either of our communities. Defining a person with reference to a single dimension of their character is absolutely bizarre... If you want to persist then do, but don't be surprised at the dirty looks you get for being a ****.
Because they do not make any logical sense and I refuse to support any oppression of the freedom of expression. Demanding to be called “gay people” instead of “gays” because they are “people first” is one of the biggest brainwashed ridiculous stupidities I have ever heard. Is a doctor or a lawyer not a person first? Or a ginger, or a Belgian? Is the Queen not a person first? She should be called the ruling person, then!
Some black people who were not cataclysmically ignorant even stood up for me and I see no reason to change my vocabulary because a subset of a certain group have chosen to be hypersensitive. Their attempts at demonstrating the political power they posses due to this society being overly liberal are simply opportunistic and not to be tolerated.
I respect people who are sensible and deserve the respect, not those who encourage positive discrimination and things like newspeak.
Defining a person?
I am simply noting their characteristic which is crucial to the context, not defining a person. That would be if you asked me to describe someone whom I have met and my response was: “He is a gay.” Additionally, telling you that “he is gay” conveys literally the same information so there is absolutely no difference in using the word as a noun versus an adjective.
The most infuriating fact is that LGBT activists choose to ***** about unimportant silly details such as this and to society falls to its knees before them while actually important problems are overlooked and swept under the carpet. Knowing there are homeless people in our Wester civilisation who live in worse conditions than sewer rats, yet some choose to invest their energy to force others to speak as they wish is abhorrent and makes me disgruntled.
Finally, I am sincere and direct but only when the things I say are constructive. There is no point in noting that a person has a bad hairstyle when he is not interested in my opinion, but when I am asked, I tell the truth. People get offended for banalities these days and sometimes I think they should be reminded what real problems like war are. The so called “men” of today would probably attack each other with iPhones while mounting fixies…
I remember watching an interview with the cast of Django Unchained in which Samuel L. Jackson was explicitly encouraging the interviewer to use the word ****** in order to be able to speak freely about the historical context and the coward caricature of an interviewer refused to, giggling like an idiot. Do we really want to encourage such fear of words
The stupid TSR censors even that so the word in question is similar to the African country and river Niger.
