    Alright Il lead the way

    I used to use words like fagat or **** or whatever...just when I got angry..thinking they were just swear words like feck or whatnot

    But I realise now it has an effect on the LGBT community and how we see that community if even subtle.

    It makes it acceptable..and then its not as a big deal to make jokes about gays in general blatantly.

    The guy who says nothing can be done about..I disagree...itl take time..but we used to make racist remarks a lot more and its simply not acceptable now

    Using gay is classic..but the video is a nice reminder to stop saying that

    Overall though I dont see it as a massive issue although I guess itl take celebrities to do what he did for anything to happen about it.

    Done. .

    I saw that video, a waste of a few minutes of my life. Americans are so melodramatic. He said ******. Big deal, move on.

    You should include the link for the video for those who haven't seen it. I've seen it and I agree I sometimes use words like that (but not in a homophobic way) but that video reminded me of the impact that some of our words can have on certain people.

    Basically you click on the 'insert video' icon then just enter the link, it's the icon that looks like a video reel.
