THESE ARE ALL OFFENSIVE WORDS.
they do not need to be accompanied by other words/phrases/quotes/thoughts/opinions, but sometimes are.
they, like stereotypes, are used quite frequently and upset many people.
SO why is it when someone posts a thoughtword - which is one of the aforementioned offensive words - is it immediately overlooked to attack an upfront opinion about sexual orientation?
AND why is that deemed okay by the ether community?
ETHER, i'm assuming is built upon opinions and words and thoughts and ideas.
I'd hope people would attack the people who attack certain individuals (those people who use the above words) before they start attacking someone who is merely providing his or her thoughts - in this case as a comment on another member's thought.
I'm extremely saddened to find out just how wrong I am.
However, I hope this general attitude changes to one that is more accepting - something that I feel ether set out for in the beginning.
Here's to the future!
please note: the above words are words that i personally find offensive, and are not meant to cause offense to anyone who reads them. they are merely presented as a mean of proving a point.
