Theres been a few posts on this board with people using the word "gay" or "faggot". Some say its "just a term" used with out any prejudices, while others get offended no matter what. My opinion is that using those are a "loaded gun". Meaning, they already have derogatory meaning around them when people use them in that fashion. Like saying..."that's ugly", some might say ..."that's gay". Does gay=ugly, bad, cheap,...etc.? What do you think about using those terms? We should learn and discuss everybodies opinion about this, no flames.
