Re: The reaction to "slurs"
I understand your opinion. And my point remains that using those words isn't right, and it is immature, but it happens sometimes as a result of the sports culture you grew up in and the words that were thrown around. I never claim to be perfect; just being honest. Have you never used a slur in your life? And when you used it, did it mean you hated that group of people?
You don't have to trust me; you don't know me. But I believe that no one should be persecuted because of their sexual preference or the color of their skin. I believe if a person is straight, bi, gay, or asexual, they were born that way.
And I know words can hurt; I've had plenty of slurs come my way, too. Sadly, that's human, and that's life. Doesn't make it right. And although it can denote hatred, as you said, it doesn't always.
