Is the victum here actually gay? I ask becasue I think it odd that calling someone "gay slurs" is considered offensive even if the target is not gay. Would any get all worked up if someone say used Asian slurs against a non-Asian person?
Not likely. You'd just think the person was nuts.

You really find it odd that yelling "FAG!" at someone is offensive even if the recipient is not gay?

Or... if he is gay?

Wait, what are you even saying? Is this a real question?? :shock:

Yes, it is odd to take offense at a wrod that does not apply to you. It's not the word which is offensive but the intent. If the victim is gay and being attacked for that reason it is one thing- a serious issue. If he's not gay that what difference does it make what word(s) are used to make him feel bad?

Really? You are obviously a troll, go stir your pot somewhere else.

completely agree with you OB on the troll catch; either way no young child likes to be called a derogatory name of any kind!

It's both comical and sad that you all are still talking about "titty twister-gate" four months after this non-story broke.

if it wasn't a story the kids never would have been suspended and the argus would not have reported it. both look for facts before they suspend and report.

I can't help but wonder; if it were your child would it be a non-story..........really?

Nothing about this is comical; everything about it is sad for all involved.

What I do find amusing is you apparently felt the need to point out others are still talking about it; yet you posted again to the thread? Oh, btw your "gate" reference speaks volumes; and that's sad. :roll:
