choosing the best is a bit unfair, thats like saying all pokemon are awesome because you have a level 100 Shiney Gyarados.... because a level 6 zubat douchbag is a cunt no matter how shiney

So what ... is a shiny Gyarados a hard thing to get? I am pretty sure they gave those things away in gen 2.

The pictures were chosen not to show that all gays are awesome, but rather to show that there are awesome people among gays and therefore it can't insult me when someone calls me gay... because there's nothing wrong about being gay.

It should be like this. So it wouldn't be suppossed to insult all the gay people

So if I called a black guy a ****** , then said to him, "Wait! Here's a bunch of famous black guys who were awesome!" he shouldn't be insulted anymore?

An insult is an insult based on context, not definition.
#25 to #21 - jozofero (01/19/2013) [-]
It's not the same. ****** is considered an offensive word, and black people call themselves "black people" or "African Americans" or whatever, they don't use the word " ****** ". On the other hand, the word gay is not negative.
User avatar #26 to #25 - guitarguise (01/19/2013) [-]
black people call each other ******* ...

But if you would like another example, "bitch". Bitch means female dog. Inherently, nothing is negative about a female dog. Actually, I love dogs, so it could be a compliment!

but it's not when someone calls me a bitch. Again, context over definition. If I had a gay friend, I could say, "Oh yeah, he's gay" with no ill intention at all. Because the context is pleasant/neutral. But if a guy, who is straight, grabs my nuts and starts fondling them, I'll say "Goddammit Frank! that's gay! What the **** ?!"

The insult "gay" is used only in the context of when a straight male is doing homosexual activities. Everyone knows that if you call a homosexual "gay" it doesn't mean a thing and isn't insulting. Even if you try to making it insulting, you'd say "Man, you are gayyyyy", and he'd just stand there saying, "uh. yeah. I am."

"gay" as an insult isn't actually targeted towards homosexuals. It's targeted to straight men.

Yeah, I see what you mean. The "bitch" example was a good one. My point is that subconciously I perceive the word "gay" as a neutral one. So if someone is trying to insult me by saying I'm gay, for me it's the same as if he/she was trying to insult me by saying I'm Asian, for example. From the context, I understand that it was meant to be offensive, but as I subconciously perceive the word (gay, Asian, whatever) as neutral, the final sentence sounds funny to me and instead of being offended, I just laugh.

except how people use the word gay nowadays. Anything against your opinion is gay. Oh you like pepsi not coke, get yo gas ass outta here. You like the bruins and not the red wings, gayYY!

Being gay is thought to be bad. Thus is it an insult and it isn't just used when a straight male does homosexual activites.

A lot of black people I know would rather be called ******* than African American's.

Rob Halford so many good memories associated with that name. The day I saw the original Judas Priest lineup live was one of the best of my life.

Rock on brother!

Alan Turing, he worked on the Enigma code at Bletchley Park during WWII. He was chemicaly castrated for being gay.
User avatar #13 to #10 - chrolt (01/19/2013) [-]
He was chemically castrated? Did they remove his balls with acid?

I know what you mean it just sounded funny to me
#16 to #13 - anon (01/19/2013) [-]
he was given a high enough amount of hormones to render his testicles useless - or whatever they use for that...
