If you were offended then never EVER go to the southern half of the U.S.

Oh so it's ok then? As long as I don't go to the south? Ridiculous.

I lucky live in New Zealand, where homophobia is frowned upon.

 

Why are people so soft now-a-days? Can't anyone be insulted anymore? People make fun of me for my hobbies, what clothes I wear, the way I talk, honestly. You know who you are, ignore the hate and just keep pushing forward bud  ;)

Soft? Are you kidding? You're a disgrace.

If you're offended by something someone says, you should re-evaluate yourself more than evaluating someone.

 

You're actually letting someone "offend" you. Unless it's someone who you have to impress to get ahead (like an interview for a job or school you want to go to, not McDonald's), then you shouldn't give a shit what people say.

 

Real talk here.

Homophobic = being creeped by / scared of homosexuality (it's also use nowadays to mean dislikes homosexuals)

 

Linus joking around being "homo" with his peers.... is the exact opposite of homophobic.

How am I a disgrace? People seem to agree with me. I never complain, I've been insulted about my race also, these are just words bro. I'm not willing to start a fight at 2:30 in the morning, but why must EVERYONE care what other people think? It's your life, ignore people who don't matter. If I'm one of those people, don't quote my posts. I'm fine with gays (homosexuals?) idk which you prefer to be called actually(sorry for my lack of knowledge :( ) but why do you care what other people think?

"Full homo" is a colloquial term used to imply that a relationship is sexual rather than platonic.

 

The "homo" part means that the relationship is between two members of the same sex, so while adaptations could exist that are appropriate for use with a member of the opposite sex, I didn't need to use them because Slick is male, and I am male.

 

It's about like any other joking around that friends (of same sex, opposite sex or anywhere else on the spectrum) might do. I've said similar crap to girls too, and no one cares about that. As long as everyone involved is comfortable with kidding around in such a manner, then it's all between consenting adults, and everyone else can just move right along.

 

If anyone was offended, then two things:

 

1. I'm sorry your feelings were hurt.

 

2. Lighten up.

 

Here's the problem.

When you mark one's sexuality, which is a huge part of a person, as the butt of a joke you're being offensive.

So per my conversation with @Gaymer91 on Twitter, evdiently the problem is the use of the word "homo" and not my implied relationship with my co-workers and/or friends.

 

If that's that case, then I guess we don't have a problem because I'm not married to the word "homo" and I have no problem substituting in something less offensive as long as I don't have to abandon one of my favourite things to do, which is creating uncomfortable sexual tension for the people around me :)

 

So there you have it, guys. The community has spoken, and the word "homo" will no longer be used to refer to sexual orientation. I'm glad we got this out of the way.

It's not about defending Linus.

 

It's about learning to not care what people think. 

 

If it's not okay with you, why did someone else besides you start the thread?

I'm always amused when people get all upset over gay slurs.  I'm from the rural south (United States) yet  laugh as good as the next person at a red neck. If I got so out ragged every time someone made a uncle brother joke i'd have no time for anything else.

 

 

Anymore it just seems like everyone is out to be out raged over something, wish everyone would get over it already.

and all I'm trying to do is suggest that people in this age care way to much about words. Lets take a step back and think, they're words, they can't hurt you. I do understand your point, and I am a little desensitized. So I truly am sorry if this thread upsets you :(

But uncomfortable sexual tension is the best! :P

 

I still think people are being a bit too sensitive to this topic. I've been following your nerdy shenanigans for awhile and it's silly how anyone could mistaken someone so down to Earth as being uber anti-homosexicals. As I've said in an earlier post, my gay friends joke all the time and I joke flirt back, but I'm happily in love with my girlfriend. People, the point of life is to laugh and enjoy it, not label people. ;)
