I struggle with this. A whole raft of laws argue that people should not be discriminated by their sexual orientation - how come, then, people can be prosecuted for calling someone gay!

Would someone get into trouble for calling a gay straight in Heaven?

Isn't identifying someone as gay discriminating by their sexual orientation?

every adjective or noun is discriminatory by definition, no?

Maybe they're just describing them as happy?

Actually, maybe not. They got what they deserved basically.

That's almost a 3 minute crosspost. You must be an even slower typer than I ever dreamed of. :p

People should be allowed to acknowledge discrimination. This is a color blind world, ignore everything!

Well, would they have been prosecuted if they sang "Sol plays like a woman"?

No because that would be true. :)

"Come on gay boy, that's my gay boy."

"Come on, that's my gay."

And the reply was:

"We find that the words used were in extremely bad taste, they were inappropriate, shocking and disgusting, and as such they were indecent."

Oh come on, they're more to be pitied. They're some of the lamest insults I've heard in quite some time! :lol:

"I felt totally victimised and helpless by the abuse I received on this day. It has had an effect on me personally and I do not want it to continue. I support the police in their action."

There, there. I'm sure the 100k a week or whatever he gets paid may act as some consolation...

It's still racist for him to say that to you, the problem there is the enforcement is different which is probably not really fair but as a straight white male getting any kind of racist, sexist, sexualityist abuse will be so rare that you don't really need anyone to stick up for you. In fact you remember the one time it happened. :eek:

On reflection - As the great HARDMAN would say "homofobia iz gay"

Which puts him ahead of the crowd and that is a bit scary

Is it racist to say "Gays suck"?

Is it more racist to say they swallow?
