Why is the word "***" censored? I mean seriously?
G a y
It shouldn't be.. that is all.
Same way in America. In fact just earlier today I got upset because someone used the word "tranny" which is much worse if you actually know what it's usually referred to, makes me wonder if shemale works too?Serious_Much wrote:I actually agree, in Britain it's actually just what everyone refers to homosexuals as and is the preferred term, but it could still be stigmatised in some countries which could cause issue
Still doesn't fix the issues with the other words. Like I said, I was just upset earlier today by someone (won't name names) who was using quite rude language.reim0027 wrote:It can swing both ways (pun not intended). It can be used to describe homosexuals without insulting them. But, it can also be used as a derogatory term. Then, it can be subtle insults and promote misunderstandings as well. Like: "don't be so ***", could be sarcastic, but may also offend some people.
Sometimes it is better to prevent the fire than it is to extinguish it.
I find it better to be safe than sorry.Hart wrote:
That being said I would actually not mind it being uncensored, as its also a common way to refer to homosexuals here too.
