Please, think of the headline writers.

And they wonder why people call them hateful homophobes.
1/2/2009 9:24:39 PM
Why not say disgusting perverted whining abomindable mental retarded sluts rather than mis use a perfectly normal term like christian?
1/2/2009 9:25:30 PM
Because most of us are nice and aren't hate-filled, judgmental Christian fundamentalist hypocrites who go around gratuitously insulting people just because someone's different from them.
1/2/2009 9:35:45 PM
Well, gosh, I don't know ... maybe there are those who want to show a little of that Christian love on which you people pride yourselves?

"Why not say disgusting perverted whining abomindable gender retarded sluts rather than mis use a perfectly normal term like gay?"
Because that would not only be inaccurate but bigoted, mean-spirited and hate filled. You ARE a Christian, aren't you? You ARE aware of Leviticus 19:18, aren't you?
WWJD? He'd bitch-slap you back to the stone age, boy.
1/2/2009 9:40:14 PM
How about homophobic, bigoted, delusional, paranoid halfwits or fundies for short?
1/2/2009 9:49:09 PM
because not all of us are bigots
1/2/2009 9:51:15 PM
Which is why I don't call you Hitch but asshole as it seems so much more appropriate rather than to destroy a perfectly fine name like Hitch.
1/2/2009 9:59:04 PM
Hi Hitch, Love and peace to you, and to all the wonderful folks at CARM.
Do you see? That's how it's done.
1/2/2009 10:01:03 PM
Because that would be rude.
1/2/2009 10:08:25 PM
"You're such a DPWAGRS!"
See? Even the acronym doesn't work.
1/2/2009 10:14:41 PM
Because we have respect for ourselves, respect for others, and even have ::gasp:: SELF-ESTEEM. These seem to be foreign concepts to you.
1/2/2009 10:26:03 PM
Because they are attracted to the same gender and hence, gay fits?
1/2/2009 10:54:32 PM
a mind far far away
Like saying "bigoted, hatefilled, bloodmongering, cuntlicking son of a whore" instead of christian? Works for me.
1/2/2009 11:06:52 PM
Why don't we call this person Son-of-a-Bitch instead of Hitch?
1/2/2009 11:12:07 PM
... because we're not all assholes like you.

1178, "full of joy or mirth," from O.Fr. gai "gay, merry" (12c.); cf. O.Sp. gayo, Port. gaio, It. gajo. Ultimate origin disputed; perhaps from Frank. *gahi (cf. O.H.G. wahi "pretty"), though not all etymologists accept this. Meaning "brilliant, showy" is from c.1300.
OED gives 1951 as earliest date for slang meaning "homosexual" (adj.), but this is certainly too late; gey cat "homosexual boy" is attested in N. Erskine's 1933 dictionary of "Underworld & Prison Slang;" the term gey cat (gey is a Scot. variant of gay) was used as far back as 1893 in Amer.Eng. for "young hobo," one who is new on the road and usually in the company of an older tramp, with catamite connotations. But Josiah Flynt ["Tramping With Tramps," 1905] defines gay cat as, "An amateur tramp who works when his begging courage fails him." Gey cats also were said to be tramps who offered sexual services to women. The "Dictionary of American Slang" reports that gay (adj.) was used by homosexuals, among themselves, in this sense since at least 1920.
Rawson ["Wicked Words"] notes a male prostitute using gay in reference to male homosexuals (but also to female prostitutes) in London's notorious Cleveland Street Scandal of 1889. Ayto ["20th Century Words"] calls attention to the ambiguous use of the word in the 1868 song "The Gay Young Clerk in the Dry Goods Store," by U.S. female impersonator Will S. Hays. The word gay in the 1890s had an overall tinge of promiscuity -- a gay house was a brothel. The suggestion of immorality in the word can be traced back to 1637. Gay as a noun meaning "a (usually male) homosexual" is attested from 1971.
Gay hasn't for a long time solely had that "innocent" meaning

What does "abomindable" mean?
1/2/2009 11:46:32 PM
Why not say close-minded bigoted ignorant homophobic mentally retarded fundies than mis use a perfectly normal term like human?
1/2/2009 11:52:11 PM
Because they're human beings and your opinion on the matter, specially if it concerns language, is irrelevant.

abomindable mis use
Why not learn proper English rather than misuse perfectly normal words like abominable and misuse? Not to mention your abuse of commas. They're feeling left out.

Somebody sounds rather jealous of those "sluts".
