  • i used homo on here the other week and got slammed
    but i also used hetero in same sentence ?? people must not have read whole sentence or some people are just stupid idiots.
    i was just appreviating, obvious because not many people use hetero as slang

    still got bashed, slammed, cursed etc

  • I use the F word quite often as well, my 9 year old calls me out on it though, I really, really shouldn't be saying it as much as I do.

  • I say that things are gay, and that things are straight lol. I've been working on this one but still slip sometimes: When something isn't working (like a shopping cart with a messed up wheel) I'll say it's being retarded. When I say it, I immediately kick myself for it because I despise that word.

  • Its funny because I swear when I know I shouldn't but never ever use gay or retarded as adjectives and would actually be angrier at my kids for that than if they swore.

  • I use both Retard and Gay, but I don't see any reason not to. Use is more important than what the word is... I mean, I tell my husband he's "Gay for pay" all the time - it doesn't mean he is... And it doesn't mean I have anything against Gays (I'm Bi & Proud) It's just an expression... Calling a pair of pants retarded doesn't have anything to do with insulting differently abled people... It's an expression. If I wasn't comfortable with a word, I wouldn't use it...

  • I don't really 'cuss', but I'm not 'politically correct' either.
