    i kinda agree with you on the whole N-word thing. but the homosexual slurs (particularly in video games), not so much. i've heard those words used more as derogatory slurs than common vernacular on Live and Playstation Network, and Microsoft has disallowed (and even banned) people who use the word gay in their gamertags. granted, they say it's because they don't allow references to any sexual orientation, but it's hard to accept that as anything but a tacit statement.


To be clear, these words are still derogatory. They just aren't used (solely) as slurs against homosexuals and and blacks.

Language is constantly changing, a fact that many here simply do not understand.
