    Anyone ever notice how many anti gay statements are made by people playing video games? You hear everything from "fag" to "dick sucker" being yelled out.
    I watch some people play online through twitch and even YouTube and found a few favorites to watch. I've started to notice that most of them continuously use these statements when angry to express disgust at losing, to another player, or to lord their greatness over other players/the game. So now I'm not sure I want to keep watching any of them.

    "It's just a word". Just about everyone says that! That's not the point!
    If you called some one a "mother fucker" 9/10 people would get mad about it even if you said it was just what people say and that's not what it actually means. You can call some one a "bitch" and mean it very lighthearted and funny. Not everyone will know that though. It doesn't change the original meaning just because that's not how you meant it.

    "Everyone says shit like that." WRONG! I try and refrain from saying things that I know are under most circumstances insults. It's not me trying to be super nice or overly PC. I just want what I say to have a clear meaning to it. I don't want people to sit there and second guess what I say.

    "It was said in anger". So gay people make you angry?
    "Just because I said fag doesn't mean I think they are gay." So what are you calling them then because "fag" is something that is associated with gays.
    "Fag is like an asshole or someone you don't like or think is a piece of shit." I . . . . Wow.
    "It doesn't mean anything." So why say it then? You can't think of something else scathingly witty to insult them with?

    Words are MEANT to have power and meaning! Otherwise there would be no point in them! The words faggot and gay are used to describe people as undesirable and disgusting. Bitch and cunt are often used in the same manner. so society is saying that the two most disgusting things to possibly be is a woman or some one of the LGBTQ community. its not just guys who say it either. there are plenty of women out there saying these things and I have to wonder if they realize how much intolerance they are spreading.

    Would it be accepted if I were to go around saying that things I think are boring and lame are "straight"? No it wouldn't because its placing all other sexualities above the straight one and saying it is inferior in some way. Of course I of all people would see that this is a problem but I don't know how there are so many people out there that don't or even encourage this hate by actively using derogatory statements.
    Is it to much to ask for people to step back and evaluate what they are ACTUALLY saying and putting out there? Why try tearing everyone else down? Are these people so unhappy that they feel no one else deserves a chance at happiness and a little bit of peace?

    This isint to say that ALL gamers and people make these remarks and choices but a great enough portion have for me to take notice.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If there are any articles/situations you want brought to light and put here in the OP or thread title pm them to me or post them up and ask for them to be put in here (I will credit you for the find aswell <3). I say this since im Gay i probably wont hear much about whats happening on say the Bi or Lesbian side of the fight.

    "Don't give to a well-known, trusted organization that you know will deliver on their promises! Give to some lesser known donation group that may or may not pocket the money!"

    No disrespect, but i'd rather donate money to a group I can trust.

    I dont take it as disrespect at all. Its your choice to donate to whomever you please. I just dont think some of what they do is right so i wouldnt and wont donate my money to them. I would donate clothing and such tho.
