It used be offensive to say Jesus Christ as an expletive. Now nearly everyone does. Language evolves, for better or for worse. Faggot is just another word.

Jesus Christ was never a slur and saying words evolve so their historical connection doesn't matter is kinda silly if you choose to make that you're reason for ignoring their definition/connations of a word. It's 2018 are we seriously trying to pretend ***got is an okay thing to say? Jesus

"***got" itself evolved though, didn't it? Can't forget the whole "bundle of sticks" definition.

Yeah and currently it's mostly used a slur so I don't really see your point. Past definitions of things don't make saying what is now a slur great to do. When it starts popularly meaning bundle of sticks again go hog wild.

Well the current definition is two-fold: a gay slur and the ultimate slur against a male. The second version is reliant on the history of the first but its meaning has still been diluted to the extent that it has its own nebulous definition.

I mean that's probably why people care about it being casually said right

Well yeah but there's still a version that has its place, just a narrow place. I don't use it in real life mostly because A.) I got scared off from using it for years for reasons of being a mildly good person and B.) there are way too many ****ing people around who I'd be worried about taking my using to mean that I'm disparaging gays just like they do. But on a fairly liberal internet forum where homophobes are run off or marginalized I don't really worry about contributing to a homophobic environment, and if some people think it is a homophobic environment then I think they're misinterpreting the culture here. We're not homophobes. We're just *******s.

I only hold opinions on things if Eminem says them in his Trump diss track.
