It should be socially acceptable in the sense that "dickwad" is socially acceptable.

Should people be chastised for saying it? No. Should it be censored during prime time? If the channel wishes for it, than go ahead. I don't agree with FCC censorship, but I do believe that curse words hold their strength through the fact that they are so taboo.

yea, name calling shouldn't effect someone on too deep of a level, and if it does its a sign of a bad psychological state. Name calling is more descriptive of the caller then the calle and in general does more harm to the caller.

yes, "toxic enviroments"(those which create bad states of mind) should be avoided. A toxic environment is different then name calling, name calling may be part of a toxic environment but not necessarily.

I've made this arguement before.

But once we stop making words "curses" they will cease to hold power and it will be impossibe to be offended by them.

That said, every person has just as much right to be offended as another has a right to free speech. I'm not for this false victimization the right and some "libertarians" like to play often about their rights are in jeopardy. Same thing, if I call someone with a fannypack a fag, or if my friend won't take a shot and I call him a fag, I'm not discriminating against a sexual preference in either case. You have every right to say whatever, you also have a right to be offended by whatever.

No one's taking your liberties bitches either way, say it if you want, be offended if you want.

A single word is not specific enough to cause such turmoil. A 13 year old can walk into a theatre and watch a hundred people die horrible deaths. If a nip shows or someone says "fuck" they need parental permission. The human species is fucking embarassing with our superstitions and puritanism sometimes.

Over here (in Ireland and England) a Fag is a cigarette. They do however say Fagot as an insult to Homosexuals, but I find the word Fag to be strictly American.

The phrasing of these debates always leaves me a little perplexed on choosing which side is most appropriate for my opinion, because A) I'd never say society should act a certain way, and B) Fag is an inappropriate term that is subject to a bias not readily discussed in the context of the debate.

-

As such, I've determined, whilst all the while being aware of those like christjesus, that the debate supporters will likely hold the bias formerly discussed. So, I shall take the negative side to this debate.

-

Homophobia should not be supported. Ignorance is the prime mover of fear, and fear of aggression.

Any form of slur whether the goal is to degrade a race/orientation/sex is indefinitely inherently wrong.

Saying the word Fag is ok is like saying the word Nigger is ok ( don't worry I'm black ~joking~( and i am only saying it to prove a point) or saying that calling a mexican border jumper is ok or calling a muslam( i know it's spelled wrong) girl a terrorist it ain't right and for all the white racists out there it's like calling a white person ... um...darn there aren't any good ones ... oh well... like if i said bleach died monkey ( i made that up) to a white guy or saying that they are in the kkk or something like that it's wrong so to bring it in a full around circel there is no way you could ever convice me that saying fag is socialy acceptabel

The term fag is a word that breeds hatred and is directed for the sole purpose of making a person feel ashamed or low about him or herself. Such a word should never be acceptable in society. There should be a level of respect in society and also a person should be sanctioned for using such a term because the n word is also a word of hatred but if you use it, you can also lose your job especially if you are holding a high position in society. Furthermore, since this word is directed towards homosexuals, there will be an increase in retributive crimes and also suicides.

Side: Hell no!

It's mean to say that word to a Gay man. It's not a nice word at all.

Able to be said? Yes. On television, no. Only on certain channels, comedy could be one.
