Cantabile Posted January 2, 2011 Share Posted January 2, 2011 In this age of the politically correct, why have such hateful and discriminatory words become seemingly commonplace among the younger generations? Teenagers call things "gay" as a negative adjective for everything imaginable: "That test was so gay, dude," "that song is gay, turn it off," completely oblivious to how wrong that is. Replace "gay" with any other category, "That test is so Jewish," and you can see what I mean.I overhear teenagers call each other "nigger" as a playful term of endearment. And I hear people casually use terms of sexual violation for sentences like, "Man, the Yankees ass-raped the Giants in that game last night."And what's worse, people actually justify using these terms! Teenagers think it's perfectly acceptable to throw around "gay" simply because in their minds the word has multiple meanings, and they're not using the one for homosexuality.How can people be so blind as to see how this is making atrocious things like discrimination based on sexual orientation, racism, and sexual violation more socially acceptable? I want to vomit on white people whenever they call their friend "nigger." And for us who are disgusted by this trend in language, what can we do to stop it? :bang: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
