>>136025804 I've gotten used to 4chan. I even find some of the memes very funny. I lurk in a ton of boards and actually enjoy the threads. But this term is bothering me to the point I'm willing to be flamed to say something about it.
"Faggot" is a slur. Period. In my view it is every bit as bad as "N-word". And yet I see it used all the time in /a/ and other places including by some posters. I otherwise respect and enjoy interacting with.
I know what the response to this will be. "It's 4chan, what do you expect", for one. I don't accept this. Inane is fine. Hateful is not. I've got no problem with taking shit in thread and even a little bit of flaming from time to time - basically, stuff happens. I just think that we can do this without crossing the line to hate speech.
Slurs based on race, gender, nationality, or sexual preference have no place anywhere, including in our community. I hope that other 4channer will join me in timing people out and even (after repeated violations) banning for use of this and similar terms. Thanks for reading.
>>136027049 >>136027109 >>136028713 Common guys. There are honestly hundreds of thousands of derogatory terms. Why do you insist on using the least offensive one on 4chan? I call guys fags when I'm asking them a question or something in here. Try to use your thinking box a little more.
>>136026700 I know you love to call the people you disagree with you outsiders, but the problem with /a/ is you. Every posting style that /a/ has developed memetically is unfunny and obnoxious. You can find better discussion in youtube comments, and most of /a/ is best girl flame wars and fawning over softcore porn. You assume your board is a paradise and redirect anybody who doesn't fit in to /v/. You belong to both the dumbest and most pretentious board on this site. You are misguided. You think you are protecting something valuable when you are only fitting in to delusional groupthink. The project of your life is a vapid wasteland, a glitzy casino made of recycled water bottles, a treasured nothing. You will believe you've won an argument when I stop responding. You are an idiot and belong in the prison you built out of strangers.
