    The Next Big Hampur Thing

    So I'm reading the article below, and it hits me: this is the Next Big Hampur Thing(tm).

    Forget homo, phaig, fag, fhag and whatever other tired old euphemisms.

    For your consideration, I present:

    [B][SIZE="4"]I denounce thee, man-fancier![/SIZE][/B]

    :alien:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    This week Hollywood director Brett Ratner (“Rush Hour,” “Tower Heist”) was forced to resign from a major gig -- producer of the Oscars -- because while promoting his new movie he answered a question about whether he did rehearsals by saying, “Rehearsal’s for fags.”

    This was perhaps the most high-profile punishment ever administered for use of this word, suggesting “fag” has now joined the N-word and the C-word as one of the three Words You Cannot Say.

    Yet Ratner was using the slur in a juvenile, frat-house sense rather than expressing revulsion for homosexuality or homosexuals. By contrast, Tracy Morgan said in an alarming and apparently considered standup routine that if he had a gay son, “I’ll pull out a knife and stab that little [n-word] to death” -- yet remains employed by “30 Rock.”


    OK, “fag” is a slur that offends many. But if we’re going to start calling people out for tasteless use of stupid, derogatory F-words, how about we blow the whistle on everybody calling everybody a fascist?

    Civilized people recognize that there’s nothing wrong or even embarrassing about being gay. If someone accused me of enjoying the love of other men, I’d just laugh. (And I do, at the not-infrequent hate mail along these lines.) [B]The derogatory intent just doesn’t have much sting. “I denounce thee, man-fancier”? Ridiculous.

    Losing his gig for that sentence is harsh, but I wouldn't go on a warpath saying 'faggot' isn't derogatory.

    Just loltastic!

    The follow-up sentence should be something like "I find your sexual predilections to be off-putting and overly-phallic".
