Queerty is better as a member
Yeah right, that sounds like “fun,” especially if one of the kids is actually gay.
When Ozzie’s kids do some supposedly menial chore like take out the trash, does he say “You’re a sp*c” just to joke around with with them?
In a situation where you have a bunch of straight guys who know each other well enough, I think if they call each other “faggot” in the privacy of wherever they’re hanging out (and I do mean privacy, I don’t want to hear that word in public), that’s fine, they all understand that there’s no hate behind it (hypothetically speaking, of course. the other Greg has a very valid point that these supposedly “fun” exchanges often require the silence of closeted LGBTs in the room).
However, the word “faggot” or “maricón” (Acento, Sr. Escobar! Acento!) has a history of hate attached to it when placed in the broader cultural context. I don’t really care what any of these guys do in private. Ideally, they wouldn’t be machismo bigots, but that’s their prerogative, not mine. But when I hear that word, there’s a part of me that panics because of the very real associations with it, and Mr. Escobar has no right to force those feelings on me.
Never miss a good opportunity to shut up, Ozzie. And when your colleague was handed a three day suspension, that was the opportunity.
Kind of like saying, “I beat my wife, but it’s different in my country.”
Just chase the ball and shut the f*ck up!
Wow, maybe the league can save some more money and suspend him for three days.
@the other Greg:
I dont think he would understand that, he didnt grow up here. Maybe something about him being Catholic would put it in persepctive.
Here I thought Guillen was too old, and too male, for Escobar’s mom to have had sex with…
Why else would he be defending him?
This Cuban does not find it funny at all!
