      Too bad he had to fling the Eff-word around. During heated moments, we are all prone to react reflexively in the most verbally inappropriate ways. It will take a long time to train that kind of language out of the minds of straight men, even the most hom-friendly of our straight allies.

      Need more of an ally? His use of faggot, to mean weak, is exactly why men in pro sports and all walks of life need to come out. Faggot, gay, queer = weak, effeminate, coward, in the straight world. My friends all used to say gay, meaning stupid or silly, until I came out.

      In college, a professor of mine had us list all of the names we could think of for LGBT people. The list was endless, and I must admit, a bit amusing. The class was roaring with laughter. He then had us list all of the names we could think of for straight people. The class came up with two: straight and breeder. The class fell dead silent. It was a profound moment in my life.

      It’s hard to stop people from saying words that offend us, but it is easy to redefine them, so that when they try to give offense, it doesn’t come out that way. What if, say, at the Academy Awards, the emcee called the ruggedly handsome winner a faggot, and the recipient smiled and took it as a compliment?

      I saw an effeminate gay man walking down the street. A man across the street called him a faggot. He [over]acted as if the man were a long-lost friend. He waved cheerfully, said “Hi, I forgot your name. Where did we meet?” and other pleasantries. The other man scurried off.

      This doesn’t work for words that explicitly describe sex acts, though.

      Ok, leaving aside the other stuff….

      His comment that the only people against gay marriage are secretly afraid that dicks are delicious is great! LOL

      UH Excuse me but isn’t this the same Joe Rogan who called Fallon Fox the transsexual MMA fighter every name in the book and said she had NO Business being allowed to beat up on women since he feels she’s a man ? How quick some of you are to pour out the praise on him. If he were a business wouldn’t we be demanding fully acceptances and not just acceptance of part of the LGBT community or is there a double standard I’m now aware of ?

      @Snapdragon: Call him out on THAT issue. There is an insane amount of trans phobia in the gay community. We were always willing to throw the trans community under the bus in order to pass laws to protect us and benefit us. We still do.

      San Francisco’s so-called “open-mindedness” doesn’t come from a position of intellect. It comes from a position of apathy. The “do whatever you want to do” ethic of San Francisco is the cause of so much drug abuse and STD’s that rack people in San Francisco.

      The hedonism of San Francisco is not a good basis on which to build a truly open-minded society.

      I don’t care what words Joe Rogan uses, positive or negative, the dude doesn’t think the moon landing happened.

      Wait a minute people, I smell a rat. Something does not add up. We need to be cafeful in heaping praise upon someone just because they are a celebrity , or we find them hot. Joe is 46 yrs old. The incident about his friends father getting upset happened when Joe was 11 yrs old. That would have been 35 yrs ago. What state passed a law that allowed GLBT people to get married 35 yrs ago?? I call bullshit on this story. He’s trying too hard to cater, and be a hero to GLBT people.

      Not sure about the marriage thing, but I wonder if he’s talking about the ceremonies gays have had for years to honor their relationships. I’m not making excuses for him, nor am I heaping praise on him, I just like what he says about gay marriage.

      Tackle,

      Well said! At last, a poster who actually reads the stories and thinks about the facts of the matter.

      Jimbryant, my son is mid twenties and straight. Believe me, the gays don’t own the hedonism society in which you speak. Perhaps the only difference is, we don’t recognize it, as we are numb to it in our hetero-sexed society.

      @jimbryant: Thanks. It seems that these days GLBT people are making some damn good Kool-aid .And now, everyone wants to drink it. Well not everyone, but you get what I mean…
