I know we've had some disagreements but I think you're good people Keb, so I don't want you to take this the wrong way but I fucking dare you to offer some of that advice to your Gay, Jewish and/or other friends who belong to minority groups.
Ironically enough, culturally insensitive white people are becoming a minority too so I guess we can expect special powers any day now.
Yeah I don't really have a problem with you either even if I don't agree with your views.
I think the point I would try to make is that there's a time and place for the offensive jokes. I don't use the "n-word" in public and I don't use it with my friends. The only person I've ever joked about it with is my best friend who is also black, but we have a pretty deep bond and understand each other well.
Same goes for a lot of us on the Outhouse. We all know each other and sharing our experiences has allowed us to learn each others' boundaries. I know that Erik telling me about his experiences being bullied and tormented for being gay, and his extreme dislike for people using derogatory terms for gay people have made me more conscious about how I use the term. I've never actually met Erik but interactions on the OH and facebook have let me connect with him enough to respect him as a person and for that I will watch what I write.
I think it's great that you're sharing your opinions and we're getting to know you, even if people don't like what you're saying. The only thing I would caution everybody about is being labeled a troll without doing any actual trolling.
