hey man. you posted on my page back in march, trying to show me where to post for LEOG questions. either the link is no good anymore or it wasnt correct when you posted it. where do i post questions for the next LEOG now?
My older brother is gay (which is totally fine with me) and recently I had a conversation about the use of the word faggot with him and how it's OK to him for gay people to use the term but not others. When I asked him why that's OK given the definition of the word, he wasn't able to give me any sort of real answer.
My question is why do you think it's OK for minorities to use derogatory terms with each other (like African-Americans calling people the N-word), given how hurtful, racist, and demonizing such words have been in the past? Does it create a double standard?
Sorry if this question seems dumb coming from a middle-class white male, but I am curious about your thoughts.
