re: When Did It Become Okay To Call Someone Queer? - KrushGroove
[quote]Up North, the term, queer, was/is not used.[/quote] what's "North"? In New England, New York, and southern Ontario and Quebec it's used commonly and has been for almost two decades...

re: When Did It Become Okay To Call Someone Queer? - KrushGroove
[quote]Still, I couldn't imagine in a million years saying something like "I had no idea that Doogue Houser was queer", instead of "I had no idea he was gay" in front of a gay person. Not in a million years.[/quote] And this wouldn't be my experience. I think because I've heard it used academical...

[quote]I lived in San Francisco from 1989-1995[/quote] and the date I gave you was after this. The word definitely became, and is, much more acceptable. [quote]a word that can be considered offensive to some people[/quote] this goes for a lot of words. That doesn't mean that it is not (an...

re: "Cancel All Student Debt" - The Petitions Begin - KrushGroove
[quote]Loans-by-major would only introduce lender risk management practices that would help to stave off this problem in the future. [/quote] except that it might not. Solid majors a few years ago haven't turned out to be maintained. For example: Postgraduate degrees in fields that had a lot of...

[quote]Well, since we had a duplicate thread that's been removed I'll answer again. I had lots of gay friends in college. They had no problem with the term 'queer'. They were offended by 'fag.'[/quote] yup. This goes back to the point I was trying to make above. "queer" is much more establishe...

re: When Did It Become Okay To Call Someone Queer? - KrushGroove
[quote]Of course, they are also well-educated and irreverent so terms such as "fairy, queen, fag" flow freely.[/quote] and those words don't really appear as mainstream or accepted. I would say that if we are talking about reclamation of disparaging terms (the n-word has been brought up a couple...

re: When Did It Become Okay To Call Someone Queer? - KrushGroove
[quote]I guess it depends on your environment. I'm sure I used it as well without being admonished. I doubt that would hold if I said "you goddamned queer" to a gay guy's face.[/quote] but "you goddamned Mexican" would be considered more offensive than simply saying that someone was "Mexican" rig...

re: When Did It Become Okay To Call Someone Queer? - KrushGroove
[quote]Queer encapsulates all within the LBGTQ community. They "reclaimed" the word among themselves (like some use the n-word or redneck proudly in certain contexts). It would still be considered offensive for one of us to call one of them a queer.[/quote] as someone outside that community and h...

re: "Cancel All Student Debt" - The Petitions Begin - KrushGroove
[quote]Maybe part of the solution going forward is to make only certain majors eligible for student loans on a pro rata basis. The formula could be based on the employment rate by major. The highest employment majors get the best loans. The lowest employment majors get the worst loans. It's a ris...

re: When Did It Become Okay To Call Someone Queer? - KrushGroove
[quote]"Queer" used to be OK, before it wasn't. Like the N-word, it can only be used by certain persons or groups. If you have to ask, you aren't allowed to use it.[/quote] not true, not any part of this really...

re: "Cancel All Student Debt" - The Petitions Begin - KrushGroove
It's an issue that needs addressing but this plan doesn't really address the central problems, which include the rising cost of tuition (most people here who went to school years ago, like me, and got advanced degrees, like me, were able to do it at more affordable rates with better job prospects), ...

[quote]Hypocrisy at it's best.. Criticizing a group because it was founded over 150 years ago by Confederate sympathizers but yet voting for the same political party that supported the institution of slavery. [/quote] I'm not sure you know what "hypocrisy" and "best" mean...

re: Maureen Dowd turns on Hillary - KrushGroove
what a disgusting episode. Hopefully this is held against her when the time comes to run, but the disappointing thing is that it might not have an impact. The fact she has a real shot at the White House is :banghead:...

[quote]Not sure how integrated we are here.

[quote]That was my whole point which you disputed[/quote] *sigh* I have already explained it. More than once. You have yet to offer anything of substance, but again that's not surprising. If you want to call it "backing off" that's fine. You're wrong, but that's not stopped you before. ...

[quote]you commented, "wow", as if it were not true.[/quote] the "wow" was in reference to: 1. the fact that they were not created for the Irish and I explicitly said so in the response. Ghettos existed long before the Irish were in America. I followed that up with the domestic disclaimer, i...
