that stuff is completely useless and if you honestly take that stuff to heart and use it to make actual decisions in your life, then I can’t take you seriously.
I’m seeing people say stuff like “ohhh now I get why my ex and I broke up, he was a gemini, we aren’t compatible.”
riiiiiggghhhttttt THAT’S why your relationship didn’t work out.
finally someone said it!!!!
"what it’s like to play a gay character ?"

Anonymous said: Using retarded never was bad until it was used as slang. Same goes for the term gay. All the negativity happened when they became slang. Retarded isn't a bad word to use. Mentally/physically retarded used to just be the norm of describing disabilities. Gay used to mean happy. These words were not meant to be negative. It's society who made them into it and people like you who keep them as negative words instead of simply using them in their proper manner. Like saying "he's gay" to mean he's glad

Please tell me you’re just trolling me and that you’re not actually that ignorant. It doesn’t matter that an offensive, insensitive, politically incorrect term used to be neutral/slang back in the day. People used to say the n-word as slang mere decades ago — does that make it okay to go around calling people the n-word? And when people use the term “gay” nowadays, they are not using it to express happiness, just like people using the term “retarded” is not to neutrally describe a person’s developmental disabilities.
The fact that these words were used years ago with less of a negative connotation does not - in any way, shape, or form - take away from the fact that they DO have a negative connotation now. The n-word is a very disrespectful, derogatory term - as are “gay” and “retard/retarded” (because both are typically used to say something/someone is stupid, wrong, weird, dumb, etc - i.e., “That’s so gay,” and, “You’re so retarded”). Your ignorance is no longer an excuse for using any of these words, as I have clarified exactly why they are wrong to use as slang. Stop hiding behind your flimsy excuses and justifications and, instead, enrich your vocabulary so you don’t feel the need to turn to politically incorrect terms in order to get your point across.
