@2: Why not just ignore Charles?

Because you can't! Mudede's prose jumps from the screen and dares you not to read.

Charles is an acid trip that's gotten too intense. Don't fight it, you'll only make it worse. Just relax and try to enjoy the disorienting perspective that he, a one-of-a-kind eccentric of the type only Seattle could produce, brings to this city.

UNCUT: FYI - pretty much any variant of amphetamines will have you fucking for hours. MDMA works as well but tends to produce a rather anti-climactic climax.

@Fortunate: you live in a very privileged environment

Yes, I basically live in Sodom and rarely leave unless it's to go to Gomorrah. We definitely see bridge and tunnelers come in and use the term as a slur, but allies seem to understand the nuances, and none of them would argue that gay people have to tolerate the term because they use it themselves.

@ven: hearing the F word used did give him a miniscule pleasurable jolt referring back to his anti-gay (arguably with cause) youth

I entered college in the late 80s, just as gay acceptance was starting to gain steam and promptly made my first out gay friend, a 28-year old "towny" I met through work. He'd often refer to men (including me) as a "big fag" and/or "slut". I thought he was hilarious and I loved (and identified with) his irreverence. I credit him with planting the idea that men are by and large total sluts, and that's OK. I felt like Dorothy in Oz that whole year (except with women, drugs, and sophomoric philosophical debates, oh my!). It was a different sort of "pleasurable jolt".

@ven, @Fortunate: white people still, as a general rule, can't get away with calling a black person the N-word. Yet everyone thinks it should be fine to call a gay person the F-word.

Really? I've never heard straight friendlies use the F-word unless maybe they've achieved insider status or if it's used in the service of ribald humor of the sort popular among my burner friends (most of whom are considered trusted insiders by the gays in our group anyway). Even in that context, I've rarely (if ever) heard the term used.

Misuse of the F-word may not have the quite the same level of stigma as the N-word, but I think it still carries a sizable cargo of awkwardness. See, for example, this thread.

@EricaP: I did think it was odd that Dan told the LW to use that term

I read that as self-deprecating humor, not something intended to be taken literally.

@Dirtclustit: just like the grammarians have done wrong

Yeah, I can kind of see how you and grammarians wouldn't get along.

@vennominon: Conversion therapy?? Wow. You've seen some things.

I understand your point, but still, I think "Hey Faggot" was a net positive in its day as it took the shame out of the word, at least for those without lasting traumatic associations. It said "Yes, I'm a faggot, so what?" When you consider how the N-word is used in hip hop, one might speculate that reclaiming slurs is a natural step in the progression of acceptance for minorities.

And yes, it was also good marketing.

Not to be a wet blanket or anything but if LW does manage to bed this 21 year old kid, the sex will be over in 3 minutes.

@Philophile: Yes, and when a woman decides to have sex with you, she's taking pity on you

Damn. I suspected as much.

I can't tell if you're being obscurely witty or impossibly ignorant in type

I was aiming for the former. I assumed my comments were ridiculous enough to make that clear, but I guess stupider things have been said in earnest on the internet.

If you are hiding intelligence, why the whinge that your roll out turned off your ex last week?

My roll? I could probably stand to lose 5-10 pounds, but I don't have any rolls. Maybe you're confusing me with someone else?
