Re: whats the difference b/w watercooler and off topic
I don't want this to explode into a big argument, but suffice to say that the use of the word gay in a derogatory way and the stereotypical portrayal of American Indians in sports teams' logos are both pretty offensive to lots of people, and to not take this into consideration is, to put it bluntly, pretty shitty.
I completely agree that tons of people are way oversensitive to stuff, and this annoys the hell out of me. However, when it comes to sexual orientation or race or anything of that nature really, there's not a lot of middle ground or room for negotiation for me.
But hey, I'm from Massachusetts .
