If saying that football players are panzies is offensive, I don't see how that wouldn't be offensive as well. Thank you for editing your post though.

Sorry, but "gay" has become synonymous with negative connotations in everyday language. Many words have more than one meaning, and gay now has three in everyday use: Fun/happiness (the original meaning), homosexuality, and, as I said above, a negative, non-specific adjective.

And before you start bitching at me, maybe spare a thought about the times you use words such as

-lame
-demented
-retarded
-spaz/spastic/etc.

And the how it might make people with these serious conditions feel?

That's cool, but it can still be offensive.

@Slov: What?

And in this case (note the smiley), "silly, but I'd watch it!". At least that's how I read it. Had I seen it as purely negative, common synonyms or not, I'd have edited it. Just because it's common doesn't mean it's right.

When I read Tank's post I imagined some guys playing hockey in dark with bunch of coloured flash lights, wearing Tron movie outfit, with 80s dance music, doing some ice dancing moves every time they score... yeah it would be funny ^^

I think discussion about which sport is good and not is lame and I didn't mean hockey players are ... so :roll:

ok, well I expect any word with a dual meaning one negative connotation, and one a descriptive condition or system to be treated in the same way as "gay" by the mods/admins then. I don't see why any particular group of people should be given special treatment because they are louder at complaining, or more prominant in todays society.

hey look at me, fighting for the real little guys.

The bold expectation will not be fulfilled.

I don't see why (to the second part of your post) either.

back on topic:

Code: Select all

 
int main()
{
     int cats = 9001;
     StupidSports s;
     OtherStupidSports s1;

     s.football = s1.soccer;
     s.americanFootball = s1.handEgg; 
     s.hockey = s1.stupidRandomBoringSportPlayedOnIce;

     return cats;
}

Definitely need a glow in the dark puck. I remember playing pond hockey at night with flashlights, we lost the puck 10 minutes in and ended up just skating around and getting drunk, eventually having the required drunken flashlight/light saber fights. Good times.
You've gone too far, turn back!
