    I'm Australian and I've noticed we get the tag "Casually racist". That's mainly because we use a lot of words that the rest of the world sees as offensive. I've had to guard myself around people from other countries for fear of offending them... Hey, I only found out f----- is a hugely offensive word when I was 17. So to me all this discussion seems to be blown way out of proportions because in Australia we say just about anything (of course I can't speak for every Australian).

    Someone explained it to me this way once when it comes to being gay and hearing words like faggot etc. Imagine you spent 8 to 13 years of your life trying to work out what is going on with your sexuality. Being attracted to people you really shouldn't when it comes to TV and Movies. Then imagine that the people you can identify with in those films and shows being the butt of every joke just because they aren't like everyone else. That would make you ashamed of that part of you for a long time. Enough time for those 'words' to really set in and dig deep inside you. You get a shock of anxiety whenever someone says. Then you finally come out, you don't have to be ashamed. But those words still hold meaning to you. Then people who haven't gone through that say "just get a thicker skin" like it's that easy.

    Miles, since you asked for feedback, I think it's important to note that while you obviously hit a point where you realized that gay as a synonym for 'bad' was not something you should be saying, it's not like we hit a cultural understanding this is the case--go on any online multiplayer game, and you'll still find people using "gay" and "f----t" as pejoratives with depressing regularity. 


    The issue is, of course, that even if it's not intentional, constantly using (or hearing!) "that's so gay!" as shorthand for "that thing is bad" or "that thing sucks" creates an *unconscious link* in people's minds. So even if you don't think being gay is bad, there's gonna be that link for a lot of people. And if you're hearing that constantly while growing up, such as in elementary or middle school, it's gonna create some unconscious prejudice/bias that will take a long time to get rid of. 


    So yes, it's great that many people (such as yourself) came to a realization and stopped using phrases like that, but we can't pretend that as a culture/society we're all come to this place, and need to be aware that it's still rampant across the country, and especially in the younger, more impressionable crowds.

    I think the biggest problem with the english language is that context is key. A friend saying a word to another friend in a joking manner where both people know it's a joke and no malice is behind it, and someone who is using it for hate is entirely two different things. I understand there is things that offends people, but there is also a point at which it feels that people are offended purely for the sake of being offended. It definitely feels like crossing a minefield a lot of the time. Comedy =/=real hate

    I think we all just need to harden our skin. And like strengthening a muscle or building an immunity, the only way to do it is by taking some hits until the hits don't hurt as much. It sucks in the short term but pays off in the long run. No one ever got stronger by avoiding a weight.

      Sure they do; you eventually get faster if you keep running away from your problems, right? /j


      There are a few issues with just 'hardening skin'; one of them being that it's not exactly "easy," but just saying "it isn't supposed to be" in response to that helps no one. What ever happened to just calling something what it was instead of using some taboo word to make it (and by proxy the word itself) worse? Like, overusing some words takes power away from them while replacing them idea with "some other conveniently short word" just transfers that power.


      Another issue with it is if you've got a bunch of people that just don't care, it's the same problem from the other side of things. If you don't care, what's the point in doing anything? "But that's not how people work--" that's absolutely how people work. They grow from experiencing life, not from turtling up and making life either work harder or not at all. If they don't care, much less or nothing affects them, and they stop growing as people. Alternately, there's "being the bigger person" which does so well for itself; it's literally deciding "I will not let this issue bother me" as it then goes off to bother someone else. There's nothing to gain out of getting harder skin, or not caring, or being the bigger person; no one really goes out to find the people that do that and praise their emotional or mental presence of mind, or when they do the phrase is "I wouldn't/couldn't have done that. Here's what I would have done..." Maybe it's wishful thinking, meant to clear the air whether it may-or not have crossed their mind to begin with, but it never goes around to "You did the right thing."

    Being from the northeast, close to where Michael is from, I do have to say that Jersey Mikes as a chain comes closest to being able to make a good hogie. Their bread is subpar, but other than that, everything else is pretty damn good. Miles is absolutely wrong, at least about Jersey Mikes, I haven't tried thundercloud or whatever so I can not form an opinion on that.

    *Hears the loud sandwich debate and hides behind couch....Slowly peers back over at cutscene.... smiles.... continues eating sandwich* 


    Word Debate and Trigger...

    Trigger should be reserved for big things and when the listener/ reader has no escape... Gore which makes people uncomfortable in a bad way is one that may affect memories. I understand.  On the other hand, there is a lot that can trigger and can be avoided by the reader. If I am going to watch something especially a game which may contain a trigger, it is my responsibility if it affects me. If I am going to read posts, it is my responsibility if I see a picture that may offend or scare me. If something is bothering me, I walk away. I won't deny what people do. No one should have to hide who they are when they are in a place where they are going to speak their mind. No one should be guarded if they are making a show or posting to their friends. 


    When I think it is more important for triggers and watching of language.... when people cannot control what is being said around them. I am not offended by language, but if I am in charge of a kid who may use the word wrongly, I have to guard that and are annoyed when people refuse me that courtesy. I had a customer with a child ask the woman behind her in line nicely to please not use language in front of her child. The response was "F*** off, you c**t"  Child asked what it meant and repeated it .... there are words that the child won't understand and can't be explained, but will repeat wrongly which will only cause more trouble along the line. Cursing when you stub you toe, fine. It becomes an act of frustration... uncontrolled... After the stroke, my uncles first words were swearing because it was an action not thinking... But cursing just to be funny or to add a little color in the wrong place... really?

    I also agree with guys on the offensive words topic. The words are just sounds that we agreed have one meaning and not the other. It is true that they can change thus creating more "bad words" in addition to the hard coded ones. This is what happens in every living language, with every word.  


    I may be weird but for me the tone and expression of speaker is superior to any set of vowels and consonants they may using. This is the natural way of communication. 


    This brings me to why people may be a bit more sensitive than they used to (in my opinion, no evidence or research that i know of). Nowadays we use a lot of different ways to communicate. Almost all of them are solely based on written/spoken word with no actual interaction. This (to me) feel very strange, unsettling and unnatural. I imagine that people, being insecure creatures, are more alert in their interactions. To feel safer, in that weird world, they create or rather turn more words into their offensive versions. To avoid them and feel a little bit safer while not seeing facial expressions of other person.


    I know i drifted a little there but i felt the need to share this.

    The common problem in a lot of these situations where someone is offended or triggered by something that another person thought to be perfectly reasonable is that there is a substitution of subjective opinions in place of objective truth, the latter of which is a fairly nebulous concept of what a hypothetical "reasonable" person would do. However, this hypothetical reasonable person really doesn't exist in reality. Real people have different subjective standards that are either more strict or less strict that this objective "reasonable person" standard.


    There is a reason why the level of scrutiny for punishing those accused of crimes is "beyond reasonable doubt": reasonable minds are capable of disagreeing on a LOT of things, and if it is reasonable to disagree as to someone else's guilt, then you must acquit. On the other side, if the evidence is sufficient, then the only doubts that should be left in the minds of the jury would be unreasonable ones. Not all doubts, mind you, but just the unreasonable ones should be left, meaning that reasonable minds wouldn't disagree to convict someone and deprive them of life and liberty.


    The reason I bring this up is because the ultimate crux of the problem here is that, by substituting personal subjective beliefs in the face of more objective "reasonable" standards that are beyond any one person, we are outright refusing to acknowledge the validity of alternative perspectives and assume that our viewpoint is the ONLY correct viewpoint. Why? Because we assume that we're reasonable and rational since we can cite our supporting evidence for our views, and yet we don't extend the same assumption to anyone else. Or we force others to jump through hoops to justify themselves. Moreover, we don't defend each other's rights to have such diverting opinions, again, because we only assume that our view is the only legitimate one.


    Then there is also the issue that people so strongly tie their opinions to their sense of identity that they view a dissenting opinion as an attack on their foundation as a person. It's like people are Jenga towers and they feel someone trying to knock out a block is an attack on the structural integrity of the tower, even if the other person may be trying to help you understand a different point of view and that this level of enlightenment might actually make the tower grow taller. Unfortunately though, this insecurity and fragility makes people instinctively defensive, and it's hard to have a balanced conversation with someone who has their guard up.


    It's one thing to say, "Let's agree to disagree," but to actually live up to this mantra in a genuine fashion is something different, and I don't think people are doing that these days, all because of a disproportionate assumption of people's collective ability to showcase the same level of reasonableness and rationality, yet come to different conclusions. When there are multiple reasonable answers to the same question, "correct" and "incorrect" become irrelevant terms. Even trying to argue as to which answer is "more correct" is a waste and a source of needless contention; if both answers are "correct" does it matter that one is "more" correct? No, it doesn't.

    I think it's easy to say that certain words only have power if you let them, but it's important to remember that some of these words have been used as pejoratives for decades or more - roughly a century in the case of the F-word. That's a long history of hate, creating negative connotations that don't simply get washed away when these words are used for the sake of comedy. Even if a particular usage of the F-word might not be intended to insult to someone, that doesn't change that the main reason why the word exists in the first place is as something to denigrate gay and trans people. This is especially true considering many of these kinds of words are still often used with malice and directed at minority communities. 


    That isn't to say that words can't be reclaimed. Queer is an interesting example, because it's a word that was used as an anti-gay slur for decades, but has recently become a fairly acceptable umbrella term for people who are not heterosexual or not cisexual. However, again going back to history, that change only happened thanks to the efforts of LGBT activists and academics starting in the early 1980's - it was the people who had been the targets of that word that were able to change the insulting meaning. Similarly, I think that if the F-word or other homophobic/transphobic words are ever going to be reclaimed, it'll be a result of queer people taking steps to do so, not heterosexual or cisexual people telling jokes using the words. As an example, the show Louie has a fantastic scene where Rick Crom, a gay comic, uses the F-word while talking about the impact it can have even when used in a comedic context. As another example, Laura Jane Grace - a transgender woman and punk musician - used slurs in the Against Me! album Transgender Dysphoria Blues and recently titled her autobiography Tranny specifically to refer to her experiences with transphobia, homophobia, and discrimination. 


    Anyway, rant aside, I really enjoyed this ep. Backwards Compatible is one of the shows I look forward to the most every week, and all of DMC has been fantastic so far.

    In regards to the bad movies discussion: I think you guys look at these movies being one person or a single studio (Warner Bros for Suicide Squad, Sony for Emoji Movie, etc.) while hundreds and sometimes thousands of people work on these movies. Just because they're universally panned but make extremely high amount of money, like the Transformers series isn't necessarily a bad thing. 

    And again if people want to watch a bad movie "To see how bad it is" that's their choice, you do not have to watch it. If they choose to make Emoji Movie 2 and people see it, let them. You don't have to. People have fun with that stuff AND it employs so many people.

    I totally agree with you Miles on the context of words when it comes to offence. I'm from the UK and an example of this I found funny growing up is the word "Twat" (sidenote: we pronounce it 'Tw@' and I don't understand why Americans say 'Twot') because in southern England, where I was raised, that word is used as lightly as 'crap' or 'arse', it was mildly offensive but nobody would gasp at hearing it in public. However in South Wales where my mum is from, 'Twat' used to be as bad as 'cunt'. I said it once in front of my Welsh grandparents and they nearly screamed in shock. I just found it really funny and was careful what I said in front of my Welsh family. But in recent years it's been used so much in TV and stuff that the word is very desensitised to the point where I say it for comedic effect in front of my mother without worry.


    I definitely agree that if we forcibly keep 'offensive words' out of media and have a shit fit any time someone says any of them no matter the context, the word will just increase in power and offensiveness.

    Seriously, if you can't handle a word out of context, or even let one insult ruin your day, you need to grow up. Yeah, being a dick and intentionally using trauma to fuck with someone needs to be avoided and is one of the shittyist things a person can do, but trying to completely avoid a problem just makes it worse. A pressure will build up, the word becomes far worse than previously viewed, and everything becomes a fucking pipe bomb waiting to blow.

    And this is coming from somebody who has and does face this sort of thing. I have Asperger's, so not only do I have to deal with arrogant jackasses using the term autistic as an insult, I also have to deal with being treated like a child, like I'm mentally impaired, or (a lesser known problem to NTs) like I'm a fucking SERIAL KILLER. I've lived my whole life being treated like a threat and a problem, and the organizations that try to speak for my plight treat it like a disease to be cured or a burden for family to deal with. The best comparison is to a different culture, we just don't understand communication and actions like most people, and most people don't understand it like us, but we are still treated by "our" activists as something needing a cure.

    So, dealing with this, do I lose my shit when people act like ignorant cunts? No. If it's a troll or moron with their head so far up their ass they can't even hear a fart, you just report them, understand their opinion and thoughts mean jack shit, and move on with your life. If it's a person that can listen to reason, explain the situation and impact of the term, spreading awareness about your cause, and everyone can go about their day as normal.

    If someone uses the term autistic as a non-derogatory term, then I actually encourage it. Normalizing and reinforcing a word to a non-harmful meaning removes any threat of it, both to new generations, as well as reducing the pain it creates to those previously harmed by it. The best way to handle a fear or trauma is to face it in safe settings. Otherwise you let the trauma dictate and impact your life, at which point the trauma becomes just as harmful as the initial damage.

    With all that in mind, I neither encourage, nor use derogatory or triggering terms in an antagonizing manner. But when used in an explanation or in a context that is nondiscriminatory, I'm going to use the word faggot if it is apt. I won't prance around the bushes or walk a eggshells, I'll just do it until people can start accepting it as an innocent word. After all, I'm not a f...eeble hearted weekend warrior.


    On a different note, Miles has excellent taste in movies.

      agree, people have been encouraged to have thinner and thinner skin in modern times; I still don't understand why there are people who think that the N-word needs to be removed from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, it's a story that was written and takes place in the Jim Crow era Deep South, of course everybody is calling the blacks 'Niggers', even Hucklberry Finn himself, and he don't mean nothin' by it, it's just what you call a dark skinned man and taht's that. also Nigger Tom is the coolest, greatest, most awesome man who ever lived(or at least that Huck ever met within the story), and part of what makes that the case is that he is a Nigger livin' in the Jim Crow Era South, and to take that away hurts the character. Mark Twain wasn't a racist, in fact he was quite the opposite, and he was a master with words, so leave them well alone.

    The Mortal Kombat movie discussion was cool.  The sandwich fight was hilarious.- Miles,I had no idea that eating subs from Jersey Mike's made you feel that way.  (I'm not from TX, so I know nothing of Thundercloud Subs)  The trigger, social desensitization discussion  & "Jermy Fartz"  Camp Camp episode clarification story with added emphasis was really good.  Nerves were struck,  A little too preachy for me considering what I've seen and heard on BC.  Hey, some people consider a potty mouth to be a sign of weakness, and to others it doesn't rub them the wrong way.. While it might feel good to say what you thinking, and get it off your chest.  The rest of the world isn't going to be your friend and play nice.  Why are there people who want others to go against the norm and become the "perfect" role model to follow? ( Not a Louie c.k fan in the slightest, but he does make a point)  It's not like discussion like this haven't been brought up before.  Controversial subjects always get people talking.  Could it be considered that the same patrons for his act are afraid to see their lives through one of many different perspectives?  Perhaps, wisdom is telling us even though the world is scary at times and f'd up in some areas that can make you feel defeated at times.  We've all felt like it's not worth the time to get out bed or something along those lines. We will be critiqued for targeting a single person or group using superficial reason or another as ammunition.  And why shouldn't we be?  If in fact we aren't speaking to be understood from the jump.  Now what if I were to choose to support my knowledge base from a hypothetical standpoint leaving the answers open to interpretation.  If I don't see eye to eye with your train of thought in a particular matter am I wrong for feeling offended??      


      I'm with Miles on this one, when did we reach a point in society where it's okay to say nearly anything in public or in our smaller social circles to just about anyone regardless of upbringing, tradition, etc?    Should those on the receiving end of my comments feel offended?  Should I feel justified for thinking or saying something that gets a lot of people riled up?   There are some countries where you don't get a fraction of space to say or express yourself as openly as others might be led to believe.  Due to the fact that we're human beings here on Earth.  Even as adults we're privy to mess up, act in selfishly hypocritical ways,  be judgmental, take on narcissistic tones and the like.  (Oh, the humanity)  None of us are as perfect as angels.   However, we somehow can strive to rise above it all amidst grievances, concerns, flaws and misunderstandings, to patch each ourselves and those in need when we're at out lowest points.   The scale differs but the hope we want to see remains the same.  That is unless we're actually monsters, ghosts or aliens.   Kyle,  you give ghosts way too much power, man..


     How can a disembodied apparition injure me or cause immediate death?  Is a horrifying ghost as strong as gale force winds, or even a paper cut?  Can books randomly fall off a kitchen table,  counter, ,desk, shelf or bed.  What about inanimate objects?  Do they pull and spin in the hands of the unknown?   What kind of Sub sandwich shop would a ghost haunt?  Do they add American Cheese, Provalone,turkey, ham Swiss and black olives in between cold soggy bread?  Would they not  hold the onions, mushrooms or mayo just to mess with you? :)  Thanks for the food for thought guys..

    The harsh reality is that no matter how hard you try there will always be someone out there who will find something you say or do offensive. Writing and telling jokes on offensive topics is a double-edged sword, it all depends on how the viewer interprets the subject or context of the joke. You Entertain for a living and enjoy making people laugh and smile. Most of your viewers are aware that your intentions are pure. Having a sense of humor and laughing, at least for me, is a way of healing and reducing stress. Like you said, "Words carry weight," it can make something that was once hurtful seem smaller and maybe even help a person become stronger. You never know what someone is going through in life, everyone has something they are struggling with. You can't cater to everyone's needs, it's impossible. We as the viewer also have a responsibility to not take things so personally, its part of growing up. Whining about being offended by something doesn't solve anything, it just makes things worse. If you get offended by a word, joke or action you should talk to someone, a friend, family member or seek counseling. It's okay if you get offended once in a while, it's natural, the problem is how you deal with those feelings. I say Fuck it! Laugh, live your life and worry about more important things, like if Thunder Cloud really is better than Jersey Mikes. ;)

    To me you can say EVERYTHING, as long as you pay attention.

    Banning or avoiding a single word completely is dumb and counter-produtcive (this culture is what generated the super offensive, unfunny and intentionally "triggering" kind of black humour), but is also important to understand (as Miles said) that words carry weight. So, as with erevything, what matters is balance. You can talk about any topic and use every word as long as you try to put yourselves in the shoes of the people that might get offended and you state your intent.

    i highly disagree with the whole ''some words just arent okay to say'' whatever its fag or nigger or whatever it all depends on how you use the word if its used in a hatefull way then sure fuck that person but if its just a friendly joke or another casual way i dont see how that could possibly be a problem im gay i'll gladly joke about being a fag i have absolutely nothing against black people so i never say nigger in a hatefull or discriminating way yet i know that plenty of people are offended by that if hearing a certain word at all during your day can ruin your whole day then you seriously have issues you need to deal with because i wont stop using a word because its offend you and neither will the world its not mine nor anyone elses responsibility besides making sure to never ever offend anyone is litteraly impossible this may sound harsh but people just have to deal with it me saying any of those words has litteraly no effect on the quality of life of anyone reading this especially since you dont know me or otherwise deal with me on a daily basis yet people will be offended... what im trying to say is that expecting the world to adapt and cater to your every whim is just unrealistic and never going to happen ergo you will have to learn to just live with it

    I can't think of a single word that would ruin my day, but that's just at this time.

    For example: If a dog I loved died, people talking about their dogs or sharing completely inoffensive puppy pictures around me at that time would mess me up.

    But that's my problem to deal with. I can't and won't expect others to tiptoe around the topic just for me. (Although friends would usually be aware and careful of that without asking, and that's just really cool of them.)


    At the end of the day I just need to step away from such things until I'm ready to face it again.

    I think that's what people's biggest problem is these days. The inability to step away from it all. When everything on twitter or what-have-you is triggering and you keep going back for more without any kind of cool down period or moment to collect yourself.


    I also think it's nonsense when people get offended over ANY topic being used for comedy. Not just because laughing at an issue and even yourself can be greatly beneficial to some who are dealing with a tragic event. But because it lightens up topics that are normally difficult to broach.

    An example here; in Australia there's been times when people have been outraged about domestic abuse jokes. The topic however is often so dark that people avoid talking about it altogether as it'll kill any positive mood in the room and end conversations faster than a dead dog. (See, I got passed it.)

    Start with a joke and you can crack the ice around the topic. While people may seem to be making fun of the topic at first, they will be more open to talking about it in earnest when the mood has lifted and the eggshells they otherwise would have been walking on have been brushed away.

    I think part of the problem is that the word trigger has changed it's meaning. I both like and hate how triggers are being normalized. Personal, personal story-I was molested by my cousin for a few years. I have never told anyone in my family. For me, I hate real life people using the word "daddy" and "baby" (especially "baby girl") because of this experience. (Weirdly, totally fine if it's fiction.) But the problem becomes when I try to tell others to not use those words when talking to me. They always want to argue their right to talk that way to me that way. To me, if I tell you using that word is uncomfortable and that i wish you wouldn't say it around me, that's all I should have to say to you without having to go into my tragic backstory. This is why I like the normalization of triggers-it makes it ok for people like me to ask for boundaries concerning that. 


    But the word has changed it's meaning, slightly. A lot of people make "trigger" out to be just stuff that makes them uncomfortable, with a wide meaning for what that feeling means. Both people who use the word seriously and those that make fun of the word can make it tough to be taken seriously when asking for boundaries. (Those people I mentioned who above who want to argue with me? A lot go straight for "lol, what are you triggered? Special snowflake can't handle words, lol")


    On the other hand, I think there's a nice middle ground that can be reached. Should the law students have to be tested on the rape/sexual abuse laws? Absolutely. But I totally think a warning should be given first, so it gives people who are triggered by stuff like that a chance to brace themselves. To me, it's more of the unexpectedness of the words that get me than the actually words themselves. I can handle the words-I don't like it but I can handle it-but give me a chance to prepare first.

    I was watching some Equals Three videos a month ago and I was amazed how many transgender jokes there were just in one episode. That was like 2010 when transgender people were just some other group in the periphery of society and now almost everyone knows someone who is, and it's just not okay to make jokes now.

    So I'm gonna step on a soapbox for a moment here and I'm also gonna go ahead and apologize. Some people are fucking babies who can't accept that other people or things are out there that would in any way potentially hurt or cause distress to them. According to these people, no one should ever say anything that could in any way, shape or form be taken as a negative or hurtful way. I'm all for the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would have them treat you. But I also realize that there are people out there who are just going to say shit. Sometimes they don't mean it to be hurtful to you because they don't know and sometimes they absolutely mean it to be hurtful because they are asshole. I also know that words do have the power to hurt, especially if you get caught unaware or you just don't understand why this person is saying these things to you. But goddammit people, grow the fuck up. The world is not a happy-go-lucky place were everyone and everything is nice all the time; it's just not and it's probably never going to be. As such, you will have to deal with some unpleasant things and that's what you have to do, you deal with it. You suck it up and get on with your life. You don't whine and complain like a child that this person said something that hurt your feelings. I've probably offended some people already and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry that the words you are reading on a screen that are being written by someone who you probably don't know and will never meet have affected you such a level that they have offended you (that was irony by the way, not sarcasm). But they are just words, letters put together to make something greater than themselves. Words have meaning and that meaning is dependent on you and they person writing those words, like Miles said. If you chose to take offense, that's your choice especially if no offense was meant. You could just as easily chose not to be offended and ignore my words all together: such a novel idea. What you shouldn't do is let these words rule your life, which is what you are doing every time you basically refuse to acknowledge them as a part of life that exist. Even though you don't want them to be there, they are still there and people are going to say them. So it falls on you, as an individual, to decide that you aren't going to take offense. That you aren't going to let these words control you and have power over you. That way when you see those words, you can look at them and say: Yes, that word has a negative connotation for me but I'm not going to let it ruin my day. Because you are stronger that some stupid word. Again I apologize and hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    At first, I didn't think much of the whole trigger warning thing.  I thought at times (in the description for fanfics or whatever) what was listed as a "trigger" was a bit over done. But whatever people have their issues and a warning doesn't hurt me any. Then I mostly just glossed over them because I didn't think pertained to me. I'll admit I was mentally snide towards people who read fanfiction and demanded trigger warning for everything. Or people complaining about how movies/tv shows didn't come with them. 

    When I read a book called Nefertiti's Heart. It was free so I didn't bother looking at the reviews. In this book, the main protagonist was sexually abused when she was younger. I'm not going into details it was horrible and she cannot bear to be touched. She tells her "love interest" (who she has known for maybe an hour) about her past. He proceeds to stalk her around the room that they are in as she panics. The author goes into great detail on how she feels like a trapped animal. 
    I did not read further never had I read anything so terrible. I wished I had checked the reviews first. This experience is difficult to write about. I  don't want to limit what other people do. Instead of complaining about (for example) Funhaus adoration of pedophile jokes I simply stop watching their content. I filter what movies or Tv shows I watch.  After that terrible book, I realized that I had already been filtering and watching for triggers I had just not realized it.
    I don't know what it feels to have a single word drag you down feels like. But I do know what it feels like to have things take you back to very painful places. 
    This is what I believe:
    For what ever kind of media that bothers you don't force your issues on other people limiting what they can/can't do. Instead, be a sieve and strain out what you can't/won't handle. Be prepared for the things that catch you by surprise. 
    Sorry, this is rambling and not very good. I'm not good with words.

    I am a part of the LGBTQ community and I didn't see much wrong with the camp camp episode. They didn't actually use it and were using other characters reactions to show how bad that word is and how much of a big deal it would have been to use it. I took away from it a lot of what Miles kind of intended. I know I may be someone who isn't as concerned about that word as others, but that episode did a good job of getting the message across that it is bad to use that kind of language.

    On the light note through the Words conversation, I totally understand Kyle's word problem with hyperbole and mispronouncing it. I have that same problem with epitome. I have to remind myself it's pronounced "Ee-pit-toe-mi" and not "Eh-pit-tome."

    So yes, some words can be hard to hear, really hard to hear if they are use at or about you. But I never let that put me down for a whole day. One, because that gives that person power over me and fuck that. Two, more then likely I will never see that person again because I spend my time with those who either care enough not to say those words or I can tell them why I wish they would not. 


    I didn't know there was any trouble with the camp camp ep. because I never took the joke like that. The way I took it was, "how could you not think before you said that, no one can be this naive?" It was a funny moment to me. 


    At the end of the day balance is everything. Try to inform or hang out with good people, don't let others drag you down, and remember it's ok to laugh.


    P.s.


    Fire House subs, really guys? They gave me food poisoning watch out for them.
