If Society Tolerates The Word Faggot, Then Society Should Also Tolerate Other Racial Slurs

The word faggot or fag has been a hot button for many. For some its a filler word, being said unconsciously. For others it is said very pointedly. Those who are effected by it are of all walks of life.

I have attempted to avoid this topic because it seems insurmountable to stop the use of hateful words. African Americans, Jews, Latinos and others all have words that mean something negative. Which at some point I have heard all the excuses to use such language.
"I don't mean all of them, just the ones that act a certain way."
"It is only a joke."
"Sorry, habit."
"My parents raised me this way."
"I had a bad experience with one once."
"Everyone says it, why am I suddenly the bad guy?"
"Your being to sensitive."

I could go on and on. We all can. This isn't a new subject or a new concept.
I have not been to other countries but it seems that America is the only country that has to be superior to at least one class of people. Its like, once you get acceptance, that means you immediately began searching for a class of people you are better than.

Things don't have to be this way. Life doesn't have to be classified.

With Love
