    Isn't this argument rather pointless though, as offense is attached to a word by a user or a recipient, so it depends on their belief. It doesn't depend on the 'actual' word, or even the original meaning of the word.


    is the smartest post in the entire thread. I have heard the word pakeha used offensivly many times. Doesnt really matter what the original meaning is.

    Calling someone "a gay idiot" for example 20 years ago had a totally different meaning then it would today.

    Though in saying that carieann is still a twit and of course red neck fishman and his civil war appeared

    Thanks, I wondered if I was the only one who saw it that way since no one acknowledged my view.
    Either that or I did a crap job of explaining myself.
    Didn't seem like there was much critical thinking going on from the people on either side of the argument, so I was compelled to post.

    I refuse to accept the use of the word gay to describe those with sodomite and carpet-munching tendencies.

    As long as they're happy, then the title is apt.
