Faggot

swearsJerry Lewis is still doing that Labor Day telethon thing and yesterday he slipped and uttered the word "faggot". We all remember what befell Isaiah Washington of "Grey's Anatomy" after he used the same expression.

I don't think I've ever used the word, but I remember shit hitting the fan back in grade 7 because of this other f-word. The assignment was to choose a song and play it for the class. We had to discuss the song meaning and analyze the lyrics. Marc S. chose the most excellent Dire Straits song "Money For Nothing", and you can probably guess where this is going.

"Money For Nothing" has the word faggot in the lyrics not once, not twice but three times. Mr. I flipped his lid and Marc got a verbal lashing in front of the entire class. This same project got Kris in trouble as well as he chose the Beastie Boys' "Paul Revere". Mr. I didn't particularly care for that rap fad...

Marc, this one is for you. That little faggot he's a millionaire.

Remember he is 81 yrs old & saying things out of context may be the norm at that age - years ago if the phrase was said nothing would have been questioned.
Don't forget Jerry puts his heart & soul into the MDA & has raised MILLIONS of $ & he said a few years ago he wants to see a cure before he dies.
God bless him.
He has to be forgiven & has already apologized.

Yeah man he is 81 years old.

I can safely say that I barely use that word as an abusive weapon. Somehow the local language versions of it seems more potent is abusing someone who is abusing you! But rarely do I use it.

Don't forget, George W. Bush invests millions into Africa, so if he ignored Black people in New Orleans don't worry because years ago nothing would have been questioned.
