65. First off....I'd have to disagree.
I have yet to see people not outraged. You realize in the text though...the N words were used. No one said much of anything by that being used.

I personally I have to see people apologize for Palin unless the 16 year old thing---and in that case---the one person I did see use it- was using it sarcastically.

Another thing I think people need to be aware of is that there are N word, S word, and K word people who are in the GLBT community. You should just remind these people that they are not mutually exclusive. In many cases on this board I tend to get annoyed when people say, "Would you say the same thing if they were Black?" And I'm like....Blacks make up a good majority of the GLBT community, so I'm trying to see what the point of argument is. It's not a racial group, it's made up of many racial groups.
