38. That does it.
I'm gay. The poster you are referring to in no way trivialized the "epithet" (you need to look that word up, by the way).

Just because someone does not use the words "fag", "queer", "poofter", "fruit", or whatever else to denigrate gays does not mean they are not a homophobe, because homophobia takes many different forms- refusing to rent to us, firing us for being gay, etc.

Let me say it again. The poster you are replying to in no way trivialized the "epithet" (which, again, is a word you need to look up before you use it again).

I would also submit that the lady doth protest overmuch.
