@Zombie Cage Fighter: I agree with you in virtually everything you've said however it should be noted that if there's a degree of anger in usage of any pejorative term, then that usage is negative. You're absolutely right - no angry pinheaded homosexuals (to the best of my knowledge) have ever said "let's beat the fuck out of that breeder," but they certainly have used the term with derision and disdain for their target. The target is no longer seen as human worthy of the same rights you would expect for yourself, but as sub-human. In other words, the target is not seen as applicable for the golden rule - do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Others could counter this with "cowboy the fuck up," "you need to develop a thicker skin," and "don't whine so much," but still, I agree with you. In Rogan's defense, there's lots of things he is happy to talk about that have social consequences, He's a big advocate for recreational use of marijuana as well as other drugs, and that doesn't sit well with some. He reduces Middle Eastern terrorists to "you believe the crazy shit." Anyone who uses pejorative terms (even if they feel they're entitled to do so) is ignorant of the social significance of those terms. Now it can get even more sensitive. When a comedian like Russell Peters goes on about Indian people, is he being racist? He's not saying "dirty Paki bastards," but what he is saying could be misconstrued as being offensive. Was "Blazing Saddles" offensively racist, or did it make fun of racism?

Joe Rogan's opinion of Tomas Rios is his opinion. If he has the resources to spread his opinion to others, he's free to do so. Personally, I think Tomas Rios is a weak, ignorant piece of shit, and it offends me deeply that shithead gets paid to be a fucking moron. I would love to see him and other pretend journalists utterly ruined. Would I call him a faggot? Probably not. Would I call him a cock-sucker? Possibly.

@ SB:
I'll try to keep this somewhat brief, because it's pretty clear that most people don't care about the topic.

In my opinion, some killjoy political correctness trend has not arbitrarily outlawed the term. The difference between a term like "breeder" and a term like "faggot" is that a bunch of angry homosexuals have never said, "Let's go kill this fucking breeder" and then drug a heterosexual behind a truck to death. I mean, something like that may have happened, but I doubt it. Both words are certainly prejudicial, but in social reality they aren't equally significant. Again in my opinion, public opinion is correct to consider the word "faggot" to be in poor taste, in the same sense that it is in poor taste to use words like "nigger" and "kike". When groups of people start getting murdered, the prejudicial phrases used to describe those groups become distasteful.

Like I said before, I don't think Rogan hates homosexuals. I just think he likes his juvenline phrases; he has more or less crafted much of his comedy from glorifying the juvenile, which plenty of funny comics do (Bill Hicks, Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, etc.). But when Rogan uses the word "faggot" in a flat-out "fuck you you weak piece of shit"-context on a semi-public forum, and then launches into an extended monologue about how the term actually shouldn't be considered offensive, I can't help but think he's being willfully ignorant of the social significance that language has.

Perjorative terms have relative significance; they're as offensive as they're perceived to be. If you don't think a term is offensive, then you probably can't be convinced otherwise. I don't really give a shit.

Amen to that SB. The only boxing match I'm interested in seeing is Manny kicking the shit out of Mayweather...
Seoul Brother- November 27, 2010 at 6:01 pm
And can we please focus on more important issues like what a retarded little faggot Floyd Mayweather, jr. really is?
rlh61- November 27, 2010 at 5:42 pm
Rogan's comments about us (in general) raising weaklings and pussies is 100% on the money! Hell, my dad has been saying that about me for years...

And the worst thing is that if somebody is going to act "retarded," it doesn't mean that they're being picked on because they're literally retarded. That would be unfathomably cruel. It's just a perversion of language defined in one manner applied to something else. If Gus Johnson is going to say retarded shit, then he's acting retarded. I've called people retarded, and parents of special needs kids got offended, so I apologized straight away for my poor choice of words.

If comedians like Louis C.K., Joe Rogan, and Robert Schimmel (R.I.P.) are going to make gay jokes, they sure as shit aren't picking on someone because of whom they chose to love. That would be cruel. You don't have to listen to them. You can do something else. but if the term "breeder" is being used to straight people and you don't protest that, or if you don't protest when the term "guido" is used even if Matt Serra and Phil Baroni aren't offended by that term, then in my mind, you're a hypocritical fag.

^ damm straight dazed, for a group of people who stick things up their asses for pleasure, they sure do do get butthurt over some words pretty easy

If you can take a dick, you should be able to take a joke, or a word that is.

@Zombie Cage Fighter: I agree with you in principle, but Joe Rogan nailed it on the fucking head when he cited the example of the derogatory term "breeder." It doesn't matter if you've never used it or heard it. It exists and it is used in EXACT same context as a straight person might use the term "faggot." There's lots of straight people that would never think of using the term faggot to LGBT people, because it is morally reprehensible to them. Now if an LGBT person EVER used the term "breeder" to a straight person, it's just as bad as if that straight person called them a "faggot." I know lots of people that would never use either term, but the problem exists, and the LGBT community has no grounds whatsoever if they're not going to oppose use of derogatory terms like "breeder" as vehemently as "faggot." You're wrong, buddy - it IS because of "some killjoy political correctness trend," and I'll go even say that it's hypocritical.

And I don't know where you've been for the past 10 years. Joe Rogan has been making jokes about homosexuals for as long as he's been recording albums. Seriously dude - listen to the opening of his 2000 album "I'm Gonna Be Dead Someday" and tell me that he's not making a gay joke (about jocks even!). It's been said before about Joe Rogan, and I'll say it again - he's not family friendly, and he's NEVER been family friendly. He's funny as Hell, intelligent, and insightful. He is one of the best color commentators in sports PERIOD.He knows his shit, which is a lot more than I can say for douchebags like Gus Johnson and Tomas Rios.

I don't think Rogan hates gay people, but using the term "faggot" to demean someone publicly does have an undeniably homophobic ring to it, and it makes him seem more like a 13-year-old than an intelligent adult.

There's a reason why people who want to be taken seriously don't publicly throw around the word "faggot" as a perjorative term, and (despite what Rogan or others may argue) it isn't because some killjoy political correctness trend has arbitrarily outlawed the term.
