Yes, I did generalize a bit in the sake of speed, I don't think that dark humor is bad, just certain topics are always in bad taste. This is something that I wanted to get at though:

I really hate the movement towards segregation of thought/words that so many seem inclined towards (rather hypocritically might I add). It is rather contrary to a goal of race relations and such. I've said this before about the word "faggot." I sort of fear it may become a word only okay for gays to use. As much as I hate being called a faggot, I think the idea that only certain individuals may use the word is ridiculous. Instead of getting to the bottom of the problem, which is hate and discrimination in the form of stereotypes we merely make it taboo to use the term. Either everyone should be able to use a term, or no one, simple as that. I thought he was out of line, and I called him out on it.
