DimTwits Update #2- June 1, 2011

It doesn't matter whether you are gay or do not hate gay people- using the word "fag" or "gay" in a demeaning way portrays a homophobic attitude.  It is hurtful to gay people as well as the LGBT civil rights movement.  It says that being gay is a negative or undesirable attribute.  It also says you don't care about the feelings of gay people.  

Because of its negative consequences, it is the duty of every LGBT person and ally to call people out when they say "that's gay" or "you're a fag" in public or even in private. GLUEamerica chose Twitter as an outlet to change people's minds and reveal that homophobia (even unconscious homophobia) still exists.  Always remember that posting something on Twitter is the same thing as saying it on the street in public with anyone in hearing distance.  Ask yourself whether you'd feel "bad" or "weird" if you said "that's gay" or "you're a faggot" in public around or to a gay person.  If so, don't Tweet it or say it.  If not, you have a lot of learning to do.

GLUEtwitter1: @GLUEamerica @em_sher Does using the hashtag #fags accomplish anything besides display your ignorance? Grow up and think before you speak.
DimTwit1:@em_sher @GLUEamerica thought about that one long and hard.. After viewing your website I can clearly see why that showed up on your homefeed and for the record, #fags can also mean idiot boys who think they are cooler than they are, not guys who like guys #getoverit
GLUEtwitter1: @GLUEamerica @em_sher It doesn't matter how you use #fags. It is always hurtful and inciting. Would you scream fags in public?
DimTwit1: @em_sher @GLUEamerica Stop looking for reasons to play victim. I'm sure you've called someone a bitch before and you don't see me crying about it
GLUEtwitter1: @em_sher Is it really that difficult to not call someone a fag? Honestly?

DimTwit1: @em_sher @GLUEamerica the more you comment on me saying fags the more I'm going to say fags. Go bug someone who actually hates fags
GLUEtwitter1: @GLUEamerica RT @so_amyzing @em_sher when you use the word fag to demean someone, you are saying that being gay is a negative attribute. WHICH IT IS NOT.
DimTwit1: @em_sher @GLUEamerica when you harass and push your views on people who don't want them, you are probably going to receive negative feedback
GLUEtwitter1: @GLUEamerica @em_sher So you WANT to call people faggots? The view I'm trying to press on you is not saying fag. But I'm the bad guy? Seriously? Ha.




DimTwit2:@iDuff_ Dominican men are fags #yesisaidit
GLUEtwitter2: @GLUEamerica @iDuff_ Why do you have to use the word "fag" like that? Words hurt people. Grow up and think before you speak.
DimTwit2: @iDuff_ @GLUEamerica pay my bills or suck my dick
