I'll be damned if a homosexual is going to take a word that pre-exists them out of my vocabulary.

I don't get it though, it's okay to call someone a woman's vagina, but not a ***? This is why PC people are tools, cause they make little sense and are usually contradictory.

I thought he called him a dyke.

In serious, one of my biggest peeves about the UFC and Dana wanting to go mainstream is the language that the fighters and the president of the company use. While his target market is males 18-34 he still needs to act like a professional. I'd like to see Roger Goodell run the UFC for a while, whip the athletes, employees, commentators etc., into shape.

pre-exist them? i didnt know the word ***got dated back thousands of years ago or were gays 'invented' in the 1900's or something?

and how is a womans vagina the same as calling someone a ***? *** is a derogitive name for a gay person and a vagina is a body part.

I might catch some flak for this, but so be it.

Homosexuality, regardless of what anyone says, is not normal. People always make fun of other's abnormalities whether they be physical, psychological or social. That might not be fair and it might not be kind, but the world is a harsh place. If you're part of the 3-5% of the world's population that enjoys partaking in same sex relationships, then prepare to be ridiculed.

Suck it up! (no pun intended)

Personally the act of homosexuality disgusts me, but that doesn't change my objective thinking that homosexuals cannot live out a life in which they can live happily. The part I disagree on is when they and the people that support them try to impose their beliefs on me.

The issue here seems to be intolerant guys like you. The UFC was perfectly fine with it.

It should stop in the octagon, where Jorge has a good chance to responce to all the trash.

This is fighting/entertainment not politics. There is no need for sensetive intolerant groups to jump fighters trash talk. What, did he say FAT? Im fat and this don't belong in 2011 there must be consequenses cus I feel hurt. UFC should react and sue.

Shouldn't sayings such as fat also be banned? Fat people are also victims to discrimination and calling someone fat/"out of shape" is surley degrading and offensive to fat people watching. The peoblem with a bunch of discrimination laws are that isn't everyone a part of some group making everything a hate speech? Or are people like you to decide what is and who can be discriminated? Ofc people should have some decency in the way they talk but its simply silly to complain over Bisping calling a father of four gay and making that to some hatecrime.

Indeed it was and ***gots or bundles of sticks were thrown onto fires where witches were tied up to burn. Actual homosexuals were also thrown on the fire, but they were not worth the time to tie up. Therefore they were thrown on the fire like ***gots (bundles of sticks). Hence the two becoming synonymous with one another.
