  •  When "fag" is a spontaneous slur, (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    it's offensive, period. Whether the speaker is pro-gay rights, or has gay friends, or does benefits for gay causes is beside the point. There's no excuse for it. If something that fucked-up slips out, you should apologize on the spot. Whether or not you've been caught on camera.

    People are responsible for what they say, even in heated moments. And while spontaneous slurs may be inadvertent, they never appear out of nowhere.
