Many suggested what Pillar said was wrong - only to go on an call the social media SJW's "snowflakes"....either some think snowflake is a perfectly acceptable derogatory term, or they are extremely hypocritical. I'm curious if people think a suspension would have been necessary had he called him a cocksucker instead of a faggot. What if he called him a mother fucker? I just honestly don't understand how people draw lines on this matter.

    You suggested that through your work, you've been responsible for telling staff that the work retard (and/or faggot - I couldn't tell) is not acceptable and that there will be repercussions if they use them. I'm sure the generally policy is don't use derogatory terms and don't be a dick or you'll get in trouble - however, I do find that quite subjective. Would you punish someone who called someone a hooligan? What if they recited a redneck joke at work?

    I thought maybe you'd have some good insight, but you'd rather put me down than engage it seems. Typical yankee 'merican.

    Dude, c'mon its all about context. A black person can call another a n*****, but tar and feather any white person using the word. It's not hard.

    I know white guys that do the same thing with the brothers, it's whether you're a true racist, really, or simply don't know them, that shit's all shady, too. I won't do that to my own cousins, but it's fucked when I hear it used, in different scenarios, it's hard to differentiate.

    If you think it's about context than we aren't talking about pillar. Heat of the moment he blurts it out without thinking. It wasn't premeditated.
