    That's the way we do it in Toronto.
    That's a bit light, don't you think?

    A more appropriate punishment would be for him to go door to door to every openly gay man in the GTA and apologize. Tears rolling down his cheeks while doing it is optional, but preferable.

    Jays could make a reality show out of this.

    Dear god with the political correctness around here. I thought this forum somewhat of a refuge from this.

    If the gay agenda has so seriously infected society that one slur against them is enough to turn a team's fanbase against one of their MVP-ceiling major league players, then I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

    Now I know what some people are talking about when they mention the lack of loyalty in today's youth. A person can prove themselves time after time after time again, but one little slip up and they are excommunicated forever. Bunch of useless virtue signaling self important assholes who need to get over themselves. That's what has infected the youth of today.

    Can't you understand how incredibly insulting it is to the gay community that Pillar used that word in a totally non-gay manner in reference to a straight, married man? He's sending gay rights back decades you pig!

If he called him a "motherfucker" instead would that express offense to all the mothers in the world? If Motte is an out of the closet homosexual, then it would be different. Society is slowly changing for the better where people are starting to use these types of slurs less and less, but it takes time. Pillar grew up in a society where that word was used in general terms. I'm pretty certain he would never use that term against someone who he knows is openly gay. I don't know Pillar personally, but from what i've seen and heard while he's been here and from the media, he sounds like a decent respectful person. He's nowhere near douchbag levels, like Escobar. If what he said was said in a non impulsive situation, then that would also be different.

    To actually be serious about trading one of our best players who is having a career year because of this is fucking mind boggling. Also calling him a cancer in the clubhouse, like any of us would know? This is beyond frustrating.
    My god, it's so easy that I actually give sir_bjay negative points for reaching for this low hanging fruit.

    P.S you are intellectually different for taking NJH's bait. I won't apologize for calling you intellectually different.
    Whoa whoa. I've corrected your post which was marred with slurs towards differently minded people. Please apologize and grovel for forgiveness.

    You're lucky we live in a corrupt society where the people's will has no bearing or I'd use my head mod powers to give YOU a two day suspension. Please try to be more careful with your language in the future.

    Just be glad you don't frequent the politics thread. They are extremely triggered by things like the colour of Trump's morning shit.

    Pillar will pay homage to the film Brokeback Mountain by wearing this for the rest of the season

    I divorced one several years ago. I honestly hate the word...and I got tired of people using it as bait. I know how much you love your "freedom of BJMB speech" so I edited you only, just for payback for calling me an authoritarian pussy. No one ever said I was a good mod.

    So your payback was to prove my point.

    You know I like you Hurl, but your uppity stance on uncomfortable words is so obnoxious.
