The TFA calls the sign "homophobic" ... is that really correct? Offensive and insensitive? Sure, absolutely. But, homophobic?

I don't think that word means what people think it means.

It's funny that the author thinks having a reputation for being homophobic is somehow a bad thing in Alabama.

They're keeping it real.
And they're FABULOUS.

Using it as an insult is bad. I highly doubt these hillbillies meant it as a compliment.

No its not, south park told me so.

The term gay isn't as offensive to gays as they think, sexual orientation never factors into the phrase most of the time and especially with kids.

Oh and subby along with most of you need a map, they aren't hillbillies since that usually means a hill is around.

The phrase now usually means effeminate not really hatred of a sexual partner, but people will always jump to conclusions.

Two Greek roots, right? Homoui, "sameness." And phobos, "fear or dislike." So . . . Fear of the same-old same-old?

Seriously? This counts as journalism? If the other team's color was purple; that's pretty gay.
 
2012-09-06 10:20:38 PM
It's funny because being a prejudiced asshole is OK if it's based on where someone lives and not their opinion about penises.
 
2012-09-06 10:21:53 PM
so farking tards will be farking tards. and seriously, you're attacking a color choice? wait the students were judging a fashion choice? isn't that... after all, who cares about male fashion again?

Of course all the controversy could have been avoided if they had consulted George and Jerry about a second banner.

I like the part where the author takes offense to a sign that is bigoted and then goes on to call an entire high school homophobic.

What in the hell is the world coming to? You can't make a joke anymore without the damned gay nazis coming after you and hitting you over the head with their political correctness. You expect this kind of happy horse manure up in Chicago or north Virginia or some other dickwad assed hellhole where they have allowed the government to take away their freedom of expression---but in Mobile, Alabama?

Well shes gay, so I guess not........

Oh no, I dont think you get it, this makes the browns fans entire year, I expect some signs to be barred from the stadium come game time, their hatred is so great that if Lebron walked up and down the tailgating sections with a "F*ck Modell" on the front and "Even Hell hates this guy" on the back they would cheer him on. This is deep seated hate and they think hes worse than hitler.

Thats been going on for 3 weeks now, Im wondering when they are going to start paying the HS players for this, since most of them will never make it to the next level yet espn makes money off the deal.........

Agreed and was the first thing I thought of. Really? Can't people understand that words evolve into something else over time? Yes people, they sure do. Just like the F**K.

Yes, because making calling people stereotypical names for calling other people stereotypical names is intelligent. You probably don't see the irony here.
 
2012-09-07 05:59:09 AM
wait, if you televise high school students watching HIGH SCHOOL football, some of the fans in the stands might be immature?

who knew?
 
2012-09-07 06:12:15 AM
Keep up the good fight. Someday our grand-kids will read in school about how in the 201-'s the gay community had to deal with such atrocities as high school kids in Bum-Farked deep south calling the color purple gay and all the emotional baggage that goes along with such a struggle. But for such brave crusaders as the writer of TFA taking a stand and saying enough is enough during our time blatant discrimination and hate such as this may continue to contaminate the future with bigotry, but hopefully their struggle will stand as a beacon of light shining on how wrong this truly is. Keep up the good fight and surely when the U.S.A. comes to terms with how it allowed such brutal treatment as this a monument will be built in Washington DC in these brave souls honor.

Hillbillies are from Appalachia and the Ozarks, subby. This is from southern Alabama. Completely different breed of white trash.

Daphne High? Of course their colour is purple.

Velma High would have orange, Fred High blue and white, and Shaggy High would be far too shaggy and high to choose one.

No because making fun if supposed Hicks is fun and making fun of tha gheys is bad! Haven't you learned nuthin'?

Never mind that one of those "hicks" invented the phone system most sip protocols are based off of, they sure is stupid those hicks. He's laughing all the way to the bank on his ATV.

There has been no official punishment for the Spanish Fort fans who brought in the sign, or those pictured on national television laughing at it.

Punishing the kids who held it up, yeah that might happen. But wtf is this guy smoking thinking people who laughed at it are going to get busted.

The moral of this story is the fark moderators are fine with headlines using racist terms against whites,
just don't make a headline calling out a racist black person.


And don't forget to pay your $5 a month.

Gotcha.

Playground crap that immature little kids yell at each other. So we can deduce that these are immature little kids.

Really no different than when I was living in Cincinnati and the little black kids in my apartment complex would pick on each other screaming, "You white, nubian, you white!"

That said, grow up a little. I grew up country and Baptist and if I had been party to something as such my mother would have not been pleased.
