Well, having read chockstone on a regular basis for several years, this will be my last visit. [cue einstein comments about shutting the door on the way out]

When pushed to the limit, eg. by the revolting Phil, a few of you gritted your teeth, and said the right thing. But on a casual "day to day" basis, none of you, including the moderators, care enough about offensive and degrading homophobic language, to step up to the plate and oppose it.

I doubt that any of you would say "nigger" in general public conversation - even jokingly. But all of you are happy with the equally incendiary term, "fag". This is confirmed by google, which finds only two uses of "nigger" on chockstone - and 168 uses of "fag".

The people I feel sorry for, are the gay climbers reading this thread and thinking gosh, I agree, I hate the term "fag" - but who won't say anything publically, because they do not want their climbing friends to know they are gay. To those folk I say: get off your ass, grit your teeth, and start objecting to homophobic language wherever you find it. Even chockstone would change, if enough gay climbers objected.

Any gay climbers who'd like to correspond on this issue are welcome to contact me at gc dot 20 dot keen4some at spamgourmet dot com.
