Once again

Gay jokes aren't funny.

It might make you think you're not homophobic, but the fact is that it just proves the opposite. Stop it. It's gross.

I think you are overreacting.

If you really want it to stop, you should suggest it to be against the MBN rules, so post a serious suggestion in 'Site and Forum' forum.

I think neither.
Thinking that homosexuality jokes equal homophobia is like thinking...spider jokes equal arachnophobia.
So....what makes homosexuality different?
Maybe that's where the fear is.

I hope you're not refering to the "Also, cocks." thing.
I think it deserves the "sentence of the year" title.


And that's really a great idea, lbawinowns.
Let's ban gay jokes....yes.... -_-

Perhaps a sub-forum for political threads and gay jokes?

I think you misread what I said.

I said that if he think people should stop with gay jokes, the only way of enforcing it would be with a rule. A suggestion like that that's not well written is whining.

Heh, controversial topics like that come to the every day speech through jokes, when we joke of ourselves, acting like we're homosexual, we start to feel comfortable with the topic and treat the sexuality theme as something normal. Wich is good, gay jokes in the form in wich they appear on this forum, are the healthy type, we act like we're gay, but do not make fun of gay people, simple. Wich makes the sexuality topic an open one.

Jokes like that are healthy. I have no idea why would someone feel uncomfortable with them, I'm cereal.

Ok, not homophobic - homophobicphobic. The fear of homophobia. That's the one.

LBAWin oWnZ, I'm just expressing my opinion. Not forcing anybody. This thread is just as healthy as those jokes.

I feel uncomfortable with them because I don't enjoy reading about MBN members stroking each other penises. Does that make me homosexual or homophobic?

And you wouldn't faint hearing about a male MBN member stroking a female MBN member's vagina? Is the problem homosexuality or just sexuality?

Where is Axx when I need him, to lovingly stroke my cock and add the necessary panache to this thread?

sexjokes are plainly not funny. But they are if they have a bit more subtility to them.

like mine.
