So what if I said I was a really fat gay guy. So should I be offended by the comments on this subject all the time? I think the answer is no, as long as it's in the right forum. Where is the line?

I guess I stand alone on our right to free speech in a designated area...

i am a bit torn. we can make fun of grimmace crennels genetic eating problem, tom brady's inherent homosexuality, but sproles st st stuttering problem is off limits?

i did defend sproles against steelerfans in the nfl forum, and this thread was in no way intended to take cheap personal shots against a player i happen to think will be a threat next sunday, but still....

i hope i can still call sproles "webster" despite him being born vertically challenged.

You can talk trash in other ways than making fun of a guy the way he talks with cameras in mics in his face because he has a speech problem.

But it's okay to make fun of a fat guy? Or someone's sexuality? Granted some things offend me, but when I come into an area where those things happen, like the blast furnace, comedy club, a movie theater, am I not choosing to be there. So shouldn't I expect some level of juvenile behavior?

Maybe he was just nervous. Maybe his teammates should have told the reporter to go away since there teammate has a speech problem. Where do we draw the line? And what good is a disclaimer if someone can read something and then complain about it? Is it our fault they chose to ignore the warnings. Like a "R" rating or "Mature Audiences Only" banners?

Being fat and sexuality problems are things that you can change. Sproles can't help is speech problem. He's had it since he was 4.

So are you going to demand your money back at the theater when that happens? Are you going to heckle Eddie Murphy for making fun of midgets? Probably not, cause you chose to be there. You chose to pay for that movie ticket.

It's a matter of principle. So I won't drop it. It's about the Pot calling the kettle black. It's a matter of someone's opinion. It's what makes our country different from all the others.
