    Providing they are not directed at players. So let loose. Foot loose.

    Just asking [and this is a serious question]: Has anyone openly been offended by slurs in game before? Because I've never actually seen it happen.

    I'm not a fan of the N-word, since I was taught to hate it growing up. I don't care much for it now as an adult though.

    Okay, so personally I just got back from a ban for posting an image in which someone was calling me a slur.

    That was one thing, however gotta say boys, I find it pretty fucking weird and gross that this is now allowed apparently. There’s a lot of shit I don’t agree with here, but I have no interest in spending my time with a community that is allowed to use homophobic and racial slurs at will. Freedom of speech is important, yeah, but understanding the history of these words and the effects they still have to this day is important. You’re not lessening the “power” of these words as you may think you are. You’re just normalizing them and strengthening the population that uses them as forms of oppression.

    So anyways, yeah. The the community allowing a bunch of white kids to freely spam racial slurs is a good enough sign that this community ain’t really for me.

    So cya fam.

    I love how you got banned for using one in a meme but players can harass others with slurs and only catch a 1 day

    They're literally just words. Not even proper insults, they're singular words. I'm not gonna defend the people who use these words excessively, but if you're quitting playing Just because of some words someone says, not only are you giving trolls what they want, but you're also wayyyy too sensitive for the internet.
    Also, this is gmod, are you actually expecting people to be mature
    on a video game?
