    quoting the comic, if you're yelled at, your free speech rights aren't being violated, everyone just thinks you are an asshole. And they are showing you the door.
    We aren't breaking jackshit. If you don't like the rules here, then fuck off.

    Removal of content and banning usage of a public forum isn't showing someone the door; it's pushing them out and locking the door behind.

    Or putting it another way (I quite like this way of saying it), free speech means you have a right to say what you want, but it also means other people have the right to bitch about it.

    Not to remove it, though.

    Personally, I don't see myself ever actually saying the N-word, but that's because I don't swear in general.

    Forums are not public places though. Compare it to going to a bar or a walmart. If you're being an obnoxious asshole in front of the staff you'll end up getting kicked out and they are completely in their right to do that because they own or operate an establishment and you are standing/sitting on their property. Or to someone trespassing on your private property by standing outside your window butt naked and waving their junk around. That's not about free speech anymore. You are allowed to be an obnoxious asshole but the owner/operator of an establishment is allowed to set rules for who is allowed in the establishment because it's their property, the only thing they can't do is discriminate based on race, sexual orientation etc. And forums are privately owned in much the same way.
    In addition to that, forums, and other forms of websites, are a service, and access to a service is a privilege, not a right.

    Unpopular? Please. MOST popular opinion on the Temp And it's all a rerun from the Gatehate days. Boring

    Or indeed anywhere else? Not saying hate speech is cool but you NEED free speech. The door swings both ways. Really dangerous road. Even Hitler had good intentions, and arguably did a lot of good for his country, in the beginning. Banning ANY speech will only serve to make it more desirable to the right kind of moron. Don't make the same mistake the war on drugs made. Ignorance cant be swept under the rug. Or beaten out of people. That's how ignorance starts. And I think there might not be as much hate speech if everyone wanted equality as much as they want their voices heard. Not every group has visibility. There are about 25% of America has a disaility but no way 1 in four on TV is disabled for example. And groups who have 4-6% of the population want a character in every damn show. It makes people not like you. Not because you are a minority or have a unique sexual personality. They don't like you because you complain too much and try to publicly lynch anyone you see as a threat to your agenda. That's an oppressor.. Cancel culture, SJW.. Oppressors Don't be a Hypocrite and practice what you preach.. freedom of choice. Even if YOU don't like it. Let the morons speak. It will only serve to help everyone figure out who they really are. We don't need the morons in the closet.

    It actually is. The act of hate speech is completely legal among other adults that want to hear it. True. Not defending them. I just do not condone infringing on anyone's rights. Isn't the phrase "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it" The basis of free speech? Sad all these people don't understand you can't have your cake and eat it too. The more visible the deviation from what someone feels is comfortable the more intense the emotional response will be. And both sides jump straight to hate. I recognize their views are vastly different but everyone really just wants to protect what they see as right. Even if their wrong. You can't chastise free speech. Simply point at the dummy and laugh. Make him a joke. Take the power away. Banning things never works, ask drugs, kinks ,religions, sweets, masturbation, homosexuality, rap, metal, guns, knives and everything else society has ever deemed unfit at one time or another. Treat ignorance as something that's embarrassing and contagious. Make your inclusion to a group secondary to who you are and focus on the content of your character. Maybe the slurs stop hurting so much if you find other things of value in yourself and don't base your self worth on your sexuality? Sometimes it hard to see who someone is past the "identity" BS. .If all you are is your sexuality, class, race, job title I feel sorry for you. You suck,

    Free speech is the MOST important thing. The shut down of ideas is how the oppressors take power. You don't get to dictate people's personalities. Or SOMEONE will dictate yours. Once sanitation and gentrification starts it won't ever stop until everyone is fully homogenized. Calm down. Point out that person is an idiot. And move on. If a turd calls you a piece of shit it doesn't mean much. Until you give it power. Show some class and don't think you gotta beat them. They are already turds. Let them cry, Maybe use a little more tact about who's face you get in? Not everyone wants to talk about certain subjects. Stop forcing them. Leave them alone. You won't help you cause or change their mind by making people uncomfortable and acting like an asshole. Come on. Equality means equal. Both ways. If you want peace you have to provide compassion to the other side. Fighting for acceptance/peace is like fucking for virginity.

    Proof positive that it's just about your identity and not equality for the masses. Are you fighting for Eskimo immigrant rights and the dis-inclusion of people with eating disorders? No. Not equal. And not that you don't have a right to stick up for yourself and care for your interests. Just stop pretending it's not hateful on both sides and stop pretending equality is the real goal. If it's not about equality, it's all a kind of hate speech. You're not special. And when you send the SWJ gestapo after someone, remember, it's one slip of the tongue or misstep and they will be coming for YOU TOO!:rofl2: That's equality!

    Here's an excerpt of the Wikipedia article for public forums.

    In the legal sense of public forum, which means something completely different than what you think.
    Also from Wikipedia, in the paragraph right above the one you quoted:
    A public forum, also called an open forum, is open to all expression that is protected under the First Amendment. Streets, parks, and sidewalks are considered open to public discourse by tradition and are designated as traditional public forums.

    Unpopular opinion: You have the right to say whatever you want, but also expect to be called out for it, and if a place happens to have a set of rules, the said rules will be applied.
    This place isn't anarchy, if you truly need your echo chamber of free speech, find another community, it's really not that hard.

    "Hitler had good intentions" good intentions don't matter when you use them as an excuse for ethic cleansing and genocide.
