You can call me out, which is fine. I call people out all the time, when I have a problem with it is when you slap words like homophobic on me or anyone else for really not good reasons.
I initially thought it was a made up word, which was why I used it( since it’s a dumb play on words wich is funni ha ha funi fni). when you implied it was some sort of slur I looked into it, and found stuff that didn’t use it as a slur or derogatory term, and instead was a lesser known thing.
a quick excerpt from the Wikipedia page on it.
Gaymer and gay gamer are umbrella terms used to refer to the group of people who identify themselves as gay and have an active interest in video games or tabletop games, also known as gamers. Lesbian, bisexual, and transgender gamers are often categorized under this term.
(heres the full link to it btw https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaymer)
the official(?) subreddit for it https://www.reddit.com/r/gaymers/
and a site called gaymerx https://gaymerx.org/about-us
uh… it actually is…
But that’s about all I have to say honestly. I don’t hate you or anything @HeyItsWii, I just didn’t like how it SEEMED like you were ignoring the context of the original post from my perspective, just like how the wording in the post SEEMED to be homophobic from your perspective. so yeah, that’s about it from me since I don’t have much to say about the societal portion of it (mainly since my intention with the wording wasn’t related), other than it’s alright to be gay/bisexual/trans/rock/whatever you want really.
as for your 2nd post I actually don’t have anything to say since I’m very confused by it since most of them don’t have a pun scheme to them like gaymer, except gayried I guess but that doesn’t sound right since it sounds like gary.
besides, the original post was a sperg out of the millennia anyway since I lacked the braincells to look for context, but I’m a skeptic ™ so is alright ( ͡~ ͜ʖ ͡°).
Edit: Gaytar doesn’t have a good pun scheme either, as it has two strong vowels which make it sound really weird. Gyeetar sounds much better imo and makes more sense.
