If a friend or relative makes a racist or homophobic remark, do you tend to confront them or let it slide? Are you more likely to confront them if it offends you directly or someone else who seems reluctant to speak up?
It depends on who it is, what the remark is about, and if I'm in a confrontational mood. I always speak up if it's gay bashing, or just somebody being ignorant about gays. It doesn't matter who it is or what mood I'm in, I won't put up with it. Even them calling a gay a "fegalla" isn't cool with me. It's supposedly not a bad term but when it comes from their mouths it is. Like them saying "shvartzie" when talking about a black person. I think it really just means "black" in hebrew (not 100% on that) but coming out of their mouths I'll hear as the N word in Hebrew and won't put up with that shit either.
Sometimes it doesn't pay to speak up. Some of these people are brick walls when it comes to these things and I just end up getting a sore throat from speaking for no reason.I can't say "no good reason" because it's always good to shoot down ignorant and bigot remarks, even if people won't listen to you.
