Dire Straights

I'm sorry, Canadian Broadcast Standards Council, but are there really gay people out there offended by the term Faggot in this day and age? Aside from some made up gay rights group that I've never heard of before and never will again, and is likely using the issue as a way to increase their minuscule membership. The name, address, and phone number of anyone who wants to censor something in Canada should be made public so that they can feel the repercussions of what their idiocy hath created.

I highly doubt the complainant in this case was a homosexual male. In fact I think it more likely that the complainant was a religious zealot campaigning against what they consider swear words.

Now all of the rest of Canada, most of us sensible, look like idiots thanks to your efforts and the efforts of this one idiot newfie.

I'd also like to point out that 92 Citi FM, POWER 97, BOB FM, or any local radio station does not actually have to abide by what the broadcast standards council has set out. It is a completely voluntary organization radio stations feel the need to join to make it look like they're sensitive to the complaints of the idiot minority in this country who are offended by anything and everything.

I'm surprised that the band was not consulted in regards to the intent of the word. There are other meaning including one in Britain that mean meatball.
