I was watching How I Met Your Mother last night and and FFIL came in. A scene with Neil Patrick Harris and several attractive women came on and FFIL goes "It's really funny, they have him with all these hot women and he's a f*ggot!" and continues to laugh. All I did was look at the tv and sternly say "mhmm" but I was seriously shocked and am still really bothered by this. I am very, very close to my uncle who is a homosexual and I have many homosexual friends. I don't know why it bothers me so much because I'm sure he wasn't trying to be nasty, he was probably just raised to believe that what is now known as hate speech is perfectly acceptable. Should I be worried about the day he and my uncle meet? My uncle is in no way obvious but I don't want him (or my FBIL who is also partial to slurs) to think they're being funny and say something like that.
