heh heh. fag.
Hell if this episode offended people (homosexuals, bikers, whoever else) then Matt & Trey did their jobs. Lord knows they've done it in the past.
Now as for the episode itself... this in my opinion, was a perfect example of South Park's brilliant satire. They didn't have to tackle a current event, or some governmental or international crisis--no. All they did was a commentary on the evolution of words in American society, and how nowadays "phag" is more likely to mean "jerk" than "gay person."
I liked all the boys teamed up like good ole times, and I especially liked the way the official word-change thing was handled. Overall, a really polished episode.
Now I will admit that it was a little low on laughs, and by the third act there was a little bit of that all-too-familiar "WE GET IT" syndrome. But solid all the way through, and another reason why Season 13 is kicking so much ass.
8/10 Buh-bye now.
Favorite Episode: Good Times with Weapons
i agree, except for the laugh bit. i laughed. a lot. yeah.
season 13 is ok....for sure the worste out of all the other seasons but i still believe in you south park!your my favorite show!
I don't care if they try to suck my dick, I'm calling every biker I see from now on a fag right to their faces.
edit: lol wtf, the "f" word gets filtered to homosexual.
Cartman: Line? Lines! I HATE LINES!!!
I will voice another response from a homosexual...(lol can't call myself a "f4g" anymore I guess )
I admit that for the last few years, seeing the trend of kidz randomly using the term f4g and my perceived derogatory connotations offended me. I even tried convincing friends not to use it.
But this episode completely changed my mind. Sure the term is used all the time now, but I should not worry about it since that is not the intended meaning. If anything I should remember that this may be the least oppressive time in all of history against homosexuals...especially amongst younger people. ...Perhaps to the point (dare I believe?) where an exclusive derogatory connotation is not even necessary in many peoples' viewpoint.
It's just like "Chef going 'Nanners" against the South Park flag...
This makes it - not the best episode I've seen, but certainly one that has profoundly changed my views.
"I learned something today - "
"Hey he's right!..."
That said, remember next symbolic layer that everyone suddenly did not tolerate (lol like the Museum) a different group of people. In the end, is that any less wrong???
A couple more responses to other posts-
- There were several episodes regarding the word n*gger and the various dichotomy of intent of meaning versus ones' lexicon and preconceptions. From "A burning T - ...Time to leave?" to "Aides" to the entire episode concerning the n-word with Randy on Wheel of Fortune (LOL!) (I could go on...these are common SP themes...)
-LMFAO - I just looked up f4g in Wikipedia
Great job Trey and Matt - I watch this show literally daily and I cannot believe after so long you are [again] on a roll with these ingeniously relevant yet hilarious episodes.

I'm a patchholder myself, and I lost a litt bit of respect for Stone amd Parker on this one. In all of their other episodes they very directly rip on specific people/ groups, etc. In this episode they seemed very careful to not point out any specific group even though they are very close to the Bandido's, Hells Angel's, and Sons of Silence. They left it vauge enough to imply that they may have been referring to RUB's or the Harley Riders Group even though those guys don't ride with chains, guns, and molotovs.... still a funny ass episode though, I was laughing all the way through.
