A tragedy. My thoughts go out to his family and loved ones.

You used an "ad hominem" attack, calling those who disagree with you stupid so clearly you are not interesting in an intelligent fair debate that could actually change my mind. "
Hey! Someone took high school debate. :)
I also didn't base my argument on your stupidity, i just threw it in as a sidenote. So this doesn't fall under an "ad hominem" attack. I included an attack on top of actual points. That's what you call an "Added Ad Hominem"... "Attack".
Your comparisons are ridiculous....
Jokes are always at someone or something's expense. Show me a joke that doesn't have a target and I'll show you a Street Fighter quote in a fucking Bartlett's.
Let me explain this in detail since some of us are clearly not geniuses.
Saying "I Love Guy... (no homo)" is a joke that's neither deragatory or abrasive. It's simply a play on the irony of the sentence. It sounds like he said "I Love Guys", you see. I could actually make an argument by you assuming that it's derogatory, in fact, makes you the bigot, not the original poster.
If I said "I Love Ken... (and I'm no Barbie)" would that make me a bigot? Am I prejudiced against Barbies? Absolutely not. Does the joke still make sense? Yes, of course it does, I am simply pointing out the irony in the statement.
Find a different soapbox. And live to fight another Crusade. :)
