Limits to what?

Freedom of expression? THERE ARE LIMITS!!!

It's like banging your head against the wall.

Yet you don't give a shit about someone's wishes when they use the word 'gay' as a deragatory.

Justin!

There is absolutely NO LEGAL RIGHT for the parents to force anyone to take their son's name off. THEREFORE, the builders of the memorial have no legal obligation to do so!

With that said, this whole conversation can basically boil down to:

Justin: I don't like it

Everyone else: Ok, that's fine. "I don't like it" is not a good enough reason to cancel freedom of speech.

End of story!

That other thread on "That's so gay" was never aimed towards anyone.

Perhaps, in the spirit of compassion, they should remove the name. But the law doesn't require them to do so. Period.

There is really no grey in this case.

But there are other instances where people are forced to and it' supported by people aquí.

You're not getting this because you aren't listening to people.

You want freedom of speech squashed due to someone's wishes. It doesn't matter if it's aimed at anyone or not, it's still someone's wishes.

Wishes DON'T DICTATE free speech!!!

I'm just going to quote and emphasize that for good measure.

The "That's so Gay" thread. How many people did I hear say she should not have said that , which implies that it's forbidden?

You'd have to look at specifically the court decisions in your state/country. They are likely similar to ours, but not necessarily.

Violence is not permissible as a form of expression. Hate speech may or may not be permissible depending on the context. Certain forms of expression in public places may not be permissible, depending on context. Certain types of advertising may not be permissible under a freedom of speech clause. Etc, etc, etc.
