Matt Damon's Daughter Got Him To Stop Using 'F-Slur' For LGBTQ+ People Damon was using the 'F slur' as recently as 'months ago' before his daughter explained why that... wasn't a good look.

Matt Damon revealed in a new interview how his daughter convinced him to stop using the 'f-slur' for LGBTQ+ people.

In an articleSunday Times, Damon was discussing “changes in modern masculinity” when he launched into a weird story, seemingly out of nowhere, about how he stopped using the “f-slur” to refer to LGBTQ+ people.“I made a joke, months ago, and got a treatise from my daughter,” Damon said. “She left the table. I said, ‘Come on, that’s a joke! I say it in the movie Stuck on You!’ She went to her room and wrote a very long, beautiful treatise on how that word is dangerous. I said, ‘I retire the f-slur!’ I understood.”

Oh boy. There’s just a whole lot to unpack here. First of all, the fact that Damon used that word inStuck on You35 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating, isn’t really relevant to anything, especially whether it’s OK to refer to a marginalized group of people by a dehumanizing slur. And while it’s obviously good that Damon isn’t using that word anymore, why the hell did it take him this long, and what does he expect, a golf clap for taking the tiniest step toward not being a homophobic asshole, and only because his daughter told him to?

Damon also said that word “was commonly used when I was a kid, with a different application.” Which, no it wasn’t. It was still a slur, it was just more commonly used as an insult because homophobia wasn’t something that got you canceled 40 years ago. Luckily for everyone in the entire world except Matt Damon, homophobia will

definitelyNeedless to say, Twitter wasn’t impressed byanyof this.Imagine this headline about any other derogatory ethnic/racial/religious etc slur being used in 2021. People would be up in arms and rightfully so. But you’re still allowed to be homophobic in this fake-woke industry. HAPPY PRIDE!!! 🌈🌈🌈🌈
