    Like, maybe I pronounce it weird? I don't really stress the "T" sound in the second syllable. I knew kids in school who would say it like "Mardin" and that didn't sound right either.

    I say it more like "Mart-ihn"

    This is an assumption on my part, but... Maybe an accent thing? Some people would drop the ti from the name, kinda like Mar 'n.

    I've got a slight southern accent so it'd be pronounced more like Mar'in but not out of like

    being unable to grasp the name Martin on some fundamental level

    Yeah, I pronounce it like the way you guys have suggested, sorta like Mar'n, or Mar-ihn.

    People always think I'm saying Mark.

    That's probably the thing, then. Mark is probably a more common name than Martin, so that lack of a super pronounced second syllable might throw people off.

    I live in Utah where people don't bother with consonants and only use one or two generic vowel sounds, so I've had to spend some serious time trying to decipher verbal mush

    Wait, what?

    they've used gay-type insults many, many times

    and on a more recent thing, they were joking about how much money it'd take for them to pay ray to get fucked in the ass by a gay porn star in madison square, which like i guess is just a sort of "what if" question. now it could be argued that it's not insulting because of course a straight guy wouldn't want to get fucked like that, or a gay guy wouldn't want to have the whole public display aspect, but the part that is really damning is when gavin said something along the lines,"i think i'd be more grossed out if i just saw you kiss a dude" which uh,

    Fast food places sometimes have employees who will call out "ORDER 19 FOR VIRGIN? IS THERE A VIRGIN HERE?"

    I've just started using fake names when I go to coffee shops, which is very rare anyway.

    Jerome is a good one.

    None of that is good but also doesn't sound very malicious

    Still problematic for sure, but I doubt they are intentionally hating on gay people, or at least based on what you've said.

    I wont watch them after hearing that, though. Understanding only goes so far, and I get real sick these days of even unintentional homophobia. It's old. If you literally feel gross watching two dudes (and no other couples) kiss you need to grow up and stop being a 12 year old.

    Look, I've watched a shit ton of let's plays from Achievement Hunter.

    In the most recent Let's Play Minecraft, Gavin asked Ryan if he would replace his teeth with clitorises for a year for $250k.

    They look for gross things to get a rise out of each other, because they are self-admitted terrible people.

    And guess what's gross to a straight male? Two dudes sexing it up. Because that's gay. You know what's gross to gay dudes? A man and woman having sex. It's also perfectly reasonable to think anal sex, or any kind of sex, really, is gross.

    At no point have they said anything against homosexuality, homosexual rights, or gay marriage that I am aware of.

    In the 7 Days to Die Pt. 2 Let's Play from this week, Jack related a story in which he worked at a conservative radio station, and I'm pretty much quoting here, "They were super nice people, but then they would go on the air and call homosexuality a disease, which is weird".

    edit: and by gross I don't mean immoral or unacceptable. just... you know, gross

    I can't stop being baffled by this

    Not to say I disbelieve you, just that I cannot comprehend how people would have issues

    In the Atlanta area we've got so many different people from all over the world with names that I physically have trouble pronouncing just because of only knowing English. Something as simple as Martin would be a blessing.

    I...live in New York City, so I mean....we're not exactly hurting for a more diverse population

    I'm starting to think it's me and my pronunciation of my own name that is the issue here.

    I think during one of their Minecraft building videos they mentioned that while driving to work some mornings they'd play a game where they'd try to find the most attractive lady they could walking to college or whatever and then surreptitiously follow her around in their car for as long as they could.

    Which made me realize that maybe they were maybe just a little too brotastic for me.

    I just had a peanut butter and honey sandwich with some chocolate syrup on it.

    I was thinking about putting some Honey Nut Cheerios in there, but ended up not doing that.

    There's already honey up in there.
