Too many children talk about Fortnite at my school, on the internet, and just in general. I would like this word to become taboo and effectively stifle the conversations about this game. Making the word "Fortnite" a slur against homosexual people will make its use in public places immoral and frowned down upon. The word "Fortnight", however; will not become a slur as it refers to a time-frame of two weeks which is completely inoffensive. Epic games will eventually change the name of their game leading to copyright issues and confusion among the public. This tiny step may lead to the death of this cancer spreading across our beautiful world. Many may ask, "Why a slur against homosexual people?", the reason is making the word "Fortnite" a slur gives a sense of irony. A majority of "Fortnite Gamers" are edgy 7-12 year olds. These "gamers" often criticize and bombard individuals of a different race and sexual orientation. If we make "Fortnite" a homosexual slur, we turn their favorite game into a horrible and hateful word with the sole purpose of delivering pain. Together we can get the attention of the public and bring upon the association of the word "Fortnite" with bigoted individuals who are against homosexuals.
