A public university in Canada unveiled a YouTube campaign this month aimed at discouraging the use of “homophobic” language among its students.

A public university is using online video to discourage students from using words they deem "homophobic."

The project targets words often used by college kids in in conversation, such as “no homo,” “so gay” and “dyke.”

The thirty-second video portrays a series of young adults cursing. Each vulgar word is censored in the video until and individuals uses the phrase “gay faggot.”

A message then appears asking: “When will homophobic language be unacceptable too?”

At the time of publication, the video has over 13,000 views on YouTube.

One comment on YouTube from a self-described gay individual appeared to skewer the video’s overall message.

“I can say first hand as a gay person I’m not offended by these words,” wrote an individual with the username “silveeto.”

He added that he too uses some of the language condemned by the video and that “it’s the tone and intent one uses these words with that does the damage.”
