I reference to this thread.
Not so fast, you ignorant asshole.
Some terms are generally considered vulgar, insulting, and offensive. Among these we have nigger, cripple, gimp, whore, and she-male.
Politely pointing out to someone that a term is in this category is not the same thing as taking offense or flaming.
Politely pointing out that something is phrased in what could be offensive terms, or phrased in a way that presumes a situation that is not in fact the case, is not flaming.
Some suppositions are inherently offensive, and wrong to boot. Among these are: it is the white man’s burden to shepard the other races because only white men are fit to govern, any woman wearing make up or tight clothing is a whore and has, by dressing provocatively, consented to any sexual activity and need not be asked before fucking her, and transsexuals are really their apparent birth sex, they may try to change it, but genitalia determine the true sex of an individual anyone asserting otherwise is simply delusional.
Where the hell do you get off telling transsexuals that in order to acheive acceptance in society they need to stop taking offense? You seemed to have taken offense easily enough just from having ignorance pointed out to others in front of you, are you accepted in society? Isn’t it a wee bit overly sensitive on your part to take offense on behalf of someone who was not being insulted? Why do you feel that behavior is fine, but that transsexual just have to shut their mouths?
You just popped into a GQ thread to make overbroad generalizations in support of someone else who is making offensive overbroad categoriztion in support of someone who made offensive comparisons. The place for that is not GQ, it is Great Debates, or possibly the Pit.
Let’s review the offensive generalization:
Up to that point kwikwitty had not said anything that was obviously or deliberately offensive. It had been pointed out that kwikwitty’s thread title may be deemed offensive by some because it makes an underlying assumption that is not true. No one in the thread had been been taking personal exception to anything said, and then BOOM she compares transsexuals to delusional snakes. Nice going. Good choice of animal for maximum offense. Dog80 can you really tell me that what kwikwitty was not actually offensive?
Side point about ladies and women: Eve is a lady. She deservers respect. She is generally polite, always classy, and makes keen, witty, and insightful observations about those around her. If Eve told me directly that I was batshitcrazy, she would do so with the utmost class, and I would probably look into seeing a shrink. She has a good eye for these things.
She is also of course a woman.
Kelly is a woman. I have never once noticed her being a lady. She was closer to being one than usual in that thread in that she was not attacking at all, and was being polite. She does have respect for GQ, if not for those who would call her a delusional snake.
