First topic message reminder :

It's been brought to my attention that we've never banned insults that single out a specific gender, which was a massive oversight on my behalf. So from here on, nothing along the lines of "bitch" or worse.

Use your own judgment, of course. Insults aren't always insults among friends, right? And some are milder than others -- I don't see us banning "silly cow," for example.

Mods, please help me out on this one. Cool

As you know, I agree with you eds.  I don't think its "becoming so delicate" as it is people going tribal.  Ya know, anything to hurl back. Twisted Evil

Will we all become collectively offended if gay people suddenly get upset by the word “gay”?

Do we only become offended ourselves when other groups suddenly become offended?

If it doesn’t offend you already why does it take other’s offence to make us suddenly offended?

Anyone answer that? Please note -- a class of words we don't want to see here - Page 2 2190311264

I think words like that are ugly, and say more about the person saying them than the person they're saying them to. They don't offend me, though, and that's not why I banned them -- I banned them because they offend the people who are called those words.

And anybody here who can't see the logic of that is probably just a honkified cracker-ass piece of white trash!

Not me, but I will refrain from using the word "gay" toward homosexuals, because they said it upset them and I don't wish to upset anyone.

Do we only become offended ourselves when other groups suddenly become offended?

As I said earlier, it doesn't offend me, I just think it's ugly and of low character.

If it doesn’t offend you already why does it take other’s offence to make us suddenly offended?

It doesn't offend me, that's not why I don't use those words. I don't use those words because they offend others, and I'm not out to provoke any undue offense.

I think it depends on when you were brought up to a certain extent...for eg the C and T words, along with the F word was very seldom heard when I was a kid, it certainly was never on TV or film, so they were indeed taboo words for most people.
Now....and I have to say especially on forums, they are used so randomly they have lost any power they once had to shock. Used in conversation they dont bother me...used in realms of abuse they do.

Then again language is ever changing, Negro, coloured, half caste, terms which were once accepted are now not.
So yes, I think if other people get offended we try to re-educate ourselves just to pander to present trends.

it's what group think does to you

a spokesman for the gay group says that now the word gay is offensive. the social arguments go back and forth with the gay group and they all agree (at least the vocal activists) that they don't like the word gay anymore

the rest of society then splits into those who feel frustrated, those who laugh, those who mock and also those who jump on it (again, vocal activists) and decide for the rest of us what we can or cannot say

gay or not, affects them or not, it doesn;t matter. it's something to get offended by, it's something to shout about, it's
a 'cause' worth fighting for

personal feelings are not questioned and certainly logic plays no part

i sometimes think that some people's lives are so empty and lacking anything substantial that they have an actual need to have something to fight for even if in reality it's irrelevant to them

And there you have it!
We pander. And we pander and we pander...until there’s nothing left of us as unique individuals.

We ban slurs that target someone for, and only for, being a certain color, religion, sexual orientation, and now gender.

Didge was trying to act like I've only banned anti-woman slurs. That's not true, I said in the OP that any slur against a gender is now banned.

The n word slurs a black person simply and only for being black; the s-lag word slurs a woman simply and only for being a woman.

Dickhead, prick, wanker, etc. don't slur men for the simple fact that they're men -- they carry the same connotation as asshole.


What a crock of shit and lying out of your arse now

What is the c word then? It does not slur women, but you banned it, why? Based on your reasoning above.

Its just you acting like you were born in the 18th century and have not realised we are in the 21st century

Its you living in a sexist by-gone time with a view treating women differently from men

So please the pretence Ben its utter bullshit what you are saying

People swear and slur all the time at people with often the intent to insult

You are simple choosing words, you simple do not like. That is the reality of this

Either its wrong to abuse anyone with insults and slurs, or its okay and people need to grow a backbone

But isn't the only alternative to knowingly, willfully call people by a term that they find offensive?

Besides, these groups -- let's stay with gay people for the example -- don't really choose their own slurs, do they?

The people who hate gay people chose the slurs they used against gays, and after enough gay people had heard people who hate them calling them those slurs, they spoke out and said, "I'm not okay with you calling me that."

Do they not have that right?

That is because its derogatory to African people, basically attacking insulting black people. The c word is just a part of the body. I never knew vaginas had feelings do you?

Watch the videos I posted earlier today on this Eddie, two of them together

What if....black people decided that the word wasn’t offensive anymore? Would we feel okay to use it then?

Do you think people can stop being offended by the names others call them? Doesn't seem very likely to me.

In the meantime, I'd prefer to put most of the blame on the bigots for using bigoted terminology, rather than blame their targets.

How is the C word offensive to women when its simple a body part?

In other words is why dick, prick, cock etc are okay, because these body parts are never going to take offense

Of course its you trying to be white knight here, and that is reality

Many words change over time, I guess if racism ceased, would it then be considered racist? Could it become a term as it is used between black people as if people are brothers?

Who knows?

Many words change over time, I guess if racism ceased, would it then be considered racist? Could it become a term as it is used between black people as if people are brothers?

Who knows?

Okay let me explain this to you slowly.

What if....a movement happened for instance, where all black people said they weren’t offended anymore by the “N” word.

Of course its you trying to be white knight here, and that is reality

Well, like any word, it's not the word itself, it's how it's used.


Bollocks, its how you take the view being used based on how you take the word to be offesnive

So why not just admit that is what it really is about

That’s what I was replying to you about. For clarification.

But i stated the other part as well, so you ignored that and went into your mode of looking all high and mighty.

Try reading what i have said before responding

Nothing friendly about calling me a Yankee. I'm a Redneck.

Grandma's are possibly the best people to be in charge. They have been around for ages, seen it all, faced and overcome lifes difficulties, helped and guided young and old alike, stood strong when many of todays 'snowflakes' would melt, and still manage to cook, clean, keep their sense of humour, and look nice too.

Yeah.....Grandma's (or nana as I prefer to be called) rule. cheers

That wasn't meant personally, Syl.  It's just that conservatives are usually old people, clinging to their yesteryear views.  It's the generic Grandma.

For clarification (not read much beyond the OP, away with other things to do lol) are we banning those words outright, or only as insults against other posters?

There are more people against the decision of banning the bad word than the people who agree with the decision. (I did a head count lol.  
Myself I am neither for nor against, I don't feel strongly either way, so I did not count myself. But I will always obey the rules, new or old, no prob)


What I would like to remind Syl is that ...... her points about Wolfie were listened to, with RESPECT & PATIENCE.
A far cry from the way she swooped in on me, when I was busy making points about another guy and she used unsympathetic words like ''wilting'' & ''contrived'', then congratulated herself for being so clever at ''calling BS'' 
Respect surely works both ways

Syl doesn't "call BS"...

On the contrary --  Syl herself spouts pure mindless bullshit in the endless malice she produces in every other post on here..

Trolling nimrod Syl still remains one of the nastiest trolling dipsticks on here.

(There y'all go -- I can produce 'gender neutral' insults, when I put my mind to it.  Now let's see if those brainless nasties are able to return abuse without any of the usual sexist/racist/nationalist undertones that regularly pepper their idiotic rants..).

Jules, with respect, you harbour grudges and drag them around from one thread to another, often long after the 'offence' was first commited.

Seriously, can we please IF we have disagreements keep them in the thread they happened in in future.

I never congratulate myself btw....if I ever do say anything good I would leave it for others to show appreciation not myself. Wink

I posted in this thread cos this is where you are whining like a snivelling weasel about your own gripes, after rubbishing & dismissing my own gripes.


You never have the patience to read and understand and empathise, you're too busy falling over yourself to take sides and judge.


Use your common sense. If you decide to take sides in an argument that has nowt to do with you, then do so in a way that is not offensive.
----------------------------------------------

Now let me use the words that you used to me, Syl.
It's a bit contrived for you to use blatant emotional blackmail to get the rules of the forum changed, saying Wolfie made HT stop posting here.
You are behaving like a delicate wilting flower when you whine about words you dislike, after all you are ''tough'' aren't you?
And I am calling your BS.

Well they have been changed cos you moaned like fuck. Certain words are forbidden now. 

I don't mind that, couldn't care less. I mind the fact that you were griping directly after rubbishing & dismissing my own gripes.

Yes.
Remember we all have feelings, not just you.
Also remember that if you come at me with a nasty attitude, I will boomerang it back at you, so you can see what it feels like.

Another rule, Syl? People should be able to raise statements of someone delivered on another thread. It's called keeping them intellectually honest.

Otherwise, we'll have Caligula Trump, who directs killers in one breath, and eulogizes the victims in the next.
