yeah, this is an ancient board that hasn't been updated in over a decade and it has some stupid offensive emoticon (not emoji, btw) on it that literally NOBODY ever uses. is it really something to make an outraged SJW thread about? to me that seems more about communicating that you're one of the good guys or seeking validation, rather than really worrying about gay people's welfare.

pardon in advance for my prickling terminology, this is something that peeves me regardless of this thread.

this is really strange. i thought geo was a universally liked hall of famer top tier netphorian or whatever that everybody also knew in real life.

what the fuck is this

does she really use 'nigger' that much unironically (not that it would even make it better if it was)?

if that's what prompted turdlion to make this thread it renders my post irrelevant

i do think that Americans kind of overdo this PC thing, and that it often comes instead of (rather than in addition to) common courtesy and respect

i don't think that's what triggered the thread, but it definitely bring the concern from the hypothetical to the concrete.

that said i think it's weird when white dudes complain of having to "walk on eggshells" when they're expected to be mindful of their speech.

come on, man, don't flatten my point to that. this has nothing to do with seeking for excuses to be a raging piece of garbage, and everything to do with some people too strictly engaging in enforcement of superficial semantics, more than the intent and goodwill behind it.

for the record, what i'm talking about is stuff like when Jerry Seinfeld had that bit about how flipping through your contacts list on an iPhone involves whizzing your finger across the screen in an upward motion, in a manner that makes you look like a "gay french king". and then people grilled him hard for it

good because the stereotype that gay folk or any folk have specific mannerisms needs to die. Seinfeld can go cry in his pie

Let's pick apart the gay french king thing then. I would argue that the joke itself wasn't as objectionable as his response to the outcry over the joke.

First let's just understand why people were annoyed with the joke. We're talking about a class of people that has been historically subjugated in our culture and, in a lot of jurisdictions in america, still are. Like, violently subjugated. You can still get fired from your job for being gay. Some Pulse nightclub survivors were disowned by their families after they were outed by the shooter. That is the kind of shit we're talking about, and saying "gay french king" as shorthand for some sort of an "other" reinforces that cultural perception.

With me so far?

There is plenty of room for forgiveness if you accidentally say the wrong thing onstage. We've all got blind spots, but we're not entitled to change lanes without looking behind us and eschew responsibility for causing the accident.

Instead Jerry doubled down and asserted that he has the right to not care about whether he is reinforcing cultural perceptions that literally get people killed. It tells me that the dude would say nigger onstage if he were still able to sell out madison square garden.

I follow a lot of blogger gossip and an astrociouse mainstay insult is that within a hetero monogamous relationship that there could be a gay husband. Because this and that sets off the "gaydar" of the gossipers. Like we've convinced ourselves that homosexuals or people of colors or whatever are inherently one way or another. Like nobody considers confirmation bias or
