  • new word bandied around by bigots on Youtube (yeah, I know--great place to follow 'discussion') to describe those pussies who are letting their country get taken over by the Islamic Agenda -_-

    October 28, 2009

  • I object to the term "pussies" being used as a pejorative.

    October 28, 2009

  • I object to the whole clause "who are letting their country get taken over by the Islamic Agenda"; I remember when people started talking about the "gay agenda". The fact is that the people who talk in such terms are usually doing so to promote their own agenda of fear- and hate-mongering, as a way of ensuring that people who think like them (i.e. narrow-mindedly, selfishly, unimaginatively, naively) stay in charge of things.

  • True dat.

    October 28, 2009

  • do you--y'all--also object to fairly obvious sarcasm?

    I make the bold suggestion that taking upon oneself the work of noting/policing (in a fairly low-key capacity, granted) offensive Wordie content can be an impediment to thorough reading comprehension.

    October 28, 2009

  • I wasn't policing anything. I was just making a comment. Chill.

    (Also, your sarcasm was not "fairly obvious.")

  • I ought to put it into quotation marks next time for the c_bs and roligs of the world, eh?

    October 29, 2009

  • And maybe the reesetees. I wasn't sure it was sarcasm myself. Hard to tell when it's just type. Quotation marks might help. :-)

    October 29, 2009

  • Well, MM, you should put it in quotation marks if it's a quote; that would at least indicate that it is not necessarily your view. I admit that I don't know how to interpret the punctoglyph "-_-": does that mean sarcasm?

    Unfortunately, with political and social discourse in America (especially, and of course especially on the Internet) sinking to new depths everyday, it's getting more and more difficult to tell the difference between sarcasm, hyperbole, intentional insult, strategic prevarication, disinformation, sheer ignorance and downright nastiness. What tends to stand out, however, because it's so rare, is serious, respectful, informed and well-considered comment.

    October 29, 2009

  • I was going to include you in the list, reesetee--but I didn't want to be presumptuous.

    -_- is not abstruse in my circles; it's a pretty standard pictorial representation of a headdesk or "oh, brother". let me also point out the phrase new word bandied around by bigots in the original comment.

    it's sort of beneath any Wordie to consider it consistent with another Wordie's character to self-identify as a bigot...I hope.
