And my point is you can't project your own understanding that the words are used in a derrogatory/abusive fashion.

How would i know if you did it to spite me?

I have not said anything of the sort. Why would you attempt to derail the thread towards beliefs I do not have and derrogatory slurs I have not written?

I just said to the other guy that when you accidentally assume a gender or use one of the billions of microagressions, that you aren't an asshole.

What are you talking about? Where don't LGBT people fit? Personally, I think it makes more sense to blame the people who "despise" groups of people than it does to blame groups of people they despise.

 

Also, lucky for us that we have the capacity to focus on more than one thing at a time. So we can deal with security, and domestic issues at the same time.

Oh really? You think putting up the LGBT/gender meshing crowd as the current face of western society is a good idea to the people who are trying to blow up Europe one piece at a time is a good idea? You think not focusing on the actual peoples welfare (migrants and all) instead of their gender is first on the to do list? Anyway, you are proving my growing suspicion that a soviet cold war mind fuck worked on the west and we are slowly but obendiently sleep walking off a cliff.  I'm aware of how ridiculous that sounds but what sounds more ridiculous is a teacher not being able to call there students "girl, lady, madam or woman" under penalty of law. Trump is more ridiculous. Stutnex is more ridiculous. Turkey's "security measures" are more ridiculous. The Brexit is more ridiculous. And above all, this pronoun list is insane... 

I think it's cowardly and sad to suggest that we should dictate our lives and how we treat one another based on what terrorists think.

 

As I said, we can do both. We don't need stop focusing on one problem to deal with another.

I still dont get what the Soviet Union has to so with any of this...

 

You know what I think about that list of pronouns? I don't give a shit about it. Who cares? I don't give a shot about whether teachers call students women or girls or god damn unicorns. It's not worth my time to think about. But if it matters to someone else that I use certain pronouns and not others, fuck it, fine, whatever. Because once again. I don't care.

 

If someone tries to silence someone that has a different opinion from them, that I have a problem with. If someone tries to deny someone service because of what they think of who they are, that I have a problem with.

 

But these garbage fights against people asking that we just be a little bit more respectful to one another are bullshit.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

Bad day?

Ah, don't take it outta context. I mean forcefully so, the more kids that see their teachers persecuted for not getting a gender pronoun correct or kids abusing these systems to abuse eachother in ways I'm sure we won't even have imagined the more hate you direct towards LGBT. I'm all for equality but not under these circumstances and I'm against the political front of any minority group causing real harm toward the future of implementation of this equality, even to the point of getting that group killed, as we have seen in the shooting in Florida. You just can't force it, the "ignorant" need to believe they thought of it or they will reject it and instead destroy it. If you have seen the movie inception, this is basic stuff man.

I *think* I understand where you're headed.

My policy on all those new pronouns is that a person shouldn't get offended if at first I don't use the right pronoun for their situation as it's not always easy to know but should that person ask me to use "ze" when talking about hir(?), I'll make the effort to do so.

It would be just as misplaced for me to be offended about that person wanting me to use that pronoun than it would for hir to be offended by me messing up at first.

uhh..I think you were on drugs.

Anyhow, I've realized that there's no point in arguing anymore. Only a small percentage of people are extremely PC, but I'm sure it will expand as time goes on.

I just choose to say nothing to most people. If you say nothing, there's typically no reason as to why people would do something to you.

I realize that these threads are nothing but a waste of time.

 

Most of time the people we complain about are nothing but a minority- LGBT, feminazis, Super SJW's, age sliders, etc.

 

I guess just ignoring it ends up making life so much better. Removes all the stupid arguments and stress that comes out of it.

After reading the OP all anyone can say is put the bong down.

Wait, are you saying that pronoun thing was real? I thought it was just showing like German versions of pronouns or something?

I'm not an expert on them but I think they are a list of gender-neutral pronouns and since they are not official words, not everyone agrees on which set of pronouns to use.
