I ignore him because he's crazy.

Here I thought it was because I make you look stupid. But then again a lot of people here do that, so you'd have to ignore just about everyone I guess.

Talk about lost nuances. :smt011

The argument is the rules of consideration only apply to a certain set of groups and not all of them. I read all kinds of disparaging comments about Canadians like we're some kind of second class citizen but if I question what's the big deal of some stressed out student using Jew as a verb, I'm a monster.

I admit to using racial stereotypical humor in selective company but I never advocated that people should spew bile without consequence. People shouldn't be held accountable for what they say to dead cats in boxes either. I simply raised the question is it always so black and white, is there no room for tolerance with people's indiscretions? I guess I should have known better.

You're Canadian? :shock:

Born and Raised in BC. I would put that info in my profile but I got tired of listening to all the snide comments around here about Canadians. You know what? Fuck 'em all if I can't take a joke.

Time to update the profile!

I understand. Hab is more equal than me, so I will not respond to his verbal abuse anymore.

Oh for the love of...the guy asking you if you're canadian is Canadian.

If you're reading Canadian jokes against posters, it's in good fun with friends just giving each other shit.

As opposed to offensive/ignorant/homophobic and down right insane things that are posted by a new poster who then tries to play the victim card because "no one understands him" :roll:

Interesting.

I don't really mind the Canadian jokes. Whenever people make them, I usually just shrug them off and think "my 700 sq. ft condo is worth more than your house" :lol:

But now that you got him dead to rights for committing a Thoughtcrime and now there's no limit to the Authority you can bring to bear on the young man. Show no mercy, make an example for the rest of the students to follow and ...
I would have suggested you forgive his trespasses and turn the other cheek but I know how you people don't go in for all that "tolerance" business.

isn't forgiving him not holding people accountable for their actions?

I'm not playing the Victim Card, I'm playing the Hypocrite Card.

What right do you have to label me as insane? Wouldn't it be offensive for me to label you insane for your beliefs? Maybe the Outhouse should change it's image and new posters wouldn't accidentally offend someone by describing certain depictions of Superman Nu as "fit for broadway."

Good lord, you've been carrying that grudge for almost a year now. If you think I'm a shit for brains for thinking that casual use of the words in question would be ok, HERE in the FUCKING OUTHOUSE, then I think I have the right to think you are an ignorant hypocrite.

isn't that advocating no consequences here?

Hey if he's disruptive to the class, by all means hold him accountable so that the rest of the class doesn't have to suffer. If the student is just falling asleep in class then the prof wants to make an example out of him for the rest of the group. Either way, holding him accountable will result in a net improvement for the rest of the class' experience.

The kid was frustrated, slipped up and used Jew as a verb, probably without even thinking he was talking to a Jewish bureaucrat. What should the kid be held accountable for and how would it result in a better experience for the rest of the group?

If I knew Yoni was jewish, I would have chalked it all up to another minority group with a chip on their shoulder and an axe to grind against the grand-children of their former tormentors and I wouldn't have gotten involved in this conversation at all. Since I did, I thought I would stick around and make that point anyways.

An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind because intolerance of culturally insensitive people is only going to beget more intolerance from the culturally insensitive.

isn't that advocating no consequences here?


Context should determine the consequences. Did I attack someone for their homosexuality or their affiliation to Judaism? Not at all. Do I get attacked for my beliefs, affiliations and nationality? Repeatedly and the only thing that pisses me off about that is I'm not allowed to respond in kind, otherwise it's all fair game here in the Outhouse.

Isn't that the part about the Experience we all hope to survive?
