Just curious as to why?

just because of the make up of the board... there are a number of gay people, a number of jewish people, and a number of black people who frequent the board. If he wants to be accepted into the community not insulting a portion of the board is a good idea...

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:


I know we've had some disagreements but I think you're good people Keb, so I don't want you to take this the wrong way but I fucking dare you to offer some of that advice to your Gay, Jewish and/or other friends who belong to minority groups.

Ironically enough, culturally insensitive white people are becoming a minority too so I guess we can expect special powers any day now. :smt005

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.



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?


i've said this to a few people, if you feel that you are constantly being "attacked" for your beliefs WHY continue to post on this board??? The majority of the posters here have been posting together for YEARS and know enough about each other to know when to make a joke and when not to. A lot of people have found things you've said insulting even if you didn't mean to say them that way.

What's frustrating is how people go about tolerance. People only apply it selectively, but act as though they are standing on some moral pedestal.

I've yet to meet anyone who is anti-racism, has respect for all faiths, believes in equality, or any of the other stuff people claim to believe in. It's a circle jerk, and the end result creates more resentment for the groups some claim to try to protect from criticism.

If people would stop trying to force others to think like they claim to (very rarely do they apply any of these concepts to their own life), things might be better.

Yeah I don't really have a problem with you either even if I don't agree with your views.

I think the point I would try to make is that there's a time and place for the offensive jokes. I don't use the "n-word" in public and I don't use it with my friends. The only person I've ever joked about it with is my best friend who is also black, but we have a pretty deep bond and understand each other well.

Same goes for a lot of us on the Outhouse. We all know each other and sharing our experiences has allowed us to learn each others' boundaries. I know that Erik telling me about his experiences being bullied and tormented for being gay, and his extreme dislike for people using derogatory terms for gay people have made me more conscious about how I use the term. I've never actually met Erik but interactions on the OH and facebook have let me connect with him enough to respect him as a person and for that I will watch what I write.

I think it's great that you're sharing your opinions and we're getting to know you, even if people don't like what you're saying. The only thing I would caution everybody about is being labeled a troll without doing any actual trolling.

See here's the thing, Really I'm not complaining about racism. I'm complaining about you being a total whack job who is making no sense regarding what socialism actually is. You're excuse is that I'm a socialist because I complained on the internet and thought I would share an absurd story with my internet friends, that's not socialism. That's the internet. The fact that thunderstorm crawled out of his cave to post in this thread should tell you how out of left field you've made this topic.

In fact I will once again point out that his sanction had nothing to do with what he said, It had to do with his actions in a class. He said what he said after his sanction was rendered. I was just surprised and since I am in fact Jewish I was severely caught off guard. Here's the thing I was thinking about it today my personal beliefs have nothing to do with how I interpret the code of conduct or render sanctions in cases.

So again, you have no idea what a socialist is. You're a fuckwad. Starlord is my favorite fudge packer(sorry Erik) and Keb is my nigger.
