It's because most people don't give a fug. I know what you mean I researched this in libraries (my pathetic school library) when I was fourth grade.
i just don't get why calling someone a bitch (or any other slur) is totally ok around here but calling a person a moron for doing so isn't. saying that it's only ok because the person that's being attacked doesn't post here is in fact a total cop out. if you're going to use inflammatory language and/or be a sexist/racist pig, you should be prepared for blowback. of course the same conservative dipshits who whine about "political correctness" trip over themselves to report my posts when i rightfully call them moronic for dropping irrelevant, gendered slurs
i'm aware that i use curse words and apparently that upsets the delicate sensibilities of pigs, but i don't even report slurs, as i prefer to shame rather than censor sexists and racists. what's problematic is that we've got people around here who have posted abso-fuging-lutely abhorrent, racist, sexist poo, and plenty of posts in which i was "personally attacked," however the only times i've seen the alleged rules enforced around here were when
a ) i called out a person who has a propensity for objectifying women, pointing out that it's not only wrong, but strange that he would have such high standards when he is in fact a fat sack of poo who literally accused a rape victim of wanting it (this actually happened. the exact quote is: "I got the impression on the TV story that the girl was fully aware of what she was doing... she was kind of doing the victim thing
, but 16 is old enough to know what's going on. I'm sure lots of kids are taken of advantage of like this, but I don't think that's what was going on in this situation.
b ) i called out a person who couldn't criticize a woman without using a gendered insult, resulting in like 5 pages of posts in this very thread mansplaining why wench is a totally ok thing to call a woman for no real reason, but "moron" is wayyy over the line
like sheikh said pages ago, it's a good ol' boys club around here and they can't handle having their fuged up worldview challenged. they want an echo chamber, and i enjoy watching them squirm when their foundational beliefs are challenged. problem is if you embarrass certain people too many times, they run to their bff moderators (see the post earlier about noted sexist ncbiscuit kowtowing to kurb)
