also why are the n bomb, wh*** (synonymous with wench), and other slurs censored yet we have literally seen a poster talking about how "the (derogatory term for japanese people) deserved to be nuked" without getting banned and a poster who is likely compensating for the loss of something in his life (perhaps his hairline?)*** freely tosses around bitch like it's a totally acceptable and not in any way sexist thing to do



***this could be any poster and is not in any way directed at you or your receding hairline


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)

The article I quoted stated that they were not interested in giving State money for the stadium.....your quote said they met (and nothing more).

You can just stay here and be dumb....it is amusing to the rest of us.


More work has been done to help kids in Africa re: AIDS than ever did under Clinton's regime. So don't come at me with the santimonious bs.

This jack-A started a thread with my name in it. Don't you be a little b.


I swear....most of your posts sound like the ramblings of someone on a bad acid trip.


....aaaand as usual Cantrell, either intentionally or just because he's dense, completely spins the "entitlement" discussion to fit his world view. I haven't seen one person say that entitlements for people in need are a bad thing. The problem with the entitlement system is that its rife with abuse... But you go ahead with your hate of everyone that has done well in life and your blind trust of govt you sad, bitter person.


dear kurb,

please explain why these personal attacks are ok (btw 2 of these 4 aren't directed at me, and all 4 are located on the front page of this forum)

If it weren't for name calling, the Tbox would be reduced to arguments/debates over controversial subjects. (sarcasm)

Would also cut thread lengths by about 70%. Most threads like this one go from OP subject to name calling within the first 2 pages, then thread is derailed and all hell breaks loose. Nature of the beast here. If you want true discourse and debate, you are probably barking up the wrong tree here on the Huddle.

So, who was called a wench in the first place? Is it the snarky comment leaving pastor?
