full retard indeed
I must be slow as I don't understand the message, this PSA is so totally slow.
Its not acceptable to laugh at people that are different anymore. Got it?
Except for furries. Seriously, fuck them.
Glee is like a litmus test for whether or not someone sucks/is profoundly, profoundly boring
Does that mean you're a retard or does that mean I'm a faggot?
WHO WANTS DESSERT
I love minorities! I love them so much I'm thinking about moving to California so I can be a minority myself!
I'm just going to start calling them spazzes again.
Well then I feel while we are on the topic everyone should know it's not acceptable to call physeter catodons "sperm whales" anymore. I find that offensive.
"Retard" is bad as a noun. What about "retarded" as an adjective?
|Adham Nu'man |
Don't be rude to people and don't insult them unless you have to. When you have to, don't insult them based on gender, ethnicity, physical or mental disabilities etc. Got it, but this shit about "the N word" and "the R word" and "the F word" is just fucking moronic (yes, I almost wrote retarded right there). Fuck anyone who uses any of these euphemisms.
This is kind of retarded. The difference between "retarded" and nigger or kike or whatever is that nigger and kike are derogatory insults based on superficial, inaccurate stereotypes.
Retarded people, on the other hand, really aren't that bright. That's why they're retarded.
The difference is that 'retarded' is used to apply broadly to things that are bad or ignorant, and it's a medical condition people suffer from. It's like people calling things they don't like 'gay'. It's not wrong to say 'gay', or recognize that people are that way, only to use it as a substitute word for things you scorn and hate.
I'm not picking a side by the way, I'm just saying the argument against using the word isn't as ridiculous as it's portrayed.
Right, but there's absolutely no relationship between "gay" and "things I dislike", unless you think "gay" has negative connotations.
"Retarded", on the other hand, is *supposed* to reference someone/something that's not too bright. Even if you run away from "retarded", the very concept is insulting to non-mentally handicapped people. That's why every variant of retarded has remained a valid insult for normal people: idiot, moron, stupid, dumb, etc.
So, now that I can't say retarded any more, how long before the dumbasses make a PSA about not calling people dumbasses?
We need some sort of super-insult that covers race, sexual orientation, and disability.
My idea; nigfatard.
Bonus: you even get the word "fat" in there!
SHIT! I meant butt-ugly motherfucktards
It was an interesting decision to choose someone who has a condition that places them under the factual medical description of "retarded," thus demonstrating the sole time where it should be acceptable to use it.
Also, glee is a retarded show for faggots.
The worst thing about Glee is the aura of sanctimony that hovers around it, the way a lot of the shows fans and defenders try to claim this pile of empty fluff has moral heft and teaches important lessons about tolerance and you know, stuff when it's really just a stupid, empty-headed overblown mashup of a teen soap opera meets High School Musical meets America's Got Talent.
This is so gay.
|Meatsack Jones |
Is fucktard bad as well?
Oh yeah, Glee? What about your really offensive indulgence in the stereotype that all out gay men are into musicals and fashion? Hmmmm?
This is fucking retarded.
There's such a thing as discretion, and you exercise it in social situations because that's what reasonable human beings do.
Who honestly thinks that in a casual social situation that its reasonable to spout derisive and inflammatory epithets to others? Who is this threat to society?
Proponents of newspeak make my trigger finger itchy.
This is all well and good, but I couldn't understand what the mongoloid at the end was saying, so I feel like part of the message may have been lost on me.
neh-heh-heh gonna post faggot and get those pc knuckleheads STEAMIN
oh shit almost forgot to set the tivo
It doesn't really do any good to try to get words banned. People will just come up with substitutes. Don't like inner city ghetto kids because they're rude and don't act like they have any goddamn common sense? Well, don't call them niggers, no sir. Call them Mondays. Everyone hates Mondays. It even sounds friendly. No one's going to ban that name.

"reliant on autotune?"
|Maggot Brain |
She makes a good point, most of these terms are out dated. We now call them the "urbain market."
Can I still call you a mongoloid?
Enjoy posted a link to a mysterious thing called "bo-news," which apparently hates poetv, and then somehow deleted his post. I want answers.
I'm not sure what's sadder: the craziness going on over at POEN or the fact that a bunch of people made a little internet clubhouse to bitch about it and talk about all the people they don't like. (that they have never met in real life)
this clubhouse must be pretty sweet if the three worst people here are teaming up to talk shit on it
aw come on, spike, you can be part of the club too! i'm sure they'll give you somewhere to hang your wall scrolls and replica katanas!
Glee was amusing for about 5 minutes but then it just gave up and reveled itself as sanctimonious pablum punctuated with autotuned renditions of the world's shittiest pop music--performed by 40 year olds masquerading as children.

The first half of the first season was great. The second half of the first season had some funny moments.
The second season was crap for the most part. They got rid of the core of the show which was working musical numbers into the plot line. Now all the numbers are in class and when the show isn't about Sue it is pretty much awful.
All of these dumb arguments come up every time people asked to stop being called a certain word. How about we try to follow an easy rule: if you're not a member of a group a word refers to, you don't get to decide if that word is offensive.
All right. I'm just calling everybody goddamn motherfucking assholes from now on.
