Even less okay.
...discuss topics other than your defensive and overstated-to-the-point-of-redundancy opinions on what minorities have a right to feel offended by.

Is empath a white person who likes taking the maximum offence possible for any comment - on behalf of minorities? Thus derailing threads while they grandstand and nitpick over words rather than ideas? Is that what it's saying? A lot of people up top seem to be having trouble defining the call out.... [more]

Simple Answer to a Simple Question

OK. Thanks.

So what is the call out saying?

it would be maybe nice to let it die down instead of ramp up?

That's racist!

There's a 12 hour time difference. This all unfolded while I was in bed. Not ramping it up at all. :)

Or maybe idiots shouldn't be in the swing arc side of a door when approaching it? They will try harder in future.

Just to avoid any fresh grar, I wasn't calling empath or anyone an idiot. I was just attempting a smartass perspective for the door-in-face analogy.

For the win.

I remember reading a blog post a while back by a Taiwanese-American woman about how infuriating she found it when people seemed to feel perfectly justified in assuming that her (white) boyfriend clearly was only with her because...

No way. In a brazilian years. Would I get my face hit with a door. Even if there was a charging buffalo on the other side. Would never happen. Ever.

Very silly argument. I really hope you're joking.

Aslo see jessamyn's comment: it would be maybe nice to let it die down instead of ramp up?

Will this thread be as large and ponderous as the v.recent languagehat MeTa thread? You ask, I decide.

yeah, because that's just what this thread was missing. what the shit is even wrong with you.
You clown.

Firstly, I explained it was a joke IN LIGHT OF JESSAMYN'S COMMENT.
Secondly, It's a quote from a farking movie that every single person in the Western world has seen.
Thirdly, "just what this thread was missing"??? What the shit is even wrong with you? This thread is well and truly in the silly stage.... [more]

Hyperbole and a barf
Maybe a post about depression isn't the best place to pull the "depression is self-centred" schtick, even if it's to make some sort of point.

What happened to the "you have set your post free, you cannot control it" mantra? How many comments on other threads vehemently disagree with the FPP? Lots and lots and lots.

It's like walking on bloody eggshells around here. Some topics ya just have to nod and... [more]

Related question: What's with using "we" to describe the Occupy mob?
posted to MetaTalk by uncanny hengeman at 2:43 AM on October 26, 2011

Did you actually read the question?
What about questions like: Can you think of any songs where the singer includes his full name in the lyrics?

And then a huge whack of people answered "song doesn't have the full name, but..."

That kind of behaviour happens a lot. Right or wrong? You ask, I decide!

Fark me, dude. You think I'm that dumb to make an easily-verifiable false statement on the interiments?

It was about how Aussies pronounce aluminium correctly. Americans do not. Our chat started here on Metafilter and morphed into a post on his blog.

"Sizzlechest" is the unimaginative putdown

Fail. I use it as a term of endearment most of the time. Never a putdown. Er... you do realise you can disagree with someone and have a light hearted stab at them without it being a putdown? That's possible in your universe?

You gotta lighten up there, sizzlechest.

Well, just the other night I've come home after three months of constant grind and travel and I went snivellin', I went crawling around to my girlfriend's house.

And she came down hard upon me and she ground her finger into my breastbone and she said, she said "you don't make me feel like I'm a woman any more" and "you don't make me feel like I'm a woman any more, you don't make me feel like I'm a woman any more!"

Not so fast, Louie.
It annoys me when someone asks how to punch someone whose house they're eating dinner at on short notice and they title the question "Paste Host Post Haste?"

Crikey, that was hard work. Took me about 4 goes.

It annoys me when someone asks how to make the perfect pizza for the final dish of a WWII French Underground themed dinner party and they title the question "Pizza Resistance."

Of course if this event is a tire sale, then you've both been totally owned.

Or if it's a Saved by the Bell type reunion event.

There's no confessing and guessing while I'm expressing myself. It's crazy to see people be what society wants them to be. But not me.

Ruthless is the way to go. They know. Others say rhymes that fail to be original, or they kill where the hip-hop starts, forget about the ghetto and rap for the pop charts.

Some MeFites curse at home but scared to use profanity when up on the microphone. Yeah, they want reality.

Yeah. I'm from that country. Even in commerce circles you can drop a loud F bomb in the finance cube farm and no one will say a thing.

No, it's more about the pattern of similar straw men that preceded that.

Sorta gathered that with the telling-off she got. But it's THE GREY. A place 'specially set aside to bitch about each other’s attitudes. So: stiff shit.

Plus what taff said. I had no idea of her colourful straw man history. Guess I gotta take your word for it with the whole "straw man" thing vs. astute observations that might get on your nerves.... [more]

Good grief. Talk about stone deaf. For the 36th time in about the 12th thread on this subject: No.
