inorite? I was so stunned, I really wasn't sure how to reply to that. I ended up just not, because... wow.


yep, some people, im hoping this kid is a 13 year old, just so im not sitting at home worried how our next set of adults released in to the world is going to destroy us all..
He's been around since 2007, I'm afraid that's not the case.


Shiet..

While youre all voting on the color of the sky to see if it changes, maybe you'd like to provide something of substance to the argument other than semantics. MY post, at least, did not dwell on profanity as the primary subject. Immaturity is more than a choice of words, after all. Thank you for exposing that within yourselves.

Irrelevant profanities aside, OP is spot on. Attempting to police the image of a gun is much like blaming videogames for violence. You remove a safe outlet for aggression and expression, then sit there dumbfounded and question why individuals resort to violence.

Its's like some jackass proposing that opposing profanity will lead to a more civil climate. KINDLY remove your heads from your anuses PLEASE!

I think zero tolerance policies on guns has gone out of control. "Gun related" is the new "hate crime" and I think the government is trying to indoctrinate kids into having an irrational fear of guns.
In the future, the ATF will kick in your door and shoot you because you have movies in your computer with guns in them the AI will be able to extrapolate a 3D printing model to produce illegal firearms using your printer. Or maybe not. But they will shoot you if you have "digital contraband" such as 3D models of dangerous weapons. Thought crime will become an all time high. Profiling computer geeks capable of figuring out how to print a plastic box with a spring inside will lead to mass arrests...

I know this sounds insane, but this is what will happen, unless people realize banning guns - or anything for that matter, in a time period when we are crossing the digital-tangible barrier is pure hysterics.

LOL, listen, why dont you take a minute and really think about how you sound.
First,
*your
*Centric would not be used in this case. as it is most widely accepted as a sentence starter if used in one at all.
*substanceless is not a word.
*Don't

Pretty much this. The stance of most government-funded education programs is the stance of the government. This stance takes precedent over actual learning; hence the willingness to ban or suspend the learner for the sake of the political agenda.

I.E. These fags prefer their propaganda over their students' education, so when the two collide the student suffers for it.

While you're at it, can you pass a similar message to Tennessee before it get's a mind again to criminalize pictures of nude women or requires teachers to rat out gay students to their parents?

Yeah, remember when i posted a thread a while back, telling you faggots about how your education system is a political posturing exercise masking as a center of knowledge and research?

Remember how you faggots called me a conspiracy theorist and an idiot for telling you that social policy takes precedent over learning in your government mandated education systems?

Well, welcome to the AIDS circus you Gay Clowns.



just wow
inorite? I was so stunned, I really wasn't sure how to reply to that. I ended up just not, because... wow.

I got marked for "flaming" for responding to him.
So apparently you shouldn't reply at all, but hit "report."
He isn't going to acknowledge the difference between profanity and psychological indoctrination through figurative speech anyhow. Because of reddit atheist superstar Penn Jillette (making it ironic that he uses the putdown "circle jerk" in a recent post.) Penn doesn't even conflate metaphor to superstitious naughty words, but does misguidedly defend the term "cocksucker" as if it were in the latter category. I can't blame the guy though, it looks that 7th grade English education is hard to come by these days.

So, anyhow, report > reply. It's obviously against the ToS

This person has made a hateful and insulting comment towards my intellect based on inflammatory assumptions about my character. I demand compensation in no less than 4 account banspost deletions and an entire thread devoted to my fractured ego.

ITT we argue about irrelevant profanity and cry when we dont get our way.

EDIT: Also, we discover why faggotry doesn't disappear even when you try your best to ban the word f**.

Quote:
Language versus linguistics.
A sociolinguistic approach to problems of language and interaction target the aspects of
social problems that give people a common basis to understanding and communicating with each
other (Chambers, 1995; Fasold, 1984). The origins and uses of initial language implementation
have as great of an effect on social problems and inequality as do the perceptions around, and
stereotyping resulting from the linguistic (i.e. tonal, phonetic, semantic, etc.) variations of
genders, races or sexualities (Fasold, 1984; Myhill, 2004; Skutnabb-Kangas, 2000).
Although much of the relevant theoretical research done on language in society has more to do
with language groups and minority languages (Adegbija, 1994; Chambers 1995; Downes, 1998;
Fasold, 1984; Heller, 2008; Ruanni Tupas, 2000; Skutnabb-Kangas, 2000), this paper deals to a
greater extent with the role that semantics and lexical choice play in determining levels of social
inequality.
The varied degrees to which language can be used to attack and isolate an individual or a
collective identity come from the extent of that language’s embedded nature in historical social
inequality. There must be a common, or minimally affirmed belief in the power and subjectivity
of a word or locution in order for it’s definition to hold meaning (Chambers, 1995; Downes,
199 cool . As noted by Apostolidou: “Insult is not unilateral. It incorporates, reflects, and produces
conditions of exclusion and intolerance; it incubates social investments made on “othering”; it
serves the appeasement of social tensions; it alleviates the vivid representation of
awkwardness” (2010:43).
In this way, discursive violence and the power of an insult is to subordinate not only the
targeted population, but by connotation all those people who are associated with some of the
words held within (Apostolidou, 2010; Downes, 1998; McElhinny, 1999; Skutnabb-Kangas,
2000). In the case of a homosexual male being called an “accomplished girl” (Apostolidou,
2010:47), this not only carries connotation for the male because of the derogatory way in which
the term is used, but also suggests that there is something negative about being an ‘accomplished
girl’, even for a woman. This is to say that it is not only a matter of how language perpetuates
existing social inequality, but how that inequality is used as the basis for limiting the
development of both language and human capacity in the future (Apostolidou, 2010). It is from
this basis that we construct the ideal norms and values of social relations and interpersonal
interactions that lead to the socialization of identity and the normalizing of certain gender, race
and sexuality hierarchies.
