Yes when Fried's world runs out of vampires and watermelons and it's simply laundry day for those orange socks he starts to attack your usage of sentences. Yes Frigidley I know I keep misspelling your name but those annoying vampires keep bumping into my keyboard.
well dikweed which btw very appropriate name and it's not for you to decide what is considered something, as per fridley it's you that needs to pull the fingers out of your ears and your head out of your ass, we hear the words spewing from your mouth, we are just smart enough to know that what your saying is not only one sided but is backed up by nonsense.
Should American Indians be offended by portrayals of antique guns because their ancestors were often killed by whites using them? If someone beat my brother with a baseball bat should I view the bat as a symbol to be banned?
I believe those are your words Fried, you are listing ridiculous examples trying to convince people that in no way should they see this as a hate symbol, who are you to think you have any right to tell people that just because you don't see it as a hate symbol then it's not. Instead of listing examples that in no way makes any sense, you should try listing some facts pal.
That's the problem Frid, YOU are ONLY concerned with YOUR thoughts, YOUR views. At what point are you going to stop and think hey others are involved and their opinions matter? Just because you don't see how it offends someone doesn't mean that it doesn't offend anyone. You keep suggesting that it's everyone else that needs to see things how you're seeing them, and yet you refuse to even consider anyone else in your narrow minded thinking. And your comment about when you see a noose you personally think of the Old West, do you think everyone else sees it that way too? because I know I don't, and I wouldn't expect everyone to see it the same as I do. If it was a more obvious hate symbol like say a burning cross, would your views still be the same? Why should the symbol of hate be obvious to everyone to be validated as it being one? Everyone in the world has different thoughts, views, and opinions. It's not about majority, no one should be discredited just because EVERYONE is not offended by this.
Fridley, I'm not seeing anything you're saying as more than just absurd ramblings, I see you think you have points to what you're saying, I just don't see them. You are focused on what does NOT offend you, it's not about what doesn't offend someone it's about what does. You can write all the pointless moronic examples you want, it's not going to make me question whether or not this offends someone. Instead of trying to take away peoples rights to be offended by this, you should concentrate on coming up with a valid explanation of what would make you think that it's ok to take peoples rights away, just because you don't have the same views.
To address your first idiotic statement about me offending you, It didn't in any way offend me, so it doesn't matter that you think I was, because I just don't see it being offensive, see how that works? I know what you're saying is based on your ignorance, but to what extent should people think that just because you're ignorant it's ok to dismiss one group of people, which you're clearly doing. Just because you're not in that group doesn't make it any less important.
I completely agree Katarina! why would seeing a black person in a store near watermelon even bring up this outrageously offensive options of what to do, do you honestly think a black person would see you near a Willie Nelson CD rack and say what should I do? should I walk to the other side of the store? will this white man attack me if I get too close to that CD rack? absolutely not, so what would make you think it's ok to even assume that buying a watermelon near a black person would be an obstacle for you to over come.
