Quoting mltm

I agree with alameda on this.

 

If this kind of jokes will not be tolerated and will be classified as sexist, then it should apply to jokes about both genders, or we need to modify the rules to "sexism against women". Otherwise, the rules itself will be sexist.

 

 do you really think that cynics post sounded like a joke to you?

Quoting lady in red

 

 

Well 4,10 and 15 are certainly true of my husband!  - I thought it was quite funny and in lots of threads on this post men have given as good as they have got.  But cynics post was aimed to annoy on the back of his earlier posts in other threads - thats my opinion anyway

 

Yes, but a bif difference is the fact he was reacting to an insult...there is a difference. Different people have different tolerances to abusive behaviour. If you don´t like being insulted, don´t throw them around. "What goes around comes around. "

 

I live in CA, and have had extensive training in harassment issues...and I can tell you, something like this posted in a work place could easily be an expensive court case.

 This is a bit rich coming from you catwoman. You have been peddling anti male sexist propaganda on here for years. I remember one contribution which even embarassed another prominent feminist here.

You are not exactly an authority on this issue, but you have the right to disagree. Unfortunately you will have to deal with it.

 Put up with it for another thousand years, and perhaps we will be even, and take your view on board...

Quoting alameda

 

 

I agree cynicmysitc´s post did go over...but the original post in this thread was a provacative and sexist post. What if it were reversed? It´s insulting to men...actually, it´s insulting to women too. What goes around comes around. I mean, really....look at these. I don´t find them funny at all.

4. We don´t look like a frog in a blender when dancing.
10. We have the ability to dress ourselves.
11. We can talk to the opposite sex without having to picture them naked.
15. We can make comments about how silly men are in their presence because they aren´t listening anyway

 

As with everything else, there´s a difference between joking about a dancing frog, and ´joking´ about using and abusing women. These two are not even comparable. If anybody said anything even closely as racist as cynic´s post was sexist, few people would have issues discerning how offensive it is, especially that we live in a sexist and racist world.

what makes me laugh is that none of these sensitive beings like alameda, canli, bydand, libra or mltm has expressed a tiny protest or digust when the very cynic was spewing such hatred and personal attacks on everyone around. opposite they enjoyed him.

not mentioning canli who just ignores posts that contain curses.

Oh femm....Get real....you know you provoked him! You followed him around multiple threads harassing him and lowering the level of discourse. He warned you numerous times, but you kept on....

 

Oh..........the bullfighter doesn´t complain when he´s gored by the bull.....he knows he provoked him.

 

You are quite masterful at it.
