First topic message reminder :

I don’t know why this seems so hard for people to follow.

What is the point of clicking on a thread, reading the OP and then deciding you’re going to reply in a way that means you’re not addressing the actual point because of who posted it up?

There’s no point in deciding what someone’s “agenda” is and then posting a reply to that effect, that’s not debating, is it? Perhaps they do have an agenda - who knows - but the point of a debate is to address the post not the poster.

Let’s all try it and see what happens.

There should be a comma after "The Devil".

His name used to autocorrect to "head" - another childish joke I'm afraid, as in DYKhead.

'Geranium' used to show up when someone posted the C word that a couple of the so called men are so fond of calling the female posters on here.

Actually I'm glad that doesn't happen now....show the creeps up for what they are.

It's a no no around here too Maddog.
I have never heard a woman called that name in real life, and the big brave 'men' who do it online wouldn't dare to face a woman and say it.

But that's keyboard warriors for you.

Maybe. But it appears to be a more acceptable word over there and in Australia. Maybe not towards women in particular, but just general usage.

It was one of the first things I noticed when posting with Brits.

How the hell is making fun of a president or other politician making fun of his/her supporters at the same time?

They're not one and the same. Trump is separate from his supporters, and to make fun of him is making fun of his supporters no more than to make fun of Obama is to make fun of his supporters.

It's not making fun of them.  It is suggesting that they support an idiot.  Like I said, it sets a tone

But I'm a huge proponent of private property rights and this isn't my property. Nor do I really care that much.  This is just me mulling over shit out loud and on a forum like I sometimes do.

He suggeted raking leaves in forests as a way to stop the spread of wildfire.
He claimed to know a lot about planes and backed this up by saying they're expensive (no shit).
He think stealth planes are literally invisible.
He felt defending his dick size was a prioroty in a presidential debate.

This is a fraction of a fraction of his idiocy.

He supporters may not have voted him in BECAUSE he's an idiot, but despite the fact.

But he is an idiot.

He's not an intellectual, by any means. He's poorly informed. Not very aware of the rest of the world.

But idiot is a bit harsh.

And back to the original topic in terms of the autocorrect of his name. I wouldn't call that an act of great intellect. I mean I might do something like that for a week or two for a good laugh, but at some point, I'd undo it.

Has it been like that since before he won, or was it in reaction to him winning?

But that's just me.

The autocorrect happens when people quote from outside sources too, so it looks really stupid. You could go in and correct it before you post it, but nobody should have to do that.

No, it was Trump who set the tone on how to treat a potus who many people voted for.
He disrespected the previous potus every day in a very malicious, personal way.
Called him a ''fake, fraud, liar'' who wasn't entitled to be president - on the basis of that bogus birthist nonsense.

People can say those things about him without having their posts autocorrected to something childish. Trump didn't call himself an orange gibbon or whatever.

Yeah - and why should Trump not be insulted?
He was the most prolific insulter on God's green earth.
Insulted women in a very personal way, using menstruation and fatness as terms of abuse
Insulted golden families whose sons were killed in active service in the US army
Insulted airforcemen who get taken as POW after their plane is shot down
Used twitter to post Childish tit for tat insults to everyone


I have no problems sinking down to his base levels.
And to anyone crying into their beer over him being disrespected I'd say these 3 immortal words: > >

It's up to you if you want to be childish, but others shouldn't be forced to call him "Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon" by default because of the autocorrect. If Obama's name had been autocorrected to call him a gibbon, I have no doubt there would be screams of racism. It's also altering the quotes from media sources to say something they didn't actually say.

You call an American woman a cunt, she can shoot you and get acquitted.     Cool

It's a no no around here too Maddog.
I have never heard a woman called that name in real life, and the big brave 'men'  who do it online wouldn't dare to face a woman and say it.

But that's keyboard warriors for you.

The word's origins are probably Old Norse, so we can blame the Vikings!

It progressed via the "low" forms of German and Dutch (kunta or kunto) to be adopted more widely in Britain in the Middle English language period between the Norman Conquest and  the 13th century.

Language is ever changing, it's still a word not often used towards a woman in public (not in my world anyway) but no doubt, as so many people vent online, in film, in books, it will eventually become as meaningless as the F word has.

Already I very much doubt whether anyone is deeply shocked when they see women being called a C on the forum.
It does show the poster who resorts to insulting this way  to be an ignorant, misogynistic, disrespectful oaf who has probably been rebuffed by women throughout life ....imo. Smile

https://babe.net/2016/07/01/people-offended-word-cunt-psychologist-explains-4332

And yet the male sexual organ in the form of dick, cock and prick are always acceptable to use. In fact there is many more used to demote the male sexual organ as an offensive and derogative term to people

Hence the constant double standard

I am not offended at any of these words, as again the view to be offended is down to how the individual feels offended

So if you dont like one word that denotes a sexual organ being used. If you use others, that describe the male sex organ. You have no leg to stand on and are in fact hypocritical.

People also never object to the word twat, which has exactly the same sexual organ meaning.

I know very well the reasons how and why the word Cunt can be used, but I simple use the word. To show up the utter hypocrisy by some of the fragile hypocritical female gang.


Maybe the point might start to hit home one day

I dont use most of the other words you mention either.

You use the words (and plenty others) not to make any social point at all. It's clear that in many debates you just cant control yourself when someone disagrees with you.
When you  start with the insults and abuse, it's a sure fire indication that not only have you  lost the argument, but you KNOW you  have lost and thats why you resort to the insults.

People who use the C word are just common and vulgar.

I see the points went way over your cognitive ability to think rationally on this

You can think all you like about me having lost a debate resorting to abuse

That never actually answered my points does it?

Like I said, you all live by a double standard on the use of offensive words around sexual organs

I knew you would avoid the points at hand

The internet does tend to bring out the big brave bully in a minority of posters.
I wonder (if they were honest with themselves) how they would feel if a man called their wife, mother, daughter that word in real life?

So would you call your husband, brother, son, father etc a cock, dick, prick, penis, knob, tool, plonker etc?

You still haven't answered the question. I will put it in very simple terms..

How would YOU feel or react if a man insulted your wife, mother, daughter by calling her the c word in front of you?

I imagine when you use the word to me and others on here, that's the reaction most decent posters feel....you are laughed at and pitied.
In real life you wouldn't get off so lightly....but you already know that.

Decent posters?

That is debatable and would have no qualms calling someone acting stupid, a cunt

In fact i have called people a cunt for being stupid and nothing happened to me

So if you laugh at me and pity me, what is your moaning all about then?

I suggest you move on instead of whinging all the time

Its really pathetic

My Wife was called a cunt, many, many years ago.
The offender spent 2 weeks in hospital, and I was put on report by my CO. He fined me 1 days pay !

Nicko, in the real world any man who would not react if some creep insulted his wife, daughter, or mother by calling her the c word is either a misogynistic arsehole himself ... or a wimp.
