Insults
« on: April 28, 2010, 08:20:50 PM »
I created this thread to avoid the needless continuation of going off topic on my "Mean things I say on youtube" thread. Have at it.

Good idea.

If I really have to break it down to that level, calling someone retarded in the sense of them doing/saying something stupid (Not actually suffering from mental retardation) is complete different from calling someone a Nazi, Jew, N word, etc. Those are 2 completely different things and doesn't need to/can't serve as an example for anything even remotely related to my actions.

And back to what I said, insults and racism are two completely different things. Racism would be of a higher degree then an insult (ex. you're stupid, you're retarded, you're slow).

I don't categorize racism and insults as the same thing.

(Yes, by definition "retard" can also be substituted for calling someone an idiot. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&defl=en&q=define:retard&ei=nM_YS5fKBMP68AaHroDfBQ&sa=X&oi=glossary_definition&ct=title&ved=0CAYQkAE )

Edit: Please don't repost in here if its the continuation of the conversation we're currently having. I made another debate topic especially for this:
http://freebirdgames.com/forum/index.php?topic=2402.0


I assume it was a mistake to quote Squall's post. I said it before and I say it again, I didn't say racism = insult. I don't lump these two matters together. I know they are different things. I'm not stupid. I just meant that it's insulting to me. Just because racism is insulting to me, doesn't mean that I think an insult is the same as racism. Maybe I just expressed/phrased my thoughts wrongly (I'm a foreigner aft all). I see where're coming from, though.

I just wanted to clarify that I'm not stupid. Although your post sounded like you were trying to explain a little girl why racism isn't the same as an insult (which made me feel silly, because my posts made you think that I "categorize racism and insults as the same thing" which I don't). :seraisweatdrop:

Maybe I read it wrong, I have a habit of doing that but not to be off topic I'll shut up now.

(It's okay. I have the talent to express myself messily, thus I'm somewhat used to misunderstandings (they're still annoying as hell, though.)) :seraisweatdrop:

I hate when someone says that "You're sticking to them" if you try to befriend them and then the whole class calls you "sticky guy". It's like an insult x5.

If you want to keep this in the Debates section, please clarify the actual subject/question being debated on in the first post rather than just having it as a place to settle something from somewhere else.
