Dude, she posted that a WEEK ago.

messiestobjects

Oh I'm sorry, is a week not considered recent anymore? Ah kids and their ADD these days.

Heather

A#1) My attention span can kick your attention span's ass.
B#3) What were we talking about?

Miss Luongo

I just heard a story about women in another country who were treated by all of the men as infantile little creatures. As a result, all of the women baby talked and acted like infantile little creatures. And this is what words have the power to do.

Christy

I start this admitting I am in a poor position to discuss it - being that I did not read the wominfant article... I am hesitant to believe that it is the words alone that cause these women to act like infantspermreceptacles. I would think that their actions are brought about through a combination of words (with vocal intonation), treatment (being treated as children) and behavioral/social reinforcement. I am sure if they fail to act like they're two while they're getting pounded in their unlubed asses they probably are abused by their men and ostracized by society. That in itself is would be impetus to act and speak like a sexy little toddler bitch.

Miss Luongo

That's the thing about words, they're symbolic. It's never just the words.

messiestobjects

Yes you're both right. This is how it went down in Iraq. Not to say Iraqi women are stupid or completely infantile, exactly, but the men like their women dependent, and so the women tended to ask for things in a sing/song baby voice, because the men think it's cute and then the women get what they want. And uppity Iraqi women are not really respected in the family sense.
To be fair, before Bush allowed a fundamentalist Shiite regime to begin asserting their small-dicked patriarchical ideas of a perfect society, Iraq was actually extremely progressive, the most progressive in the Middle East actually, regarding Women.

Heather

I, for one, have been irreparably damaged by this blog entry. J'accuse!

Cristy

There's a spanish slur for whities, too. Bollio, it's a kind of white bread. So, we're still 'crackers' in a universal way. What is it with food references and racial slurs anyway? Mexicans are 'bean eaters', black folks have fried chicken & watermelon, indians have filafel and what do we do? We pretend we're everyone else hidin' out in their restraunts!

messiestobjects

Ooohh, you just reminded me of Gringo. Gringo is a good one.

Heather

"I'm in ur restaurants, pretendin' to be ethnic."

messiestobjects

I see you've blown up your blog again...

scott

the chinese call whitey 'guai lo'- it means 'white ghost'. I think their ethnic slur for me is kindof cool, I like being a white ghost.

Heather

Wow! You sure can see. Must be all the fancy surgeries.

Miss Luongo

Asians call us "butter stinkers" because we smell like dairy.

Cristy

That's a lot better than 'stinky butt.' Or even 'butt breath.'

Jim

My two favorite racial slurs of all time:

-Jewbag (Huh?)

-Mooncricket (Que?)

I laugh every time I hear 'em.

messiestobjects

Mooncricket? Who does that slam on? And who calls them that? I need to know.
And, I wonder if that's why Butter 08 named their album Butterfucker. If people of colour went around calling whitey butterfuckers, there might be some approach to equality in the race wars, because butterfucker is slightly offensive to me.
Except, of course, black people eat butter too. Damn slanty eyes callin' me butterfucker.

messiestobjects

Heather, sour snark does not become you. Tell the truth; how did Gary goad you this time?

Heather

You know what becomes me most? Sour butter. I gave myself a year to blog LAST YEAR, and by my estimation, a year from last year equals one year. Am I wrong? Anyone?

Gary

my goad hasn't been anywhere near her

Heather

Indeed.

messiestobjects

You seriously gave yourself one year? Huh, don't remember that. Well played, my friend, well played!

Heather

Word. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for the pre-drinking drink festivities. Gotta limber up first. You know how it is.

Volguus

At my last job in the US the VP was a black woman of Haitian heritage. She loved the faux-sensitive PC goons who'd refer to her as "African-American." She could make a case that it was just as ignorant and/or racist as any other slur. And yes, she had no problem with being described as "black" if absolutely necessary... she would differentiate me from another "Ken" (Mexican - oh, sorry, Latino) in the office as "blanc." It was all good-natured fun (and not inaccurate - I'd need a tan to be Goth) but it still served as a silver-platter example of how the PC sham is a "try to please everybody" failure.

messiestobjects

Yeah... that's one reason why the term African American is retarded. Another is that there are alot of white Africans. Another is that it connotates a dual nationality, but really they're just Americans; it's been long enough since slavery was abolished that there are no former slaves still alive, so no black people born in America are rightfully Africans anymore. Another is that it's just PC and fucking stupid.
