Frenchy, the issue is over STEREOTYPES. You said you are firmly and belligerently against ridiculous stereotypes. You said nothing about where you find them personally offensive. You tried to play that role that you're against [ALL] stereotypes. Nary a qualification given and nothing that said it was contingent on what you personally find offensive.quote:I did not have a problem with NativeAlien's remarks about white people in general. Didn't find them offensive. Didn't find them condescending or elitist.
And ummm... NativeAlien's registered stereotypes about more than Whites, if he really even registered any of those (you can point them out if you like). And, I dare say some of those non-White stereotypes were pretty damn condescending. But, as I've made clear, I don't recall any qualification for the stereotypes you claimed you were against save those that were "ridiculous". And there are plenty of ridiculous stereotypes that exist outside of those that tend to be best characterized as "condescending" or "elitist". And there are untold stereotypes that exist outside of what you may personally be offended by.
There obviously was something there that was bothering you when you said that "Be Grateful" shit. For sure, that wasn't about Elitist or "condescending" attitudes. That was, for all intents and purposes, some "patriotic" shit you were on or something. That's how you started your spazz here. So that defies and betrays all this BS about condescending/elistist stereotypes being what "bothered" you.quote:You asked me what bothered me and I responded.
You wanted to throw a hissy. You threw a hissy over that "patriotic" BS and your particularly odd view of what was, ONLY IN YOUR VIEW, a "Southern" stereotype.
And the same applies doubly for you.quote:Furthermore, I don't need your guidance on how to word my posts or where and when to speak. If something bothers me, then I'm going to say so. Interpret that as you like.
You want to register your Coming Out Of All Directions opinions as a way to "guide" MBM, e.g., away from making stereotypes about "Southerners". (One could argue that since you shifted your focus - from "patriotic" to "stereotypes" - that you have really been contrarian here; finding anything to disagreeable to disagree with.)
Also, it bothers me that you are so inconsistent with your Firm & Belligerent outrage. So what's your problem with that? Only you get to talk about what bothers you?
Sorry, it's just not going to work that way. Either way, please try to be more consistent - with your outrage spazzes and with what you want to complain about.
