You darn kids with your newfangled words! In my day, we didn't need an evolving language! Everyone was called Bob and liked it, dadgumit!

Its pretty rare to find a white wing "point" that isn't a thinly veiled ad hom and insult.

All those things are true, but especially the words "*WAS*. "Cis" has now been hijacked by haters and bigots, it's become a pejorative that should not be used on these message boards or in polite conversation.

I know, it was a good term, but it's no longer usable in polite society.


I don't have a problem being called cis, any more than I do Caucasian.

If you only support equality when marginalized people are nice to you, you don't support equality.

Straight people, white people, men, neurotypical people, etc. -- all of us who enjoy privilege in some fashion -- get the fair shake that privilege represents regardless of whether we're nice people, good people, pleasant people, well-behaved people, etc. And marginalized people deserve that fair shake, too, regardless of whether they talk in ways you like or are offended by.

If you're only supporting marginalized people when they behave in ways you like, you're abusing the privilege you have, because you're essentially using your supposed allyship as a carrot/stick to compel certain behavior from them: "Sure, I'll treat you like an equal--as long as you only speak in these ways."

It's not expecting any more than you expect of any other human being.

If I act like an a&@*@+#, I expect to be called out on it.

Coddling gay/trans/whatever people by not treating them the same way is ridiculous. It's not treating them as an equal. Which is the entire point.

Certainly, I'll defend LGBTQ rights and advancement regardless of the dickery some individuals show.

Doesn't mean I have to keep supporting that specific individual. Because they're a dick.

It works the same way with everything else. Doesn't matter WHAT you're arguing for. If you act like a prick, you drive people away.

A short NSFW bit from the deceased Richard Jeni about politics HERE where he shows the extremes of all three sides (left, right, center).

It's kind of funny. Once a religious group of a certain size stops oppressing those of other faiths/creeds, it seems to start receiving karmic retribution... only the oppressors are long dead.

When did this religious group stop oppressing other faiths and creeds?

As far as I'm aware sometime during the mid 20th century.

I hereby empower you to coin your own term.

I'm pro-self-naming.

Is it that degrading to people of unusual types for Cis people to just be called normal?

Is there something wrong with being exceptional [aka an exception to the average]?

And when did that happen? About the time it came into widespread use? (insofar as it's in widespread use, I suspect the most common reaction to it would be "What?", rather than "Don't insult me")

Feel free to suggest and popularize an alternative. I suggest not using something like "normal", since that's the point of having the term in the first place.

You serious?

And even if that were true (which a quick look at the US political system would belie), people who were alive in the 1950's are still alive today, you know?

As long as it doesn't involve taking regular words and replacing letters with y or i. Or z. Or x. It reminds me of 90s comics with X-TREME and 37 extra pouches per character. I have a hatred for boi, grrl, womyn, and a few other words. I don't know why, something about them make me want to shake them till the letters act right.

Lots of Congressmen pushing 70 (or even 80 in some cases) right now.

A good half of Supreme Court judges are over or near 80, and only one is below 60.

So, yes.


Point taken Rynjin. Lets let this line of discourse die as has been requested.

Anybody have a GOOD script I can use...?

The cutouts 1

Road Trip
A street racer(Nicholas Cage) gets hired to drive a car from Philadelphia to Silicon Valley. Little does he know there is a prototype crime computer wired in under the hood. He does know he installed a nitro injection system attached to the fuel line(in case he needs to join a race).

He also doesn't know that one of the three people he found to share the gas and food costs is a programmed government assassin. Sally, who just wants to get to a job as head librarian in LA, will shoot anyone who gets called a "thug". One of the other passengers is a conspiracy nut with a blog who calls anything that threatens him a "CIA THUG!" Sally never sees the guns she hid in her clothes and luggage, nor does she remember head shotting bad guys.

The dashboard trip adviser keeps telling them when someone with a criminal record is nearby, and all kinds of mafia and terrorists keep coming after them. There are rest stops, rural gas stations, and a chop shop where they get the engine repaired along the way.

When the driver drops off the car, and they grab the computer to put it into mass production, the 4 cut outs take the money(The driver gets to keep the car), and just agree that they don't really want to know. The guy who hired the driver says,"As long as I can call you for jobs, I'll clean up your records." Thus setting up for the sequel.

Even as a firm supporter of LGBTetc ideas that would make some posters' heads spin, I'm with you here. ^_^

I'll respect whatever anyone wants to identify as... but part of me is always thinking, "That's not how you SPELL THAT." Can't seem to shake it...


I hate Skub.

I hate that you didn't provide a link to what Skub is exactly, I'm picturing aliens from a cheap 70s or early 80s sci-fi train wreck... I miss the Killer Tomatoes movies...

I agree with you on serious discourse. But I really like playing with orthography when it's in the realm of art. You can do some cool transgressive stuff there.

I find it real horrorshow.

Followup - I do have weird exceptions to my insistence on proper spelling/grammar/etc.

Y'all is a legitimate contraction y'all.

Even some language experts agree the English language needs a proper 2nd person plural.

Hey guys,

A thread like this is always going to wade a bit into dangerous waters but it's up to us to keep the discourse respectful. Everyone has a view point (right, left or otherwise) and we need to listen to and respond to that viewpoint in a manner that isn't confrontational or rude.

Not pulling out anyone in particular just a general observation that the thread has been getting more aggressive than we'd like. Lets keep it positive going forward.

True true, but if someone without the right accent says it (like myself) it comes off as phony, now if someone from say Texas came up to Minnesotty and tried saying "You bet'cha!" To fit in he/she would get laughed out of Milt's General Store :-)


Of course, it's just like the management to come in and "keep order" once the truth is said about Skub.

I will not be silenced!

Confession:"Having fun" is not an aegis that protects one from criticism of their character idea nor an instant approval of said idea. It may be fun for you to play an hyper-intelligent flail snail rogue/witch with otherwise normal characters in the party; for other people and/or the GM, it is the beginning of a story about "that guy/girl".

I legitimately want to play a flail snail Cavalier, and you're intruding upon my rights!
