I think this is an excellent opportunity for the advancement of knowledge.

We aren't monkeys! We're apes.

true.

it's every bit as frightening as the PC movement as embodied by the conservatives and religious right of america.

no matter who, or what type of person you are, just about anything you say is gonna be met with some kind of righteous indignation.

it's stupid and it sucks.

next time that woman sees those kids in the tree, she could just let 'em fall out and break their necks.

but of course, then the complaint would be that she purposely turned a blind eye to the little darlings immenent peril, because she's a racist!.

"and the band played on"....

Give me an example of conservatives and/or the 'religious right' attempting to outlaw free speech because it hurt someone's feelings.

In Salt Lake City, the 'religious right' Mormon church does not allow cursing on the 15 square blocks or so of downtown that they have bought up. You're also not allowed to kiss publicly there.

It's still an attempt to restrict free speech. Which you asked for an example of, which I gave. Tool.

2nd example; the 'religious right' objecting to pornography, cursing, or sexuality on television and in movies. This is a well-known and long-established tradition of theirs.

Also the Mormon church didn't make it 'illegal'.

The church doesn't write laws.

No, they were not; the formal title may not have been there, but it most certainly was the religious Right-wing in America who insisted - and continue to insist - upon these restrictions upon free speech.

My Mom calls me "a little heifer."



I find her remarks to be bovinist.

When my niece and nephew are acting like monkeys (climbing trees, making a lot of crazy noise) they get called little monkeys. I do refrain from using the term at school, though. Sad.

I've worried when I was working around kids that I'd slip and use that sometime and get myself in trouble...Like Linkat said, little kids DO act like monkeys! I've always thought so--it's adorable Smile

I didn't know about the derogatory thing for a long time, long after I was in the habit of calling little kids climbing around on things (or me, for that matter!) little monkeys. It's too bad it has those ugly connotations.

My daughter told me it was o-k to call her a monkey, but not at school or in front of her friends.
