@dlowan,
I think you hit the nail on the head, bunny. An eye of the beholder, whatever offends you kinda thing.

Actually, I was interested when I first went to write a response to this bizarre thread and realised I would say "is Jewish" rather than "is a Jew".

I get that it has, sadly, evolved that calling someone a Jew has become offensive.....but nothing excuses the vileness here aimed at someone who had no intent to offend and no knowledge that offense might be taken.

It's similar to Australians having not the faintest notion that watermelon and fried chicken are racially sensitive topics in the USA!

A simple post pointing out that offense had or could be taken would have been enough, no?


If you are addressing my posts, I only wanted to educate people about the historical use of the word "Jew."

However, it may one day be thought by some people that Jews married so many Asian women (in the 21st century) for the purpose of having future generations of Jewish women (by Reformed standards of course, since by Orthodox standards a mother must be Jewish for a child to be Jewish) having very little, or no, cellulite.

So, perhaps in a hundred years or so, rather than Gentiles, who have issues with Jews, think of Jews as they "think they are so smart" (aka, superior), we might hear accusations that Jewish women think they age so much better than others with no cellulite? Then again, mixing with Asians, they might then be "smart," at least in math?

Just making a joke (of course).

@Roberta,
Few seem to consider that Farmer was kidding - as he is beloved for typos on parade while being smart -
and that Lola just responded with either a straight answer, or Mel Brooks answer to the thread question.
I'll pick straight, but not sure.

I'd say Christ on a Stick, but that would be tacky.
I'm an old catholic and fifty years later quail slightly at what I just said, since I tend to not wholeheartedly make fun of religious..for some good reasons.

Like any group of people some gays are great people and some are pure sh*ts, but they amount to less than 10% of the population and are getting a far greater percentage of coverage. Why so?

The percentage of Americans who are disabled is greater than the percentage who are homosexual and yet they get far less attention. Why so?

There's a reason, what is it?

@Ragman,
That's it!

That and the fact that straight women, no matter what their politics, love them.

@Lola,
I’m sure you did mean it to be a joke. Apparently Morgan didn’t think so, said he wouldn’t log back in here again and said he’s done with it. My opinion only but I think he would have left anyway seeing how his husband doesn’t care for the forum.

@Finn dAbuzz,
The gays who are my friends are individually talented smart funny sometimes neurotic, sometimes a mess, sometimes wise, usually honest - but I'm sure there are others out there, that I don't keep up with, who are stupid slobs with no humor, sans neuroses since they're too dumb to think of one, and are liars besides that. In other words, just like non gays.

I can tell someone fun to talk to when I read one, and jcboy is.
People who talk well can be quite attractive to women.
Finn's envious.

If he'll take the message, Jeff, tell him he's still liked.

Besides that, I'm glad you still stay and talk.
Liked the photo of your doggies.

@ossobuco,
On disabled, I could surely qualify if I applied. Do you wanna talk all about it?

I remember the day I found out the guy that ran the gallery down the street from us had my same eye disease. He was quite active, including driving a truck, blah blah. He'd been on disability 25 years for that reason. (rolls eyes, 25 missed years on my part)

I'd rather talk about something else, like food or weddings or turtles.

And so it goes.

Of course he's still liked. He should come back, and hopefully he will.

One of these day's Setanta's going to piss me off and I'm going to leave in a huff myself. And then you'll all be sorry.

Tell you what I thought when I saw the topic "JIM NABORS WAS GOY?" It made me laugh out loud. It reminded me of an Emily Latella skit, but Jim Nabors actually is goy which I think is a fairly humorous and droll comment.

@ossobuco,
Finn is very much happily married and isn't in the least envious.

As he has written he knows there are wonderful people who happen to be gay and there are absolute shits who are as well.

(Believe it or not, Finn has personal friends who are gay or lesbian [none are transgender to his knowledge]who think very fondly of him.)

This, to me seems to be a true measure of accepting the equality of gays.

If Finn has to walk on eggshells when it comes to gays, but can freely make whatever Southern redneck joke he pleases, that is not a sign of equality.

Finn can't abide the culture of victimhood wherein people identify themselves first as victims and then pick from the long list of accepted victims as their secondary identification (With American and Human coming in far down the line)

Man Up, Woman Up, Gay Up, Transsexual Up...Person Up!

Have some pride and tell the people you think disdain you to f*ck themselves and get on with your life.

Even in a country infested with politically correct liberals, your happiness and success will depend upon what you achieve, and not what is forced upon others.

Whiners are, by definition, miserable.

@izzythepush,
it has been my experience that folks that have to write about themselves in the third person are way the hell around the frootloop bend.

just sayin'...
