Hateful Slurs

Post #1 by Spotty » 10 months ago

If anyone says the word tranny here (or the n-word, or faggot, etc.) in anything other than an academic way or quoting a source, I will personally put them in the dungeon and ridicule the fuck out of them for the rest of their stay here.

I'm done tolerating hateful slurs.

You're welcome to use them here. But you'll be using them in the dungeon and you'll be at MY mercy.

And I'm not feeling at all merciful.

The above will be reflected in the rules as well, so no excuses.

I'm waiting until tomorrow or Friday when I'm less pissed off to update the rules so the language will be less emotional.

But you have been officially warned.

(I'm not speaking to anyone in particular here, it's just a general notice of I ain't putting up with this shit at my home forum kind of thing)

1000% agree with this. Dont fight your free speech arguments here. Its not allowed and that kind of talk has a welcoming home at many forums. This is simply not one of them.

And mods read all posts; we don't wait for reports.

I have no problem with this. I'm fairly confident that this is the first time I've ever typed the word "tranny" on an online forum.

That said, I would have never guessed that this word is considered a derogatory term. In my naiveté, I would have assumed that it was merely a shorthand version of the word transvestite that is used by members of the community. Thanks for the heads-up.
I bought a second hand time machine next Tuesday.
They don’t make them like they’re going to anymore...

do a little experiment sometime:

1. Go to google image search

2. Make sure safe search is "off"

3. Google "transgender"

4. Google "tranny"

5. Note the difference.

(it's probably a very bad idea to do this at work)

I'm not disputing you. I was merely letting you know that I didn't know.

Oh, I know. That's just the most effective way I know to instantly illustrate the difference and WHY a lot of trans people dislike the word. ESPECIALLY when it is used in the overtly derogatory way that it was last night at that other forum. Sorry if I'm still a little sensitive. I just woke up and I'm still kinda pissed off. Not at you or anyone here. This is the kind of thing that costs real people their lives.

The n-word is OK in music videos where its use is rarely racial but more often ironic, affectionate or disapproving.

About the only time I've ever used the work "tranny" was when talking about car engines.
