    fyi, i fucking hate the thing of splitting posts up into multiple quotes because it comes across as obnoxious but i'm quite busy and that is the easiest way to address individual points quickly

    again, i wonder if a ride is the best place for satire that can be easily misinterpreted. and again, i don't know enough about the ride to pass judgement and i hope i made that clear in my posts. if i didn't, well then i hope i've made that clear since that post. my point was never about the specifics of the ride.
    this is kinda disdainful and generally dismissive to theme park culture and the ride itself but I'm going to ignore this aside from one statement: this shit wasn't made strictly for kids in the 60's

    it was an observation that you took personally. i mean, using faggot in a discussion about political correctness is fair game to point out.
    "also thank you for using faggot in a discussion about political correctness" is not even up to debate as being a total condescending "tsk tsk tsk" statement. you really need to learn how to word things so you don't sound like kind of a righteous prick. people dislike panther for this kinda crap. don't be like panther.

    also I really need sleep so be my friend at least once tonight and don't respond to this post for like, two hours. let shaun or somebody else argue with you. we'll pick it up tomorrow.

    How, exactly? I didn't mention you by name, and I didn't intend to either because I'm not the kind of person who would stoop so low, especially towards someone who can ban me in an instant if he so chooses.

    I was just saying that somebody who embodies those traits above during a debate would be hard to get behind.I didn't mean you at all, just a hypothetical person, and if you think that you yourself may have those traits then that's your problem, not mine.

    I'm sorry if that was misconstrued, but again, not my intention to insult you in the first place.

    It wasn't, but I can see why you would think so.

    Look, why don't we call a truce? It wasn't really my argument in the first place and I shouldn't have jumped on the bandwagon without anything or anyone to back me up. And if I've genuinely upset you, then I'm sorry.

    I'd just like to point out that the initial post I made in this thread was supposed to be lighthearted, hence the gif of Michigan J. Frog. Didn't think I'd spark such an argument over political correctness

    pops, you worry too much about this kind of thing. i didn't respond to what i deemed a personal attack (and it was, c'mon now) because why should i and how can i? but i'm not genuinely mad with anyone when i have these discussions. atleast, in the long term. i mean, me and ryan always end up kissing and making up. it's a discussion board! it'd be boring if everybody agreed all the time and it didn't get heated occasionally!

    it isn't just mine and ryan's argument to have so you shouldn't worry about jumping in.

    so i guess yes truce but we weren't really at war? i disagreed with you on the internet.

    oh i know, it is just a general annoyance that i have about being pigeonholed as having a load of opinions that i don't, y'know.

    Well, isn't this well timed. This is on the front page of imgur, and personally, I think it's quite the commendable way of dealing with such controversies.

    As far the the personal attack thing goes, neither of us will back down so there's no use pursuing it now, is there? That'd be silly.

    I still stand by my point that I shouldn't have jumped in, I really lack the gall and brains for debate, as you can plainly see.

    Maybe truce was to formal a word, let's just agree that we would never have made each other see eye to eye and this petty quarrel would have gone in a vicious circle. We are completely different people, so any chance on us agreeing on something is rather slim.

    OK, I think I've said all I've needed to.

    i'm so sick of this being the centre of every debate rather than the actual words i'm saying. i get accused of being dismissive and condescending and whatever and i never fire back on that. i just don't think it is really fair or the right way to conduct a discussion. i'm sure i'm frequently irritating but pretty much everybody on this site is insufferable when you're on the other side of the debate to them. maybe i'm worse than most, i don't think so though (please don't come back at me on this with "others agree" because i know, whatever. we aren't going to agree on that)
    especially on the subject of dismissiveness. i don't want to bring this up because we've dealt with this but did you read the lipz thread? so many people just dismissing the need for the discussion and you had a go at me for being annoyed at that. you can't have it both ways. you can't defend people being dismissive when you agree with them and get annoyed by it when they don't.
    i'm dismissive of people when i think they don't have a good point. just like you are. and just like everybody on this site/world is.

    i never think of having a debate with somebody as having personal issues with them. ever. we just disagree on a messageboard and it would be fucking dull if people didn't.

    I'm bringing this back up because to blow my own trumpet I think the way we view political correctness is the crux of this matter. There's no doubt examples like the one @Ryan gave aren't particularly helpful on any level, but I feel people are missing hamm's point that people use these kind of examples to fashion political correctness into a weapon against all it intends to do. Because of the sillier examples, people forget that the right-wing narrative on political correctness is a horrible horrible thing where allegedly weak, overly sensitive liberals are trying to bring down the patriarchy and have a world where blacks/women/gays/insert another minority here aren't allowed to be criticised. It's basically the old MacFarlane defence, and I don't think anyone here would say Family Guy is anything but horrible with its terrible stereotypical and sexist jokes. The kind of people who rally against political correctness loudest effectively want that same freedom to say whatever they want on the mistaken assumption that as long as you're not telling the minority group to go home or stay away from our children or whatever you aren't actually a bigot, just a wacky, out-there individual laid low by namby pamby hand-wringing lefty types.

    Not sure if you're serious or not, but that's probably for the best.

    I was honestly expecting 2 or 3 "lulz wat an idiot" posts.
