Do you mean " whatever turns you on , Janx?"

I can only smile if that is it. Normal phrase for my generation. Maybe these days  " whatever floats your boat " or whatever.

But I am still unsure what you mean.

So what was the original comment? It is up to you to provide it. You are the one bringing it up.. the plaintiff, so to speak. And some of my posts have been removed.

The problem you have Johng is that you made an offensive comment but your bigger problem is that you don´t seem to realise despite the constant explanations that you made an offensive comment.

When I call someone a c**t on here I know it´s offensive and that´s why I do it ,call a spade a spade and all that (no that has no racist connotations before anyone pipes up).

Also the problem is that you made it on this forum.You can´t make that sort of comment on here because there is not an audience for it.Go to a comedy forum that expects offense and make the joke there would be no problem.If you posted a video of a gangbang on here it would be offensive but post it on a porn forum and it wouldn´t be.

People don´t come to this forum for sexist,racist etc jokes or comments so when they do see them they get offended.

Whoops.. silly quote system😒 
Apologies..tough on this SmartPhone thingy. And I am useless at it anyway.

Interesting- you write " no, that has no racist connotations before anyone pipes up".

So you reckon you might be accused of racism! Why is that? Because you ARE or because someone else decides on your behalf you ARE?

You have more patience than i do with the chronically angry.   You have done what you could to appease them. 

 

Wish you a pleasant evening.   🌜

Worse things happen, balticus. Opened the office door an hour or ago to take puppy Mandy for the last Pipirunde and two of our cats were clamouring for food outside. So , noblesse oblige , interrupted that and fed them. Went for a walk and came back and they had presented me with a gift..yep, dead rat. Ok, a small one and I wasn't hungry. It was Molly.. not Robin. The elder sister! 😂

 

That's politics XYZ cat-wise!😂

john, your statement was simply really sexist.  We're taking this terribly well-educated, accomplished, important, influential, powerful woman, a doctor of quantum fucking chemistry, who has achieved all these incredibly huge and impressive things, changed the course of history, helped to shape the modern free world and present day Europe, and your remark is, "well, she's not going to get a date looking like THAT:"

 

I know you're tired of me fussing at you, but honestly.  This kind of sexism isn't cute or funny.  Save it for your buddies.  I really hate to read it here.

 

Peace.

 

And you read the post she is talking about.

Would you have said the exact same thing about Johnson ?

No.

 

As i said you need to learn your audience.

Call me a wanker and I´ll laugh but won´t be offended but it is an offensive comment and some people would be offended if you called them it.

Because "call a spade a spade" has been around hundreds of years and means speak bluntly.However in the 70s (maybe later) some people decided it was referring to coloured people but it never has and has since been accepted that it never has been meant that way.

 

Your comment was sexist,no one has decided it is sexist.

It didn´t offend me but it was offensive,which you can´t seem to understand.

If after the first comment about it you´d have said "oops fuck sorry didn`t mean that'spoke before brain in gear etc" then I believe no more would have been said about it.

I could have written Johnson also needed a style consultant. I wrote he should have tucked his shirt in or something similar. I don't remember  writing Merkel needed me as her lover. Nobody does at my age😀😩

I could have written the men on there all looked boring on their suits and ties. Which they did. And hypocrites without masks and laying down the law. But I didn't. It was maybe the wrong moment and the wrong thread and I didn't react " politically correctly ".  Apologies to the eternally offended. 

Think what you want- satire is dying and don't worry we older folks will soon be dead and just rejoice.

Just shoot your parents and grandparents for not obeying your perfectness. 

Ok?

These are dangerous times.

Yes. I know the phrase and would use it if I were speaking English every day to native speakers in a certain context. But most wouldn't know it if they are young (-ish ). Or the background.

 

I remember the word " spade " in its racist context -- kind of " n...r word. I never used it. 

By the way, I just don't fathom it. " Your comment was sexist. No one has decided it's sexist."

Erm, apparently YOU have?

More nonsense from cb6dba opps sorry it was his parrot (or alt) MUinEU. :rolleyes:

Nice of you to jump in to defend balticus, sorry, your parrot (or alt). 

People usually accuse others of what they're doing or would do themselves. 

 

Did he ask you to step up to the plate or was it all your own idea? 

Must have been a fun conversation between you and yourself.

Defending balticus is definitely not something I do very often the opposite is much more likely as regulars here know very well.

In case you did not notice I was merely commenting on your silly child like personal attack and using your parrot (alt) to do it.

Hello, please stop accusing each other of being alts.  If you really think someone is abusing or gaming the system, report it, and we will look into it.

If nothing happens immediately, we have either decided it's OK for now, or we're still looking into it. 

 

Thanks.

Just curious to know why you have edited your original longer warning?
