"Rick Ayers, a retired teacher...said educating students about offensive language is preferable to policing their speech."

I'm still trying to parse this one. Does it mean "we're trying to make them internalize the censorship we want to impose so we won't get caught imposing it and run afoul of that pesky 1st Amendment stuff"?

Or does it mean "we're telling them what not to say so that we can justify punishing them if they say it, regardless of that pesky 1st Amendment stuff"?

Somebody help me out here...

Some of the tennagers around here have a saying when someone is being stupid:

"Don't be gay."

It eventually got shortened to "DBG", usually delivered in a dismissive tone.

I was once ratted out to my boss by someone at work who overheard me utter "that's so gay" to a co-worker, and was offended by my "extreme anti-homosexuality." My boss took me aside, and as I explained to her that where I grew up, "that's so gay" meant "that's extremely lame," she stopped me and said that's what it meant where she grew up, too. Then she explained it was no big deal, and if she hadn't made an "overt" attempt to correct my behavior, she and I could have both earned a trip to Human Resources---the principal's office of the corporate world.

"Queer" used to be forbidden but then the show "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" put that taboo to rest.

So it was ok to ask a girl if she had 10 moms because she's Mormon, but not ok to say "that's so gay." That's soooo frickin gay.

Extremely gay, actually, because the offended person who ratted me out regularly ate at the "Y" . . .

Well, now the word "gay" enters the Pantheon of words one cannot say in America because of the pussification of the nation.

Have you noticed that the word "problem" has just about disappeared(except when you thank someone, the almost universal answer is "no problem" instead of "you're welcome")? "Problem" has now been transformed into the word "issue."

Everyone knows what a "problem" is, but "issue" can mean lots of things.

So, why is the word "problem" avoided at all costs?

Ugh.

Because there are no problems, only challenges.

This "no problem" thing is a pet peeve of mine especially in a restaurant or other service setting, where it's usually uttered by some slack-jawed 15 year old who's thought processes have been shorted out by puberty. I want to say "I'm glad I'm not a problem for you." It's a far cry from letting me know I'm welcome to their service, for appropriate remuneration of course.

I like the word "pervert". It's a nice all-around word which can mean 'dirty old man', 'child molester', or 'alternative lifestyler'

No such thing as a "problem."

We have "issues, concerns and opportunities for improvement."


Thank you corporate America. :-)

When do playground insults used every day all over America cross the line into hate speech that must be stamped out?

Hate speech that needs to be stamped out?????

What happened to free speech?

IMO, anti-Christian and anti-Jewish remarks are *hate speech*. Now what? Ban everything the self-appointed elite dislike. I hope she wins.

Sounds like you have an issue! ;-P

A problem is something that is wrong - something to be solved. An issue, on the other hand, is something that must be dealt with - and that may actually mean that it must be accepted.

Therefore, all problems became issues - so the person who notices the problem can be forced to accept the situation.

Where I work, we have "opportunities to defy natural law" - otherwise know as corporate mandates.

A few years ago, it was "opportunities to excel". Then they added Word and Powerpoint, too.

I was ratted out by a co-worker who overheard me use the word HELL. She complained to her Supervisor as well as Human Resources. I was furious, then, and still am. The problem I have is if someone is offended by my vocabulary, THEY are the ones that need to attend the Tolerance & Diversity classes. Furthermore, I was not put on this earth to modify MY behavior because someone else if offended by my existence. To do so is to become a slave.
Now, I might add, the complainer was a black woman. I am a white man. But, I cannot think of any instance ANYWHERE, where the complainer WASN'T a woman...
