People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.

I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.

A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?

It is a big deal because i’m a transman

It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.

Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.

At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.

At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.

TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.

Target are honestly doing retail so bloody right

hmm, yoga is kind of girly #nohomo let’s rename it so it sounds manlier and make it just for the bros for the bros only

It’s crazy how some feminists get mad when men take something stereotypically feminine and turn it into a new branch to incite more men to do it. Like good for them, they’re helping men stay healthy, what’s the problem with that?

listen here sweetie

Yoga was never, and will never be stereotypically feminine.

Studio Ghibli | 1985 - 2014

After recent rumors of Studio Ghibli closing their animation department and the low box office numbers for When Marnie Was There, it was time to make an appreciation post for a company that has created true movie magic again and again. So, thank you, Studio Ghibli. Hopefully it isn’t good-bye just yet.

yeah lets be able to shatter all sides of this phone

Unless the “buttons” on the side have pips or something, you won’t have any tactile feedback from them, and they’ll be practically useless.

I talked to mann about this briefly earlier today, and while I can completely understand the view that words like “faggot” are exclusively slurs, I can’t bring myself to agree with it. As Aristotle put it, it is the mark of an educated mind to entertain a thought without accepting it. I like to hope that those of you who consider this to be a hot button issue read this post in at least the same spirit.

Point the first, forbidding a word specifically because it offends some people is an immature and poorly considered course of action. As a christian, I’m occasionally offended by things said by some of you guys openly in the channel. If I were to react to this with indignant self righteous rage, or by starting a campaign to ban discussion of things that offend me, not only would I be in the wrong, but no one would go along with it, because that is stupid. As an adult, I respect your right to say things that offend me when you aren’t speaking with intentional malice. I think that this issue should be treated in the same manner; some things offend some people. That’s okay, we’re grownups.

Point the second, “faggot” does not function exclusively as a slur. Words like macfag, newfag, oldfag, and other derivatives are perfectly acceptable modern usages of the term that have zero homophobic connotations whatsoever.

Point the third, not even use of the term in it’s connotation as a slur need be offensive. For example, my statement “censorship is for faggots” is in itself an offensive statement, but taken in context of the discussion at large is a simple use of irony to illustrate a dismissive point. Sure, you could be offended by that, I guess, but pshhht. If I call dexanote, who I’m using for this example because he’s a nice fellow who can take a joke, a gutless cock ravaged asshelmet, he won’t be offended, because he is a cool guy who knows I bear him no ill will and am just being ridiculous. If I call him a stupid faggot buttmunch curb scraping, the same principle applies even though it includes the word faggot. Context makes it inoffensive.

A_Fat_Ghost calls people niggerlipped faggots. He is a great guy, and surely no one would advocate banning him. Context is everything. If you guys were saying “people should be kicked and banned for using the word faggot to willfully insult homosexuals”, I would agree completely. You’re not saying that.

Point the fourth, it is not the place of moderators to be offended. If you find yourself reacting to user actions or making rules based on your personal emotions, you are always wrong, no matter what the issue is, because you have failed to maintain moderative objectivity and are acting with bias. Waxx is not an asshole. He is a damn fair man, and here understands the importance of treating issues with detachment. When I was an op in the channel, I enforced rules based on how I felt at the time. Now I’m not an op, because that is bad. This principle applies to every issue, including this one.

Point the fifth,

CENSORSHIP IS NOT OKAY, EVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

Never should any human being enforce a ruling that limits the free speech of another. Kicks for intentional and malacious trolling? Sure! Kicks for using a word you don’t like? Not okay. I unilaterally refuse to consider any word regardless of context a disciplinary offense and so should you.

Look. I realize offending people is a bad thing. I realize it’s unpleasant to be offended. I think we can all agree that people ought to be nicer to one another, but this is too much. By attempting to protect the interests of a group of people, you are imposing your will upon another and limiting their capacity to express themselves. That’s not acceptable.

In short, making use of the word faggot or its derivatives a punishable offense is a terrible, ignorant, stupid idea, and I do not agree with it. This applies to every other word you can think of, ever.
