Yeah, guess what? No one cares. I'm a pretty tolerant, liberal person, but I'm so goddamn sick of Muslims (and extremist Christians) getting horribly offended by everything. Go whack off and you'll feel better.

I demand pics
2005-01-14 12:42:36 PM  
Who knew? Who cares!!!!

And also...

If people were like me and had no sense of shame, there'd be a lot less biatching in the world.
2005-01-14 12:43:19 PM  
People who are easily offended offend me.
2005-01-14 12:45:00 PM  
It said 'polish,' with a lower case 'p'. I thought, 'Who would read a magazine about polish??

I always wanted to start a magazine called Jugs, about jugs, and see how many people would buy it by accident.

what doesn't offend islamics?
2005-01-14 12:51:07 PM  
maybe they were offended because
"it's a man baby"
2005-01-14 12:54:52 PM  
Of course, after unleashing all that vitriol in my Boobies, I have to ask, "Who are the Islamics?" I thought they were Muslims.
2005-01-14 12:59:26 PM  
Maybe it's for knob-polishing.
2005-01-14 12:59:46 PM  
Mmmm.... boobie vitriol
2005-01-14 01:00:24 PM  
Gotta use those towels for something, I guess.

I agree! Don't people have something better to worry about?
2005-01-14 01:01:13 PM  
OH MY GOD ITS BOOBS! Won't anyone think of the children?
2005-01-14 01:01:16 PM  
"They show something bad about Islam, an Islamic woman naked."


That's bad?
2005-01-14 01:01:28 PM  
....vitriol in my boobies,
fark filter uber alles!
2005-01-14 01:01:54 PM  

"The topless temptress is superimposed onto a photo of covered Muslim women beneath the headline "Extremists in the Harem." Inside, there's a photograph of another woman, sitting in the buff amid white-clad female pilgrims in Mecca."

My god, I think I'm about to have a religious experience.

2005-01-14 01:02:50 PM  
Everything is bad to someone.

Take a stand. Any idiot can go thru life without offending anyone.
2005-01-14 01:03:37 PM  
we need pics!!!

crazy Poles...Forum is actually a very good magazine (widely respected)...

Shopkeeper Abdo Quhshi holds mag with X-rated cover cut off.

Did I miss the memo about "breasts" suddendly calling for an MPAA rating of X???? Hell I thought breasts were PG-13?
2005-01-14 01:04:44 PM  
So what? Islamicists are offended by the continued existence of the Western world and religions other than Islam. Whop-de-fricking-do. Why should I, or anyone else, give a damn what these people think?
2005-01-14 01:04:47 PM  
"Topless woman in burkha"

Doesn't a burkha cover everything? I thought those were the dumpy-looking sheets that make Muslim women look like Jawas.

So what? She's topless beneath the burkha?
2005-01-14 01:05:00 PM  

Headless people on video offend me.
2005-01-14 01:05:10 PM  
that said, I need more boobies for my vitriol....
2005-01-14 01:05:45 PM  
UnknownEric has succinctly summed up the views of everyone.

Nothing to see here, move along.

I offend Muslims every single day... by being alive!!!!
Fark them!
2005-01-14 01:07:16 PM  
all offendables need a deep impact
2005-01-14 01:07:39 PM  
Wow. No pics yet? Fark disappoints me
2005-01-14 01:07:40 PM  
Why won't the Christian Right embrace the Islamic Right like they've done with the Orthodox Jews? Seems like they have a lot in common.

Okay, there's good reasons, but it's only a matter of time, mark my words.

"Saying about my Prophet Muhammed that he loved women, you don't have to say that," he said.

Would it be better to say he loved men?
Just wondering, you know.
2005-01-14 01:08:32 PM  
Half an hour and no pics of boobies. WTF?
2005-01-14 01:08:54 PM  
Sheesh, and I thought our fundies were annoying.
2005-01-14 01:08:58 PM  
Least we forget Poland.
2005-01-14 01:09:30 PM  
"The cover is no good," said Abdul al-Fatah, 30, at Greenpoint Variety Candy & Grocery on Manhattan Ave. "They show something bad about Islam, an Islamic woman naked. We feel angry about it."

I hope it offends them to the point of a farking heart attack. Lighten up, allah.
2005-01-14 01:09:32 PM  
Can the mods please start a new rule that any article that is obviously worthless without pics, and doesn't contain pics, is automatically ineligible for posting?
2005-01-14 01:09:59 PM  
Poland.... He was that weird ass painter, right?
2005-01-14 01:10:03 PM  
Well it's nice to see that glint eyed islamo nutcases are in the same league as say Fark editors with their obligatory NSFW.
2005-01-14 01:10:58 PM  
"They show something bad about Islam, an Islamic woman naked."

I'd like to second Alexis's boggling at that quote.

Boobies go home!
Put your sweater puppies under your burkha where God intended them to be you temptress!
Whoo needs tits to fondle when you have God!
2005-01-14 01:11:16 PM  
Is it ok to be racist about muslims? I mean, I'm pretty ok with all people, but I kind of hate muslims. Is this the beginning of some sort of paradigm shift about how we're supposed to respect all people? You know,maybe we should change it to, "respect all people, except for, you know, those damned muslims."

Salmon Rushdie says in his best Sgt. Schultz voice, "I know nothink."
2005-01-14 01:11:27 PM  

You know? I almost didn't post that, because I'm a pretty tolerant guy. I have nothing against the religion in its more lapsed form, as practised by many more secular muslims around the world. As long as nobody gets hurt, and women aren't being abused or being held prisoners in their own households.

But, having read the farking article, I can see that the pictorial was at least attempting to make a statement about the radicalization of Islam. When it comes to making a point I think boobies are a better than beheadings, no matter how tasteless, as I'm sure you'll all agree.
2005-01-14 01:13:03 PM  

2005-01-14 01:13:08 PM  
wtf? pics? comon guys...
2005-01-14 01:13:20 PM  
fark filter uber alles!

That one really made me chuckle!

"Of course, after unleashing all that vitriol in my Boobies..."
