It's a fark board cliche in itself to use the floor-humping workout guy to dismiss a website. It's a google ad and I've seen it on left-wing blogs also. For that matter, I've seen ads that were for "liberal" products show up on right-wing blogs. Let's try to debate ideas based on the content.

And yeah, the left are all loving Pat Buchanan for clear reasons. The far left and the far right have common ground along with other fringe folks. Socialists, white supremacists, old school paleocons, and muslim extremists can all loathe the evil jewish conspiracy together. Heck, I even saw an older "free-Palestine" hippie lady awhile back making copies of articles explaining how the Holocaust is exagerated. Yep, it's all fair if it's anti-Israel.

A drag queen and homosexual aren't necessarily the same thing.

not always, but usually. when is the last time you went to a drag show at a straight club? i'm sure it happens, but maybe not so often.

Pat isn't the most rabid xian out there in regards to gay issues, but i still say it would drain the joy out of his world to find out about the magazine cover, if it hasnt already.

"Inbred albino bog mutants" works for me.

They work for me, too. In fact, I have a whole crew of Inbred albino bog mutants finishing my basement right now.

In other news, the thread seems to have died. Can someone please revive it by making outlandish claims equating opposition to the Iraq War with jew-hatred? I mean, go over-the-top with it. For me.

Anti-semite means anti-jew. I don't care if arabs are also "semites", that's not what the term currently means.

Such anger in this one! Exactly what have transvestites in general done to you to warrant it?

I feel bad for transvestites. I think it would be torture to feel that you're in the wrong sexed body. That's pretty sad.

I'm sure they're nice people and their drag shows in Key West are a hoot. But, generally they make me sad.

Hang on a second:

Arabs are Semitic. Yes? True or false. (Here's a hint, look at Arabic and Hebrew. Notice any similarities?)

"anti" is a prefix meaning "against" or "in opposition to". True or False.

As gay as Matt Furey seems to be, those one-leg squats are pretty tough.

If anti-semite == anti-jew then 'dumb as fark' == 'less intelligent than myself'.
 
2005-10-17 12:28:07 PM  
Why is it sad? I've found that most drag queens absolutely worship women--whereas most straight guys lose interest in any woman who is past a certain age and are no longer "hot." If you look at fan clubs for people like Diana Ross, Bette Midler, Dusty Springfield, Patti Labelle and all those older divas, you will find that they are run by gay men. Drag queens are especially loyal to their divas.

Drag queens inhabit a different world which is all about make believe and fabulousness. It's all about glamour.

Hey, herne, not questioning that the ideal female form is yummy. But thinking that one sex is "ugly" and the other "beautiful" is kinda unhealthy, too, even when it's your own sex you think of as ugly- implies a real bad issue with self image. A physically fit, well-proportioned body, male or female, is an attractive image.
Now, just waiting for the "OMFG! This guy must be teh Ghey!"

Another example of the farked up English language. Where a phrase can mean one thing translated literally, and another once some pissy group yells loudly enough.

shipud - How's about you list all the definitions for 'semite' from your Merriam-Websters, eh? My dictionary has these confusing definitions.

Semite n.

1. A member of a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the Near East and northern Africa, including the Arabs, Arameans, Babylonians, Carthaginians, Ethiopians, Hebrews, and Phoenicians.
2. A Jew.
3. Bible. A descendant of Shem.

anti-Semite (nt-smt, nt-)
n.

One who discriminates against or who is hostile toward or prejudiced against Jews.

anti-Semitic (-s-mtk) adj.

antisemite

anti-semite adj : discriminatory especially on the basis of race or religion [syn: racist, antiblack, anti-Semitic, anti-Semite(a)] n : someone who hates and would persecute Jews [syn: anti-Semite, Jew-baiter]

Funny thing language: 'Semite' is different than 'semite'?

Funny how 'semite' can have such a broad meaning, but once you put 'anti' in front of it, it's just Jews.

So how do you describe someone who hates non-jewish semites?

Oh that's right...no such thing as a non-jewish semite.

therecksays: Pat Buchanan = Conservative "Fark the Poor" Guy

Farker_Texas: You two are kidding, right? This is the guy who screwed Dubya's daddy in 1992 with his fearmongering "culture war" comment that scared the bejeezus out of mainstream America.

MrBelvedere: Buchanan is a paleo-conservative. That means he hates Bush because he hasn't put barbed wire on the Mexican border or outlawed abortion. They are also big Arabists.


Wow. The ignorance displayed in this thread is.... well, it really isn't surprising at all, but it's pretty colossal.

Real quickly: Buchanan's 92 primary campaign was sucessfull because, unlike Daddy Bush, he was the one looking out for the financial interests of the little guy. Perot did so well in the general election for the same reason: both major candidates endorsed NAFTA, Perot opposed it.

Daddy Bush screwed himself with "read my lips no new taxes". Buchanan's culture war speech scared people who were already voting for Clinton anyway, because it was accurate (and prophetic. Go read it).

Only on Fark would barbed wire, a basic border control measure supported by a majority of Americans, be considered extremist. Buchanan knows the president can't outlaw abortion, but he wanted him to keep his now-broken campaign promise to appoint Supreme Court judges like Thomas and Scalia. And "Arabist" is a code word for "anti-semite", which is a code word for "doesn't blindly support Israel in everything".

EnormousJuan: Another example of the farked up English language


The original term is French.

I'm an alcoholic since I am addicted to driving (car fuel contains octanol, a form of alcohol).
 
2005-10-17 01:30:00 PM  
Sorry, German. The term "antiSemite" was coined in Germany in 1879 by Wilhelm Marrih.
 
2005-10-17 01:51:38 PM  
The origin of the term "antisemitism" explains its problems in modern English usage. A hundred years ago, a bunch of French bigots formed the Parte' Antisemite' in France. This, at the time, was a "polite" way of saying they were against jews. "Antisemitism" soon was co-opted into English usage.

Americanized English should stand for something clearer and less pretentious than such phoney-baloney euphamisms. Blame it on the French, and move on.

Sayth Eddie Izzard

"Cause if you're a transvestite, you're actually a male tomboy, that's where the sexuality is. Yeah, it's not drag queen, no; gay men have got that covered. This is male tomboy, and people do get that mixed up, they put transvestite there - no no no no! Little bit of a crowbar separation, thank you! And gay men, I think, would agree. It's male lesbian, that's really where it is, ok? Because it's true! Cause most transvestites fancy girls, fancy women. So that's where it is."

The funniest "anti-Semite" farkup I ever heard was in the afterword to a book about Werner von Braun and the German V-2 scientists who were brought to America after the war. Author (named Freeman) was at a conference where someone from the ADL or a related group called her an anti-Semite for writing about that subject (and approving of the U.S. working with these scientists). Freeman responded "I'm Jewish, you idiot!"

To which I add (just to stir things up), as far as ancestral background goes, the Jews & Palestinians are kissing cousins. See the following article for an informative reading from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (US):

Hammer, MF et al. Jewish and Middle Eastern non-Jewish populations share a common pool of Y-chromosome biallelic haplotypes. PNAS 2000 97: 6769-6774

Modern genetics is so fascinating.

I hope I'm not repeating anything anyone else has said, but we need to get our terms straight (no pun intended).

Transvestite=someone who derives some sort of pleasure from dressing in opposite sex clothing. Mostly hetero.

Transsexual=current usage indicates someone who has had some sort of physiological intervention to change their sex. Gay, bi or hetero.

Transgender=someone who identifies in any way as other than the gender to which he or she was assigned at birth. Also gay, bi or hetero.

The term "transformer" is often used in reference to any of the above and, depending upon who you talk to, not the most respectful term. Also a car part.

***Note - According to Pat Robertson natural disasters favor areas with high concentrations of gay men. This is why San Francisco and Key West have earthquakes and hurricanes, respectively. Therefore, if you move a large portion of gay men from one area to the other, said natural disaster should follow them...

I got to see her when she came to town. She's such a FABULOUS preformer, utterly fantastic! I loved her Wonder Woman outfit, too. Watching her show made me feel rather self-concious, though.

You got that mixed up with transsexuals. Those are the ones in the wrong sexed bodies. Transvestites just like to dress up like women for whatever reasons.
 
2005-10-18 02:35:03 AM  
Unoffically, here's the break down:

Crossdressers do it just for sexual kicks.
Transvestites do it just for a good feeling, though sometimes for sexual kicks.
Drag Queens do it for performance art, and of course, any performance art, leads to sexual kicks.
And Transsexuals do it because they're in the wrong bodies. And yes, it does suck.
