Who cares? I think it's funny.
These activist groups must just sit around looking for things to be offended by.
People need to lighten the fark up. It's only a couple of radio idiots.

Typical 'Shock Jock' fodder which has become main stream.

And EnemyFrank, I'd rather have this kind of an activist group, who will sit down and discuss what they feel is a slight against them, and do so rationally. They beat PETA and all of the other militant activist groups.

With the former type group, if you really want to be an intolerant prick you can ignore them. With the latter, you almost have to pay attention to them.

"Perhaps the station thought it was somehow "okay" to poke fun at lesbians the same way it's "okay" to make fun of Southerners, or white people dancing."

Red-neck's dancing lesbians are funny.
2001-07-24 09:34:48 AM  
I agree. White people dancing is absolutely hilarious. I guess I'm one of those rare creatures that's secure enough in who they are to not be affected by stereotypes.
2001-07-24 09:44:26 AM  
they said lesbian...ha ha ha
2001-07-24 09:58:02 AM

I agree with your theory on activists, but are you implying that I'm an intolerant prick? The only things I'm intolerant of are stupidity and political correctness gone mad.
2001-07-24 10:46:03 AM  
If you're intolerant of stupidity, then you should look to this radio station. The whole idea is gross, unoriginal and juvenile. Now they're trying to spin it as "educational"? You can't get much stupider than that.

Camel-Toe for Front Row? That was really nasty...Some of those things could give the Grand Canyon a run for it's money...

2001-07-24 11:35:47 AM  
Camel-toe for front row?

Where did I miss this? This sounds hilarious. One of those gross Ijusthadtolook things.
2001-07-24 11:53:02 AM  
camel-toe for front thats golden! :P

I think Britney Spears should win that one.

(hint: spell "shiat" the normal way)
2001-07-24 12:13:03 PM  
nvm, britney has "moose Knuckles"

All dressed up, and no where to go. "I'm gonna knock somebody's dick in the dirt!" she said...

This article is dumb. We're reclaiming that word; I don't mind being called a dyke any more than my friend jeremy minds being called a fag. :P The whole point of reclaiming is that you don't get offended by it when people use it, and that you use it yourself - that article runs contrary to the goal. I personally think the contest was a cute idea :)

What I still thought was great was when a radio station in Dallas hosted "different" dating games. They had gay, lesbian, and transsexual ones ;)

You can't buy that kind of publicity.
2001-07-24 02:44:03 PM  
HAHHAHAH!!! That's farking hilarious! Buahahhaah!!! I wonder if anyone gets gored????

2001-07-24 03:38:44 PM  
Rei , are you a clam bumber?
2001-07-24 03:45:20 PM  
"clam bumber"?
Laf, that's a new one ;)

I'm bi, but I tend to prefer women.

2001-07-24 04:03:15 PM  
... Then your a female ? Maybe I did read that somewhere and just forgot ... Anyway, Happy Clamming.

If dyke is an offensive word, then lesbians need to stop using the word to describe themselves.

For example, the other day one of the WNBA teams (Sacramento?) had Gay Pride day for one of their home games. A group of lesbians in the crowd were photographed holding up a sign saying "Davis Dykes" (as in Davis, California).

You know, all you had to do was check my info... :P

Exactly. As I mentioned in my boobies on this thread, we're reclaiming that word. That's why this article is silly. The whole point of reclaming is that a) you don't get offended by it (which we don't, for the most part), and b) you use it yourself.

Some blacks have tried reclaiming the word "attractive and successful African-American", but a lot of them don't get the concept - they do b), but not a). :P

2001-07-24 04:32:00 PM  
well... I remembered attractive and successful African-American, but forgot about boobies. Oh well. :P

I hate that contextless filter. :P

2001-07-24 06:10:22 PM  
Rei: I want to help you reclaim the word. You see, I am a Dyke in a mans body. I am with ya sister ;)
BTW, boobie pic?

There once was a she-man named Joyce
who was a bulldyke by choice
a penis she missed
when she stood and she pissed
And she had severe grooming issues

EnemyFrank, sorry, I just revisited this thread.

When I made the intolerant prick remark I said did say you, but it was you in the sense of being not you you, but you in general.

Also, if memory serves that was before the morning Dew. I wasn't attempting to imply that anyone was an intolerant prick, I just think it was poorly worded on my behalf. I apologize.

This is pretty tame (and lame) as a radio promotion. About a year ago while I was driving to work, I saw this dude dressed up as Little Bo Peep--strapped with duct tape to a telephone pole about five feet off the ground.

Turns out it was a radio promotion. Listeners were told to do wacky stunts to attract the police. Whomever was first earned a pair of tickets for some hot shot, sold-out concert.

Hey, folks! Radio is show biz...and show biz is constantly looking for ratings. And it's outrageous stunts that pull in those coveted numbers.

Every major city has its "morning zoo" station and its pair of dimwits who laugh their asses off at each other's dopey witticisms. They're established formats--and they usually work.

The language used by these jocks may be offensive to some narrow-minded goofballs or by some old buzzards...but that is not the audience these stations are targeting. In fact, staged protests and letters to the local rag provide free publicity for the station. How ironic! But how true!
2001-07-24 08:47:50 PM  
So what's all the fuss about? Typical, inane radio promo stunt. Radio DJ pursued by local fuzz bumpers in search of free tickets to a show by one of their own. Outside of a few uptight farks, who really cares? Remember, sticks and stones ....
2001-07-24 09:41:09 PM  
Rei, I agree completely with your comments. I don't know any dykes who don't take the term as a compliment. I can think of way worse things to be called ("republican" springs to mind.)

I think it's also tremendously cool the way the pink triangle has been reclaimed.

Am I missing the jist or this discussion or what?

I can't use the N-Word or Dike or fag when referring to someone unless they are a close personal friend and never in a situation where a third disinterested party might be in the same discussion. In a close personal situation or amonst a group which knows the relations ships and the group dynamic it's ok. I receive a racial slur ( and when I give it back - racial, religious, ethnic, sexist etc ) it is never done in anger. "You fark'n dumb arsed N..... , why did you go an do that!" is not inappropriate amongt my frends. If I did that to the kid that delivers the pizza I would expect instant relatiation of a non verbal kind.

Do I hang around with a group that is just too farking P.C.???? It works for us.

No sweat - it just sounded funny, that's all. No apology needed.
