Somewhat similar thing happened to a FB friend. We are all of the older persuasion (far older than most of you farkers), and are now reconnecting with HS friends.

Unbeknownst to almost all of us, one of us has been a closeted TG for a long time. Someone found out, and outed them on FB.
Almost 100% of us came out in support of the TG person, and berated the idiot who outed them. Our TG friend was a little traumatized for a while, but appears to be OK now. She is now fully out (legal name change and all of that), but it was dicey for a while.

So for you guys that think it's merely 'funny' to play with such personal information in public, here's a big fark you.

And it's not just 'gay/not gay', or 'male/female', but rather any deeply personal information. The BB idiot could just as easily have said on the guys wall "I like to sniff little girls panties, the younger the better". Or "My boss is a real farkwad!"
And he would have thought it just as funny.

It's the invasion of personal space, not the specific message.

Not fooling anyone so why not just come out?

The Consumerist had an additional suggestion for the retailer: "Maybe it's time to beef up that section on how not to invade customer privacy and wreak social networking havoc."

Yeah, because employees actually read the code of ethics before signing it, and making it longer would help.

Apparently we've gone from "accepting gays as a normal and acceptable lifestyle" to "being offended if someone doesn't want to be considered gay when he/she is not."

Pretty bizarre.

Outing closeted gays is just one of many services Best Buy provides while raping your wallet.

Cythraul: With a post like that. Maybe you are the one who should get over yourself. In other words, I care a lot about what you have to say. Please continue.


I probably should get over myself, but regardless, I still have no idea what you are trying to say.

If you have a problem with my reply to you, if you could clarify your problem, I'd appreciate it.

If you really do want me to continue, I'll start sending you my newsletter, I've got about four subscribers to it.

YouPeopleAreCrazy: Wayne 985: Seriously, threatening to sue because someone made a joke out of your Facebook page is wimpy to say the least

If it were a 'friend' doing it, I'd be mildly miffed. But an employee at a place of business where I give them money? As said earlier...a long, loud dressing down of the manager, in front of the entire store.

/lawsuit? No


Oh, I'm all in favor of the employee being punished. It's a violation of privacy. I'm just annoyed at how lawsuit happy people have become over matters that are relatively trivial BS.

ihatedumbpeople: Grables'Daughter: M-G: Grables'Daughter: Yeah, I read that and thought it was a pretty shiatty thing for him to say.

Yeah, it seems like it. He may be complete bigot. But it may simply be the sad truth, as being gay is still seen as something terrible by a significant portion of the population.

That really is mind blowing to me.

My mother's church took a strong stand against gays and made it clear that homosexuals were deviants and were not welcome. My mother quit going to the church.

So did just about everyone else, apparently.

They called her and said that they were reaching out to former members that have recently left, and asked if she would be willing to come in and talk to them. She said "I don't need to come in. I'll tell you right now why I left."

The church did not change their stance, and was recently sold for $1.00 to another, larger church as a satellite church. Now attendance is through the roof.

I'm not religious, so pardon my ignorance in this...

but...

isn't being a devout (fill in the blank with religion of your choice) basically saying you're anti-gay? I don't know of any Christian/Catholic/Jewish based religion that says gay relationships are okay...

kind of odd that people going to church to read a Bible would leave the church for enforcing the rules in teh Bible...?


You didn't ask me, so take it or leave it. This is just me, others will most likely disagree.

Men sleeping with men was considered a sin, just like eating shellfish and pork and a few other things that were culturally and medically significant at the time. They are no longer relevant in today's world.

From a less practical, more religious viewpoint, we are ALL sinners. Every single one of us. No one is "pure". Not Mother Theresa, not the Pope. We are all equal. It is ridiculous to point to an outdated doctrine and say "THAT'S a terrible sin".

Are homosexuals sinners? Yup. Just like heterosexuals. Are they sinners just because they're homosexual? I don't believe so. They are sinners because they're human, just like me.

Jesus sacrificed himself so we can all be saved, despite being sinners. We all have that same chance.

People who hate homosexuals because it's a sin are, in my eyes, the world's biggest hypocrites. They're sinners, too.

The whole judge not thing. If you believe homosexuality is a sin, you had best never have a shrimp cocktail or bacon. It's just as relevant to the state of your immortal soul.

Besides which, if you honestly believe someone is irredeemable the answer is not shunning and exile, but to try and lead by example, and if asked, witness.

That's my interpretation, anyway.

That's certainly a good point. But the message that was posted could have easily been defused by posting something like "No I'm not. Ignore that, it's a jerk at Best Buy," where some of your other suggestions wouldn't have gone away so easily. Instead he decided to be horribly offended about being called gay, as though he'd never been in 6th grade. This wasn't an invasion of privacy, it was a random insult from someone who can't come up with better put downs than a 12 year old.

Also, I get a kick out of posting in the same threads as you're in.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: AndreMA: ComicBookGuy: "I feel I've been humiliated, you know, I mean, my reputation has been tarnished," he said.

Wow. fark that guy.

Perhaps his reputation was tarnished not because people think that his orientation is other than it was, but because they were led to believe that he'd been lying about it? It's entirely possible that the victim isn't in the least homophobic or anti-gay, but is pissed off because anyone who believed the prank post would've concluded that he'd been lying before.

That was my take on it, that his reputation as an honest husband to his wife was tarnished, and/or that he'd been living a lie to his friend and family.

But whatever, people jump on any reason to get offended I guess.


/this

He didn't say anything about it being an insult, or gross, or offensive. He said it tarnished his reputation and humiliated him - which both have to do with how OTHER people would take the comment. It says absolutely nothing about his beliefs or opinions. Being portrayed as a liar (such as about his marriage) could easily damage his reputation and embarrass him - no matter what lie was said about him. In addition, even if he is completely in support of gay rights and such, that doesn't mean that everyone else he ever has to deal with will be, and we cannot easily choose every single person we have to deal with in life. Perhaps he has a homophobic boss or landlord. Perhaps he's just afraid he might one day have one. It's not like you can really be sure anything's ever gone from the internet.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: Cythraul: Grables'Daughter: Yeah, I read that and thought it was a pretty shiatty thing for him to say.

adamgreeney: I felt bad for him until that line. now I think he deserved it.

Yeah, there are worse things in the world to have people assume about your character other than being gay. I was a bit insulted by that remark, but not surprised. For many men, nothing is considered a worse insult than to be thought of as less than a man, which is what people think of homosexuality.

To be fair, he's not homosexual. He now has to explain that to everybody that wants to make a big deal out of it, and since something like that is an inherently private matter to begin with unless you choose to make it public it's easy to see how he could think those things.


I think it's obvious that he, in fact, is homosexual, and that the Best Buy employee has ruined his dinner plans for the upcoming Thanksgiving.

That Best Buy employee sucks.

/ this kind of thing is exactly why he's upset

No... it's just the misunderstanding and misguided offense being taken at a poor choice of words. Most Christians and conservatives would almost certainly likewise bristle if someone responded to being mistakenly identified as Christian or conservative by saying their reputation had been "tarnished."

"You say that like conservatism is a disease!!!"

"Anyone should be proud to be a Christian!!!"

Pocket Ninja: Well, not every Best Buy employee has the vast experience and intensive, hands-on training of a Geek Squad member. This guy's mistake was probably leaving his phone in the hands of a regular Best Buy employee, and some of those guys aren't supremely well qualified. It's like the bin Laden raid, really -- Obama could have assembled a strike team from regular Army members, and possibly 2 in 4 of them would have been really able to carry out the mission. Maybe 3 in 4. By choosing SEALs, though, it's pretty much 4 in 4. Geek Squad are the SEALs of Best Buy.


How could you say that with a straight face.

Cythraul: FTA: "I feel I've been humiliated, you know, I mean, my reputation has been tarnished," he said.

Gee, thanks. I guess I should go kill myself now.


I've done it myself a handful of times. It was actually pretty good despite what I feared. The first time, I went over after work, I was in a bit of a rush. I met the guy, we talked for a bit about what I wanted, and everyone left happy. I was really excited when I left.

Second time was on a rainy day. I got there, I was soaked even through my jacket. I got inside, it was warm, and I knew that I'd be in there for a while. The guy went above and beyond what I was expecting, and even got a friend to help me find exactly what I was looking for. It was incredible.

The third time I was a lot more confident, I knew exactly what I wanted and I got it.

We've all shopped at Best Buy. There's a _little_ shame to it, but it's not worth killing yourself over.

You don't understand. This is Richard Dewberry! Richard. Mother. Farkin'. DEWBERRY! A man so manly, Chuck Norris gets tips on how to be more manly from Richard M.F. Dewberry's Facebook status updates! You and every other woman of child-bearing age on Fark are probably pregnant now JUST because you read his name here!

I actually feel sorry for the people who read that smart-assed Best Buy employee's fake status update about Richard Dewberry's sexual orientation. I bet several of them dropped dead on the spot due to the shock, and several more probably committed suicide immediately afterward. Best Buy is going to owe their families a shiat-ton of money in civil damages before this whole thing blows over!

As a rule, they aren't interested even when they don't think I'm gay. Anyway, if a woman is at all quick on the uptake, she'll figure out what's going on when I invite her out for dinner, or drinks, or whatever. But I've never been hit on (by a woman) in my life, so maybe I'm full of it on this subject.

An old college friend I am FB Friends with had someone hack his account and post his "coming out." We haven't seem much of each other so, I thought, cool, very courageous and posted congrats on his page. After reading the venom on his page from his other "friends" and seeing his friend count drop almost instantly I kinda wondered why I was still his friend.
Then, I remembered he lived in Florida. FaceBook should have a Florida tag.
He posted after a bit and said he'd been hacked, that he and Jenny were still together and those that that had posted shiat and had defriended him were all assholes and he was glad to be rid of them.

I'm just curious where women get this information from? Is there some sort of list somewhere? How does it go from "people who read a Facebook post" to "all the single women in the world?"

I'd like to know, if I'm ever single again, I want on that list. I'm even okay with being thought of as gay to get on it, in fact I'd probably prefer it. As it turns out, women are pretty easy to pick up, you just have to have something interesting to say and if htey think you're gay when you walk up to them, they aren't immediately threatened or feeling like you're being a tool trying to pick them up.

They taking starting jobs of about 80k or so (which is what, 3 or 4 times as much as what BB pays?) as systems engineers, and 10 years later they're consultants billing at $150+/hr. If you are handing your phone to anyone who works in retail anywhere, then assume that phone to be completely compromised. There's no vetting process, and by virtue of being at BB they've already demonstrated they can't have a real jobs.

Jument: Cythraul: Pocket Ninja: Geek Squad are the SEALs of Best Buy.

You have that much faith in Geek Squad? All my IT friends tell me they suck, hard core.

You should take your Sarcasm Detector to the Geek Squad for repairs.


You obviously have no idea wtf you're talking about because A.) Geek Squad NEVER wear blue shirts, and 2.) actually are a bunch of geeks, at least in the stores around here.

Also, a lot of them used to work at tech companies as IT and other such jobs, but were downsized and ended up working for Best Buy. It's so tiresome how Farkers keep shiatting on things they really know nothing about. It's one thing to complain about the ACTUAL problems at Best Buy - things like shiatty customer service, orders getting screwed up, lack of product, etc. When you have problems like someone not knowing things, it could be one of several things: 1.) They are new. 2.) You're a self-righteous douche that can't wait to be given proper help and demand that someone from a different department that doesn't know anything about the department you need help in, just because they are free at the moment. 3.) You're a self-righteous douche that thinks you are the end-all, be-all of all things technology and anyone who doesn't know how to build their own quantum computer network from scratch, is a dribbling idiot.

This is not a direct defense of Best Buy - quit frankly they can go fark themselves - but a defense of retail employees. If you can't stop being a dick, STFU and order some broke-ass shiat from Amazon.

Cythraul: RoyBatty: Cythraul: FTA: "I feel I've been humiliated, you know, I mean, my reputation has been tarnished," he said.

Gee, thanks. I guess I should go kill myself now.

Well, then maybe you should, because you shouldn't be upset with this guy, but with the reporter.

What the guy said was shiatty, but he's just some random guy who's been the victim of a prank that did cause him a good deal of personal embarrassment.

You don't know how he votes, you don't know who his friends or family is, you don't know what stances he has taken, all you know is some random guy off the street, the victim of a crime, was quoted as saying something stupid that offends you.

The guy wasn't a politician or preacher or teacher or cop or judge or entertainer, he was just some randoms asshole,

but the reporter printed that as opposed to skipping over it. There was nothing newsworthy about his statement and there was no need to quote it.

And you make it all about yourself and take offense and suggest it's so bad you're thinking of maybe killing yourself.

Humans say stupid things all of the time. They are human. Get over yourself.

With a post like that. Maybe you are the one who should get over yourself. In other words, I care a lot about what you have to say. Please continue.


It's awesome that you got offended because someone doesn't want to be identified as something you are, overblow it into claiming you should kill yourself, then get butthurt when they explain why you have no sense of empathy. Remember, this is what you implied about the subject of the article. But please, don't let me stop you from your close minded, over drammatic temper tantrum.

He's pissed because all the replies were:

Congratulations!

I always knew!

Good for you!

It's about time!

sammyk: Guy probably deserved it by being a dick to the kid. The kid was probably sick of the shiat job at BB. Don't piss of the people that make your food or fix your gadgets people. They are one insult away from saying fark this job and fark the shiatty customers too.


True but it's not like he peed in his soup or spliced porn into his family movie.

Right after I saw this, I knew that Farkers were going to have a problem with it.

Before Facebook

In 1989 the Yale class of 1975 sent out questionnaires to its members so they could update the class directory for their 15th reunion. One questionnaire was intercepted and returned with the "personal statement":
"I have come to terms with my homosexuality and the reality of AIDS in my life. I am at peace."
This "update" was published in the class directory, triggering this defamation suit. I can't find out how this was resolved.

Isn't splicing porn into the family movie like tossing a bucket of water into the ocean? Or does not everyone have the same sort of family movies as mine?

lennavan: Eatin' Queer Fetuses for Jesus: I May Be Crazy But...: jaybeezey: Look, it's this simple. Most straight guys tolerate homosexual men in that they don't fear or have any reason to berate them. However, most straight men would not want to be thought of as gay when they aren't.

As a straight man (from Texas, no less), let me just say that this is nonsense. Why should I care if people think I'm gay? My girlfriend knows that I'm straight, and everyone else can mind their own business.

What if you didn't have a girlfriend and were actively looking for one? Would you mind if all the single women out there thought you were gay?

I'm just curious where women get this information from? Is there some sort of list somewhere? How does it go from "people who read a Facebook post" to "all the single women in the world?"

I'd like to know, if I'm ever single again, I want on that list. I'm even okay with being thought of as gay to get on it, in fact I'd probably prefer it. As it turns out, women are pretty easy to pick up, you just have to have something interesting to say and if htey think you're gay when you walk up to them, they aren't immediately threatened or feeling like you're being a tool trying to pick them up. So freebie conversation starter coupled with reduced threat? Sign my ass up.


I find it quite interesting that you want your ass signed up ;)

SweetSilverBlues: And for those who don't get it, the victim is full of shiat, he's just setting up for a defamation lawsuit.


This, but the outrage is entertaining.

Cythraul: mrtremere: On my birthday, my buddies changed my iphone app dating profile from Women [25-32] to Men [40-55] and "Edited" my description. 3am that night, I work up to my phone blowing with old hairy guys looking for booty calls. I got at least 9 messages that night... I never got that kind of response with the ladies.

:(

They though it was sooooo funny.

/csb

You know what would have been more funny. If you had not mentioned it for a couple of days and then the next time you spoke to one of your friends responsible for the prank and said, "The weirdest thing happened to me the other day. Somehow my dating profile got switched over to a gay profile and a bunch of middle-aged, gay guys started messaging me. You might want to talk to your dad, by the way, and tell him I'm not interested he had the tightest bunghole and gave the best head."


Fixed for extra hilarity.

Your reputation as a bigotted homphobe with severe lack of confidence in your sexual orientation?
