"It refers not only to the target's lack of virility but also to his weakness of character, lack of determination, competence, and coherence-virtues that, rightly or wrongly, are still identified as pertaining to the male gender."

So that's what it means!

Sometimes the penalty is worse than just a fine...

Are you calling me a castrati?

Could you call me two, I had a light lunch.

But that pitch clearly was out of the strike zone.

But calling a woman a "sorca" is still OK. 'Cause that's just playful.
 
2012-08-01 10:53:10 AM
You know who else had no balls at all?

Italianos mugrosos. Si no tienen huevos, pues ni modo. Get over it.

so if a stranger sees u. don't look in his eyes cause it's voodoo?

Holy Crap! Wait until some Italian judge hears a CoD chat.

Sorca? they don't seem all that bad...

What a bunch of pussies those Italians are.
 
2012-08-01 01:17:47 PM
So, if I said that no one in Italy has any balls, how much of a fine would that be?

NONE OF YOU HAVE ANY BALLS!

It's still ok to insult the spiciness of their balls, right? and to rub their crotches to make sure they have balls, as per the pic in TFA? i might also need to make sure that their women have no balls.
 
2012-08-01 01:31:10 PM
Apparently nobody in Italy has any balls, if they can't handle an insult like this.
 
2012-08-01 01:34:24 PM
Wow, make it a crime for someone to say you have no balls because it will make you feel less manly? Sounds like something a eunuch would do.
 
2012-08-01 01:37:05 PM
A'that's a'spicy Italianballs.
 
2012-08-01 02:00:53 PM
expression definitely also has an injurious quality," said the male judge in his ruling.

That's the problem.
 
2012-08-01 02:04:37 PM
Given that he chose to settle this in court, and not like a real man, I'd say his cousin was right.
 
2012-08-01 02:15:36 PM
That's in a court. As far as I'm aware, insults like that should trigger contempt of court, anyway.
 
2012-08-01 02:24:49 PM
I'm Italian so I'm peeing on this thread so I can get a kick out of these posts, later.
 
2012-08-01 02:26:09 PM
Sure. The manly way to deal with this insult is to CONFIRM that you have no balls. Right. Great way to testify.

I wanted to fit a Scalia joke in here, but it's just not coming together. Nuts.
 
2012-08-01 02:36:43 PM
We can still say Italian soldiers are worthless cowards, right?

Bondith: We can still say Italian soldiers are worthless cowards, right?


Yes, along with their ship captains.
 
2012-08-01 02:49:35 PM
I thought it was the Englishmen who haven't got any balls.

2012-08-01 03:08:19 PM
yeah yeah yeah..

My favorite part of the article is that under the picture of the crotch grab it has a link to "view larger images" in a story about not having (enough) balls!!!

ironic?

What about telling them they're part eggplant?

So I guess Italian women, by default, lack character and virtue? No wonder I love Italian women.

I don't know, but we should definitely send a nice fruit basket to Italy.
 
2012-08-01 03:57:31 PM
So, you can't imply that Italian men have no virility, strength, courage and bravery because it might hurt their feelings?

None of the great Italian war heroes would put up with this nonsense, like...ummm...don't tell me...y'know, that guy...no, wait, not him...uhh...hmmm.

/how do you repel an Italian attack?

I suppose so... How about the popes leading the Crusades? Aren't they Italian war heros?
 
2012-08-01 05:52:57 PM
Italian ladies... while I'm not saying that Italian men don't have balls (that would be illegal right?)... I *am* saying that I have something that you might have been missing in your Italian lovers...

yes, that's right... I have balls.

Wiki suggests that they didn't turn up in person, they just ordered it and then stayed in Rome. Urban II, who got the whole thing going, wasn't even Italian (born in France). Then there's the question about whether or not it was heroic or genocidal (I ain't touching that one).

There's Garibaldi, but he only ever fought other Italians.

Poor old Goebells has no balls at at all.
 
2012-08-01 06:40:51 PM
I assume if he doesn't have them it wouldn't be a crime. So, somebody in the court will have to check for said balls, and declare "testiculos habet et bene pendentes".

"He has balls and they're hanging well"?
