If that is the filter, sir, then the filter is an ass!


The filter is what gave us Benjamin Franklin, who was the Boobiesmaster of the United States.

The Fark filter prevents people from saying "Boobies". It used to set the post date/time far in the future as well, so that people attempting to spam to get the initial post in a thread would actually end up with the last post.
That no longer happens, but it still provides occasional amusement.

padraig: aagrajag: skinink: And yet attacks against gays in France has gone up.

Death throes of a dying position.

I too however, was surprised at the size of the opposition in France.

It's often been said that France has the stupidest right-wing in the world.
Anyway, the reason for such strong oppositions came to two things : first, it was the opportunity for lots of fringe currents to find some legitimacy. Royalists (yes !), Catholics extremists, far-right, etc... all those people used the opportunity of this law to catch some spotlight.
Then, the UMP, the party of former president Nicholas Sarkosy. Even though François Hollande, the current president, is quite unpopular, the UMP is not seen as a viable alternative. They got trounced at the last elections, and the French people does not forget that, if the situation is bad now, UMP had full reins of the country the last ten years. So, although in other circumstances their opposition would have been quite light, they played with fire, and tried to transform this opposition to gay marriage, from a fringe minority of kooks and extremists, into a popular movement against the politics of Holland.


Wow did not know that. Thank you.

From your link:

According to the annual report, 645 cases were reported to the French LGBT organization last year, compared to 249 reported cases in 2011, illustrating that the number of anti-gay assaults has more than doubled in France. However, almost half of the attacks occurred in the last three months, during the time gay marriage demonstrations began to heat up in Paris, SOS Homophobia President Elisabeth Ronzier indicated to Le Huffington Post.
Surprisingly, France ranked further down the list in the EU survey, with 41 percent of respondents reporting discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Dansker: markfara: Absolutely amazing that it took them this long. This is a culture where prime-time TV is like: "Seinfeld" dubbed in French, sponsored by car commercials with tits, followed by "Friends: dubbed into French, sponsored by spaghetti sauce commercials with tits, etc. . . .

I don't know what you imagine that has to do with gay marriage, but AFAI most non-english speaking countries dub US and British shows into their native tongue. The Scandinavian countries are exceptions in Europe, opting for subtitling instead.
More importantly, why are you saying "tits" like they're a bad thing?


I guess my point is that I get to France from time to time, and their casual attitude toward sexual matters impresses me anew every time I go there. . . . Our regular, overplayed, bland TV shows are given a vibrant new life by the simple inclusion of tits. . . They also show hard-core porn after midnight.

I certainly didn't mean to cast any aspersions on tits themselves, and I apologize sincerely to any tits that I inadvertently offended in my Boobies.
