Dancin_In_Anson: There are bigger fish to fry that some asshole in Enid, Oklahoma.


There will ALWAYS be bigger fish to fry. But not focusing on the small fish from time to time will cause them to grow into big fish that do become a major problem. Why not stop it right now?

As opposed to making sexist comments anonymously?

[img.fark.net image 243x207]

Yeah, there's no way that negatively referring to a human being as a piece of female anatomy, intimating that to be such a piece of anatomy is to be weak or inadequate could be considered sexist!

Sgt Otter: A sit-in by a bunch of wounded and disabled veterans from Fort Sill should be good for some lulz.


Probably couldn't be hard to pull off, either, given that Occupy Oklahoma and Occupy Tulsa were easily the longest lasting and must entrenched camps largely because of the vets.

So you're the self appointed "fix other people's problems" guy eh? Good to know your house is 100% squared away.


I think as long as said house doesn't have a problem with gays or gimps, stones can safely be thrown in this case.

You bet!  Expect a pic of Gen. Sherman with the usual caption before the thread closes.  Or if not this thread, the next one to be greened...likely within the next 15 minutes or so.

Oh for fark's sake.  "Pussy" in that context has nothing to do with the female anatomy.  That may be its origin, but in today's vernacular, it no longer refers to a vagina.  Stop your whining.

Baloo Uriza: No-name establishment in one of the southern plains most progressive cities outs itself on regional television as a front for hate. Knowing the differences between Portland and OKC in terms of diversity and acceptance, I'm thinking this place will close faster than that bakery in Gresham that wouldn't make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.


Did you not see the t-shirt? I pretty sure it wasn't a secret.

What a great marketing campaign AND you might even hurt his business. It's win all the way around!

Congratulations, guy, hope you saved for retirement.  Good luck with the ADA lawsuit.


It makes me wonder how well his restaurant and views would go over in Tulsa.
 
2014-02-07 03:01:58 PM  

bigpeeler: More power to him. If you don't like it, don't go there. Apply the same logic that people use when others complain about movies and TV shows. Don't like it? Don't watch it. Bunch of over-sensitive pussies.


And apply that same logic to other business owners who have been wanting to deny entry to people of different race, creed, nationality, age, etc. in a public place.

You do realize this can snowball very quickly. If they don't quash it now, it will set a precedent that it's okay to discriminate.

The similarities between this and biatching about a movie/TV show are pretty much nil.

Magnanimous_J: The lesson from all of this is: You can be the most hateful person on the planet, just make sure you hate the right people.


The "right people" being pretty much limited to people who are evil, and do evil things.
There is no point in pretending that hating evil, harmful people is analogous to hating people because of the color of their skin, or their handicapped status. I think it's odd, and suspicious, that someone would attempt to pretend that.

If there truly were such a thing as a righteous and just god, this man would be struck with polio (or a car) and lose the use of his legs.  Alas, there's not.  I'm not advocating that somebody do that in his/her/its steed, but I would laugh if they did.

Listen, I don't give a rat's ass if he uses the term or not.  But the fact that he posted a picture of "I don't think that word means what you think it means" implies that there was no way that word could be construed as such.  When quite obviously it could since that's how the word began its life as an insult.

Because the vast majority of bigots are cowards and wouldn't actually do anything beyond flap their big mouths and masturbate furiously to the thought of other people paying attention to them.

You're the one who is missing the point, sir. Many people have made sacrifices so that all people, no matter their race, would be treated equitably in establishments that serve the public. Its not that we all want to eat at this shiathole. The problem comes when Red Lobster or Ruth Chris decides that they should also be able to refuse service to people based on race or sexual orientation or when a private bus company decides that the seats in the front are now for whites only, again. The deal is, you get to use our public roads, fire department, and infrastructure so shut up about who you don't want to serve.

A problem with someone as an individual for their opinions or behavior is different than a problem with someone as an assumed characteristic of their identity. If someone has a problem with me being the sum of my actions and statements, that's a personal matter. If someone has a problem with me because of the color of my skin, the ethnicity of my parents, or the usability of my legs, that's a bigger problem. Specifically, it's a bigger problem that, if you'd acknowledge the Woolworth's counter photos in this thread, was only solved when legislation was passed to protect those designated "someones."

Obviously, you've never been here.  This guy's right on the Cheyenne-Arapaho Nation's doorstep, home of the first legally married same-sex couple in Oklahoma, thanks to cultural norms and legal situations in that Nation that really caused eyebrows to raise more on the side of "you mean nobody had done that before?" among folks in the know.  So, that's two things that totally grinds this guys gears:  indians and gays...

Seriously?

Well, I guess if you are gonna be moralistic, you shouldn't half ass it.  I'm just not sure you are qualified to judge "good" or "evil" any more than that racist is.

Unless you think you are more advanced than he is.
