The same old same old. Back in the early 80's, the town I grew up in had a womens rights group (as it was back then) complain about something or other and the council after some deliberation gave them every single thing that they were asking for. End of the story right? Wrong. The group STILL weren't happy.

These people are simply not happy unless they are screaming and complaining about SOMETHING. Perceived or real, it doesn't matter.

One time I was flying through the UK and because I am disabled and have a hard time standing around in line, the airport staff put me in the line for EU travelers. I got to the front and guy checking my passport was pissed and said, "You're not an EU citizen." I tried to explain that I was sent there because omg look at me, but he had none of it.

I'm a little happy that now, he's not an EU citizen, either.

You're missing the point. It doesn't matter WHAT they asked for. They asked for something (FORTY F'ing YEARS ago). They got it. They STILL weren't happy. THAT is what I remember.

Womens rights? I'm all for it.

Think real hard with me: What if they asked for something they deserved, got it, and still deserved more?

And when you suggest they didn't still deserve more, I'll point you to your claim of that thing you support.

Was it all sorted out 40 years ago, such that you can both logically be for it AND mock this imaginary group of women?

Or, was it not sorted out 40 years ago, such that the women had a right to not be happy with the state of things despite allegedly getting everything they asked for?

A guy friend of mine was once in favor of various forms of civil marriage compromise, because he had recently been blocked from the hospital bedside of his life partner. And while he actually wanted real marriage, at the end of the day he truly believed that by asking for less he might end up with more, at least in the short run. If he'd gotten his compromise and not gotten a real marriage equivalent, he wouldn't have been happy. He would have thought he made the right move, the only move he thought he had, but he wouldn't have been happy.


Archie Goodwin: You're missing the point.


I think maybe you are.  You are comparing women who weren't satisifed with women's rights in 1980 with the morons of brexit.  Step back a moment, and realize how truly ridiculous you are.

And let me clarify for you, buddy: it ain't about it being 40 years ago and you having the memory of a horseshoe. It's about it being 40 years ago and you declaring they shouldn't have still had demands as women in America.

Though tbh, your defense of "I wasn't paying any real attention to what they wanted, but I'm absolutely positive they got literally everything they wanted" doesn't help your conclusion of "stupid whiny biatches, not being happy with what they got".

Quick rebuttal:

1. In 1980 I was 16. I am now not 16.
2. I am sure that you and the other posters mentioned have a complete photographic recall of four decades ago.

Peace. Out.

That's nice. I haven't argued your recollection of your age in 1980.

Archie Goodwin: 2. I am sure that you and the other posters mentioned have a complete photographic recall of four decades ago.


And this is precisely why you are missing the point entirely of how stupid your statement was. It isn't about what they asked for and whether they got it. It is that clearly they didn't both ask for and get equality for women, which is why they were likely still not happy (see my gay marriage comparison that you pretended to read but completely ignored).

And JFC man, I'm not judging you for only caring about women to get your dick wet at 16.  I don't care if Archie Goodwin was paying attention to politics at 16.  But your claim here is that you were following what that women's rights organization was up to in your town (were they loaded with teens, or stocked with milfs, or what? Because you were just thinking with your peepee like any 16 your old boy, right?), but despite knowing how the town hall deliberated and gave them everything they asked for, you have no idea what those things might have been?

That's all fine (ish). What is NOT fine, is that you believe that because that event took place, the women necessarily should have been happy.  That you cannot comprehend this criticism of your "hurr, silly womens" claim and instead expect to get a parade of funny votes for how great you are is just... well it's sure something all right.

I will use small words in this post. :-)

It. was. 40. years. ago.

I do not remember the specifics.

I do remember a group asking for X. They got X. They were still complaining. To my 16 year old brain that was hilarious. That is all there is to it.

It may have been the year before or the year after.

I do not have a steel trap memory. And to ask for those details so long after the fact I get the feeling you are either being obtuse or are trying to rile me up.

And yes, the underlying principle is the same with the Brexiteers. They have 'won' and are still complaining. Again, I find that hilarious.

You also mentioned about the Womens Rights angle. Was it valid? I don't know. I didn't care at the time. So it is one part of the whole story that didn't stick in my mind.
 
2020-08-15 2:22:10 AM  

Archie Goodwin: It. was. 40. years. ago.


Yes, I've acknowledged that multiple times.

Archie Goodwin: I do not remember the specifics.


Yes, I've addressed that too. You liked women but didn't care about women's rights. You were 16.  I've addressed that.

Archie Goodwin: I do remember a group asking for X. They got X. They were still complaining. To my 16 year old brain that was hilarious. That is all there is to it.


You no longer have a 16 year old brain, and perhaps you should question the following:

1. Did they ask for everything they wanted, or just what they thought they might get at the time?
2.A. If they asked for everything they wanted, if things were still unequal, is there anything wrong with them having still wanted wanted more after getting it?
2.B. If they only asked for what they might get, isn't it very reasonable that they still had complaints?

Archie Goodwin: It may have been the year before or the year after.


What is "it" here? They might have only gotten what they asked for after a year? Or after a year you remember them starting to want more?

Archie Goodwin: I do not have a steel trap memory.


Nobody is insisting that you do. The only problem I have with your memory is this: you were farking 16, you admit you didn't give a shiat about women's rights at the time, just sexing them up.  That is normal enough.  But then, you pair that blatant admission that you weren't paying attention to a damn thing at the time with this absolute insistence that the women were stupid somehow.  I find it very unlikely you were paying any attention to what they wanted, whether they actually got what they asked for, whether they asked for what they wanted, or whether they got what they wanted, yet remember NONE of those things. I find it much more likely that 16 year old you heard some bigoted piece of shiat a year later say "hey archie, you see them silly wimmins? we gave 'em all they wanted and they ain't happy"

You know why i find that more likely? Because it fits with the kind of rubbish every bigot I know has said about every civil rights movement in modern history.

Archie Goodwin: And to ask for those details so long after the fact I get the feeling you are either being obtuse or are trying to rile me up.


I'm not asking for those details. I'm saying the fact that you have absolutely no clue today what those details are suggests you had absolutely no clue what those details were then, and that this admitted lack of giving a shiat about women's rights at the time calls the rest of your story into question. As for obtuseness, right back at ya.

Archie Goodwin: And yes, the underlying principle is the same with the Brexiteers.


No, it isn't the same underlying principle, and that is why people are calling you out on it.

Archie Goodwin: You also mentioned about the Womens Rights angle.


I mentioned women's rights? Yes, in response to you telling a story about a farking women's rights group supposedly getting everything they wanted in 1980.  Don't act like I brought up women's rights here. You did that.


And let me just reiterate, the entire concept that 16 year old you was paying attention to town farking council meetings and your local women's rights movement, but that you also didn't care about politics or women's rights at the time, is utterly ridiculous. You didn't know jack shiat at the time, you just heard somebody joke about the stupid womenfolk in passing, locked that into your memory, and thought you'd get big laughs by trotting out the herpaderp today.  You swung and missed. That you further attempt to claim that it is about you personally is even more ridiculous.

I don't think there's any comparison to be made about the women's movement 40 years ago (when wherever in the world you were, things were significantly worse than they are today and the situation remains far from equal by many measures in most countries) and what the Brexiteers promised to deliver but are now biatching about among themselves.

The Brexiteers who are biatching today about the Irish Sea Border promised a miriad of technical solutions which would have entirely solved this situation if they existed. They are the ones who have failed to deliver. There's no comparison to be made with people fighting for equality in the workplace, politics, business and society in general.

Archie Goodwin: We are both speaking English (I think) yet we cannot seem to communicate.


If you cannot understand the points I've made, it is willful ignorance and your pride refusing to let you accept you could be wrong. 16 year old you stupidly thought something was hilarious. 56 year old you is the one I'm asking to think critically.

Smackledorfer: You no longer have a 16 year old brain, and perhaps you should question the following:

2.B. If they only asked for what they might get, isn't it very reasonable that they still had complaints?



I'm asking you this because as you present things, you are a bigot and against civil rights; you found and still find it hilarious that women are still asking for more stuff, even though 1980 came and went and they got everything they should have wanted. I'm giving you some benefit of the doubt, that perhaps you are capable of acknowledging versions of the events in your town 40 years ago that don't involve the silly women's group being a bunch of dum-dums. You seem incapable of accepting such a possibility, as it interferes with your narrative, your admittedly shiat memory, and wouldn't be the funny thing you think it is anymore.

It isn't funny, because the only way in which it possibly could be funny is if the only women's rights group your town council listened to were a bunch of idiots, AND if we further believe women had no reason to complain about anything after those idiots got what they wanted.  But you'd have to be quite the misogynist to believe that.  So even the one angle of humor involved here is still pretty shiatty on your part.

You both communicated just fine. You just will not acknowledge you were wrong to come to that conclusion years ago.

It was explained to you in thoughtful detail how your old story was likely a reflection of some bigotry towards women's groups who "got what they asked for and still weren't happy" and you compared that to brexit.

If your story would have been "in 1980 a group complained constantly about the sign outside the courthouse that was old and decrepit and an eyesore. After years of complaining, the council finally removed the sign. The group stormed out of the meeting in anger that they removed the sign and now there was a bare spot without grass",then we would have laughed at your story.

But you did not do that, you are in the wrong here and you just cant admit it, even on an anonymous message board.

Successive governments kept defunding police, social services, health care, education, pensions, infrastructure and affordable public housing in order to give that money to their friends.

When things turned progressively shiattier and shiattier and shiattier for over 40 years, people start looking for someone to blame and its never themselves. It will not get any better until  they run out of people to blame, sot it will be quite a while.

JulieAzel626: I'm confused.

Is this thread about a women's rights group being allowed to perform X-rated acts in a movie theater when you were 16 years old?


No, it's about getting 16 funnies.

does it have something to do with people's raw emotions (mostly anger) being constantly triggered for so long they don't know how to behave without it? level 2 thinking is only a concept at this point?

If you cannot understand the points I've made, it is willful ignorance and your pride refusing to let you accept you could be wrong. 16 year old you stupidly thought something was hilarious. 56 year old you is the one I'm asking to think critically.

Smackledorfer: You no longer have a 16 year old brain, and perhaps you should question the following:

1. Did they ask for everything they wanted, or just what they thought they might get at the time?
2.A. If they asked for everything they wanted, if things were still unequal, is there anything wrong with them having still wanted wanted more after getting it?
2.B. If they only asked for what they might get, isn't it very reasonable that they still had complaints?


I'm asking you this because as you present things, you are a bigot and against civil rights; you found and still find it hilarious that women are still asking for more stuff, even though 1980 came and went and they got everything they should have wanted. I'm giving you some benefit of the doubt, that perhaps you are capable of acknowledging versions of the events in your town 40 years ago that don't involve the silly women's group being a bunch of dum-dums. You seem incapable of accepting such a possibility, as it interferes with your narrative, your admittedly shiat memory, and wouldn't be the funny thing you think it is anymore.

It isn't funny, because the only way in which it possibly could be funny is if the only women's rights group your town council listened to were a bunch of idiots, AND if we further believe women had no reason to complain about anything after those idiots got what they wanted.  But you'd have to be quite the misogynist to believe that.  So even the one angle of humor involved here is still pretty shiatty on your part.

We are both speaking English (I think) yet we cannot seem to communicate.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

/Move along people. Shows over.

You both communicated just fine. You just will not acknowledge you were wrong to come to that conclusion years ago.

It was explained to you in thoughtful detail how your old story was likely a reflection of some bigotry towards women's groups who "got what they asked for and still weren't happy" and you compared that to brexit.

If your story would have been "in 1980 a group complained constantly about the sign outside the courthouse that was old and decrepit and an eyesore. After years of complaining, the council finally removed the sign. The group stormed out of the meeting in anger that they removed the sign and now there was a bare spot without grass",then we would have laughed at your story.

But you did not do that, you are in the wrong here and you just cant admit it, even on an anonymous message board.

If you want to say I'm wrong then I'm farking wrong. Happy now? Sorry, that my sense of humour offends you, but it is what it is.

It seems that no matter what I type someone will take it the wrong way.

If I may ask of you and the others who chimed in, are you by any chance lawyers?

FWIW: Equal opportunity? I'm all for it.


I know this is a post so late it is just for the interwebs memory... but, LOL.

No, I am not "happy now" but i do know that you are a little, simpering, whiny shiat.

God you are pathetic. Just admit you were wrong and you would have received a nod from 95 percent Of us. But, you just could not avoid being a whiny, simpering, little runt.

Pathetic.. you are simply pathetic.

Go on telling that story,

In 1990 you got some nods and laughs,

IN 2000 you got some laughs.

In 2010 you got a laugh from the loud guy in the corner who also yelled at the top of his lungs when he was drunk " these biatches are ruining us".

In 2020 you were challenged on your idiocy with logic and reason, but stood your ground,

In 2021, good luck man.

You, Are. An . Asshole.
