Find Me On:
Key to the Kuffs. 1 key.
I understand. But would anyone have objected if they just said they had to cancel some shows to “deal with the aftermath of this tragedy”?
I am a huge Radiohead fan. However, I think this statement is in poor taste. Someone freakin’ died and they’re whining about their equipment? Wtf?!
Weird policy. Couldn’t you just link to the Premature Evaluation in the Album of the Week post?
For some reason I cannot reply to your last post in our discussion.
I just wanted to say that I appreciated your last post and that it makes sense to me.
Also, sorry about the dyslexia.
I’d like you to point out where I made this “all about me.”
Incidentally, my main issue with Tom’s post is that it is quite clearly all about him. Especially the last sentence.
You have the reading deficiency, dude.
Also, make up your mind. I need to know if I’m allowed to say “good for her” or not. Your views on this confuse me.
Wait. So you’re so pissed off about downvotes that you post twice about it yet you’re attacking those of us who called out the insensitivity in Tom’s original post?
At least you got your priorities straight!
As I have said before, I am not outraged. I was offended by the tone of Tom’s post. I do not see anyone attacking Tom. I do, however, see people trying to explain to him why his post was offensive. He posted a half-assed apology rather early in this discussion. I hope he’s been reading the comments posted since then.
What you don’t understand is that it usually isn’t a snap decision followed immediately by gender reassignment surgery.
Yes, extremely offensive. Especially this part:
“So: Good for her? I guess? My main takeaway from this, beyond the obvious surprise, is that I’m hoping Gabel’s hormone treatments won’t change her inimitable bleat of a voice.”
Sure, your coworker doesn’t fault them for it. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt anyway.
Also, no one is attacking Tom as far as I can tell. We’re just expressing the fact that we were offended by the tone of the post.
There’s a difference between being outraged and being offended. The tone of the original post was offensive. Sorry.
It’s all in the tone. And it’s extremely offensive.
One of the most offensive questions you can ask a transgender person is whether or not they’ve had “the surgery.” Surgery is not necessary to consider yourself your new gender. Therefore, there is no question that she is a “she” now and should be referred to as such.
