Topic Why is violence more acceptable in the U.S. than sex?
Posted 29 Aug 2016 09:56

I thought of posting this in the Arts Forum, but think that this may get more controversial.

So in movies (and TV), it is far more easy to see a horrible murder, act of violence, or other violent activities in a movie rating (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17) than relatively innocuous nudity (not talking explicit sex).

Clearly violence is more acceptable than sex / nudity here; but why?
What can we do to change this?

Children will see 8,000 acts of violence on TV before they leave elementary school. 200,000 before they are eighteen (CSUN). Yet on TV, they won't see a nipple (to use an example). Even if we limit this to adults, movies will show a disproportionate number violent acts relative to the number of sexual situations shown.

This is exactly the same situation in the UK. Less so in Europe.

I don't think violence is actually more acceptable than sex, but that its portrayal in drama is easier to simulate. Anyone can make a programme with fake guns and stage blood etc and make it appear real. Sex, unless you're limiting it to frottage, which is a bit niche, requires a degree of nudity and a context that is harder to include in TV and film. You normally find there's a token sex scene - maybe a topless woman and a fumble under the sheets, but to depict sex with the same convincing nature as violence would mean that the programme makers would transgress the UK's archaic decency laws.

There is a lot more nudity in European TV and commercials are more risqué, but even then, full sex isn't shown on mainstream.

Why of course! The FABLE of "Islamophobia" created and SOLD BY? Georgie Porgie Soros! There is NO SUCH THING. There IS a clear recognition of the brutal, barbaric and sadist TOTAL intolerance of the SO CALLED "religion of peace" As well as it's basic incompatibility with liberty. But you just keep swallowing those sugar coated BS pills the leftist media and ass kissing politicians keep feeding you...

I'm a bit busy at the moment and needed time to think how to respond to your rebuttal.

I have a good friend who is a Muslim, though not especially a practising one. She knows a lot more about Islam than me and we've talked about all this Sharia law thing and Muslim bashing etc.

Islam is a religion of peace but it's been hijacked by terrorists who purport to be representing a fundamental version of Islam. It's this that was behind 911 and 7/7 and all the recent stuff in Europe and has dripped into the public consciousness and created this anti-Islamic feeling - Islamophobia - call it what you well. I guess in this context the word phobia, which I suspect you took issue to, isn't a phobia in the sense of arachnophobia or agoraphobia etc, so maybe semantically it's slight off but hey ho!

I think part of the problem if you can call it that, is that we non-Muslims think that normal Muslims should be shouting from the rooftops in opposition to the terrorists who have given their religion such a bad name. The fact is, that people including Muslims just want to get on with their lives and don't think it's their responsibility to defend their religion. The Muslim Council of Britain have gone some way to redressing the balance but maybe this is one time when the sword is mightier than the pen.

Islam clearly has some work to do in terms of its PR and that's after taking my sugar coated BS pills. The treatment of women in places like Saudi Arabia is frankly disgusting although again I think there is a large cultural element to this and not wholly a flaw of Islam itself.

The recent programme by Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain 'The Chronicles of Nadiaya' has a section where she elegantly and poignantly explains her reason for wearing hijab and comes at a particularly appropriate juncture, given all the nonsense surrounding the burkini. If you're interested, the relevant part of the video comes at 17 minutes 45 seconds.

Chronicles of Nadiya

Thank you in advance for your measured response.

This is all part of the narrative surrounding Islamophobia. As AEP said, there are already limited Sharia councils in the UK, but there is no way that this is going to supersede statute.

Also, wearing the niqab is entirely cultural and not specifically Islamic.

My usual official protest is hereby declared. sign6

Starting with question #4: Winston Churchill could easily whip David Cameron's ass. Why did they make little Davy Cameron move next door?

Question #5: King Zog is a way cooler name than Pope John Paul II. I bet King Zog can dance and even sing R&B. I rest my case.

Question #6. The only birds in Wisconsin are when they give someone the middle finger. It should be Kentucky for being the only landlocked state on that list. Virginia and North Carolina border the Atlantic, while Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana border the Great Lakes. Kentucky is landlocked, but does make a lot of moonshine whiskey.

Question #7: Who would want to be named Galapagos Penguin? You'd get nicknamed Pagos. Rockhopper Penguin is a cool name, even Emperor Penguin is cool.

Question #9: I sure would hate for my banana to drupe. Who wants a drupy banana?

Question #10: I had sex with chick named Sherry. We'd been drinking Chardonnay.

Well... I define brand much like the rest of the English speaking world does.

Brand (noun) a type of product manufactured by a particular company under a particular name.

That would mean Guinness is the only one that is actually a brand. Guinness is a brand of Irish ale.

After thinking about this and taking into account what MF said, I believe the proper thing to do is to award the prize to Blueeyes2 as he got the proper correct answer. I knew what I meant but got it a bit mixed up #quizgate

Brand ( noun ) a type of product manufactured by a particular company under a particular name.

That would mean Guinness is the only one that is actually a brand. Guinness is a brand of Irish ale.

Champagne isn't a brand but Dom Pérignon is. Dom Pérignon is a brand of champagne.

You pointing out sherry is similar to cognac or champagne in that it needs to be made in a certain region only fortifies my point that it's not a brand since any company can slap their brand or label on a sherry as long as it follows the rules of how it's produced. I had already stated that twice (with cognac and champagne) but I didn't want to beat you over the head with it, but yes, you pointed out that sherry is also not a brand, it's a fortified wine made in or near Jerez, not a brand

Plus Chardonnay isn't specific to a region. You can grow Chardonnay anywhere and call it Chardonnay. It originated in Bordeaux but it does not need to be grown there. Chardonnay grapes are grown all over the world and made into wine. That wine varietal is Chardonnay then you put a label on it with a specific name for your Chardonnay and that would be the brand.

I mean you can say your interpretation of 2+2 is 5 but when you're running a contest you should probably use 4.

But it's your contest so you can make up your own answers. But at least one of your "winners" answered Guinness which is the right answer even though his reasoning is off. It's still the right answer. But again it's your contest so you can make up whatever answers you want. But they aren't correct in this specific one and it changes the outcome. But again, it's your contest and nothing serious is at stake.

Hmmm... I might have to declare this question null and void because it's open to too much interpretation. Well spotted.

Hmmm... I think you screwed this one up Danielle.

Chardonnay, for example, isn't a "brand" it is a varietal.

Sherry isn't a brand either. It's a fortified wine that comes in many brands or labels.

Cognac isn't a brand either. It's a variety of Brandy made in Cognac, France in a very specific way using certain grape varietals. Same with Champagne (must be made in Champagne, France in a certain way with certain grapes)

The answer should be Guinness because that is the only one that is a brand.

I guess absinthe can be the answer too but not because it is not a brand but because it contains wormwood. But really the answer should be Guinness because it would be the most correct because absinthe also comes in many brands or labels.

Depends how you define brand. Maybe could have found a better word but they are not just generic liquors. They are specific to a region or place or in the case of a Guinness, a traditional brand. Sherry isn't just fortified wine, it has to be made in the vicinity of Jerez.

Anyway if you don't like the answers you can go stick em where the sun don't shine!

Topic Irregular verbs

Yeah, that's what I thought. Sucking must be a gerund since it's the subject of the clause and must therefore be a noun.

This is how I would dissect it:

Sucking -- gerund/subject.

On tits -- prepositional phrase acting adjectivally and modifying the subject.

Makes -- the verb of the clause.

Yeah you're correct. I didn't analyze it properly

"Sucking on tits makes me happy" is an example of a gerund.

Verbal nouns such as gerunds (and infinitives) can still take their own objects.

So "sucking on tits" is the gerund-phrase subject of "makes."

Hmmm... you could be right.

Topic Irregular verbs
Posted 14 Aug 2016 05:16



A gerund is a verb with ing at the end that acts as a noun.


Example:

Smoking is bad for you.

In this example the verb "smoke" has ing at the end and acts as the subject of the clause and is therefore a noun.


Running is good exercise.

Sucking on tits makes me happy.


The third example is not the gerund, as this is simply the present participle progressive of to suck.

Topic How do I tell a fried that I want to have sex with her?
Posted 14 Aug 2016 05:02

I always feel so nervous about approaching her. I really want to have sex with her but can never find the right words. Any suggestions Aunt Olivia?

I think you should approach this carefully.

1. I think she will need to have similar feelings. If she doesn't feel the same way, then it could lead to embarrassment and spoil your friendship. If she is only interested in you platonically then the whole thing is pretty much a non-starter.

2. Assuming you can satisfy the criterion above, meet her for coffee or something and suggest that you think it would be nice to have a weekend away. This would be better than just coming out with it and saying, 'Can I fuck you?'

3. Once on your weekend, things should just lead to another.

Good luck

Not only that but they sometimes used a past tense entirely of their own invention. 'I seen' instead of 'I saw'; 'I done' rather than 'I did'. It's like the present perfect tense applied to the past. Of course they love me when I point out these flaws.

I do this sometimes, as this is normal in parts of the south west where I'm from originally. It's dialect.

I cannot for the life of me use lie and lay correctly (I'm guessing they are the most commonly misused ones). It's like a mental block. Now I just look it up every time (or use a different word).

These verbs are by far and away the most misused and misunderstood in the English language.

Posted 09 Aug 2016 13:25

I don't know about the rest of the world, but there can be a tendency amongst Scots to try to 'regularise' irregular verbs (or at least force some kind of linguistic intuition onto them). It used to wind me up, but I grew to love it because everyone understood what they were saying, so it was as good as using the 'correct' form.

Examples.

"Jamp" instead of jumped.
"Et" instead of ate (or sometimes instead of eaten, but that one still jars a little).
"Writ" instead of wrote (I know "writ" is a word in its own right, but not 'correct' when used in this way).

I've never heard anyone say jamp!

Writ is an interesting one. It could be dialect, in which case this could be correct among some non-standard speakers, though not being Scottish I'm not sure. Is it like being Frit instead of frightened?

Ate 'pronounced' as et instead of eaten is certainly a phonological variation either from a misunderstanding or just idleness. Et instead of ate as the past tense is a common variation.
