I agree with you Felix. My point was a general response, not a comment at your stance. To me, it's self evident that it's a form of hate speech. He has made statements favoring limiting the rights of a sector of society for no better reason than he doesn't approve of where their "pursuit of happiness" takes them. I find his attitude to be grossly distasteful.

I wasn't disagreeing with you either, I agree with what you said too.

What you said just got my mind going again and I wanted to say more stuff laughing8

He says now.



I'm NOT defending the CEO. I'm defending his right to say what he wants. He can be dumb and stupid and bigoted or whatever. He can still say it. If he technically has the right to say it, then fully has the right to say it. His stance is indefensable. He's freedom to say it isn't.

He said earlier in the thread.



The CFA guy may or may not be, but his anti gay marriage stance doesn't prove he hates gay people.

I'm not trying to soften the blow. It's just reality. People may reject the idea of gay marriage, doesn't mean they hate or fear gay people.


You're not defending him?

Topic Chic-Fil-A
Posted 10 Aug 2012 12:06

I defend the CEO's obvious hate speech for the same reason I defend anyone's. Because as long as even as narrow-minded, self important, self righteous, soap box standing, right wing nut job of a knuckle-dragging neanderthal as he can be free to open his mouth and make such an almighty fool of himself in public then we everyday citizens need not worry about being censored.

Hearing him spout his hatred maybe hard to listen too but as long as he can I know that freedom isn't dead.

His freedom of speech wasn't brought into question. Well, by me anyway... I never said he shouldn't say what he wants.

I was just wondering about those saying that just because someone is anti-gay marriage it doesn't make them anti-gay or homophobic. Like the ones coming to the CEO's defense by saying that. I don't get how that makes any sense. Especially seeing how the homophobes flocked to the chic-fil-a after they found out the stance. If being anti-gay marriage doesn't make you anti-gay, like some lushies are saying, then why did all the anti-gay people get so attracted to chic-fil-a? Weird phenomenon no?

That's like saying "I like you Milk_the_red.. But I think it's best you dont get married. I have my own reasons why that you don't understand so don't ask. I like you though, I swear.. How would you feel? Would you think I was your friend or not?

Posted 10 Aug 2012 09:36

The funny thing is this. Within "normal" people crowds, like my friends on facebook, my gay friends are the ones that are like "whatever, it's a chicken sandwich. who cares." While the straight people are the ones getting most offended.

I doubt your facebook is an accurate gage for anything... How many gay friends do you have? Are you saying they all feel the same way? I mean they have all told you in private that they don't care that Americans flocked to a restaurant they didnt care about before just because the word spread that they donate money to anti-gay groups? If I were gay that would make me sad, then bitter then hateful toward people going out of their way to attempt to lesser the quality of my life.

Have you stopped to think that maybe your gay friends don't mention their true feelings on facebook for everyone to see? Maybe they don't cause they know that many people on their facebook probably will defend Chic-fil-A's actions by saying its LEGAL for them to do what they do and its LEGAL for people to support the restaurant and their cause. Thats what it is, I used to go to chic-fil-A before. Its good ill admit, it was never busier than any other fast food chain. So guess what? It's not just about a chicken sandwich. It's about bigots being bigots but most bigots are cowards so they are bigots in this pussy ass way like flocking to chick-fil-A cause they know that they donate money to anti-gay groups. Where were they before? Where will they go next? I know where.... The next company or movement to say they hate gays, thats where they will go.

Most of American knows that gay marriage is going to happen sooner or later.


How about I lock you up in a little room without you knowing when you'll be free... BUT you should be okay with it because I assured you that sooner or later I will set you free. How about that?

Eh, not so sure the Chic-Fil-A stance is the equivalent to the civil rights movement.

Agreed its not. It's not equal to anything. It's its own thing and just because something has happened in the past doesn't make our current problems any less serious. I hate when people say "well there are people that have it worse" So what... Just cause someone has it worse than you doesnt mean shit.

I don't agree with CFA's stance. People should be able to marry whomever they wish. But let's not confuse CFA's stance of not agreeing with gay marriage as condoning or agreeing with the hate filled type tweet you quoted.

The CFA guy may or may not be, but his anti gay marriage stance doesn't prove he hates gay people.

I'm not trying to soften the blow. It's just reality. People may reject the idea of gay marriage, doesn't mean they hate or fear gay people.



So If I started a thread that said "I am anti black-marriage. I dont think black people should be able to get married"

You would defend me in the same way you are defending the Chic-fil-A CEO? You would say that just because felix thinks black people shouldn't be able to get married doesn't prove that he hates black people, he just wants to deny them one of the most important things a person can do, marriage. The ultimate goal for most people. To be married and happy.. Noooooo felix doesnt hate blacks, he just doesn't want them to be married and happy and have the same rights.

Is that what you would say LM?

what is the difference? The only thing I changed in that scenario is that I changed gay to black. See how all of a sudden it sounds like hate?

laughing8

I guess it depends on what hate speech really is. Is there a difference between being anti gay marriage and being anti gay? If it is hate speech, it's illegal and can be prosocuted as such.


No... Not really. How can you be pro-gay but want to deny them marriage? How? It's a goddamn religious sacrament you are denying someone. How can you say you don't hate someone you are denying one of the most holy sacraments there is. How is it anyone's business? Again, can you imagine if I went so far as to start a fucking organization to prevent black marriage? NO ONE would say I wasn't a racist. People that are anti-gay marriage are anti-gay.

It may not be technically hate speech under the law. The law is designed to catch the stupid hicks that run around spray painting I hate spics or blackies or ching chongs on school walls. Not the more intelligent people that know how to veil hate enough as to weasel out of it when confronted. I see it all the time. I see it cause I'm a minority. They say it thinking I'm too stupid to understand then I speak up and their faces go slack and they stutter... So don't come back and say that because you haven't seen it, it doesn't exist. Don't come back and say stupid shit like that, please. I'm begging you.

A old friend of mine used the same word and I called him out on it. We aren't friends anymore.


Did you like put your half full beer down, stand up and say..

"That word is highly offensive because I have a black friend! I must excuse myself because I am highly offended by that word, I bid you good day sir."

Then your friend was like "oh come on lafaytette I was jesting!"

And you just cut him off "I said good day!"

Did it go like that kinda?

I have to totally agree with the OP with this one. I have not a single athletic bone in my body, so I have not been watching the Olympics and I must admit I am confused. While I praise this man for his courage, I do have to ask why this man, and only this man was able to compete and...



Because he was the only disabled athlete that was good enough. It wasn't a charity to let him compete. He was fast enough.

He qualified the same way sprinters with two legs do.

does this mean the Olympics and the Paralympics in the future will be a combined event??? How are they going to say no to the next disabled athlete wanting to compete against abled bodies without being hypocritical. Is the Olympics becoming too PC???


No, that's silly.

omg, best Vlog EVER! she has a new fan!

that said, i think that we should do the same with guys. they should get extra points for big packages! how come the beach vball girls have to wear bikinis but the guys don't have to wear speedos? swimmers too, for that matter - i want to see them looking like the divers! and if they are too slim or look a little femme, they shouldn't be allowed to compete. can't wait til the winter olympics - ice skating is going to be really really short without any guys competing!

They don't have to. They were wearing pants in one of the games.

And like just saying... Wouldnt it be men dictating the look of the fellow above, you posted and the male figure skaters too? Wouldn't they, like the women, be influenced by men in their looK? What can I say, us men are so influential.

Why is that, why is it that just because the straight male likes certain things do women just succumb? Or maybe the beach volleyball girls wear bikinis because that's what they learned how to play the sport in so they feel more comfortable. I mean athletic girls wear bikinis to the beach. It makes sense to me. I don't think its a bunch of sexist men making them wear bikinis.

Are we not all human beings and don't have a collective responsibility to each other?

If we somehow lose sence of collective beings, we are just rudderless ship in an ocean of dangers posed by adverse envirnoments.

We must explore the Universe and also take care of the poor and less fortunate elsewhere in all parts of the World.
Both can and should go hand in hand.

To all the comments made to my observation, I think hardly deserve much to be said.
Feelings arouse from a mental activity; if one has no nerves and lacks an adequate nervous system, he can hardly feel the pinch, love, emotion or any sensations.
All feelings emerge from one's mind and NOT FROM HEART.



Do we need any more elaborations?

Hey guys, thank you so much to everyone that said congratulations to me in this thread and the nice notes I received. Also, thank you to everyone that gave me their vote of support during the competition. I really appreciate every vote and comment. Thanks to my closer lush friends that encouraged me and believed in me when I mentioned I wanted to try to enter this competition.

There were some really great stories and I imagine the judges had a tough job on their hands.

Congrats to Dancing Doll and TXgirl!

Dancing Doll is someone that I have learned a great deal from and anyone wanting to learn what writing is all about, could do worse than starting with her impressive collection of work here. She is a true writer and I'm honored to place along side her, really honored.

TXgirl! Placing twice in a row now, now that is very impressive as well. Awesome!

Nice going top ten! And everyone else who entered!

Thank you Sprite for proofreading last minute for me like at 11 pm and sending it back to me before I woke. You're such a great friend. (she doesn't do that normally so don't go hit her up for proofs, she's busy)

And thanks Nic for having these competitions for us and creating Lush (you too gav). They are so fun and competition makes us all strive to be better. Hoping the next one is even bigger!

Posted 06 Aug 2012 19:15

Question: "What if Pistorious would have won? What if he would have won gold? What would you think if you were the silver medalist? I honestly have a hard time with this question."

Answer: It would raise the bar on what is possible, what we should expect from ourselves. No excuses, and no more allowance to what we can't.

Yes I totally agree that it would raise the bar on what we can do. Like the power of the human spirit and the power of the human body to adapt.

BUT...

I feel the only way we could ever really know if the legs give him an advantage or not is if a current sprinter - God forbid - got into an accident where he losses both legs below the knee. If they fitted him with cheetah blade legs and he trained to get to tip top condition and then they officially compared his new times to his previous times. I think then it would be pretty conclusive evidence either way. At the moment I just don't understand how they can really know if it helps or hinders him.

Also, I mean what if oscar wouldnt have had the muscles in his lower legs needed to make it? We just can't know. And these other athletes sacrifice everything to get to the olympics too. It is unfair.

Part of me thinks its great he competed. Just so many "*" possibilities. You know? Could be a mess in the future.

Posted 06 Aug 2012 16:40

http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02278/PISTORIUSREUTERS_2278710b.jpg

Oscar Pistorius, as the world is now aware, is an olympic sprinter for South Africa.

He was born without his legs, below the bottom of the knee. (I think that's it, I'm going off what I remember from the broadcasts.)

I saw him run the race to make it to the semi-final and I felt totally happy for the dude. I mean he did so well and even eased up to cross the finish line and qualified easily. I got hit with the realization of how hard this dude must have worked, how well his parents did raising him, how much hope he probably gives to children with his same "disability". Because to him, it is not.

I was caught up in the moment of it all was happy for him and then thought, man I hope he does good again! He came in last in the semi-final but not by a lot. I noticed the frustration in his face. I thought, well yeah man, its beyond fathomable that you made it this far... But then I thought, well, they improve swim suits, balls, turfs, running shoes... His blade legs are equipment too... why not improve those?

Every amputee is different. Are these the only officially sanctioned legs? I mean what if they can improve them to make them more real. I know they supposedly tested them to make sure they didn't give him an advantage and they clearly didn't. So do they improve them for next time if he makes it again? Or for whatever the next track event is?

What if Pistorious would have won? What if he would have won gold? What would you think if you were the silver medalist? I honestly have a hard time with this question. I know it's oscar's dream to run in the Olympics and if you are competing, then a medal is in your dreams too. It's also the silver medalists dream... One man's dream doesn't hold more weight than another's (IMO). Wouldn't then this really bring into question wether or not those legs gave him an advantage?

I mean, he will never break an ankle, his toe nail torn out by someone stomping on it by accident. That stuff happens. What if he falls and hits another runner? I imagine those legs would do more damage to another runner than flesh legs. I don't understand how the legs really work. But he doesn't feel the same burn in the calves as other runners. Or you can argue that the foot motion is always perfect. You could also argue that he can concentrate all his training on less muscles. I mean the questions would be endless if he would have won and you were one of the losing runners. Not trying to be insensitive just thinking about about some of the criticisms that could be thrown at him.

What if there is a swimmer that looses a leg? If a runner can, why not a swimmer competing with a prosthetic leg designed for swimming?

Do you think this kind of thing in the olympics opens up a can of worms?

Were they playing with fire letting Oscar Pistorius compete?

Are the chances of another person like Oscar making it this far so unlikely that all these questions don't matter and its a case by case basis and that's it so good for him?"
