So Uncomfortable
— Ace

In Britain, a dispute about a minor ticket features threats and lots of use of the c-word (profanity warning).

CNN immediately dubbed the angry man "a gentle giant with kind words for all."

4 I use the c-word canoderous. It's a made up word that means a difficulty involving my ballzack. Like this- I got snagged crossing that fence in a most canoderous way.

5 look, it's not about the facts of the parking ticket, it's about there being open season on UK's old men by parking meter maids. no justice, no wings!

7 Business Roundtable members are due to meet Obama in a closed-door session on Tuesday, where they may air their concerns.

It is not clear how many members of the group, whose companies sponsor health insurance for 40 million people, are considering any action. It is also not clear if the White House can stop the EEOC from challenging wellness programs.

A threat of a corporate backlash comes at a time when Obama faces criticism even from his Democrats' ranks that he had devoted too much political capital to healthcare reform.

16 Can you imagine what an American police officer would do if you had an exchange like this?

I can't believe the amount of restraint this guy is showing, it's purely because he knows he's being taped.

Most of my interactions with police are this dynamic but reversed, the cop screaming at some minor infraction.

17 Surely the threat to punch the meter guy is at least a misdemeanor.  Put the big man in real prison and let him show everyone how tough he is.

25 American Federation of Teachers, one of the largest teachers unions in the United States, passed a resolution last week to ban Coca-Cola from its facilities and events.

The teachers union stated its decision was based on human rights violations, which have been detailed in three books published several years ago.

The questions remain: why now and why is this important to a teachers union?

Because AFT is a labor organization, it will stand in solidarity with other labor organizations that have taken a stance against Coca-Cola, AFT spokesman Michael Heenan told Watchdog.org.

Coca-Cola responded to AFT's claims in an email to Watchdog.org, saying they were based on "outdated and erroneous allegations that we have repeatedly addressed."

28 Meh. Everybody's looking for their "N-word" these days that they can get all righteous about. Cunt goes back to Shakespeare's time at least. Cunt's even kinda cute sounding compared to euphemisms like "slash" "slit" "gash" etc. But, hey, by all means get upset about a word. Still, the word's much more ubiquitous in Britain than here. About the same as saying you're a "dick". Oh no! A genital euphemism with a hard sound to it! I shall now be all offended and such!!! I'm a victim. Give me money!

naturalfake, I was just thinking about the difference in opprobrium in the use of the two words, dick and cunt. You can call someone a dick here in the US without being called out on it. Of course, dick also gets all kinds of modifiers added on too -- head, wipe, wad, weed...

72 And remember, that the cops in Britain don't carry a gun, pistol, gat, hog leg, fire arm, and probably don't carry tasers, either. Maybe not even a night stick. So any vulgar sod feels it appropriate and safe to mouth off to the cops about little minor things. But boy, don't pay your BBC license fee or try to defend your home from an intruder, and the sky will fall on you. Wonderful country, Great Britain.

Glenn Reynolds correctly says chivalry was a system.  It implied behavioral obligations on both men and women.  We've lost chivalry, aka good manners, and that's why our society has become so coarse and vulgar.

He eventually said: "You are not like toothpaste." Since he obviously could not smell my breath over the phone, I am not sure what that might mean.

No. A double standard means the same phenomenon or behavior is judged by different standards depending on the circumstances or individuals involved. It does necessarily have anything to do with gender. For example, one could say that the MSM coverage of politicians' scandals exhibits a double standard, depending on whether they're Democrats or Republicans. Yes?

130 Different curse words carry different levels of intensity, even if they are referring to the same thing. There's a million words for penis. If a call some dude a tool, a dick, or a prick, they all have different meanings yet all mean the same thing. Just as there's a difference between calling somebody a homo and fag. The literal meaning of the curse word -- usually something genital or excrement related -- is not the actual meaning. The actual meaning is - I dislike you and look down on you. How intense that dislike is and how lowly I think you are will determine the intensity of the curse word employed. In America the c-word is generally the worse thing you can call a woman. In Britain is much more widely used, and therefore packs less punch. The more widely used a curse word is, the less powerful. Fuck used to be a lot more powerful in America, Massive overuse has severely weakened it's power. The literal meanings of curse-words are never their real meanings. Which is why foreign curse-words often sound silly and not especially insulting when you learn their literal meaning.

It's not that so much that as how ridiculous it is that "cunt" has suddenly become the outragey-how-dare-you-say-it n-word for fymynysts. Cunt is no more or less classy than many other euphemisms. For instance, do you find the euphemism "gash" the epitome of class? Or perhaps, "slit" is the proper word for polite society. Its pretty funny to be all blue-nosed about cunt exclusively, which is a rather abstract word, rather than say "gash" which brings a lot of baggage with it.

No.  In the context of this discussion, gender differences are exactly the point.  Or at least that was the subject of my comment.  As you said, my point was that the standards should be different for the individuals involved.  However, if the individuals involved insist on everything being treated exactly the same for them and denying that there are any differences to be considered, then they shouldn't demand special treatment.  Unfortunately, with the exception of the clear-thinking ladies on this site, that is very rarely the case.  Think physical qualifications for the military or firefighting.

A throwaway scene in the Walking Dead would have been shocking R-rated in a movies 20-30 years ago. Now Walking Dead has to try and come up with something ever more gruesome every episode, cause audience gets bored watching the same old Heads Getting Crushed, Eyeballs Getting Stabbed, Necks Being Bitten Into.

The campaign to ban words like "gay" or "fag" is, ironically, increasing the power of those words. "gay" as an insult had lost almost all power as an insult before the Left decided to ban it. Calling something gay had the intensity of calling something lame. Now that All Right Thinking People say you should never ever ever say it -- well now it can have some real insult power again.

It pisses me off that they give women special treatment in order to include them in the military, and in other jobs which require physical strength, etc.

 

If women want to qualify for a "man's job"...then they should truly be able to do as well as a man would.

No special treatment.

 

There actually are some women who are physically strong enough to carry a fellow soldier in a combat situation.

But there aren't many.

183 the female C word is a pretty strong vulgarity. That having been said, plenty of feminists seem more offended by words like "lady" and "girl". It just depends on who uses the word. from salon dot com: http://tinyurl.com/aqf8vyx

184 It's a bit odd -- we use ever stronger curse words with ever greater frequency -- yet we also seem to be banning more words than every - being heard using tranny or muzzie is an HR visit or much worse at most companies, even if you are reported using it after work or on lunch break.

191 That old man was clearly a tough old fighter who knew he was intimidating a fat and weak, non-fighter - not much of a contest. Pretty cowardly act and deserving a good shot of pepper spray - at the least. Scaring the hell out of a poor guy for five minutes who was just doing his job and threatening him repeatedly is not legal or moral. Hope he got some jail time out of it all and faced some guys just like he - but younger!

Gunny Highway used the word..."quif"...which is a word I'd never heard before.

 

"Mewling quim" is also a term that we can attribute to the Brits, I think.

It's one that should be used more.

It's perfect when referring to pajama boy types.

Posted by: SCIPIO AFRICANUS at November 29, 2014 06:23 PM (i5wUE) ***** Actually, I don't think he was intimidated at all. When the old guy told him he was afraid to look him in the eye without those sunglasses on, the meter maid guy whipped those glasses off lickety split. Second, he's a meter maid, not a cop. He has no arrest power. He just wasn't going to let the guy bait him into a fight that could get him in trouble. But if that old guy laid a hand on him, I guarantee you that the meter maid guy would have been game. I don't know if he would win. But he wasn't afraid.
