I think context and how its delivered is key as well as how well you know the person its being said to.

There are many things said in jest that could be taken offensively by others. The world is increasingly swinging towards a nanny state society, whereas we need to find an acceptable balance.

Loads of things were said and done as I grew up that are no longer acceptable and rightly so, but lets not be too precious as a society.

Absolutely, the hysteria about name calling in the media is ridiculous. I’m just calling out Consis hypocrisy,  he’s the first to get up on his high horse about such matters and yet there he is,  shouting at a total stranger about their mum being a fat tart. He’s all over the place.

I was not against singing the Ian Durrant takes it up the arse song as a youngster, but wouldn't partake in it now (even though he's a hun ;) )

I know some people experiment when they're younger, but with Ian Durrant?

One is hate speech, by means of a slur. 
 

One is not, whilst being unsavoury.

 

You've missed out other points I made. It would be hypocritical if I called him a homophobic slur, and tried to pass it off as a playground insult. 
 

Calling him stupid names etc is certainly unsavoury, and definitely you could argue the point it shouldn't be said, but you're doing that thing many anti LGBT folk do, when they bridge a huge gap between two things and declare someone else a hypocrite. 
 

Unsavoury comments do not equate to hate speech. For a lot of reasons. 
 

Like I say, you could certainly make the argument that you shouldn't be shouting such nonsense at other grown men, but in this case you're doing your usual 2+2=5. 
 


 

 

Nah Consi 

It's not up to the person giving out the abuse to decide what is more hurtful. 

Only the recipient can answer that question. 

It's maybe better not to practice abuse at all rather than have a pecking order of who it's OK to insult and who it isn't. 

It's your problem to deal with I'm afraid.

If I called someone a homophobic slur in public, the likelihood is I'd get charged for hate speech. 
 

If I call someone a mink, whilst it might hurt the other person, and in the scenario I described, its unlikely it did, I won't get charged. Whilst Johnny Law isn't always right, there are reasons for that. 
 

Namely, no ones been killed, persecuted, or made illegal for being a "mink." A term that takes on different meaning across different parts of the country. A term many use flippantly, to describe a litany of people/things/situations. For example, I think folk who sit and pick their toes, are minks. It's a catch all term used for behaviour you don't like, in Kents case, bring a hun. 
 

"Poof" the term MHD used, only has one meaning/intention, to insinuate someone is homosexual, and to suggest that's a bad thing. Whether or not they are is irrelevant.  
 

I don't disagree regarding not practicing abuse. That's something we should all strive to, but I'm not perfect.
 

Trying to suggest any disparaging comment at all is also hate speech, along with terms like 'Poof' the N word, and other slurs often used on here, is nonsensical, for hundreds of reasons that will take this conversation long into the night. 
 


So in short, mink, whilst not a nice thing to say, and I agree, probably something someone shouldn't say, isn't equivalent to the N word, the term 'poof', 'paki, darkie etc etc that are often used on here. 
 

Id think a man in his 50's could see the stark difference and not pretend all insults are the same. 

 

You're confusing the legal aspects with the personal aspects. 

My view is that the personal impact can be just as hurtful so on that basis its better not to go about insulting people if you have any real compassion for other human beings. 

It's got nothing to do with my age.  I've felt that way for decades. 

Nae sure why you're taking the moral high ground here though. I think you're off piste.

Nobody is a cry baby. 

Consi thinks he can pick and choose who he hurls abuse at depending on what is legal or not. 

I just think thats a flawed argument. 

Nae tears anywhere min. Just a difference of opinion.

I wasn't particularly aiming my comments at any individual on here (tho there are some right fuckin' dreeps here). The fuckin' world is full of fuckin' wet wipe, bubblin' girlies, too ready to get offended by any cuntin' thing.  Fuck em.  They need to man up.  Words don't kill or injure.

Not necessarily about legality, more so history and context. I made it clear the law is often wrong, and I don't necessarily think it's right to throw people in jail for hate speech, rather try to re-educate them on why what they are saying is stupid and wrong. 
 

Kidding on that some words don't carry more weight than others, is you simply denying reality.  A guy in his 50's should understand that calling someone a homophobic slur, is definitely worse than me calling a footballer "mink" from the terraces. 
 

Whilst I do agree with your overarching point that we should look not to abuse anyone, I can't agree with your false equivalence. 
 

A difference of opinion, indeed. 

Indeed. 

I wouldn't think about calling someone a mink or a fat cunt.  Or a bald cunt or whatever it is you enjoy doing. 

You would. 

That's where we differ.

I'm not anti LGBT,  I don't have a problem with gay people, you've just made that up. You're doing that thing again where you attribute certain viewpoints to the wrong posters.  I don't shout insults in public about peoples mums,  you do. So I'd suggest you're the one that has to have a word with themselves. 

Ps. I don't give a fuck about you shouting abuse to Kunt about his fat minky tart of a mum,  like I said I was just pointing out your hypocrisy.

When I was a kid in primary school, my auld granny from deepest darkest Lanarkshire called farts "poofs". It was unfortunate that she owned a dog that suffered horrendously from vile smelling flatulence.

By the time we were about 10 and a bit more worldly wise, she would have my mates and I rolling on the floor saying shit like "oh no, the dog's poofed again"

My mother eventually told her why. She was adamant that everyone in her area of her generation referred to farting as poofing

Not about to dig up posts, calling people 'poof' isn't the best way to suggest you don't have a problem with gay people. 
 

 

 

I didn't call anyone a poof though,  I used it as an example of something that would offend you whereas you deem other personal abuse to be ok. Your comprehension skills are sorely lacking. Bored with you now so I'll leave it there.

A poof is a puff in Geordie speak.

My granny had a poofy 

Well, she called it that but it was essentially a foot stool 

Actually, is that "puffet"?
