    hurtful.
    Well we're going around in circles, but this is the bit I don't get. I see the comment as somewhat facile, maybe even puerile, but hardly hurtful. Bear in mind, four times as many people have put their names on an online petition calling for his resignation than voted him in as Mayor of Perth a few weeks ago. (Not all from Perth, obviously)

    ...let me guess: straight? white? middle-aged?...you've managed to escape all this "stuff"...good for you...others weren't as lucky and go through life subject to slings and arrows that pass you by. A common tale of insensitivity, ignorance and incivility...a mix that usual ends up as scornful disdain in the guise of "genuine curiosity"...

    Of course....Ant can rationalize anything.

    I appreciate it, but don't bother trying to reason with an irrational person, Edmond.

    He has been weaseling out of responsibility for his behaviour on this forum for fourteen years, and probably all his life outside the forum. It is his personality type, and why he was attracted to law in the first place.


    As for "going out of my way to on a forum to antagonize, threatens others with violence, ill-health and death", if anything fitting those categories has occurred in my posts, it is as a result of the continual and particularly nasty wind-ups and trolling by Ant and The Mutt Pack.....as many of us here have witnessed.

    And as they are perfectly well aware, as that is what was intended.

    ^^ I propose . . . stop making every thread about you and Ant and your infatuation with him. Try to address the topic while you're wanking over his pics

    TC- I am somewhat disdainful of 'gratuitous oversensitivity' when it gets to the point that people cannot even openly exchange ideas and opinions- and there is plenty of that around these days.
    But in many instances, I can not even work out what got them so worked up in the first place. Such as Basil's comment

    If you're talking about someone who goes out of their way to on a forum to antagonize, threatens others with violence, ill-health and death, and then plays the victim then no.

    Well why would you when you're not the target of it.

    Despite what some* will have you believe you don't often find yourself on the receiving end of such things if you're a hetrosexual white male. Which is kinda the point.





    *Usually other hetrosexual white males who think that others having equal rights as them somehow makes them victims.

    It's an internet forum TC, and a somewhat rambunctious one at that. So I play along in the sandpit with the other kiddies. So do you- so what?

    And I still haven't received any feedback as to why the quoted comment is considered hurtful by some.

    Because it denies people the right to own their identity. It is not *that* difficult a concept.

    ^^ A eunuch is a castrated male. What of them? If 'he' wishes to change her gender identity to 'she', OK- but that person is still genetically speaking a male. We cannot change that.

    Again, mixing up "genetics" with "identity".

    Not really. They can identify as they like.

    "I'm a woman."
    "No you're not."

    They're still identifying as a woman.

    ^^ Basil was surely referring to genetics, not identity.

    Think I am too. Factually, you can't actually change your gender in a genetic sense- I really don't think it offensive to point that out. But you can change your gender identity, and I personally don't have a problem with that.

    To me, you might deem Basil Zempilas' comment as being gratuitous or unnecessary- but offensive? Why?


    Sealioning (also spelled sea-lioning and sea lioning) is a type of
    trolling or harassment that consists of pursuing people with persistent requests for evidence or repeated questions, while maintaining a pretense of civility and sincerity.[1][2][3][4] It may take the form of "incessant, bad-faith invitations to engage in debate".[5]

    So, a patently false accusation (and a ridiculous term) accompanied by no attempt to answer the question. OK- guess we're done with this thread.

    Why the fcuk do so many potentially-interesting threads on TD descend in purile slanging matches? This is one reason why (IMHO), TD is going down the pan - it's the same of group of morons who want their 30 seconds of fame by fcuking up a thread.

    The problem is if mods banned these idiots, there would be no posters left...
    Groping women when you're old is fine - everyone thinks you're senile
