Reddit MRA: My eminent businessman friend who is totally not made-up refuses to be alone in a room with a woman

This seems like a completely reasonable course of action:

Oh, by the way, I know a guy who’s a CEO of a Fortune 500 company, and he can fly and turn invisible.

Not at the same time, though. When he forgets and turns invisible while flying, he plummets to earth.

Quacker: @Holly

Have you really? not sure if serious or being sarcastic lol….if its true that’s pretty neat.

I was having dinner with someone and quoted something Holly said, and the person I was having dinner with knew who she was. He was an FOF.

In another context someone I was dating had someone I’ve never met, nor had any online interaction with gush about my political writing (esp. as it relates to torture). The world is small.

Treglodyte: While I may have forgotten a single comma, the sentence was actually fine form of English. No, I never recognized any character.

a fine form. Perhaps you meant to say it was finely formed English.

Both are, debateably (because euphony is part of the finess of a phrase; Churchill for one should most probably have decried it as muddy.

What, one wonders, is a “children based conception”? Were you saying children created it? I suppose, but then it’s an act of precocious intelligence, and deserving of adult praise.

So that can’t be it.

Were you saying it was based on children? Again, that steals the sting… Peter Pan is based on children, so too is Narnia, and Harry Potter.

They may be argued about, as to literary merit, but none of them have been ever thought of as something purely for children, no matter that they appeared to be about children.

If, as I believe, what you meant to say was, “How old does it make you thatt you are interested in a childish creation, then you have an actualy insult in the sentence.

But you didn’t, which means (if we are correct in the contextually defensible determination) that you meant to make an insult, and failed, which means it wasn’t a very fine piece of English at all, no matter that grammatically it was diagrammable.

The meaning was lost, it was muddy, and trite.

But, if you can stick the flounce, you can crow your, “victory”, and be reasonable certain your cheering section will not come here to see the actual carnage.

I just love reactionaries.They have such incredible thinking skills and they have such deep intuition. They are such creative and original thinkers, clearly transcending the fear and ignorance deeply ingrained in the minds of us all. Their charity and kindness are just as boundless. They are truly capable of understanding and appreciating people as they are as complex human beings as opposed to distastefully harping on people who don’t conform to their narrow ideologies.

Oops. I had a sarcasm.

Tregd, love, Rutee is cis and not an asshole; actually she is kind of an awesome person. I realize you may be unfamiliar with this concept.

I, however, am trans all over the place. Not only that, but I have my own weird pronoun, “zie.” AND I’m childish! I adore My Little Pony! You can attack me!

XD XD XD XD XD XD

Rutee: The Happy Meals thing is still going on, I think, so if you want to get one…

This conversation is making me wonder if my Dad still has the ET glasses that we collected from either McDonalds or Burger King when I was a kid.

Oh…oh my God…are these it?? http://derpyhoovesnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/My-Little-Pony-Happy-Meal-Toys-1.jpg

I know where I’m going to shamefully go for lunch tomorrow. Hope the bronies didn’t get them all first…ugh. How is it they look better than the toys that you actually have to pay for with the shitty hair mane?

Also this will be my exact reactions haha http://bronies.memebase.com/2012/03/18/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-brony-disappointment-in-every-happy-meal

and on the topic of being a geek…my bedroom is full of toys, artbooks, manga, graphic novels, plushies, plushies I’ve made etc. It’s who I am and that’s how I likes it 😛

@Pecunium

It must be a part of the six degrees of separation thing. I find it really fascinating, particularly about blogs like these or anything pertaining to gender issues, but that’s most likely my own bias getting in the way since no one in my group really cares about these things. Unless they’re hiding it.

Why did I get so far behind on this thread? After all, I’m a trans person with an anime icon and an anime inspired nym.

The thing about academic culture that one of the trolls posted earlier was rather hilarious. I’m FAAB and was a philosophy major in undergrad. My faculty adviser was a guy, I met with him alone in his office, like the other students (maybe a bit more, actually, I debated hard whether or not to go to grad school, he tried to get me to consider applying to their department). I was also the only non-male regular member in the philosophy club until my senior year (which had the same professor as an adviser). I’ve been to male professors houses with groups of students. I’ve had coffee with male professors and other students.

I’m thinking that if having one of the students you advise in your office or talking to you in a coffee shop over coffee is suspicious, it’s because there is either something untoward going on in the specific situation (or a suggestion of such), a history of problems with the professor, or the university has already had massive issues with sexual harassment and professors behaving inappropriately as a part of their general university climate.

I know things have moved on, but I just wanted to say that I had totally interpreted that avatar as a purple dragon’s head… with the head facing left… Now that I know it’s not I’m still having a hard time seeing the actual picture… like when you look at the classic “two faces/chalice” picture and can only see one of the images… weird!

I still see it as someone peering out, sidewise, over her shoulder, from under larger, but not huge hat.

RE: Kate

I’m with you; that’s what I thought Rutee’s icon was.

RE: Everyone

Aw man. I’m trans and that troll actually managed to upset me a bit with the slur-slinging. I’m kinda disappointed in myself; you’d think after my own dad told me I’d never fit in male society, I’d have gotten a thicker skin…

Rutee, yeah, but when i see it I see the hat only letting one eye show, sort of as The All-Father is described in norse myth.

@LBT – Oh, I’m sorry if you were upset! The transphobic stuff the troll posted was really disgusting (I can’t believe that advert he posted was actually a real advert that someone thought would be a good idea! Really?!). It’s all very well and good to say “Well, if you get upset you’re just giving them what they want” but that doesn’t magically cancel out your feelings, does it? I hope you’re OK 🙂

The advert isn’t exactly ‘real’. It’s based on a real ad though, for tampon libra. They did a “I am sorry you’re offended” apology, but at least they stop using it.
But the internet being the internet (ie there are plenty of terrible people on it and almost nothing disappear) someone added on the image all the implied stuff. (the text and voice are not in the initial ad)

Even the slogan is different. It was “libra gets girls” (strongly implied REAL NATURAL CIS !!!!!!1!!!!eleveven!!) I seems bigots are also morons (shocker) if they need to insist so much to make the offensive part obvious.

It’s okay, it was just a brief sad. The whole reason I comment here is to learn to deal with assholes and trolls, so it’s all part of the experience.
