God bless the internet, where you can meet ALL kinds of people. Apparently, because I believe, as pointed out previously, that the term "fundie" is extremely negative, I am now officially a fundamentalist (I think my gay and bi friends can attest that I am not), a dumbass, and I deserve to be physically beaten.

Wow. The people you meet on this thing.

I suppose in a way it's good to know there are people out there who believe I should be physically harmed for my beliefs, forewarned is forearmed.

I think you have met catwoman at one of Amber's parties. As a joke she used the gym in the hotel while in costume and posted it on youtube.

78 or more today, /b/tards want her dead. The good comments are all thumbed down and hidden.


People are really fucked up.

I'm amazed at the number of people who fail to realize that there are real human beings on the other end of the internet and fail to realize the same etiquette should apply.

They're just upset at Christians because Jesus told them they're wrong to throw stones.

I've finally found a real response for the jerkwad guy who said that but wow, yeah. You have to wonder how much of a percentile his sort stands for.

Let's just say that I have GOOD REASON as to why I do not discuss politics anymore. Very good reason. I don't like threats of physical violence to my person because of what I think.

I can totally understand that, especially now, obviously.

It seems to me one side of the coin is more likely to resort to that, but I'm not going to name anything on the risk of someone threatening to assault me.

I'm confused. You say you're not a fundamentalist Christian, but you're offended by a pejorative term for them (not for Christians in general). Am I missing something?

I'm not trying to be confrontational... I just want to understand your side of this.
Fritters: Christ - Believe - by Lizzaehfritters on October 7th, 2008 06:12 pm (UTC)
Ain't no thing. It's a negative term that is generally applied to ALL Christians, which is what bothers me. Most people do not bother to differentiate the gradations of my religion and lump us all in the with the most intolerant they see. Not that I'm saying that fundamentalists are intolerant, but they are known to be less tolerant than the mainstream, in general. And the main thing that bothers me is that it's a specifically negative term. Very few of those are allowed nowadays except to white men and Christians, IMHO. So anyone who uses the term is generally bashing the entire religion, fundamentalist or not.

It just occurred to me that that was the wrong reply. Unnecessarily wordy. I'm offended by the "n word" when applied to black people. I'm not black. While I AM Christian, the upshot is it's a derogatory term, and we should be past those by now.

what about when black people use the "n word" themselves? Especially in order to differentiate themselves from white people?
Fritters: Ed Thinking by Frittersfritters on October 10th, 2008 04:56 am (UTC)
Honestly, that still squicks me, but I think that's more of a personal thing. I think even if a black person uses the term, I feel it denigrates them and puts them into a negative stereotype. Some obviously feel differently. Any group can call themselves whatever they like, I just think some of it comes across less positively than they might think.

I dislike any negative terminology that shoehorns people into broad categories, honestly, although being human I still do it occasionally.

understandable. My maori friend and I (me being caucasian) constantly joke about those catagories. But joking is one thing when each are cofortable with those terms. But when its being purposely used to denigrate, then that definitely is another thing.
