Yeah, it's often the case that people can become lax in watching their behavior for following in another's footsteps, even if they've established that they don't like said person. Certain concepts of language and insults are easy to forget that someone may have a different meaning. Then again, to that it's hard to be 100% politically correct, and we need to take into account what the person intended.

And in the case of the term butthurt, since it's new it can have many concepts of meaning. But...by origin it came from the concept of spanking (as in parents) to imply the person was whining like a child. For it's meaning and how we use it in a sentence, that's really the definition that works. Just figured I'd add that. Still, many people have changed the concept of why they think it's an insult due to the amount of reaction images of people holding their butts posted on the net. Still, that's not what the true concept of the word came from.

I've got a counter-question.


Given that this forum isn't a gender studies course, and no one here is compensated for any time spent looking up articles, or references to scientific studies to prove a point, why is the onus on any regular poster here to educate people whose sole contribution to the forum was to complain about the feminist tones in what began as a handful of strips until we learned Tat's computer was also fueled on dudebro tears.


As a follow up.

Imagine this forum like a big room where a bunch of people who kind of know each other to know each other well are hanging out. Many different conversations are going on and then suddenly some stranger barges in and takes a dump in the middle of the room (where taking a dump is an allegory for expressing a patriarchal intolerance for any insinuation that women might not be treated entirely equally by society).

What obligates anyone to be polite to this dude who left a big steaming dookie in the midst of our nice conversations when really what they would like is to yell for them to fuck off out of here?


I just wanna add that any and anyone is free to join the conversation or to leave it. Many come and go, and some come back, multiple times. Also the crucial point is we know each other, there's no implication that we are this tight knit group of BFF's or anything of the sort. Some people are good friends, but it's not really about all that. Also, sometimes those nice conversations effectively become screaming matches, sometimes we get silly, and once upon a time we used to run around nakeds. But generally, no one is shitting on the floor. And if someone does, pitchforks and torches start popping out of hammerspace and into the hands of an angry mob, a mob angry that someone has just shit on their floor.

So you're saying that being "butt hurt" is the result of a verbal ass-whooping?

As a frequent deliverer and occasional receiver of verbal ass-whoopings, I'm okay with that. Consider my position on it changed.

I always thought of the forum more as our Cheers, anyone can stop on by, but there's definitely a bunch of regulars. Yes, that's right, I'm mother fucking Cliff Clavin.

If we can bring in spin-offs back to the original Cheers, I'll be Niles and make guest appearances. It fits since I'm new to the forums compared to others.

I'm content with being one of the bit players - Alan, Steve, Paul, Phil - who have maybe one line every 4th episode, and is largely ignored the rest of the time.

Are you in love with the nurse who takes care of your dad, sporko?
