Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

laughing at Christians for posting ridiculous things isn't at all "Anti-Christian" posting.

Also afaik you can make fun of goofy Muslim beliefs as much as you want, just doubt people on 2p2 have as many Muslims as Facebook friends. Where it really obviously goes over the line is when you go into ethnic/racial stereotypes and slurs, of which there are many for Muslims and very few for Christians as a general group.

fwiw I think there's a much stronger argument to be made that 2p2 needs to crack down more on anti-ginger posting than anti-Christian posting.

2+2's atmosphere of religious intolerance has scared off members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, which is why, outside of the bizarre Sklanskian alternate universe that's RGT, so few of them are regular posters.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

Religion is a belief you choose to have. Ethnicity and sex are something you are born with.

Posting "lol christians" is very different than making Holocaust jokes or calling someone a terrorist. Not to mention, by definition it's pretty much impossible for the dominant cultural group in a society to be "persecuted". My experience with persecution-complex Christians is that they think people disagreeing with or not kowtowing to their beliefs is equivalent to the sort of systematic racism minority groups actually endure.

The unnecessary apostrophe in "honkey's" bothered me more than the content. Good god man.

Because there are 11. But that's provided that you even believe in history.

Exactly-- Christians and white people have been the dominant groups for so long (in American society) that they consider expressions of equality for and/or respect of other people's beliefs or lack thereof "persecution". Like it's discrimination to not recognize their inherent superiority/"right"-ness.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

Yeah, that's the problem. People shouldn't be taking this viewpoint because someone hasn't been persecuted. Being hateful towards someone regardless of how persecuted they've been shouldn't matter. But I know people being hateful towards a non-persecuted group will be punished slower than someone going fig guy on someone.


But we can all agree Yeota's posting has been pretty terrible, and while I think I understand his viewpoint, it's being expressed in such a poor manner, that no one is going to take it seriously.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Holiday Discussion

My point is that what majority groups often consider "persecution" or "hatefulness" isn't that at all, just an unwillingness to recognize their inherent superiority.

At least Yeota went up and said something to the zontals. I can't find a good reason to approach 99% of them.

You've never worn blackface. That's a lie.
