But then, I've always had a soft spot for the totally batshit insane fuckwits. Emily Whatserface-Hyphen and her alien Annunaki masters who are towing the earth out of the solar system. ThomasDF and his War With No Rules. Shamwarmi and his "no seriously, I am actually a God" ravings. Watchman and his endless screeds about nothing in particular.

They were so much more fun to take the piss out of than this insipid modern lot.

Don't remember her. The reasoning sounds of someone who spent too much time in CO2 rich environments.
Myrrh. Definitely tried my patience.
Erin's last post was the one banning her. It seems fitting somehow.

Sine!!!!!!!!!!!! So pleased to see you. I hope this isn't just a post and run.

IngoB and his intransigent anti-Protestant bigotry hidden in vast reams of text caused Wood to put up his hands and say "I've better things to do with my time than argue with idiots like that" (paraphrase).

If I could have one of them back, it wouldn't be IngoB.

No bloke isn't the equivalent to chick. Chick implies stereotyping and sexism. No one uses the word bloke around here, but I don't think it implies the degradation of a person because they are male. Chick is at about the level of 'fag' for a gay man.

Dave Marshall. If one argued he got all "I'm sorry you find this so threatening, it just goes to show how much vested interest there is in not being really reflective of the lived lives of ordinary Christians".

Both Dave Marshall and Radical Whig fit that description, (although I have no recollection of either of them being planked under those circumstances.)

Radical Whig is who I was thinking about. He was comparing Trisagion's employment in the RC Church in light of the child abuse scandal with being a willing participant of the Nazi government. Right after that he went bye-bye.

No bloke isn't the equivalent to chick. Chick implies stereotyping and sexism. No one uses the word bloke around here, but I don't think it implies the degradation of a person because they are male. Chick is at about the level of 'fag' for a gay man.

Oh FFS. As a North American, you have permission to replace "bloke" with "guy".

Or you could just wander off on your personal crusade to defend women until you catch a man-cold.

Okay girlie man

Who was that guy who used to bring up speaking in tongues all the time? He had a red avatar, I seem to recall. A member of some sect.

Squiggle Andrew and Myrrh used to bring out good posts from other shipmates here in refuting their twatishness.

That last sentence is my experience of him, too. He had several incarnations here, and IMHO gradually got much better. And he was kind to me, on one or two occasions. I'd like him to come back.

Actually, he briefly surfaced, within the last couple of weeks, IIRC, about the Syrian situation. (I think it was in Purg.) He said he'd love to come back, if he didn't have so much on his plate already.

I don't know what the male equivalent of "chick" would be. "No prophet" perhaps?

I do know that "girlie man" is intentionally insulting to women, implying as it does that being like a woman is shameful for a man. N.P. surely knew that, making his use of it, um, ironic, perhaps? I dunno. The logic of his choice of that insult isn't immediately apparent.

Radical Whig was who I was thinking of. He wanted to turn the C of E into some kind of secular drinking club. Dave Marshall was of a different sort. He wanted to turn the C of E into something like the Theosophists. Bit of a crusader. Any thread was equally in danger of a sudden and inexplicable injection of his patented brand of mystical woo woo. Good times.

You may read this: Hey baby, street harassment, a good description of daily lived experiences. And yes I am fucking sensitive about such stupidity. For good fucking reason. If you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem. The word "woman" comes to mind. Oh or is it locker room talk?

And where does that article mention the word "chick"?

You seem to be confusing a rejection of your particular brand of perceived sexism with a general rejection of the sexism experienced by women. There isn't anything in that article I disagree with. But unless I've missed it, it provides no support for your assertion that "chick" is intended to demean.

Oh, for God's sake. I'm quivering with outrage.

The opposite of "chick" is "dude". What, were you people raised by wolves?

I feel like swatting a couple heads with a surfboard.

Ah, DUDE. Of course. Sorry, that term doesn't get used over here. Bloke is the local version and I couldn't translate.
