Lets go overboard. Come up with something that needs to be banished cause SOMEONE might take offense.
No more Yankee Pot roast. Cant call it that anymore. Yankee is first off, an insult to northerners. Secondly, it is a term used during the Civil War. Pot has to go..insulting anyone over weight with a belly. Also refers to a drug that might be illegal. And a Roast is a gathering to make nasty jokes about someone, pick on them and be a bully.
Your turn.....laugh

Naturally, I find the term "white wine" offensive. I'm sure black wine is just as good. "Red wine" is not much better, communists have to drink something.

I think it is offensive when specific attention is brought to a person of color to be the first to accomplish something.

Case in point......
The first African American to give a speech in Congress
The first African American female astronaut
The first African American baseball player (although back then they said black referring to Jackie Robinson)

You get the idea. The more attention is brought to a person being "black" the more it shows that racism will never stop.

I think everything with Red in it should be banned so not to offend anyone red, includimg Cincinnati Reds and Red-light districts.

Like, do you ever hear, “White male with genealogy papers and sterling, pedigree family tree dating back to Hadrian graduates from Norte Dame”. ? We are in such overkill about terminology...in the movie “Ghost”, Whoopi Goldberg’s character, and her sisters, refer to “A WHITE guy...”. So, it’s not just one side that “clarifies” a person’s race. “ Law &Order programs frequently refer to suspects, et al, as black, or Japanese, and so on. May I ask just one question, of anyone out there...what’s the beef? I mean, the REAL beef? If nothing negative is meant by a description, and so many cultures engage, why the constant kerfuffles over it? Why make a problem where there isn’t one?dunno

Yes, and whenever I see your name I think of cute fuzzy little nuts. Go figure...what’s in a name? Somewhere in Idaho is a guy named Max Boner. No shit...his folks must have had a hilarious sense of humor...

Politically correct stuff has taken certain issues like stealing our countries from the people that are still here to a full blown lets make everything not PC. In doing so it makes thing so much tougher to politically correct Politically. Sorta like a conspiracy even though we all know there is no such thing as a conspiracy.

It detracts from the achievement itself. First black X is another way of saying king of the barnyard as though an entire race was made for a lower stream of remedials. Is there nothing good they can honestly say about the speech itself? Its making an entire race look like women's football.

PC should be to NOT ask race or gender. But, Madison Ave wants to see who are the biggest suckers to peddle their crap to. Every survey wants your race, age, sex and income level. Then the PC crowd wonders why things dont get better.
I think we need to change the name of a mailbox. It is sexist. Besides, males dont have a box do they. New term, gender neutral box.laugh

No, it doesn't detract from the achievement.

It highlights the greater achievement against the odds and it highlights the shame that it's taken this long.

They're spelled differently and have different etymologies.

In response to: Middle English (in the sense ‘travelling bag’): from Old French male ‘wallet’, of West Germanic origin. The notion ‘by post’ dates from the mid 17th century.
In response to: late Middle English: from Old French masle, from Latin masculus, from mas ‘a male’.
Your type of foolishness is why things are so slow to get better.

Your joke was jolly scintillating, as is discrimination when you're the one who gets to dish it out.

Back in 2008, right after I’d moved back to the beach, I was in a small grocery store getting a few things. The clerk asked me how my day was going; when I asked her the same, she said, “Well, I’m steamed. I’m on overtime, and my WIFE is needing me home”. I just nodded, smiled, and asked for a lighter and coffee creamers. Putting these items in my grocery bag, she said, “That reminds me—I need to get some smokes for MY WIFE”. It appeared she either wanted a reaction or just felt it important to make sure I knew she was gay. I did not react, as it hardly surprises me that some women have wives and some men have husbands. At least one more time she asserted having a “ wife” at home. I believe she was going for shock value, and getting none from me upset her planned self- victimizing. ( had I reacted with surprise, she most likely would have found that a wedge to accuse me of being prejudiced, etc...just saying...) so, why IS it important to “qualify” self, or another, by making adjective-supporting statements? We don’t say, “I’d like you to meet my new assistant manager, he’s the first tri- racial, bi- s*xual sight and hearing- impaired sufferer of acute anxiety attacks brought on by terrorizing memories of a decadent, over- bearing third-in-a-row step-father we’ve ever hired. But hey, he’s a gem!” I really am being serious—isn’t making qualifications contrary to the whole idea of inclusiveness, anyway. It’s like saying, “I love you unconditionally...But,..” knowwhatimeanjellybean?

Wiki: Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as a social group. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements.
There could be any number of reasons why this woman was identifying herself as gay and married.

My daughter was 15 years old before anyone referred to us as a family. If you don't fit the mold, you tend to get treated as a single person with no dependents, or responsibilities. Maybe this woman was regularly targetted for overtime, whilst those with traditional families were given more flexibility.

I have a lousy gaydar, but you don't come across as a rufty-tufty hetersexual rugby player even in writing, Ro. Perhaps she was seeking commonality, friendship and maybe human rights support.

Or maybe she was just chuffed to bits that she was married to a woman she loved and wanted to shout about it from the roof tops. Hetersexual couples do that too, especially when relatively newly wed, but we are more familiar with that and perhaps take less notice of it.

It needn't have a negative interpretation when people are open and up front about their individual differences. Inclusivity in a culture is the very thing that allows people to openly be who they are without (or less) fear of reprisals. My mum still panics at any suggestion that any family member might not be pure white Christian because she's still afraid the Gestapo will come knocking.

Perhaps you didn’t understand that it was about her (seeming) to assume I would think negatively, when in fact, I would have been supportive. How about people giving folks a chance, before being defensive? That’s not just LGBT— It’s with all sorts of scenarios. The world is hard for many people; we should all strive to be the role models we seem to want back from the world. Otherwise, it’s like expecting people who don’t know you to understand your hardships ahead of time. Kind of an unfair expectation.teddybear
