i totally relate to everything everyone is saying here. including bubba, and pb. they have a very strong point to make. i am sensitive to the extreme about violence or emotionally violent attitudes toward women and children for personal reasons. it's not a distant cause i decided to sympathize with. speaking for myself, there were no covert or overt expressions of hatred toward women, but to ignoramii who set themselves up as the next generation of truth dispensers, when they are so clearly not endowed, it has nothing to do with gender. a lot of pleasurable outrage though.
now, from my first post i felt the distinct pleasure of being a cutting, mean asshole, and letting some of the negative, harsh, evil shit i feel inside out for a bit. but not a bit of my bile was directed toward her femaleness, or any sort of unconscious hatred i have toward women. i don't have any. and it's a bit obnoxious to accuse me of that, and likely a few others participating.
but i did choose to be evil and dogpile this almost despicable fallen person, and for all logical purposes, as has been abundantly stated, it's near impossible to sympathize with this writer, so let's have a go at her, nobody will mind!
to make matters worse, i only really felt bad when cluz announced that he invited her to read the thread. so that could mean i'm actually an asshole if i can get away with it, and i'm only nice coz i've learned to be. so what does that say about everyone else.
so what i'm thinking now, is that the braying pack, of which i enthusiastically participate in, and the righteous ones, who we won't know are that good or that bad until put to the test, and the object of our attention, someone who really doesn't deserve the attention so shame on us, are all a bunch of assholes.
so it's back to square one, unless bubba can take it further.
i do appreciate the stance you take bubba, and as you learn to deliver it more effectively, well, that's the kind of change i'd like to see in people. it shouldn't mean we have to suffer idiots and hand out daisies. but it doesn't mean we should be a bunch of low cunts.
yes i'm high. shaddup.
Because she deserved them. Probably even wants them. Do you NOT think she's showing her boss this thread right now as part of her 3 month performance review to prove that she's being read/making an impact/reaching an audience?Bubba, was not saying that her writing is perfect. He was saying that all of you are ripping into her not only for her writing, but saying rude things about her too.
There are at least six posters on here who are professional, published writers. One even ran his own provincial newspaper in his home country. Did you think a forum of well-travelled English teachers would not be writers?I'd love to see all of you get something published and then put it on here for us to criticize.
Why? She's putting it out there to be read. You and Bubba both need to grow a pair.Since you are so critical of her, why not go and put it on her fb or send her a pm.
If it was prettier would it be okay with you?You guys act like you are oh, so much better. She has a damn good point about things. Yes, MEN buy prostitutes in Thailand, and it ain't pretty.
The girls sell themselves. Go complain to them if it bothers you.
No? Why not?
It existed thousands of years ago. The Bible mentions Christ encouraging compassion towards prostitutes. You honestly think he was saying they were wrong for earning a living?And, yes there are massage parlours and such. So get over yourselves, because you know it well enough that it exists.
No hate here, just clarity of thought.My earlier comments were also a bit critical of her, and I am NOT against Thai woman and western men. I have many friends that are that way. So, just try and rip into my comments, you haters!
There are few problems in life that cannot be solved with toast.
One of them, however, is opening a can of corned beef with that stupid key. This cannot easily be done at the best of times, and toast is of surprisingly little use in resolving the issue.
no i honestly don't believe she is making an impact on anyone at all apart from here. come on the queues aren't that empty.
she's not going to get more work out of this. plenty more amusing idiots out there doing twice the job. she's not amusing!
From the perspective of customer satisfaction, I'd say the piece is probably pretty successful. From any other less cynical perspective, it's shit and Sarah's an idiot.
budda, you are so obviously trolling.
Yes, I've read your writing.
Do you know what's a real scream, PB? I doubt anyone but you cares what drivel you have for us today, yesterday, tomorrow.You know I've tried to stay out of this, but I cannot.
Nice writing and good thinking 3leggs. You're a sensitive person, that's good, high or not.
jonny, you are one of the most envious people I've ever seen online. It's very sad.
