And I'm not giving it up if no one wants to give up "cupcake", too. But I'm not giving that one up, either. More of a zing when using cupcake in a mocking sense, sort of the harsher of the two


What's the purpose of that? To engage in an adult debate, learn, share or childish BS?

It SEEMS to me that you might be just TIRED of arguing about it.

I know when I argue with my partner and it never seems to end, I want to just stop the entire thing because neither one of us will win.

An untenable situation is no grounds to cease and desist. Simply because a person cannot find a superior argument does not give that person the right to demand the discussion stop...

It's certainly not denying ignorance.

I think I prefer "snowflake" to rotten commie, socialist, homo scum.



Not me. 😕
Trying to embrace the north, never thought I'd be the spirit of something turned into an insult. 🌬☃❄️👻

Maybe some things are deserved of the term snowflake after all.

First the came for the Snowflakes, but I was not one. . .

Then they came for the Booger-heads, but I was not one. . . .

Then they came for the Retards, but I was not one. . . . . .

Then they came for me and I had no words to describe them.

And then they came for my synthesizer, and I told them they could take it from my cold, dead hands:



I annoy the hell out of everyone in my house.


*bloop, bleep, bleeep, whine, whirrrrrr*

Total 100% analog goodness. "Old School" style.

The anti-PC people are just as bad as the PC people.

What I do not understand is how they do not see it themselves.

Both sides are the same, they are like the inverse of one another.

Both want only want what they believe to be allowed.

It's all the same.

When we get to a point where people determine the words others use to describe them, then free expression is shot to hell.

Word. That's cool. I've looked at microbrutes and minikorgs.

The only true analog synth I have is a poly 800. Cool, but limited.

Why should I care if people are offended?

Let people be offended.

What I have a problem with is people regurgitating buzzwords and terms that are pushed by propagandists.

It's really not that hard to figure out.

An ass is never dumb, as they have been known to vocalize quite loudly.

"With great power there comes great responsibility." Few seem to be responsible these days.

Yes, when one has nothing else to offer except mockery, name calling, or ridicule, one's argument is lost.
