aaaaabsolutely not.
so now we're required to take the whole population and its problems into account when making personal decisions? nah.
i highly doubt he's falling back on the fine print. most obviously, he's just being a fellow nerd. what if he had "NGAGE"? does that mean he's promoting hetero only marriage?... being insensitive to the rights of gays? or "ABORT"? yeah, cuz then he's probably a baby hater.
and if you choose to tiptoe around the boohoos of others, then on your own repressed soul be it.
"not i!", said the duck.

Well, ya got me on the pasty. But the irreverence in your reply really doesn't look good on you, especially if you're attuned to minority issues. . Like, I'm not sure your black partner would agree that cultures are not worth defending.

Nah.

Actually she agrees with me, we dont go around thinking oh man let me virtue signal.

Sometimes you have to see the forest for the trees.

Nothing lasts forever.

I mean you realize the topic is people upset over a #ing STAR TREK Novelty License plate.

We don't need that many pansies here, we already hit our quota.

By the looks of things, the plate owner is a Trekker, but I'd say it's pretty likely that he knew he was pushing other buttons as well. And that would make him an arse.

Did you see the man's name?

Nick Troller.


Now, more seriously, I think that both sides are right: the licence plate owner because it was a reference to a specific situation, the people that complained because not everyone is a Star Trek fan (I'm not) and when someone chooses a personalized licence plate they should remember that they are showing it in public, so they should think about other people and not just about themselves.

Like most of the world does. NOT GAF and go on about our days.

Manitoba is pretty well known for being the most racist region of Canada in its treatment of our Indigenous people. That is not lost on the people living there, so this guy would have a good idea as to which buttons he was pushing. It's pretty much a free speak issue, IMHO. If he was playing the game with a bumper sticker, well, that's his call (and his windshield), but seeing as it's government property...tough noogies.
And as in all things, either you're part of the problem, or part of the solution.

Cool if I am part of the problem just stay out of my way.


Thats my reasoning if I am to be part of the problem.

Racist Canadians? I thought that's only a Merican phenomenon.


IMO if you want to be offended you can look around and find anything to offend you.

Really ?

So you're in favour of censorship then ?

What about clothes ? Are they fair game too, what happens if I think your clothing offends me, you agree you should be banned from wearing it in public and you should think about other people ?

Utter stupidity

I suppose all other people that did not complained followed that rule, but when you make a public statement you should expect all kinds of answers.

No, I'm in favour of people thinking that they are not the only people in the world and other people may think in a different way.

I didn't say that the licence plate should be banned, did I? I said that both points of view are right.

If you think like this then yes, you are in favour of censorship

Being offended by something is a choice, not a right

Hell we'd all be walking round in monotone colours and not saying a word if everybody was concerned about offending everybody else

No, I'm in favour of people remembering that if they want to live in a group they should remember about other people too.

Exactly, in the same way your reaction to the revoking of the licence plate was a choice.

There are many ways to be civil, which include not killing each other, eating each other or attacking each other.

It does not and should not extended to freedom of speech or expression

Don't like to hear what someone says ? Walk away
Don't like what somebody has on their car/house/clothing ? Don't look at it

It's really quite simple to avoid things

Now if they chase after you and force it in your face, then yeah, I'll concede that you should have rights to not have it forced upon you, but that's something else entirely different than simply freedom of speech or expression and is more harassment and absolutely nothing to do with the message

This guy though he had a plate on his car he wasn't forcing people to look at it, so why do you agree with those who are offended ? When all they have to do is simply not look at it

You're defending people who make issues where there shouldn't be issues at all and to be honest their type of behaviour borders on Nazi censorship

take the PC, socially sensitive, SJW ideology put into practice and legislated to its logical conclusion and you will have a completely bland society with nothing interesting to offer anyone.

I heard people can catch on fire if they read offensive words. I'm glad the Canadian government is protecting the good people of Manitoba.

A licence plate identifies the car, if anyone wants to identify the car they are forced to read the licence plate.

I'm defending both sides, but it looks like you haven't noticed it yet.

It's actually a provincial government call on provincial government property. But it's easy to be glib when you don't have all the facts in.
