Next issue on the PC agenda!

After the cartoon issue, seems like people have found something else to whinge about


www.sky.com...

To be honest i just thing this is petty nitpicking now, do religous groups have a special squad who go around looking for the slightest thing to moan about? We could ALL do it about ALL religeons......chill out for G*** sake! (Note i did'nt upset the Christians there by saying God!)

Hello Friends:

This thing with the muslims is geting out of hand!,Now we have to
rename or be careful with what we publish. Come on!! there is a
thing called freedom of exprecion!!
I don't want to offend any one but If we keep gong like this what
are we going to do. Imagin this I can't were my hair blue because I
may offend some one, I can use this ring because I may ofend some one
I can''t wright a erotic poem because I may offend some one!!!

No!!! If you don't like some cartoons don't look at it,if you don't like the
way I'm dressed stay away from me, If you don't like a book don't buy
it. If you don't like sertain merchandise don't buy It. Leve alone the other people that may enjoy other stuff we need to be more tolerant!!!

I saw this the other day and its just getting ridiculous now. I can't wait for UKTV Gold to show 'Carry On Up The Kyber' again (I think its that one), where they keep on saying 'Mustaffa Peeeeeeee! Mustaffa Peeeeeeee!' and other things like that. See what the fundies have to say about that. Although its probably been banned from tv by now

Wow, I didn't realize that Muslim men were so sensitive as to feel hurt and anguish over the name of an inflateable doll. Perhaps a list of things offensive could be published then we all double check the list daily and all be politically correct of course, we wouldn't get much done cause we wouldn't want to offend anyone. Please people lets worry about more important things and practice a little tolerance.

How in gods name were they to know the name "Mustapha" was going to offend anyone?

Why don't they just get it over with and compile a list of offensive acts and words?

Mind you, all it will list is "Western society" and "Western culture".

This has made my day, I think I will share this with my next class this morning. What a bunch of babies. You want some cheese with that whine? I say keep the name, they obviously cant make a joke and I'm tired of hearing about how something in western life has to be changed because these people dont like it, no, no more changing anything. You dont like it, leave.

You guys simply do not understand the Islam relgion. Muslims treat their religious belief even on a more significant level than their lives, just because most Westerners don't give a crap about what other people say about Jesus or God anymore, doesn't mean the Muslims don't.

Naming a doll with a religious name is one thing, but naming it on a scatological adult toy, especially to such an highly strict and disiplined religion where gambling and even alchohol are prohibited, you are sure to cause major offense to an extensive level.

I tell you, it's getting so that a Muslim can't even go into a porn shop without getting offended. Oh these trying times.

This is the kind of appeasement bull# that has to stop. It makes the situation worse by making the west appear weak of heart and mind. Dont talk about being sensitive to foreigners needs, theres only so far I am willing to go not to offend someone. In MY country the ideals and sensibilities of Americans are the only ones I really care about. Even here everyone offends way too easily. I tried the whole appeasement respect foreigners beliefs, but when they try and dictate our free speech, and change our ways of life the buck stops there. The name obviously had no religious intent in the first place but was rather a play-on-words. If they dont like it, they dont have to see it. Its simple.

I heard that in some parts London they were calling Christmas The Winter Festival, so as not too offend muslims. I Don't think it was the muslims who called for this biyt some stupid PC group.

Do you have to blow it up, or does it blow itself up?

Face it, the Muslims and Middle Eastern communities have been discriminated in North America and Europe ever since the 911 caused by the radical groups, while the majority are the ordinary peaceful folks having nothing to do with the American so-called "terrorist activities". Do you geniunely believed the sex doll was named innocently by random chance picked in a book? Funny i don't ever see anything like that named after a Budhist god, Shinto goddesss, or whatever other religious figures there are.

The Muslims were mocked, being picked on and mistreated in foreign lands misconcepted as dealings with Middle Eastern terrorists, they have no alternative but to tolerant, but by offending their religion it is going over the line and they had to do something.

This rings true...and its a shame that many in the West seem to feel that others MUST conform to this secular attitude that we have outwardly adopted.

This gives me a brilliant idea, I've always wondered what it could have been like to "have my way" with Jesus, Buddha or Krishna, since I'm already sinning with just the thought, I might as well make and market my own inflatable dolls, of course they would be astronomically porportioned, they're named afters gods and prophets....I can see the $$$ coming in now, women or men who buy this stuff would love it.. Have Sex with Moses (staff included) or try Krishna (4 armed version costs extra).

no followers of those religions will ever visit my sex shop, so how will they know. brilliant.

So, you are saying that if there was an inflatable sex doll, named "Jesus", there would be no Christian protest? Heck, Christians protest at US soldiers funerals!

Let's realy take a look at the name that was used that is causing so much trouble. The name of the doll is Mustafa Shag does anyone here remember the Austin Powers movies? Must not or everyone would have picked up on what the name stands for. To Translate for those of you who may not be familiar with the movies:
Mustafa Shag = Must have a Shag (Sex). I am very certain that the manufacturer as well as the store's owner meant the above translation. The name Mustafa is an unfortunate (as well as not a well known alias of Muhhamed).

Let's get real people!
edited for spelling
