    Anyone who starts a thread about how all gay guys are fucked up (one way and another) or all Asians are this or that or asks what's wrong with black guys -- or wtf ever -- need to OWN THEIR SHIT.

    Anything you THINK is true IS YOUR THOUGHT. It isn't what IS true, it is a statement about YOU that you think it or feel it to be true.

    Own it. Don't make it about the other guy, whoever he is. OWN IT. Say, "I think _______" or "I feel ___________" and fill in the blank. That way everyone including your own sorry ass is clear you're talking about yourself when you make generalization about anyone else.

    Anyone got some hot sauce?

    I prefer my shit to be a little spicy. Although I could easily achieve the same result after eating Taco Bell.

    Should Asian's own their shit, or should it be owned by White?

    Isn't it easier for us all to understand that "I think" "I feel" and "I believe" to be implied before every statement? I mean, if someone says "Gays are shallow", I don't take it as the word of God and write it down so I never forget it. I think "a person thinks gays are shallow. that's nice"

    Anything you THINK is true IS YOUR THOUGHT. It isn't what IS true, it is a statement about YOU that you think it or feel it to be true.

    Own it. Don't make it about the other guy, whoever he is. OWN IT. Say, "I think _______" or "I feel ___________" and fill in the blank. That way everyone including your own sorry ass is clear you're talking about yourself when you make generalization about anyone else.



    I wouldn't say that was true. And note that while I haven't made any topics that included such generalisations, you have.

    If you are trying to say that the generalisations being expressed are drawn from an OP's own personal experiences and their own life, then obviously. Its implicit. It doesnt need to be said.

    where?

    no. what i'm saying is, such people *believe* their own bull shit. any generalization that concludes ALL members of a demographic are alike in some respect (especially negative) is bull shit. it may be sexist, racist, ageist, homophobic or internalized homophobic, w/e... it is BS.

    fail. the qualifier is SOME. you may not agree but it is not an overgeneralization that includes ALL members of the set "people on this forum".

    yourname2000 said100% agree: these topics are borne of anecdotal observation and not a scientific survey. But invariably the OP ends up positioning some monstrous slur as a global aeon of TRUTH that he just discovered with only 3-5 recent examples.

    Ermagawd: the last 5 black guys I saw were on a basketball court...
    ...ALL BLACK MEN PLAY BASKETBALL.

    Ermagawd: the last 5 gay guys I saw were at the bar last night....
    ....ALL GAY MEN WERE AT THE BAR LAST NIGHT.

    Morons. And the fact that they usually are using this new found "truth" to wallow in some bullshit misery they've invented for themselves proves that, too.

    Talk about using white gloves to clean up a fight/argument without a bloody mess! love your answer! although I understood the OP's frustration even if he generalized and broke his own rules!!

    My solution is quite simple! this website has enough gigabytes storage space to accommodate every opinion under the sun! for me personally if I have nothing nice to say I rather say nothing at all, but then again it is better and even healthier to express what you feel than to hold it in! My sincerest apologies if what I said hurt someone's feelings.

    A GROUP HUG!!
