  • Are offended people just plain idiots???

    More PC idiots run amok – here are some idiot tidbits to sit and just shake you head at!!


    Jay Nordlinger of the National Review reports that the NCAA's Big Ten Conference and other college sports associations have stopped using the term "unsportsmanlike" to refer to rowdy behavior on the field.
    Instead, the term "unsportslike" is being used. The intent is to remove the "man" part of the phrase so as not to offend female athletes.

    An Arizona high school teacher who attempted to maintain order in his classroom by keeping out a disruptive student was accused of being a racist and a bigot for his actions, reports the Arizona Daily Star.
    Math teacher Jim Bloodsworth, a retired Air Force master sergeant, was forced to seek a restraining order against a student because, after the student assaulted a classmate, punched a hole in a window and threatened to kill the teacher, the school failed to do anything.
    For seeking the restraining order, Bloodsworth was accused of mounting an "extremely bigoted, zealot, racist-attitude attack" by principal Steve Wilson, who likened the situation to "Mississippi in '54, only without the rope."

    An animal rights group is complaining that a casino game in which people play tic-tac-toe against a chicken is cruel and demeaning to the chickens, reports the Evansville Courier & Press.
    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said it had received numerous calls about the "Chicken Challenge" game being played at Aztar casinos in Evansville, Ind., Atlantic City, N.J., and Las Vegas.
    "Some callers are concerned about the poor quality of life for the chickens kept in the tiny boxes, others are irritated about the message of disrespect conveyed by the game, and still others are outraged by both," said PETA's Amy Rhodes.
    Casino Aztar spokeswoman Pam Martin said the chickens were kept in a temperature-controlled, smoke-free environment where they are regularly cared for and fed. "I think it's a considerate environment for any animal," said Martin. "It's a much better life than some chickens are subjected to."

      We used to be a male dominated society where women had no place in the workplace except as a secretary.

      We are no longer a male dominated society -- women are taking on traditional male roles, both in the working environment, and in sports. Should things not change with the times to reflect changing realities in work and play?

        Crazy has anyone told you that you can be a real PITA??????

        I think that a lot of these folks just plain don't have enough to do. They need to find a life!

        As for the school administrator, what do you expect from a candy ***, politicking, *** kissing jerk who DOES NOT HAVE TO DEAL WITH THAT KID HIMSELF?

        Wonder what he would do if he DID have to deal with that kid.

          Don, if you believe strongly enough in something, wouldn't you work to get it changed?

          BTW: I'm speaking only of the first paragraph.

            AAARRRRGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!! Must...kill...PC...activists...

            Are female atheletes not...'human'? What the hell is 'sportslike'? Oh wait, human is demeaning to women because it has 'man' in it. I forgot.

            Tell the principal I'll bring the rope... for him that is. I don't understand administrators. HOW CAN THEY BE SO BLIND??? Oh it's not the student who want's to kill the teacher, it's the teacher who is trying to do his job and teach those who want to learn.

            And PETA is just stupid anyway. I have nothing else to say about them.

                crazy,

                I think what P-O's most us off is that people with nothing better to do get upset over the stupidest ****.

                Some of the biggest whiners are college students. "Know it alls" with a cause of the week being supported by Mommy and Daddy.

                People out in the 'real world' don't even think of this PC nonsense. They're too busy with more important things like busting their asses at work, raising kids, paying the mortgage/rent, taxes and groceries.. Not to mention concerns about the economy, terrorism, etc.

                In life, there is no right or law which ensures your feelings will never get hurt. They should really get a life and grow up.

                  That sounds all good and what not, but people tend to get upset and worked up when people "with nothing better to do" actually do change a law. Witness the whole "under God" thing. The same ones screaming about how people should "get a life" and not get carried away with changing stuff are the same ones getting carried away with changing stuff!

                  Certainly Michael Newdow doesn't fit in this category?

                    No, Mr Newdow is worse.

                    Putting the pledge issue aside for a sec.........

                    This attention starved athiest is also bothered by four words on a friggin' dollar bill.

                    His feelings were hurt so it's the government's fault. What a puss!!!!

                    I think it's a no brainer his name will pop up again somewhere down the road with a new "I'm offended" Federal lawsuit.

                      Here's more BS where people are just whiners:

                      - Groups like the Parents Television Council who are not smart enough or too lazy to understand how to use a remote control. Instead they want to force their viewing habits on everyone else.

                      - Religous groups who try to force their extreme views on everyone else. Example in the town of Rexburg here in Idaho which is about 90% mormon church goers regularly petition businesses not to be open or if they are open sell alcohol on Sundays. There are no bars in Rexburg at all because the city wont grant liquor licenses to anyone and there is one beer only bar in the county.

                      - Any group which wants to protest a school mascot name. Go Fighting Whities!!!!!

                        i'd like to get one of those t-shirts...they are hilarious!!

                        how about the fact that Speedy Gonzales cartoons were a no-no on the cartoon network the last few years for "being offensive to hispanics"....the really stupid thing is the fact that it was still being shown on the "spanish" cartoon network with no problem.

                        so what happens? people start bugging the cartoon network to bring back speedy, with a LARGE numbers of calls and e-mails coming from hispanics who wanted it back on as well!! so now he is back on...go figure.

                              I think they are idiots, but then again without stupid people the rest of us wouldn't have anyone to laugh at.

                              The other night, I was blocking a street while the fire department worked on a house fire. I'm sitting in my car, writing a report, and this resident from the block walks up.

                              "What's going on?"
                              "House down there is burning up."
                              "So, it's on fire?"
                              "Ummm, yeah, I guess you can say that."

                              Never mind you could see the flames from a half mile away...
