Double post
post #22592 of 54020

It isn't so much Styleforum in particular.

 

I think the firm doesn't like the idea of what I say on the Internet being associated with the firm's name.

 

Except, doesn't this problem happen to people with Facebook accounts? You guys post pictures of yourselves getting plastered on the weekend, everyone knows you work for a management consulting firm, bam, the reputation of the firm is in jeopardy.

Me thinks they don't really care. You think upper management don't get shitfaced themselves? They get shitfaced with clients all the time. Just another thing they can use as an excuse to try terminate your employment when shit goes down.

Get shitfaced, and poast on forvms. Stick it to the man!




And Gilly was 10x more entertaining to watch than Punter ever was.

In any case, neither your presence on this Internet forum nor their penchant for pointy loafers and horrid suiting are sufficient determinants of whether one is, in fact, "gay".

Rob I just checked my invoice from Fedex and you are right, 10 % on shirts. I honestly didn't take much notice because the shipment was pretty small and so the duty amount was too. I'm too used to the 5% on ties. You learn something everyday.

I see gay as a term with duplicitous meaning. 

 

On the one hand it refers to those who are attracted to the same sex. 

On the other it refers to things that are weak, effeminate or frustrating - eg Kia Rios, skinny jeans, Taylor Swift...

Terms of derogatory origin can take on neutral or even positive connotations - nigger for example, or my personal favourite, cunt.

I'd like to see your friends convince me that someone referring to the film Titanic as 'gay' is anything but.

as long as i don't do anything illegal (which is completely against the 'spirit' of the firm), the boss encourages jollifications. that includes getting plastered, womanising etc. (but no drugs). not that i do any plastering. or womanising. or drugs. Gosh i'm boring.

Yeah I adds up. Say your shirt is 100 cif. 10% is 110 then gst is 10% on that ie 121.. So its about 21% of tax

MMmmm...there is an obvious rejoinder (or two) to this but I think I will leave it alone.

If I can have a bit of a letter to-the-editor moment, I will say this modern usage of 'gay' by the youf of today annoys the crap out of me. I have this running battle with the young Selvaggi. "Gay' = lame, Daddy-o, they tell me (cue major eye-rolling), not "actually gay".

Yes, I say, have you thought about the origin of the term and how any of our friends who are, you know, like, "actually gay' might feel about this if they heard you saying this. But the kicker is when I say, what about your friends who are gay - don't you think it a bit insensitive (at the very least) to constantly label everything bad and daggy in the world as gay? (More eye-rolling). "not applicable" they say. Of course, they are wrong, they just don't know it yet.

So, Oli, I don't mean to put you down, I assume you are youngish and I will freely admit to being out of touch. I also assume, for benefit of the doubt, that like my daughters you don't actually dislike gay people and feel the need to put them down. But, when you use gay a lot in your posts I picture you as a teenage girl. We might also have members here who are "actually gay" and I am sure they must just grit their teeth when they hear or see the word gay used in this way. Just sayin.
post #22605 of 54020

Playing devil's advocate here, I'd argue that homosexuals grabbed that word for themselves and this might have annoyed anyone who was using it otherwise.

 

Cases in point:

  • The Gay Divorcee  wasn't about homosexuality and
  • When you met The Flinstones, you'd have a gay old time - this wasn't what you think Fred and Barney got up to when Wilma and Betty were out
  • The Golden Gaytime is also for breeders ...
