This "I don't want to treated differently", but the "hey guys, I HAVE BOOBS LOOK PHOTOS" shit may work on the older guys, (hehe, SPOO. NAT.) but bitch you old. Yo titties saggy. This is the internet. If you expect to be treated NOT liek a woman, then don't let everyone know durrrrr. Your going to be treated differently if you tell everyone.

If gay jokes are okay in your book, then you have no right acting insulted over Deadboy's. I'm from San Francisco. That shit would get you stomped on by fantastically dressed gay guys as well as the hipster girls. to even consider calling someone gay a joke tells us your either some redneck fucking her cousin or ignorant.

While DM7 might seem like a hypocrite for comparing a girl to used Tom Ford, open your fuckin eyes you white knights. This is styleforum. We're socially awkward people that only know how to compare things to clothing. It MAKES FUCKING SENSE TO THINK OF A WOMAN AS A TOM FORD. That's the only way we can see it as. When someone says she's like Tom Ford level, we think, "ohhhh she's Tom Ford level, very nice". How else would be see it as? If we compared her to another girl it is like "she's so hot she's looks like Ellen Page?" Half of us are probably wondering, what the fuck is Ellen Page? And the gay guys would actually be wondering "how is Ellen Page hot?" Tom Ford makes sense to EVERYONE here, cause this is styleforum.

She might have been joking, but gay jokes should not be jokes.

honestly, we got some fucking white knights here coming to your defense, but from what I see, your just some older woman looking for some compliments. and even more honestly, if you hadn't open your mouth about being a woman, these guys would not have come to your defense, cause they're fucking white knights.

Fuck you white knights.

330CK. Gay jokes. No. There's no loosening up about that. It'd be like saying "you fucking jew, you want some more money" or "nigger want some fried chicken". Gay jokes have hit the point where is isn't funny. Shit just does not fly.

And dex. get off her cunt. she has a husband already.

Fuck white knights.

Before we go too far down the rabbit hole: Let's just stick to clothes, please. Some dumb stuff has been said by both sides. We need another post about it like we need a pinstripe Arnold Brant orphan with a low gorge.

That was way wayyyyy too angry for no reason...

 

It's either all off limits or nothing is.  Simple.  

 

Youre saying it's okay to tell people to kill themselves, but to joke about being gay is never okay?  You're out of your fucking mind.

 

I live 2 blocks from one of the biggest (If not the biggest) gay district in Canada (Being Davie, in Vancouver) and as a result work with and know quite a few gay men and women - none of which have any problem with having gay jokes being tossed around - and I am sure they would have a lot bigger problem if someone told them to 'go throw themselves in traffic' or whatever the quote was.

 

I guess my point is this, you can't speak for everyone here, no one can.  Some people find different subject matters intolerable, and others find them totally fine.  There will be people of every race/religion/sexual preference on both sides of the fence, for every one of these arguments.  What should really matter - is the fact no one set out to actually upset someone, or to hurt anyone.  Easy.  If it got taken the wrong way, there was already and apology and a statement that it won't happen again.  

 

Coming in after the fact and ranting like a lunatic about what can and can't be joked about is just ridiculous, who are you to decide?

 

This is insane.

Question back about thrifting, are recent Tommy Hilfiger suits worth picking up if they fit?  I found a nice grey one close to my size seems OK for quality, for sure nothing special.  But I was thinking about going back for it as I could tailor it to fit me and could use a grey suit....

If you're desperate for a suit and the styling is good, the TH sounds fine. I wouldn't invest much in it, though. Hold out for better if its not an urgent need.

In that case, I shall hold off - I really have no need for it beyond rounding out my wardrobe. 

 

Thank you sir.

Lol, just kidding man.

Honest question, Wes: does anyone in Pennsylvania have an inseam longer than 31? There are so many nice items in that list that would all make great pedal pushers.

Most forums on the internet censor those words, but this one doesn't. We are all intelligent people that self-moderate pretty well. We all also have our own sets of opinions, but what we need to realize is that other people are allowed to have a different opinion.

We should not look at what was obviously a joke as a hateful message, because it wasn't directed at anyone in particular. Dex brings up an excellent point on it being okay to objectify women as used goods.

Really all I think martinigirl intended was to say some of you need to loosen up. Way to prove her prove her wrong.

Funny, whenever I see someone make a gay=bad joke, I don't think of them as adults. A joke with hate at its basis is not a joke, it's hate.

Wishing ill upon someone for making said joke, is just in bad taste too. I'm looking your way, Deadboy. The "go jump into traffic on the freeway" was very tasteless. I never asked to be treated differently. At least 330ck is treating me like a person, and I respect him very highly because of that.

In that case, welcome to the 21st century. And where were you for the last 40 years?

+1 for realz.

Applause to rayxlui as well for taking the stand.

Love seeing thrifters showing leadership in this matter, which isn't the case everywhere on SF.

Guess having our thread frequented by a lot of college kids/recent grads ain't completely bad hahahahahaha.

Sold my Ben Silver PENN Blazer Buttons already for $80

We would, but we have to keep the rise long and the inseam short since we farm boys swing so low....lol

Before everyone pats each other on the back: Both sides have said reprehensible things. In a fight where offensive language meets suggestions to walk into traffic and references to "saggy titties," nobody is deserving of applause.

Keep it classy. Get Kiton. Don't waste energy arguing on the Internet (except about clothes).

Chill. Wasn't passing judgment, or at least didn't mean to. Folks (like Frenchy) have gotten banned in similar ways before, and you'd been absent. Was just observing that that's what I thought happened, is all.
