    It irked me a great deal.. I edited my original response.. I mean, its one thing to f*ck around with each other with sarcasm and humor, but I think telling somebody that they are not of the faith they were raised in simply because they don't take every aspect of that faith literally is a little offensive to say the least..
    Technically, he has a point, though he is wrong in his conclusion. I guess that I'll go address it in that thread. I've been getting a lot of PMs from members saying that who have been offended by something I'd consider fairly innocuous. On one hand, I have no tolerance for racist, mysogynistic, and other truly disgusting statements. On the other hand, some of you guys have got to get slightly thicker skin. Fok. Edited - hated the phrasing in the original post. Please see below for unedited version.

    I don't think we should discriminate on the basis of skin thickness on this forum.

    Fair enough, but I don't offend very easily, and did not send a PM.. I can go back and respond as I wanted to originally I guess.. [​IMG]

    You are forgetting, I cannot be religious as I do not ascribe to 100% of the dogma of the church I was raised in.. [​IMG]

    There was probably a good reason for it.

    I don't think we should discriminate on the basis of skin thickness on this forum.

    I guess I'm guilty of being a little thin-skinned. I reported a post where a member said he liked to masturbate to a particularly brutal rape scene in a movie, and had a history of similar posts about rape.

    I'm 100% for free speech but that, especially to a female forum member, is about as progressive as saying "we like to have picnics under lynching trees" or something equally as disgusting.

    My comment was facetious. I think I would share your reaction, and in fact have felt similarly at quite a number of creepy posts and those who appear to welcome them. Frankly, I'm surprised any real women (as opposed to creepy men pretending to be their fantasy women) can actually read this forum.

    It's not too bad, I stick to DT's though.
