> Any one who still uses the work Gook makes me boiling mad.
LOL I'm not Asian but I am not a native English-speaker either and I thought that "gook" was a typo for "good". LOL I have now learnt a new word!
(I still maintain that "good shit" would have been funny!)
> I am surprised at how someone can be an Anime fan and still be so insensitive towards this.
Well, mostly because I did not know the term. ^___^
> Maybe you can help change the attitude of your mal-adjusted family members.
LOL I would not dream of it! I love them the way they are!
He'll make fun of anime in one breath and himself in the next. There is such a thing as making fun of stereotypes, you know. And he has the right to think anime is stupid. I think US football is stupid and will poke fun at the Superbowl mercilessly.
Most people like to joke that no one makes movies as badly as the French. I don't get offended. ^___^ I mean, if the pun is made in good humour and not meant to be nasty, I see no problem with it.
Seriously if I got offended at every bad-French-movie, Maginot-line, smelly-unwashed-French and hairy-armit joke I heard I'd spend my life in a bad mood!
