You clearly missed the point. No shit, they're there because they're popular. I said it was funny because it was like a stereotype coming true. Fully aware that it's not actually that. I'm amazed I have to explain this.


Back on topic. "You can't hug with nuclear arms." and stuff like that.

Ri-cock-ulous. Pretty sick of that.

Any variation of Chuck Norris joke. It's had it's time. Let it die.

Pretty much everything on this thread so far really annoys me.
And now to something my boyfriend used to say all the time:
Kaythanksby or however you're supposed to spell it.
He said it all the damn time and then when I said it once he flipped out and accused me of stealing his line. Lets just say that I kind of blew up on him and now he doesn't say it anymore.

And to touch on the blonde subject a bit...it really makes me mad when someone tells me that I'm acting so blonde and just so you all know I'm actually really smart. It really bothers me because I actually am blonde and I only dyed my hair so that I could get out of that steryotype....oh well.

NOOB
Yes I am new, I have never played this game before, so please don't make me feel bad for it. (I don't like playing most online games because of this. I mean I randomly decide to make a character on my boyfriend's WoW account and within the first five minutes someone is calling me a NOOB and saying that I suck and that I'm a pussy and I need to stop playing the game....wow...and now everytime I go to play that game I feel really bad and like I shouldn't play.)

Technically noob and newb aren't the same thing'

Newb: Newbie; someone new to the game/series/etc.

Noob: Someone who just doesn't seem to learn, essentially someone who acts like a newb when they should know better.

What gets me, though, is when people compare hair color jokes to events of ACTUAL RACISM like they're similar.

I'm like. "Wuuuuut..."

Well in this country there have actually been some pretty bad cases of abuse suffered by gingers. I wont say its a bad as racism, and clearly theres no history of oppression for gingers but it can go beyond simple teasing and joking to vandalism or violence. Admitedly these cases are very rare.

I heard that from a friend. Why are gingers ridiculed in your country? It's strange that anyone is ridiculed based on looks, gender and or ethnicity, isn't it?

Technically there is an argument that it's a characteristic of people of Celtic descent and that it represents a deep seated prejudice against native Britons from later Anglo Saxon and Norman colonists/invaders.

Then again most people who make it tend to be members of the SNP and by now all three groups are more or less mixed except for a few places, so....

I'm speaking specifically of comparing blonde jokes to black jokes here in America.
I've heard this happen a few times. Like, "Hey, black person talking about how you've just been the brunt of a racially-motivated beating! I TOTALLY know what you're talking about when it comes to discrimination! I'm blonde! People tell jokes about me all the time!"

UM. WHAT. No.

I don't know why gingers get such schtick (I think say this too much, I'm not jewish enough) in this country. I doubt its due to any sort of deep seated prejudice against people of celtic origin. It's proably just because they look different/funny in the minds of these juvenile people who have never mentally aged beyond highschool.

@ Flora88 - Oh well that's ridiculous, unless blonde people have been the victim of 100s of years of opression and segregation, actually blonde people seem to have been more famously on the other side of that.
