    Hmmm...let's see...Say I am a lawyer and then am elected judge.

    When I am on the bench conversting with lawyers about my exploits before becoming a judge, would it be appropriate for them not to address me as "Your honor," as we'd be discussing events which previously occurred?

    I think not: same with this pronoun business: "You takes em as you finds em NOW."
    What, Me Worry?

    I'm not talking about discussing the present. I'm talking about whether it would be appropriate to describe events in the past with pronouns that don't match the actual event. For example, if you were a toddler, and someone refers to Judge V in a story about the toddler, it's understood you were NOT Judge V at the time of the story. But a pronoun could be crucial to the story.

    Taking a page from sports controversies, if a 30-year-old who just transitioned from she to he had won the mile at the state meet in high school, and is referred to as a he regarding having won the event, the assumptions made about the time and competition would be completely different from the time and competition if the person is referred to as she in the story. You are misreporting reality to refer to a person as gender A in a story where they were a Gender B at the time of the story.

    I still think you need to use the currently appropriate pronoun.

    You could say "Back before he transitioned, he won the girl's mile..."

    You're a FAG.

    Sure, I could, but I'm not concerned with my reportage to myself. I'm concerned about understanding reality, which relies on the reportage of others. If you backfit pronouns, you are obfuscating reality, and pretty severely.

    There's no way to wallpaper over the problems in reporting. Here's some squirrely examples that stringent wokism would crucify me for, but I think they are valid.

    If you have a person of Gender A talking about a rape that occurred when they were Gender B, if they don't assign the gender-at-the-time-of-rape to the narrative, the person trying to understand the narrative has a problem, because the rape of Gender A is likely very different from the rape of Gender B. If nothing else, a man being raped is statistically rarer by about a 10 to 1 margin the last I checked.

    Claims of workplace biases, for example, need a gender-at-the-time attached to contextualize the story properly. Backfitting a present gender and plugging it into historical narratives is obfuscation.

    Older people tend to resist change and grow more set in their ways. And this is what we are really talking about here, growing and changing with the times. Older people, in general just do not do that well. I give credit to MrV and redietz for being more able to adapt and change. AND I apologize if either is offended by my lumping you in with the older generation.

    I am younger than most here, by a generation (20-30 years for most). And I am gay so I have been a target both in real life and on forums of those that don't deal with accept change well. I also try very hard to be a "live and let live" type of person, as long as what others are doing isn't hurting anyone else.

    All that said, I am not very comfortable and frankly have never understood the whole transgender thing. Bruce Jenner among others? I just don't get it. I really just can't grasp this "I was born into the wrong body" stuff. It is as foreign as foreign can be to me. I believe in God and don't believe God makes those kind of mistakes.

    When I came out, 25 years ago in my mid teens, it was the LGB (lesbian, gay and bisexual) community, and frankly I question whether bisexual is a real thing. Now there are so many letters we almost need a second alphabet.

    I don't wish anybody any harm, and don't mean to disrespect anyone....I just don't get it.

    There's nothing inherently good about conforming to the latest fads. Many newly popular ideas are stupid and should be opposed.

    It's hilarious to me how people that have never been old think they know a lot about it. They make statements about old people as if they are true facts but in reality is just ignorant blather. I know because I used to be one of those idiots making all those false assumptions about old people. I actually believed that bullshit.

    But now, just a few months away from my 70th birthday, I think back and say, damn my beliefs about old people were pretty stupid.

    Terms like "old man" or "old woman" when used in criticizing others are slurs. And terms like "old white man" are racial slurs. People that use those terms are bigots.

    I think they really do exist. I think a good example is scammer Christopher Mitchell. No doubt he likes Dick. Some tease him with the gay stuff, only because he claims to be straight.

    One of the regular posters In that thread found a video of Chrissy saying he received a BJ from a trucker to get a ride from Texas to Calif. The words come directly out of his mouth. Some would say this doesn’t make him bi or gay. The ride had a value of a couple hundred bucks. Most straight men wouldn’t do what he did if they weren’t in fact bisexual or gay. Not to mention all the Gay porn he did. He is married to a woman and they have a child.

    Doing sexual favors for money with the same sex doesn't mean Gay or Bisexual. It means desperate for money. I read of a Straight man who had gay sex for drug money when he was a drug addict. He was ashamed that he had Gay sex when he was straight for drug money.

    Take comfort in the fact that no one is actually backing up his wishes to have you permanantly banned.

    Shackleford surprises me at times. For such a smart man, he does some dumb shit. His thread about “service fees”. He was charged 5% service fee. He thought it actually went to the waitress lol, so he deducted 5% from her tip. Instead of tipling 17% he tipped 12%.

    Many of these newly implemented fees since the pandemic are for increased food cost as well as restaurants passing on the credit card fees. 10 years ago, a good percentage still paid cash at restaurants. Now it’s almost 100% card.

    Skimming through Gambling Forums WoV is Dead and Freddy posted up this gem lol.

    There goes AxelWolf again...using the word "retard" while Woke Weak Wizard looks the other way.
    Retard is considered hate speech as well as a major slur. You know what's really funny? Little Axel "Captain Morgan" Wolf calling someone else a retard.
    Yes, that's his go to word and he has used it thousands of times over the years on WoV.
    You know what's really retarded... Little Axel going on forums posting that he has a 7 inch pecker.
    By the way...I just heard that there are a couple of abandoned TITOs at Circus Circus. Chop chop Mr. AP.


    Great and Accurate Post Freddy lol,lol,lol, ROFL and LULZ!!
    Chop, Chop lol I love it.

    EDIT: I went back and read some more lol. They are tearing up good old AssholeWolf and pretty accurate for the most part. I seen AWs wife a couple times and once with him at the Plaza and LVAC. I played the Full Pay 50 cent Jokers next to her a couple of times. They were not married at that time. Good looking girl if you like that type. Not the marrying type in my opinion but to each their own. Ozzy is wrong about the wolf though. He isn't set for life and could be on the skids at any moment but that goes for just about anyone. Life has always been about here today and gone tomorrow, no matter who you are.
