It's funny..but you seem to be the only person in this group who can
select such a topic to attract attention...it worked...here I am...how
much attention do you really need..?? If you're interested...I'm all
Geee...you must be a lonely person sitting there with your WebTV. Maybe
you probably have a pc and all the trappings but getting online can be a
pain through a pc if you don't have all the odds and end it takes to get
online...so you resort to WebTV...I guess it's not a bad choice because
it does allow those who aren't computer literate to get online and join
the fun...but it also allows those who'd probably never get online
because they don't have a pc and really don't want a pc. But this
"Instant Access" does allow those who aren't say, "Internet/Usenet" savvy
to sit down and speak their minds...a nice thing wouldn't you say MS?
Perhaps...but some WebTV users may feel that this instant access also gives
you instant anonymity therefore anything they say, as a rule, do not
have to claim responsibilty for their posts/writing. And also anything
that is directed back at them they can either ignore or flame back at the
responding party without any true retribution..
I also noticed MS that you have posted quite a few original posts. I know you
like to start a conversation...but you are going about it the wrong way.
You don't go into a newgroup of that is say, *alt.12step.rape.recovery*
and make a post with the subject: RAPISTS SUCK..WHAT DO YOU THINK? ..and
sit back and wait for a response. (actually, there is no such newgroup as
alt.12step.rape.recovery...I'm just making a point) MS...you'll either
be dragged into an argument which will end up nowhere or either flamed or just
perhaps ignored alltogether.
MS...I don't know you...perhaps as I stated above..you may be lonely and
are looking for attention...who knows? But dude...you lack tact...and
have the subtlety of a bag of hammers. Okay fine..you saw a guy with this
stooopid t-shirt...okay, haha..we had a quick laugh..now what MS? Who
really cares about a guy wearing a t-shirt with this inane slogan..!
Let It Go MS...and also, get out of the house and mingle with some mundane
human beings...or whatever...but get away from that damn WebTV...it's
worse than eating 12 bags of Dorritos...and it turning you into a truly
annoying individual...that I'm sorry to say probably won't disappear
until the novelty of his/her WebTV wears off...
Most sincerely...no really..!

My thought would be that the person wearing the shirt didn't think
kids are all that affected by seeing profanity on a T-shirt. I certainly
don't think they're affected. I know I didn't care much about
profanity when I was a kid. It was a rude T-shirt, but not that big of a
It's not like it was a new shirt either. In fact, a few people went to

decided to print up some t-shirts.

Ok, so I promised not to reply to this, ok, so I figured this was flamebait,
but this has gone on too long for me to at least inject my .02 cents into
I am going to try and go through this quoted section bit by bit and see if I
can understand what is being said here.
Hmm, lets see, not caring about the rest of the fandom and in fact giving
fandom a bad name in mainstream America? Last time I checked, Mainstream
America does not live and breath one thought, one mind! What one may find
offensive, others may find praiseable(sp?) True, it may be considered rude
and unacceptable to wear a shirt like that in certain areas of the public, but
consider this. Culture! the same thing that gave birth to the Grunge Look,
the Punk Look! and much more. (following flame material follows!) what would
most of the people's feelings would be if they wore a Southern Flag on their
shirts? Heck, some groups are still arguing over that! However, life still
Some folks would be quite upset if they were told that only a certain
combination of clothing can be worn in public. Think for a minute, this image
was on a T-Shirt! if it was on a bill board, then maybe folks would have
something to crow about! The fact that the T-Shirt was being worn at a event
that fits the theme somehow, now if this was a human image and some degrading
word was used such as Trailer Trash F***er! was used, then I would understand!
Oh, I am not really defending the person who wore the shirt, I don't beleive
in mob justice, too much of that runs in our society today! I am just getting
a tad bit erked that what is ovious is being pointed out in such a way that is
sure to warrent the kind of response I am typing, (Duh, I guess that is why it
is call flames! and like a sucker, I was caught, hook, line, and shrinker!)
bottom line? what is the point of a bottom line anyway! this debate will
carry on until who knows what happens! if not SkunkF***er, then something
else silly like super endowed Vixen T-Shirts! I guess the answer if there is
any would be either toss away those offensive T-Shirts and wear something
wholesome? Can we say Sheep? Baa? Ok, the next question is would I be caught
dead in a shirt like that and acting badly in public? Maybe, Maybe not! it
depends on how I feel about it, but at least I have the choice!!
We all have the Choice!!!
Ok, I'm done with this, this is the last word on this matter you may hear from
me, although I feel the damage is done, I'm now marked as Flame Fodder!
but unlike some of the others that may have been marked in that way, I will
not roll over. I'm just going to curl up in the corner and just watch the
flames lob across the newsgroups and dream of a time when the tool called the
internet was just a Sci-Fi Dream!

Well, such was my plan too, but I can no longer keep silent:
I think 'skunkfucker' is a *wonderful* insult, with those all kicky
crackling Ks and thumping Us. It has body to it, unlike, say,
'kike'. The only better one is 'mackerel snapper', with both K
and P and a wonderful rhythm; it would almost be worth being
Catholic to get called that. Mackerel snapper. Mackerel
snapper. Whee! I don't think it's used any more, which is a
victory for the forces of tolerance but a loss of euphony.
'Skunkfucker', though, is still alive. Let's keep it that way!
Wear it on T shirts, on buttons, tattooed on foreheads.
Why take it as an insult when you can co-opt it, like the
sansculottes and Yankees? The few, the proud, the

I like your thinking, brothuh.

You defuse the insult by adopting it.
Why is it when an artist (or anyone for that matter) gets blown off,
insulted, and chased away for creating or discussing dark or
controverisal subject matter, it's called keeping good taste; but if
they want to tone the spooge/sex/yiff factor by asking people to use
some common sense, it's called censorship?
It all makes so much fucking sense to me now!!!!!

Simple: Sex (at least as exhibited in 90% of furry works I've seen) is
Happy/Lowbrow, while Pondering The Tenets of Graphic Violence, Cynicism,
Nihilism, Hatred and Prejudice is Unhappy/Highbrow. For some reason a lot
of people here find red bodily fluids far more offensive than the off-white

Well, I'll give ya one thing: for a word that's used to debase and
trivialize probably one of the single best physical acts possible of
initiating, 'fuck' is wickedly appropriate for expressing severe
frustration, anger and hatred. 'Specially in a situation like this.
