InfamousGreed7 adds more data to our running theory that adding an emoticon at the end of anything makes it sound nicer.
“I got this after a match in Halo 4 from one of the guys on my team.”
Can someone explain to me what “gg” stands for?
Yeah and it should have stayed at “good game.”
Well, two-thirds of the message was friendly.
“Why are you guys focusing on one word when most of the message was positive?!”
Good post limp dick ^.^
I’d probably reply with, “gg, prick ^^”
Might not know its sexist, without the usual bile its hard to tell if its ment to be offensive
TBH I use the word alot, moslty to describe Piers moron and the Brittish goverment
Usually males, though, right?
mostly males, and only with people that know my verbal habits. I don’t use it to offend and avoid using it against women
I would reply with
“Thanks, cupcake! ^_^ ”
But thats just me. Some people might make a witty vernacular jab in return.
I see nothing wrong with this; Cunt is what we call our friends in my country.
This just reads as a really friendly message in every way and that’s not even sarcasm.
Glad you chose to use a throwaway email address, anon. I presume the country of which you speak is Anonistan?
I heard the exchange rate is REALLY great there! Unless you’re a ‘wo-man’, of course.
So… did this person just not know English very well? Because I played a game with someone once who wasn’t a native English speaker who didn’t seem to know that “n*****” was an impolite thing to call someone…
Umm this is a standard response here in Australia, gg cunt, it’s a friendly blokey way of saying good game mate.
Here in Australia, nnnnno it isn’t. I’ve heard blokes call each other ‘cunt’ when they were good buds, but in any other context it’s derogatory like everywhere else.
I’m an Australian and my Mum calls me a cunt everyday.
Guys, my friends and I call each other cunts all the time; they wouldn’t have used a “^_^” if this was a nasty message.
There’s a difference between friends using pejoratives with each other, and using one with a stranger. The “^_^” can easily be ironic, so there no evidence that this isn’t a nasty message. Fact is, we don’t know enough about the situation to tell either way.
Still, no matter the intent of the sender, it’s still a rude thing to say to a stranger and people should have enough understanding of decorum to think, “Maybe there are, somehow, some people out there who don’t like to be called a “cunt”– even in a friendly way! Do I really need to use that word here? Or am I being a selfish piece of shit?”
This is just nitpicking, there are plenty of great examples of guys being stupid but this is just some one being nice, I’d expect the same response from any guy. Oh I forgot, women want equal treatment… except when they get special treatment.
Great comment, rapist! :)
Typical feminist, crying out rape at the first sign of opposition.
I’m not saying you rape. I’m just calling you a rapist– you know– in a friendly way. Don’t you see the smiley? And I said “great comment”. How could you possibly interpret my comment as me being anything other than nice? Maybe you shouldn’t be so super-sensitive.
The funny part is you think it offends me, Men aren’t crybabies over words like feminists are. You can call me scum, rapist and anything else you want. I’ll continue to laugh at you and your “movement”.
It’s times like these I really hate how Disqus took away our fun toys. On the other hand, I can still blacklist people who demonstrate no redeeming value whatsoever.
I thought you were offended because that would give some context as to why you took a swipe at feminists. So I suppose you, with complete clarity of mind, attacked a group that has nothing to do with me? Do you not understand that you don’t have to be a feminist to call someone a “rapist”? It’s true! Go ahead and look it up!
” Men aren’t crybabies over words…”
Granted, but I’d add that men aren’t petulant as to make up reasons to attack groups they disagree with, as children do.
Hehehehehehe! I see what you did there! XDDD
You assume that women want to be equal to guys like the dude who wrote that? No, I think its fair to say that people with common decency generally just want to be left alone to do their own thing without being abused or going out of their way to harm others. But um, please do list these ‘special’ treatments womenz get. Do you mean all those forced medical procedures? Or are you talking about the ‘she gets into the lifeboat first’ myth? Or maybe the door-holding? Boy oh BOY do I love me some door-holding! Or maybe you’re just referring to this ‘special (just for women)’ language we see so colorfully illustrated here and then defended by folks like you, which is, of course, just a neat little extension of the much more tangible physical atmosphere of hate and violence world-wide? Please, you must be more specific! ^_^
Cupcake would still have been pretty unsavory in my opinion! : S
Once again, this is pretty funny and clearly not intended to be offensive. Don’t take the internet so seriously.
Do you have an issue with people choosing to remain anonymous on the internet?
“There’s a difference between friends using pejoratives with each other, and using one with a stranger”
You are aware that this is the internet, right?
