Thread: Prejudice: met any?

    Default Prejudice: met any?

    In another thread I said



    for what it's worth, let it be pointed out that I have never heard a bad word spoken to or about a member - personally - on the subject of race, religion (or lack thereof) age, skin colour, or ethnicity, or sexual identity/orientation.
    Yes - individuals do not always get on; there have even been squabbles and fights. But I haven't seen any negativity towards members based on their being members of groups: like the socialists, Arabic speakers, Afro-Canadians, Aboriginal people...

    Yeah, some people don't much care for certain religions or the churches that (claim to) represent them... but still I haven't seen members negged say, for being Jewish, however one may disagree with Judaism as a whole, or sects within it, or the Israeli government... like some right-wingers are dead set against socialism but are not unkind to the members who happen to be socialistic.

    Or have you encountered anything to the contrary?

    (this is a branching-off from Luvsgirl's rant... about how Bio-girls run a high risk of maltreated: being hit on and stalked... and generally treated as no more of a person than their chromosomes and their kink.)

    I've been called a 'british fag' on xbox live. This was after I insulted their grammar and insistence on playing rap music.

    Seriously though, I've never faced any, although I've seen it and seen it seriously. I'm not much of a target - white, male, not publicly bi, but one of my friends went through a real hard time at school. It got sorted and he wasn't affected though, but it hurt emotionally. He was new, moved in during the peak of the recession. Some idiots father said some things after he lost his job, son spread it round school and rumours were afoot. Thank god he told someone quickly, and got the issue sorted

    If these are the qualifications, this means that I, too, am a "British fag."

    Indeed, if the qualifications are appreciating good grammar while abhorring bad, and disliking constant rap music, then I propose we set up the "I'm a British Fag--and Proud of It" club.

    Now that's a club!

    Isn't a british fag a cigarette? Score 1 for me!

    I'm a white male living in a racially tolerant society (i.e. the GTA, Canada) but I have dealt with people of various backgrounds using their ethnicity to sway people into their way of thinking. Such as saying "I'm only being yelled at because I'm black!". NO! You are being yelled at for spraying graffiti on the walls! Being black has NOTHING to do with this.

    Have I witnessed racism? Yes.
    Have I ever been treated discriminitorally? No. (Unless you count my bio teacher calling me a hobbit because I'm short, but it was clever and made me laugh so I let it go.)

    Sorry - I wasn't clear - I meant have you met any of the kind of prejudice I described on ADISC?

    Raccoon, when you referenced Luvsgurl's post, I knew that you were asking specifically about ADISC. Anyway, I can not recall seeing anything that was blatently prejudiced posted anywhere in the public sections of this site. When I first joined this community, I thought that I would be a particularly easy target for abuse, being both a *B/DL and a Transgendered, sissy LG as well. Much to my surprise, however, I was met with kindness, and understanding by many of the members here and, at the worse, indifference by the rest. Unlike those outside of this community, I have never had anyone treat me badly here. There are three members here that were extremely helpful and kind to me when I joined this group, and I have never really thanked them properly. With your indulgence, I would like to express a special ' Thank-You ' to Pojo, Charlie F., and Cupcake. They were, and are, exceptionally kind, good-hearted individuals. And Icey, too.(...but Icey is always sweet and kind to everyone.) All in all, I think this is a well behaved, respectful group of people. I am grateful to be here.

    all dem gay black liberal jews need to go back to mexico!
    but seriously...
    I think it takes a certain type of person who will openly admit to themselves they have a fetish, or alternative lifestyle, and the people who are intolerant of others for something as petty as skin color does not fall into that category.
    It occurred to me that I dont know the race, age, sex (in many cases, anyway) or religion of any of you. we are all tolerant, and I dont see hate or contempt from any of you. It is kinda nice, since I live in a quite intolerant neo-con area.
