Ho is a women that sleeps around with 15 hundred different men. ho implies violence against women?
The way I read it, I figured she meant that "Slap - A - Ho" was offensive to a woman that has been the subject of sexually related violence. Not just the 'Ho' part.
I think 'Ho' is an offensive term itself to most women, mainly because there is no real male equivalent used in every or even slang speech. We have *****, prostitute, ****, ho, etc. for women that sleep around. But what do you call a man that sleeps around? A man. Ever try using 'Jigalow' in everyday conversation? Doesn't happen. He's just... a man. Uses of those kinds of words are derogatory toward all women in general, and it's just not a nice thing to hear.
only the women that are ho's do take offense to it. they are the one with a guilty conscience and cry up a storm when someone says ho. they have a guilty conscience because they know they sleep around and feel bad about it. now those are the people that take offense to the name.
Not true. I'm a woman. I don't sleep around with a lot of men. I don't have friends that sleep around with a lot of men. Yet your previous name still offended me.
In fact, I did happen to see you around before your name was changed. I didn't scream and cry over it. It's not traumatizing, or horrible. I just wrinkled my nose and thought to myself, 'Well now, that's crass.'
but i know plenty of women that crack up over the name and they are women and they never took offense to it.
I'm sure that there are women out there that think it's hilarious. I'm sure there are also men out there that think it's crass.
But I guess my biggest problem with your attitude on this thread can be summed up in a series of quotes from your last reply.
But, you aren't. Read on to see why.
you know what man? i dont care.
BUT otherwise WHO cares anymore???? i dont even care.
You don't care. You can't be sorry if you don't care, and don't care if anyone else cares.
You're not sorry. And well, I don't think you should be FORCED to be sorry about it. You are entitled to you own opinions of what is funny or not. But don't say you're sorry when you're not and you really don't care if people were offended or not.
I understand that this thread was intended to give a shout out to your friends so they know what happened to your old name. That it was intended to poke fun at the GMs for being so strict about name changes. But you have to expect to draw a little flack from the name too, especially flaunting it the way you are.
