    That's raucous laughter. Which potentially could cause a ruckus, but usually does not.

    Do you know what marginalizing is?
    Lots of people call me socially ignorant. They are right. I just don't care, I am not interested in most peoples feelings.

    Didn't you just tell me marginalizing people is positive and negative stereotyping or some such? Like I said I get stereotyped and marginalized all the bloody time. I don't care. I don't worry about others opinions of me, they don't matter. Its what I DO that does. Action always speak louder than words. My actions speak for me and about me. Stereotypes be damned. If I want respect I earn it.

    Ok, well, stereotyping is bad for society. It's doesn't matter who is or is not offended, that crap about offense is for stupid people.

    Stereotyping is part of the human condition. Get over it, cause it aint going away, not by a long shot. Your just pissing in the wind trying to make human nature go away.

    Why are you against understanding stereotypes and their impact on society?

    If they can take and hold it. Every part of the world that populated has been taken from someone. Every race has lost and gained land. For some idiotic reason most people act like the native Americans were the first it happened to. Or that it was some rare thing. Hell, even native American tribes took land from others. It's no different.

    So I guess that makes everything okay. I'm sure the holocaust survivors will be happy to know that.

    The western expansion was not genocide (driven by such motivation), it was bloody land grabbing.

    I wouldn't use most team names in public. If I saw a very tall person I wouldn't say "Hey Giant" either. Let's change the name of the Giants.

    I have a good story about the "Giants". When I was young we kept telling my younger brother we were going to see the Mets and Giants play at Shea stadium. He was 4 or 5 at the time. So we get to the stadium and show him the players on the field. The orange and gray are the Giants and the blue and white are the Mets. After looking over the field for a few minutes he says.....
