About 15 years ago it wasn't uncommon to hear the saying "[person] is in a little boat, all on their own."
You just don't hear it anymore.

good spot, I consider the rise and fall of phrases a good indicator of the zeitgeist.
For example, I consider the rise of the terms 'cuck' and 'gaslighting' an insight into the fears of the now, and social trends that relate to them.
For similar reasons the use of gay as a pejorative 'don't be gay' has fallen out of fashion, because we are more comfortable with the idea of bum banditos as a society, but interestingly some faggots are so put off by the word faggot they call it the F-word, and get it banned from media, indicating that they have gained a certain level of power and influence.

I've noticed that younger men are more likely to engage with homoerotic behaviour with each other. Jokingly flirting with friends, that sort of thing.
|>>|| No. 68343
I'm a bumder and call my friends faggots all the time, but casually calling gay men faggots as if that's a perfectly reasonable nomenclature to use is fucking gay as fuck, m8.

>Don't use that word that's our word.

It would be nice for more vintage slurs to make a comeback. Fudgepacker, mooncricket and the like. Miss them.

Still hear 'spacker' thrown about. They're both wonderfully cutting terms. 'Retard' will be sadly missed.

They changed the name of the charity so now the term you are looking for is 'Scoper'.

What a colossal boy molesting fruit you are, fucking lala homo man. This has to be the gayest shit I've ever read and I regularly sext twinks on grindr.
|>>|| No. 68354
Never hear Spacker anymore but Retard is still a popular insult. Arse Bandit and Cock Jockey are good ones too. Faggot is fun but very American.
|>>|| No. 68358
I love a good retard. The problem is that the PC police are going to tell me I can't use it, despite being a verifiable retard. If the fartknockers can reclaim 'faggot', then autists should have dominion over the word 'retard'. That said, how can you tell someone is gay? Do you have to ask them if they say the F word?
|>>|| No. 68359
You've got to ask people if they've dropped their gay card and then see if they look down.

Only because I saw him on a list show or maybe that thing on Channel 4 about how mad it was being at school in the 70s or 80s.

I think we need to drastically rethink our approach to offensive words and profanity in general. When I was youngerthisbeliefwas littlemoretthan an edgy, doug Stanhope-esque freedomto offend principle, but as I've got older I think it's really far more important than that.
It's not vital that I should be able to yell "nigger" when someonekills me on call of duty, nor essentialtthat I be able to scream "retard" at the div who just cut across two lanes in front of me. But I think as these words become less commonplace, we reinforce their taboo, and we make them more powerful. Remember when you were a kid and saying "shit" in front of a parent or teacher felt like the absolute maximum possible transgression?
We will soon find ourselves in a dystopian world where people are driven to assault and murder because somebody said "slag", like it was a 12th century blasphemy. I really think it will get that bad.

My extremely optimistic attitude is that it's something to be negotiated in the battle for equality. For as long as disableds earn less on average than whole people, you're not allowed to call them spastics or cripples or mongs or genetic parasites. Once every building is wheelchair-accessible, that's when we can start laughing at the Paralympics again. And sure, you will get thought-policed into the wrongthink gulag if someone asks you what NWA stands for and you tell them, but that just serves to encourage each and every one of us to hurry up and stop black children and nurses being shot by American police. If you want to ask why there isn't a KFC at the zoo even though that's where monkeys normally live, you'd better get to work voting for black MPs and supporting black-owned businesses, because only when dolphin rape has been eradicated can we once again ask such questions.
|>>|| No. 68365
Well that's really the thing, my extremely pessimistic take is that we will never take real world material action against dolphin rape, ableism or anything like that Because to do so would inherently necessitate the destruction of class inequality and upheaval of the economic structure of society so people will just bend over backwards to use increasingly convoluted euphemisms instead of speaking plainly, and pretend it has acheived the same thing.

I watched something yesterday were a disabled couple had a child and effectively treated her like a slave. She was about 8 and she was doing all of the cooking and cleaning in the house plus helping them move around. It was selfish in the extreme.
|>>|| No. 68368
Better get to work destroying class inequality then, so we can all call each other gaylords again!

An uncle of mine always calls people "knob jockeys", which just sounds too jolly to be an insult. A little Irish fella in brightly-coloured silks having a whale of a time on someone's knob? Fair play to him.
Also they've got lady jockeys these days.
|>>|| No. 68371
It's surprising there aren't more lady jockeys. As far as I'm aware the best jockeys are short and light so many women would fall into that category plus I reckon Dem birthin hips would mean they can straddle a horse better.
|>>|| No. 68372
I think this misunderstands how most words have become taboo from perfectly normal terminology or specific contexts. Then they either move to the replacement or fall out of use entirely.
It's a conveyor belt.
Not sure it matters how comfortably a mong lives, I'd still rather not be one m8. The way you solve this slur is either by curing it or just not having any be born but people have gotten mad about the latter.
>ALSO THEY'VE GOT LADY JOCKEYS THESE DAYS.
I mean, that almost feels like the default.

I've always thought it's a bit wierd how when the family pet starts to become incontinent or there's an injured bird or a mangy fox turns up in our garden, we recognise the humane thing to do is put them out of their misery. But when it's a human we're determined at all costs to make sure they live through til the very bitter end in the most selfish way possible.
Most people don't even have a concept of the ethics, they've never thought for five minutes about the more philosophical aspects of the question. It's just that human life is somehow sacred and that's the beginning and the end of it. Like those lads in the environment thread who are absolutely convinced we've all got to go vegan by 2025 and scrap all forms of transport, but suggesting we have less kids means you're some kind of malthusian neo-nazi.
We should really care more about quality of life than just life itself at any cost.
|>>|| No. 68374
One of the things that gets overlooked when people go on about how wonderful the scandi countries are is that they abort pretty much all of their defective children, which means the state doesn't have to spend billions supporting them. It's probably too snowy and icy there to get about in a wheelchair or on crutches anyway.

>LIKE THOSE LADS IN THE ENVIRONMENT THREAD WHO ARE ABSOLUTELY CONVINCED WE'VE ALL GOT TO GO VEGAN BY 2025 AND SCRAP ALL FORMS OF TRANSPORT
At least one of us (me) was advocating neither. I think probably the only real hope we have is major political change that'll reform our economic system.
|>>|| No. 68377
no it's not. the problem is you're a primitive monkey who can't differentiate the base urges caused by your testicle juices/ovary rotations from rational thought.

"Ethically, someone telling me I shouldn't drive an SUV or live on steak is the same as having to spend your entire life as a helpless dependent only being pitied or resented". I guess you would know what it's like to be a total spastic.

banned from posting on all boards for the following reason:
Being a faggot towards that other faggot, according to the faggot who reported this.
Well you banned me so congrations on doing your job I guess, justice served, but I feel like you haven't understood why you should have.

The only people I'd believe if they asked me to kill them, are the people who are too ill and crippled to ask. If some fit and healthy young lady in a wheelchair asked me to give her the old Kevorkian pillow, I imagine we'd all agree that this was a mental health crisis rather than a physical one, and we shouldn't do it because she'll probably change her mind later on.
And Harvey Weinstein was limping around on a zimmer frame for his trial, and his career's in tatters, plus he's a millionaire. Perhaps he should do the honourable thing and Dignitas himself before it's too late. Just sign this new will before you do it, Harvey.
If we all peer-pressure him we could score a million quid each from this "voluntary" eugenics

What a conveniently impossible set of conditions.
How do you feel about people like karen quinlan, terry chiavo, or paul lamb? people for whom asking for the mercy of death is just about the only fucking thing they can do?
Nah, must be a mental illness that, how can they not be grateful to have their own sons and daughters wiping their arse for the rest of their miserable days.

Are you the same thicko who cannot read timestamps and accuses people of necroposting?
|>>|| No. 68402
i'm very confused i will admit that much.
i quoted a post and someone responded as though the post i quoted wasn't them. which is... i'm not sure what I'm supposed to make of.
i was specifically responding to a statement that post in particular made, i'm not sure what you think it has to do with you.
|>>|| No. 68407
Someone definitely replied to a post I made, and someone else replied to that as though they were me. They aren't.
I also made one of the snooker necroposts, so I will sage this. Are you happy now?

To respond with an utterly retarded question, by that logic, shouldn't virgins be forbidden to use any word with 'fuck' in it?

I can't remember the last time I heard someone say "oh, bollocks" for something going wrong.
Is bollocks dying out?
|>>|| No. 69256
The Irish use it to mean someone nasty or unpleasant, much how we'd use prick. "He's a bollocks" never fails to get a giggle out of me.
|>>|| No. 69258
Prick is probably used even less these days.
I worked with someone who'd say "you can bollocks" instead of fuck off.
