Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat May 11, 2013, 10:58 PM

Someone calling themselves "celibate" just because nobody will fuck them...

...is inaccurate and misleading. Claiming to be part of a group that you might fit into if it were your choice is not the same as being part of that group.

There must be a word for this.

Oh, BTW... I suggest that everyone on DU be tested on this chart. If you fail, you get kicked off of DU.

1. Could you make it big enough to read or link to it?

Would appreciate that.

20. Me2 n/t

Not sure if I will put it up on my wall or send it to my ex-bandmate in San Francisco who, driven crazy by that town's NIMB-erals, converted to the Dark Side.

He shows up on my Facebook to regurgitate RW talking points loaded with stuff on that poster and every time I take him to school...

He keeps coming back for more because I never insult him personally. I lived in SF for 16 years. I know exactly why he flipped and I believe there is hope for my friend. Living in the Bay Area Bubble can drive people mad; they want to be liberals, but it takes something like a new homeless shelter going up in the neighborhood before the true colors are displayed... or maybe they moved into a hip live-work loft 2 blocks from Slim's, then started calling the cops to complain about the music...

I handled my own frustration differently; I moved to Orange County... into Darrell Issa's Gerrymandered Tragic Kingdom. Here, you don't have to wait 5 years before people turn into jerks; you know in about 5 minutes where everyone stands. I get way more done here and have made some solid allies.

13. Composition/division was my conclusion as well...

...but there's gotta be a sexier word than that in English...

We did miss Schadenfreude, however

I think we should alert on any argument seen on DU that relies on a logical fallacy, whether we agree with the intention or not.

Since shooting them would make us just like them, we have to be better than them if we want to beat them.

2. Ditto. Too small to read.

I looked around a little on the web but didn't find it.

5. You can always find someone to have sex with

It's called prostitution. If you're in Nevada you can actually do it legally. Of course with just your random post I have no idea what actually made you so upset and like the others I can't read your image because of the size.

14. Well, yeah... but then it's a slippery slope

Last edited Sun May 12, 2013, 03:25 AM - Edit history (1)

The "I don't pay for sex" people get started, then the "rape-culture" people show up, then the "men's rights" people, then the Pros... then we're back to the same ol' GD.

EDIT: I'm not particularly upset. I wanted to find out if there was a word for what I described, then I remembered the poster...

22. Ha ha, pretty funny

Half the mugshots in my online hometown newspaper are of people who were arrested for soliciting or engaging in prostitution.

8. My keen observation over a long period of time has been...

...there's somebody who will fuck anybody.

And I spent many years of my youth in grateful acknowledgment of that fact.

16. Bwahaha! Calling them "Freepers" doesn't really work, though.

But I like the way you think...

Calling them "Freepers" wouldn't work because Freepers have so many other charming characteristics

There has to be a word for this somewhere...

17. If I go too long without sex, I just say I'm a "Born Again Virgin"...

Too long = A week or so

Could that be the word you're looking for.... born again virgin??



Peace,

Ghost

18. No, but that's definitely funny. Plus...

It doesn't reek of the denial that false claims of celibacy do...

No English word for this sort of thing, I guess I could make one up...

I already made up "Wouldstein" and "Ebertificate."

21. Thanks, lol! How about "John McCain"... because he got shot down in flames so much? 5 planes McCain

Remember that from his campaign?

"just because nobody will fuck them..." = Shot down in flames


Peace,

Ghost

19. Which fallacy does that fit under?

False cause? Special pleading?

Anyway, I see a couple of fallacies I had not heard about. Thanks.

Edit: Do you have a link to that? I want to click on it so I can read the fine print.
