If I call someone a misogynistic, racist, xenophobic a-hole, then that is judgmental.
That seems accurate. And there are some on here.

Glad we are "clarifying".

What if someone makes a statement that seems disparaging or racist to you, but not everyone else, is it a fact or a figment of your imagination?

Should those statements be voted on by the members of the board, or do you feel you get to decide?

You certainly are speaking from personal experience on the A hole.

I don't think it's a reflection of America as a whole, and I hope it's not a reflection of The Villages Community. Any thoughts, and please don't bother with the name calling because I don't give a flip about what you think of me personally or politically. Just curious if others get the same sense.

Which of the 3 is the above?


The 3 flavors of political p*ssy logic:

Disapproval: "Oh honey I'm so disappointed in you..."

Fear: "Oh honey, that scares me."

Personal destruction: "That's a bad man, he _____"

I get to decide for me. You get to decide for you. And so on, and so on, and so on. Frankly, it's not that difficult to read a statement and know if it is disparaging, demeaning, or denigrating and to determine to which group the statement is directed. I think most of us can do it and agree. If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's likely a duck.

It is just common sense which seems quite uncommon these days.
