especially: one who regards or treats the members of a group (as racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

Nice edit, Mrs. Houchins.  I'm sure you hope for  the best from your son, but please tell your son that even words like b!tches demonstrate a willingness to objectify and dehumanize the target. 


I was waiting for that post :lol:

Mrs. Houchins, the kid screwed up, he's learned his lesson. I hope they sign him and give him some sensitivity training, thinking of it as a crash course in PR.

No, JCA was just wise-cracking.

Isn't it a minor meme when posters with suspicious strong personal feelings join?

The "Mom" bit is a bit of a meme here and elsewhere in the Natmosphere. 

That said, I hate the word Saint suggested is harmless when it equates a human to an animal. I don't mind it quite so much when it is used to describe complaining.  I don't Claim to be a "saint" on this one because sometimes I'll slip, but I cannot stand it being used in a casual, common manner, as Saint suggested ZH was doing.  There's a museum near the Mall on Raoul Wallenberg Place that has plenty of films and posters equating people to rodents and vermin; the sort of dehumanizing that conditions a population to doing violence.  I see it propaganda all the time against the less powerful in various countries.  When I saw PETA with posters equating death camps to farming, I lit into the a$$hole from that organization (I think factory farms and cruelty to animals are bad in and of themselves, not because of some anthropomorphic equating of animals to people).  I don't even call terrorists animals, and I think the B word promotes hostility to women.  Some Saint.

Dmitri Young choked out his girlfriend just a few months before coming to DC, where he was hailed as a hero because he had a big smile and could hit the ball up until the point where he got extended, dude even got a bobblehead night.  All this Houchins kid did was imitate what he hears everyday from rappers and shock jocks and made the mistake of posting dorm room bullcrap on Twitter, a dumb move, but not in the same ballpark as far as contemptible characters.  Was everyone here a Young hater after his first season in DC?

I was very unhappy that he was signed.
