Robslob, The criticism reported in the media about his tweet, is not about calling her beautiful. It was more about his implication of being surprised, that a beautiful woman can also be smart and witty. It was a ball-busting and I think the public is ridiculous for being offended by this, since it is obviously a joke and he admired her very much. I think he's only guilty of bad timing.

So ridiculouse; he just gave the order of his discovery. He never indicated surprise or wonderment or disdain.

Thank god there was no p##y grabbing involved. Then we'd really have trouble

Those are terms of respect.

I have never seen it happen in The South but in Net York City I once held a door open for a lady and she ripped into me to being a chauvinist. And some people wonder where attitudes come from?

I guess much comes from how you were raised.



Eh, there are rude people everywhere, you just happened to run into a crank (or maybe you referred to her as "son"?). People like to lump NYCers into one basket, but I found people there to be nicer and more honest than any other city in the country (unless I was in the Upper East Side). But when your city is full of zombie tourists everyday, you don't have time to suffer fools on your way from the subway to work.

I did not lump NYCers into any basket. That is your ignorant assumption.
I was simply stating an example that there are some who lack manners.

BTW - those "zombie tourists" help keep NYC alive by spending money and getting heavily taxed.

"Attacked"!..... What ever happened to being taken at your word?...Has the PC crowd forgotten about intent?.....If I approach a Co-Worker or a friend and utter the phrase, "You look nice"...that,...is exactly what I meant....No more, no less.

If I approach a stranger during the mid days of December and say "Merry Christmas"....I have taken absolutely nothing into consideration but, "I wish you the best in this magical time"....No matter your color, race or Religious leanings. My intent is to bestow you with positive energy...If you take it any other way, that is your issue, not mine.

Political correctness be damned.....Say what you feel and if you are cruel or vicious in doing so, well you've everything coming you deserve, you asked for it.

Whoa, calm down, Mr Sensitive! I never said you did, just commenting on many peoples' perceptions of the "Rude NYer". After living in NYC for over 11 years I am fully aware of the economic importance of tourism and would be happy to tell you all about NYC economics in another thread. Take a chill pill. Again, my point, people are eager to be incredulous.

Looks like someone at New York Magazine had no clue about Steve Martin's sense of humor.

You know, I hadn't thought about Martin's remark in that light at all. But now that you mention it.........yeah, it's actually very funny.

And that really supports my whole point in starting this thread: This PC stuff has become SO godd*mn serious, it takes a lot of the fun out of much of life.

I think bhawk nailed it.
That Steve Martin humor angle occured to me as well, and I can see why he just deleted it, these guys are pro comics and are used to stuff just going over peoples' heads or falling flat. Snare roll and cymbal. I'm sure it bothered him less than the masses of twits.

People just need to be who and what they are. Some have more desirable outward physical characteristics that make people see that as their beauty, and they are right, that is a form of beauty. Naturally beautiful women are scorned and hated by other women who are jealous of them. The enviers ought to just work on their inner selves and be the best they can be, cause if you are beautiful, your light will shine and come thru and the world will know it. Do the best with what you were given. As a wise man said "Let Your Soul Shine"!

You label liberals all the time. You may think this is truthful but it is labeling.

Did you ever find out if the rich people you admire have any chance of getting into heaven? If the answer is no does this disqualify their followers as well?

I'm not Christian but I am curious how Christians feel about the obvious conflict between what they believe and how they behave.


How do you know there is a conflict between how they believe and behave?

We live in an age of incredulousness - everyone has to be upset about something. Politicians tap into it to drive their campaigns and inflame latent anger. Local news reporters lead people on the street every time they ask them "aren't you angry about this issue?" just so they can get an angry soundbite.

Unfortunately we also live in an age where social media interactions make the news since the internet is the easiest place to spew anger without real consequences. The reactions of a few dorks with keyboards on twitter isn't news. But people read it and the incredulousness ripple expands. If you ignore the trolls, they will go back under their bridge.


AMEN!
