Don’t say colored.
Dreadful stripper is the only stripper of color I am aware of.
I like that this gal told this “asker” not to say “colored” when referring to people who are not Caucasian…but perhaps also explaining why that term might be offensive would be helpful.
Using the word “colored” makes race sound more like an identity. As we know, people are not their race, gender, disability, sexuality, career, etc. Rather, they are individuals (unique human beings) with these characteristics. Using ‘person first’ language is usually accepted as an appropriate way to address someone or a group of people without offending.
For example, a more appropriate way to address the above individual is “A woman who is African American”.
Person first language is a good way to avoid labeling and allows us to maintain our individuality.
(Merely coming from an educated opinion).
Everything else you said appears to be right on.
what if instead of a same gender detective partnership who keep getting mistaken for a romantic couple, you had a same gender romantic couple who keep getting mistaken for detectives
‘hello, I’m sam darling, and this is my partner gregory hitch’ ‘AH YES THE PRIVATE DETECTIVES’ ‘what??? no we just came for some ice cream why is there police tape everywhere’
tim schafer, founder of double fine studios, which made gems like psychonauts, grim fandango, brutal legend, the secret of monkey island and other great games posted a tweet with a link to a video talking about violence against women in video games.
jon jafari, who is following tim on twitter, decided he wasn’t happy watching a video that had comments disabled that talked about such a sensitive topic, and decided to make his opinion very well known.
and then as jon’s voracious fanboys were attacking mr. tim schafer on twitter, telling him to kill himself since he’s “outlived his welcome”, jon decides to send this tweet in:
which not only spurned his fanbase on to send hatemail towards tim, but also made tim out to be the bad guy in this conversation.
which he absolutely wasn’t.
So, it seems the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon has claimed some of its first victims. People have already died because of unsafe BDSM practices copied off this poor excuse of a book. So, to any of the people here who might have an interest in BDSM, let me beg you to at the very, very least, never forget the following:
Charlotte and I handmade our outfits for the French Cafe Garden Party in Le Manoir de l’Île aux Loups. It was a magical day and was amazing to wear nearly 3 months of hard work and feel like princes!
