pigcatapult: For future reference, asking something like "What are your preferred gender pronouns?" is much more tactful.

Blue Mew: Yes, that's true. And I think okami was being a bit more blunt about it simply because he was just messing around and trying to be funny.

Blue Mew: he probably didn't realize what he said could be taken the wrong way
Sept 1, 2014 13:33:32 GMT -8
Blue Mew: but ltb didn't need to be so harsh
Sept 1, 2014 13:34:32 GMT -8
Blue Mew: what i think i'm trying to say is that they both made mistakes
Sept 1, 2014 13:36:28 GMT -8
okami: thank you blue

kullenuska: you can also delete the comments.

kullenuska: i'm with ltb on this one, in saying that transgender is not a thing to joke about, unless you are part of that community. same goes with joking about any minority population
Sept 1, 2014 13:59:49 GMT -8
okami: okok i get it i said something wrong in a joke, i dont need the whole forum telling me what i did wrong
Sept 1, 2014 14:05:36 GMT -8
okami: i deleted it happy
Sept 1, 2014 14:06:29 GMT -8
Blue Mew: Okay, listen, you're right- transgender should not be joked about. But Okami wasn't trying to be offensive, and yes he made a mistake but there was no need to yell at him about it. All any one had to say was 'okami, maybe you should delete that, it....

Blue Mew: 'okami, maybe you should delete that, it could be taken as offensive and shouldn't be joked about'

kullenuska: sometimes the hard road is the best way to get the message across, feelings get hurt but lessons get learned, and that stops even greater unrest when some things go unattended for too long, esp. joke material that shouldnt be joke material
Sept 1, 2014 14:16:18 GMT -8
okami: sometimes the hard road is the best way but this isnt one of those times
Sept 1, 2014 15:00:43 GMT -8
okami: ltb coulda just said thats not very nice okami can you please delete it and i woulda been on my merry way
Sept 1, 2014 15:01:03 GMT -8
okami: but instead he had to start this huge fight
Sept 1, 2014 15:01:17 GMT -8
pigcatapult: Well, now we all know better and can move on? I hope?
