I have been reading your recent definitions thread and I believe you may be my mother.  I am unsure of the appropriate course of action.  That is all.

The appropriate actions are to:

1.  Stop hanging out with those hooligan friends of yours,

2.  Wear your galoshes, and

3.  Call more often.  It won't kill you.

 :lulz:

I find this oddly adorable.

I have noticed, however, that it is starting to not really matter what your lineage is, because I can't tell these fuckers apart half the time.

In other words, I personally don't see what matters except that my eye registers a darker skin tone when it's obvious (sometimes not even then), so maybe Nigel and people agreeing with that point of view have a point and skin tone doesn't really play a factor in race.  In fact, if you look at it from the bottom up (DNA to start with), there really is no such thing as race (except for sherpas, maybe), and it's all moot at this point, because every single one of us posting here has ridiculously good luck to have the internet and food and so on.

YESSSSSSSSSS!!!

Ha, thanks. Writing's what I want to do with my life, but I haven't figured out how to make money at it yet...

I really want to see your version of a romance novel.

I'm at this very moment working on a short story about a vampire who uses his "Edward System" to feed on teenage girls who are fans of Twilight, only to have his latest would-be victim turn out to be crazy as fuck and start stalking him. Does that count?

That sounds AWESOME.

To give my assessment of Nigel's original point, as I understand it, the term "white" does not have anything to do with skin color, but rather cultural privilege. So by referring to us all as "bored middle-class white people" she is saying that we have the money and cultural privilege to fritter away time on Discordia.

Yes, that was my original point. I even explained its origins; why I started playing around with the idea of race as a condition of privilege in the first place.

Race is interesting, partly because it's so fluid and difficult to define. Like gender it's a social construct, and like gender it's really fucking hard to pin down and discussing it makes people really uncomfortable.

The US is teeming with black middle-aged women poet-witches. I shit you not, it's a "thing".

As far as black Americans and religion, here:

Oh, and perhaps he wants to turn this thread into a semantic argument over whether the more Arab faction of the native Turkish population are Caucasian or Asian.

The PD is not just a white thing though... Purple Eris is a Turk and she's embraced Discordianism, so have some of her friends. Over at MLA, there are people from a number of countries... or at least there were back in the day when it was really active. Discordianism is far larger than this forum... and this forum is good for a specific kind of Discordian. From my experience its not the kind of Discordians that tend to pop up in countries outside of the US (angry, middle class, privileged and itching for someone to knock the apple chip off of their shoulder). If we want diversity, we have to accept diversity. We tend to accept variety more easily than diversity, IMO. That is, small variations from the core are fine... but someone who decides that Eris is their goddess... or that fnords are really funny or that dada is their thing.... this isn't the kind of place they'll find a welcome.

Somewhere in his post I think he is addressing some valid points, but he manages to completely shoot them in the foot with the following:

1. He uses PurpleEris as an example of some kind of point about nonwhites embracing Discordianism. Now, there are several nonwhites on this forum, but PurpleEris is not one of them. We've all seen her pics. If she's not "white", racially speaking, just because she's Turkish, then neither is 000, nor teh whole troupe of Britspags, and if we're going to redefine "white" to mean "non-American", then this whole conversation may as well be scrapped because potato the yellow fandangle.

Then on top of that was his completely ass-grabbed premise that because black people are more likely to be Baptist, therefore they are less likely than white people to rebel against their upbringings, and somehow also those that do are less likely to think for themselves.  

WTF Ratatosk, just WTF. On both points.

WTF.

Reread this and see if you can figure it out. I can give you a couple hints; you are not proving your false premise with your false comparisons.

Now you're just responding to try to pick a fight. I'm going to ignore you, as you are adding no content here.

For posterity, this was Nigel's avatar:

And I think it's wonderful.

It is, rather!

Have I been shit flinging up to this point? I'm just asking you to stop talking now because your incredible ignorance and naivete is embarrassing to witness. I can't even address it... I'm hoping someone else will.

Well I'll make sure that the friends I met are aware of how bad those deep tans can be for their health. I mean the whole village had kind of an olive tone to it, I can't imagine the skin cancer rates... and those poor sods from the kurdish areas must really hit the tanning booths...

I'll also let my friends who are black know that they have no culture that is based heavily on chirstianity. I'm sure that they will appreciate that their perceptons of religion are terribly uninformed and flawed.

Thanks for the corrections Nigel. I don't know what I would ever do without your wisdom.

ETA: I'll also let them know that growing up as poor Muslims in a small fishing village is analogous to being privileged white middle-class Americans. I'm sure they will agree.

You're really projecting, here, and assuming a lot. Please, like I said, before, stop talking; you're just making yourself look worse.
