Asian People Please Forgive Me
I have forsaken the "O" word because I have done some research and figured out this is not acceptable UNLESS I move to Europe and I sure as hell do not want to be a stinking European. Oh crap. There I go getting myself in trouble again.
I had a nice talk with LJ and she explained the difference to me. I swear to whatever deity you all believe in that I had no idea. Her explanation was kind of lacking though. I mean she was like "Oriental is Rugs not People".. which inherently is correct but someone made those rugs didn't they? Was there a long lost race of Oriental people that the Asians hated? I had to do some research so I would not offend my new friend.
I actually do not use the "O" word usually.. Even if I had no idea it was bad. I was influenced by reading some other websites that were using the word. So when I was writing my post it was on the top of my mind.
I mean I think I am winning her over. I believe she is offering to do gratuitous sexual things to me but I am not sure. I had to look up BWOP too.
Waffles wouldn't know about "O" people even if one bwopped on his face.
Sounds like an offer to me??!?!? No? Even if it is not one I think this is a sure sign I am winning her over. So I found a really good article that explained why the "O" word was "O"ffensive. Serves me right for watching Bonanza and old John Wayne movies.
So I am still confused as to how bad of an insult it is. Like does it rank up with the "N" word for blacks? Can other Asians call each other "O"? Like "Heyyyy whassssup O".
Also is it considered bad when I hear people at my table say things like "Freaking LAG Asian bastards!" At least they use the right terminology.
I have no idea. It is impossible for someone as socially retarded as me to ever figure out what is polite and politically correct. I will continue to try and learn and adapt though.
I also found a whole country that is totally politically incorrect. I can not believe George Bush has not bombed these guys yet. I am writing my Congress man now. Sick sick people.
Anyway I hope my new friend will accept my sincere apology and realize I spoke out of ignorance not any kind of degradation of any people. I am an equal opportunity hater and do not hate based on race, creed, color, or any other factors. Breathing is enough. Until later.
