So that link took me to another link and somehow I ended up at the insta of a latex lady.

I mean no regrets but who'd have guessed it going in?

Just because it's a dare doesn't mean you have to do it. I consider myself blameless in this instance.  :P

My arm is better, but I missed an entire argument over word usage.

Just posting to say, having had that word thrown at me a good number of times for holding my boyfriends hand in public, seeing it used by The Straights in yet another clueless way feels... Not great.

The Straights

Thanks for that, Descan. It feels good to know I'm your enemy because of my sexual orientation.

Oh wait.

Well, it's a fair enough connection to make when it's only straight people calling you something.

Though I don't feel that separating people into the somewhat strangely named "straights" and "non-straights" is the right way to go. Best just to say idiots rather than equate insensitivity to that group.

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/09/28/495821834/coins-from-the-roman-empire-are-found-in-ruins-of-japanese-castle

I'd say it's plausible. Chinese silks were traded as far as Rome itself. Some dude probably got paid in Constantine's metal face and brought them back across the Silk Road. Not quite sure how they got to Japan, though. Or how the Ottoman coins got there.

The value of coins was derived from their weight, not what was on them. A gold coin from the Roman Empire would've been equally valid payment in China and Japan as gold coins of the same weight minted in any other place. You could melt a pound of coins down, smith them into a necklace, and it would still be worth the exact same amount. If coins made their way from Rome to China there is no reason that they wouldn't have been able to use those to pay for goods or services in Japan (unless there are historic circumstances visavi currencies in China and Japan that I am not aware of, of course).

Truly dire straits.

And taking away the semi-sarcasm, it's not. You are equating someone who calls you the-word-that-must-not-be-mentioned-despite-the-fact-that-fear-of-the-name-increases-fear-of-the-thing-itself with straight rather than jackass, which isn't the right approach.

Well I've only ever been called a fag by The Straights (unless it's affectionate from a Fellow Queer, and even then, they ask first) and I've only seen The Straights use it so cluelessly in other contexts. Usually if a Fellow Queer uses it in the 4chan manner and someone asks them not to, they go "shit sorry bro" and don't try to die on the hill of calling people fags even if they're bothered because free speech.

Calling you something that you don't want to be called doesn't appear to me to be the preserve of straight people.

Again, jackasses, maybe. But you'll get gay people doing the same to you - for instance if you were ginger, they might call you a ginger or something - it's just that for them that name is more loaded than the other myriad little annoying words everybody uses to describe everyone else.

A gay person would call me Irish as quickly as a straight person would, and no matter that I hate that. Other people from Northern Ireland would understand and not call me that were I to express a desire for it to be so. Doesn't mean I think that everyone not from my country is a jackass. Just that they're more aware about that particular form of jackassery.

Basically, tarring people with brush, yada yada.
