Anonymity

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Yeah I happen to agree with you but I'm not a teacher. I’m just someone that worked in the disability sector and wanted to correct the wrong.

Actually I think the PC stuff has gone too far and ask any Khmer with a disability and I can assure you that don't give a shit whether its people with disabilities or disabled person.

I appreciate the irony and try to avoid being pedantic about semantics.
In my defense I did manage to post some relevant comments before derailing the thread. Also, G-Mac started it! :twisted:

LoL! ! !

I was simply trying to point out examples of times you're not in the wrong, but still might benefit from a little bit of privacy online.

Far more politically correct? A country where you can use racist terms with people you barely know? A country which doesn't have any race quotas or affirmative action programs*, unlike the UK or the US?

*Except for a tiny selection of low-level civil service jobs which are reserved for our dusky mates

I'm calling oxymoron.

What the "anonymity" of Internet discussion has taught me is to focus on a person's reasoning, thoughts, ideas and opinions without taking into account gender, age, race, professions, and so on.
Good point this.
Since working out that you are a woman I have found your, anyway excellent, posts even more interesting.

What is that: a kind of benign sexism, positive discrimination?

I only have two close black friends and they both despise positive discrimination, or whatever the term is.
