How racist/sexist does a thread have to be?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

How racist/sexist does a thread have to be?

Postby vladimir » Mon Jun 09, 2014 5:59 pm

So, can we criticise people because they are black?

Jewish?

Female?

Just asking, because some fucking retard posted a very racist thread about Cambodian women on a forum that apparently hates black people.

We should get Jews to run such forums, because they have experience of the worst form of racism and would never participate in such vile practices...oh, wait...

In general we frown on racism... but we try to leave it up to our members (and us as members) to bash them for it in the thread. Even if by some miracle it was one of us... don't be afraid to call us out on it, likely we'll reread what we posted and make the appropriate apologies or clarify if it's a misunderstanding.

If it's 'racism/sexism' done in the best possible taste then it should be open slather.

Just not Icelandic black dwarfs cause my sisters married to one and she reads CEO on a regular basis.

Which thread are you talking about? The "Love over money"? The French Bashing Thread?

Vlad's thread got taken off pretty damn quick!
Not sure whether it was the general anti-black comments that pop up over there, or something in particular that raised Vlad's ire - but I agree with Vlad that there are double standards.
In saying that, I find it a bit ironic that ones can be vocal about this issue and yet have so much venom toward different religions (and I speak as an areligious person) on these forums. Aren't you doing the thinking for a thinking person - I mean, can they not make their own intelligent mind up on these matters - I did and do! I don't need someone else telling me that I shouldn't believe what someone else believes, I can do that myself.
In fairness to Vlad though - he hates all!

BTW, nothing wrong with dwarfs - they're awesome!

You know, I don't care if you are black, white,yellow or green. Male, female or not quite sure. Christian, Muslim, J.W. Gay or straight. Fat or skinny. Red head, blonde or brunette. I will happily say "G'day" to (almost) anyone and ask them to sit down and have a beer with me. If I don't ask twice, its because you belong to the one group I am truly and proudly prejudiced against - FOOLS. Everyone of those groups above have their fair share of good and bad people and complete and utter FOOLS. I have neither the time nor the patience to put up with a FOOL. People that generalise about groups, without getting to know the individual, are in my opinion the biggest fools of them all.

I did like that, if only it had a small caveat to include the French, I would support it whole heartedly
