Is There A "Devil" In Pastafarianism?

Postby Redcell on Thu Apr 13, 2006 12:57 am

Does the Flying Spaghetti Monster have a counterpart that has the opposite values of the noodly appendaged one?

It's genetic.



I thought such sexist prejudice was a no-no here. You disappoint me auntie.

I thought that she rather tempered it by saying "so do some women".

Anyway, what she was saying was not an ugly thing. I hope you were not offended.

Accurate observation is rarely characterized as prejudice. Personally, I am renowned in my own small circle for reading the instructions before I even take the actual things out of their boxes, and I know several other men who act similarly.
Nevertheless, I agree. Men don't read the instructions...

Meromorph, your leading comment disproves your final comment. Your post was non-sensical.

I believe what you meant was 'many men/most men/a lot of men don't read the instructions'.

The fact of the matter is that such stereotyping and gerneralizations can be harmful. If you still don't understand I suggest you read this article.

Ah, yes, I can see the harm that the popular prejudicial idea that "men don't read the manual" has done: few men ever getting hired in technical professions (where manual-reading skills are essential), few men in the military (since operating complex weapon systems without reading the manual is downright dangerous), men being systematically rejected from positions in higher education, medicine, science, finance, law, information technology, engineering, and higher levels of corporate management all because of the mistaken notion that they won't read manuals. That's why women unfairly dominate all of those fields.

Oh, wait. No they don't.

Perhaps, Hogarth, you'd like to explain the harm that this particular generalization has caused. 'Cause I'm not seeing it.

On the other hand, scolding a moderator with your second post to a forum -- that, in my experience, can cause all kinds of harm. Wait and see.

Or lighten up just a little. Here's the problem with your reasoning:

I believe what you meant was 'many men/most men/a lot of men don't read the instructions'.


If you understood what Auntie and The Meromorph meant (which was pretty obvious, after all), and what was meant is not offensive, then there's no problem. Unless you're suggesting that although you understood what they meant, other readers will not, because they're not as smart as you. Is that what you're suggesting?

ooooooowned!

and DD, I'm pretty sure if we get access, we can set up a thing where you must read the FAQ, and a little disclaimer type thing that says "by clicking yes, you are saying that you have read everything on this FAQ and you have no problem being temporarily banned for asking them" or something to that effect. or have it say that, then the user must type it word for word so that they have agreed to that, instead of just clicking yes.

Maybe I'm just being nosy...but who exactly is this Hogarth/VforVenganza/Edward character? A lot of talk seems to be centred around him lately.

Someone who felt that a haughty attitude and accusations of libel directed towards the staff here were an effective way to get his viewpoint across. He must be a masochist, since he keeps trying to sign up under different user names to expose our libel and aggression.

Tons of fun.

Thanks. I thought it must be something like that.

Tons of fun.


You sounds pretty sadistic yourself there. Good match?

Good to know. Rudeness, meanness, backwards logic, proxies etc. all bad.

Seems like he went through a bit a trouble to prove him. Sounds pretty pathetic to me...
