Can't you see---"Essential" is for terminally stupid blacks as in "don't sell me no shit I don't need", and "Intoductory" is for marginally stupid whites as in "I'll try it but if I don't like it I'm outta here",  and FYI the "top of the line"  version is for the brilliant yellow races like those in North Korea and Tepco workers and Japanese game show participants ---you know-- the new Asian rulers of the world. Ad people are disconnected beyond belief or are selling their ad product to execs in companies like MS who haven't a clue about their customers. Fact is only reason anyone buys MS is cause you need to opertate most new laptops----that will last until you don't.

Get it through your thick PC-muddled heads, all you idiots downarrowing me on this subject --- the continent of Asia consists of FAR more than just the Orient!  Go look at a fucking map or a globe if you don't believe me.

You're a complete idiot.

Oriental means "eastern," or east of Europe. There is not a single Asian that would refer to himself in terms of his geographic position relative to Europe. Only dumb, right-wing hillbillies make this mistake. Oriental is an adjective that describes a geographic region or a culture, NOT a person... e.g. Oriental vase, Oriental rug, etc. In fact, most Asians would be offended if you called them Orientals.

You really have a penchant for making a total fool of yourself.

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 00:43 | 4464328 akak
akak's picture

If you seek an idiot, please look in the mirror.

The word "Oriental", meaing "of the East", is no more offensive or racist or ethno-centric than the (less commonly used) word "Occidental", meaning "of the West", pertaining to Europeans and their descendants wherever found in the world.

EVERY Oriental or person of Oriental heritage whom I know either refers to themself as Oriental, or else is indifferent to the term.  However, some of them DO take some offense at being called "Asian" when "Oriental" is really meant, as they rightfully acknowledge that the Orient does not constitute ALL of Asia.

And anyway, you PC dipshit, what does it matter, and how is it some kind of offense, if the word "Oriental" WERE ethno-centric in regards to Europeans and their descendants?  I have news for you, asshole: MANY of the words various ethnic groups around the world use to refer to themselves translate as "The People", or "The Real People", implying that all those of other tribes or ethnicities are somehow not "real people".  Yet I have never heard anyone from outside these groups take offense at this linguistic habit.  In fact, many Orientals themselves, by their own admissions, are FAR more racist and ethno-centric than most Westerners (oops, there I go again!), commonly using such phrases as "foreign devils" to refer to all those not of their culture or ethnicity.  Where is your hypocritical outrage over that?

It is ONLY on the hyper-PC West Coast of the USA that I have ever encountered this ignorant "Asian=Oriental" nonsense.  Please take your politically-correct obfuscations and redefinitions and shove them up your hyper-hypocritical PC ass.

And oh, by the way, speaking of supposed prejudice and ethnic bias, not to mention hate, this same poster is the one who blamed the decline of the USA on ignorant Southern rednecks:

Actually, you're the idiot.  Oriental was certainly used to mean people from the Orient from the late middle ages until the 1970s when the PC police made the distinction you are making.  So, for hundreds of years, it was simply a word used without controversy, then some college professors decided to make a thing of it.

Oriental as an adjective absolutely was used to describe a person, and completely properly so based on the Latin root.  If the direction was relative to Europe, it's hard to see why this, alone, makes it "racist" given other terms that are not.  China referred to itself as the Middle Kingdom  (meaning, in part, geography).  Jews use gentile and goy to refer to all people but them - a blanket term for "the other" absent in most languages - is that "racist" too?  Gentile regards "the other" in the same exact way "oriental" was deemed to be.

Double standards for you though I bet, eh?

Do you refrain from using the term Australian?  No - no you don't you cunt, do you?  Same geospatially orientated kind of term as oriental

What I think is racist, is you purporting to know what "most Asians" - by which you must mean East Asians, you ignorant slut - think about the matter. 

As someone whose dated a lot of oriental girls, I don't recall polling them, but don't recall it ever coming up as one of their major pet peeves. As someone who actually has studied philology, I can tell you most of what you said was just wrong.

 

It's language police cunts like you that is watering down what "racism" even means. 

 

Man I hate fucks like you, so eager to present yourselves as the champions of linguistic morality when all you are doing is parroting some shit some liberal white upper class twit told you in your sociology class.

 

Fuck you.  Fuck you forever with your trivial cuntery.

Bravo Johnny!

And I totally agree, these hypocritical, arrogant and ignorant PC thought police need to be cast into some bottomless pit.  They typify, and are a big part of, the moral and intellectual rot so prevalent today.

Oh, but according to Cognac, we are going to have to rename North and South America, and Antarctica too, as all those names refer to a place in reference to someplace else --- and that, apparently, is not only racist and ethno-centric but outright evil (the fact that this pattern is very common in almost every language, not just English, is apparently beyond his self-righteous concern)  Why, I cannot tell you, but logic has very little to do with the collectivist mentality and its inevitable offspring, political correctness.

Why are you trying to equate the neutral and sensible word "Oriental" with the derogatory word "gook"?

And you defenders of PC here STILL have not addressed the matter that "Asia", which is a continent, consists of MUCH more than just the Orient, so by referring to "Asians" you are logically referring to not just Orientals but also Turks, and Arabs, and Indians, and many other inhabitants of the continent of Asia as well. 

Any response, or the usual crickets from the PC crowd?

My brother calls it reality.  He is a high wage earner, more educated than his wife, more likeable, and struggles to please her.  At our last family get together at my mother's house, he and my stepfather did the dishes after dinner, while "the girls" made small talk.  The guys also assisted my mother in making dinner.  At one point, my sister in law commented that someone we know is "just a paycheck" to his family.  She followed up with, "nothing wrong with that", with much laughter from her, my mom, and my sister.  UM....fuck that.  I'm the only guy who will butt heads with the women in my family over their pop culture bullshit perception of men.  That probably explains why I'm also frequently a target of "the girls".  If you have to surrender your dignity to keep the peace, there should be no peace.  Men who incessantly try to appease the women in their lives are fools.  Ever notice how they get less respect as a rule than the "asshole" type?  Ask me how I know.

good for you.  that's the dream right there.  My lady supported me for 8 months while I worked on a non-paying project. 

Granted, no one should have their potential squandered due to their gender, but housewives really had the better part of the deal.  1/3, at least, of feminist gripes were absolute horseshit.

I'm with you on that. I sat down with my wife early on in our marriage (22 years and counting) and asked her what was non-negotiable. She told me. Then I laid out was non-negotiable for me. We agreed to respect those items, discuss all other matters reasonably and to always have each others backs even with our children and especially with the in-laws LOL. My life is stress free.

Did the exact same thing. We only had one nonnegotiable. NO AFFAIRS. If,at any point, if one found someone they rather be with then we would divorce amicably and admit we weren't meant to be. We waited 7 years before having kids to make sure because kids in the game brings it to a whole new level. Funny thing, we really didn't need to make the line in the sand at all. When you entwine yourself in love honor and respect for another the necessity of rules fades and you intuitively respond to each other's needs.

Do you still get laid regularly?  Sex in and of itself does not make a relationship, but it is important.  I have so many married buddies that haven't had sex in years but won't go find it elswhere (which is admirable).  Why get married to never have sex again?  Why get married so someone can be your boss.  Stay single, do what you want and have sex just about whenever you want with someone new on a regular basis. I'm jaded from experience...if the right woman came alon I would much prefer an intimate (in more ways than just physical) loving and long term relationship...

Sex is absolutely essential in a marriage. It uber critical! Women don't generally get this but a man expresses his love and bonding through sex. Women express bonding through talking. So if you with hold sex you with hold the ability of a man to love and bond. I laugh at women who try to make their men into chatty girlfriends and use sex as a weapon. Take about shoot yourself in the head. And they have the gall to complain to me their men don't value them like my husband does me. You reap what you sew Sweetcakes.

Sex is great but without intimacy it is shallow. Intimate sex is vibrant, spiritual and awe inspiring. Find the right woman and experience a world unexpectedly transcendent. My husband jokes he can talk to me about a complicated subject on ZH over dinner and then experience sex with me like having a high class Call Girl. Perhaps my skill is simply being many different women at once.

I quickly turned off the tv permanently blotto when I saw the obvious denigrating portrayal of men especially whites. Not all of us women are so easily fooled. I stand in solidarity with men after witnessing the horrible injustices done to them daily. It disgusts me. You may see more women becoming enlightened soon. Healthcare, a predominantly woman dominated field, is in shambles. I know lay offs are coming very soon. I am not sure if I will survive and if I do, I will shoulder the work of my laid off colleagues ( 90% of clinical microbiologists are women). This may wake up a few. Hopefully their resultant anger is properly placed. Many have laid off husbands.

Miffed, as a microbiologist you obviously are not easily fooled.  Same can't be said for all too many of your SWPL sisters.

 

You say it's mainly White men who are portrayed as bumbling idiots?  Let me ask you, when have you seen a black depicted as such?  No, blacks in the MSM are always portrayed as smart and cool, and they're always doctors or scientists and engineers.  You know, just like in real life.

My wife is also a microbiologist.

I have always had great respect for this field as it one of the last in laboratory medicine to be replaced by the "blinky lights" instead of human decision (years of experience).

You know what I mean...

A few years ago she left the day to day crap and became a consultant to labs in third world countries (Saudi, Uganda, etc).

She has nothing more than a BS degree, but tons of experience and is a real grade A stickler for good quality and data.

Also consults for big pharma, but only those who are really doing something useful out there. There are a few...

She has paid the dues. Being called a "whore" by the local kids and having stones thrown at her (always carry a few to throw back and a smile when one of little perps gets run over by a bus).

Bottom line is she is making a good 6 figure income. Downside is the global travel and dealing with the nitwits (nothing changes, does it?).

But that is life and I do love her.

We have lots of fun together.

Your response hit me in a sad place. Five months ago I was recruited by a major laboratory instrumentation company to be a field rep for their next generation PCR lab equipment. My territory would have been western USA and Canada. This would have been my dream job. They wanted me for my experience but also because I have a very vivacious personality and can work very well with people. A combo critical for this job and not often both found in normally shy lab personnel. I could have gone eventually into technical sales which would have brought in the 6 figures. I turned it down. Mr Miffed was absolutely shocked and begged me to change my mind. He knew this had my name all over this. I explained the timing was wrong. Obama is gunning for the equipment manufacturers and healthcare is going to take a hit with lower reimbursements. Hospitals budgets are being slashed. I don't see much capital investment happening in the near future. When the hit comes I will be in a bad position and it would be unlikely I could return to my old job if laid off. The other thing was the extensive travel involved. My husband lives for me to be happy but I know he would be miserable if I wasn't at home in his bed at night. That figured heavily in my decision as well. But, if I were single, I would have taken it and had an adventure. So much of life is about choices and trying to have the least amount of guilt when making them. For me, only one choice was possible. But I am very happy your wife is experiencing the adventure and she is happy. May be in another life time I'll give it a shot. ;-)

No, silverserfer.  Not unless you equally refer to ALL Arabs and Israelis and Turks and Indians and Pakistanis and Armenians as "Asian", too.  But we both know that the REAL meaning of the PC use of the word "Asian" is "Oriental".  Which is not in ANY way a racist or bigoted term, so why obfuscate and confuse the issue and refuse to just call them what they are --- "Oriental"?

It is manifestly more logical and appropriate to call Orientals "Orientals" than to call me "white" (because I am not an albino), or a "Caucasian" when neither I nor any of my ancestors ever lived within a couple of thousand miles of the Caucasus Mountains.  But I am not hung up on the terms, and do not arrogantly and ignorantly demand that everyone else call me by some constantly-changing PC term in order to prove their PC credentials, which is what this whole "Asian/Oriental" thing is really all about.

FYI .. "oriental" is considered a racist term, since oriental is a dirivative of 'orient' to describe 'material' items from Asia.  Technically speaking, by US standards, calling someone oriental is calling them an 'object'.  So yeah, theres that.

Only by the PC thought police and by the brainwashed, mentally docile sheep who allow themselves to be led and bullied by them.

Sorry, but that is just flat out politically-correct redefinitionism and linguistic revisionism, and utter bullshit.

Where did you come up with this idiotic notion that "Oriental" somehow refers to ONLY material objects?  That is pure nonsense, and if you knew anything at all about the English language and its history, or linguistics in general, you would be embarrassed at having made such an absurd statement.  In fact, I can think of NO locative word which has ever referred to only material objects, and not also the people, from a given location.

Think about it: what is MORE logical, and sensible, and reasonable, than to call somebody by the place where they (or their ancestors) originate?

Is it "racist" or "ethno-centric" to call somebody from Europe a "European"?  Is it "racist" to refer to a "South American" or an "African"?  That is what you are suggesting.

By your 'logic', to call or refer to anyone by ANY national or ethnic lable is ipso facto "racist".  This stupifyingly mindless and hypocritical bending to PC is lunacy and irrational, and that is the best that I can say about it.

South African - African

Europe - European

Ameria - American

Asia - Oriental?

And I NEVER said that it ONLY refers to an object, but in general, to say 'oriental' is to describe a tangible object, not a person.

I think you are missing a link there buddy!  

You are a little pretentious, at best, but nice try.

 

 

- "Think about it: what is MORE logical, and sensible, and reasonable, than to call somebody by the place where they (or their ancestors) originate?"

Akak, the term "oriental" is also misused by many to only mean East Asians (particularly Chinese).

The Orient includes parts of Europe and Africa.

The book "Murder on the Oriental Express" was set in the Balkans and Istanbul is regarded as the most important oriental city. It is in Europe.

The mildly racist term "wog" is an abbreviation for "Western Oriental Gentlemen" which refers to the Egyptians (which is in Africa).
