    YouTube - Vance Gilbert "Old White Men"

    If you think about it, white men are the most discriminated group in America.

    Used to be we respected our elders. After all, they built this country. Now they're the butt of comedian's jokes. Say the wrong thing and you get called every name in the book. If you believe in Global Warming, or think that higher gas prices is a good thing, you get a pass. However, if you believe in God, believe in smaller government, and see the wrong that is happening in Washington and say something about it you're a target.

    I was wondering if a derogatory name exists out there that is out of bounds for balding middle-aged conservative males. I don't think one exists.

    I think the left has turned one of the bed-rocks of this country into a pariah. Just saying that I'm sure will draw accusations of racism. We'll see.

    When a formerly-privileged group loses its privileged position and has to take its place as an equal along with those that were once looked down upon, it's perhaps natural for members of that group to feel put upon.

    It's still irrational, though.

    Is this one of those "real men don't" questions? OK..Real men don't whine. Bitch ass punks whine..then bite the pillow.

    A fully grown adult white man is supposed to be able to control himself. That includes the ability to choose his battles wisely. If you feel threatened when someone calls you a "name" you are required to turn in your man card immediately.

    LOL, the wife has called me every name in the book, plus a few she invented just for me. Sometimes you gotta consider the source - she earned the right and I mighta messed up once or twice!

    How about "Fighting Irish"?

    OH wait, Irish people like being called tough and combative, don't they?

    But the Sioux dislike that title. You know, the "Fighting Sioux".

    I guess it is based on the perspective of the group, that is if something is considered an insult or not.

    So, if someone calls you a slut....

    Or is this a 'only applies to conservatives' thing?
