If I had checked my PMs before I left, I probably would have been there.
Award, Marv? Cool!
What for? Best evil laugh? Wittiest putdown for gay single mum whales with tcrooked teeth and peglegs? International man of mystery? most improved dictator? man most likely to become John Howard's fluffer in the fading years?
Best Liberal campiagner I was very happy it was totally unexpected!!!

I like that the gay mum one is the only one you comment on...
Oh, but the gay single mums on the dole are easy to pick on
(please dont send that to crikey!)
Obese gay single mums who work as dodgy builders in between rorting the welfare system.
Those poor single gay mothers
You liberal scum!

Or the Black, Female, Gay, Communist, Buddhist, Dwarfed, singled mums
How do they feel?
I'm being oppressed by the matriarchy.
Hmmm... the calibre of student morals have slipped at UQ somewhat since I was there.
What a moral dilemma . Oh, the inhumanity
Hmm? and what do you mean by that Otter?
Read the last six posts before mine. I know you are only joking. But I question the appropriateness of such humour.
It's easy to joke about the minority when you are a white, heterosexual, middle class male. But in a public forum? Under a UQ banner no less.
Look at it and think how you might be perceived.
Of course, I might just be joking.
Humour may be the cure to all ills, Otter (notice I said 'may' )
Oh, and did you know that AIDs is finally funny now, so everyone can joke about it
1. Homosexuality can be funny (eg Seinfeld gay episode)
2. Being harrased/discriminated against for your sexuality is not funny.
3. I don't consider AIDS to be funny. Hmm, no immune system, every disease and bug just moving in and having a party. Whatta knee-slapper.
Otter, no need for a witch hunt!
We didn't say anything homophobic, or oofensive in my opinion.
Personally, I am not homophobic, and do not espouse that.
And here I was, thinking I had been quite diplomatic.
Marv, my whole point is that your opinion may not be as sensitive as others.
Interesting choice of verb on the end of that last point, by the way.
Glad you approve And also glad that we sorted that out!
I think that a distinction needs to be made between comments that are atright out hateful, which would be racist or homophobic etc, and those that are harmless and politically incorrect.
...and those which are passive aggressive.
Yeah AIDS is bad, my friend lost 3 uncles to the dreadful disease .
Bad yes... but still so easily avoided.
Obviously you guys didn't see that episode of South Park....
South Park? What's that?
