    Hmmm... the calibre of student morals have slipped at UQ somewhat since I was there.

    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 :D

    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. :p

    Glad you approve :D 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.

    Okiday? ;)
