My brain hurts.
Me too, Megan, me too.
Sigh. I'm waiting for the predictable outrage about youth slang. No doubt you deds and damas will horn oozhassny chepooka about the young lewdies govoreeting in a way they don't pony til I get an ache in me gulliver, but just remember, your parents messled you govoreeted strangely too.
Dan's got a better lower-back tattoo, doesn't he?
I could give a rat's ass how she talks; what amuses me is the lack of outrage over the advice of asking around town to see how much a girl screw in order to determine her character.
Unlike so many hip hop acts, Khia is for real, with criminal record and all. For me, knowing this makes her new advice column even better.
I wonder if she thinks all women derive no pleasure from giving head? That's how you know the real sex columnists. Ya know, the ones who know the facts.
Gitai - straight from Clockwork Orange, no?
@9 Yeah. I had to look a bunch up. It was between that and Polari, and since all the Polari vocab I could find was more appropriate for dishing about boys, I went with Nadsat.
"Now you already knnow if your dealing with a lady or a tramp so a blood test is needed ASAP before you do any claiming."
Pretty sure it's tramp.
I welcome a little competition for Dan. There are dozens of regular advice columnists; surely there's room for more than one sex advice columnist. More people talking honestly about sex can only be a good thing, right? Except of course it would help if they actually gave good understandable advice.
I don't think Dan has a whole lot to worry about.
PS: I don't really care about the slang. If that's her audience, and they're into it, that's fine. But her advice, even in the Queen's English, is still crap.
For your entertainment:
Dan's voter fraud conviction looks pretty wussy by comparison.
Call the Cops When U See Khia
Grab Yo Man When U See Khia ...
you can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth
Now we are back to this shit?
Come on guys, seriously. Why is it so freaking important to make fun and ridicule black culture. This is just more typical seattle namby pamby passive aggression.
Look, sub-conscious racism is so pervasive in our society, why is it that the "enlightened" writers for the stranger don't accept it? It isn't rocket science. Until we quit making fun at people and cultures that are different from ourselves, we will never reach full equalty.
I don't like hip hop anymore than the rest of you, but we don't need to make black people, how they talk, write, what they listen too, etc. the but of jokes. It isn't funny and just perpetuates poverty and racism and hate.
So ecce, you're saying they're only making fun of it because she's black? Yeah, "they're" the racists.
PdxRitchie - don't be an ass. If you are going to respond to an actual comment, do so with an actual comment. Not just a stupid one liner.
What exactly would be your answer to the question? Anyone? In typical Seattle/Stranger fashion I hear allot of ridicule and what not to do, but nothing constructive.
If it was me I'd do the same damn thing. Be responsible, get it tested afterwards. The streets don't lie stuff is crazy though.
Who needs Docta Roof whens you got dis shiz! Holla!
what i find interesting is that "they" wrote this out in black slang (i'm not buying that the original letter is for real) - i'd understand if it was purported to be a "transcript". regardless, this is the exact sort of thing mark twain did in huckleberry finn, which, i believe, is now frowned upon.
There is no point in responding to e**e's hypocritical bullshit. He's shown more racism than any person here on slog. From making fun of starving black children to blatantly mocking African culture. He does this all while claiming/defending that he is not racist, only to turn around and say the same shit is racist (when it isn't coming out of his mouth).
I'd be tempted to like her, especially with that photo (yowza!), but - particularly in the mugshots - she reminds me of my sister. My sister is pure evil. A smiling, dead-eyed sociopath. Yuck.
Uh...guys? Advising a guy to go asking around about a woman to determine if she's a "nasty whore" is stupid. And stupid is stupid. Doesn't matter if it comes out of a black mouth or a white mouth. Are you saying stupidity is a part of black culture? Because THAT would actually be, well...racist.
Having said that, I do think the rest of her advice is solid.
as a black man who speaks good english and has a fairly large dick, i hate this shit. whites call their trash "white trash." i call these asses "black trash."
Entertaining, and worth reading if the letters are varied and not the same old "I just knocked some bitch up" every time.
And some of you need to stop with the "don't ask around about her" stuff. You've got to be kidding me. You hook up with someone, things get weird and you DON'T ask around to find out if anybody in your circle/school/dorm/frat/sorority/neighborhood/whatever has had the same experience/problems with the person?
There is a word for #24: Self hating black man. You won't stand up for the brothers and sisters that are getting smacked down by cowardly little children with anus obsession's, like Mr. Poe. That tells me alot.
And Poe, you started the name calling, so here ya go. You just think that you should be able to insult every ethnic stereotype that there is because you think you are witty. I encourage you to go down to Ranier Valley and spread some of your wit to the folks down there and see how fast it takes to get a cap popped in your ass. You may think twice about being a KKK, cross burning, gay bashing, hood wearing, POS. Just because you call yourself a "Liberal" don't mean shit. I means that like many liberals, your just as much a bigot but completely incapable of seeing it in yourself. There is a reason that the Democrats are the party of slavery. You are part of that.
For once in you life, leave the blacks alone. I suspect that you are also a minority, so I am not sure why you are so nasty. I would encourage you to seek out some sort of help - sensetivity training or something.
ecce, you'd be a more convincing troll if you showed at least the most superficial sort of consistency in your posting.
I am completely consistant. Just because you can't understand the points I make doesn't make them less valid.
In fact, just because you are ignorant, you shouldn't even be posting.
Unless "knnow" and "your" (instead of "you're") are SLANG, I feel completely fine criticizing this for looking idiotic. This was published in an actual magazine? Or is it just online? Because we all know that online stuff doesn't count as reality in any case.
I just in case no one is reading this still, I bet she cashed her welfare check to buy that outfit...(stranger humour)
E**e, everything you just said is worthless, because you cannot back up a single sentence. At all.
The most amazing thing about you is your ability to completely ignore reality and make everything up to side with your rebuttal. And by amazing, I mean it's amazing that you're such a fucking moron.
"You may think twice about being a KKK, cross burning, gay bashing, hood wearing, POS."
Oh my God, where do you come up with this shit?
As for thinking twice about anything, I would not think twice about kicking your ass.
Is that a threat 'poe'?
Ryan - don't be an idiot. It's ecce and I don't have to put much thought into responding to him. Anyways, it was a pretty spot on response, I don't know what your problem is. Btw, it was a two-liner.
