By the way, I have no idea what a "Lady Gaga" is or what it does, I just saw the picture in a newspaper. I assume she's a singer or entertainer of some kind. Don't enlighten me - I'm sure I'm happier not knowing.
How dare you insult the name of noble Blitzwing by comparing him that skanky hermaphrodite stripper Stefani Germanotta!
She is neither a stripper nor is she a Hermaphrodite, also why would that be a negative anyway?
You disapprove of his use of stripper/hermaphrodite as a pejorative term?
Yes, yes I do.
Hermaphrodites can't do anything for the way they are and they suffer enough as is.
I also disprove of hatred against strippers, it's bad enough that they have to do that for a living, it's horrible and disgusting to treat them badly for it.
It was a joke, a humorous barb. It's not for me to say whether it was in poor taste - but I can't help feel you're calling him out on it just to start (and win) an argument.
Yes it was a joke, after all Blitzwing is far from noble, and I would have been OK with it weren't it for the inclusion of stripper and hermaphrodite as if those where facts about her.
Both are untrue and have only been included to "devalue" her.
Also, since when is pointing out falsehoods considered "starting an argument to win it"?
Just let it slide, man. People say things. Sometimes those things are in poor taste, sometimes said by accident. No point turning a joke into an argument.
Peace, my friends.
No, sorry that's not how we do things here. Jokes are fine and dandy, but we don't tolerate hate-speech against minorities.
I also never stated that it was indeed the case, hence my question, although I know full well that the only sources where you find Lady Gaga associated with those two terms are propaganda sites and publications run by close minded hate-mongers.
Had I villainised him from the start I wouldn't have asked a question, but given him a warning instead.
