Seems like a double standard.....
Just a note. That post was moderated, and we do try to keep a complimentary set of rules. So no, it's NOT okay for those kinds of comments to be posted, and I would think that people would know that and give it a bit of time. Yes, it took a while, but it was removed.

For one thing, the "whys" are that this board has three mods and the FA/FFA board has two. It can make a difference. I can't speak further for that side of the street, but I try to do my best to keep the rules on my side of the street, as do we all. It was tempting to go over and remove it myself at the time, but it's specifically not my board to moderate, and it would be great if they had another mod there to help. I think that to treat it as if it was purposely tolerated for days or something is a bit dramatic.

My complaint is, hotels are expensive in major cities. There's a recession going on, and airfares are dirt cheap, but I can't find a hotel deal at all. Waaaa!

YES! Even the decent "cheap" hotels are running near, if not over, $100 a night, it's ridiculous!

Dramatic or no....my initial frustration came because it was there awhile after I reported it....and the mod said that he didn't know what I was referring to when I contacted him about it. He later let me know that it was gone and I thanked him.

Expecting fair treatment and openly sharing a problem isn't dramatic, IMO.

Often it's just a matter of time, ability to handle the problem right at the moment, not seeing it, whatever. I understand that some feel that it wasn't removed soon enough, and had I been able to do it myself, I would have, but it's specifically not my board to moderate. We've seen many posts that communicate that community members want us to respond right away to things, and that's not always possible. Sometimes things will sit for a little while before being removed.

I would hope you don't actually think that us moderators sanction misognyistic posts towards women and rush in to moderate misandrynistic comments towards men, as your post seems to read -- as if we "allow" one group to do things that another group isn't allowed to do -- like it's sanctioned, or something. That idea is, I admit, irritating, and when I posted to you, I was irritated and so to me, your words did read as being dramatic.

I feel a great frustration sometimes that I see so many openly bashing, in a generalized fashion, "women of the board" as being mean, or needing to shut up, etc. when some of the menfolk are not walks in the parks and quite fallible themselves. I do sometimes not log on for a day or two in an attempt to alleviate my own frustrations.

Since I am not always aware of "behind the scenes", I cannot guess when or if something will be taken care of. I also realize that the mods are volunteers who are diligent in a big place so I didn't mean to cause any strife or bad feelings. I will remember to be more patient if there is a next time.

Thank you, Greenie, for understanding. I'm totally aware of how opaque the curtain is, and how little community members can see when it comes to admin stuff. It's partly why I and others have tried to explain certain things at times, in order to create understanding, because no one likes to be moderated. Unfortunately, I feel pretty certain there will be a next time. I think the lag time is probably worse during the Summer, as more of us are busy with vacations, activities, etc. Just know that if a clear violation is reported it won't be ignored. It may take a bit of time, but it won't be ignored. I know it might seem like it is from your, and others', perspective, but it's not.

BTW, frankly, I hate that shit, too.

Where are you trying to find a hotel at? I know Indianapolis had one for $35 this week. Orlando had one for under $30. I think you need to check out kayak.com

Why why why why why why do guys think it's okay to just shout out aggressive sexual coments to women? Why? I'm walking down the street the other day and some guy walked past with two buddies, like freestyling out loud (which is annoying to me too) I wasn't really paying all that much attention to him until I heard the words "fat pussy" (skeeves me out just to type it) as I walked by. It took a moment for me to register it, and once I did he was already a few yards away, and I'm like, What the fuck?!? Gross. Fuckin-A man. Just why? And why, two days later am I still thinking about it?!? I would like to walk down the streets of Manhattan without having to hear that kind of crap from random guys on a semi-regular basis. And I know this probably sounds bad, but it's times like that I'm glad I'm not thin cause I suspect I'd get those kinds of comments way more often and I don't think I could deal with that kind of attention all the time. I don't know how thin women do it.

It's also the fact that you're a stranger. The odds are against your paths crossing paths again anytime soon. Thus, there is an odds sense on anonymity to it. Assholes will say nastiness to a stranger, that they would not dare say to someone they knew they might run into again.

Not to mention, the troglodytes who do such are counting on any of the following:
  • The woman not hearing/realizing it was directed at her and they get away with it all together,
  • Knowing they were heard, but hoping the woman would be to embarrassed to retort
  • Or as in your case, by the time it registered the slur was directed at you, you were out of range to react and/or it just wasn't worth the energy to waste on them.

What's really fucked-up about the whole situation is that they walk away from this with a feeling of smugness. But the insulted female is left holding on to the hurt/anger/frustration of the incident.

Having once been much smaller (though never thin) and speaking with my thin friends who go through the nonsense on a regular basis, I can say it's not any easier. Skin thickening and immediate dismissal of such are just learned at an earlier age.

This my not go here. I don't know if its exactly a bbw complaint...may be just a personal one.

I can't stand how some people can not accept the consequences of their actions. They say whatever and do anything they want. Then try to rationalize an action or phrase that is hurtful by saying the other person caused it. They constantly blame other people for their actions.

I am just so aggravated..Why do people have to stare so hard? I mean seriously I am not the only BBW on this planet and I know they have seen loads others..Why do they act like they have never seen one before...I promise you if I was not such a nice person I would be cussing out people right and left..Ignorant backwoods rednecks!!

Stare back. I've even stopped what I was doing to stare back. Eventually they stop staring.
