Gramma I believe you're encroaching on my Inappropriate Police duties! I hope Doumak does realize that you are bang on in comparing it to going out in black face and the like. I'd love to just chalk this all up to dumb ignorance and hope he can, for his sake, grow as a human being from this. If you disagree, please inform us what was so funny about the costume and your actions. Perhaps saying this shit aloud will bring some needed self realization. This is not a good way to be my man.
You're one of those children that likes to drink 4Loko and yell at people in the streets and wake up in gutters, huh. Banging "randoms" and texting your buddies about how you accidentally ended up with a fat chick again?
i can't believe you all would rush to judge like that. i spent a lot of time on these boards before last sasquatch. wasted my time throwing together the spreadshit.
You're right, I really shouldn't rush to judge a guy who has been registered at a message board for more than a year and who knows how to make a spreadsheet. Not even if I'm basing it on his drunken, insensitive behavior. Documented in photographs no less.

Thing is Doumak, there is nothing to judge, you clearly dressed up like a disabled person (one who also tragically died due to his paralysis complications) and thought it was funny. You then thought is was so sweet that you unabashedly threw them up on a post board. I am commenting on that. That is offensive and inappropriate. Ask your self this, would I dress like that at he Reeves' house or any other person's house (who doesn't know you) with a family member in a wheel chair. I hope you would answer no. This is the running problem with many young males, you try to justify that you are a good person and really actually totally love and respect disabled people (insert any other minority here, such as was the case in that newjersey post with all the "gay" comments) and that it was all just a joke. If you truly do love these people you are "joking on", then don't add to the already tidal waves of discrimination that rain down on a daily basis. I do believe that you are not pointing and laughing every time you see a man in a wheel chair and I do believe that jersey doesn't hate gay people (sorry jersey for bring you back in but I need a comparison ), but adding to the hate/discrimination just once and a while (even as a joke) does way more damage than doing the opposite. The opposite is much harder, offending is easy and appeals to the lowest common denominator of humanity, which is fear. Concentrate on doing the good work you say you do, and the next time you wanna have a joke at some other minority group's expense, ask if you would say it to their face or family. If the answer is no, then good chance it was some easy cheap piece of shit attempt at humor better not said.
& to gramma, i'd rather be a little distasteful on one day than be blatantly rude every day. i know who i am and who i'm not. all i know about you is that you went well out of your way to make up a lot of information just to put someone down, and i find that kind of ridiculous. but hey, who am i to judge that lifestyle.
"I'd rather make fun of disabled people than condescend to a bunch of chowderheads on a message board."
If you were paying attention, you'd know I'm not 'blatantly rude' to anyone unless they're a jackass. Or unless they like a band I don't like.
And I swear I didn't go out of my way, it comes naturally to me.
