Thank god - someone with some common sense

I missed the earlier posts, is she concerned regarding the word 'black'?

pointydog Sun 24-Jun-07 22:37:13

oh no. This is getting pretty awful now.

And the unfortunate end of Ginger

I'm serious, why was she concerned about reading Black Beauty? I'm intrigued ...

Read the OP. Think she is being ironic

But this is just yet another thread which could cause offence.

MamaMaiasaura Sun 24-Jun-07 22:47:25

OMG you are right... Burn the books! Can we ban Free Willy for the sexual connations too?

AnnaSewell Sun 24-Jun-07 22:48:39

it's your choice to be offended pointy...

pointydog Sun 24-Jun-07 22:50:38

I don't think people have much 'choice' about whether they find something offensive or not. You are just goading people now. I'm off.

Saturn74 Sun 24-Jun-07 22:51:43

I agree with you, pointy.

If I was being ironic, I would say that the original poster (and not having seen it) is:
(a) A horse-ophobe who does not like stories about horses
(b) A beauty-ophobe who does not like stories about physical image
(c) A black-ophobe who does not like stories containing the word black
(d) A brilliant-story-ophobe who doesn't like good stories.

If the original poster had a more significant point to make, I apologise in advance for my irony.
