Moderators, I object in the strongest terms to the suggestion that gay chickens can be 'treated' or 'cured'. This homophobic hate speech has no place on our forum. The Observer should be required to attend LGBTQ sensitivity training, to preventi further micro-aggressions against other Gallus gallus domesticus
who may wish to express their sexuality in diverse and wonderful ways.
Before setting your unintelligible demands "in the strongest terms" keep in mind who moderates here. Take me as an example. I'm a doddering senescent old geezer who still gets totally confused by "Transgenders Welcomed" on the door to what used to be the Mens at the Vancouver Public Library. Can I still go in? Are untransgendered unwelcome? I'm constantly in a fog of confusion. I just read a Wall Street Journal article that used the word 'cisgender'. Who the hell are they I asked myself. I checked Google and they were me.
No, never mind more outrage and demands. What you need isn't some shaming and blaming training for Observer where he comes out pretending to believe in a new order he can't even comprehend. You need a root and branch culling of the current moderators and their replacement by much more culturally attuned younger people who agonize throughout their day, to the point of paralysis, about whether they are sensitive and accommodating enough about issues that are completely beyond the understanding of the current batch of Neanderthals moderating Quatloos. You need to storm the ramparts!
Unfortunately we have control of the software. But our generation will pass and then a new set can take over just in time to be left behind by changing mores just like we currently are and who will be subject to criticisms as incomprehensible to them as your gibberish is to me. It's just the cycle of life.
Just a few things to keep in mind...
Betty escaped to Key West, if there is a better place on Earth to be something not from a Norman Rockwell painting, its someplace I've never been.
Yes, most of the moderators are a bit older, the one who actually knows how to keep the board up and running is much younger than me anyway, and is not who you would look to as being the warm, fuzzy one. She keeps the interns in a dungeon and just this week posted on my Facebook a picture of the assassin who is trying to kill me.
I try not to classify chickens as gay, straight or transgendered. In my world chickens are Extra Crispy, Original Recipe or trans-fat free.
