Stu Loves You, Baby

Posted by Richard Goodwin on 14:59, 14/2/2006 | , , ,
 
Risc PC (two slices)In a previous posting I ventured the opinion that Stu didn't love you very much because the UniPod deal ended on February 13th. Well, he's extended the offer for another month due to popular demand, and in a press release entitled U'n'I Forever! (U'n'I - it's you and I, and Uni - geddit?) publicly restates his love for y'all, no doubt in a manly, non-Brokeback-Mountain sort of way.

Anyway, this means that the offer - a fully enabled UniPod for 125, saving 14 on the usual price - is on for the South West Show this coming Saturday. Be there, or... order over the 'phone or something.

"publicly restates his love for y'all, no doubt in a manly, non-Brokeback-Mountain sort of way."

Although I realise this a joke, I do hate the suggestion that to be "manly" means not being gay. As for the example of Brokeback Mountain, it seems to me we were presented with two very manly individuals.

Funny, I actually saw the "non-Brokeback-Mountain sort of way" part being the not being gay part :)

Sigh. It wasn't my intent to cause offence, but I'm not exactly familiar with gay lingo. What would be the current PC way of saying "male, not gay"? I suppose "masculine" would give similar offence (as well as being too long for the context)?

As for the film, I'm a film buff, but not *that* much of a film buff. I'm more of a girls, guns and explosions man myself.

I must have missed the day when all heterosexuals decided that they wouldn't ever have anal sex.

Let's stop being deliberately and unecessarily offensive. Please.

I think you're reaping what you sowed; I suggest you stop digging.

And FYI, I for one am quite happy with tab A going in to slot B in the usual straight forward way. Slot C just don't smell right.

I can't believe the way that this thread has degenerated. FWIW I agree with fylfot about the offensive comments, although I probably wouldn't have bothered raising the original point.

Exactly. This is a technology website, not somewhere for shoehorning in Issues.

It is perfectly legitimate to question my judgement about my first posting, but to accuse me of being responsible for the offensive comments by yourself and fwbbler is ridiculous. I certainly didn't expect them. If I had, I wouldn't have responded in the first place.

This is a technology website, not somewhere for shoehorning in issues.

So why did you decide to provoke further discussion by presenting us with an account of what you consider acceptable forms of sex?

As for 'shoehorning', I simply have not. If you take the anti-PC approach - which in your case seems to mean exploiting your right to offend unecessarily - then expect people to respond if they are offended.
