Well, hi people XD!
I know I ran away from Fun Forum ;-; I've been rly out of time XD When I have a few hours to do nothing, I gotta take care of my two babies: MMORPGs and Scans XD!
I didn't have time to see what's this Zone about, also XDDD! So I guess we just talk about all kinds of things here^^ To those that don't know me, hi! I'm Mariana Farfalla, joined MH 'cause it's the best place to be in contact with mangas and related works. I mean, when you're not from Japan XD! I'm still at MH, even without time, 'cause I rly like a lot of people here^^ I may not talk to them all the time, but many still makes me smile when I read what they say here and there. First I've met other brazilian people, thru the web or live, and some of them became rly good friends. Then I've met people from outside my country, and saw that they are rly fun and excited/ing people too! Ok, enough of talking... my eng still sucks XD
I have a question... Do you guys think that the word "gringo" is offensive? XD I've always been curious about that o.o
This is a continuation thread, the old thread is Here
ehm... go read Noblesse
Pourquoi ! Pourquoi !!!
True. Or for sports.Originally Posted by xi0
Anyone read Proletariat btw ?
Maybe you meant if we knew what it meant?
If one tries to say 'gringo' many times, very fast, it starts to sound like cockring at some point. So I don't think that the word 'gringo' is offensive.
Maybe it was offensive to homesteaders down in Texas, or people who live in border towns, but aside from it being somewhat simplistic, I don't find it offensive. Just like I don't find white racial terms offense either (aside from anti-Semitic ones), whether they're based on ethnicity (Kraut, Mick) or not (Honkey, Cracker). It's what's attached to the terms that is offensive, not the word itself.
