Wow, what a hateful string of posts.



I totally agree. I hate to see this kind of bile on the forum.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I don't like losing/not winning on technicalities.

In that case never make a bar bet. Especially if it seems impossible for the guy proposing the bet.

I probably just cost myself years of EZ money. Out of fairness you should give me $350.00(not three fiddy) for saving you tons of -EV.

The Bruce comment may have been a bit nasty. Personally when I heard about the sex change I was like WTF this has to be a joke. But I can't hate someone just for doing something especially if it has zero affect on me. Whatever floats their boat, different types of people are interesting.

But the comment... "bet the over if they are female or black" is that really a horrible comment? Can we get some data on that? He may be on to something.

I didn't think it was sexist or racists.

Is it not true that females and blacks tend to do certain things? Am I racists or sexist for believing that? Talk to any level headed female (if you can find one☺) and ask her if certain stereotypes that men have about women tend to be true.

I bet the over and got paid.....tip for next year any female or any black always bet the over.


I will admit this could have been written in good conscience but the phrasing "or any black" to refer to a person is offensive IMO. Just putting the word "person" in there would have made it fine. The word black as a descriptor is fine. Referring to a black person as "a black" is the offensive part.

Do I really have to explain this one?

Excluding the Bruce Jenner comment..

Is the black comment offensive to you, or do you just think it's offensive to black people? Are you black?

Is "a black" offensive but "a female" not offensive?

You were doing OK until you added that little parenthetical comment.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

I am a straight white cis male oppressor.

It does not offend me personally. All I will say is that I think it sounds offensive. And really, I don't care anymore.

Wishing death on anyone seems pretty offensive though, so I stand by my feelings on the Jenner comment.

I started ask about cis, then looked it up, I am so far behind the times...
I don't think it will help me to look up 'oppressor', so I will just move along now.......;-)
