Re: Spastic Squirrel
... I was annoyed at the shirt before, because it was the usual "RamyB submitted something he put no effort into, why can't someone who wins as consistently as he does actually put in some time to take art lessons and not make his designs have such horrible anatomy/perspective?" But, I wasn't going to comment, since I've said that a million times already. The previous submission, while something I'd never wear, didn't really warrant comment. I'm trying to get over my utter loathing of RamyB, because while he's repeatedly offensive in his attitude, he never really went over the line. Until now, at least.
But, this one goes above and beyond the norm. I can't believe RamyB thinks he can get away with mocking the disabled just because he's RamyB =\ I don't personally know anyone who has Cerebral Palsy, but this is really, really offensive.
What were his submissions for the other letters? "Mong Mongoose" for M? "link Fox" for F? "Pardon me, I'm a racist dork. Chihuahua" for C? "balderee Rabbit" for R? "Hey look, ma, I'm a racist! Narwhal" for N? (Note how Woot filters all of those other slurs except for Mong. I'm sure you can still guess what they were.)
I'm not someone who insists on everything being "PC," but this is pretty bad. Given how many video games and TV-shows marketed to kids had to be given adult ratings over this one word, and the massive scandal when Tiger Woods said it during a game in the UK, I'm just really surprised RamyB thinks he can get away with this.
Yeah, thanks for justifying my dislike of you, RamyB, just when I was trying to stop obsessing over your repeatedly offensive behavior
(EDIT: filtered words hard-filtered. Sorry if I offended anyone who hit the "reply" button; I didn't realize that lifted the filter)
