Come on you're not that dense. I'm talking about Imran says something than aussie broad clips his nuts pretty good then Imran gets butthurt all the while Lazaro and aussie broad laugh their asses off further contributing to the cracking up of teh shaolin
Plus young men anywhere don't take any kind of jokes toward them in jest as theyre hot headed and defensive of their egos, we don't communicate well, mostly and a US-UK style humour thing which gets lost in translation. Americans don't really get the non-malicious, self depreciating humour, stirring and banter, they do understand jokes about other people and subjects which they arent concerning them.
Hence the hostility sometimes when one side doesnt get the joke.
So, basically I always have to tread, very, very softly to avoid treading on the proverbial balls and mostly I do. Sometimes I dont but hell, I'm not 'perfect;, I make mistakes and theres plenty of things that are said here on TA of a misogynistic nature I really don't find humourous at all so it's not like I exactly feel very comfortable here about 50% of the time and theres been plenty of times in the last 6 years I've been here I felt threatened enough by people in PM's or email to leave altogether.
I do understand what he's going through as I've been through it all in one form or another at some point, I tried to help and was unable to as our personalities clash so badly so I just try to keep it to civilised, light hearted banter.
So sorry for any unintentional hurt
and I really need to get going...
