so seriously as to spend time making/updating something like that, deeply depressing
so I assume it's not one of the regular posters, as they're (correctly) not big on making too much of woman-on-woman scrapping. assume the person doing this had no idea she wasn't male.
and we should just delete everything before 2014
+ fihiki I think
WHO DON'T EVEN POST ANY MORE
All the women in that feed have at some point been called out for appeasing sexism on here.
I seem okay, apparently.
just a bunch of these followed me and I assumed they were the existing DiS Quotes
I blocked them
Pretty conclusive and scientific study of DiS tbf tbh
from two different sentences to give it a new meaning.
Nice. Go fuck yourself whoever did that.
report the account as abusive
I'd also like whoever it is on here to say who there are so I know who the prick is.
which are fairly batshit:
Verbal - This is Twitter. I am not going to bother "quoting fully" it is unnecessary, especially when I specify that I haven't done that.

Yes, I am aware that you were quoting someone else's use of the word 'tr***y', but you still said it. Sorry for any misunderstanding[PART 2]

Sorry if you're offended , NickDS. But in 2011 you did still use the words "nuts" to describe "insecure" women in make up [PART 1]
Whoever's running it is clearly desperate to have the boards wiped. Wonder what terrible slurs they've used in the past they they're afraid of?
seriously go fuck yourself massively esp if you're too cowardly to relveal yourself on here.
and not theo
I can't see it.
but then I didn't actually call them batshit and NickDS didn't actually say those things.
So by their own rules they're actually calling a me a cunt and they're probably libelling several celebrities. It's pretty out of hand now. I should probably report them to the police.
posting and response style as YIATTY. I'm guessing her for now, stick an e-fiver on it.
also lol @ 'this is twitter'. context is king!
that she quoted in the other thread.
You could still apologise, you know. It would make me happier, and feel the world was a slight better place, and it would only be a very small blow to your pride.
Not me, you guys, not my style. I did tell you I'd rather you didn't get all Lord of the Flies with each other. I knew I'd get tarred as a crazy bitch who spoils all the internet fun for speaking up, but I'd rather be the crazy bitch who was able to advocate for herself than a passive object who things happen to.
I, like most people on here, never thought it was you.
what the heck? can you not see the post she's replying to?
verbal guessed it was her, presumably based on her post sean emailed her to ask if she'd done it. that's more than enough reason to deny doing it.
nothing self-important about it whatsoever.
When I replied.
Fidel is clearly piggy
(I want a carambar joke too, please)
Now THAT is odd.
and be aloof than join in a discussion and let everyone know you're just as silly as everyone else. Tactic as old as the internet. *gazes into middle-distance*
trying to expunge his offensive use of the word "hysterical".
Whether it's because of people leaving, or just geowing up, I think it illustrates how far DiS has come in the ten years or so since it started.
We're not perfect yet, but the movement is in the right direction.
this post is probably going to be on there next.
you never know who's going to quote you out of context in 2022.
(no way they'll misquote that)
people are far more conscious of their language and verbiage they use, even if mockingly, look at the last two years. it's a sea change.
so bringing things up that happened seven years ago in some cases, and not quoting fully, is a bit rum.
Don't let him win be nice
he seemed like such a cheery guy
you guys totally set yourself up for it. But we all know you're still gonna complain when it happens.
partially because i'm jesus reborn, partly because you just want more replies from me don't you, you cheeky little so and so.
lets just all stop posting (in this thread). Even i'm getting v bored of these threads
you have been trolled by.....
THE SOCIO-POLITICAL / FEMINIST BULLY CREW
(just realised gabrielle rose reuploaded this image.... might sue her or write a comment is free article about neoliberal feminism and copyright law)
this is so weird
Verbal | 9 Sep '14, 11:20 | ^ This | Reply
surprised anyone on here ever used that word. especially lately.
I think this is a useful mirror up to the board, actually. can't imagine it feels nice to have a quote of yourself saying [an offensive word] shorn of context.
I mean, I don't imagine it'd be quoted/stripped of context if the context did absolve the usage, e.g. "the word 'tranny' is offensive".
i've shown some fairly recent threads to my friend who is trans and their reaction was just like wow i couldn't post on there. its got better but its still quite sad to think people are still using words like that sometimes with no consequences.
"Hey, DD, have you got any inflammatory transgender insults on the various forums you use"?
"Yeah, I'll have to trawl multiple years worth of threads but I'm sure I could come up with a dozen uses of the word 'tranny'"
"Sweet, let me chomp down on that lovely juicy rage"
that was a bit unneccessary and pointless, sorry. Still think the whole thing (as in the moral crisi of the forum) is insane though.
and all your mates, so these issues mean nothing to me. I'm too busy working to be able to eat and pay the rent to sit debating endlessly the finer points of language and etymology.
"oh, guess what, someone said "tranny" on this broken niche internet discussion board full of office workers wasting time that I frequent. here would you like to see?"
"er ok then"
I just dont care. But going after members of this forum to prove how right on you are is the perfect example of 'low hanging fruit'.
invent a conversation that you think other people might have had, then criticise those people for having that imaginary conversation.
you've totally nailed her there guys, there's no way she's coming back from this.
(also it's unbelievable that in a thread pretty obviously about transphobia, people repeatedly manage to make it about their feeeeeeeelings, instead of y'know either discussing transphobia or not discussing anything at all like i suggested)
it's times like this when it becomes pretty obvious you're one of those people whose 'right on' persona is pretty much all for show. Maybe you should take a step back and realise you've actually gone and criticised someone for relaying, however briefly, a trans person's experience and perception of a trans issue in a thread loosely about transphobia?
I'll do that if you apologise for throwing ableist language around?
just looked it up and apparently it's a disused term in psychology and i can see how that would be offensive, so sorry for that.
p much any term denoting stupidity was used by eugenicists at some point: imbecile, moron, idiot, etc
let's both ignore that a user who is worse than Clarkson and Hitler combined has now started defending you.
much as it disgusts me to
the conversation wasn't just about the use of the word "t****y" and it involved someone we both knew. how we came to be talking about how safe my friend would feel on dis isn't really any of your business.
i shouldnt have mentioned that i knew for a fact that at least one trans person has been put off posting on dis because of things we say on here. is that not relevant to you?
you guys certainly don't need to know the contents of a private conversation i had with my friend to appreciate this.
although in most cases I'd say it's pretty clear the comments come from a lack of information rather than being meant in a particularly malevolent fashion.
It doesn't necessarily make it better but I think it's quite clear the situation has improved and iirc, there was a trans person who posted on the boards for awhile.
that was a weird day huh
they care not for the internet.
Probably because it's not really spoken about much in mainstream media still. I remember someone called in to The Savage Lovecast and used the word recently, and they were unsure if it was politically correct. Certainly, six or seven years ago I don't think it was widely acknowledged as being an unacceptable term in mainstream media.
If someone uses the word, probably best to advise them it can be offensive, and give them the opportunity to amend their language in future. Rather than posting things online from years ago to humiliate people.
Mainly because it's supposed to be short for transvestite not transgender, so in my head its use is solely to refer to Widow Twanky style goings on in panto.
Not that it's a word I can imagine using because I rarely see middle-aged men slapping ridiculous 1700s style make up on in order to pretend to be ugly middle-aged women.
Anyway, I'll be mindful in future, obviously.
Trans people as sex objects, as opposed to actual individuals
I mean I should point out that unless you're talking directly to a mate, it's obviously a term you'd use to call someone out for looking ridiculous, so it's hardly a nice word. It's just not one I'd considered having a 'trigger warning' sort of aspect for trans people.
surely someone could use it without that connotation because they are unaware that other sections of society trawl the net for niche pron?
whatever is the world coming to?
what, say p-ki* is to Asian people - i.e. used as a derogatory blanket word. That said, I think it's a word that many of us grown up using: when I was looking for a Spaced quote the other week, I found Tim from Spaced calling someone else a "fat tr-nny"*. (I know Simon Pegg doesn't speak for our generation but the vernacular of the Spaced characters is probably pretty similar to ours).
Doesn't mean we can't be mindful in future. Just shows how things have changed even in the last 10-15 years.
* censored in case someone goes round searching for the terms and misquotes me.
I meant specifically what threads did DD show to her friend who is trans.
saying something, which in hindsight was pretty transphobic. (This must have been four or five years ago). I apologised I think? If not, then I apologise now.
So hopefully DiS is becoming a better place.
but as said above, things are changing in general in terms of those words and our language. I don't understand the need to constantly dredge through all the catalogued horrors and misused, misquoted or ironic/sarcastic uses of bad words on here. It doesn't achieve anything.
i mean i'll openly admit that in the past i've used racial slurs as if they're 'not offensive' and homophobic language and probably acted out on a lot of internalized misogyny too. i've felt really guilty about that for ages but ultimately i think it's useful to remember how pervasive this stuff is and that it's not like an indictment on individual people. we're all in this together lbc.
that would probably work a lot better if whoever's behind the Twitter account wasn't attributing each quote to a username, many of which are still active. Because it's going to be hard for the people quoted to see it as anything other than a personal indictment. I think it's definitely intended that way.
but the people being identified kinda just need to accept it's stuff they've said. i do get that it can be quite unpleasant to get into trouble for stuff but as i said, we need to accept that it's stuff we have said and get over ourselves.
a lot feel they have changed and improved their outlooks and feel that having something they said in their past brought up years later out of context to paint them as the same person now, is unfair, which is understandable - like when you called people g*ylords at school for example - difference being there is no link to that for time immemorial.
fwiw I think people could be more gracious and apologetic regarding all this and instead focus on making it clear that they aren't happy they posted it, rather than that they aren't happy it has been dredged up.*
*this is also aside from the many people who have also been misquoted or wrongly attributed posts which is another issue entirely.
'fwiw I think people could be more gracious and apologetic regarding all this and instead focus on making it clear that they aren't happy they posted it, rather than that they aren't happy it has been dredged up.'
it wasn't really me
Can everyone get over to my lunch thread? I'm not sure about my decision. (much more important)

COME AT ME
'also a term of (probably homosexual) abuse'
you read the music board
there's so many crybabies up in here
"DD and GB are taking muh freedumbs!"
"anything you have ever written in digital ink has IMPACTED PEOPLE'S LIVES you monster!"
the bullying of brusma on this site is the most disgusting thing.
Also I assume whoever did this just wrote a quick bot to trawl the boards archive looking for a set of words and then post an extract around the word on twitter with a link.
Doubt anyone would do it manually
masturbating 40 times in day. I think those are the ones Sean gets the most clicks from. Then delete the rest(Maybe keep the AQOS ones as an example of DiS at its most glorious).
pretty shit hot investigative journalism going on as well, eg https://twitter.com/DiS_quotestoday/status/509298342107811840
jordo's in a world of trouble
I'm tempted to @ him into a reply to it and see what happens...
and divide into different categories of offensive words?
they had a whole thread on it regarding its use in music iirc.
the perfect mixture of excitement and jingoism.
I'm on there from when I was 16 saying "I hate women". Was gonna write something about being a (even more) dumb shit at that age then looked at the post. Its the first post in a thread about a 'weird russia' story on the bbc. Can't even make sense of it and I wrote it.
Also, been on here nearly 10 years, kill me now.
Miss all the good stuff
is the number of bigoted people who've been put off from posting on DiS over the years by the fear of becoming outcasts when they shared their offensive opinions.
was actually me:
just spreading the offence around, and thus offensive in itself? idk
apart from Hatfood.
the little shit.
hand-wringing, soul-searching and bed-wettery.
to delete all the posts/threads this shitty account links to. Hmm.
i think you should do it but after you've done it i'll be complaining about how you did
just say you think they're wrong posts don't bother deleting them thts a cowards move
My point is that I still don't get why this person / others / etc want to bring up these old posts. Do they want apologies from users, many of whom don't post any more? If they want to challenge the posts then it'd be better to do it on here. Or, do they want them deleted?
If it is mainly to say LOOK AT HOW AWFUL THE DiS SOCIAL BOARD IS then I think it's a highly inaccurate snapshot.
its probably the last one about it being awful? some people who have said they find there are things that are bad have some really big reasons for thinking it.
I think i can remember two people saying something along the lines of either; "i've shown the site to other people who don't think its a nice place" or "i know people who would find it a not nice place"
something like that.
I mean if people think theres problems theres probably problems. I wouldn't be annoyed with people saying theres something wrong with something and want it to not be bad. and i guess tweeting lots of things people have said is to show that?
I think some of those tweets are from things said this year aren't they?
guess if anyones been misquoted that'll annoy them. except the mouusee/verbal one thats good
then taking a few out of context quotes from over several years isn't going to help anything.
Why not show positive things, that it is a great community with lots of awesome people who provide support, laughs and have met new friends and got to know each other in real life.
and fund a DiS lifestyle video.
are awful and should have been dealt with at the time. I am willing to deal with the offending posts / threads, now, too, if the Twitter person wants them gone. (Or, if anyone else wants them gone too?) There is obvs a larger picture about how the community at large behaves wrt the issues discussed but as we've said a million times, the boards are getting far better at this.
Do you think it's a good snapshot of the board as a whole, though? Because I don't. This place can be wonderful at times. Imagine someone *JUST* seeing all the utter guff on DiS_quotestoday rather than Balonz's three-tiered Minky thread!
is focussing on DiS.
@DiS_quotestoday, would you like to reply to me?
I'm not unlocking it for them.
They also said "If anyone finds any that they think are particularly bad, or are offended that such discussion has been dismissed as 'joking' or casual......please feel free to either @ this account of shed light onto it via the boards."
Presume they meant or rather than of, there.
yeah i guess if tweets are from this year its still accurate.
it seems like people say words that offend less but theres still stuff on there thats recent including the cat race thing?
as a snapshot of the boards as a whole no theres loads of threads where nobody says something horrible but its still happening and affecting people
dis seems mainly about that hot air balloon thing and then things to do with sandwiches but yeah theres still the bad stuff and its probably worth going on about all the bad stuff loads and loads and the hot air balloon thing can happen too.
i don't think theres any reason to be annoyed that people are saying theres problems with things
sorry i always say the most obvious stuff everyones thought about anyway
schism is that people by and large have acknowledged that there were some terrible moments in DiS's past. I don't think however that anyone has claimed that DiS is some virtual paragon of virtue which is why a twitter account that was made purely to comment on the offensive parts of DiS seems somewhat disproportionate.
idk, some people say they've acknowledged stuff (usually with some patronising comment about how they're really grateful for darwindude plus a pick n mix of tiramisu, icouldwinarabbit, georgiabeth and wishpig posting about this stuff cos it's "really made them think") but i'm not convinced stuff has changed
this forum is still pretty limited in the kinds of people that post on it in my experience. afaik there are still no trans or genderqueer people posting regularly, very few poc. you have to wonder why this is. there aren't even more than a dozen or so women posting. i guess more and more this website just seems to be a bunch of out of date old men... even the kind of stuff people speak about is like boring sport, domestic goods, being a dad or whatever. i still feel like there's a general attitude that you're not legitimate unless you grow up, get a job and a wife and stop talking about "6th form politics"
think the twitter thing isn't subtle or anything but i'm not convinced it matters, neither are the threads about how many times you had to flush the toilet last time you had diarrhoea or whatever. it just draws attention to a certain milieu on this site and maybe people will think differently in the future
"even the kind of stuff people speak about is like boring sport, domestic goods, being a dad or whatever. i still feel like there's a general attitude that you're not legitimate unless you grow up, get a job and a wife and stop talking about "6th form politics"
needlessly_defensive to thread, etc etc
nah it's a fair point man
all the dadsnet stuff, things like "what white goods have you got on hold currently", what do you get in the boots meal deal. that's the kind of minutiae that not everyone can get involved with and maybe those threads are where the cliques form
reading this book at the moment by evgeny morozov and there's a chapter about how russian state funds stuff like reality tv shows about breast enlargement because if the populace is well entertained they know they won't end up turning to politics. apparently in lots of east germany you could still get western television and people were happy to just sit on their sofas watching dubbed episodes of Dallas... it was only in the areas that people didn't have Dallas that there was large scale dissatisfaction
what i am saying is.... less threads about egg slicers, more threads about rupaul's drag race and queer theory and this kinda stuff won't happen
Decent trolling btw.
but how can you forcibly change the makeup and the constituency of this community? People will talk about what they want to talk about, and most of that is banality and miscellania. You can't force people to engage and be serious. Most people don't come to the social board to be serious, they come to vent, to ask for advice, to make jokes and to talk about their weekends or their distractions from their dull, shitty, boring, frustrating (delete as applicable) jobs.
I'm not convinced that the kind of people you're all thinking should be welcomed here actually want to come here in the first place, and not solely because they feel excluded or oppressed here - they just don't have any interest in talking about the things the rest of the community finds of interest.
I basically come on here for the NFL threads because I don't have anyone else to talk to that about (even that's changing now) and to vent when I'm stressed or depressed or feel trapped. Music forum has died a death, even the Rolling Dance Mongrel has whelped and keeled over.
and tbh an indie music website is never going to attract that kind of person.
The thing about women is much stranger. It definitely was a whole lot more balanced a few years back. But if anything it feels less relentlessly macho on here (football thread aside) than it used to be, so I'm at a loss...
but yeah essentially 99% of this is explained by the fact this forum is part of a dull indie music website.
cause the guys all became pansies, instead of the attractive hard-nosed rape joke indie thugs of yesteryear.
why wouldn't an indie music website attract trans or gq people?
I genuinely do not understand this.
the attitude seems to be that if you're trans* then you have to be drawn to sites for people who are trans* or an activist, rather than just another normal human being. Bit silly. There are trans* people who are indie bedwetters too, as with everything else.
If anything it's more that even with lot's of new users still signing up daily, it's rare for anyone, whether trans* or not, to interact and feel confident enough to post.
It also wouldn't help with the current climate either, and the fact that the more ignorant postings of yore are being brought to the fore - whether rightly or wrongly.
why would trans or genderqueer people not want to talk about the same stuff as you or anyone else who posts on DiS?
instead of saying it on here or signing up if they're not a poster already.
am bored too
do they need permission?
its his photo.
If it is someone mischeiviously appropriating his image then I suspect that the twitterer is not posing their tweets entirely sincerely....I suspect they would be a troll?? maybe
My original post with the open question about DD and GB was ironic. Clearly. Just getting that down before I get pulled up on it by someone on Twitter in 2025.
I know that neither of them would be malicious or nasty enough to do this.
just single words, mostly. It mostly misses the larger sexism/isms that can be found in some text on here.
I was pretty offended that people thought it was me. On Sunday I was tired of verbally wrestling with people because I felt I couldn't say much more, and I knew I had a really busy week coming up and wouldn't have the chance to engage with people. That doesn't mean I was going to spend my time setting up a weird sneaky twitter account.
I've currently got something at work that needs lots of concentration to a strict deadline, so I'm not around to talk in the daytime (basically, I work in print design, and something I work on is going to press next week, so it means finishing everything up, and then minutely checking that everything is perfect and ready in time, and making loads of elaborate spreadsheets and running loads of reports about the whole thing because if you miss your assigned printing press window or need to get new offset plates done because of a mistake you get charged a shitload of money for wasting the printers' time). I wanted to feel like I'd accomplished *something* on Monday evening, so I did a redesign of the website for an organisation I volunteer for before they are featured in the press next week (something I'll continue to do in any spare time this week). I'd felt like a bit of a useless member recently, because the things they've needed doing recently are not things I have any skills in, so it was nice to feel useful and like I'd done something uncontroversially constructive. I saw a dear friend yesterday, and played with her pet rats. The shy rat decided he liked me now, because I fed him coconut. Today I went to an art show with my old housemate. All good uses of my time.
The twitter account looks almost like it's designed to make people not want to discuss this stuff, by deliberately making them feel attacked, and making anyone who does raise these topics in a more nuanced way, and want to discuss with people look really bad in association
It *does* miss the actual structural things like creakyknees says. It feels a lot like someone who isn't actually involved with any activism stuff just got a list of slurs from somewhere and has been mechanically putting them into google and tweeting whatever comes out, because they're not identifying the structural things like assumptions behind things the way people who actually want to make you think do. (Hi DarwinDude & GeorgiaBeth)
I certainly haven't seen any posts indicating that people thought that, anyway.
I agree though, I think if we need to change the culture around here to be more inclusive/nicer all round, and that Twitter account is probably slowing progress if anything.
even though it wouldn't really make any sense. There are a few posts in this thread saying that it's probably her.
is that because I don't use the key words of 'tranny' 'I hate women' and 'nigga'. is this the only criteria for being in this twitter? not actual racism, sexism and transphobia?
is this the only CRITERION
I like your spot there. I am afraid that I was just full of enthusiasm and verve, thus causing me to notice that I'd used 'words' (which made me think of plurality) but then I failed to notice that I had started a new sentence (cos I didn't capitalise my 'I' after the full stop) and had then changed the subject to 'key words' as a singular, by using 'this'. My original mistake was therefore just due to haste and carelessness with my capitalisation which then had a knock on effect.
PS I only got a c at English O level so what do you expect? I'm crap with words, I'm afraid.....can't express myself properly, led to a lot of bullying, I guess it might be a sort of handicap, I mean I've got a shed load of stuff in my head, but shit verbals :(
I want to be remembered for threads like this http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4327812
Instead of threads like THIS
I just bumped it. Add more. let's wash the stink off the streets
mate, check the selfie awards announcement
he'll be leveraging that for weeks.
I've always liked you, even when I find you annoying I feel guilty. At least you try and post interesting and cool stuff for debate on the music forum.
when was the last time YOU used an egg slicer? questions remained unanswered.
I slice eggs with my bear hands
it's a lost cause up there innit
like a 30 post thread there at the moment about "what's the difference between indie and alternative"
if it wasn't so boring i wouldn't have to wade into threads like this to keep myself occupied
OWNER: Would you like a dog biscuit?
FRED BASSETT: Ooh no

KERMIT THE FROG: And Tiny Tim died a horrific death because Roscoe flat-out refused to change his ways. And fair play to him because that really was an awful joke
You're telling me that instead of teaching some 9 yr olds about Ancient Greece I could have been getting involved in this all day??
We could really do with some more fun threads, y'know? Not being able to talk to girls at bus stops, dogs in playgrounds, freezing bread, that kind of thing. Self-examination is great but how meta this site has become has made it deeply tedious.
but I take it that you are saying that you were different then and that you apologise for that, and you didn't really know what you were thinking by posting that? amirite?
but it seems pretty unlikely whatever it was could justify it. I was a thoughtless fucking idiot at that age and would never under any circumstances write something like that now. Tbh it's made today pretty miserable knowing that such a noxious thing has been dredged up to make a poorly formed internet point.
a few days ago where a few/one of your old posts was bumped, huh? how will you learn if you don't even turn up your own judging and shaming session?
I've been out of town all week. *trademark laugh* What's been going o...?...I...whurrrrrrrrrrgh.
Anyway, I'm off to bed. I'll be back in the morning when I've had a good, hard think of something I can be offended by.
(Am I allowed to say that or is that hating on Christians?!)
I typed tranny once FOUR YEARS AGO and said I hate women (when I clearly don't)
Someone here isn't getting laid.
This forum is so shit! I think people don't want to post cause is awful and full of people who want to call you out on every little thing.
pretty sure that's offensive to virgins, so roughly 90% of the users on here
also i don't think it's full of people who want to call people out but there's definitely a vocal minority who suck the joy and flippancy out of every thread they can
I think in this instance I think it's actually a lurker or former non-current poster.
I guess the question is what (if anything) should be done about it, or if it's just best to ignore...
literally called something like DiSoffensivequotes or something. I blocked it almost instantly but I'm a little confused as to how they found me on twitter as only a select few DiSers already follow me on twitter and my handle isn't the same as the one I have on here.
IT'S ONE OF MY FOLLOWERS (probably not).
I think if you follow things like dis quotes and other dissers, it's easy to find dissers but not necessarily to connect them to their profiles (same with facebook - always get people with loads of mutual friends off dis but have no idea what their usernames are).
I just hope this is the last one 'cos I don't like getting followed by new ones every day. Three so far is enough (or two and a bit, the second one that cropped up is maybe not actually the same as the others but we'll see).
Shaming people isn't nice. There's barely ever any such thing as a bad person anyway just I'll-informed.
