I have to disagree. It's a type of hat that resembles a fedora and has even been called a "crumpled fedora" but it's not a "type" of fedora. It's a "type" of hat. It's like how an apple and a tomato are both fruits.

huh, it appears you are correct. I distinctly reading somewhere reputable before that they are a type of fedora, but I can't for the life of me find anywhere that says it now. haha

Yeah word meanings changes over time

But if the "phobia" in homopobhia means a dislike/discrimination/fears towards homosex people, why the "phobia" in negrophobia only means a dislike/fears towards black people, but not discrimination towards them. Both definition comes from Merriam-Webster.

Honestly, the "discrimination" meaning on "homophobia" term just sounds like an exaggeration made by gay supporters to call people who disagrees with them. And the "discrimination" definition probably just added not so long ago, probably less than 2 years ago when the gay bandwagons started. Not that I hate gay people, but I just don't like it when people exaggerate that much that they made up a new meaning of a word that only benefits them. It's like editing a Wiki's page so you can win an argument on the internet.
User avatar #162 - misfitxcreepx (01/21/2014) [-]
Yeah, you're probably completely right, but the fact still remains that the word homophobia does mean an aversion to homosexuals now.

And I totally agree, I don't think that it should mean an aversion to or discrimination against them, but it does. And us arguing about it on fj isn't going to get them to change it. haha

And about your first point. What I was trying to say was that "phobia" hasn't changed, and "homo" hasn't changed, but the complete word "homophobia" has. While it is made up of two different words, it still is its own. You know what I mean?

Retards like you ruined the terms.

Phobia means fear and nothing else.
you don't have "phobia" of something if you hate it.
User avatar #136 - misfitxcreepx (01/20/2014) [-]
I ruined the term? How, by looking up a definition and seeing that Homophobia isn't just fearing homosexuals anymore? Please explain how I ruined the term.

You're right, Phobia means having an irrational fear of something. But(as I've posted below) according to Merriam-Webster, the oxford dictionaries, and others I'm sure, Homophobia can also be an extreme aversion to homosexuals, not just fear of.
User avatar #81 - dbrak (01/20/2014) [-]
actually yes it can. Something that is hydrophobic repels water. it's not afraid of it, it just has an aversion.

Probably not, no.

While Homophobia originally would have meant fear of homosexuality, it has changed to the definition I posted below. Words change in meaning over time.

Taken from Merriam-Webster.

And yeah, I know what a phobia is, but as time goes on words change meanings a bit. This is one of those cases. Like what dbrak said about things being hydrophobic. Obviously my hydrophobic shirt doesn't fear water, it just repels it.

idk why honestly, it's just the first thing that came into my head.

I guess you could say....
Assassins fight for freedom, for people to be able to live by leading and governing themselves, a world where everyone works together to achieve something and improve society.
Templars fight to rule with just one leader that controls every living thing on the planet.
The point would be that it's two sides that are always against each other, always fighting and trying to put a stop to the other's ways. Not comparing Assassins to Christians and Templars to Athiests, because Assassins could be Christians or Athiests and Templars could as well
Christians and Athiests are two groups that have been against each other for a long time, and have always fought over whose belief is correct. Although, people today (at least people in my generation, teens) don't care as much as they used to. I'm a Catholic (which is a branch of Christianity) and have a few Atheist friends, and they're pretty cool. I don't care what they believe.
That's just what I thought.

I can see the comparison on a level of them being against each other (to a certain degree) but I feel like the roles would be switched. Especially since the Knights Templar WERE a christian military organisation. haha.

So if I become a firefighter and fight fires, then get amnesia and forget that I was a firefighter, that means I actually wasn't one at all?

Or better yet, if I become a doctor and save lives, then lose my memory of being a doctor, by your logic I was never a doctor in the first place.

And by using that logic... Hold on, I'm gonna go on a killing spree and take some memory erasing pills. After I forget I murdered everyone, I'll have never even been a murderer at all!

I feel it is a sign of being uneducated, or slow.

Southern Baptist Church's and southern states like Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia have a bad reputation of doing this. Any time something good happens to them, they don't give credit to anyone, they say God made good things happen to them. But when something bad happens, it wasn't God, it was the free will of a bad person.

It's such bullshit, and you cant go a block without hearing it come out of someones mouth.

As an English major I just want to point out that in a scholastic setting the words would operate the way mrgreat suggests. Althought it is a dictionary of good repute, Merriam-webster is too often swayed by popular society into cataloging trends and fads into it's volumes. So while it is technically acceptable according to their standards, it would not work if you were actually in a setting that focuses on proper English. He still could have been much less of a douche about it.

Just throwing that out there for you in a neutral way.

The white text makes it not matter.

Reading white over dark colors is very easy, as seen from the comments section of fj. white text over dark grey.
Reading white over light colors is difficult, but if the text has a black outline, it negates the difficulty and makes it very easy to read.
Only white text doesn't always work, and only black text doesn't always work, but the combination of white text and a black outline literally always works. There has never been a situation where I have had difficulty reading something that had white text and black outline
