    inspired by widerstand's offhand remark in another thread...

    i know i've heard so many over the years, but i can't remember that many, probably because they the people who used them were so stupid they weren't worth remembering, and also because it was years ago mostly. but nevertheless i fully expect this to be a hilarious thread.

    let's see... potassium, scabs, midget, myself, night, two, purple, yyks! (pronounced "yikes")... i have this vague memory about how some of the really pc people who want to be referred to by made-up pronouns were the worst about this and would also change their names to ridiculous shit every other month...

    I would leave the queer stuff out of this thread as it seems to me like trying to figure out onesidentity outside of a bullshit 2 gendered culture is different than a crusty kid picking up a stupid nickname.

    There are folks on this site with some pretty dumb sounding names, (pony spit, the captian, and all of the rainbow kids, come to mind) but I know so many more in real life who I don't want to list.
    But I "loled" when I saw that picture on LATFO of the guy named Pilgrim Bison.

    I wonder how stupid people think my name is....

    I was refered to as superhero by a chena that fancied herself "kryptonite"

    She'll probably show up and call me a bunch of names in this thread.

    ok, i didn't really want to open a can of worms with that. i think being queer or genderqueer is great. i just think that asking everyone around you to add words to their most basic vocabulary, whether zi/co/hir or some new word that you made up, and possibly changing this every other month, and acting like anyone who says the wrong thing (even by accident) is being fucked up and oppressing you, is kiiinda ridiculous. and yes, i am speaking from personal experience and not from hypothetical stereotypes of pc kids. i also think it is debatable to say that we live in a two-gendered culture since the attitudes and realities attached to gender and sexual identity have changed considerably since the 1950s.

    I don't have a nickname, all I have is my given name and a screen name. But hey, that works for me.

    My username is yes after the state im from, but on the road i go by blu or blue for the literate freaks. who gives a shit what their name is theres prolly a story behind it. sometimes its not just about kids trying to sound cool i also go by forest . because the woods or a central place to my existence fuck you if you get pissy at someone having a wierd name. nothin wrong with not liking it but when you get all pissy .

    One of my biggest pet peeves is kids who call themselves "Boston" when they're actually just from eastern mass or some other state entirely. Out of the about 20 Bostons I've met, only one was actually from the city of Boston.

    I think I've met at least 10 punk girls who call themselves "cunt" at this point. They normally have a dog in tow named either "puke" or "dumpster."
