More Deep Thinking

ABOVE: Trevor Thomas

Shorter Trevor Thomas, The American Genius
The Dumbest Word in the English Language

  • I am sick of liberals claiming that conservatives discriminate against homos when my dictionary clearly proves that this cannot be the case.

A favorite wingnut trick is to appeal to a dictionary as the ultimate arbiter of a moral argument. You know, as when they say, gay marriage is wrong because some dust-encrusted dictionary from the 1930s defines marriage as a legal or religious union of “a man and a woman.” Following that line of argument, of course, they could easily establish once and for all that Jesus is the sole path to salvation by looking him up in the dictionary where it clearly states he is the Son of God. Oops. Wait. Never mind.

Anyway, back to the dictionary and the other amazing things that can be found therein. According to Trevor Thomas (you remember him), dictionaries don’t simply define words but can answer many other questions, such as whether conservatives discriminate against gay people. Trevor is sick and tired of the homos getting all whiney about how they are mistreated and he is going to throw his dictionary at them to prove that discrimination is simply a figment of their sex-obsessed imaginations.

Trevor’s starting point for this fascinating exercise was Frank Rich calling the Mormon Church homophobic.

Merriam-Webster defines [homophobia] as “irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals.” … almost exclusively those labeled as “homophobe” have a biblical conviction against homosexual behavior, and nothing more. They have no “irrational fear” of homosexuals, or a “dread of being in close quarters” with them.  A friend, language expert, and fellow Christian, Dr. Danny Evans, notes that the common use of homophobe is a “completely erroneous use of the word. Most of us know that a phobia is a fear of certain things or situations. It’s interesting that those who oppose homosexuality are categorized as ‘homophobic,’ especially since fear has nothing to do with the opposition to homosexuality. From a Christian viewpoint, homosexuality is not feared, but rather opposed based on the biblical explanation of it.

What I love about the writing stable at the American “Thinker” is that most of them appear to be so stupid that they can’t even find their way between their own bathrooms and kitchens without leaving a trail of breadcrumbs. Notice that whip-smart Trevor apparently doesn’t read his own fricking definition of homophobia which includes, duh, “discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals,” which kind of makes his argument that Christians aren’t homophobic because they are scared of guys pretty ridiculous.

But, okay, let’s ignore that teensy problem that the definition he cites as proof that folks aren’t homophobic doesn’t support his argument. Let’s ignore that definition completely and consider whether “phobia” only means, as “language expert” Dr. Danny Evans says, fear of something and whether therefore people who hate gays but don’t pee in their pants when they see gay people aren’t really homophobic. The problem here is that everyone knows that there is a use of phobia and phobic in words unrelated to the clinical sense of a mental disorder exhibiting itself by irrational fear. There are plenty of uses of those suffixes to indicate simple dislike, such as, for example, xenophobia, anglophobia, francophobia, etc., etc. So much for Dr. Danny’s language expertise.

Of course, we can alway sidestep this silly argumentum ad dictionarium by simply calling Trevor and his ilk bigots. Game over. Now shove your dictionary up your ass, bigot.

    The “language expert” apparently neglected the helpfully included dictionary definition. Most of us know what is meant by “homophobe” and most of us, on reading the dictionary definition know what “aversion” means, too.

    In his defense, the Alchemist (who is very much out of the closet) from “The Venture Bros.” supports the theory that the dictionary definition are more reliable then modern interpretations/re-interpretations of words.

    This is one of the most annoying things homophobes ever say. Maybe the most. It’s just so goddamn dumb, since no one really thinks that every single word in the English language that comes from Latin or Greek roots must literally mean to what those roots meant in Latin or Greek.

    Hemophilia isn’t a condition where someone is sexually attracted to blood, a salad isn’t just made from salt, and a homophobe isn’t someone with an irrational fear of sameness. I’d suggest Trevor look the word up in an American English dictionary, but then he did – and he transcribed the definition! – without taking it in at all.

    The “so propagandized they live in another dimension” wingnuttery is scary, but the “so dumb they stare simple evidence of why they’re wrong right in the face” stuff is extremely aggravating.

    If dictionaries are good, then good ones are better, but the most thorough ones are of no help to conservatives. As noted yesterday, they like a reductionist view of just about anything. It follows that they’d find a good long dive into etymology as hurtful as a pool of razors.

    Now, nobody uses “ergophobia” (fear of work), but the views of its coiner look startlingly familiar …

    “Mr. W.D. Spanton (Leeds) considered that the most prominent causes of physical degeneration were–efforts to rear premature and diseased infants, absurd educational high pressure, cigarette smoking in the younger generation, and late hours at night; in fact, the love of pleasure and ergophobia in all classes of society. He considered that there was too much cheap philanthropy, that life was made too easy for the young poor, and that by modern educational methods proper parental discipline was rendered almost impossible. [report on the 73rd annual meeting of the British Medical Association, "Nature," Aug. 3, 1905]”

    The same source shitcans the term coulrophobia (morbid fear of clowns): “The whole creation looks suspiciously like the sort of thing idle pseudo-intellectuals invent on the Internet and which every smarty-pants takes up thereafter;” — “though the phenomenon is real enough.”

  41. Major Kong said,

    This is the dumbest argument about a “homo-” word since William Safire contended that lesbians shouldn’t call themselves homosexuals since the prefix “homo-” means “man.”

    In Latin, it does. In Greek, it means “same,” as in “same sex.” Safire at least corrected himself in his next column; today’s goofs would just scrub it from their websites and pretend it didn’t happen.

    If I were a bigoted POS like this guy, I’d embrace the term homophobia. Phobia sort of implies that the fear is irrational, yet it exists and is very real. If they aren’t homophobic, they’re just bigoted fucking assholes, which I believe to be the case anyway. I’ve never really liked the term homophobic. It feels like we’re going way too easy on them when we use it. It’s sort of like calling racists ignorant. In 2012, nobody is ignorant about race anymore. They choose to be asshole hatemongers and fucking know better. They do it because they’re just shitty people.

Now, of course Romney’s interlocutors are being manipulative — in a common manner that he should be able to deal with graciously. Dare I say like Obama would, although Obama’s policies deserve a similar gotcha.

    All Romney is feeling there is stuff like annoyance, suppressed rage at being put on the spot, etc. It’s all about him … If his views (not just re: marijuana) are defensible, if his policies are humane, why is he so fucking uncomfortable? He’s not even a good liar, just a dogged one. Not shameless, but pained. So quit, asshole.

    Funny:

    Mitt has said this about polygamy: “I must admit, I can’t imagine anything more awful than polygamy.” This is a failure of imagination. I can, in a split second, imagine lots of things more awful than polygamy. One, two, three, go! The Holocaust, guzzling a bucket of pus, a baboon fucking a human baby. I could quite easily go on but shall not.

    Coming from someone else, I can read this as a joke: “Take my wives. Please,” or something. It is genuinely odd, though. I take no truck with polygamy, but (at least as a man) it’s not hard to imagine it being good … just gloss over the bad stuff, like in any fantasy.

    Here’s an endorsement that may not get trumpeted with a press release or public appearance. Retired porn star queen Jenna Jameson has thrown in with presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, citing the party’s preference for low taxes on the wealthy.

    “I’m very looking forward to a Republican being back in office,” Jameson told a CBS reporter at the anniversary celebration of a gentleman’s club in San Francisco on Thursday. “When you’re rich, you want a Republican in office.”

    Yep, it’s mostly the black market folk that get into the (mostly Mound culture) archeological areas. There are loads of arrowheads over in the Eastern part of Arkansas – folks lived there for hundreds of years. The meth head finds are not all that out of the ordinary. I always thought with that kind of energy they ought to be over at Crater of Diamonds state park, but I imagine that’s closed at night, the prime hunting time.

The pothunters one occasional sees in 4 Corners country always look pretty crispy. I wonder if those loonies constantly searching for minie balls around east central Virginia are cranking.

She appeared to be under the impression that witch-sniffers psychologists were infallible judges of future criminality, and that future mass shootings could be avoided by selectively withdrawing constitutional rights from psychologically-unusual individuals and locking them up before they do anything illegal.

    In other words, the whole problem lies with a small group of Others rather than with all us good sane people.

    TBogg has a Godlstein post, and references one of the great classics of Sadly, No! renown, the classic Amy Alcon Shit Moat thread.

    Executive summary: Jeff Godlstein begs his readers for money, to buy guns so he can Defend His Family after the November election when the race war comes down. Excellent timing, Jeff.
    For added hilarity, he writes of a rifle as a “melee weapon”, which if nothing else will bolster his credibility with the D-&-D-playing sector of his readership (though there is a disappointing failure to go into the detail of the hit points and saving throws he is seeking).

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I am pretty sure that the protagonist of the Turner Diaries does not stoop to panhandling to fund his personal arsenal.

    Smut, there’s even a better one out there this week: Tucker the Orange had his Twitter account hacked, and responded by offering a gun to the first reader that could help him track down the perpetrators.

    “Here’s a gun! Why don’t you and him fight!”
