Leave it to the great philosopher and truth seer Admin to complicate things when they are very simple. A poster said that "Asians and non-whites are disgusting in all ways and have always been ever". In case it was a serious or kind of serious statement I pointed out that I've seen places in Asia that are super clean like I've never seen in the west, and yes also very messy. There's nothing complicated here, just literally pointing out what I've seen to rebut something I read. Postmodern? Whatever...Admin wrote: ↑2 weeks agoI'll just pretend that hierarchies of quality and values don't exist and wait for @That Guy to use the flip side of this statement to his advantage. Too bad he's banned until mid-June.
This is about as efficient as saying "I'm not a crook". Good old postmodern yettee paving the way for the far right.
Sorry if this sounds cryptic or unfair, I know you mean well, we don't even need to agree on what ethnic group would come out on top if we ranked them by cleanliness. By saying the above, you have framed the debate a certain way and the other side will be overjoyed to go through that door.
And yes, @Rudiger was joking, which is the best way to diffuse tension regarding those subjects which the modern left has made problematic by trying to deconstruct realities that didn't need any deconstruction at all.
What exactly were you trying to achieve by making the above statement?
What was I trying to achieve? Sharing something I've learned as a result of a lot of firsthand experience in Asia, which is that the countries are very different from each other so no generalization about Asians or Asia really fits. I have no idea what Rudiger knows about Asia or his experience there, but in general I see and hear a lot of "Asians are ____" , "Asia is ____" , and it's almost always impossible to generalize based on my experience. To some extent based on individual countries or regions of Asia, sure, but not "Asians" or "Asian countries".
