As we have seen in the "Please be Respectful" post, people are getting carried away.

Chick FFR Racer has changed her screen name to Lady FFR Racer, because it may be offensive to some viewers.

Who wants the return of Chick FFR Racer?

I think that Mary is simply taking her own council.

Cheers

I can't believe that the we have gotten this PC. I can see her point with the pictures, but she is a female. She should be allowed to refer to herself in any manner she wishes, be it Chick, Lady, Girl, Woman... Even if some moron was offened by "Chick" no body called her that anyway. If this moron is a guy he has no say in this because he's not a woman.

I'm a cracker. If your offened by that tough, because I'm not offened and that's what I want to call myself.

"Lady" or "Chick" call youself what you would like.

Not to speak for him, but I don't think he was offended by the term chick. I think he was trying to inject some humor. Mary was saying some might be offended by the pics, here screen name was chick ffr racer and he was throwing it back at her that he was offended by the term chick. At least that is the way I took it.

Please read this and then think about it for a minute.

I believe this thread was started with the intent of giving Mary a chance to reconsider her name change in responce to the other thread she started. With this in mind and so as to not start another bad thread can we try this:
From this point just vote, yes I said just vote, as in simply posting the name you like with no other commemts. This is so simple, then let Mary make the decision to keep her new name or go back to her original name.

Chick FFR Racer or Lady FFR Racer

Lets get back to building Cobras and forget this BS thread. It is starting to sound like "another forum" that used to be.

I take offense at your use of 'BS.' Please, remove it. My cousin was killed by Van, could you change that too?

Well, for what its worth, I saw (but didn't meet) Mary at SEMA and the dinner.

I think she would fall into the Lady category much more than the Chick category.

But, "what's in a name?"

Lets get back to Cobras.

I think I've got the answer:

We can set up a Decency Commitee made up of a cross section so it 'looks like America' with the proper amount of minorities, deviants and activists. Any questionable graphic must be submitted to the commitee for approval. Upon approval the Comrades will post the pic, if indecent it can be touched up and posted.

If anyone posts indecent pics without permission he/she/it will be publically criticized and sent to sensitivity training or the re-education camp.

Give me a break! Y'know I just read in todays newpaper that elementary schools in NJ have outlawed the playing of Tag and Dodgeball. Bad for the self esteem and it 'victimizes' children.

If we find it offensive, we could stone the poster. The more offensive (or more people that were offened by it), the more the poster would get stoned. It's a self adjusting ratio. Eventually indecent exposturs will learn or die. This could work. I don't know how we could have a public stoning since we all live so far from each other. Maybe we could hold the stonings at the FFROG events. Yes, this will definatly work. :D


I have changed my name to ToyoKogyo12aTurbo for those that found my previous name offensive.

"Victimizes" - I think it builds character.

And personally, I like "Chick" better because it stated that she was confidant enough in herself to call herself a "Chick" and not be offended by it.

Calling people a moron is disrepectful, uncalled for and not politically acceptable.

If mary can make her own call, so can the poster of pictures.

Mary doesn't need the "Lady" part of her name to be regarded as a lady. I have known she is a lady, even with "Chick" in her name.

I rather liked the UPS driver, but I must admit, it was a pretty racy photo, and I must also admit to having the required hormones to appreciate such a photo. I do not consider that photo to be pornographic, however, that definition is up to the observer. One person's porn is another's family photo. The bottom line is, if the government forbids a photo like that, then that is censorship and is wrong. If we, as members of this site, mutually choose not to post photos like that out of respect for the perceptions of other, it is not censorship, it is consensus and is right.

Mary,

I've never seen or met you but I'm sure that if I look up "lady" in my dictionary I'll find your picture there.

To all of the rest of you,

We watched the World Trade Center collapse on TV, does that make it OK? Just because it was on TV.

I have watched common courtesy and respect decline in this country for the last 40 something years. Courtesy and respect are amoung the glues that bind society together, let us all make our society a little stronger.

Some of you have spoken of the men that have fought and died to protect our right to "free speach", my father died this last year after serving 35 years in three wars and collecting two silver stars, one bronze star and seven purple hearts. What we have here is NOT the "free speach" he and so many others fought to defend; rather we have the squabbling or spoiled children. Lets get back to the focus of this forum, building our dream cars and HELPING each other do it right.
