  3. Good thing that she didn't get the tattoo in order to solely satisfy you and ensure you were turned on. fuck off m8 people can get tattoos if they want to, controlling piece of shit.

    1. While OP sounds like an ass, I hate this argument. No one claimed she needs to satisfy OP, just that if she wants to turn on OP she shouldn't get the tattoo. Saying that's controlling is like saying requiring doctors to have med school degrees is controlling -- it's a prerequisite for the job, but no one put a gun to you head and said be a doctor.

      I don't subscribe to your moral relativism.

    7. ^Sorry, let me rephrase for you since you misread/read what you wanted into it. Tattoos are not nearly as much of a taboo as they used to be, especially those in discreet places and those depicting things that are sfw and unoffensive. The year is irrelevant and was used only to indicate that this is a more recent phenomenon. Did that get the message through your bubble?

      Delete
    8. I know exactly what you said, moron. Hence the second part of my reply.

      The current year jab was at your autistic use of {{ITS 2016}}

      Delete
    9. ^You call me a moron, but you also don't seem to understand what autism or moral relativism is. Unless you're implying that getting a tattoo is actually intrinsically a-moral, like murder or theft. This also makes you a moron so I guess you're in an ironic bind. Side note, never said "its 2016" much less used it as an argument.

      Delete
    10. > You guys living in the same 2016 I am?

      Defacing your body in a manner that tells others you're a degenerate is a priori immoral as it creates division in society.

      > Using autism as a strawman

      Well, nothing to see here anymore.

      Delete
    11. Defacing your body in itself is not immoral. Getting tattoos is not necessarily defacing your body. Tattoos don't necessarily indicate or associate with degeneracy. Divisions in society are not immoral. Divisions in society are (sometimes) indicated by tattoos but definitely are the cause. You're mistaking your own distorted view with actual fact.

      Now consider this: A woman gets a pink ribbon and name tattooed for the mother she lost to breast cancer. A proud Canadian gets a fancy maple leaf tattoo. A service person gets a tattoo designating their unit and years of service. A group of friends get matching tattoos of a quote their deceased friend said at a World Vision conference. A couple get matching world traveler tattoos for their 25th anniversary. How are any of these people being immoral? Degenerate? These are all people I know.

      "Spotted the degenerate"? I'm pretty sure calling someone an autist for referring to the current year is a few rungs down the moral ladder from getting some ink. You don't seem like a good person in general, much less in a position to judge others. Maybe leverage this interaction for some personal growth.

      Yes, Google it you fucking moron. You're not helping your case that people with tattoos aren't idiots.

      > Is "dumbfounded by idiocy" an emotional response? Technically I guess.

      Your degeneracy is only matched by your self-righteousness. What a fucking cunt.

      Tattoos are, and always will be, a mark of degeneracy.

      > B-but people say it's acceptable now

      Yea, if they can't see them. And your job is some bullshit like retail.

      A lot of things have been forcefully "accepted" by people. Doesn't mean they like it one bit, they just don't say anything.

      But anyway, you do you. Your pictures are super pretty and special and you are unique.

    12. Emotional response? Aww snowflake

      Lol I know what moral relativism is. That was "who the fuck would actually ascribe moral weighting to something so innocuous as body ink?" It's hilarious. Like saying you think those who wear sandals are bad people.

      Your anger and insecurity are palpable. I'm getting the vibe that got spurned by a woman that either had tattoos or ended up getting them, or that she ended up with a guy who has them. Far off?

      Delete
    13. Extremely far off. I'm not a degenerate like yourself; my life doesn't revolve around sex and hooking up with other whores.

      What emotional response? I'm being as objective as I can here. You, on the other hand, have completely ignored all points I made:

      1. You called someone child-like while supporting an emotionally-stunted version of self expression in the form of body mutilation.

      2. You still don't understand what was meant by moral relativism. Just because tattoos are trendy now, doesn't make them any less trashy or morally questionable. The act itself is not morally wrong, it is the assumption of lack of morality on the part of the "tatoo-ee" which comes up, since tattoos are associated with a negative stigma of drugs, criminal activity and whores.

      3. You were being extremely self-righteous. That's obvious to anyone. not an emotional response.

      4. The last part of my comment, where I insinuated that tattoos are for special snowflakes that need to show off how special they are to everyone. This is especially true of under-educated and low socio-economic status people with tattoos, they need to feel like they mean something, even if their role is the village idiot.

      5. Lastly, I accepted your premise that people are "OK" with tattoos and they will hire you... as long as they don't see them, I.e: as long as no one can tell you're a degenerate. Not really a great argument since it would be like the equivalent of saying "yes we hire gays but no one can know they're gay"... not exactly "accepting" is it?

      If you want an emotional argument it's the OP. Women with tattoos are nasty looking. So, to reiterate, no, I did not get rejected by some tattooed whore. I fucked a few and dropped them like the whores they were, giving it up after a few days as you'd expect a girl with tattoos to do. Daddy issues indicators, as someone else in the thread mentioned.

      If a girl did reject me for a guy with tattoos she wasn't worth much to begin with, having shit taste and no desire for a good future.

      Anger? Maybe, since I have to repeat myself.

      Insecurity, no. I am fine. I just think tattoos are for degenerates. Also for insecure people, funny enough. They need to put pretty pictures on their body to feel attractive. People look at them alright..

    14. A couple points:

      A.
      This-"Extremely far off. I'm not a degenerate like yourself; my life doesn't revolve around sex and hooking up with other whores".

      plus this-. "I fucked a few and dropped them like the whores they were",

      Is absolutely hilarious, surely you can see why.

      B.This -"The act itself is not morally wrong"

      is in direct contradiction with this

      "doesn't make them any less trashy or morally questionable"

      rendering this

      "it is the assumption of lack of morality on the part of the "tatoo-ee" which comes up, since tattoos are associated with a negative stigma of drugs, criminal activity and whores"

      A flawed assumption and your whole application of moral relativism hilariously wrong. If a behaviour is not inherently immoral (by your own admission) but is frowned upon because of association of that behaviour with a particular group of the population, than the acceptance of that behaviour does not represent a change in the morality of the behaviour (because it was never immoral) but instead a change in the people doing it. A better example of temporal moral relativism in North America would be attitudes towards pre-marital sex, which you seem to have no problem with.

      If you've got a problem with the acceptance of the professionalism of tattoos that's fair, but it's akin to long hair and beards. Not exactly calling cards, but far from a mark of degeneracy.

      C. You actually have the gall to call someone self-righteous while simultaneously presuming to characterize at this point very much non-homogeneous group of people as "degenerates" because of bits of coloured skin based on a dated stereotype and an absolutely ridiculous superiority complex.

      You've hypocritically called people whores while boasting about whorish behaviour.

      Frankly you're the only one in this thread who's expressed any thing close to degeneracy, based on your attitudes towards women and aggressively judgmental tendencies.

      Delete
    15. > You've hypocritically called people whores while boasting about whorish behaviour.

      People grow up and learn the hard way. I'm speaking from experience. People change, you know? But tattoos are forever.

      I also said my life doesn't revolve around sex. That doesn't mean I didn't have sex.

      Nothing I said was contradictory. Getting a tattoo is associating yourself with a negative moral stigma, showing others that you're a degenerate and don't care about your appearance to others. This is moral relativism because this was not acceptable whatsoever in the past, but now it is slightly tolerated. But again, it is not actually tolerated in work places, unless you work at minimum wage.

      > Your attitudes towards women

      You mean tattooed whores begging to be fucked and tossed away like trash? They are the ones giving it away friend. I am not interested in marrying such a woman, so I participated in their cock carousel and moved on with my life. I don't do any of that anymore, though, of course.

      > Aggressively judgemental

      Yea, that's not what degeneracy means.

      You are correct that I am being self-righteous, but only because I used to be one of those people (I didn't have a tattoo, but my friends did) and became a better person. I have every right to point out how idiotic that lifestyle is when I can see how damaging it is in hindsight.

      I understand there are hard-working, nice people with tattoos. For every one of those you show me, though, I'll show you 100 people with tattoos that are borderline homeless people with drug problems. It's just not a good way to present yourself, and is almost always associated with degenerate lifestyles. If you want to make the argument that we should focus on the 1-5% of nice tattooed people, let me remind you that 1-5% of Muslims are radical extremists. So, pick and choose your battles.

    16. "Getting a tattoo is associating yourself with a negative moral stigma, showing others that you're a degenerate and don't care about your appearance to others.

      Yeah, again that's not how moral relativism works. By your own admission the act is not itself immoral, nor is/was it viewed as such. The negative connotation came from the group doing it, therefore if the group doing it experiences a large shift to a more acceptable subset of the population than accordingly perception of the activity will change. Again I'll reference long hair and the unkept beards that are oh so popular today- unprofessional, not presenting yourself well to the world (subjectively) but not a mark of immorality.

      The problem is that your numbers are out of wack. A demographic study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (IF: 4.45) reported that of people with tattoos 24% made 40-75k, and another 19% 75K+. Also showed that 14% had bachelor's degrees, another 14% some form of graduate education. That was in 2006, and with tattoos having become even more mainstream those numbers will be even higher now. So from your 1-5% we're now up to 30-45% + that are well educated successful people.
      While not as academically reputable a 2012 Harris poll shows that 74% of people thought there was no difference in the likelihood of a person to commit deviant behavior than someone without. Similarly the majority of respondents (71-82%) felt tattoos made no difference in how they perceived a persons strength, athleticism, spirituality, intelligence, or health. The only attributes that showed a marked difference in perception were rebelliousness (more 50%) sexiness (less 39%), and attractiveness (less 45%). Similarly 68+% of people with tattoos reported "no difference" to their perception of themselves based on the above attributes.

      Simply put, in the mainstream population a tattoo is the mark of having decided to get a tattoo, nothing more. While there are more distasteful groups with higher incidence of tattoos, the tattoos themselves are not the identifying characteristic. Your highly judgmental minority opinions are no longer rooted in demographic reality, but as you admitted a sense of hypocritical self-righteousness likely born from distaste of the person you used to be (which you can conveniently distance yourself from- despite participating the degenerate behaviour you don't have a tattoo, so therefore you're better than those that do that have led otherwise parallel lives)

      Yikes, you don't seem to have changed as much as you think. It does make 8p's absolute annihilation of your argument all the sweeter though. Thanks 8p!

    1. Its true, being a bigot is pretty uncool right now. Unfortunately, like all trends, this one is likely to be cyclical. We're already seeing a backlash start to gain momentum. Angry men who can't compete with women in their field, women who can't understand the difference between equality and unfair advantages, young people sick of being silenced in the name of "safe spaces". Hopefully we don't swing back in the opposite direction too hard.
