Me being racist would be statistically impossible. I'm biracial, so it might make me explode, or the universe could turn inside out. Besides, I'm not even the one making fun of them. Other people made comments hinting at "intimate" contact between two Hutts, and I commented on how disgusting I thought that was.

Really? So Jae, RH, Prime et al are racists? Or are you merely busting his cajones? The absurdity of the image has as much to do with size as anything. Making 'em big fat humans would be about as unsightly.

I never said I was. I noted what many adults thought about me. I only act all prim and proper when I'm out in public. When I get home I'm just like any other geeky fourteen year old. In other words: I have no life.

Whoowee, two big fat living beings having sex with each other, sure did make me vomit a whole bucket, how unimaginably absurd a scenario that is.

No, but I sure thought about getting a barf bucket or three.

nah most 14-year olds have those, you just try to compensate for your lack of social interactivity with your peers by leading yourself to believe you're too mature for them

What are you a reporter? I never said I was too mature for anyone. I don't believe I am too mature for anyone. All of my friends live 45 minutes to an hour away from me, so I don't see them that often. But since your obviously going to find something wrong with everything I say, and continue antagonizing me until the day one of us croaks, I don't know why I even bother.

Exactly, this is why we can't edit things, see, our alliance is built on spontaneity. Refer to former chatlogs for further theorisation.

I hope I have provided suitable entertainment for you gentlemen . If so then my job here is done.

Now back on-topic: Does anyone else have an opinion about the lack of Aliens in a species filled galaxy? Or shall I ask the mods to close the thread?

Yeah I agree with TSR, Emperor Devon your practically bullying him due to his age while leaving the other people who were also grossed out like Jae, Redhawke, Prime and Camo-Man 07.

Admitably this is more aimed at Emperor Devon To paraphrase Sabretooth "Laughing at a person younger than yourself isn't a good laugh, it's ageism."

Having a joke is one thing but then there is taking it too far.
[/OFFTOPIC]

Back ontopic now:
I think that aliens in Starwars are often displayed negatively with only the most despicable sides of their race being seen onscreen such as working as bounty hunters and thugs often seen onscreen (Rodians and Trandoshans are such an example) and only having one or two good aliens such as the Jedi introduced in the newer trilogy or Yoda who's species appears to be entirely noble and good judging from Yaddle,Vandar and Yoda.

Oxford Dictionary disagrees this is type of Ageism is also known as Adultism which I suppose would be more correct term to use.

Technically Ageism is also correct as the two base words 'age' (which applies an age range) and 'ism' which refers to a distinctive system of beliefs, myth, doctrine or theory that guides a social movement, institution, class or group in relation to the prior word such as race, age, sex etc.

Quote:
-ism \-ism\ [F. -isme, or L. -ismus, Gr. ?.]
A suffix indicating an act, a process, the result of an act
or a process, a state; also, a characteristic (as a theory,
doctrine, idiom, etc.); as, baptism, galvanism, organism,
hypnotism, socialism, sensualism, Anglicism.

So Sabre and ED, joke over, move along. Being bored is one thing, but trolling someone and borderline flaming is another.
