An Offensive Survey!: Buffalo (Wyo.) High football coach Pat Lynch resigned his position after he offered a questionnaire to his players so they could easily explain the reason of any hurt feelings in the locker room. Reason for filing this report (Check box): "I am a queer", "I have woman like hormones", "I am a little bitch". Also, please provide the name of the "real man who hurt your sensitive little feelings" and your own "girly-man signature". Now that he has resigned, he can continue to focus his efforts as a, wait for it...... Guidance Counselor, yep.

It's hard to imagine a job that he is less suited for than guidance counselor. This was not some off-the-cuff thing. He put a lot of time in that survey, which shows what an asshole he really is.

From the picture, I cant see this guy getting angry.

Let me guess, he thinks that *everything* is just more evidence of the wussification of America.

I'm pretty sure he spent almost zero time on the survey, as it looks like one of those things that gets emailed among people as a "Haha look at this!" joke.

Yeah, real funny. Wonder if he's still laughing! Moron.

I knew I'd seen something like this before. The Army Hurt Feelings Report Form.

Motivational speaker?

Well, judging from the looks of him, there's a job that he would be extremely well suited for.

Probably doesn't pay much.

The authorities are always looking for extra hombres to fill out police lineups. He'd be a natural in any of them.

The article doesn't explain why he gave out that questionnaire.

If there weren't really any complaints, and he just thought the survey he found on the web was funny, then perhaps too much was made of this.

He did not write that himself, so he spent no time on it. It appears to be a joke that went south. In bad taste to be sure, and in this politically correct time that we live in, one shouldn't make offensive remarks.

I think you lose internet arguments for a month for using that set of words in that order.

nah, when you're my age, and thus can remember when jokes didn't necessarily cause national alarm, you get a pass.

Besides, I wasn't really arguing anything.

I don't remember fondly the time when people could make nigger jokes with impunity. I prefer these PC times.

Growing up in Texas in the '70s, we played "smear the queer" and went "nigger-knocking." God bless political correctness.

Jokes of questionable taste are still very much told with impunity. By comedians. In clubs or on stage in a room full of adults that understand that they are jokes. Maybe not right, and certainly not PC, but it happens nonetheless.

But when those jokes are told by a high school football coach/guidance counselor to 15 year old boys in a locker room, it seems way off base.

Perhaps, and perhaps not. Just because no one complained (15 year old boy complaining about the coach that can cut you, on a subject where you risk social ostracism at best for choosing the other side) doesn't mean no one was bothered by it. Just because no one was bothered by it (if that is the case) doesn't mean no one was harmed. I remember once being out for drinks with coworkers, all white, when a white manager made a racist joke about an African-American coworker who was not present. With a little bit of thought, I think you can see several reasons why that wasn't a "no harm done" situation.
