"what does: '... but this is OKP' mean?"
Thu Apr-02-15 11:04 AM by Deadzombie

          

does that imply that everyone who posts here is generally 'out of touch'.

or is the statement synonymous with 'but this is the internet, so ...'

i, for one, am tired of the bad-rap that OKP users are receiving.

apparently, readers think that you are all mal-adjusted, nerdy, fat, smelly, unattractive, agenda-filled, unwavering fools who can't be convinced of anything outside of your very narrow perspective.

is that an accurate assessment of this community? is that why all the 'greats' leave?

or do people just like to shit on this discussion board because it makes them seem cool and 'in touch' with them streets?

and sometimes just to be contrary or to get a rise out of people.

it happens here. it happens on the internet. and it may happen IRL if you run in weirdo type circles.

That's OKP shit

What does the 'streets' or being cool gotta do wwithshit

if a nigga cool he cool regardless of a website ...if a nigga insecure/weird/different/alternative regardless of a website...

The fact that I typed all this out makes this reply OKP shit

Cuz irl ....it wouldn't be carried like this

In response to Reply # 24
Thu Apr-02-15 11:56 AM by Deadzombie

          

and the placement of the specific reply, and the 'yall' was all-encompassing.

that's message board shit.

the exhibit A shit flew over my head.

i wasn't sure if: me making this post was OKP shit, was the tone of the post OKP shit?

I aint get it. and honestly - i feel like you don't do too much typing, so I don't expect a whole lot out of you if i were to reply, but what do you meeeeean by thaaaat.

but i was banking on the fact that both (she's likely to type a bit more) of yall could come together and form a solid response.

>The fact that I typed all this out makes this reply OKP shit
>Cuz irl ....it wouldn't be carried like this

so i want to challenge this. the fact that you explained yourself makes this OKP shit?

how would it be carried in real life?

let me try first:

i ask a question to the room.
a nigga responds by just pointing and saying 'exhibit A'
i ignore the nigga at first, cause he aint really one to explain himself to much.
then, someone else comes along and says - YEAH!, what he said'
i address you two as a group now, cause it's harder to ignore two noisy people.
you look at me and say - 'say - nigga, just ask me!'
and then look I at you and say 'oh, quiet nigga ready to talk now'
then i say - 'ok quiet nigga - talk...'

how off is that scenario?

In response to Reply # 24


          

why didn't i ask you in that other post?

i sort of did with this: "the line: 'but of course this is OKP' threw me all the way off."

but that wasn't the topic of conversation in that post.

more message board shit.

i'm still with you on the whole 'cool nigga, regardless of a website'

>Cuz irl ....it wouldn't be carried like this

but im still not adding this up.

what are the major differences?

the only thing i could think of is tough typing.

and i give everyone the assumption that it's something they'd say in real life.

For good and bad. But when people call it out...95% of the time, it's either bad or just way way different.

I've seen so many opinions on here that I would never, ever ever hear in person or "real life." Even funnier, OKP's here don't even act or talk the same way in person.

It's almost like everyone has to fit into an OKP persona, because they know they'll be judged for speaking the way they do in real life. And although people away from OKP/the Internet may feel the same way about things as those here, it's not as common, and usually won't be as loudly spoken.

18. "Perfect example is when my ex sucked dick in public."
In response to Reply # 10


  

          

So I told the same story to about 8 of my friends, six were women. Same tone, but omitted the "cool story, ho" part.

Except one...ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL of them were shocked, and were like "that's hoe behavior!" "She's wild!" "Hell naw, the hell is her problem??"

And let OKP tell it, that means I have friends who are judgmental, stuck in the past, operate on double standards that have been brainwashed into us due to patriarchy. But nope, that's just the normal reaction from most regular folks. So yeah, that was a true "Only on OKP" moment.

In response to Reply # 18


          

i remember reading and trying to imagine how you feel about an ex lover sucking dick in public.

there's a reasonable assumption that you included that 'ho' part because it's easier for you to turn your nose up at her decision. specifically because she's an ex.

telling that story in person probably lends itself better to you being unaffected.

In response to Reply # 25


  

          

People in general always have negative feelings about an ex, and will use ANY fuel against them. Whether it's serious hatred, or just light hearted fun.

I surely wouldn't have added that line if it was about ANYONE else, whether it was a homegirl, or just a random girl I heard about.

Quite a few of us laughed it off too til we got to the "cool story, heaux" part and we even said that. This pretty much confirms for me that you were def trolling that day if you had enough sense to omit that irl.

here for dis.

You can tell tone a whole lot easier when it's told in person. And with that line...I couldn't even say that while telling it to someone in a story. In most of the cases, before I even got to the end of the story, people were like "wait...what???" and asking questions.

In response to Reply # 42


  

          

The conversation IRL didn't poast - but you didn't say 'cool story ho' so I dunno if your friends wouldve ignored that and gone full-bore with the slut shaming. It seems the 'playery' part of the poast was the lecturing about 'cool story hi' instead of pearl clutching about the public performance.

fuck you.

The normal reaction IS judgmental, stuck in the past and operating on double standards. Misogyny hurts everybody even women who express it.

Think about it outside of getting herpes in the mouf or semen in the eye...who is she hurting really??

46. "To be fair...even a guy couldn't get away with this."
In response to Reply # 35


  

          

The folks who reacted and said it was "hoe" behavior surely wouldn't judge it the same if she did the usual "meet a guy at the club and have sex."

We have actually all clowned one of my boys who is pretty damn dirty...for example, he ate a stripper out in a gas station parking lot within 15 minutes of meeting her. So he gets judged even worse...some girls in our circle don't take him serious at all, and will even give a heads up to women who he's into.

So it's not always about being judgmental or one sided against women only...even if "hoe" isn't the word that is used for men.

And it's also why it's not just OKP but on many message boards that lend themselves well to arguing online. The people who feel the strongest about an issue in one direction or the other are gonna be the people who actually participate in that specific post. The people who are really the majority and in the middle are like "Eh" and either just read the post for lols or keep scrolling until they find a post that touches a nerve. Like you said, waiting to find the post that makes them want to put on their cape.

So when you're reading a typical post with tons of arguments back and forth it's just the people on the extremes of the issue and it feels like on here everyone is extremely against the "norm".

it's part of the attraction of the place. so yeah, non-traditional opinions and behaviors will be cosigned here.

DUH.

and yes, we know that many of our opinions and behaviors are non-traditional.

DUH.

and no, we don't give a shit what the folks 'in the streets' or at the barbershop or at church or where ever have to say that contradicts what we say here.

DUH.

we are comfortable expressing alternative opinions and living alt-lives. we don't care that we are a minority in the larger world. we do us anyway. we come here to find some kindred spirits and to sharpen our stances.

so telling us that we're 'oddball' is like

DUH.

fuck you.

i agree...just ask the man who replied w/that.

i dunno but i assume he meant that your theory in that post is bullshit and he suspects you're only putting it forth b/c you want a poast. THAT is OKP. but it's also the Internet, generally. also, he could've meant that we at OKP have a tendency to seek out complicated answers to simple questions/issues. we tend to make more of things than needs to be made of them. but i dunno what he meant. and he can say.

fuck you.

esp because i'm old
septum piercing from 93-95

i fit IN with my gentrified neighborhood now

but Black folk now LIKE tattoos and piercings and locks and punk (dress not music) and goth and now just a neighborhood away theres a filled neighborhood or three of alt black folk

that now its just mainstream

black atheists are picking up momentum
black latinos are surfacing
afro punk is an actual thing..and gone corporate
and then there is black twitter
heh

and we are still here
doing...us
*shrug*

its a wide range of folk on here on one hand so its not "only on okp"
we technically are out in the real world so its not "only on okp"
but yes some of us have been here for a while and the world is realizing shit that used to slide
aint gonna slide no mo'
and some folks still don't get it and get caught on social media fucking up not realizing
the world now has to stand up with a public face for what it claims to stand for
so technically its not okp thats out of touch

i have decided that whoever is disagreeing with me
has an unreasonable position,
and sees the world so differently than me that it is
not worth seeking mutual understanding
or common ground.

for example, it is not worth me
explaining why you are a homophobe
because this is okayplayer.

it is not worth you explaining
why you are not because this is okayplayer.

it is not worth you telling me
that I am bringing up gay shit
to discredit your perfectly neutral, devoid of context post
because this is okayplayer.

you made this post to troll for
responses even though you will
play innocent because this is okayplayer.

it is not worth you explaining
why you aren't a troll because this is okayplayer.


it means the poster has no interest in having the samw conversation again when it is
already known by both parties
that the discussion is not worth it.


it is an attempt to marganilize an opinion by casting the speaker
as the lone voice of reason on the forum.


it's a clever rhetorical trick
but I usually disregard ppl
that use it too often.


because this is okayplayer.

i got a little slammed for it on some "YOU POST HERE TOO" shit and that's true.

i still think it's strange we spend a good part of our productive hours typing/talking to each other on screen but yet I'm just as much a part of it anyone.

i don't know if i'm weird or not and don't care so much. but the need to call something "playery" does seem like someone's joning versus just noting it's uniqueness.
