Who's going to be the next juvenile clown to try to come up with some clever way to say "tonk" without REALLY saying it.  wink wink.  

Idiots.

At least when Lordtrader posted porn without posting porn it was funny and novel (and not done exclusively to provoke moderators or push a line).  This is stupid and childish.



Just my opinion - worth exactly what you paid for it.

My understanding is that it's a newly-invented derogatory term for illegal (mexican) immmgrants, that Ed Sr. has ASKED us not to use anymore.

Norm: You were acting like a maniac and you threatened her with a bomb.
Greg Focker: No, I said I didn't have a bomb.
Norm: But you said bomb.
Greg Focker: I said, "It's not like I have a bomb".
Norm: You said "Bomb" on an airplane.
Greg Focker: What's wrong with saying 'Bomb' on an airplane?
Norm: You can't say 'Bomb' on an airplane!
Greg Focker: Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb. You gonna arrest me? Bomb bomb bomb bomb! During the war I was a BOMBadier!

Ok. Well....

Is that seriously the best term somebody can think up for an illegal immigrant? Certainly they can do better than that.

Thanks for the explanation.

I've only heard "tonk" used as the title of a popular card game.  Not until it was banned from use did I learn that it is derogatory slang used for...honestly, I forgot who it's intended to insult.

Supposedly "tonk" is the sound of flashlight hitting someone on the head.

It is supposed to be some kind of derogatory term towards all hispanics as indicated by context, but the definitions I've seen say it applies to illegal immigrants.
One thing is for sure: I learned another slur because of efforts to contain it.



+1

I was 21 before I knew any racial slur but the N word and the word describing people of polish descent. Somebody told me not to worddescribingjewsthatrhymeswithkite them, and I had no idea what they were talking about.

Those kind of terms just weren't used in my house. Still aren't.
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:40:13 PM EDT
yeah...so WTF is up with 'tonk'?  

I think I read it somewhere here having to do with bludgeoning a migrant worker with a Maglite.  

Wouldn't 'bonk' or 'thwack' or 'thud' also work in that same situation?   Should they all be banned?

Are you serious???

I thought I knew most of the slurs (hey, worked in a very loose, humorous, young mixed race environment for a few years, I learned all kinds of new words for everybody, whities too) but I have never heard the one that has this place up in arms.
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:44:14 PM EDT
This is the first time that I've heard the word used any other way than the name of a popular card game.  Doesn't fit the use as a slur at all.

It's always the same thing.  People latch on to an ignorant catch phrase and grind it into the ground.

Kinda like wetback isn't allowed anymore because it's a slur against mexicans? Only the illegal kind.

And I would think 'tonk' would apply to white people, sorta calling them rednecks. You know, honky-tonk?

Heck, I'm still trying to figure out where cracker came from.

Has anyone here ever hit anyone over the head with a flashlight? Can you verify the "tonk" sound? Is that closer than BONK, KLONK, CLANK, THUNK, or KAPOW?

Here's how it was explained to me:

"Honky-Tonk"  

Tonk is whats left when you take the Honky away. As in when all the white people (Honky's) move out of the south west it will be nothing but the Tonks.

It seems to me, that everytime the mods and staff enforce the CoC or a request from sr. Staff and the owners, people want to try and test the electric fence.  

After enough people get electricuted they will either quite testing the fence, or move on to someone else's fence.

People seem to be so worried about losing members.  While I don't like the fact that Cav Arms is pulling away from the board, I can't say I'm gonna miss many of the others.  It's one thing to question authority. It's something completely different to provoke authority then to cry foul. It is just childish and stupid.  People are being banned and locked for causing problems and refusing to follow the rules.  

I guess I'm just growing tired of all the third grade antics that seem to be running rampant here as of late.

We should save all our bile for politicians that have disdain for "shall not infringe" and leave out the insults and slurs that only serve to stereotype groups of people and divide them.  The poor are not de facto our enemies.  They may break the law but that only makes them criminals, not sub-human.

Ok fine, let's start hurling insults at politicians......and then let the banning begin when we unfairly stereotype them with some derogatory term.

The poor are not our enemies, but law breakers are. Poor people need not usurp our laws and borders, and those that do get hit in the head with maglites....hence the word. They might be Mexican, Cuban, Canadian or whatever, but the term "tonk" is meant to ridicule people who have no respect for our laws. Why we are suddenly protecting their feelings is beyond me, and only illustrates the idiocy of political correctness. On a gun site, this is the ultimate irony.

As Humpty Dumpty says to Alice, `When I use a word...it means what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.'

`The question is,' said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.'

`The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master – that's all.'
