Nam, what the flip are you talking about? We were talking about hiring a babysitter, yes? Not corporate employment. Go back and read the thread. I am pretty sure you can ask a babysitter pretty much anything you want.
I know what we're talking about. The same applies, legalities aside or not. Why would one ask questions that have nothing to do with the hiring process? Would you ask, "Do you like oral sex, or no? Do you swallow, or spit?" You wouldn't ask that because it's an inappropriate question. We're going by your standards of "I am pretty sure you can ask anything you want." -- if that's true then asking whether they like oral or spit/swallow, in your mind, is appropriate? Oh, but, that would make you the pervert, right?
You get it yet? Apparently not.
Yes, absolutely. I judge people who are coming into my home on many things which I may consider to be red flags.
And that's fine, as I said but also as I said that makes you the prejudiced one; and, perhaps that's okay but you're mind is already made up on the issue: bronies, furries, etc., are perverts in your mind and no better than child molesters--hell! they must be to be into those things. Because they are "red flags" to you.
I'd rather not wait to find out my babysitter is one of those things after I've hired him.
But you're presuming that that's what bronies and furries are, are you not? Seems like it. I would think Angus would have a problem with that, because, it seems to me: that's what you're likening him to.
But it's good to know you're not a sexist.
Yes. I would absolutely want my kids to be prejudiced against pedophiles, rapists, and murderers. I'm kind of a bigot that way.
That's not what you're saying here. You're saying since you find bronies and furries to be "icky", then, in your mind how could they be any different than those types of people. I'm not saying you'd be teaching your children to be prejudiced against rapists, murderers, child molesters, I'm saying that you'd be teaching them to be prejudiced against bronies, furries, and the like.
Let me ask a question:
If you knew absolutely nothing about me as you do here, and I interviewed to babysit your kids, and I told you I like "Strawberry Shortcake" but that I didn't dress up as any of the characters or go to conventions on the cartoon but I did have some collectables, and the complete original series on DVD, and after finding out I have never been arrested, been to jail, or somuchas commit a crime, ever -- would you hire me?
