Just found this website and wanted to share it with my Zebra 3 readers
The story I just read and am commenting on my blog here is found at this link about the iceman:
The only one word I heard used that was somewhat "an itch" to read was the use of the word "bum" in the context and the line itself seemed to poke humor or somewhat a yuppie sentence with the word bum being used" (( Fashion week may be over in New York but I am sure one of those young funky designers would have jumped on this urban retro look creating a line of bum couture. ))
I have done it my self but i personally feel it carries a slight if not well contended (not saying intended) notion this is a degenerate a sub standard or un-excepted type of person.
It is just my opinion that this using of the word is derogatory is in sort of a "political correct" correction.
Now in my vocabulary I do use the word "bumming" like he was bumming around or he was begging and bumming food and water" ....more in the line of an adjective of an action taking place
Yes ... I used to but no longer like to refer to the people who happen to be homeless or are "street people" as bums ...... it's my opinion....that I am trying to not use this word as in a way to show dignity and respect.
SO ..........HEADS UP Z3 READERS!!
As I read more of the next few stories on this website I start to see sort of continuing use of the word "bum" and a sort of callous sarcasm. In fact i am not alone ...
At this link which i found on their very website in a boastful way seems to me like it may be hitting the nail closer straight on.
I bet within a few minutes you may feel like I am starting to feel
And I am not sure this website street people .com it is all peaches and cream!
