    Actually, if you do text, it's an actual phrase.

    They won't care or know as long as we take care and love them. What we call them doesn't matter

    Calling humans "people" is derogatory. I won't stand for it.

    Yes, that's what I said, though perhaps not as clearly as I thought.
    ASCII is a standard for encoding text characters as binary code. I'm just being more specific, that's all.

    Nah, I'm just used to only seeing ASCII when it comes to keyboard art. So the confusion was simply on my end.

    *reads through article* . . .
    *goes on Google*
    Define: Pet.
    a domesticated animal kept for companionship or amusement
    darling: a special loved one
    stroke or caress gently; "pet the lamb"
    a fit of petulance or sulkiness (especially at what is felt to be a slight)
    stroke or caress in an erotic manner, as during lovemaking
    positron emission tomography: using a computerized radiographic technique to examine the metabolic activity in various tissues (especially in the brain)
    favored: preferred above all others and treated with partiality; "the favored child"
    wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn
    How is pet derogatory? Shouldn't they be happy to be called a pet?
    Plus, I never say, "Come here pet! Ohhh, that's a good pet. Good job you caught the ball, pet!"
    If you're calling your pet, "pet" all the time, sure that might be a bit mean. But most people name their pets which would be a sign of endearment, no?

    Oh, and my friend calls her dog "dumb dog" all the time and it just wags its tail. Like, "Oh come here dumb dog!" *dog wags tail and runs over happily*

    I suppose fish should be called sea kittens too.
    If each mistake being made is a new one, then progress is being made.

    The word mut is insulting to animals. The word mudblood is insulting to wizards and even humans.
