Tattoo on the scrotum? Well, that took some balls!

Still, he deserved the sack, I guess.

(And comments link goes back to post @orenwolf - do you still want to be notified of these? They seem to be happening more often, again, and I’m not sure how else they get fixed.)

ETA the same happens with the ‘boulder split in two’ post - also by Jess Sabine. Does she use the same tools Xeni used to use? (Whistles nonchalantly.) :wink:

Came here wondering how a tattoo of a testicle, aesthetically questionable as it might be, could land someone in jail for 19 months. Found a bargain basement Nazi that enjoys drinking and showing his nuts to anyone who will sit still. Leaving now wondering how it is that morons like this are gaining power all over the world.

I imagine he isn’t too popular with the rest of the army now that morning parade features a testicle inspection.

I hear he only decided to get a swastika tattoo on his nuts when he discovered National Socialism wouldn’t fit on his penis.

In the words of Brad Pitt, what a nut bag.

Because promotion of Nazism is illegal in Austria and Germany.

It’s questionable from a purely humanity level, not just an aesthetic level. Given that the US has our own problems with white supremacists in the military and police, maybe we should think a bit differently about the relationship between speech and violent rhetoric?

A swastika tattoo on your balls: when you want effective birth control but can’t afford condoms.

They always do, because they think they are special and will get away with it…

Point was, I interpreted the headline as concerning a tattoo of a scrotum which is stupid and aesthetically questionable, not (as it turned out) a tattoo of a swastika on a scrotum which is stupid and morally objectionable.

I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again: words matter. The ideas that take root in our collective consciousness are the ideas that shift the Overton window, and there is no shortage of recent object lessons in what happens when the unspeakable becomes commonplace.
