Tweaks[edit]

Is there any way to modify the template to be able to get the possessive form out of it? {{Ken|'s}}? or somesuch to bee-eww-tify the wiki when someone wants to say something about  K e n  D o l l 's obsessions?

size[edit]

I was thinking of resizing this as I did with the possessive, compare and comment please:  K e n  D o l l   K e n D o l l ' s , thanks C®ackeЯ

Please do. Small an as unintrusive as possible, please. Scarlet A.pngpostate 20:01, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Agree. Smaller is better. mb 20:07, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, normal text height ought to be fine. Also, the ken|s idea is a good one, it can be done "easily". ħumanUser talk:Human 01:03, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
The  K e n D o l l ' s  is {{kens}}. C®ackeЯ 03:06, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Why do we even have it?[edit]

Given that Ken is (probably) not a well person, harping on him with this template reminds me a lot of (public) schoolyard bullies dissing the "'tard" each and every time they can. C®ackeЯ 22:18, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Time to go.[edit]

Three and a half years is a lot of mileage for a lame joke. Time to move on. P-Foster Talk "a cheetos-eating, Mountain-Dew drinking vlogger living in someone's basement." 23:38, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Agreed, mostly because of Cracker's above comment about "schoolyard bullies dissing the 'tard." Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:43, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
It's not something I use but it should not be deleted because it has been used so many times. If you want to get rid of it then change it to a plain text 'Ken'. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 00:00, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
That's a better idea than deleting and having Bluebot sicked on the wiki again. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 00:16, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Substing simply wouldn't work here, what with all the times it has been used in wigos. Peter Monomorium antarcticum 01:15, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

I smell homophobia[edit]

Good to see you are finally deleting this. Took you a while. Sarah Parker (talk) 01:11, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Not quite deleting ('cause that would break the software) , but making it unnoticeable, yah. I see where you're coming from re: the implicit homophobia, but you gotta understand the context is laughing at the idea that a blatant homophobe is, in our satirical hive-mind, a brutally repressed closet case. I don't think anyone here would seriously direct anti-gay slurs at someone who wasn't a nasty gay-hater, which the target of this template assuredly is.

But most nasty gay-haters are gay. When I was struggling with my own sexual orientation, I went through a period of being pretty homophobic too. Casual, passing homophobia, maybe not, but I am sure that anyone who devotes a significant chunk of their life's energies to homophobia is homosexual or bisexual. Sarah Parker (talk) 01:21, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm sure there's some number of gay-haters who are closet cases, but I've never read any studies with solid data on the question. These days, I'm really questioning the limitations inherent in using strict categories of "gay" and "straight" to begin with. Thinking outside of that sort of bipolarity would make the whole question of the link between homophobia and homosexuality even more complex.
