    This thread seems less like a discussion of anything really and more like an excuse to call people politically charged names like "SJW," "Snowflake," and "PC." I'm surprised it has lasted as long as it has.

    My bad.  I was trying to make a general statement, but apparently some people felt they resembled that remark.
    Just a FYI.  It's Resent, not resembled.

    Resent means "to despise, to feel offended by, to be angry at", etc.

    Resembled means "to be similar to", which.... kinda fits but is much more of a stretch. The original saying was "resent" but somewhere along the line people started misremembering it and used "resemble" instead, probably because they sound similar and "resemble" kinda technically works but fails to convey the "That guy is angry" emotional context that "resent" does.

    I guess at least "resemble" vs "resent" makes more context sense than the "rouge" (red) vs "rogue" (thief, D&D class, etc) mistake that so many people keep making, although I'm still surprised it's seeped into the collective conscious so much since "resemble" has an entire extra syllable compared to "resent"
    I'm aware.  The commonly misused interpretation happened to fit, so I used it.
