If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place

I really could come out whenever I want but I don’t want to deal with people being all overly supportive like ‘we’ll support you’ like no shit, Mom, you grew up near the Castro.

Maybe go casual and just start acting as if they already know, like you came out to them months ago and they just forgot.

Yeah, do this. You’re under no obligation to actively inform anyone in your life of your orientation.

Politics 2: Electric Boogaloo

I used to do this a lot where I’d take the most obviously insane and dumbass example of a group’s stupidity no matter how obscure and present it as though it’s a representation of the group I’m against. I’m trying not to do it anymore. Even the most oppressive strands of feminism in mainstream discourse are not presenting anything resembling “kill all men.”

I’m taking a few classes over the summer, and one of them is this required communications course. Today, the teacher mentioned how a misogynist disagreed with a feminist’s position to “kill all men”. And yet… I feel like any rational human being would disagree with that.

Needless to say, I find it very difficult to take this teacher seriously.

That teacher sounds like a stupid pile of shit. And yes, rational human beings don’t agree with killing all men.

mfm, somehow you’re arguing against what I didn’t post.

Forgive me for not understanding the most incomprehensible person in this thread.

This didn’t start because you criticized Trump. This started with your accusation that Jay supports Trump and/or is unclear for not saying bad things about Trump when discussing a policy choice.

That isn’t why I said that. I said he is obviously pro-Trump to an extent because he deflects criticism of Trump to other people that are often irrelevant to the criticism almost all the time. I gave you many examples of how this is the case but you ignored all of them, which is a trend I’m seeing a lot in this thread.

I emphasized that obviously I’m not saying you shouldn’t criticize Trump. Do it to your heart’s content. But don’t demand others do so or insist they’re pro-Trump if they don’t. That is what we’re talking about.

You’re obviously saying that too much or too harsh of criticism of Trump is somehow objectionable. I had a similar argument with Warbler when he was more concerned about the feelings of Catholics than the protests against Pope John Paul II over his role in the child-rape scandals in the Roman Catholic Church. He felt that too harsh or too mean of a criticism of that man for allowing priests to rape children repeatedly was inappropriate because it would offend Catholics. I didn’t call him a Pope John Paul II supporter but I think I did call him a Pope John Paul II apologist or something. There’s a difference between the two. I didn’t say Jay was a Trump supporter or even that he was pro-Trump. I said he had an obvious pro-Trump bias, and he does. I have an anti-Trump bias, but I don’t pretend otherwise.

The idea that every discussion of current policy boils down to being pro-Trump or anti-Trump is the obsession I’m addressing.

I never said that. The point I was addressing was that redirecting every bad thing Trump does to someone else is a form of Trump apologetics. It really shouldn’t even be controversial. A lot of liberals did it with Obama. Whenever he’d do something totally illiberal there was always an excuse for it from center-right Democrats pretending to be liberals. Now it’s happening with Trump.

The Something Political Thread (Was: Random Political Thoughts)
Time

I have not met even a single person that thinks every Trump voter was a crazy racist, and that includes people I know that hate Trump so much that they hope he dies before leaving office. The idea that any substantial amount of Democrats think that all of his voters are racists is ironically an easy out for Republicans.

That’s exactly the kind of shit I’m talking about. He’s the fucking President of the United States. Accusing me, or anyone, of being obsessed with him because we comment on news stories regarding him is fucking ridiculous. How about this: “You’re just obsessed with mankind because you’re always talking about people!” See how ridiculous that is? Why the fuck is it an obsession to frequently talk about the President of the United States in the politics thread? How much am I allowed to criticize one of the most important people on earth right now before it’s an “unhealthy obsession”? The rest of your post was total gibberish to my eyes so I can’t respond to it. I have no idea what you’re getting at by claiming my argument is that Jay needs to break down his views on the handling of sexual assault cases. That wasn’t my argument at all. In fact, that summary of my argument is so off-base that I’m not even sure if you read my post. I have no clue what you’re talking about so I can’t give any kind of response to the rest of your post. I would if I knew what you were talking about but, like many of your posts, I simply don’t understand what you’re saying so I can’t address it. Anyway, your accusation of me having a Trump obsession is absurd. I guess from now on in this thread I’ll just discuss more relevant people like the mayor of Oklahoma City or the county judge in Helena, Montana.
