Not to strawman or anything, but PDS: did you protest when gay people said they didn't want to be called "faggot" anymore?

I saw it with my Chosen Family -- they were cackling at Rachel Weisz.

Shade knows shade.

The usual bullshit. Talking about slavery as if it had happened to them rather than having ended 30 or 40 years before the oldest people in the world were born. Blaming the continued existence of racism and sexism on people talking the wrong way and rolling out new politically correct terms to replace the old ones (or sometimes refurbished variants of really old ones; how is the term "people of color" any better than the term "colored people", how the fuck is talking like Yoda going to help anybody!? Politically correct speech is just a cheap easy pseudo-solution to a complex problem, the societal equivalent of trying to cure cancer by reciting long-winded prayers). Acting as if the KKK et al were representative of white people (which, BTW, is buying into the KKK's propaganda). Generalizing from isolated incidents. Acting as if non-minorities collectively comprised some kind od illuminati-like secret society that controls everything in an organized fashion. Affirming the consequent (All the politically powerful people are white men. Joe the Bum is a white man. Joe the bum is politically powerful).

Stuff that, while harmless (unlike the right's bullshit which is often actively harmful), is nevertheless really really stupid and undermines people's ability to take the left seriously.


There's a lot to unpack here, but I'd rather just set it on fire.

I'm ok with a chair beatdown in that scenario.

How did those pics survive the photobucket purge?  I sure as hell didn't buy a subscription.

Well, it's good to be the one holding the leash then, I guess?

I started looking for the appropriate line length, and then noticed you had a rhythm going in your sentence structure.  The rest simply fell into place from there.
