  •  Look, you're either missing or avoiding my point. (9+ / 0-)

    I've read your replies.  The problem is not that I'm not reading them, it's that they are either obtuse or evasive.

    I point out to you that you're wrong about the homophobia/transphobia on this site, and rather than address this point, you try to pin some dispute you're having with another gay man on me.  When I point that out to you, and try to explain to you how it's an example of the kind of homophobia you claim to decry, you don't seem to see what I'm saying.

    Like I said, you probably need to bring this discussion about Michael to Michael.  I can't help you there.  If you're really so clueless that you don't see what's wrong with blaming one gay man for something another gay man has allegedly done, then you need a lot more education in homophobia/heterosexism than I can provide in this limited space.

    •  I'm reading incredibly fast... apologies (7+ / 0-)

      It's very late here, and I'm dealing with whole raft of comments on this and other diaries before I log off - it's 2.00 am in Poland - possibly for good.

      I'm sorry if you thought I was creating any Olympic analogy - any kind of prejudice is wrong, and I can well believe that homophobia/transphobia is rife here too. And yes, I probably miss a lot of it. Tell me when it happens, if I ever come back I'll happily hiderate it.

      As for Michael - I actually have no personal problem with him, despite his animosity towards me. It isn't the issue, it was a hurried passing analogy (I wrote this diary in 10 mins).  Given the circumstances you're going to have to forgive me for infelicities of expression, and my inability given the hour and the circumstances to engage with this further. It's not that I don;t want to learn - I actually read a lot of LGBT diaries - but that at this moment, on this weekend, in this purge, I haven't heard they have been decimated in the same way as BKos.

      I hope you understand and forgive my hurried responses.
